Ate at The Vineyard in Madera. Excellent steaks and local wines. The fig appetizers were fantastic as well. I recommend it and will definitely stop again. Wait staff was on the ball the entire dinner.

I've had dinner at the Vineyard a few times before (great!), but never lunch. I tried it for lunch just last week and it was so great that I went back this week! Very reasonable lunch prices; great menu! The Vineyard is always a nice place to dine.

For a lovely evening in a satisfying atmosphere visit the Vineyard Restaurant on 6th Avenue, Madera, CA. Our family outing was made nicer by the attentive wait staff and the friendly greetings from the manager. The server suggested that the large portion dinner could easily be split for my elderly parents, saving $22 for a second entree and showing her... More

The restaurant is great. We arrived for lunch and were promptly seated. I ordered a Cobb Salad and some ice tea. The salad arrived promptly and it was one of the best Cobb Salads I have ever had. The lettuce was very crisp it was probably picked a few hours before. The size of the salad was large the dressing... More

Trip Advisor reviewers rated this establishment as number 1 in Madera. It was easy to understand. A classy establishment with an eclectic menu. Menu prices were in line with its' level. Very good food. Service was great. We were here on a Thursday night and had called ahead but did not need a reservation. Quiet for dining.

It's sometimes hard to find a fine dining restaurant in a small town (OK, Madera is growing), but this is certainly the best in town, and dare I say, even up against the big boys in Fresno. The variety of cuisine reminds me of San Francisco, so it's hard to say it's "Italian" or it's "California". I'm just happy that... More

I ate here my last day in Madera and was very impressed. We had eaten a late lunch so I just had a pasta, but was it was excellent and every else that I saw being served looked great. And we had an excellent local wine. If I am every in Madera again I will be back.

This is a top notch restaurant that could have stood against the best in San Francisco or Napa! The food, the service were unbelievably good! We had Mo as our server. She was funny, entertaining, professional. My halibut was the best I have had, on par with Alaska. All food tasted fresh, and well seasoned. The manager rotated through the... More
