I was just here recently for lunch. I always felt the price was too high for what you get. But with the new chef, I had a great lunch served. It was worth it.

This infamous little bar with a shady past and maybe present, actually serves an amazing cheeseburger. A lot of people come here not for the food, but for the scenery which on Thursdays usually peaks at a crazy and frenetic high; the ATM in the lobby doing a furious business. The hunters are the new breed of techno dweebs. Their... More

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
