    The food and service was, as usual, just excellent. It is really about the only local restaurant that has the old school "white table cloth" feel. Having said that, the decor is a little dated, and gives it a "stuffy" sort of ambiance. However, for a very special occasion, I think they are the best in the County.

    Food tasty but a bit too processed. More texture and seasoning would be welcomed. VERY interesting wine list and a knowledgeable sommelier. Good service and not overly attentive.

    Charming ambience and friendly service. I loved my duck entree. My husband enjoyed the wagu steak. It was melt in the mouth! I was a little disappointed by my root beer floating island for dessert. There was only a tiny amount of meringue with the ice cream. Would definitely go again though.

    What a beautiful place with food and service to match. The ambiance is superb - no dark noisy hardscape place. Gorgeous inn. Can choose from a prix fixe or a la carte. Waiters are very helpful. So many good things to choose. The onion veloute was outstanding. Hard to decide on first course. Great bread and the duck was delicious. Very elegant and cozy Great for a special occasion.

    This is an accomplished and beautiful restaurant. The hotel and public rooms are lovely and the service is very good. That being said, I don't think it rises to the level of a Michelin one star. Everything was excellent but there were no amuse bouches, no palette cleansers, no pre or post desserts. None of the touches that you expect in a starred place.

    I wish I could give this place more stars. 10 stars! Such a beautiful place. I came here for dinner and had the course meal. Every single thing on the menu that came out was perfect. I’ve eaten food all over the place. (Big foodie) and I can honestly say this place highly exceeded my expectations. The staff was so nice and attentive. I must have said thank you 20+ times throughout the evening. It was well worth the experience. Thank you Madrona Manor for having a slice of heaven on earth for us to enjoy.

    Valentine’s Day fixed price menu at $110 per person. Given the ratings the restaurant has had I figured it would be awesome. The service was very good and although the waiter explained there were choices in each course I missed the part about the up charge. Caviar was +$45. It was very good but not $45 good. The alternate of smoked egg was even better at the fixed price rate. Then I went with the truffle risotto +$25 - not good. Couldn’t taste the truffles and the risotto was overdone. The Beat salad was ok but admittedly I’m not a bears guy. Main was an American wagu beef. It had to be broiled because it had a greasy taste and texture that was not very good. I went with the wine pairing +$55. Average size pours and not many interesting wines. Although the service and atmosphere were great it certainly didn’t put so the average food.

    We really enjoyed our evening with old friends at the Manor. It was quiet enough that we could actually have a conversation, which is all too rare these day in restaurants! We went on a Wednesday night to enjoy their "locals" fried chicken dinner and it did NOT disappoint!! The biscuits were out of this world, as was the perfectly crispy chicken. The Manor is lovely and a pleasure in which to be. The only slight critique is that the service was lacking in warmth, but this is the first time we've ever felt that way, so perhaps our server was simply having a bad day. Overall, this is a lovely place for dinner!

    We were quite underwhelmed by Madrona. The place is very stuffy — at 50 I brought the average age down significantly. Service was lackluster — took a while to be seated since the hostess was missing, for example, and water service was hit or miss. And the food was fine but not great — and unlike most restaurants of this caliber, there were no “extras” between or before courses. Final straw was that they had “forgotten” to order cheese and so couldn’t do a cheese plate despite having it on the menu. And after an appetizer, entree, and sharing a dessert I was still hungry. Sommelier was good though, as was the quite-good California Tempranillo he recommended.

    My wife and I enjoyed Madrona Manor's Dickens Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day since our sons were spending this Christmas with the in-laws and we were on our own. We were frankly looking for a little Christmas cheer since our family was elsewhere. The menu was carefully thought out and the choices were excellent. The food was delicious and delivered hot, and the service was great. The wine pairings were also excellent, featuring wines from all over the world that paired perfectly with each course. We were particularly impressed that Madrona Manor's skilled chef was able to suggest and deliver a few ideal substitutes which were compatible with my wife's special diet which were served with a smile. That was very much appreciated! But best of all were the Dickens Singers quartet, dressed in nineteenth century period costumes, who sang Christmas carols, winter songs, and even invited patrons to sing along. All in all, it was a perfect, unhurried, delightful Christmas dinner which cheered our spirits and sent us home with smiles, happily fed! Well done, Madrona Manor team!

    I think it's best to enjoy MM during regular times. Coming for a holiday must be incredibly difficult for staff, from kitchen to servers. The Dickens carolers added so much to the dinner. One of the wines offered was mediocre at best, but when we mentioned it the waiter returned with an outstanding Barolo. The AV cabernet would be good - in 5 years. However, it was served way too soon. After complaining about the pinot, I didn't want to mention the cab. Over the years I've enjoyed MM many times, both for lunches and dinners. I'll definitely return but most likely for a non-special event.

    They need to figure out their bubbly water game. 3rd year in a row of Dicken’s dinners that they have repeatedly tried to pour still water into our bubbly water glasses. Everything else was great, but we can to constantly run interference when the water person approached the table.

    We have been to Madrona manor many times before and could always depend on them for spectacular food and service. This last time we went the food was amazing but service was a huge let down. We were greeted by our waiter 25 minutes after being seated. Cocktail and drink menu wasn’t given when asked on 3 separate occasions. Wine for the wine paring was given 10-15 minutes after each course. Timing of the courses was sporadic. Food wasn’t described when served. Overall it was quite heartbreaking to see such a dramatic difference in service in what use to be such a dependable restaurant. We emailed the restaurant at the end of the evening and haven’t received a response from them.

    We will absolutely recommend Madrona Manor to friends. The service was impeccable, as our table was hosted by five different staff. The Prix Fix menu was extremely creative and the wine pairings not only complemented the dishes but introduced us to varietals and regions with which we were not very familiar. The Sommelier had some interesting things to say about his selections, and the variety and creativity involved in the course preparation made the evening truly unique. The evening was quite expensive but worth the experience.

    The place was awesome. Beautiful and intimate. My only gripe is I feel like I was talked out of ordering the “fried chicken” that is offered on Wednesday nights. Granted they have a Michelin Star so you go there for more than just fried chicken. Butttttt it seemed like it was frowned upon. None the less the food was exquisite.
