They staff made us feel very special as soon as we arrived. We received a card to congratulate us on our anniversary. We even received a complimentary dessert to celebrate our special occasion.

Overall, it was an amazing first time experience at the Madison!

I would recommend Madison more for a friday nihgts drinks venue rather than somehwere to go a dinner. The music was too loud and I couldnt chat over dinner once the singer/band kicked in.

Madisons restaurant from the moment you enter the lift is very welcoming and sophisticated. The service was great and they made such an effort knowing it was our anniversary which was so kind thank you! It was a Saturday night and there was a DJ who was great, great atmosphere also. The food 5* for sure! Will defiantly be back so thank you.

Far too noisy for me!! Like having dinner in a night club!!
I have been to Madison several times before and always enjoyed it. However, they seem to have changed their policy on music. Maybe I am just too old for it. 58.
The food was good and the views spectacular. But I struggled to hear what my dining companion was saying.

Dear Sir/Madam

I had dinner bookings at Madison multiple times , it was one of my favourite places for first dates..

This particular evening the place wasn’t that busy and when shown to my table I politely asked if i could have another table as I prefer not to be seated on the main walking path.. The lady replied no, this is your table. However there were plenty spare tables and i could not understand why no, as this was not an availability issue.

Funny enough I went to Roka on Saturday (downstairs area) and they were more than happy to accommodate my seating preference.

I fee like STK, Roka, Nobu will be my preferred choices going forward.

Kind regards

Ronaldas

The food and atmosphere was great and it’s always a lovely evening at Madison! However the service was very rude. We had to ask to order our drinks, we were not seen to straight away and as a result when they came to take our order we were told we can’t order starter! Luckily we didn’t want any and just wanted to start with mains. After this we were given the bill and told to pay up and get up from the table! We really wanted dessert so asked if we could order it and eat it quickly and then leave. They said no! eventually We were allowed to order it and eat it in 15 mins but only if we don’t order the chocolate fondant as that takes 10 mins in the oven. So we ordered alternatives got up and went to the bar only to see the table still being vacant for another 20 mins. As a result we couldn’t order the dessert we wanted and were rushed off the table! Otherwise the food was great just shame on the service.

Good food and service, location is of course great, only negatives was a large corporate event of 70 odd people against the windows and therefore blocking the view and changing the atmosphere of the restaurant. Nice touches to acknowledge the birthday, card and sorbet a surprise, or would have been if the table next to us weren’t also celebrating a birthday and were 20 mins a ahead of us. Drinks are expensive but you know that. Overall a great night.

Love the views here, amazing. Big fan of lunch, first time for dinner. Disappointed unfortunately. Waiters got are food mixed up, burnt one steak, left another uncooked (wrong way around). Cleared each persons plate as they finished, felt extremely rushed. Starters just average. Maybe just a bad day for the staff as usual a good spot.

Everything besides service was good. The food great, the place itself. Although the area was half empty and we could have been seated almost anywhere, the choice of the table was weird, somewhere in the middle with no view. We had to wait for a long time to be noticed anyone and be able to make an order.

Great venue, great views of London. Was expecting a bit more from the food for the price. Service was slow but we didnt mind as we weren't in a hurry. Good atmosphere. We knew there would be a DJ but the music was mainly house and extremely loud. Would have preferred slightly more variety in music . Overall anlovely evening

Wonderful location and amazing people. Good food quality in particular meat. The only con for me is the music that is a little bit loud, but it is only a matter of personal preference.

Our starters were first class we had the quinoa and also beetroot starters. Mains of fish & chips and can’t even remember what my aunt had were just ok. We would normally have a dessert, but nothing in the menu appealed.
Our waiter was first class, if had a restaurant I’d want to employ wait staff like him!

I would expect a bit more attention on the service for the price. Such as making sure we have wine in the glass when it’s getting low and not being asked 3 times about food allergies : on a confirmation call the afternoon before dinner, when we are brought to the table and by the waiter before taking the order. I appreciate the attention but 3 times is a bit much. Just being asked once prior and confirmation by the waiter prior to taking the order “I have here that you have beetroot allergy and really dislike coriander. Is it correct ? Rest assured we will pay special attention in the kitchen about this “.
