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.

I've gone to dinner at Madison for 5 years now- it's great, though I think the quality of food is not consistent for the price ($20-35 entrees.) Ambiance and service are usually great. Great cocktail list. Nice to have the bar next door for before or after dinner drinks and/or as a meeting place. They have great industry night deals ($20 pre-fixe on Mondays). I still very much like coming here.

Very disappointing experience. Heard great things about the brunch buffet so used an Open Table Reward for brunch. We were seated in Dining Room, buffet is in bar. We could not get to the bar, a large stroller was blocking the narrow entrance from the dining room to the bar and people waiting for tables at the restaurant entrance with strollers were blocking even more. Instead, w e ordered Eggs Benedict (very over cooked although the crab cake it was served on was great). Another person had an overcooked omelette. Additionally, it was so loud due two two very large tables of about 20 people that you could not have a conversation. The strollers in addition to blocking the entrance/exit were probably a fire hazard. I wish I hadn't wasted my Open Table reward on this restaurant as there are so many great brunch restaurants in Hoboken.

There was a DJ in the dining area playing loud music for Sunday brunch. While the food was good, I couldn’t hold a conversation. Too loud!

Upon entering, I was immediately punched in the face by an array of scents that shocked, pleased, and bewildered me. Did I just walk into a bar/restaurant, or a perfume shop specializing in gourmet-food smells from every corner of our planet? Disoriented and aroused, I greeted my date. A hostess touched both of our shoulders, and for a moment I thought it was Aphrodite herself. A connection full of love flowed between our three bodies as I walked to the throne I would spend the next hour in. I was handed a menu that contained delicacies that stretched from the eastern coast of Thailand, all the way to the western tip of South Africa. At this point, my senses were so pleased and overwhelmed, I fell into an ecstatic state. Where had I been the past thirty minutes of my life? I believe that I must have blacked out for a portion of this experience. Our waitress came over and brought me back to reality, letting me know that I needed to nourish my body, only my best interest on her mind. Confused slightly intimidated, I ordered the Chicken Parm. I waited the next twenty minutes in a pool of laughs and temptation, Madison’s setting the scene for bad decisions to be made. Upon receiving my meal, I had to look away for a moment. The beauty of the preparation was enough to make a grown man blush. My first bite left me clutching the table, my eyes rolled back in my head, and my knees locked out. Every bite brought me closer and closer to climax. Would my stomach fill before my pants? It didn’t matter, I was hooked. The attentiveness of our waitress kept sweet white wine from the finest wineries of France flowing down my throat throughout this journey. I’m about to hit the character max so I’ll cut it off here. 4.4/5 would return.

The risotto says it can be made vegetarian - but the cost is the same without scallops?
Overall the prices make no sense, there’s no price ratio between items, like perceived value was never considered. This makes me question the ingredients.
The veggie burger is dry and I paid $2 extra for cheese I couldn’t taste. I also had to send it back because the first time it was made with sauce I asked to have on the side.
Our waitress never asked how our food was.
The drinks are weak for $12.
I’ve gone to the Madison many times over the past 10 years and while the food has never been exceptional and this was by far below standard.

Few places can offer an eclectic, exciting menu and execute each meal as though it were their signature dish. The Madison truly has something for everyone—and it's all good. That's why it's been Hoboken's go-to venue for so many years.

I would highly recommend the Madison to friends and family. As always, food is consistently fresh and delicious. Great selection for appetizers, and small bites. The entrée menu and specials are also great. I had the Lobster Risotto and it was one of the best I've had. The bartenders are on with the drinks. The waitress and staff are very friendly and warm. The Madison is a great place to have an enjoyable relaxing delicious meal. The owner is also very friendly.
