Great salads that can be a meal. We stopped for a late lunch and got the Waldorf kale and the wedge. I added chicken to the wedge and my husband added shrimp. Both were tasty, lightly dressed and filling. Lots of interesting things on the menu to go back for.

Servers were friendly and the food was delicious. I had the blacked seared tuna which was amazing and our kids enjoyed the fancy grilled cheese. Portion sizes were pretty big, imo.

We went for Sunday brunch. The brunch menu all looked amazing. We tried the crab loaded tots and avocado toast. They were both incredible! Even the kids pizza/fries were better than average. We can't wait to try lunch or dinner.

Had a brunch outside. Had omelette and coffee. Honestly say the best coffee in the county. I didn't even need sugar and cream. I only use those to cover the burn and bitter taste. Omelette was cooked enough but still tender and soft. Server paid just right amount of attention.

It was nice to be back at our local go to. There were new items on the menu, a few new faces, same deliciousness and great service. The patio area has new umbrellas and lighting that make for great outdoor dining. Mad Chef never disappoints.

The tomato bisque was very flavorful and a nice portion. The ‘wedge’ salad toppings were good and the pomegranate added a nice burst of flavor but the iceberg lettuce was tasteless with little color. I would have preferred the toppings on a bed of spring greens. This salad was a bit overpriced as well using iceberg. The service was efficient and kept the ice tea filled. The restaurant itself has a nice ambiance and unique decor. This was my second visit.

we had a Birthday dinner for my twins. Everything was great. the food came on time, was warm, and fresh. My granddaughter enjoyed her dinner, which was off the kids menu. The drinks were yummy as well. It was a little noisy, we sat in the back in a booth. We were not to bothered by it.
We will be back!!
Thanks

Every entree was a hit! There were four of us and we ordered the Bronzini special, the Seafood pot, Sesame encrusted tuna and Lamb rogout. Everyone was super happy with their food. The waiter was attentive to one of us who had food allergies, answered all of her questions and made suggestions which entrees would work for her.


It is an energetic restaurant, you have to speak loudly. Also, I wish when specials are described, the price would also be mentioned. As a guest, it is always uncomfortable asking, why can’t it just be part if the description? People understand that it is a special and that it will cost a little more than the regular menu.

We will return to this restaurant, great food!

First time there and I enjoyed it a lot. It was an afternoon later lunch so it wasn’t very crowded. The service was really good . I had the Reuben tacos and really enjoyed them. I would definitely go back. I would like to see how the service is when it’s crowded.

The food and service was amazing. This was our first visit and we loved everything. Well crafted cocktails, sweet potatoes soup and tuna taquitos are a winner and paella is juicy and well seasoned. Large portion had a ton to take home. Jasmine was our server and she is AWESOME! Entire staff very attentive. We look forward to our next visit!

Great service on behalf of Oscar, beautiful atmosphere. Modern but not overdone. My date and I started with the “Boring Caesar”, which was great. I had the bellini, which was kind of heavy on the syrup, but for $5 I wouldn’t dare complain. My date ordered my original choice, the lamb ragout, which was absolutely perfect. Well-seasoned & nicely cooked pasta! I got the Fifty-Fifty burger, a blend of beef and bacon topped with onion jam and arugula with provolone. It was definitely worth the splurge. We shared the dulce de leche panna cotta for dessert, which was sublime & not too gelatinous. The service was friendly and not overbearing, and we were surprised the restaurant was not packed on a Sunday during brunch hours! Can’t wait to come back for dinner soon.

Disappointing visit. Had been really looking forward to visiting Mad Chef with my wife for a while and unfortunately while our server was kind and attentive, the food was really disappointing. The chorizo cheese appetizer was swimming in oil from the chorizo that lacked flavor and was not even warm. The dinners - fifty fifty burger and fish and chips were OK at best. We will likely not be going back.

We went to this restaurant when they first opened. The Drunk Mussels were a complete departure from the recipe this time around. Original recipe had perfect notes of coconut and lemongrass which was amazing. Not so much now, and they've added a kick to it which didn't help. Everything else was good.

Great food presentation and taste. My husband and I want for the first time on 2/15. We had reservations and was seated quickly. The only reason I did not give a five star for service was because the waiter took a while. However, the general manager checked in with us and served us our drinks pretty quickly. Overall, we had a great time and our meals were delicious.

Mad Chef is a nice place and the food is good. I would not say the food is outstanding. Servers are super nice and knowledgeable, but our server disappeared for a while after we got our food. Prices are good.
