A word from Madison
Six floors up, overlooking the Iconic London Skyline, is a venue like no other. Madison Rooftop restaurant, cocktail and tapas bar, is one of Europe's largest and most memorable roof top destinations.
The elevated atmosphere, looking out onto the Dome of St Pauls, offers an all day European menu, accommodating across all parts of the venue.
Tantalising tapas, classic cuts of Herefordshire sirloin steak, right through to line caught tuna and Scottish salmon.
As London goes from day to night, and night to day, the view stands still.
Whilst the menus seasonally change and the bespoke Cocktail creations, are served all year round, reflecting the best premium ingredients available.
Take the journey and discover the sixth floor sensation that is Madison.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went there for the girlfriends birthday, service was outstanding and the food was lovely too. The staff helped to Make it one to remember!"
    dined on 29/08/2014
  • "I booked a table for me and my friend as it was her birthday, the food was great and the service was fantastic, the waiter asked if it was a special occasion, which we replied yes and when we were ordering our dessert my friend received a birthday dessert treat and the waiter sung happy birthday, a perfect touch when you weren't expecting anything, fantastic place and very friendly service"
    dined on 27/08/2014
  • "The location was stunning and the restaurant was beautiful. The service was poor and the food was ok but we felt it wasn't up to scratch for the money."
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "Was looking forward to a good meal with a great view. Unfortunately I could barely hear my friend thanks to the din in there. And this was a Wednesday evening, not even the weekend! Service was disappointing, they took almost 20 minutes to take our order and the food was small in quantity and wasn't that amazing. The dessert was good though. All in all, would recommend for drinks with friends, but not for a nice chilled meal."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Very trendy City bar. Lovely views of St. Pauls. Evening Standard menu was good value. Service was excellent. Great place for girls night out and rooftop entertaining."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Had lunch there. food and service good but not good enough to rush back. Sterile environment - did not feel it would be the place for a long and leisurely lunch."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Welcoming, warm and attentive service from start to finish, despite some of the less than kind reviews I had read. Food fresh and well presented. Views are stunning! Very busy place but we were not rushed at all. Made my daughter's birthday lunch very special. We are looking forward to our next visit already"
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "The food was very average for the price being charged. The redeeming aspects of the restaurant were the views, the attentive service (who were not too pompous as in other similar restaurants), and the general ambiance. I would definitely recommend Madison, but perhaps just for drinks and tapas. Or, if you don't mind paying a rather hefty price simply for the views, then this is a must-go place also."
    dined on 18/08/2014
  • "12.15 booking on a Friday, quite empty but soon got busy with the lunch crowd. Music choice a bit odd (80s-ish power-funk, not really conducive to setting)and too loud initially. Calmed down a bit and was much more condusive to eating! Had some tapas (fresh, tasty and swift to come out) with a glass of lovely prosecco. Then some dessert with coffee - really good. Had the sofas with great views and the service was great, very friendly and helpful. Would certainly come back for other food, pricey but not bad for the city - you could do a lot worse. Would bring people here for drinks and light bites, and would consider an evening meal midweek. Could certainly see if busy might not appeal for anything more than a few beers with mates. Enjoyed."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "Lively atmosphere with a great DJ. Amazing food. Loved it."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Thank you for making my husbands birthday amazing! Nothing was too much trouble for Alex and his team. Drinks, food and view were incredible! Would highly recommend and will see you on our next trip to London!"
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "Very crowded and noisy but the food was great and service was friendly and attentive. Did get ice dropped on me with no apology when a staff member dropped some glasses of water but didn't affect the evening. Used the ES offer so was good value but comp glasses of wine were miniscule (probably because they used bigger glasses). Smoked chicken caesar salad was outstanding, as was the flat iron steak, fries were overdone though. Double chocolate brownie was delicious! All in all a very pleasant meal with amazing view of St Paul's which is clearly the draw."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "Great view and lots of outdoor space. So great when the weather is good, but then this is England. Great view when having drinks. Small dinning area but does not have a view. Can be very loud. So may not be good for a romance evening or talking business. Come for the drinks and view, in good weather. Dinner was very good value and food was wonderful. Service was great and lots of sparkles for special occasions and even a singing waiter."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "Took a client for lunch - a little noisy but quietened a bit as we stayed for a slightly longer lunch! Good servce, good food (although not that many veggie options) - would come again."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Madison is a lovely venue and serves very nice, well cooked food, however, when we went, it was, understandably, busy being a Saturday but also very noisy. There is nothing, really, the venue can do about this. The prices are quite expensive, but again, for locals this is likely to be acceptable. The clientele seems to be mostly wealthy business people from the city, which there is nothing wrong with, but being country bumpkins, we felt a bit inferior. Our issue, nothing more. Again, this is no reflection on the actual restaurant, more an observation which contributes to the ambience. Overall, good place, nice food, good service and, if you've got the cash and want to see how the big city folk relax, go for it. You won't be let down."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Went for a meal with a few friends, had an amazing time. Very good ambience, excellent food and drinks and generally a good vibe."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "The service was excellent & very helpful & attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant is lively & a DJ on the Friday night does make it very loud so not very conducive for an intimate conversation but great fun with friends. Food is good. Great for a pre dinner drink on a sunny night as you can drink on the outside terrace. If you have a reservation you don't have to queue to get up to the restaurant & bar which after 6 on a Friday is advisable."