“Enjoy visiting here, great with small children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The Madrona Tree does hamburgers well, but also does its veggie dishes well too. They are well equipped to handle small children, in our case a one-year-old, and were happy to help with small things we needed to keep him happy. It has lovely outdoor seating and a very friendly staff.

“Unique and great food made with love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

The burgers and hand full o fries are delicious. The Mediterranean roll up was too big and too wet to eat because of the large amount of hummus. Most of the menu is from local farms and/or organic. Desserts are in house made. Restaurant is small but cozy. Children are welcome with a kids corner toy/book area. Chef owner is friendly and will answer all your questions. Self service.
Decor is unique. Parking is a gamble. Prices are reasonable.

“Good spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

First time there. Went based upon a recommendation. I liked it. I had the Kibbeh with sweet potato fries. The wife had the portobello burger. She was a little confused by the burger, expecting a portobello cap, but it was ground portobello.

Food was good. Service was good. Atmosphere was ok.

I would go back.

“Once again up to snuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Madrona is a sidewalk cafe in the center of Arlington. Good burgers, outstanding onion rings, and a good tuna salad sandwich. All four of us at the table, plus baby, enjoyed the weather and the good service. Nice place for a Saturday lunch.
