We came here based on previous reviews and were definitely not disappointed! Our server was fantastic from making our cocktails, to explaining the menu, to steaming milk for our individual coffee pots! A truly personal experience. My husband and I had the 3 course chef’s tasting menu and the food was fantastic! It was worth the adventure to let the chef’s creativity guide the meal. We will be back!!

We enjoyed our latest visit to Madison's grill. We went there for our anniversary and they set us up with one of the best tables. They also gave us a glass of sparkling wine. Very nice touch. The food is very well done. Like that they don't try to overdo the menu but have enough options for everyone. The service was spectacular it's always nice to be served by a professional who knows when to step in and when to stay back. The room is very comfortable and has a great ambiance. Highly recommended.

The restaurant has an incredible ambience and menu, but the service is atrocious.

- The maitre d' is disinterested and dismissive, seemingly suffering from a "I am great and special since I work in a special place" mind set

- The servers could not recommend a single cocktail other than those in the menu, since there is no proper bartender here

- The food order for 4 people over lunch too 35 minutes. When we asked the server, she reminded us of the correct time the order was placed (which made it 25 minutes to the conversation, which was acceptable to her apparently).

This place suffers from complacency based on being in a market that is not demanding and does not have too many decent dining options, and wears it proudly on its sleeves.

We were celebrating our anniversary and decided to try the food tasting menu with wine pairings at Madison's Grill. It was chef's choice so we didn't know exactly what to expect, but red snapper appetizer, strip loin entre, and meringue with strawberries/whipped cream dessert were all delicious and the wines were perfect. Our server Todd was a true professional and looked after everything seamlessly. F&B Manager Kevin was very gracious and even brought out Chef David to meet us. I would recommend this local gem to anyone!

We were there for a quiet lunch. The food was superb, fish and chips and Caesar salad wrap. We had time to order and time to visit before the food was served as well as un-rushed time to visit after our lunch. The restaurant is clean and inviting. We had a table by a window and totally enjoyed our meal. The staff were most accommodating and friendly, but not gushy!

We were a last minute booking and Madison Grill did superb! The chef is creative and has a sense of whimsy which is reflected in the dessert menu. Panna cotta with sea salt caramel and popcorn infused whipped cream is delightful.

When I asked for the waiter if the chef could substitute beans due to a personal preference I was accommodated. The chef used lovely, green, crisp snap peas. The lamb was tender and moist, it fell off the bone.

My husband and I had a rare night out to celebrate our anniversary. We had the best meal we have both ever had. The food was second to none. I felt very special and taken care of. Excellent service. It was a beautiful intimate atmosphere. This is defiantly a hidden gem. We will be back. Special thank you to Clayton. You can tell he loves his job. He was pleasant, efficient and made me feel very pampered. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful evening out.

My wife and I went here for our 5th anniversary. Everything was perfect. I had amazing mushroom stuffed chicken wrapped with prosciutto and potatoes and veggies. My wife had the lamb shank. It was cooked perfectly, fell off the bone but still moist and full of flavour. Our waiter was very pleasant and we were well cared for without him being overbearing. We skipped dessert as we were to full from our dinners; however the waiter brought us a plate with chocolate covered cherries and well wishes written in chocolate. It was very nice and an excellent way to end our anniversary meal. We will definitely be back again!

We have made Madison's our dining place of choice several times when in Edmonton. It was my husbands birthday this last time and the dinner was excellent from the duck he had to the lamb I loved. Great choice of wine. The presentation on the birthday cake was very nice just didn't match the anticipated taste:-(

Small portions for lunch. Pan-fried salmon overcooked and mushroom swiss burger was dry. Kitchen forgot to execute special dietary request. Server unfamiliar on menu items. Better lunch options elsewhere unless you prefer the upscale atmosphere.

My partner and I dined at Madison's Grill last weekend, and as usual, it didn't disappoint. It was a slow Friday night but the food was great. My partner had the rabbit and I had the lamb. We both felt we had the better dish, which is always a good sign. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient without being cloying or smothering. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful and professional. You simply cannot go wrong at Madison's Grill.

I have been to Madison's Grill a number of times given its close proximity to my office. In general, the food is good quality. This time the food was not up to their normal standard. I had the potato crusted fish and chips and I found the potatoes were not cook enough and had a bit of a raw taste. The fish was fine, as were the fries that accompanied the dish. I generally order this meal at lunch as it is relatively light, given it is fish and chips, but this time it was under whelming and not worth the cost.

Almost 8 years since my last visit and I’m delighted to say that neither the food nor the service disappointed.

The only negative is that they ran out of Grey Goose!

We’ll definitely be back.

This was my first time going to Madison Grill. Our server was Kevin, the beverage and food manager. He was so personal, kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food was excellent! They were able to accommodate my dietary needs of no dairy without batting an eye. Best brunch that I have had in awhile! The room is gorgeous as well : ).

We had an excellent dinner for our anniversary. The wait staff and the mood could not have been better and my Old Fashioned was perfect! My steak could have been a better cut and better cooked however my wife had a filet and it was fantastic. Overall a very nice evening and truly love the atmosphere for a quiet dinner.

This is the third time I've been to Madison's for dinner and, as always, it was absolutely amazing! The service was great and the food was exceptional.
I went during downtown dining week and had the Winding Road Perogies, Surf and Turf, and the Crème Caramel. Everything was delicious. The lamb with the Surf and Turf was the best lamb I've ever had!
If you are looking for fine dining at its best, I highly recommend Madison's.
