I was nervous about the service we'd have for dinner because the service we had when we ate in Madison's for breakfast was not very attentive. But our server was just terrific! The food was variable...we loved our starters but the entrees and sides were...More

The architecture and decor of Madison's sets an elegant, but relaxed, mood. We sat in a comfortable booth next to large windows, and that was part of the pleasant experience here. The food and service were excellent. We had the raspberry and lemon curd stuffed...More

My friend and I love to eat outside at the Wind Garden whenever we are in the area. It is a wonderful place with the little waterfall and lots of plants. An oasis in the midst of Highlands. Great food! Attentive staff.

Overall, we were not impressed with the lunch menu. Chicken Salad Sandwich was good, but only came with fries or chips. No other choices. There was NO caffeine free cold drinks. The waitress spilled water on the table and never came to wipe it up,...More

I love this place! The atmosphere, service, food and drinks are all spot on. It's a great place to sit in the evening and unwind after a day of sight seeing. I highly recommend the hummus or the pimiento cheese dip.

IT has an excellent wine menu. Limited food (compared to inside dining), but more than enough to chose from for all tastes and varieties. Much easier to get a table than inside. We walked up and got a spot.
