I give this an “outstanding” for food because the short rib hash with egg is outstanding. We were given a perfect table by the window and the service was great.

The food was amazing...well, except for the creme brûlée; it was not creamy, it tasted a little over cooked. But everything else was fantastic!

Basic bistro and brasserie type offerings. Loud and tight quarters. Mostly a business-casual type experience for quick in and out reasonably priced fare. Always noisy and frenetic.

Great lunch spot! Food was reasonably quick, and service was outstanding! Our waitress was so friendly and sweet. She helped pick out cocktails to our likings from their new winter menu which the bartender made amazingly. I had the lamb sandwich and truffle fries, glad I did

Went for a business lunch. Nothing special about this place. Pretty standard fare. Food was good enough but don't think I will be rushing back. Pretty average place, have already forgotten about it.

Husband ordered Kale Caesar Salad with tuna. Tuna was BAD as in too old to be served to anyone. He took one bite and sent it back. Asked for shrimp instead of tuna. Shrimp was fine, kale was mushy and he didn't eat the kale, which he normally loves. I had the Grilled Chicken Paillard. The chicken was pounded as thin as paper and was about as tasty. Enough said.

I have been wanting to go to the restaurant for a while. I wasn't disappointed, both chicken dishes were great, shrimp cocktail was fresh.
I would go back again.

My midtown go-to for lunch (business or otherwise). The lamb sandwich is a must, but that's not to take away from the other options. It's not the quietest spot, but you can still easily hold a conversation.

I met a friend for dinner. Floor-to ceiling windows were all open to the street, so quite a bit of rush-hour street noise came in. In addition, the restaurant itself was quite noisy and I had been looking for something a bit quieter. Otherwise, however, the food was quite tasty and the cocktail delicious. Service was fine. I would definitely go again and sample other items on the menu, although the choices were somewhat limited.

Madison and Vine was a bit of a disappointment. The service was slow. One member of our party ordered a Medium Rare NY Strip Steak. It was presented about 25 minutes later cooked Medium Well. The cocktails promised a lot on the menu, but were lacking in flavor or a unique signature. The chicken and vegetables were prepared well and the desserts were outstanding.
A couple occupied a table adjacent to us for cocktails only. They pushed their place settings to the side. When they departed, the server reset the table using the same place setting. Perhaps that is OK with the NYC Health Department. It would be a significant violation with our Fairfax County, Virginia HD.

We choose to eat at Madison and Vine without knowing much about it. The food and service were both outstanding. Especially loved the tuna tartare, veal meatballs, and braised short rib. We'd definitely eat here again!

A very nice brunch with family. We werew disappointed that they did not have any iced tea on this summer day. Also, I had the cobb salad. When I asked if there was any other dressing besides the balsalmic vinegrette, I was told they had no other dressing for the salad. Otherwise, a very good meal.

We have stayed at the Library hotel a few times and each time we ate at Mad and Vine. From the hostess to the servers, bartenders etc.,we encountered smiling faces and excellent service.We liked it so much the last time we brought our son for the lunch meal as we were all in the city but just for the day. Our son loved his food and we did also. Ww highly recommend this spot for a meal-whether its at lunch or dinner time

We arrived late for a 2pm reservation but luckily they had capacity. Hostess was very accommodating and asked for seating preferences. Ambiance is nice and mellow at that time of day.

Food was tasty. However, I would not expect a large vein in a $22 steak sandwich. That was not pleasant.

Service was slow. It took 30+ minutes for a sandwich. (It was late afternoon and many tables were available.) We had to flag down the hostess when ready to leave after waiting 10 minutes. Other staff were friendly and helpful.

The check was wrong - initially had three main courses for two people. They were apologetic and quickly corrected the issue.

Overall, it was an okay experience due to ambiance, location, staff friendliness and tasty food (except for that vein surprise).

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Though not very large, the restaurant was busy during our meal. Busy in a good way. Madison and Vine, appears to be a local neighbor restaurant where folks come for a drink or casual dinner after work. The food was very good and my wife said the fries were to die for! We'd definitely would come back!

I've eaten here three times, and the last two were not a good experience. The waiter was annoyed that I asked him to write down my meal request as I have several food allergies. I gave him my order before my colleague joined as I didn't want to come across as high maintenance. When the food arrived, it was all wrong. I was embarrassed in front of my colleague and the waiter came back to confirm two additional times after the error. It was also incredibly loud - terrible acoustics. The vegetables were not even fresh -- I'm pretty sure they were frozen. Not a place I will eat at again.
