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.

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.

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.

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.
