We were staying at the Old Edwards Inn and Madison’s was an easy choice for dinner. Service is exemplary. The food is well-prepared and very high quality. I had a scallop and halibut special and my wife, a filet. My halibut was cooked perfectly but the scallops were slightly under-done—more like sushi than pan-grilled. We shared the feature soufflé for desert and it was the highlight of the meal.

Prices are not for the faint-hearted, especially if you have a a couple of glasses of wine. Dinner for the two of us, with tip, approached $250.

Beautiful ambiance and excellent service by Lisa. We were meeting longtime friends that we had not seen in a while and we were able to enjoy a very relaxed and delicious lunch.

Amazingly delicious food. The martini, made by our server, Emilee, was perfect. She was attentive and friendly but didn’t hover. Every dish was perfect and the Passion fruit soufflé with creme anglaise was a complete dream that We will never forget!

Sitting outside near the waterfall and beautiful flowers made us feel like we were in a friend’s private garden. Our server Penny Jo was delightful and our drinks and lunch arrived quickly and were delicious. The Basil-seared chicken salad is something I’ll reorder, my husband’s farm burger had all of his favorites, pimento cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, Aioli. We will come again!

If only Atlanta had a restaurant as nearly perfect as Madison's in Highlands. We have been many times since the current operation opened its doors adjacent to the Old Edwards Inn. If ever there was a restaurant that deserved even more than 5 stars, Madion's would be one. The service is impecable, yet quiet enough for a romantic evening. The food is always wonderfully presented.
