    Everything for the most part was delicious! I had the Linguini with clams and thought there could have been more garlic in it. It was a little bland. The cheesecake slice was small for the price. Otherwise we enjoyed it very much. The salmon was delicious!

    A lovely place to meet dear friends for a before Christmas lunch. We ordered appetizers because the lunch menu is very limited. Water views and cozy fireplaces were wonderful. Interior dining area is uninspired. Bar area is ok, though. I would go again for sound views especially at lunch time when the crowds are thin.

    The Wharf use to have a great lunch menu--now their menu looks like a dinner menu. the menu should include Quiches and Omelettes. For some reason all fried foods have been eliminated meaning no more great french fries and fish and chips

    We went on Sunday night and sat at the bar. Matt was the bartender and made the experience phenomenal. My wife told him what she liked to drink and he said "I got you" and whipped up a fantastic drink. The shrimp cocktail and the tuna appetizer was phenomenal and we tried the burger and was not let down. We will be back!!

    A meal at this location is always a positive experience! Having valet service offers a special elegance that makes any visit seem regal. During this visit, the waitress was very helpful and accommodating. I had a luncheon scheduled to review a business matter and both of my guests felt unhurried and at ease. All of the other staff also does their best to always make the restaurant a welcoming environment. In my profession, I concentrate on managing and evolving what makes an amazing customer experience. One of the attributes that my company always focuses on based upon feedback from our clients is having them feel recognized and greeted. At each point of interaction related to this visit, everyone on the staff went out of their way to acknowledge me and my guests. Being a guest who doesn’t frequent this establishment very often, feeling remembered and being called by name by Kim and Kevin resonated with me because of what my business always looks to establish in our environment. Whether you are looking to go for an exquisite drink at the bar, a quick lunch or a five course elegant dinner, this restaurant fits the bill for location, quality, class and experience.

    We stayed for the night while visiting from out of town..check in was fabulous from valet to front desk- spa perfect. Unfortunately, there were painters on our front deck when we arrived to our room- they were there in plain site for approx 1 hr. Considering our room was waterfront and check in is at 3pm -with the time change -we had 1 hour of daylight and the painters were our awesome view. There was a large amount of visible mold on the bottom of the glass shower door-dinner service was mediocre at best- food was lukewarm and just off as far as taste went-I had to ask for a second drink- we had requested a table by the fireplace and were not seated anywhere near there despite multiple open tables that stayed vacant for our entire meal-we are not picky people and have yet to write such a negative review but we will hold you to higher expectations at 400+ dollars a night.

    Took my husband for his birthday, we loved the view and location. However, the food was not meeting the minimum expectation, every dish was burned badly. I would not say anything in front of my husband, but the server did see the burned food when he brought the food to our table. We are from local but I don’t think that I will recommend to other friends.

    We love going to the Wharf At The Madison beach hotel! My husband and I took my sister-in-law there who's never been there who she and her husband live in Punta Gorda Florida where they just had the hurricane! She was in visiting solo her husband was still down in Florida trying to regroup from the hurricane with their house and everything involved in their life! She loved the ambience, sitting near the water and having a great view, she loved the food and the service! As did we as we always do ha ha! Martha was our server and she was fantastic! Very attentive to us the whole time! The sangria was awesome which Martha also suggested! Great time had by all!!
