Madera offers a beautiful dining room and patio, stellar service and delicious food. This is our second stay at this pretty property and all the staff greeted us by name. Darling Audrey at the front hostess stand and awesome server Nancy remembered us immediately. Peter, Kevin and Eric are all great too. Breakfast and lunch daily were delicious- you can’t go wrong. I would recommend sitting on the pretty patio. We only had dinner once during our stay - the steak and the sea bass were excellent.
Such a lovely spot!

While the ambiance was perfectly nice, and the service was courteous, the food (breakfast) was underwhelming and not what I expect from a place of this nature. I’d booked this to kick off the birthday of my wife and frankly it wasn’t worth the trip and set things off at a mediocre note. Would recommend they spend some more energies on this meal.

Belated birthday luncheon for 3 people in our group of four. My husband and I both had a salad with salmon. The salmon was excellent, however, the greens were nothing special with little dressing, basically Romain of some sort. It was difficult to cut the greens because the salad was served in a deep bowl with straight sides.... the price was outrageous. All four of us ordered coffee and they served each of us with an individual pot (approx. pint size) of coffee and priced accordingly. We were also surprised to see a 4% living wage added on the bill. We have patronized this restaurant several times in the past, however, my husband and I decided this would be our last visit to this restaurant.

The food, ambience and view was perfect for a small celebration. The service was top notch. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area.

We tried the cauliflower, the Petaluma Half Chicken and the King Salmon. Everything was great but the Cauliflower dish was unique and had a really good balance of crunch, freshness and flavour. Would definitely come back, especially for drinks at sunset.

Service was attentive and professional. Dinner menu is very limited and the food is quite salty, greasy, and pricey. It’s a good place to go for special occasions due to its ambiance, but I would forewarn my guests that there are not many food choices. I am surprised that the restaurant had a Michelin one star with that average (at most) food quality.

The food quality was well below expectation. Canned jalapeño on the sandwiches, soggy and overly sweet wings, brown slimy lettuce in the salad. Very disappointing.

Our group very much enjoyed their breakfast on Wednesday morning, May 5, 2021. Our waiter, Michael, was outstanding! It was a business meeting, so the noise level was perfect. Please tell Michael this is from the lady that ordered "tea," but he thought I said "cheese!" We were all laughing when we realized the mix-up!

This is our first time back to Madera since COVID started and we went to celebrate a birthday. There were fewer tables and more spread out than before and they were very good at keeping everything cleaned and sanitized, so that made us feel more comfortable on our first experience back to the restaurant.
The food: the menu is a lot more casual (i.e. salad bowls and burgers) than they used to have prior to COVID. Waiters were very nice and pleasant, but service was slow. We were told that the menu is smaller because they are just trying to restart the restaurant now that they re-opened and that staff is all new. Food was good but I guess we got spoiled with the food and service that it used to have before. BTW, there was no sommelier either.
We hope things improve at the restaurant as things get better.

We had a wonderful time mostly due to the great service and gorgeous setting. The food was very good although the menu was greatly and understandably changed from what we remembered from past excellent dinners. It was our first real night out in more than a year, much needed and much enjoyed.