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Went with my husband on a Friday night for our wedding anniversary, only to realise that this was more like a nightclub and not really suitable for a romantic dinner, or in fact any dinner where people actually want to talk to each other. The food was ok and the service very good, got served quickly (only the drinks took a while) and even got a free small aperitif for the occasion. But I would not recommend this for dinner when the DJ is on, and it should be made a little clearer on their website what people should expect on those nights. The music and general noise level were much too loud and when it started to rain the whole crowd from the roof terrace descended into the restaurant almost squashing the couple sitting next to the door."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Outstanding views, Lovely Meal, and great atmosphere"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "lovely food and great attentive staff. will definately return."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "I had gone to celebrate my fiancés birthday which she was really excited about as it was a reminisce of our first date, however we thought we'd try the food too, the bar was great, has a good selection of wines, service was fantastic, we were asked if we'd like drinks prior to being taken to our reserved tables, drinks was recommended. However there is a huge lack of vegetarian options which was unbelievable, chips and salad was practically the only decent items on the menu. Very disappointed with this"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Waitress service was good but food took Over an hour!"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "I've been at Madison last week on a thursday night. As soon as we arrived and we saw the location we were incredibly happy to be there. We went to check in to our table that was booked for 9.15 pm and after half hour we were still waiting for it and no one was really interested on us. We went for a drink at the bar and all of the staff were quiet unproffessional and slow, serving girls before other people without even considering the queue. At the end when we were finally at our table the waitress and food was the only good thing during all night. Great place but not enough good staff working there!"
    dined on 07/08/2014
  • "there some tables nearest to the bar ,,,and some times for example break glasses or plats near the costumers,,,anything else"
    dined on 05/08/2014
  • "This is a lovely spot - outside and inside look nice, and the views are stunning. The staff was very welcoming and we were not charged for coffee as it took a while to arrive. The food was nice (I expected it to be overpriced for poor quality but it was fair). Stylish venue. I imagine this place is best for lunchtime and after-work drinks on a nice day."
    dined on 05/08/2014
  • "The place as a cocktail bar is beautiful but as a restaurant they really need to improve a few key areas as: - It's too loud for a restaurant. You have to shout all the time to hear each other, which is quite uncomfortable -Service. They served our food at least fifteen minutes before they brought the wine we had ordered. Also, they left our bottle next to other table so we didn't know what it was afterwards. That's not what you expect of an expensive restaurant - Overpriced. Dishes are expensive and quite small quantities. £12 each starter and it's literally two bites. Not great value for money."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "The food was great. They had more than enough waiters but the service was poor. We were waiting more than 30mins for the waiter to come and ask if we wanted some dessert... Which we did but after 30 mins awaiting we lost appetite and had to call a waiter to at least get the bill. Next time will go just for cocktails and the views..."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "One of the finest burger's I have eaten also given a choice of how it was cooked. Prepared and presented perfectly, I would recommend this restaurant to all."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "I am a Madison regular and they never disappoint! The service was outstanding, the food was brilliant and the atmosphere was very relaxed! I loved it! I look forward to my next visit!"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "Service was great, and the views are amazing. But the food was really really poor in quality."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "dont waste your time booking a meal here, they should stick to the club theme and avoid disappointment"
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Madison cuisine was good but without any sparkles. However the view is amazing, absolutely worth it for having drinks in a terrace after dinner!"
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "The experience we had at Madison was average. The food was nice but nothing to write home about and the service seemed a bit lacking, they were very disorganised when we arrived and completely forgot us after they ushered us over to the mobbed bar within the restaurant. I expected from the prices that Madison would have been run like a well oiled machine but really it just seemed to be overwhelmed. Very disappointing and more than likely won't return."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Lovely place and great view over London and I do enjoy music whilst eating but making the restaurants bar available for people who aren't dining is just a bad idea. It gets too loud so you have to shout to be able to communicate at dinner. The music is loud enough so they shouldn't let people stand by the bar drinking and talking. It ruins the atmosphere . Also, massive place, a huge amount if people and only two toilets available with big queues ..."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "Overcrowded, noisy, disorganised, slow service, like dining in a night club."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "Had a great evening watching the sun set with a glass of wine while listening to some dance beats. Really lovely food and really attentive waiters."
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "Excellent location, inside a shopping centre overlooking St Pauls. The food was lovely and brilliant service. However it is not the cheapest option. I would definitely go back"
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "I really enjoyed Madison. The ambience and the outside views are spectacular. The service is amazing too, I was always in good care. The food is delicious but the menus is quite limited."
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "It was the perfect lunch in the perfect location in London. Food was delicious and the service too. In particular we appreciated one of the waiters, the one with dark hair, tall who looks like a spanish guy. Thank you Madison ;)"
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "I had been wanting to try Madison's for ages and booked a table for my birthday lunch. The views are stunning of St.Pauls and the food was very good but the service was appalling. We had to wait an hour after finishing our main to order dessert and was 45 minutes without a drink. It was only half full and they had plenty of staff on but unfortunately they seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves then serving. Clientele was also bizarre. Business and people celebrating inside and people snogging and getting drunk outside. I won't be going back."
