Get a window table, overlooking the mountains, and feel like you're on top of the world. The service is top-notch, and the food is amazing (of course!). Madera also catered the wedding reception I attended at Rosewood Sand Hill, and it was Michelin-star worthy. The...More

The Madera (in the Rosewood Hotel) has clearly earned its Michelin star with delicious, interesting dishes, each beautifully presented.
