The waitress seemed rushed she didn’t tell us the specials. I don’t feel like she had time to take care of her table and she was too worried about other things. I would’ve liked to ask for a water but I felt like I didn’t really wanna bother her the food was OK and they were out of calamari I would not come back because I did not feel like I was very important and there are a lot of other restaurants that make you feel like you’re important and it’s worth the money that you’re spending. it was it was pretty expensive To be treated as if you’re Eating at a diner.

The place was way over priced. Average food at a high price.
Also there was a piece of paper in my daughter's sandwich. When we told the server all she said was "okay thanks ill let the chef know." I will not be back. Very disappointing the use to be good.

Food was great but service was slow. The hostess helped us more than our server. I am not sure if they were short staffed or the server was new.

From start to finish this meal was fantastic. Service was impeccable, attentive and very polite but not intrusive. It was a great Valentines Day pick and we will be back again soon. This is likely our new favorite restaurant in the Lehigh Valley.

Drinks were perfect. Salads were interesting and not overly busy but with generous dressing which I prefer. Oysters was a great appetizer and left Caitlin wanting more. Complimentary sorbet to cleanse the palate was a classy touch. I had some of the finest venison I have ever had and I was impressed the waitress suggested medium rare before I could ask. That level of knowledge for game meat impressed me. Further inquiry discovered that elk is a regular menu item (best meat on earth in my mind) which we will return for soon. Caitlin’s lobster and steak was fantastic. Lobster was cooked maybe 1-2 minutes too long.

We took dessert to go, the meals were a perfect size and cocktails so well done it was nice to be completely satisfied but not stuffed. I can honestly say this was the best meal I’ve had in a long time.

Five stars was easily earned. Can’t wait to go back.

Excellent food, great service. Last minute had us sitting across from the cash register station, which wasn’t the most romantic location for Valentine’s Day. Very good experience overall.

Food was excellent, came out hot. Service was also excellent. Our water glasses were refilled promptly. The only thing that I’ll say was not perfect, was that the lobster tail was not served with butter in a warmer. However, I’ll let that slide as this seems to be the case with most restaurants these days. The melted butter was hot when it came out of the kitchen. Looking forward to going back.

Madeline's was great, as usual. We took our friend there for her birthday and she loved it. I had the salmon, which was AWESOME. My sister had the scallops and shrimp on pasta that she LOVED and the birthday girl had the crab cakes. She couldn't rave enough!

Food was delicious and plentiful. Delicious homemade biscuits. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We will be back at the end of February. COVID issues were handled well. Tables spaced far apart and the silverware was wrapped in plastic

Henrys salt of the sea. Outstanding seafood, need reservations though.

Madelines has awesome French onion soup. Very little seafood to chose from.

Food was not as good as our party last Christmas. Oyster taste was really bad. Dinner seafood puff had no taste except for the sauce. Very bland!

The food and service were good. Our party of 4 were seated in between 2 tables that had children at them. It was quite loud and annoying at times. The parents didn’t seem overly concerned about the disturbance.

The food was fine. The service was good. They definitely add some extra complimentary surprises like sorbet between courses and a chocolate coin with the check. I noticed that they even had nice soap and pretty hand towels in the bathroom. Unfortunately I had a bad reaction to the scallops.

I ordered the 6oz Filet Mignon, medium rare. It was cooked perfectly and was very tender except for a thin vein of gristle. Definitely worth the expense! My wife had the seafood strudel. She said it tasted fine, although the pastry didn't seem right based on her Austrian/German heritage. We think that Madeline's is one of the best restaurants in the Lehigh Valley!
