Madera - Rosewood Hotel Sand Hill Ratings and Reviews
We are frequent Madera customers. Last Sunday evening was a disappointment, not sure if chef is different or it was just an off night. Table was excellent on the deck, but although waiter was professional, he was not friendly and it seemed he was just mumbling off phrases he memorized. I had the Sunchoke Veloute, Kampachi and Duck. Nothing stood out as memorable and the soup was served too cool. My boyfriend said the Heirloom Tomato salad was also just okay. Not so sure we will go back often anymore.
From start to finish our dinner was outstanding. Wines were incredible and although you could spend a ton of money on some of the vintages, we had a Sancerre that was delicious and reasonable. Rachel the Somm is spot on, ask her as she really knows her wines.
We can't wait to go back, if I lived closer I would frequent this place as often as possible.
My first visit, will return. Shared two appetizers with my date, the first, grilled foie gras, had lots of flavors and nuances. The second, the angelloti, was a new take on a pasta dish, delectable. Then we shared the halibut, soft and tender white meat. Delicious. The pairings were Sangiovese and Malbec for the appetizers and a NZ daub blanc for the halibut. Perfect. Finished the dinner with a double expresso, aromatic and tasty.
I will return.
Flawless service for a special occasion, if like me you are stressed about things going wrong on a special occasion, look no more. Staff at Madera went above and beyond just because I mentioned it was our anniversary and requested a table by the window. Food is great and view is nice (if going before sunset), but for us what really made a difference was the service, prompt but not pushy, multiple courtesies and attention to detail.
Madera has a great setting and it's nice if you can take advantage of the outdoor eating area. It would be even better if they were able to get air to circulate on hot days so the outside was more doable. The food has always been good, but I don't find it outstanding. Our servers have always been friendly and professional. To be honest, it is just too expensive for future visits. This last lunch between 3 women-3 salads, 1 glass of wine, 1 Bellini, 2 desserts shared and 3 iced coffee drinks came to $180. That's just ridiculous. My salad though good, came on a plate that they filled half with the salad and the other half was literally empty-odd presentation esp. when it cost so much. W probably won't dine here again in the future as it just seems to get more expensive and the food doesn't wow me.
Madera has never disappointed us, always impressed us, every time we visit. From breakfasts to lunches, special dinners, Christmas, you name it. This is our "go-to" place when we want a dependable five star dining experience. We have been going here for years and it is always a great dining experience.....food, setting, service and a great staff. You are a dependable "best".
probably expected more from the restaurant at this expensive resort. We were there on a Sunday and so had Brunch. My Eggs Benedict were so-so and my wife's selection was nothing special, throw in a mimosa and a blueberry lemonade and you are out the door for about $75 +tip
The bucolic setting is a rare find so close to its Bay Area villages and transportation. A wonderful relaxing property to enjoy no matter the length of your visit. The magnificent use of wood in the interior is awesome and a memorable feature of the property. And yes, brunch was everything we had anticipated and more. I am fortunate to live on the Peninsula with an opportunity to return to your property. Staff members were enthusiastic and friendly and certainly set the stage for a wonderful welcome and service throughout.
This was really a great evening and I really appreciate the restaurants's great job.. We were celebrating a special evening and I recommend anyone celebrating a special evening look at this place.
If I can provide one suggestion, I wish they would have had a few more people on the floor. It is a minor nit, but I would have expected that a few more people would have stopped by and cleared plates and refilled wine glasses. Not that I wanted to be doted on, but I also didn't want to be waiting for them to take our orders before going out to the balcony to enjoy the sunset...
Its a great location, awesome food, and great place... my suggestions are only to management to make it into a perfect evening.....

The staff here could not have been nicer. I changed our plans several times, canceling, and rebooking at the last minute, and they even had special menus printed for my husband's birthday. Wonderful service, food, and ambiance. A magical evening. Thank you!
Madera is a scene. Lots of Silicon Valley folks, Sand Hill VC's, international types looking to sell or buy into the next big tech idea. The menu prices reflect Madera's clientele: designer jeans, Gucci, Manolo,Swiss watches, Ferraris and Porches ion the parking lot mean caviar ($120 an ounce), great wines, mile high $18 hamburgers, designer salads and the world's best beignets for dessert. Was the scene worth it- sure.
Beautifully decorated restaurant with a great view inside a very nice hotel. I went there to celebrate my husband's birthday with our son. I asked our server if I can order something from the lunch menu for our son and he said no because the restaurant plans for the dinner menu. During our meal, I saw a plate of hamburger and french fries (from the lunch menu) being served to another party at the restaurant which I wasn't thrilled about. I ordered the rib eye which was delicious and for dessert shared beignets with my husband who also received a complimentary slice of cake for his birthday. Overall, we had a nice dinner yet I walked away feeling underwhelmed by the service and overrall dinner. I don't anticipate going back any time soon. I really was hoping to be wowed by this Michelin rated restaurant.
