Danielle, (the proprietor) has been preparing excellent food for years. My wife and I have been following him since the days that he had his restaurant near Advocates chambers. And then to Sunnyside. And then to Lynnwood. But we are not regular customers. We reserve visits for special occasions, and treat ourselves.

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of dining at La Madeleine on many occasions. This restaurant takes its name from the shell shaped Madeleine biscuit of which French writer Marcel Proust once wrote "that it invades the senses with exquisite pleasure".

The service was good. There is no physical menu and the waiter had to repeat the choices a few times before we could decide. The restaurant is cosy with a warm fire in winter. The food is well prepared with perfect flavours. I can recommend for the food connoisseurs.

Although on the expensive side, it was a wonderful evening. The service was excellent, the waiters friendly and professional. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. Well worth it.

After trying one after another of those up-market shopping mall restaurants, we finally made our way here. The service was stellar -truly professional, friendly, and not insanely subservient, like too many places here. The food was excellent - great fresh King prawns from Mozambique, excellent mussel appetizer with an Indonesian flair. My wife wasn't too thrilled with the veal, so... More
