Have been here many times and the food has always been very good. This time it wasn’t good at all...all 3 of us felt the same! Time to move on I guess!

Staff greeted me with a smile, polite conversation. Gave me an option of where to sit, which is not usual for restaurants. lunch menu has good variety, daily special was good as was the great burger. Only disappointment was the small cup of fries that were so hard they broke with a fork piercing.

The new chef is outstanding. Had the 6 course with wine pairing and was hands down one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had. The courses were perfectly planned out and each dish was well balanced for flavor and seasoning. I have been finding that a lot of Edmonton restaurants have been over salting their dishes and trying too hard to knock you out was too man tastes in one dish. Madison’s hit the sweet spot perfectly. My compliments to the chef!

We hadn’t been to Madison’s for a number of years and we were so pleased with our recent evening. The room is so elegant, and the noise level is low - making for easy conversation across the table. The food was brilliant and the service unsurpassed. We can’t wait to celebrate our anniversary dinner there in December.

This is a good choice for a couple on a special event such as an anniversary or birthday. The menu is thoughtful, creative, without being show-off. The service is highly professional, attentive but never obtrusive. The food is first-rate from concept through choice of ingredients and preparation to presentation. This is not a hipster place, it's all about understated elegance, with a menu that matches its ambience.

Dined at this restaurant for years and have loved it. Brand new chef and menu and we won’t be back. The steak was so dry and hard I could barely cut it, served with soggy fries. Another steak was served with an inedible stack of deep fried unidentifiable matter. Poorly done.

This was a "mother's day" celebration dinner for 6 that included a two year old, his parents, and three grandparents. It was also an "announcement party" for the gender of the two year old's first sibling. The parents provided the sealed envelope to our server and asked if they could find a special way to make the announcement after dinner. The chef's "solution" was to prepare a table side home made nitrogen cooled ice cream that when served would announce the gender - pink for a girl and blue for a boy! Charlie will have a younger brother this October who is sure to have a life-long passion for ice cream - well done Madison's Grill. The reservation was early in the evening and the service was attentive and relaxed without having to request it. Not all of the portions were as generous as they might have been for the pricing but everything was well prepared and well presented.

I have been to Madison's Grill on several occasions and have been very happy in the past but this time, less so. First, I made a reservation through OpenTable, I received an e-mail confirmation shortly before leaving my office yet on arrival I found my guest waiting saying he had been told they had no reservation. Luckily it wasn't busy and we got a table.
My second comment relates to my meal, I ordered the Southern Chicken Bites & Cauliflower off the main lunch menu (not the appetizers) and I felt it didn't meet the expectations based on the description on the menu. First, it was very small - there were 5 chicken bites, each about the size of a quarter and 3 tempura cauliflower florets, I would consider this a small appetizer sized portion. The description referred to Pickled Shallots (there were 2 very tiny shavings), Sweet Chili (there was maybe a half teaspoon total on the plate) and Inn Made Peppercorn Ranch (each of the chicken bites had a tiny blob, probably less than a quarter teaspoon). I honestly stopped on my way back to the office to buy something to eat because I was hungry, and that was after $18 for this meal. Don't get me wrong, it was very good, very tasty, but overall a disappointment.
Having said all of this, I will definitely be back, not to order the same meal, but for something else off the menu that I am sure would be exceptional and more satisfying. As a side note, my lunch guest had the fish and chips and very much enjoyed his meal.
Thank you.

Wilted and non-fresh ceasar salad with little dressing and low grade parmesan cheese. It appeared the Romain was from a bag of chopped lettuce! The Beef Wellington was tough and pastry was soggy! Chicken was average with under cooked brussel sprouts! Specifically asked for a special romantic table in my reservation made 5 days earlier. No special table or mention of a special table!

Wrote about our experience to the Union Bank Inn! We were not happy with their response!
