Diner Reviews
  • "Madison needs a major dose of TLC. Fittings very past sell by date, broken & very worn. The whole place needs a deep clean. The staff were attentive to start with then didn't come back, we had to ask for more water etc etc Staff were not poorly trained, some appeared to have had no training at all. Maître d (the older short bloke, the young guy was nice) was 'officious' behind his desk - I hate that in London, like you should be grateful. Could be a lovely place but just down at heal. Tables should be by the window!!! Couldn't recommend other than for an al fresco drink."

  • "Top standard food, great atmosphere and treated well- even celebratory cake brought out. Highly recommended on a Sunday when the restaurant is much quieter than usual."

  • "Came here for my partners Birthday.... Which they knew about.... After being showed to our table, took them 45 minuets to bring over cocktails, which I did not even order.... Both dinners are brought out at different times.... And when they said about planning something special for my girlfriend... When I paid the £110 bill they just showed us the door. Not impressed at all...... Poor services rushing people in and out.... One star"

  • "Food was actually ok, but the service was awful and we were made to feel unwelcome. They brought our main meals out before we had finished our starters and were expected to just stop eating. Staff were hovering round our table waiting for us to finish and take our plates away. Drinks took a long time to come. I was very dissapointed as I took my parents there for a special occasion and we were left very dissapointed."

  • "would not recommend eating here on a hot day - the air con system is non existent. it pretty much ruined the whole experience."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Wonderful view from balcony which unfortunately isn't really visible from inside if eating, even the bar area doesn't go around to the best view (where you cannot take drinks). Food was ok, nothing compared to Paramount which is more money but in my opinion worth it. Waiting staff also not nearly as helpful or attentive (wine not cold, took ages to get anyone's attention to order or ask questions etc), I understand it was busy but dinner on a Friday in Summer will always be. The heat in the restaurant area was unbearable too, the glass roof lends itself to the greenhouse effect together with a full bar and restaurant creating more heat... I wouldn't go back to eat but certainly to drink."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Our initial drinks didn't arrive and we had to ask twice when they were coming. The food order was wrong and one meal had to be replaced entirely. The wine with the meal wasn't chilled. The waiter only poured two glasses of wine leaving the third empty. The food itself was fine, but then they argued about taking the wrong meal off the bill when the manager had offered to. Oh, and it was the hottest day of the year and there was no air conditioning. The restaurant wasn't busy and there were plenty of staff around so no excuses. It's a great location, no problems with the kitchen itself, and it could be amazing. But they got it all so very wrong."

  • "I went here to celebrate my birthday and had a fantastic time. This place was rammed although if you've booked a table in the restaurant you can skip straight past the queue to the bar. The food was lovely, all prepared beautifully and the service was flawless. The view of St. Paul's was beautiful. Great place to spend a summers evening and would highly recommend for any special occasion! Definitely would go back again."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Great venue with wonderful views of the water on the Barbican. The food was excellent and great value with their lunchtine express menu."

