Mad Chef has shown itself to be consistently great -- food and customer service! It was my Mom's and baby niece's first time, and they enjoyed it. Ethan was an awesome server. I wouldn't mind him waiting on my family & I again -- great personality and knowledge of the menu. We thank him and Mad Chef for creating such a breezy experience. We had no complaints -- other than you all not having any warm drink cups for our coffee to go. We will surely be back to our "let's meet halfway" spot.

Menu was great. Our Server was knowledgeable, personable, and professional. Food was delicious. We sat outside and it was comfortable and delightful (the manager even fired up the stylish propane heaters for us) ... until it rained. They seemlessly moved us inside, which was comfortable and delightful. The real highlight of the meal was the Zeppole. If you have room when you go, you HAVE to order the Zeppole.

Initially our impression of Mad Chef! was great but due to follow up discussions with the owner on a bill error we now have to say it should be renamed to Mad Dinner!
In the end substitution of the wine ordered, but not identified, lead to a $100 increase in the bill. Owners response to the error included “our apparent inability to read a wine list” and his claim of low profit margins prohibited any inclination to correct the situation. The food was good but any guest must scrutinize the food and drink ordered as it arrives, along with the final bill, to avoid making up for their low profit margins.

The pork chop special was fantastic! Moist and flavorful…not that we’d expect anything different from MadChef. Their food is always a winner. Excellent service and hands on management tops the experience. We heard a few first timers raving. Mad Chef earns their own great reviews. You can never go wrong with anything here.

Our food was phenomenal, and the outdoor seating was truly lovely. So grateful for cool evenings! Everyone we encountered was friendly and wonderfully conversational, but our server was… *unusually* talkative, to the point of awkwardness a few times. Eek! Definitely going to visit again, though, to try more of the menu! My steak, potatoes, and asparagus were phenomenal—perfectly cooked and full of flavor!

Food, service, and ambience at this restaurant were simply great. We had outside seating so noise from outside may have been different than inside. The food was great - from appetizers, to main meal, to dessert, and drinks. Every bite was simply delicious and their drink special was very tasty. Service was great. Our server was sweet and accommodating. Very attentive and nice. Even the server giving us the food was funny and personable. Overall, it was a great experience and I look forward to going back.
