“Great for sports events”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

If you are going to the Bell Centre for an event the loaction is great, but the wait can be long. We waited about an hour on the night of a hockey game. They generally are very nice but they won't be too upfront about the wait, if they are busy they will tell everyone 45 min.
The food is usual Madison's fare which is pretty good for a restaurant chain, very similar to Baton Rouge,
Service, once seated was friendly and prompt. No reservations accepted on event nights make this a last minute choice but for a 7:30 game you probably need to be there at 5 pm

“Please, there are wayyy better restaurants in Mtl. Read this.”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

First of all, never listen to a 60 year old optometrist advice on a steak restaurant just because you don't know the area...she will lead you to the Madisons. We had never heard of this place before for simple a reason : our friends have tase and chose good resrautants. It is not good nor worth it. We paid 85$ for average steak with over-salted 8$ extra mushrooms, horrible service (waitress was robotic and kind of yelling at us), and managers looking furiously everywhere in the restaurant and stressing the staff. Ambiance is really bad as well. Look, if you want to feel like your just another customer in an american restaurant with expensive price for poor-average food then go.. You want good steak? Go to Steak-Frite, Chez Roger of Keg steak house. These are REAL good grill and steam houses in Montreal. PLUS it will be cheaper, better and some of them are BYOW.

“More than satisfied”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I went to the Madisons in Kirkland and had the special which offered a selection of meals at $22 for two. The meal consisted of soup and then ribs,garlic mashed potatoes, and coleslaw. I thought it was delicious and very reasonably priced. I ordered the house wine which was cheap but vile. Next time I will order a glass of something better.
The Swiss reviewer sounds like a profesional complainer.Too much food... full of chemicals...... slingshot service. Go to Joe Beefs Heidi and pay the price. Madisons is all that lofty Europeans despise... a meal like that in Zurich would set you back a days wages.

“Solid portion, decent price, low class service”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I always visit at lunch time, many special deals offered, this place is the paradise of the meat eater. The main room is vast, enlighted. Portion are huge, to much french fries
( acceptable quality ), the place is well noted for their ribs. Taste is correct not impressive. The waitress put pression for selling beer or wine, they put the meal on the table an run away, it's a fight to received basic service, water fill-up, extra sauce etc... The experience is globaly positive.

Hello everyone, once again want to share some i fo regarding the new restaurant i've been with clients. This is fairly new place i was told. Took some clients for a lunch. We were 4 adults. We did not consume any alcool or very minimum. Hre is my comments:
Location: located close to bell centre in Montreal. Very well located, close to businesses and easy access from all directions.
Outside signs: very well advertised, nice sign and very visibale... Great job
Interior: waow.. Well decorated, obvious it is new, lighting is grea, windows everywhere, dark furniture etc... Awesome
Service: welcomed by a few girls, escorted to the table by another person and then welcomed by the waiter responsible for our table. Service was good, polite, the waiter knew what he was doing. A+
Food: we had soup and salad to start with and steak and fish for main course. It was awesome...soup was very good and the steak was sooo good!
Price: we were 4 people & the price was not outragess. The avergae including 15% tip is 50$.
I am reco to people to try this place and enjoy.
