Exceeded Expectations

I had read quite a few mediocre reviews, but friends took us and they knew the place. I'm trying to cut some weight, so I had the Argentinian Steak Salad to avoid all the tempting side dishes that come with meals. The salad was delicious and the steak was flavorful, lean and tender. My wife also... read more

We came here for a family meal on a Saturday night and it was awesome. The service was top notch and the ribs were superb - 3 lots of baby back ribs and beef ribs - very flavourful. The owner was very friendly, and was conversing with all customers during the course of the evening, very welcoming. Our waitress was... More

I treated my two sisters and brother in law here for a awesome meal. Yes we had steaks with awesome sides and deserts and sister enjoyed a glass of wine. Also enjoyed a great meal with a great friend Joe. I of course love salmon and love the many side choices. I believe it's under construction on the outside but... More

The service was good, pretty tight on a graduation night. A little pricey but ok, portions are plenty. My kids ordered the same steak and all 3 were different. A little on the dry side and had ordered med well, but they were sirloin so that comes pretty dry anyway. The ribs were fine. All in all for what we... More

Our waitress Samantha was very nice and helpful. I ordered the Short Ribs at her recommendation and they were just ok. I really did not eat them as they were tough and tasteless. I liked the mashed potatoes and the Spinach was over the top good. My husband ordered the Pepper Steak Filet and the sauce tasted like Swedish Meatballs... More

we took out of town guests there on March 15 2015 for dinner. The restaurant was empty, so was the service. We ordered kalamari, overdone and dry, same with the fried shrimp. We were embarrassed for our guests, their beef ribs were also very tough . I called several times to speak to the owner , and every time I... More

We went to Maderas as a gift from our kids. They had purchased a Groupon certificate for a Christmas gift to us. We were treated especially well by Peggy was our server. She is very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. We both selected the TriTip for our entree. The TriTip was the most tender I have had in a restaurant!... More

Looking for a steak house I chose this one to avoid the common chains, hoping for something a bit special. Steak was Ok but not exceptional, service was OK, reasonable value but probably would not go back.
