About The Madison Bar and Grill

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.

We got to the restaurant for dinner no even one person was there so we got seat down anyway thinking that was because of the time 10pm but it’s Saturday night anyway 2 minutes later came our waitress with the menus gave us sometime to decided for drinks and then place the main order we ordered just 3 burgers and one. Of my friend soup and salad it took them 35 minutes to prepare our order to be honest burgers were good, after the meal was served to get to our waitress was a mission I had to got up 4 times from our table to try to reach her very disappointed so we order anyway desserts which there were absolutely horrible créeme brûlée it wasn’t caramelizad on the top so I had to ask if they can do it i wondering why I have to ask them to make it in the right way , the chocolate volcano with ice cream it was also terrible the volcano cake it was a little warm when it supposed to be hot to make a nice complement with the ice cream . By the way the restaurant was so cold the heater it wasn’t working absolutely a real bad experience but got to the conclusion that the restaurant was so empty because of the bad service and quality of the food . We won’t come back again .

Food is always good. We didn’t realize when we made the reservation that the back dining room was reserved for an event and weren’t expecting to sit in the bar area but it was fine. One of our food orders was prepared wrong but the service and drinks were both good.

The place is amazing and so is the food. The bar and the restaurant are separated which is excellent, so it’s not that noisy. I have a group of vegetarians and they have a decent amount of vegetarian options. Love it, will be going there again.

Food was excellent from beginning to end for all. Service was pleasant but dreadfully slow for what was not a very busy DR. 30 minutes before we had our opening cocktails. Fortunately, we were not in a hurry. Would absolutely go back.

The food we ordered was all very delicious. The only mix-up was that they brought two incorrect dishes out to us the first time (we were a party of 4), which had to be corrected after the fact. The restaurant wasn't very crowded, so it's hard to imagine why there was a mix up for two people in our party, but once all the orders came out correctly, it was very good!

Good food and service. The short ribs and the short rib ravioli were both very good. The ceasar cardini salad with kale was not the traditional ceasar salad but very good.

Our party of 5 sat outside on the patio. the weather was glorious but the seating was a little cramped. Four of us ordered salads which were excellent. I had lamb sliders which I ordered medium rare. they were like little hockey pucks. Hated them. Even worse, the menu said they came with cumin chick peas. there were about 6 chick peas, no hint of cumin, but cooked into hard little pellets that were more like nuts than chick peas. We had drinks, coffee and a few desserts which were fine. Excellent Server.

I love this restaurant and the outdoor seating, but the service was extremely slow and impersonal. Perhaps the waiters were in training and could only do one task at a time but with no oversight and with no personality. Good food though.

It was a very cute place with some good food, but pretty loud. One of our guests was running late, and we told the waitress about 2-3 times before he showed up. Once he got there, it was as if she just forgot about our table and we waited a good 15 -20 minutes before she came back. The food was good however, and we enjoyed our time there for the most part.

Bar side can be very loud depending on the day and time, but the other more formal side is quieter. The service is very pleasant. I left my cell phone at the table and upon return to hopefully find it, the waitress had it in the back for me. I will say that the wine is reasonable, but the cocktails are very over priced for the size and amount of liquor in the drinks. As in most places, the glasses are filled with mostly ice.

Unplanned family cluster of 6 coming from local area for a 1:00 pm lunch. Our fourth visit. Few other diners so service was quick and friendly as usual. Nice selection of beers and drinks were good with a generous pour. Spicy shrimp, calamari, eggs benedict, cheeseburgers, chicken noodle soup and salads. No complaints from what is usually a pretty picky group. Broad selection of choices. Well prepared pub food with appealing presentation.

Easter Brunch at The Madison was excellent. Was originally concerned when they called and told me Easter would be brunch only-no ordering off the menu. The buffet food was not buffet food-if that makes sense. Filet Mignon and lamb were both great but the discussion at our table was about the sliced pork loin entrée and the crab cakes benedict. The service was on point too! Our waitress was very friendly & accommodating and checked on us often to see if we needed anything. We live 3 hours away and were visiting family that recently moved to Hoboken. We look forward to dining there again the next time we visit.

We sat in the dining area and i was taken off guard. I thought i was going to Madison bar and grill to eat bar food in a fun bar setting, but the dinning area was the complete opposite. This restaurant offers both scenes, nice date night quiet and fun bar loud side. Choose wisely :)

I've been coming to the Madison for years and always thought it to be a reliable and great Hoboken option. However, my experience for dinner this past Sunday was fair from great. Our waitress was not friendly or welcoming during the entire meal. She would leave us untended for long periods where we would have to request help from other staff to get her attention. Two steak meals which were asked to be done medium came out extremely rare (blood dripping) and we were given attitude when sending back to the kitchen. We came with a larger group to celebrate a family birthday and I really wish it had been a more positive experience.

This used to be my favorite brunch spot. Still a good place to go in Hoboken but the buffet has really declined
