The food was sooooo delicious! Especially that eggplant appetizer. The ambiance is nice, and staff friendly. I will return.

The space is small & comfortable.

Pricing on the wine per glass is steep. Portion sizes are generous.

Attention by the servers is very good and unobtrusive

Table was ready upon arrival. It was a warm evening and they kept all of the doors open so there was no AC. The tables are placed very close together so it is difficult to have a conversation. The service was excellent and they took our order quickly and the wait was not long. We both ordered the chicken with an arugula salad and it was well presented. We shared shrimp cocktail and the shrimp were a big size and they serve 5 in the appetizer portion. We each had a glass of wine and we spent 2 hours together. If you are using grand central station, it is a perfect meeting spot.

I want to preface this by saying that while I did not give this restaurant five stars and would likely not choose to go back here again, I would tell others to give it a try. Some of the food was truly outstanding and service is excellent when there aren't many people in the restaurant but it seems that they aren't equipped to handle more than 10 active tables at a time so as soon as that happens, the food isn't piping hot, you might not get salt/pepper until you're essentially done and nobody comes over to see if you need anything while you're eating (I'm still wondering what that sherry vinaigrette tastes like). That being said, if you're interested in reading on about specifics, here they are.
The specialty drinks - Tasty but very weak. For $16, my friend and I want more than one shot in a rocks glass that has tons of ice in it. We had two drinks before moving to our table.
The appetizer - Outstanding - Veal meatballs. I actually preferred the grilled sourdough the next day. I'm not sure why but when it first came out it had a weird taste.
The Entree - Chicken Paillard. Super thin chicken breast that was very dry. I don't know if this is due to it sitting before it was brought to the table or if it was due to little to no cheese or the absence of the dressing but I am sure this is an anomaly. It was seared as it should be but perhaps it just sat too long and dried out (that gets back to the service I referenced above).

My friend had the cavatappi (I had a taste) and it was great. The side of spinach was terrific as well.

Since I had decided to take the appetizer with me after having a few bites of it in order to have room for my main course (which I disliked), I did opt to order dessert and it was super yummy.

In closing, I'm not sure I'd go back here again, but I would not discourage others from giving it a try. There is no doubting the quality of the food, but without stepping up the investment in employees and service that is what separates this place.

Our waiter was fantastic! Very personable and helpful! I don’t remember his name, but he deserves a pat on the back!

I eat out a lot. At many different calibers of Resteraunt. Madison and Vine is definitely one to have on your list!

Been here numerous times mainly at the weekend and it has been fantastic but my first time there for lunch midweek and I was very disappointed. Server was rushing us even though it was a 1pm booking so not sure what he wanted us off the table for. He was not interested n merely going through the motions. The food was average which hasn’t been the case before. Not rushing back.

lovely place with open air feel, when the weather is nice. We split a burger and a cobb salad with bacon, and a warm spinach dip with chips. All in all very nice but pricey, but then again so is all of manhattan. No one rushed us, very friendly ambiance. go if you haven't already.

My companion and I both thought the food was very good and the service was attentive without being intrusive. We appreciated not being rushed. We agreed we would definitely go back when the opportunity presents itself. One "criticism" might be its limited menu.

Food was very good, both the tuna and the salmon entrees as well as the crab cake appetizer. Well prepared as ordered with good sides and very nicely presented. The service was also very good, attentive but not intrusive. The place is a bit on the loud side but, as it's also a bar, that's to be expected.
