“Great Atmosphere - Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

You don't go here for great value or mass quantities of food. You go here to impress your significant other or whom ever you may be with.
We've eaten here for lunch in the past and had two good meals and one forgettable meal.

Our seat was excellent with a view of the gardens below. The service is good, not overly attentive but good. I had the omelet and my bride had the french toast. Both were good, but it is hard to ruin either of these meals. Price was high but you are paying for the atmosphere and you are at "Madison's".

“Luxury Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Early risers, we walked upon Madisons shortly after 7am and found immediate seating despite a long reservation list. Our waiter, Milton, was attentive and personable. Excellent coffee and a great diversified menu. French toast was light and delicious and the veggie omelet well prepared. The setting is very special with large comfortable pillow filled booths---we stayed in the comfort to enjoy the coffee and one another.

“Wonderful once again.”

Ate on patio, casual early dinner with out daughter & grand-daughter. Menu was just right for the time of day. Wine selection and food great. Thank you for so many good years of memories in your restaurant.
