Omgosh! This place has great atmosphere and courteous staff. Whether I eat in or order take out I've never been disappointed. I especially love the Duet Magnifique combo, so many options to choose from makes lunch so fun and satisfying.

This place is really going to the dogs. Ordered a ham sandwich. After 30 minutes started asking about it. Staff was utterly confused. Got refund and left. This place has been declining for a while but this is the nail in the coffin. Makes my "never again" list.

I have been going to this restaurant chain for over 20 years, and it has consistently been one of my favorite places to eat. The food is decadently rich and satisfying, exceptionally well seasoned, and always fresh and cooked to perfection. If you order Caesar Salad, they add the salad dressing in a mixing bowl and completely blend it into... More

This is one of my favorite Cafe in Dallas. It is a pretty busy place but the service is always great. I love the classic Caesar salad, the dressing is perfect, not too creamy, with just the right amount of cheese in it, yummy yummy! Quiche and coffee are also some of my staple from this place.

This is the original La Madeleine location. Seating is limited by some other locations. Love the food as did my teenagers. Service was friendly and quick but the house level was excruciating loud! Impossible to talk or hear. For that reason I am only giving 3 stars..but the food is worth 4 stars. Very close to SMU and the Bush... More

Madeleine's is a great spot for lunch. Tomato soup is fantastic. Sandwiches and deserts are also great. We usually pick up a few deserts to take home.
