This is our second time here, We love the waiter and was actually sat in the same exact spot both times lol, By the window, which is unfortunately a little breezy and it was cold both times. That is my only complaint, that and I wish we could afford to come more often, lol. My husband had the Beef Wellington and had to share it was soooo good OMG! I have the fall menu (3 course meal) which was $55 it was amazing and affordable! Love love love this place. And we love our waiter! amazing

It was very lovely to have dinner here. The decor and ambience is cozy and old Victorian style. It's a total time shift to dine here. The service was phenomenal, it absolutely made the entire dinner 10/10. I felt so pampered and we'll treated. Can't wait to come back.

Food was delicious, ambience warm and welcoming, service was flawless. My only complaint is the difficulty parking. While spots are available and reserved for hotel guests, none are set aside for dining room patrons. I would encourage that whe people call to reserve that parking options be discussed.

Been going to Madison's Grill for a number of years and the meals tonight were below par. Salad dressing was very tart - too much lemon? Scallops were good but were quite small; Salmon was not fresh - seemed like it was previously frozen; risotto was dry slightly undercooked and lacked flavor. Beef Wellington was tasty but pastry was not crisp and the mashed potatoes were cold. At this price point you need to have these items correct. Service was very good. Won't be rushing back but will likely give them another chance in the future.

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 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:-(

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.
