It was our 39 th anniversary and we had never been to Madison’s so checked the menu and thought we would give it a try. The service was absolutely awesome the food was exceptional and we enjoyed ourselves very much would recommend this restaurant.
Great place with walking distance from our downtown hotel
The lobster tail could have fresher. The steak was burned. Server was very frendly and courteous but it almost took one hour for our food to be brought at our table. I would also suggest to have air freshner as the restaurant has a bit of a smell.
La seule chose est que c'est un peu dispendieux. Ça coûte 22$ pour une soupe et une sandwich.
Overall very tasty. Would have preferred that arctic char not be breaded. Food was a little more salty than necessary. Home salad dressing was tasty, a touch too sweet. Meat was tender, at the right doneness. It was nice to be offered a taster of 2 wines in order to select the right one for the meal.
Service was excelllent but the food was not. I got the crab mac n cheese and the pasta tasted like fish and they give you the smallest portion of crab
I ordered a cheeseburger with fries. I had the butternut squash soup to start. The soup came right away and was delicious. My friend also ordered the cheeseburger with extra cheese and bacon. Her side was mashed. The burgers took at least 20 minutes, mine was very dry and hers was missing the bacon and extra cheese. They also served fries instead of mashed. Took hers away and brought it back still without the extra cheese. We gave up.
Dino was great and the food also. The noise level was a little too loud. But all in all a good time.
The staff are very friendly and professional. The food was great.
The food and service was prompt, the person who seated us needs a little more personality she is the front person of Madison..also did not know where the NAC was located when asked..
I booked a party of 16... most were happy with there food. I was unhappy because I ordered the New York dip sandwich at $18 instead of fries I asked for a salad. I was told it was $3 more which was a surprise , but ok. The salad they gave me was a bowl of lettuce with one cherry tomatoe cut in half. That isnt a salad nor did it warrant a surcharge of $3. When I told the waiter I wasn't that happy about the salad a d that it only had one cherry tomatoe cut in half.. he said that our chef salad. I didnt eat the salad, but paid for it. I was very disappointed. It's not likely I'll book anymore work lunches at Madison's.
Always had good time at Madison's Laurier Ottawa, the really good part is they do make mistakes, but they do make up for them when they happen, and that is important. My last visit and most visits they are were flawless. Thanks
Alex our waiter was fantastic. The prime rib was awesome!
I had the angus steak that was ordered medium and it was at best medium well and quite tough. The clam chowder was quite good.
Overall I was disappointed and will not be returning as there are a number of much better restaurants in Ottawa.
Excellent service et la côte de bœuf au jus était succulente!!
A really nice evening. First time at Madison's and will not be our last. Food and service was excellent. Very pleased with ambiance. For a bonus something that many restaurants get horribly wrong, the table setting and chairs were really comfortable so you can sit comfortably and really enjoy your meal. My whole group had a great time.
Le restaurant était vide et sans ambiance. Malgré tout, le service était très lent (50 mn avant de recevoir le plat), et ce n'était pas ce que j'avais commandé. Une grande déception.
Fantastic restaurant not far from Downtown Ottawa. I started with a Mykonos salad which is largely tomatoes and cucumber with a definite Greek flavour excellent! My wife had a sirloin and I had a baseball steak both were cooked the way we ordered them and very well seasoned. I believe this place can get busy I definitely recommend reservations
Food was prepared to our expectation. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and specials for that day. The only negative point to mention was that while we were there a bus load of teenager arrived and the noise level increased by 200%. The nice background music was not noticeable anymore.
Seven of us went for a lunch. We had booked ahead and said we would prefer a round table and that is exactly what we got. The waiter was not only excellent at his job, he was personable and funny and we all appreciated his humour. Our food came in a very timely fashion and all orders were correct. The bills came when asked for and there were no errors. All in all an excellent experience and everyone enjoyed it.
Très bon repas et excellent service de Mathieu. Merci
Nice restaurant off the main strip. Quality food, nice decor.
First time here and we can't wait to be back. Great food and service !
Great location with lots of light
The service and food are great! I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was great and the server was fast and accommodating.
Solid wine prices by the bottle, we had a bottle of the CC Merlot, and a Valpolicella which were under $100 combined. Filet steaks didn’t have a ton of flavour but were cooked as requested. The person I was with who got the rib steak was very satisfied but hey, it’s a rib steak. Raw Tuna appetizer was the best food item that we had. Server was attentive and made good suggestions. Dessert options were pretty good as well.
The Server was spectacular...also was at the bar area a couple of days after and she was our server there for a while...excellent! I would suggest promoting her:))))
Our overall experience good. Food was good, but not great. Would we come back? Maybe, but quality and taste of the food was just okay. For the price and the value, we are unlikely to come back anytime soon.
Great spot, the food is amazing and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. Will definitely be eating here again.
The service was excellent and the food was good. Woudl love to have few more choises for vergetain itmes on the menu.
Great spot for Valentine’s Day, karolene was one the best waitresses we’ve ever had and the food was second to none...the Lobster bisque was to die for. Atmosphere was surprisingly intimate for what it was, the only downfall which was not really the restaurant’s problem was a couple got sat next to us who thought it was acceptable to bring in a crying child with an iPad while the father talked loudly on his cellphone the whole time...kind of a mood killer and not a very cool move on valentines evening. I would definitely return though!
Not a bad place. I reserved through open table for Valentine’s Day. We were seated in the bar area which was ok but we should have been informed of that in advance, our choice of restaurant might have been different had we known. The second disappointing thing was a featured menu for Valentine’s Day. I understand why but again we should have been made aware of this when we made the reservation. Will I go back , maybe because service was pretty good and food was ok.
Andrej was our server and was incredible; he made our experience that much more enjoyable and memorable. Great food, very nice place but louder than we preferred (and we were tucked away in the dining area not the bar).
I’d highly recommend Madison’s and would return on our next trip to Ottawa.
Great service, food was good. Delicious salmon tartar, Mediterranean chicken was dry, no Mediterranean flavour?!
Very loud group next to our table, having a conversation was challenging. Overall good
Called and directed to make reservation online. Website was super slow on iphone and desktop computer. Arrived at noon and only got our orders at 12:45pm. Very disappointing.
The daily special (grilled chicken with crab meat and asparagus) was excellent! Service was very good too for our group of 5. Thank-you!
My guest had a problem with his sirloin steak. It was not easy to cut and definitely not going to be eaten. The restaurant solution was to replace the steak with a rib steak that we requested. They also took my steak dinner back so that it could be served at the same time so we could eat together. This is what made the evening salvaged. going back to when I arrived, I had asked for my table; I was not told that my guest was there. I actually sat in the foyer waiting for 10 minutes, I was about ready to leave when a new hostess advised me that my guest had been waiting for 10 minutes. Can you imagine we almost missed each other?
Food looked great but sadly lacked in flavor. I ordered a burger and it tasted exactly like a hotdog. The waiter told us that the salmon was huge and it took him two days to finish. So of course that sparked our interested, when he returned with our food the salmon was a regular restaurant 4oz cut of fish. So I felt like me and my friends were swindled.
