I went on a mother daughter trip- and wanted my daughter to try a French restuarant with me. The staff was friendly and explained how our food was prepared- we also had dessert- molten chocolate cake- wonderful!

“THE MB....lovely lunch, a bit pricey, but most likely once in a lifetime.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The food was good, nice quiet atmosphere for a midweek lunch, very cute place, did not quite see the need to charge for iced tea refills.

“A great neighborhood place”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

This place has a nice neighborhood feel. We went there on a Friday night and were immediately seated. We had nice comfort food ranging from Onion soup to Cheeseburger to a more complex Mediterranean salad. All was very well prepared and served with charming attention. It is definitely worth a visit, especially if you are staying in one of the hotels nearby.

“Madison Bistro is an excellent neighborhood restaurant.”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

We always try to return to Madison Bistro when in New York. We especially like the bar menu. The charcuterie and fromage board is excellent and a great value. The service is always very good. The dinner menu is also very good. Most patrons seem to be retuning- a good reccomendation in itself.
