Madera - Rosewood Hotel Sand Hill Ratings and Reviews

Started with the corn soup and chicken for main entree so moist.
My friend had the halibut also a winner.
Bread is delicious and hard to resist.
Service is always so professional and courteous.
I love this place and so do my friends!

To our disappointment, the meal and experience fell short of expectations. The setting is perfect, and dining room scenic and comfortable. Service was fine, but not consistent with a Michelin 1 Star. More disappointing was the food. Most of our dishes were fine, though the lamb was terribly disappointing. If it wasn't a Michelin 1 star, I'd give it a four. But I guess we were looking for something a bit more special.

This place was great, my wife likes fancy places and she really enjoyed this place as well. It was a little difficult to find. Just go to the hotel's main and they'll direct you, it's right down the hall from there.

Great experience with amazing food and excellent service. This is clearly a place the VC's and bankers like to go for lunch. I'd say about 90% of the restaurant were extremely successful businessmen having lunch meetings of some sort.

Madera has a lovely outside deck with great views, though inside it was quite noisy.
The service was truly excellent. The food was delicious, though not exciting. The lunch menu is pretty pricey, though I would come back for a special occasion.

Price / performance was ok, nothing special. Ambiance was nice.
A 3-course dinner for 4 guests, with 2 having wine, for about $320,
was entirely acceptable. Wait staff was attentive. The greeter at
the front mistakenly thought I didn't have reservations until
someone told him the others had already been seated, and then he
let me through. Overall, it was a nice evening but nothing special.

Our server was excellent, ambiance excellent, food excellent!
There was a birthday celebration at the next table (we were outside) and at our table we had a person with a hearing-aid which he had a hard time with the surrounding noise. Our server suggested she find a different table for us, but was not able to - we all survived! We just stayed until the birthday celebration moved on - - -

I have had the opportunity to have dinner at Madera twice in the last 3 weeks. It seems to me that the quality of the main dishes has fallen off. They tend to be a bit bland and uninteresting. The appetizers and desserts are excellent. So I think next time I will just have those and skip the main.

Cesar, our server, was amazing, friendly, the epitome of professionalism and provided impeccable service. My guests and I had the most amazing, perfect dining experience that exceeded our expectations. The service, food, and hospitality was impeccable.

Everything was fine. Separately, since someone else is paying the bill, can you provide me with an itemized receipt, showing the cost of the alcohol (wine) and food. If not, can you tell how
to get an itemized receipt? Thank you

We had a delightful mid-evening meal outside Thursday night, great drinks, good appetizers and delicious entrees. The evening was lovely looking West from the patio and the spot was a perfect choice for an important business meeting with someone in from The East Coast.
We each had equally good glasses of different red wine—I had the Turley Zinfandel—and I think the service was first rate, attentive but not overly so.

Amazing to sit outside as the sun goes down. Food was good besides the "grilled" ribeye and short ribs. They obviously sous vide then put in a not-hot-enough grill for a sear. I'm ok with sous vide. Do so at home. But don't call it grilled. Also they cut off all the fat and bring it down to the size and texture (sous vide too long ) of a filet mignon. Very disappointing. The short rib cones out like a poorly formed terrine. Tastes fine but has no context with the side offerings, which themselves were not memorable and added nothing but color (and nutritional value) to the plate.
Great service, very knowledgeable server ...
Great service, very knowledgeable servers. Extensive wine list, but really pricey. A half bottle of Napa Valley Chardonnay was $40. The outside tables have a great view, and it is much quieter than the dining room. Self parking is available, a short walk from the front door.
The halibut and accompanying vegetables ...
The halibut and accompanying vegetables were outstanding. The dressing on the mixed green salad was subtle and did not interfere with the fine New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Most especially, the first cup of coffee was hot as were subsequent refills. This is unlike most restaurants where the first cup is hot coffee poured into a cold cup and immediately lukewarm.
The view from the deck is scenic. We went there for our anniversary as we have done several time in the past and hope to do many more times.

The bread to start was actually really, really good. Both entrees were solid and the dessert was interesting, but I think we just picked the wrong one for us. The highlight is the view on the balcony and classy yet casual atmosphere. And for the wine lovers, there's an uber thick, extensive wine list.

Dinner with a view! Madera is an amazing restaurant and the outdoor seating had an amazing view. Our waiter, Eddy, was just a gem!!! From the moment we entered the hotel, until the moment we left, everything went perfectly. There is not one thing I can say about the entire experience that I would want to change. The presentation was beautiful on every dish from the appetizer to the desert. The meal lasted a little over 2 hours, and we watched the sun set as we experienced our meal. The wine sommelier had an answer to every question and paired our meal with the perfect wine. I could not more highly recommend this restaurant for a wonderful date or special occasion. Thank you!!!!

Very poor service. We sat at the table for nearly 10 minutes without receiving any greetings from the server who glanced at us and simply walked by many times. We didn't get a sip of water until much later. We also had to stare at empty plates after finishing the meals for a good while as well. Again, the server himself and the crews who appeared to be busboys made several rounds of the walk-bys past our table and just looked on while we sat and discussed our business with empty plates in front.

We arrived at 7:45 for a birthday dinner for six people and we left 3 hours later after just 2 courses, no desert. Horrible service. I have been here before and it has really gone downhill, food was so so.. It seems the staff knew that the 20% gratuity would be charged regardless. I will not be back.
