Madeleine's was a wonderful find. Great experience all around! The food was amazing and our server was friendly and helpful. Located in the cutest neighborhood! Very cozy restaurant with an extensive selection of cocktails! I would highly suggest this to anyone looking for a nice dining experience!

Have dined at Madelein's a number of times, each time it has been delightful until this past Saturday. For starters, the chopped salad was to include maple bacon and it did not, then the asparagus that was ordered with main dish was very tough and partly unedible. Main dish was ok but not great. Dessert was wonderful. I hope this was simply an off night and not an indicator of the direction this place is headed, for an upscale dining experience, it fell some short of the goal on this evening.

I was delighted with the restaurant but disappointed in the cost in relation to the portion size. Our appetizer was delicious but very overpriced and was disappointed in the lack of fresh basil on our caprese salad. Would go again but would choose wiser in my order

My husband and I had a great experience. The bartender went out of his way to make is the perfect cocktail and pick out the best wine. Our server was very sweet and the food was amazing!... we will definitely be back!

I was very disappointed in my dinner - but think I might have ordered the wrong items as some of the other selections actually looked good. On a positive note - this is a very quaint and cozy neighborhood spot. Service was attentive. Unfortunately, food just did not hit the mark for me - especially given the price. Crying tiger beef appetizer was unimpressive - very small scraps of meat with a simple spicy sauce. My entree was an even bigger disappointment - the Blackened Red Fish. I expected a full piece of fish - what I got was chunks of fish that were heavily over-spiced and unrecognizable when it arrived on a bed of black rice which was sticky and only slightly warm. I actually thought they had brought out the wrong entree at first. Sorry to say - but there was nothing good about that dish at all. Lobster mac side dish was okay. A few others ordered the NY Steak Au Pouivre and that actually looked nice.

The waitress was attentive and Informative about the menu. The bar selection was expansive and the menu had a wonderful variety. The food was out of this world! I would highly recommend Dining here for a special occasion or romantic night out!

we have been to madeleines before and it was excellent. there was something off this time. my wife recieved something totally different than what she ordered, it was sent back and she picked a different menu item. It was wrong again, something totally different than what was described on the menu. My steak was good but not worth the $$ I paid for it. We will probably go back but it wont be our first choice. bad form madeleines bad form.

We went to Madeline's Wednesday evening and had a fabulous dining experience. It was a beautiful fall evening so we chose the outdoor seating. The patio setting there is cozy and relaxing. Everything about the evening was first class, from the cocktails and appetizers through the main course to desserts and coffee. The staff was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.
We are looking forward to a return visit soon!

We went to Madeleine's during Evansville's Restaurant Week. Our server was outstanding and a great help in picking a wonderful red wine for dinner. We got the Restaurant Week meal which consisted of salad (chopped for me and Caesar for him), Beef Wellington with asparagus and potatoes, and a chocolate mousse cake. We added an order of scallops for an appetizer. Everything was very fresh. The salads were fresh with house made dressings. The beef was cooked perfectly. I feared the cake would not measure up but it was so delicious. It was moist and dense. Just perfect! The restaurant is beautiful and the food was outstanding. It was the best meal I've had in a long while. We will definitely be back.

First visit, anniversary celebration which we told server. Very slow service even for cocktails while waiting for food. Menu not our personal taste preference, do not plan to return. Definitely pricey meal that really didn't like

Very quaint little restaurant in historic district. Very friendly staff. Food was first class and imaginative. Can not say enough about the wine selection! Never in such a small local type restaurant have I saw such a really nice selection of wines. Apparently the sommelier and I have similar tastes in wines. Many of my favorite California vintners and selections not often seen and at a good price I might add. Enjoyed the night emensely !

Only negative was that I asked for a high chair and booster seat - neither was ready - they have to find both - which didn't take long...just surprised it wasn't ready given I covered that in the reservation and they called to confirm and we went over it again.

My wife and I like everything about Madeleine's for special occasion dining. On our most recent visit, the server was attentive ad very knowledgeable of the menu, and our table near a front window was perfect for an anniversary dinner. My wife raved about the haddock special; by duck breast was superb. We will return and highly recommend for special occasions.

I was disappointed in our dinner. My salad was dripping in dressing to the point that I only ate 4 bites. The manager offered to make another, but i did not want to do that. She first offered to add more lettuce which I could not believe was suggested at a fine restaurant. The soft shell crab had absolutely no meat so it was not worth eating at all. The scallops appetizer was delicious so that was actually the only food I ate. The person I was with liked the kale salad. The ono fish was described by the waitress as flakey but it was in fact a very dense steak fish. Disappointing. We had two drinks, 2 beers, one bottle of wine. The wine was good. Wine was $60/bottle. All total it cost $270 with the tip. Not worth it. I would not recommend eating here. We left hungry and went somewhere else for dessert.
Wonderful dining experience
My husband and I visited Madeline's Fusion in Friday evening at 6pm. We requested to sit on the patio which was a great choice. It was almost an island vibe with fans and music as well. The food was amazing. For an app we had the crying tiger beef, the chicken dish of the week may have been the best we have ever had! And the pork tenderloin was great too! Great for a special occasion. Out of our price range on a normal day but we will be back next year for our 2nd anniversary!

Still an outstanding restaurant. We love eating here. The service is impeccable, drinks are always great, and the food beyond compare and expectations. We love it when the owner stops by our table to say hi or mention a new dessert. She's the best!
Pricy but Special
Excellent food. Crab cakes taste and texture compared well with those I've experienced in Northeast. However, small proportion size did not justify price. Filet was excellent. Cooked perfectly, very tender, excellent taste. Salad prepared nicely and tasted great. Service was very good. Attentive but not on a pushy level. A sincere friendly attitude. Sitting by front entrance on a cold night was a bit chilly
Great Food, Service and atmosphere!
This is a great find. Great menu that changes monthly, food is amazing, service is one of the best. We have been to many restaurants around the country, and this is one of the best. Unique combinations of food, fresh seafood, excellent steaks. Highly recommend
We loved the relaxed feel. The food was great, I had the ribeye, she had the strip. Both grilled to perfection. The wine list was outstanding. The service by Kinsey was outstanding-she was attentive (not overly attentive), her knowldge and recommendations were perfect. We will definitely return for a cozy romantic dinner. Please give Kinsey our thanks.
Cold but expensive
We went on a Tuesday night and ordered appetizers along with main courses. There appeared to be only one waiter working the entire restaurant. It took awhile to get them and our 2 appetizers came separately.....we had completely finished the first one before the second one came. Both were lukewarm in temperature. We were ordering drinks from the bar also. At one point it took so long for one drink to arrive that the waiter gave it to us 'on the house'. When our dinners finally came to the table, they were both cold so we sent them back. The waiter was extremely apologetic about that. I will say that the food was delicious! But the prices were quite high. I don't think a restaurant that charges $40 for a steak should take so long and then send it to a table cold. The entire bill was $188 for 2 people who ordered 2 appetizers, several drinks, 2 dinners, and 1 dessert. To spend that much money waiting for cold food to arrive is not worth it in my opinion (even though it was very tasty).
