    Get your computers up to date. They went out of business 3 weeks ago. Relying on my Open Table reservation, I and my lunch companions arrived to find out they went out of business 3 weeks ago. It wasn't funny standing out in the rain trying to figure out where to go. Open Table should know the latest status of a restaurant, like if they are still in business!

    The place is fantastic but my one criticism is the compactness of the dining area. It's overly tight and you are essentially sitting on top of your neighbor which can make having a private conversation overly challenging.

    My wife and I returned to Madison Bistro after long period away, with a French friend, and the 3 of us were delighted with every aspect of the dining experience. The Dover sole meunière was absolutely delicious, well-conceived and perfectly executed. Our friend, a Strasbourgoise, was quite pleased with the Alsatian tart. Everyone in NYC does mussels, but my wife said it's been many moons since she's enjoyed them as much. Finally, Omar, the Francophone maitre-d'hote, took excellent care of us, pouring our wine which has sadly become rare to non-existent in NY restaurants.

    Booked by accident on the way from the office. Great steak tartare prepared by the table side to your liking. I’m not a huge desert guy, but their soufflé is a must! They’ve very good, despite being relatively short, wine list. Quiet place that is great for both friends/colleagues get together to a date.

    We needed a spot for dinner close to our off-B'way. venue. Not knowing restaurants in the area, we choose this one from the reviews and proximity to the show. It's name online is the Madison Bistro. The name on the awning of the restaurant is Cafe Francais. When we each mentioned this, there was surprise that we didn't know the correct name. It looks like a neighborhood bar/restaurant. We had the price fix dinner At $48 (6)? We each had a glass of wine, and ended up spending $75 each. for good food, but not interesting or worth the price. The wait staff was patient and attentive. I was disappointed and will not return.
