We have had a vaca home in Cambria for five years. We enjoy good food and are adventurous foodies. We had heard mixed reviews on Madeline's so we went to other favorite, familiar restaurants instead. Walking down Main St. We stopped, read the menu, and said OK, it's about time we eat there. Saturday, excitedly, we went for dinner. So... More

We ate at Madeline's last night and had a great meal supported by fantastic service. We stopped in early in the afternoon and made reservations for that night with no problems. When we arrived they stated they had a cancellation for a great table and seated us in the back corner, which was very nice and mostly out of the... More

We always make it a point to enjoy a meal at Madeline's. The inside is very inviting, parking easy, food great and supported with an extensive fine wine list, The costs are relatively high but the experience well worth it. We highly recommend it. My wife just loves the large pork chop. I have tried several dishes and found them... More

We have been to Cambria 6 or 7 times, but this was the first time we tried Madeline's, and by far we thought this was the best meal we had ever had in Cambria. The duck with a dried cherry and brandy reduction with scalloped potatoes, was sublime. The rack of lamb in a mustard glaze was also excellent. My... More

We were celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary. Started off sitting out in front on the patio sipping our wine and enjoying the cool evening breeze. Dinner was amazing and the dessert was complementary! This is one of our favorite places to celebrate special occasions!

Our dinner here was top notch. The service was impeccable and the food was unbelievable. My husband had the filet and crab cake. Both were cooked to perfection.

Bad start. Reserved a specific table the day before. It was taken with many other tables available when we arrived. Worse, the maitre d’ just lies. Told 3 different stories about why our table was gone. We would have left if we knew where to go. I am not a fan of Central Coast wines. We had a half off... More

as we travel around, my sweetheart and I, being diverse in our culinary tastes, its sometimes tricky to find something we both can drool over. we certainly found it at madeline's. I thoroughly enjoyed the madeline salad with stuffed beets, sweetie had the spinach bacon salad and some kind of pork chop with "a brussel sprout" that he devoured. I... More

We enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu with wine pairing. Each dish was so delicious. My husband actually liked the salmon, an amazing feat as he "hates" all fresh seafood! We loved our conversation with David (owner) and Collins ( each wine he selected was perfectly paired with the food). We were SO happy we chose Madeline's for our 33rd anniversary... More
