Loved the comfy chairs and quiet atmosphere. Food was delicious although Brioche bun on breakfast sandwich was a bit greasy. Cost and service were both good. Will definitely go back to try dinner menu sometime.

A Classic.

Dined on March 20, 2016

Madison's Grill is a classic restaurant with an atmosphere to match. We visited during Downtown Dining week. Very well prepared food and thoughtful ingredients in some unique dishes. Mushroom croquettes - absolutely delicious. Pork cheek perogies - a different take on a very traditional dish - also delicious. Duo of beef - shortrib and tenderloin - both done to perfection. Salted Caramel Creme - a melt in your mouth, eat this very slowly to savor the flavors.

Has potential

Dined on March 18, 2016

My family and myself took advantage of the downtown dining special. Overall the meals were very good, with only a few small complaints. We found the drink menu to be very expensive. Cocktails on average were running $13 and up. Wine list was not outstanding and was very pricey.

Could have been so much better

Dined on March 16, 2016

Food was good, no complaints there. Host seated me right away as well, no complaints as well there. Service was my main issue, waiter was curt assumed we were going for the dining week menu and overall sub par for this level of restaurant. Was a bit embarrassed because I told my dining mate that the service here was good from previous experience.

Enjoyable Downtown Dining Experience

Dined on March 13, 2016

I went to Madison's Grill during Downtown Dining Week 2016 with a friend who was vising from Calgary. We were treated well by the staff and enjoyed our meal. The portion size of the caramel pot de creme was enormous and it was one of the best restaurant desserts I've ever had. The roasted vegetable ravioli was nice enough but not worth the $34 price tag as the dough to filling ratio was way off. I am a vegetarian and would not recommend it to other vegetarians as there are very few meatless offerings. Vegans wouldn't stand a chance here. My meat-eating friend enjoyed the DDW menu. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend for small groups or couples.

Special Occasion Dining

Dined on March 11, 2016

We went for downtown dining week, three of us. One dish was markedly better than the other, mine was eye-wateringly salty but once paired with the creamy risotto, still delicious. Dessert was delicious and my table mates will rave about the appetizer, a pair of fancy perogies, until the end of time! All in all I would definitely go back to madison's for a special occasion. Cost wise it was quite expensive so not ideal for regular dining.

Once you enter Madison's Grill, you can feel yourself relaxing instantly and looking forward to a leisurely, delicious meal. The 3 -course tasting meal was excellent. We enjoy seeing what the chef and staff will prepare for you and the surprise was worth yet. I really enjoyed the whole experience.

Such a wonderful evening!!

Dined on March 7, 2016

We spent a fantastic evening, celebrating a Birthday in grand style at Madison's grill. It was our first time to this beautiful restaurant and every moment was so lovely. The Madison's greens salad was generous and full of flavour. The filet was done perfectly with an appropriate portion of veg and potatoes. Having a dessert was a task due to the filling appetizer and entree' but so well worth the effort - cheesecake. Our server was professional and friendly. We truly felt like old friends being welcomed back to a family home. We lingered for a long while because it was such a great evening. Next Birthday is in April and we will be going back for that.

Elegant Evening

Dined on February 20, 2016

A lovely evening was had, as we celebrated my father's birthday. We were met by the welcoming staff, who put us at ease immediately. I, myself, was quite late arriving (20minutes, to be precise), but the staff could not have been more forgiving. Our dining choices ran the gamut from seafood to vegetarian to fowl (duck) to beef. To a person we were all pleased with our selections and enjoyed a most delicious meal! Appetizers and desserts were also excellent , and the crowning touch was a candle with Dad's dessert. Our wine selection, from the limited yet comprehensive list, complemented the meal beautifully. Our server, Brett, was pleasant and helpful, yet professional, and we were most grateful for his attention. The ambience of Madison's Grill, with its high ceiling and old world charm, not to mention it's working fireplace, makes it perfect for a special occasion. Definitely a favourite place of ours!

Disappointing Valentines Dinner

Dined on February 15, 2016

We have been to Madisons Grill multiple times. We come back because there is consistently good service and a great ambiance. Usually there is also good food. Given the price point of $100 per person, I was expecting a high end experience with great quality courses. Our courses were consistently disappointing. I am not sure what they were thinking with the consomme they served but it was a swing and miss. Everything was so very ordinary and nothing special in flavours or creativity. If you are having a $20 special, fine but you are charging $100 each implying you are going to put the effort in and in this case, you definitely didnt. After several good experiences, this one was so significantly off that I dont think we will go back.

Dined on February 14, 2016

Very went on Valentine's Day with two other couples and had our own room, which was great for conversation. The service was extremely good, too. The food was another story - not bad, but not worthy the $200 we paid. My wife really enjoyed her sea bass, but my steak was so-so. I've had much better for far less money. We paid over $200 for a $70 meal. I don't think I'll be back. For less money I could have had an outstanding meal with better ambience at the Red Ox Inn.

Happy foursome.

Dined on January 25, 2016

Though we enjoyed a wonderful evening 3 small details might \go a long way to improve \our overall experience. 1- not one vehicle was parked in the hotel parking lot, we were told in no uncertain terms we were not to park there. We have been frequent guests at the hotel and your restaurant. 2- we selected a different dessert to share and your waiter suggested another thinking we would enjoy it better. He brought a small dessert to the table, 3 of us had a small bite and dermined it tasted stale, old. Disappointing given our superb experiences in the past. 3- without a fault, our waiter was efficient, however he appeared to NOT want to be working this evening to the point we felt un comfortable. We were a table of 4 very successful clients enjoying a light fun evening together.

worst meal ever!

Dined on December 13, 2015

I booked the restaurant for a group of friends. All of us had been there previously so were expecting good things. We were all very disappointed. It took over 1 hour for the waiter to take our food order. When I expressed concern to the maitre d' he said he'd talk to the waiter but did nothing else for us. Then my meal came: worst I have ever had. Duck breast with a pink sauce accompanied by two mushy crepes filled with mashed yams. All topped with (Canned?) cranberry sauce. The waiter did replace the meal and I mistakenly chose the fish - for $49 . It was fine but not worth the price. One of my companions meals included dry salmon over greens (she didn't eat it) This is a beautiful room and should have good service and food!

Dined on December 6, 2015

My wife and I went for a nice romantic dinner and were not disappointed. Our server was absolutely superb without excessive lingering. The food was tasty, but was really the weak point of the evening. Wine list had something for everyone with good selection, however, our first choice was sold out. We'll give them another chance to impress us with the food next time.