  • "My family and I went to Madison for a meal after my graduation, the service was amazing the waiters were really lovely and they gave me ice cream that said congratulations and mini drinks. Thank you so much for a lovely evening I think we'll be back!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "We did not know what to expect at all and were very pleased by the venue with my girlfriend, the reception staff was very helpful as they hold the table for us to have a drink outside, I gave 4 stars only as the restaurant is very noisy and we could not hear each other, food was delicious and good service!"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "Incredible views, vibrant scene (energetic noise)."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "The views from the rooftop across to St. Paul's Cathedral make this an amazing location; we had dinner in the restaurant on a Friday night - it was like eating in the middle of a serious disco - the music was SO LOUD we could barely make ourselves understood to the staff. This place should focus on cocktails and great views - trying to have a nice dinner was a bit of a joke."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Spectacular view and location.good food. Avarage service. too much confusion."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "The bar/tapas area is perfectly fine and the view is great. Our mistake was going to the restaurant. The food was distinctly average and the acoustics are appalling so the noise from other diners/drinkers was overwhelming. The nadir of the evening was a waiter spilling a large glass of white wine over the diner next to us. He was drenched, the wine covered over his face, went in his eyes, down his shirt, and into his lap. Then, about 1/2 hour later, another waiter knocked a tall fruit cocktail over on the table on the other side, showering the table and the seat. We became distinctly nervous about any waiter coming anywhere near us. And then the DJ started. We left. I would not recommend this place."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "The outdoor terrace is huge and offers good views of St Paul's form the outdoor bar. You would think that in a place like this, the same would apply to the restaurant itself, but this was not the case, the outlook form the seating area is very limited. Despite the fact that we had to book a dinner table a full two weeks in advance, more than half of the dining area was let to some corporate after-work and as a result, the restaurant was extreemely noisy to a level where no normal talk could be conducted either at the table or with the waiting staff. In all, a badly disappointing dining experience; we won't be coming back. An outdoor bar might be worth a try, but that does not require a booking."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant from the service to the food quality. In addition, the restaurant is placed on the rooftop and has an amazing view of St.Pauls. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "I had a very nice meal. The food was fantastic, view exceptional and the service matched. Would recommend eating here."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "On a summers evening great place to go for a drink. Great view of St Pauls Cathedral. However, the food wasn't great."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "I really like Madison. It has a lovely view and we had a great bottle of wine that wasn't too overpriced. They were even playing the World Cup! I would definitely visit again."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "I wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday and ordered a cake to be delivered to the restaurant. First they wanted to charge an extra £14 for bringing our own dessert. After we ate, they couldn't find the cake and never told me this. We ordered dessert (I assumed they'd bring my cake instead!) and wrote happy birthday on my plate and not my husband's. They found my cake after I went to speak w someone (meanwhile another waiter gave my husband a stage wink thinking it was my b-day still). They insisted on bringing the cake out to show my husband after the surprise was ruined. It was awful and cringeworthy. Also, the food is average and it's extremely noisy. We were given the worst table in the whole place, right by the door."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Just a very unique restaurant , nice staff including security."
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "Great ambient and amazing view of st. Paul's. Music was really good! We had a wonderful sunday lunch!"
    dined on 06/07/2014
  • "Quick fast service .. Food was amazing , recommend the fish and chips"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "My partner and I had a wonderful meal for his 30th birthday, the staff were attentive and we felt like it was an occasion. The staff brought us complimentary drinks to celebrate and dessert came with a fantastic happy birthday message and very large indoor sparkler. While Madison is a wonderful place to visit, I do think the food is slightly over priced and quite plain to taste."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "It was a bad decision for me to have a couple's birthday dinner here on a Friday night-very bad decision!!!! The food was ok and as expected but I was hoping for a seat with a nice view.haha.Getting up to the restaruant with a booking was a horrible experience-the lady with the clipboard let us in but then a secruityguard was being very unpleasant and saying 'oi' prodding me.The Madison was very busy and noisy and that didn't bother me as the football was on however too many people meant a 20 minute queue for the toilet-that felt like a dodgy nightclub. Because I knew I couldn't use the toilet I had one drink with dinner and left. It wasn't fun and we wasted our money."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Madison is excellent for a wow factor, especially if the weather is good as the views are great. I think it's the best restaurant I have ever been to for service too - very attentive but at the same time you don't feel like your waiter is part of your group! Food was great and good value for money, good portion sizes and really tasty!"
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Really lovely atmosphere. Even though it was for dinner and there was a house dj, this did not kill the ambiance. The service was excellent. Our food came at a substantial time, cocktails were great! And desert was divine. With the amazing view of St Paul's- you really can't go wrong. Only bad thing I would say is the queue for the lift to get up there is pretty long, but if you have a reservation you can cut in front"
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Lovely place to have a few drinks. Food was ok, nothing special however pleasant. Service very slow but the atmosphere and good cocktails made up for it. Expensive so would recommend for a special occasion."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Very good - hugely appreciated the complimentary dessert gesture for my colleague's retirement. Great view/ambiance and delicious food! Service excellent!!!!"
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "I have visited Madison's on previous occasion and it was amazing then. this trip was no exception , excellent service, even though it was packed and we had finished our meal, we wanted to have dessert outside overlooking St Pauls. Our Maître d found us a nice spot to do so, excellent service. the TV screen to watch Wimbledon outside was an extra touch . I can recommend the Lobster tart :)"
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "I felt that the service was rushed and felt pressurised to order food. The waiters tried hard to upsell my order.I did not feel comfortable with the service.Due to the pressurised upsell I ended up with more food than I wanted, therefore paying much more for something than I needed."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "I love this place, we went for the first time but was unbelievable the view of st paul and London , the food was amazing all prepared with accuracy of details , especially in the service that we receive they really take care of the client. I will go for sure very soon , was the best experience in London and I think is one of the best restaurant in the city."
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "Went there for a business lunch and it took an hour and a half to have one course. We asked for bread and we're given three rolls for five people! Our drinks came in two waves with a ten minute gap in between, and when we tried to get the bill, our waiter seemed to avoid all eye contact for ages, even though he only had four tables to manage, all of which had finished their meals, so would have been looking to pay. Won't be rushing back."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "Loud party atmosphere. Not suitable for romantic dinner or anyone over the age of 35 who is looking for a relaxing evening! Tables crammed in beside each other Nice view of St Paul's and good outdoor space."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "I have never received such on the ball service, without even asking water was poured in out glasses constantly, the food was served with decent time intervals and all the staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend!"
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "When booking Madison I was a bit concerned after reading a few bad reviews, but I could not have been more pleased with everything. The staff where all extremely polite and welcoming and went the extra mile to ensure we had a fantastic dining experience. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and they really did ensure she had a wonderful evening. The food was excellent and I highly recommend the lamb. If you are looking for a vibrant and exciting place to dine in London, I could not recommend a better restaurant. I only wish we didn't have to rush off the the theater so we could have enjoyed the facilities further throughout the evening."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Overall this place had a lot of potential, but lacking some general service that you'd expect with its location - maybe that's why they think they can get away with the service. They messed up our booking after being contacted several times by phone & email to confirm my booking on the terrace, they didn't have a table reserved for us & requested we ate first at 545pm rather than have a drink. Strange that they have no way to protect the outdoor seating from getting wet from the rain, but still expect you to sit on wet seating. I would go back, but as I wasn't able to eat there as planned I can't comment on the food."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "It was my mum's birthday and everyone made a special fuss of her, which really made a difference. Spectacular views and a nice buzz about the place. Would definitely come back!"
