“Nice casual place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The food is simple, but good. It's also pretty consistent. You go through a cafeteria line and pay at the end, which makes this an efficient place to eat. I like the salads.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

La Madeleine offers delectable food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some of my favorites are egg white omelet, potato galette, tomato soup, and French onion soup. The menu also includes lighter fare (fruits, salads) and specials are posted .

The staff is friendly and works together to keep the restaurant space clean and tidy.

I visited this location for a meeting and surprised at the size of the private dining room and its proximity to the restaurant's fireplace.

This La Madeleine location is a short walk from the Bethesda metro station. There are a few parking space in the lot directly in front of the restaurant. A County parking garage is at the corner of Woodmont Ave and Old Georgetown Rd- La Madeline provides stickers for one hour of free parking in the garage, be sure to ask the cashier before leaving the restaurant for the sticker. Metered off-street parking is available.
