We went to this restaurant on New Year's Eve 2013. The food and service were excellent. Kudos to our waiter Ernesto. He provided great service and was very attentive. I'm not sure why others were negative. We had a delightful experience.

Upon entering Madeira for the first time, I was impressed by the elegant decor. Then I saw a sign that lunch was only being served in the bar area dining room (Al's I believe it was called) and our reservation holding party of 5 was ushered in to that area by someone that may have been a bartender, judging by...

When we sit at the bar, we always get a handshake from the owner or bartender and a "Welcome to Madeira". Of course this is Portuguese food that is always very good. All the appetizers are outstanding and he soups are excellent. The omelets are a nice light offering. If looking for a tasty entrée order the pork and littlenecks.... More

My husband and I went here for a Saturday night out and really enjoyed the food. My only two complaints are that that vegetables I could tell were frozen and not fresh and the bread was also served not warm which was kind of disappointing. Other than that, the food was really great - very tasty seafood. The service was... More

O.k. so the title is a little misleading. Overall, as this review will indicate, we enjoyed this restaurant for its food and atmosphere. But in 60+ years of eating out, (in the U.S., Europe, Australia, etc.) I have never been refused a glass of (free) water. Granted, Europe puts a premium on ice, but come-on, refusing to give you water... More

My husband and I went there for lunch. He ordered a shrimp dish and I the sea bass. When my husband's dish came out, it wasn't the one he wanted so they promptly sent it back, no questions asked, and made him the other shrimp dish. The waiter was exceptional and we both enjoyed our dishes. We are looking forward... More

I've been a customer for 15 years, my wife and I went for dinner last night and the food was very different so I brought it to the attention of my waiter who just quickly brushed it off as if no big deal so I stopped another waiter to ask why the food wasn't prepared as it usually is and... More

We had an event at Madeira and it was a painful experience. The service was hands down the worst I have ever experienced, and the food wasn’t remotely good enough to make up for it. -I set up the night before and confirmed with the owner that we would be arriving just before noon and we were told that was...
