"We went to celebrate a special occasion and splurge and were not disappointed in terms of food and ambiance. The hostess who seated us was very nice but then we had the misfortune of being seated at a section where the waiter seemed ambivalent, fake and often deliberately ignored us. I know that this is not common as we had an amazing waiter the previous time."

"I have not been to Madera for lunch in some time but was surprised to find the lunch menu just as expensive as the dinner menu for less food!
The price range was from $27 - $33 dollars for a lunch entre.
I had the scallops which were $31 and I got about 6 quarter inch by quarter inch scallops with some vegetables. I was genuinely hungry after. I also had an appetizer for approx $20 which was octopus. The food was very good just not enough. We had to order a side of french fries and dessert to just get full.
The portions are too small for the price, I would have to second think going back as after paying over $50 and not being full there is clearly some thing wrong here..

"The food is excellently prepared, the service is impeccable. If you sit outside the view is great.
But don't expect large portions. My day boat scallop lunch for $31 had two scallops.

"Been here a few times, lunch and brunch are fine, this was the worst.
Came in for dinner, had to adjust reservation, group size twice - Hostess was very accommodating.
Restaurant is very loud when busy - it was full.
The beautiful hardwood surfaces, little soft material, make for a loud atmosphere - I would not suggest a romantic dinner.
Food was creative and good, but not outstanding, had Petrale sole, cauliflower soup and some fois gras - the fois was the best and least complex.
Tried stinging nettle gnocchi a friend had, was not impressed, too soft and strong simple flavor, no complexity.
Did not compare with a any Michelin star rated place I've been, and was not as good as last year.
Service was way below expectations for a place of this caliber - server was all over the place, too busy or not paying attention, ran out of water several times, wine orders took a very long time, even by the glass. We had a bottle of champagne to start, 15 minutes to fetch.
Our first courses arrived all willy nilly.
One guy got his truffle custard which goes in the soup, but no soup, another dish showed up, a bit later my custard and soup simultaneously, mentioned the missing soup, runner left confused, a few minutes later, a salad arrived, tried to mention the missing liquid, the runner ran off, last gnocchi arrived, still no soup for the first guy, we yelled for attention (to get over the ambient noise), the soup part was picked up and brought over, with no apology.
The waiter asked about wine, pointed out waters being empty, said we would order wine with the mains, he never comes back until mid-way through the main, attempting to get attention of anyone throughout the courses, or between was difficult.
Ordered some wine by the glass, hoping to get it quickly, took 10 minutes.
Attempting to find anyone to bring the check was also difficult.
I gave them the benefit of the doubt, that maybe it was just a really busy night, and tipped, but service was pretty comically sad.
