My friends Mahi Mahi was just OK. His wifes' pork chop was not as tender as she hoped. My wifes' crab cakes were just OK. My cioppino was tasty but not as plentiful as other area restaurants. The staff was great & the best part of the visit.
Last times we had Ruebens & they were wonderful!

Jeff the manager, Elaina and our server Natalie were very friendly, accommodating and a great "face" for this restaurant.
The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the reuben sandwich was made with corned beef that was a bit dry... other than that, we felt the food was good and reasonably priced.The sweet potato fries were cooked to perfection and the crab cakes are delicious. The bartender mixed the perfect frozen strawberry margarita for my 95 year old Mom...we requested very light alcohol and it was perfect.
We are not from the area and chose this restaurant from the online reviews. Happy we came!

The food was fairly good, my husband had the Filet Mignon & I had the Crab Cakes.
It was lively there as we were seated in the bar area.

I have been here previously and really enjoyed the food & atmosphere. One of my close friends wanted to take me out for my Birthday, my choice where to go. She has never been to Madeline's. She really enjoyed it and the food. She saw where you have brunch, we are definitely going to take advantage of that.
Our waitress was wonderful. Very pleasant, outgoing and really knew her stuff.
We really had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this as a great place to go!

Appetizers, wine and dinner were exceptional. My husband had the special - Chilean Sea Bass which he continued to rave about through dinner. When my filet arrived it was just a bit undercooked for my tastes. Sophia and the Manager were wonderful! They had it cooked a tad more to perfection! We had Sophia as a server in the past ... and again this evening. She is excellent! Thank you for the lovely evening.

They have a good and varied menu but the entrees are rather pricey. The patio was full but the dining room we were seated in was attractive and quiet.

This was our first experience at Madeline's and it will not be our last. I love that the menu has classic items...with a twist in addition to a few adventurous items. The hubby had wild boar ragu and loved it! I prefer a slightly smaller menu and everything made to perfection. From apps to dessert, it was a wonderful meal. They even surprised us with a little dessert box to take home for our anniversary. BONUS - there were multiple items that could be made gluten free!

We have been to Madeline's several times and have never been disappointed. Service, food and surroundings are excellent. Sam was our waiter and was excellent, making sure everything was as we wanted. And, as usual, the lobster bisque was excellent.
Will definitely be returning.

We love Madeline's. Our server was Sam. A great waiter. Didn't miss a beat.
They have a great assortment of cocktails. Their appetizers are very good. My husband had the boom shrimp and I had the lobster bisque. He had the steak salad, which he enjoyed immensely. The steak was prepared perfectly. I had the Monte Cristo, and enjoyed it very much. Of course we finished it off with a big piece of chocolate cake. Yum!
We know when we dine at Madeline's that we would never be disappointed. The staff is courteous and helpful.

Fine dining with fresh and carefully prepared ingredients. Worth every cent. The servers were excellent and trained in culinary style. Even had the right silverware for the course. Quiet casual bar as well and lighter fare available if desired.
