“Legends in their own mind”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My wife and I enjoy going out to dinner and Madeo was one of our favorite destinations, but not after last night. With a six o'clock reservation and a booth requested, we showed up on time, well-dressed, only to be offered a small table in a busy corridor pinned below the bar with the restaurant not even half full! More than that, the meal wasn't all that great this time for the price. The salad was a little above average, the burrata tomato and cheese decent, the pasta almost average and the swordfish smothered in marinara sauce good, but not great. However, the price was great. When you pay top end, you should get top end food, and this was not the case. When we left, the restaurant still half empty and three booths still available as they seated two people in one the booths wearing t-shirts and tennis shoes. I guess it's who you know or maybe we should have worn t-shirts and tennis shoes! I mentioned it to the hostess later by telephone, who stated that she had had a number of cancelations. If that was the case, they could have offered us a better location since you already knew where we wished to sit. The pairing of location with good food makes for a memorable experience, this was forgetable. We have some advice for the owner and management. Take care of good customers who show up first and grant their request to be seated in a decent location instead of planning for people who don't show. Maybe the food tasted better when we had a booth the time before, but it's not important because we're never going back. We guess that when the restaurant thinks they're legendary, they can get away with it. Never again for us. There are too many better destinations in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, they can keep fooling themselves because they are "Legends in their own minds." Arrivederci!

“Amazing Food”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Last night was our second time at Madeo and once again they did not disappoint. This high end, celebrity hangout lives up to its reputation. The service is almost overwhelming. The wait staff is very professional, personable and eager to answer questions about the menu or the huge wine list. I’ve read reviews that were critical of the service, and frankly I don’t get it. The moment you sit down, a plate of focaccia, basket of bread and plate of cheese and olives appears. All of the pastas are homemade. The Bolognese is the best I’ve eaten outside of Italy. The roasted Leg of Veal, hand carved, melts in your mouth, and the Osso Buco was to die for. Save room for the dessert tray featuring homemade desserts. And to top it all off, the owner/chief, this little Italian man visits every table. This is a great place to go for a special occasion, or if you crave Italy, but can only get a far as WeHo
