The host was very friendly and seated us at a widow table just as we had requested when we made the reservation. Our waiter was great and although the place is small it is very comfortable. My husband ordered... More

I have lived in Cambria most of my life and dined in every single restaurant in the area: Madeline's is hands-down my favorite! The selection of wine is amazing, the roasted duck breast and rack of lamb are to die for and there desserts are off the charts. The abalone appetizer is well worth the money too. Collins was the...

We came in without a reservation and were lucky to get a table. This is a small, euro style restaurant with an avid following. Three different locals recommended Madeline's, and the place filled up. We were greeted by the owner/chef David who sat us down and explained his specials for the night. Our waiter was the manager/sommelier who guided us... More

My boyfriend and I visited here on a Sunday night it was nice and quiet at the time when we arrived. We ordered the crab and lobster cakes as an appetizer. Our main dishes were the filet mignon which was cooked medium rare and I had the duck that was cooked in a cherry reduction sauce cooked medium rare. For... More

Just went to Madeline's in November for a special dinner with my best friend. Everything was outstanding! The service was wonderful and attentive, and the food was phenomenal. We ordered a leek and tomato tart for an appetizer, and that tart was like a cloud, so soft and fluffy. I ordered the stuffed pork chop-cooked to perfection and delicious; and... More

We went on Thanksgiving day. The staff was very welcoming and attentive and the food was very good. The only disappointment was the turkey itself. My wife's was a slab of fully 3/4 dark meat and mine was probably half and we both like white. Not as good as what we make at home in terms of flavor either. We... More
