London's famous rooftop bar and restaurant, Madison was named as the capital's second most-Instagrammed spot, and it's no surprise when you take a look at its incredible view across the dome of St Paul's Cathedral. It serves great food and cracking cocktails and is the ideal place for a celebration, whether that's a birthday or just a Friday...

Great venue, nice and buzzy and the service was attentive. My only gripe is that the tables are too close together, which gave the overly friendly American couple on the table next to us, the idea that they should speak to me and my friend throughout our meal. Otherwise great and would recommend.

My friend and I had a lovely time in Madison last Saturday. We arrived at 1.30pm it was very busy on the rooftop and where we were sat inside. However by 2.30pm it had calmed down abs was a very relaxing and nice atmosphere. Great views of the city and the rooftop felt like a lazy afternoon in Ibiza!

The food was delicious too. We chose from the set menu. We both had salmon to start and the pork as a main with a glass of red wine. Delicious filling food, well presented and good value for money.

It was good in general. Only thing is when we arrived, the reception asked whether we want to have a drink first, and we went for one drink. We were right outside, and then when we came back, apparently our booking was cancelled because they thought we weren’t there. A bit strange, we were like 5 meters away. I thought there must be a mark made but didn’t. I am waiting to make sure they won’t charge me 50 quid of cancellation fee. I think it’s avoidable.

Although I had made a reservation for 5 people, when we got to the venue we were given a 4 seater table with the 5th chair squeezed on at the end.

I was served a roast chicken lunch that had not been properly cooked throughout.

The staff didn’t seem at all phased by the fact that I had been served raw chicken and I had to ask for this to be removed from my bill.

I won’t be rushing back.

The most amazing views - we went at 6.30 pm and so we saw it in the light and in the dark = fantastic. Food was very good (set menu was very good value). Only minor gripe would be the service - they seemed to be rushing us at times. However overall highly recommended.

The bass fillet was amazing and I could have eaten the sides of chorizo potatoes and mushrooms on their own as they were so tasty. Lovely wine selections to accompany our dishes (we had 2 bottles lol). Really lovely staff, service was friendly and professional. I highly recommend the restaurant and will definitely be back.

An excellent restaurant. Good ambiance. Food was really good but not quite 5 star. I ordered the pork sirloin and my guest had the venison, both were really impressively presented.
A great setting and views of At Paul's cathedral and the River Thames.

Great food. Great views. Service initially good, but let down as I ordered wine as part of a set menu and want told it was not included - afterwards got a larger bill than expected: which took a while to arrive. When I complained I was not offered anything other than a sympathetic apology and the two glasses that would have been included to drink on my own - not suitable for a working lunch! So I would recommend on food and views but overall a little disappointed at how my complaint was handled.

This restaurant is great on a sunny day, given its opening onto the terrace and views over the city. Food was good on this occasion for a light business lunch, but would have been equally good for something fuller (as it has been on numerous other occasions for me).

Great food, great drinks, and a great location. Makes for a great place to have something to eat before moving outside to enjoy drinks in the sun! I spent hours there and enjoyed every moment. The outside service is good and I feel the price is quite reasonable!

Would highly recommend Madison.

I don’t write reviews as a general rule but I have to say - bloody awful:
- Starters were half decent but very over priced (only plus point).
- We could barely hear each other talking such was the volume
- never a venue for a business situation
- first meat totally over cooked and replaced with another piece of meet that was equally devoid of moisture - diabolical.
- to the tall waiter with dark hair (I wasn’t trying to do you a favour by being there)
- sorbet was basically straight out of a tub and pure sugar

It’s a decent place for a summers evening and some cocktails/drinks - lovely views and a nice vibe on the terrace. Just don’t eat there.

Amazing views of St Pauls and we enjoyed our evening. The restaurant was rather too noisy for us. it was impossible to talk to each other but overall an experience. Very glad we had a reservation otherwise it may have been difficult to get in or sit down. Lovely cocktails. Nice touch at the end of our meal with a Congratulations plate with sorbet for our daughter who was celebrating her graduation.

It was a pleasant evening. Attentive, friendly wait staff - not pushy. Tasty food.

We informed them at time of booking of birthday celebration - no time at any point was this acknowledged or referenced. :(
Music was far too loud for any intimacy.

I've been to this restaurant before, and its been ok. This time not so much. From the snotty call prior to attending to 'remind me the dress code was smart casual'?! Clearly I have a name that looks like I might not adhere to dress codes, I can only assume. Tbh having arrived to see numerous individuals in sports shorts, and trainers there is clearly no dress code to speak of.
Smallest portion of eggs benedict I've ever encountered.....c.£14 for it too. Poor value that they should have been embarrassed to serve. The taste, and quality was fine. The view is great, just not sure its enough to make up for the attitude, tiny portions and cost.

Madison's location is one of the best ones in London, but the food and service in the restaurant are not of that same standards. The food was just OK and the service not great. I would definitely recommend the place for a drink though, especially in the summer time.
