Salmon was fantastic

We ate in the bar at Happy Hour and had a great time. Had drinks and fried green beans, then asked to split a teryaki glazed salmon dinner because we weren't very hungry. They were so lovely, they didn't just bring an extra plate, they separated our portions, filled each plate with side dishes and... read more

We really enjoyed our dinner and time at the Madison. We like sitting in the area behind the Martini Bar by the fireplace. Luke, our waiter, was personable, knowledgeable and attentive. Food served and presentation was excellent. We will be back again soon

The meal was very good, everyone enjoyed their choices. The bar tender was slow for pre-dinner cocktails, not up to the standard of the place. I've had varied experiences a while ago, maybe they are picking up.

Apparently there was a misunderstanding about exactly what is the Café Madison/ Madison Pub. Apparently there... More

Has it all. Outdoor dining with a huge fireplace, indoor bar scene and best of all great food in the main dining room. Our waiter, Scott, guided us through the ample menu and wine list. Everyone from the young man who put on a show making Caesar salad to order at our table to a woman we recognized from TV.... More

The other evening I dined at Cafe Madison along with my wife and a good friend. The atmosphere was very nice and the menu selections offered a variety of choices. Our friend has several food related allergies. The waiter Gregory was very helpful in providing selections and modifications so that our friend would also have a very enjoyable dining experience....
