“Never Disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Had Christmas dinner there this year and, as ALWAYS, our meals were devine! Had filet mignon and it was, as usual, melt in your mouth tender and cooked to perfection. I'm so glad we got the last two available reservations. I have a Service Dog and Madeline's is quite small but brining my Service Dog was not an issue at all. Desert was a Persian Key Lime pie with raspberry sauce. A fantastic combination. It was a MERRY Christmas! Thanks, David!

“Delicious New Years Eve Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We had dinner here Dec. 31, 2013. The menu was fixed so we'll have to go back to sample the other wonderful offerings. The service was very good and friendly. Our reservation was at 6 pm - although early we good great service and attention. The restaurant began getting crowded at 7 pm. There is no waiting room, other than the samll wine bar which filled quickly so people were standing around. Fortunately, we had been seated at a table that was out of the way so didn't have anyone crowding us. Dinner was $65/each and included a glass of champagne.

“Christmas Eve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

There were three of us spending our Christmas Eve dinner at Madeline’s. We ordered the filet mignon with the crab/lobster cake on top and the short rib ravioli. We enjoyed our meals so much that we will be back again next time we are in Cambria. We will try to order something different, but I don't think so!

“A "No Brainer" for a fantastic meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

If you want a really good meal you NEED to come here. Staff was awesome...got me in on a last minute reservation on a Saturday night when it was busy.(Who does that anymore??!!) When something didn't come out to my liking they were on it instantly. Atmosphere, food, wine, all fantastic.
