“Devine Dining at Madison”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Was not expecting this to be as good as it is. We went with another couple and ordered a number of dishes to share, which I highly recommend. The service and wine selection was excellent and the food is really top notch. We are food and wine snobs of a sort and this place has a fun vibe and great food. Like most of Shanghai, it isn't cheap but it is worth it.

“Great new American cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The new location is great, if you feel the need for good ambiance and good american style food in Shanghai this is the place.
In addition if you are looking for an excellent Thankgiving Dinner one that will absolutely make you feel that you are still at home in the US give them a call.
Friendly staff, great bar selection and can accommodate large parties.

“Great Chef, Wonderful Cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We went to Madison based on a word of mouth recommendations after Chef Austin Wu won an award in "That's Shanghai." Our part was comprised of 6 and we started the evening in the bar where there were many interesting and unique alcohol choices. Being a gin affectionato I tried 48 flowers, an imported gin from the Black Forest in Germany, which was one of the best gins I've ever had. The hostess was polite and did not rush us even though our reservation time had come. We were seated efficiently and the wine service was great. For China the wine selection was good. The menu was robust with many choices and different flavors. The menu is American Fusion and includes ala cart items along with a set five course menu. The menu changes regularly to take advantage of locally grown items. We requested the set menu, however it was unavailable. When I expressed my disappointment, Chef Austin came out and created a set menu on the spot. The menu was amazing and included both beef and salmon, a wonderful appetizer, and a desert to die for. The set menu is a bit pricey but worth. I would highly recommend this venue for a celebration or friends gathering.

“Hip place and decent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It is a very neat place to go to. It has a nice ambiance. I have eaten there twice and the food is fairly good. Again nothing that is out of this world as it is typical to Shanghai but would recommend. We did wait over an hour for our main course if not longer but we were having a good time and did not mind. The chef sent out a plate of vegetables for the long delay. A bottle of wine would have been nicer than cauliflower.

“Best Turkey Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

A group of 15 of us are currently sitting in Madison, and we unanimously agree that we just had the best turkey every, no matter if a thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, or where in the world. The Irishmen say "the best d... turkey EVER, would get up in the middle of the night for it!!!"

So, no matter if you like white or dark meat, it was juicy and succulent - the citrus apparently does the trick. The stuffing was the best we've every had. We can't agree what was next best after the bird, some say the super creamy, chive Mashed potatoe - once again the Irishmen commented it was the taste of home! The bean salad was crispy, the gravy bacon studded, the sprouts were a perfect balance between tangy, creamy and smokey. The cranberry were ginger and orange infused. All topped off with alight and fluffy pumpkin pie with bourbon cream!!

As with all good holiday meals we are stuffed to the max and very happy celebrating in a family environment!

Can not recommend Sunday Suppers enough!!!
