We had a reservation for 5:15 on an evening when there was an event at the Bell Centre, thinking that 2 hours would be plenty of time to be served and get across the street in 2 hours. When we arrived we were told our reservation had been for 4:30. I proved to them on my phone I had a reservation for 5:15. We were brought to our table. We were a party of 8. 5 were there. We ordered drinks & a bottle of wine. The owner kept coming by stating they would take away our seats if the other guests did not arrive. At 6 PM we proceeded to order our food and the meal for the 3 people not there. Upon ordering we found out that on event nights they have a "limited" menu. I can understand that but it should be on the website. Again even though we ordered for the 3 not there, we were threatened with losing the seats. The meals took 50 minutes to come. 5 of the 8 were cold salads! Our waitress was fantastic and the food was good. But felt the Owners were very rude. When the other party of 3 arrived they were told to just walk through & find us. We had a reservation, I am sure the maître D had a log of what table # we were at? I have waited 3 weeks to write this, because I actually emailed Madison's directly, very politely with our concerns. I have not heard back. While the food was good, they did not seem to appreciate their customers or feedback, so I will not be going back.
We eat there on business.
Madison offers a lunch menu. Portions are huge; consider sharing.
Coffee is strong : love it !
Restaurant is well set: table cloth is kept cleaned.
Service is usually OK.
Chinese salad : good but just ask to have the dressing on the side.
Fish was OK.
Reservation are required at lunch time.
We went there around 6 pm on a Saturday, the service was decent. We had ordered baby back ribs with grilled chicken breast and Chicken with sautéed giant tiger shrimps - both were very good. Delightful overall and we would come back.
Had the ribs. They were good. Not spectacular. Service was excellent, but then again, there were only 2 other people in the place when we were there.
D'abord, nous sommes arrivés tôt vers 17 heures et toutes les banquettes étaient libres, mais elles nous ont étés refusées. Le décor est plutôt joli. Nous n'avons eu ni verre d'eau, ni pain et on ne nous en a pas offert. Il n'y a pas de table d'hôte (il n'y en a en aucun temps) et parce qu'il y'avait événement au centre Bell, nous avons eu droit au menu «Événement», avec des choix et des prix «ajustés». Le prix des plats principaux variait entre 23 et 47$. La salade «Madison» est la salade pré-lavée la moins cher que l'on puissent acheter à l'épicerie! (La plus fade qu'il m'est été donné de manger dans un restaurant.) Le prix des vins est correct. Pour finir, trop de gens ce sont partagé notre service et malgré qu'on m'a assuré que c'était tranquille, j'ai dû nous servir le vin moi-même à 2 reprises. Bref prétentieux et trop cher.
I went there on Sunday to eat before the Rihanna concert. I came in with six friends and the hostess who took our name at the door said we would wait 25 minutes, we ended up waiting much longer than that (a little over an hour). I don't know if she was new but she didn't seem to know what she was doing, and I saw that she had checked off my name on the list. When I asked her she became confused and said she thought I was sitting down! I WAS SO MAD! I wanted to speak to a manager, but she never called him she said he was too busy. I doubt there was just one manager on the floor but I think she knew I wanted to complain, so she didn't want to call him. I then spoke to another hostess (she told me her name but I can't remember, Karen or Caroline) and she offered to split my group to seat us as fast as possible. While I appreciated that, my friends and I came together and we didn't want to be separated. She was very nice about it and spoke to her manager and they sat us in the bar section shortly after. Once we were seated, the service was VERY fast and our waiter was excellent! Very professional and patient since the place was packed. I had the ribs - yummy! We all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere of the place, and had so much fun we nearly forgot about our frustration with the first hostess. I don't know if I will be back again, but if I ever return I don't think I will go there when there is an event at the Bell Centre.
Soucieux de choisir un plat facile à réussir, j'ai commandé le club sandwich en formule table d'hôte du midi, qui comprenait un potage. La chaudrée de palourdes était un hommage à la pomme de terre, dans lequel le fruit de mer était plutôt oublié. Enfin, à menu pas cher, repas de bas de gamme.
Quant au club sandwich, catastrophe. On a fait un effort pour servir avec un pain de qualité, certes. Mais la viande de poulet était sèche, insipide, racornie. Perdue dans un lit de laitue.
Le tout était agrémenté de frites molles, aussi insipides que le poulet du sandwich, et accompagnées de mayonnaise industrielle.
Le bon côté des choses est que le tout est tellement indigeste qu'il vous restera sur l'estomac pendant des heures. Que voilà une mesure d'économie.
Le service était toutefois cordial et compétent.
Bref, si vous êtes du genre à aimer la bouffe de type fast food, mais dans de la vraie vaisselle, ce resto est pour vous. Autrement, évitez soigneusement.
I went there with my bf for Valentine's day, luckily we had reservations because this place is a hot spot! That night happened to be extra busy because there was a Bon Jovi concert right next door at the Bell Center.
We arrived before our set time for the reservation and were seated pretty quickly. Service was a bit slow considering how packed the place was although it is to be expected.
We ordered cocktails, which were nice and strong, tempura shrimps were deliciously tasty, ribs and filet mignon equally pleasing. Portions are generous, especially if you get fries. My bf was surprised to see he was given an additional 6 ribs to his plate as a bonus.
The only drawback is that they offer an events menu so I'm not sure how extensive the selection of food is or how the prices compare to the regular menu.
They also do not serve any bread basket, which is something that sets other steakhouses apart.
Around 8 pm the crowd died down once everyone left to the concert and it became a much nicer ambiance. Madison's is a pretty big restaurant that's shaped like a huge rectangle without many partitions so it's normally loud...
Once we were done eating, it seemed like we had been forgotten. No one had asked if we wanted dessert and when we wanted to leave, we had to chase another waitress down to get our bill.
Madison's is worth another try, because bottom line, the food is good, prices standard. I do want to go back for their 2 for 22$ special from Sunday-Thursday. We'll just have to figure out which day won't be an "event" to benefit from that deal, which may be kind of hard as there's always something going on at the Bell Center...
