“Saturday Night Fever!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

My wife and I had a great experience with the "2 lobsters for 29.95" available Sunday to Thursday, and decided the food was good enough to invite friends for an early Saturday night dinner. Saturday night, or Friday night for that matter, anywhere in the Hamptons is a real test for the kitchen and the food came through with flying colors. The bad news was the sound level was beyond belief, and the background music and bar crowd made it worse. So go-but not on a weekend night unless you don't want conversation.

“Great, great food even if noise level is "exuberant"”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We know the owner, Michael Glucksman, through all of his restaurant ventures on the East End and he brings a great touch to his establishments. Madison on Main has replaced a long time favorite, the Paradise, but we're not complaining. The food is fabulous even if the prices are a bit "hamptony". But you can have small plates and lower your cost -- the salads are great, the short ribs, the lobster roll and above all the sword fish. The chef, Eric Miller, is great.

On the down side the bar scene in the front of the restaurant is daunting so on a summer weekend I wouldn't go near this place for dining. Unless you can sit way in the back or out on the porch. I'm looking forward to the off-season!

“Wonderful Lunch”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I had lunch here with business colleagues last week and we were all pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was empty and we ate at a table in the rear, on the outside patio. We had grilled tuna tacos with hand cut French fries, shrimp cocktail with massive shrimp--the portions were very generous and the prices and the flavors were wonderful. The server was very attentive, although she had a knack of asking how things were every time I was in the middle of an important sentence. I am going to add this restaurant to those I will bring clients to--I hope they do well.

“Great Food, Lotsa Noise”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Had read reviews about the noise level of this restaurant. Being from Sag Harbor, I always like to check out our new local restaurants to see how they live up to their reviews. In this case, Madison & Main does. The food was excellent; the noise level was deafening at the entrance and in the bar area. In fact, when we visited, not only was the level of noise horrible, but there was a guitar player and singer trying to be heard above the din of the diners. However, on the plus side, the further to the rear of the restaurant you go the quieter it becomes. There is also a patio in the rear, where the ambience was just fine. So, if you want an excellent dining experience, dine at this restaurant early in the evening, or be seated in the rear or on the patio.
