Madison de Lu has the best food in Ocean Springs! My favs: goat cheese tort, pork chop, twice baked cauliflower, roasted beets, white chocolate bread pudding.....actually, everything! And eating in the back courtyard is the best!

Girls lunch here. Lots of great fresh food. Goat cheese appetizer was very good and Caesar salad great they make all their own dressings. Fried shrimp were plentiful and just the right amount of batter!

I have never been disappointed here. Sitting in the courtyard in the evening is certainly enjoyable. Pork belly appetizer is very good and thicker cut than most pork belly. I usually got to their bone in pork chop with a side of twice baked cauliflower. All the deserts are fantastic.

There's very little that excites me when it comes to food. But, pork chops from here are one of the most succulent things you will ever put in your mouth!

The fact that this restaurant is ranked #23 is simply because it is expensive......but after several visits I am a fan. My wife LOVED her lamb chops, and my crab cakes might be the best I have ever eaten. They were not even remotely hot (barely warm) but they were still delicious. My only criticism would be having to listen... More

Look at the name and you get the sense that this rather pedestrian restaurant wants to be thought of as superior. I found it forgettable. Nice enough wait staff, nothing seriously wrong, but nothing to justify the inflated prices.

This relaxed spot with superb wait staff and food is our private treat place. When we toast the holidays or just want a great meal, this is our place. Divine osso bucco, fabulous twice baked cauliflower, and lush St. Germain cocktails are our favorites. We never get to dessert as portions are good and we are filled with contentment.

We had a great dinner. It was very nice without being pretentious. The salmon was fantastic. The staff was friendly and prompt. The service was reasonably fast but we were early on a Tuesday evening. If are willing to spend a bit, this is highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant during Cruising the Coast. The menu was preset as most places are during large special events. They are accomodating, they food is always delicious and the service is fast and friendly.

Mostly I have eaten here with a small group, and everyone looks forward to being here for our lunch. They offer a small soft shell crab, dish, or sandwich, either is good. All their food is cooked on site, on your order.

Thank Russell T
