Food was good, basic. Went at lunch time and it was quite loud and difficult to have a conversation. Not good for big parties, 4 at most. Good location if you want/need to stay near Grand Central and enjoy a quick bite and a drink

My office is around the corner but for the past 10 years I have never been here. Went for the first time on Monday to take one of my employees out to lunch. Service was good and food was very good. Enjoyed it a lot

Wednesday I gas to take clients to lunch so I thought I would go back. Asked of the had the shrimp bisque soup and was told they did not. We ordered lunch and she came back and said she found out they do have the soup. Two people at the table ordered it. Lunch then was served but no soup. Right after they placed the lunch plates down. The soup is served. No apology that it came at the same time and now I have two hot dishes to eat. We were there for about an hour. We were finished with our meal and the hostess came over to say they needed the table. No problem with that but how about a "sorry"

Food great but could use some table service etiquette

Service was great, they were very attentive. Ordered a charcuterie board and bottle of wine to share with friends - what you receive on the board isn’t really worth the price.

Nice place to meet for drinks or dinner with friends near GCT. In warm weather they have a few outdoor tables, which are quieter and offer good people-watching. Our server Ramon (i think that was his name) was great.

I am normally a fan of the Madison and Vine team, however, we had a less than stellar experience with the hostess. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation. Nobody greeted us. We were told that they weren’t open yet for lunch. The hostess suggested we wait outside. I tried to let her know that I had a reservation. She again told us to wait outside. She then proceeded to lock the doors behind us which was hysterical because the sliding window wall was completely open to the sidewalk! She than sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender. Perhaps an adult should be hired to babysit this unprofessional hostess.

We ordered two salads at 1230. They didn’t come until 120PM.

The restaurant was so loud that we couldn’t hear each other speak.

Salad was lettuce and a minimal amount of meat. Absurd for the price.

The noise level at lunch was so loud that we couldn't talk. My steak salad ($20) consisted of a bed of greens with 4 very small thin slices of steak and one piece of cheese about the size of my fingernail along with 3 cherry tomatoes halved around the outside of the plate. They certainly made a profit on that one ! My friend's fish & chips (also $20) came with exactly 3 (yes THREE) cottage fries, and 3 pieces of what were basically large fish sticks. Should have listened to a friend who warned that cocktails here are $20 a pop.

My husband and I popped into Madison & Vine after a networking event. I suppose it's our fault for seeking a meal in midtown, but the prices were quite high for what we got. $24 Mac and Cheese? We were starving and desperate, so we gave in, but we probably won't return. The waiter was very nice though.

We had a quiet summer Sunday brunch. Comfortable layout, not tables all packed together. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Pace of the service was good. Was not rushed, nor did we feel neglected.

The food was creative and very flavorful. Portions sizes were perfect for a brunch. Very satisfied with the quality of ingrediants and preparation. Had an excellent berry parfait as dessert. Nice finish.

This is near our apartment and we will be nack.

Very nice lunch here - great NYC day and so we sat inside but with the restaurant opened up - really great. Very nice waiter - we spent a long time there and he was very patient and gave us outstanding service. My burger was outstanding - juicy, perfectly cooked, and fresh. Highly recommend Madison and Vine for a nice lunch.

This is my go-to midtown lunch spot, whether it's a business or personal meal. I keep saying I'll have something other than the lamb sandwich one of these days. Failed again today. Perfectly happy with that.

This was the perfect place for a business meeting breakfast. I have been to a few other restaurant locations around the area for breakfast and some tend to get too loud. It was nice as this was a quiet spot to actually have a conversation.

Irresponsible Dining Experience. Dirty, expensive, extremely limited menu.
It's attached to a hotel so perhaps they give vouchers to guests. No reason to ever
go here. Bad choice on my part.
