The restaurant is a lovely space with interesting art.the service is good. There is a decent wine list with some fairly priced tasty wines. The sea bass and abalone are always good. Any special is good. The foie gras is very good as is the abalone. Pear tart not yo be missed. Flaming table side dessert is a kitschy but... More

One is enough to describe this place... Exquisite! The ambiance is perfect and the staff is very attentive. Will make the "to go" place for date night.

We returned to Madeira and found it as wonderful as we did the first time. The Ceviche Madeira is a delicious start and the Copa Helada with Madeira 5 is a great finish. Anything you order in between will be perfect but the Ahi Tuna and either Beef Tenderloin are excellent choices.

The dimmed lit atmosphere and superb quality of food and wait service make this a must dining experience for any special occasion. The reason I say special occasion is because the price is commensurate with the quality (perhaps a few might say a bit too pricey-but it is no more expensive than very fine dining in a big city such...

The quality of the food is absolutely superb & impeccable. The service is just as great & the ambience makes it the total package. My favorite RGV restaurant for fine dining. Great for a romantic dinner. Love it!

Very nice place, great service but very expensive and hard to find, the appetizers we ordered weren't that great and were over priced as well as the drinks we had. Nice place but prices are too high for the quality they're serving.

We were in Brownsville on business for a few days and on the last day wanted a different cuisine from traditional Mexican food. We located Madeira on Tripadvisor. It was Monday evening and they were busy, but fit 6 of us in. When we arrived, we were greeted enthusiastically. The atmosphere was warm, very sophisticated, and welcoming. If you have... More

We found this place through TripAdvisor and confirm good reviews about Madeira. The restaurant is somewhat difficult to find, but with help of my GPS we located it ok. Food was great. We loved the salmon tartar and a steak. Portions are moderate, service very nice. We had a table outside, which was very nice. Over all a nice place... More
