Special occasion dinner on Saturday afternoon with 4 Friends. Good wine list and food was good, had great service and lively music playing on the terrace. Would go again.

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.

The food was nice, but it's too hot on a really hot day even out on the terrace. The music is too loud for a business meeting, which is a big downside, given the location. The view is nice.

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.

Amazing view, food was tasty yet the menu was simple and catered to a lot of "comfort food" the service in the bar area was terrible and it took over 30 mins to be served drinks pre dinner.

We were not offered to seat outside on arrival. We requested this to the waiter and he responded: "we don't serve food outside". We could see people eating outside so we enquired with the hostess to seat us outside. She said: "you will be too hot; the table is too low." We explained we are willing to be hot and that they had both low and high tables but we would like the option, which they waiter denied us. She said: "sorry about that, he is new. We can seat you outside but you need to tell me what do you want?". We reiterated that we wanted to seat outside. They moved us. After the starter arrived, we waited 45 minutes for our main course. When we highlighted this issue, they apologised and offered a couple of free drinks, which never arrived. If it wasn't for Natalia (and the chef - as the food was good), who gave us the attention and care that customers deserve, we wouldn't come back. We may go back but not for a business meal.

We sat inside, which was way too noisy, as the bar area is not separated in any way from the dining area, and the acoustics are terrible! Food was average, service average. All in all a disappointment on the day. I wouldn't eat here again. Outside drinks on the terrace, probably. But that's it. The inside totally lacks atmosphere, interior designer should have been fired.

Came here via a list of many rooftop bars and definitely didn't disappoint us. Group of two of us late twenties, evening view nice across London in the sun would be much better. No bad words to say!! Recommended for those spending 100+ on dinner and drinks for two

Service was ok, but even if the restaurant was almost empty they didn’t ask if we have any preferences for the table. Glasses of wine had residues of cotton wipes used to dry them and the wine levels was very different in the 2 glasses they served to us. They managed to make a disgusting buffalo mozzarella with tomatoes, but quinoa and chicken was very good. They view as well is amazing, and it’s nice to chill and have a drink on the terrace as well. I will go back but just for a drink, restaurant didn’t impress me at all.

Came with a friend for Sunday lunch. It was her first time in Madison and she was simply impressed! The food was delicious, perfect flavour combinations. Excellent wine recommendation and superb service. I have not been to any other restaurant where I would’ve been looked after so well! We then ended our evening with a cocktail on their terrace, simply enjoying the music and admiring the views. Well worth visiting.

I booked in a lunch session to celebrate a friend's birthday. I was a bit apprehensive taking my 6 month baby there as it seemed quite an upmarket place. However the staff were amazing! They were really helpful and accomodating with the little one. We got a highchair and a lovely fluffy cushion to make it more comfortable. Staff were also very attentive and polite to us. They did not rush us and we even got free prosseco at the end! We went for the lunch deal and the food was delicious! They wrote a very thoughtful card for my friend to wish her happy birthday from the Madison Team. The views of St Paul's, the Shard etc are STUNNING from this roof top! This is a great place for couples, families, friends as well as business luncheons. I would definitely book here again but this time for dinner with my hubby and without little one :)

Madison is fine for lunch, good fixed price deal-£20 for 2 courses (and a thimbleful of wine!).
Duck burger was ok on the dry side (strange given the fattiness if duck). Fish pie was tasty and slightly curried. Chicken was standard.
The room is so so so noisy. Do not visit if you want a quiet chat. Avoid completely if you’re going with romance in mind!
