Madera Lounge and Madera Restaurant at the Rosewood Sandhill have both managed to survive the pandemic and do it in style. The lounge is still a nice place for drinks on a Thursday to Saturday night. The food is still exceptional and the wine list and cocktails are still outstanding. The only thing that has changed is the crowds....they are gone for now, but sure to return soon.

Not good at all. The waitress was rude, not professional to the point we left early. Not even celebrated our birthday.
Such a bad experience for my friends and I.

Party of 2, Bar reservation, patio. Each had a burger with fries ($34), and cocktails ($23 for named) . Burgers were good, loaded with fried egg and avocado. Fries just okay, soggy not crisp like they used to be. No more pickled vegetables. Seems like less choices/variety on the Bar menu and definitely more expensive. Service by Teresa was excellent as was the affogato dessert, not on the menu. Patio was nice, good spacing, comfortable, overhead electric heaters on/warm. Bang for the buck has gone down since my more frequent visits up to early this year.

The experience was a blast: especially the communication with everyone working there was a pleasure! Especially a special thank you to Emma for the organization of the most thoughtful, stunning and unforgettable birthday I could ever give to of our parents during these difficult times! I love bringing our friends, because this restaurant not only offers the most breathtaking views, delicious food and such a vividly fantastic atmosphere, but also a hardworking and fantastic team working there!

Madera Lounge and Madera Restaurant are, quite simply, the finest places to have a drink or an outstanding dinner on the Peninsula. Even in the pandemic, the porch in the lounge and restaurant offer excellent food, world class mixed drinks, an unmatched wine list and terrific service. I was just there last night, and for a minute, forgot we were in the middle of a pandemic. The Rosewood Sandhill has adapted to these unfortunate circumstances with its usual flair and style. I can't rave about this place enough. A breath of fresh air, in our smoky times.

If you dine here they have a hard close and will kick you out. They push you to order more before you have time to finish. The food is good, but you don’t have time to enjoy it.

Hello Anonymous, We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the food at Madera Bar. I am sorry to hear that the two hours that we allocated to your table on this occasion were not enough, which must have negatively impacted your entire experience. We aim to be flexible with turn times, however the last call will be made just before 9 pm, with a closing time of 9:30 pm. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Warmest, Oreste

Not clear from Opentable that we were seated in the bar, and therefore not able to order dinner. Waitress was very nice and happy to sneak us menus. Overall would not go back — WAY too much of a scene. Too many trophy wives.

The quietest I've seen the bar (due to COVID). But really nice and quiet, there's almost a 1x1 ratio of service staff to tables. Really solid social distancing, enforced by required reservations (they plan out seating arrangements in advance.)

The Poolside Bar, contrary to what was shown on OpenTable, was not open for business at the hour of my reservation. Servers at the Rosewood Hotel bar were not very helpful. Concierge at the Madera Restaurant, in contrast, was wonderful. My friends and I ended up getting a table at Madera. It was not the evening we had planned. But Madera enabled great drinks and menu selections, though well above what we had budgeted.

The food was outstanding but as others have noted, the wait staff is inattentive. I literally had to wave my hand 2-3 times to get them to bring the check, turn down the music and then pick up the check. However it's lovely and quiet by the pool so you feel like you're on vacation even if you're not.

The service is spotty at best. This is the second time I have eaten at this location and the first time the service was very nice, efficient and on target. The second time was a disaster. We could never find our waitress; language skills in English were moderate and when I asked to take 1/2 of my hamburger home with me at the end of the meal, she mentioned something about running up to the restaurant to pick it up. It turns out, she had tossed out my rare 1/2 burger for a whole new burger that was grossly overcooked. I did not discover this until later in the afternoon when I decided to finish my other half hamburger. I threw the full order out as it was so overdone.

I think we must have hit them on a bad day. The waiter didn't get anything right in our order (I'm not joking ... nothing) and told us repeatedly how he usually works somewhere else. Not the ambience I was looking for.

The atmosphere is very serene and the service was very very good, however the salad I ordered (both times when I dined at this venue) was SO average and at $20 for a half a head of bib lettuce and four small prawns it was a total rip off.
