We decided to have our anniversary dinner here and we were so pleased! We were originally seated in a back table that was quite warm on a very hot night but they immediately moved us to a window table and the night was perfect! I had the grilled Sea bass special and it was so flaky and flavorful. My husband... More

Very well done dining experience. Delicious food, excellent wines, and top shelf staff. I wish that I had dined there more.

We were not expecting too much in this cute little seaside town but the food here is surprisingly good. Set in the wine store the atmosphere is quite unique although I thought it odd that all the wines were not available for dinner. The service was but a little too casual and loud. All in all a good dinner.

A Wine Store by day, a Super Hero by night. This is a 5 star restaurant in a quaint California town. We were delighted by the great food and the unique wine list. If your in the area you MUST put this place on your list.

We had been to wine taste at Madeline's previously, but never had dinner there. Didn't know what we were missing! Wine recommendation by our server was an excellent Cabernet.The food was fantastic, presentation beautiful and service was excellent. I had the Diver scallop appetizer with mushroom duxelles with a buerre blanc sauce. My husband had the eggplant soup with garlic... More

My boyfriend and I had the Chef's Tasting Menu and wine flight. It was our first time there, and with the first bite of our abalone, our eyes went wide, and there was no let down for the whole meal. In fact, I insisted that we go back the next evening.

We went to Madeline's based on my brother's recommendation. He raved about the food and we wanted to see if it was true. It was! My husband and I still rave about his polenta dish and my filet. The steak was cooked perfectly! Our waitress, Asia, was very attentive and welcoming. We had eaten at Robin's the night before and... More

You enter the restaurant and encounter lots and lots of wine bottles. This restaurant takes its wine seriously! The waiter's recommendation was great. We had a wonderful Tempranillo that was an excellent choice with the duck and rabbit we selected. The duck with cherries was very tender and a little different; the rabbit was maybe a little less exciting, but... More

We found Madeline's on TripAdvisor and weren't disappointed. My wife's French Onion soup was excellent, as was the Potato Leek soup that I started dinner with. I had lamb stuff pastries for an appetizer that were hot and tasty, while my wife had scallops that were a bit overcooked and served with an odd sauce that resembled a ragu (we... More
