I was there with a friend. We were seated quickly in the outdoors area. The service was fast, water was served as soon as we sat down. We didn't have to wait long for our menu and our waitress was pleasant and polite. The food was delicious. My skirt steak was done to my liking. For those who like it... More

Wasn't planning to go here initially but ended up going because the other place didn't work out. Got seated immediately outside and despite being quite busy service was prompt and efficient. I had the lamb burger which was excellent. Fries were a bit soggy but otherwise everything was great. We got the peppers and calamari as appetizers, both of which... More

A bit cramped and not a lot of intimacy, but a great brunch spread. We went for Valentine's day so there may have been some specials, including the filet mignon, but it was all fabulous. Friendly & attentive service and a good jazz band rounded out the morning / early afternoon. Couldn't find the lot that validates parking but that... More

I chose the 3 course meal for less than $20. Salad and dessert was great! More vegetarian options would have been nice. The dining room was much nicer than the bar area. The waiter was very nice and helpful.

Took the family for dinner on a Friday night. Made a reservation but not necessary. Waited 5 minutes after we sat down and had to ask for a waiter. Then service improved dramatically. The portions are good sizes and the prices were reasonable. Our entrees were delicious and cooked exactly as we asked. We had the sirloin sliders, filet mignon,... More

Went out for drinks, then dinner, for my hubby's birthday. Bar tenders here were very friendly, and the drinks were tasty. They were experimenting with a new drink that they were contemplating adding to their menu, so they gave each of us a small sample to get our opinions. The vote was a unanimous yes! Dinner was good, although server... More

We had a table for five close to the entrance and to the jazz band. Would advise getting farther away from both to maximize conversation ease. The food and service were very good. As noted by others, the portions are large when ordering off the menu. The buffet price seemed high at $30, but the offerings included a drink (... More

Being from the UK, we're not used to the gargantuan portions of food you can get here in the States, so when your 16oz Ribeye, accompanied with truffle butter and a whole basket of truffle fries with a HUGE steak knife, it's exciting. The food was lovely and the steak cooked exactly how we wanted it. Just the size though,... More

We ate brunch and dinner at The Madison on a recent trip to Hoboken. On both occasions we shared entrees which were very generous, nicely plated, and good eating. The Heirloom Melon salad and the Teriyaki Salmon were our dinner choices and for brunch I would recommend the omelette. The wait staff was efficienct and pleasant and the food came... More

Description
The Madison Bar and Grill is filled with an ambiance and class that is usually reserved for Manhattan eateries. The formal dining room is cleverly decorated in a 1940s style reminiscent of a chic roadside inn. The décor works an evocative, magical mood, with bare wood floors, wainscoted walls, soft lighting and subtle touches from a bygone era. Patrons can also enjoy The Madison’s eclectic American Cuisine at the bar, or, from April-November, outdoors in an al fresco cafe that wraps around the street corner. Be sure not to miss The Madison’s Weekly Events, including the Sunday Jazz Brunch, First Seating, Tuesday Night Martini Madness, Thursday Taco Night and Endless Happy Hour. The restaurant also offers Private Parties and Off-Premises Catering. The Madison Bar and Grill is a great place for families, professionals, romantic dinners or anyone who likes to unwind and enjoy great food, drinks and service in a sophisticated, comfortable eatery.
