The menu has changed,and the restaurant does not serve burgers anymore. The bar does,but not the restaurant. The lack of truffle fries is why I am downgrading my review. The staff was ok,but I had my mouth watering for a burger,and was denied. The view is very nice,good locale. I would go back to eat at the bar next time,to... More

Our expectations were high for Madera. We went there for lunch. The restaurant is pretty with a lot of business lunches going on. Service was great and we never felt rushed. I had the chicken. It was ok. The white and dark meat were put together in a roll shape. I do not like dark meat, but the server said... More

The restaurant is beautiful and the food is very unique. I had the lamb and my friends had rib eyes and halibut. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dinner and a delicious glass of Pinot... More

Rosewood hotel in Menlo Park is really a special and lovely place and the madera restaurant is terrific for breakfast and lunch, especially on the deck during a warm Spring or summer day.

Private room dining with an excellent choice of beverages. The food was divine. Three choices per course were offered and certainly did not disappoint. Loved 'the twist' on menu choices which made the courses exciting and certainly not average. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced staff tended to our every need. Fantastic food, service and ambience. Will be back again!

My husband and I had Valentine's Brunch at Madera. The atmosphere next to the fireplace was romantic and the service was attentive. However, the experience left much to be desired because the crab benedict and the smoked salmon benedicts were not fresh. The bottle of champagne needed more chilling and there was not an enticing dessert for this special day.... More

This was a really nice spot with a nice airy feel and very nice views. The tables were well spaced and the food was quite good. The service was a bit slow as a breakfast rush overwhelmed the wait staff.. This seemed more of a management issue that a problem with the servers themselves. They kept a brave face.
