I went just last week with my friend and I had a great time. I even ran into another old friend while seated outside. The place is deceiving from the front, as there is a seating area toward the back that is very accommodating. The...drinks and food are spot on as well. Try pork chop, half chicken or look for special items.More

We went there for our anniversary dinner. We reserved a table through opentable so when we got there, we got a table immediately. The wait for the food was average but the food was excellent. We liked the ambiance and decor of the place. Highly...recommended.More

Sat ,in the Bar area for Happy Hour and got last table. Drinks took a long time to get but Chi the very nice waitress comped our first round as we got our food before the drinks. Ahi Tuna Poke and portabella fry appetizers were...good for HH prices of $7-$8. Light Sail HH cocktail was delicious for $8.00. Bers were good for $7. Was a good place to try for Happy Hour.More

We came here to listen to jazz. What a beautiful venue. Loved all the woodwork & modern decor. We enjoyed the food & music but felt that patrons weren’t really listening to the entertainment but talking instead. Would have been nice to have the focus...be on the musicians.More

Folks come to Madison to enjoy the beautiful space, to see and be seen and, as a bonus, sample some excellent food and drinks. The menu leans toward Mediterranean, but includes enough options that everyone in the party can find something that they like. The...bar is one of the best in town with many unique options. Service is friendly and professional. Well worth a visit.More

Madison affords great ambiance and a trendy, modern, and very aesthetically pleasing decor. They have an indoor dining area next to the bar, along with a beautiful covered outdoor dining area with various tables and booths. We ate at Madison for brunch, which was lovely....I enjoyed the "healthy" mimosas and the GOAT sandwich. Service was friendly. Recommended!More

Well designed contemporary space with a full bar at the front and tables for dining at the back. The service was friendly and efficient in both areas. Kind of low key when we were there (5:30 dinner reservation on a Wednesday). The menu is small...selection-wise which I prefer. There is something for everyone’s taste. I had gnocchi which was fresh and homemade. A nice light sauce and a couple of shrimp. I would return.More
