    Waiter too our food order quickly. Didn't ask what we wanted to drink, had to call her back to order. Had to have the hostess find our waiter to get our food after ordering. Some of the food came cold. Generally food is good. Service is on the slow side.

    This place is so neat! Of course, the Madonna Inn brings a ton of people, so it was very busy. But the hostess, the manager and the rest of the staff worked very hard and kept things as organized as possible regardless of the onslaught of customers and of course, there always has to be at least one group who has to cause trouble in some way... And they handled it with kindness and grace. They sat us at a lovely table, right next to the fireplace. It was also right next to the kitchen, so it was chaotic, but also somehow cozy. Being next to the kitchen wasn't an issue at all for us. Our server was great and as attentive as she could be with amount of tables she had to serve. The food was good and came out exactly as described on the menu. I had the Corned Beef Hash and Poached Eggs, and my fiancè had the Eggs Benedict. The bar made a perfect "Bloody Beer" for me and a beautiful Irish Coffee for him. Overall, it was a great experience!

    I made a reservation and when we got there they told us it would only be a few minutes for them to clear the table. After about 20 minutes or more and I saw them seating people that came in after us, I asked them when I would be seated. They told me they forgot us and we would be seated immediately. It took a while for service, however, our waiter when he finally did take care of us was amazing. It is not his fault they were understaffed and overbooked! Also, I went to the restroom in the cafe to find it was closed for some reason and they told me to use the wine cellar restroom. When I walked over to that restroom, one toilet was out of service so that only left one for a long line of ladies. The food was good, nothing special. However, their cakes are amazing and delicious!!

    I guess we expected it to be very very amazing because of the stories… but food was ok, not the best of anything. Black Forest cake was ok, not anything I’d drive back for. But the hotel itself is amazing! It is like walking into a fantasy world or 100 years ago, very cool!

    Annual brunch. Super busy, make a reservation! Food was fun and tasty. My Rueben was good but not as great as in the past. Husband had hash and loved it. We are locals and visit for special gatherings. Maybe a little understaffed but understandable for these times.

    I was excited to bring my husband here for the first time. They were way overbooked, and short staffed. The staff was trying their best, but they were stretched thin. It took forever to get our food. And after they poured my husband’s coffee we didn’t see anyone, for at least 15 minutes. Needless to say it was chaos on this Sunday morning. The food was decent but they brought us 3 wrong things, I asked for sweet potato fries with aioli, they brought me chili. Finally brought me the fries, and NO aioli. I was almost half done with my fries, I got the aioli the container was a mess and my fries were cold. I asked for a chai latte, they put espresso in it. The floors were a mess, just not the iconic stop it used to be. Things are run down and campy. My advice….just keep driving.

    So we made reservations and didn’t take too long prior to being sat. There was a Truck show going on, parking was awful…. Some of the staff in the cafe and upstairs didn’t even know about it. Took a while to place our order, Alejandro’s was our server. My husbands bacon over cooked, my Belgian wafer so so. Fruit was good and so was toast. Way too many people and the staff was having a hard time keeping up.

    My Pink Champagne birthday cake with Bavarian cream was the lightest and fluffiest cake I've ever had! Shelby made our first visit ever the best one; we will ask for her again. The place is a must see just for the decor. Prices a little high but hey; this place is famous.

    The Madonna Inn is a fantastic place to eat. It is old fashioned and very quaint. We prefer to eat in the steak house, but that is not open during the day. We have not had a meal yet, that is not top rate. A little pricey, but worth the cost. The Cafeteria is loud and conversation is hard to come by comfortably but that is not the fault of the Cafe.

    When we arrived with our confirmation #, the receptionist did not find that we had a reservation, and also said that our confirmation # meant nothing to her - that she never uses them for anything. So the restaurant was fine but the Open Table transaction was dismal. Luckily they were not crowded, so we got seated immediately.
