The Madison Bar and Grill is filled with an ambiance and class that is usually reserved for Manhattan eateries. The dining room is cleverly decorated in a 1940s style reminiscent of a chic roadside inn. The décor works an evocative, magical mood, with bare wood floors, wainscoted walls, soft lighting and subtle touches from a bygone era.

Patrons can also enjoy The Madison’s eclectic American Cuisine at the bar or outdoors in an al fresco cafe that wraps around the street corner.

Be sure not to miss The Madison’s Weekly Events, including the Sunday Jazz Brunch, First Seating, Tuesday Night Martini Madness, Thursday Taco Night and Endless Happy Hour. The restaurant also offers Private Parties and Off-Premises Catering.

The Madison Bar and Grill is a great place for families, professionals, romantic dinners or anyone who likes to unwind and enjoy great food, drinks and service in a sophisticated, comfortable eatery.

The food was to point, Madison has good vegetarian options and they are able to tailor it according to your taste. Over all I would definitelu go back here, the bar area is very lively and fun to hangout and catch up.

The avocado toast for $14 was embarrassing. VERY light on the actual avocado. Wouldn’t recommend it and shocked someone allowed it to be served.

Weekend visit with daughter and son-in-law who just moved to Weehawken. Last minute lunch reservation was easy on Open Table. Variety of menu choices and good service—overall experience and food was good except too much (saturated!) salad dressing on house salad -returned salad and waiter removed from bill.

Fun Saturday night atmosphere with a hopping bar and restaurant! We made reservations so no wait. Adorable outdoor seating with heat lamps or indoor too. Delicious lobster bisque, fish tacos & lump crabmeat sliders. Big selection of craft beers & seasonal delicious cocktails! Great service. It’s a Go To in Hoboken! Brunch is amazing too!

Made reservations through open table for outside dining specifically. We got there on time for the rearvation and were told there was no available outdoor seating - this was after a walk up party with out a reservation was seated outside before us. We were offered a table right on the street in the sun and we took it because we wanted to. E outside. Our order did not come out correctly either ordered sweet potato fries and got regular friea. No calamari and ordered omelette with sausage and got tomato instead. Very disappointing. Didn’t see the server for 30 minutes. Looked short staffed so they were doing their best. Was disappointing.

We were very disappointed with our meal at Madison. I don’t know if the wait staff was inexperienced or if they were busy, but they were not very attentive. The tables were sticky and weren’t particularly clean when we sat down. The food was mediocre at best and prices were high for the quality.

Food and drinks were great. Servers seemed very new and didn’t know what was available from the beer list. We had burgers that were great, as were the fries. Menus seemed inconsistent between the online menu and the QR code. Outdoor space is very open and welcoming. There was even an adorable puppy on the patio while we were there! We’ll be back!

Hardwood floors and large group tables make this a boisterous meal, so not a great place for intimate conversation. Cocktails were very tasty, but seemed a little light on alcohol, so seemed less of a value for the price. Also while many servers visited the table, it was still hard to find someone to take our order or get our check. I loved my veggie spaghetti squash, and my husband liked but didn’t love his risotto.

Food was good but service was AWFUL! We waited over 40 minutes for the drinks we ordered and almost an hour for the waitress to take our food order. The waitress was basically ignoring us. In total we were sitting at our table for over 2 hours…

Service was very poor. If they make more outdoor seating for guests, they should have more waiters/waitresses to work.
