One of our favorite spots. We always try to hit the happy hour and combine it with a great dinner. This time we had the tuna taco's and found them to be outstanding. Our service was fast, friendly and efficient. Our water glasses were always full. We are finding this to be our go to place when we want a quality meal that is a good value.

My husband sent his short rib back. It was flavorful but not very tender. It felt more like snake.

Three of us went to the Madison for a NYE dinner. We ordered two cocktails each, about $13/drink--the drinks were amazing! The Oaxacan Old Fashioned and Smoked Show were both great drinks if you're a mezcal fan. I ordered the oysters and crab cakes which were decent. The chicken sandwich was nothing out of the ordinary. I would definitely come back for a few rounds of drinks (not sure if they have a happy hour) and would definitely try their brunch!

We were seated right away as we had a reservation. The ambiance of the restaurant is unique and nice, but not stuffy. Our server Georgia was outstanding and very conscientious. She always made sure we had what we needed. There was another man bussing tables who was very aware and on top of things. It was good to see staff at their best on a holiday night. All the food we ate was delicious. I’d recommend the burrata appetizer. The only reason I didn’t give this place five stars is because I feel the menu could be a little more interesting with more vegetarian options.

Great for a birthday party for 5. Lively with attentive service. Decor is glittery and festive. Lots of small plates to share. Traditional and non-traditional "bar" food. Accommodating for those with allergies. Complimentary dessert to share with the birthday honoree! Give it a try...

The Madison Bar & Kitchen is the perfect place to catch up with friends or go on a date. The noise level is always low - even when it's full - making it easy to have a conversation. Their happy hour is absolutely amazing and is, by far, the best in the area.

We ended up ordering only drinks and appetizers and stayed for almost an hour and half after we had paid the check. Not only did we not feel pressured to leave from the staff, but they kept filling up our waters and taking care of us. Wonderful service.

Service was extremely slow, and they were not busy. Food was just bad (brunch). Been here for dinner before and enjoyed it. Chilaquilas was like a bowl of soup. Just a soggy mess. Chicken and waffles were dry and hard to enjoy. More breading on the chicken than actual meat. Waffles were gross. Aperol Spritz was very heavy on the aperol making it way too sweet. Won’t be returning.

Great food and drinks - everyone loved what they got! The ahi tuna tacos were quite small so don’t get those as your main without another side. Awesome wine selections! I was tempted to buy a whole bottle of Coyam, but didn’t have the budget - someone else NEEDS to try Coyam it’s so delicious.

I live in Columbus, but The Madison Bar and Kitchen is one of my favorite brunch spots. When I know I’ll be in Chicago, I make a reservation. The crab cake and fried mozzarella is my absolute favorite!
