“Come hungry!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

The challah french toast was fantastic as were the omelettes. Each meal was really enough for two people but tastes so good you may not want to share. Absolutely a top notch place for breakfast for about $10 per person.

“Just what you want in a diner”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Had brunch at the Madison Restaurant with friends and kids. It's exactly what you want in a diner. Huge menu, including two pages of breakfast possibilities. Clean, attractive corner location with lots of light. Fast, efficient service. Good food. Got a table for six immediately. Nothing fancy, but food is good. Fresh squeezed juice. Big omelettes. Hash brown side order is huge and crunchy brown! I'd definitely go again.

“Over priced and over cooked food.”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Ordered a Monte cristo which came out burnt. Should never have been sent out of kitchen and the turkey on top was dry. Salad was passable. Not quite fresh. Maybe their other food is better.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

On Feburary 12 we were trying to decide on where we wanted to go for brunch. The staff at our hotel sugested Madison's as a great alternative to the typical overpriced NYC brunch. They were right! After walking a few blocks we found a great local diner that was packed with hungry locals and The occasional celebrity. We were seated quickly, served efficiently and brought a great breakfast. Atmosphere? A local place full of people that were clearly enjoying themselves.

Great food for a reasonable price!
