Delicious food, great service, and charming setting. A great place to meet up with friends and colleagues, also for family groups. Fabulous location, and terraces for outside dining.

With a wide variety of dishes (in groups of three items) for under $9 this is one of the best places around for good food at reasonable prices. Or, you can spend a lot, but great selection of French-inspired dishes, excellent pastries, wonderful desserts.

La Madeleine is a relatively pleasant place to grab a nice meal, including all day breakfast. The food is quite good and though it's a chain, they do a nice job of providing aw good meal at a fairly reasonable price. There is less customization of your order because of the chain nature of the restaurant but the food served... More

I visited this restaurant three times in the last two months. The service is always the same - patrons of color are not greeted and treated the same as other races. I will not go to the location again. The three times I have gone my customer service experience was not positive. The food rates itself - Delicious.

I have eaten at La Madeleine at Sugarland location many times and love the restaurant. I have eaten at this location 2 times within the past 4 months and not impressed. The dessert special lemon something was hard and inedible. There was trash on the floor and just not up to LM standards. Probably would not eat at this location... More

We enjoy visiting La Madeleine. They have a duet lunch special that included a soup, sandwich, and salad or pasta. They have the best tomato basil soup in the world and the Chicken Parisian sandwich is fantastic. Food is good but the staff are not the most friendly. They aren't mean or rude but they are not friendly either.

When a number of people recommend a French restaurant its probably good to get a feel for there history of travel first. That way you have some point of reference as to taste, culinary experience and values. Nice people who may not have had the privilege of significant travel don't always have a good source of comparisons. I guess what... More

I've eaten at several La Madeleine locations, and one thing you can count on is that the food will be consistently good. Croissants are the best in the city. Breakfast is excellent, and there are always new things to try on the menu.

I wish I hadn't stopped to try this place. It was very disappointing. The food was cold, and the pasta dish that I had was awful. I will not come back and my wife had a very similar experience.

I came in the first week they were open. Never get tired of the Brioche, tomato basil soup, pastries and cappuccino. Almost 20 years of enjoyment!
