Had a wonderful breakfast. Staff was very accommodating. Food was delicious and wonderfully presented. Even the cutlery came hot with the hot food. Such wonderful attention to detail. It's always drafty so be sure to bring a sweater.

My husband and I had dinner here last night. The restaurant is beautiful and well appointed. Our server, Carmel, was personable and knowledgeable about the details of the dishes and Curt, who helped us with the wine choice, was excellent. I had the mahi mahi special which came with a delicious preparation of white and green asparagus and risotto and... More

Have to admit it's been years since we've eaten at The Old Edwards Inn (prior to it's remodel) and when we head to Highlands, the trips are normally too short to adventure further than our "regular" haunts. However, we were booked for Madison's and it was a really great experience. The service was made really special by the wine steward... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a delicious dining experience with my niece and sister. The hosts and waitstaff were very attentive and friendly. All the food was amazing! The waitstaff went way over and above... the menu was a nice variety as everyone in my party ordered something different. The biscuits were over the top delicious!!! And the caramel candies at the end... More

Great food, great wine, outstanding service and attention. Quality ingredients. We love Madison's. We go there for all our meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its tough to find a food establishment that can cater to our food allergies. Madison's staff are top notch on communication, and the word gets to the chef, who in turn will make sure that the...

This was my favorite meal of my trip to Highlands. I had dinner here with my boyfriend on a Friday night and it was fantastic. I recommend making reservations. I had a filet that was so good it almost melted in my mouth. My boyfriend raved about his truffle macaroni and cheese. The service was great as well. Overall, an... More

The food at the spa is from Madison's menu and we also had lunch there. Wish we had dined there for dinner. Food and service were excellent.

The Old Edward's Inn is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay, but Madison's needs to significantly improve. The atmosphere is good but that is where the accolades stop. The wait staff ,although friendly, do not live up to the standards that is expected from a restaurant with this reputation. Water glasses went unfilled and I poured my own wine.... More
