Madera - Rosewood Hotel Sand Hill Ratings and Reviews

Unfortunately service was very slow. Took 30 minutes just to get our order taken ( we did not order drinks). Food was OK, visually appealing, but taste did not measure up.
View is great if you get there before sunset, trying to be imaginative, but don't succeed.
Puzzled how they got one star.

Overall the food, ambiance and service were very fine. However, would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with food restrictions. We informed the waiter that my husband could not eat sugar and reiterated this constraint with every course. Both the server and the kitchen were completely disrespectful of the restriction, repeatedly offering sweets and actually trying to convince him to eat them.

We love the outdoor patio because of the scenic outlook to mountainside. Great place for outdoor brunch when weather nice. Service could be better though on the multiple times we have been there. Overall a solid place to go for special occasion.

I came here for my birthday and we had such a beautiful meal. We enjoyed the view as the sun set and the food so much we did not realize that we wound up staying 3 hours. The server was the perfect balance of funny and sweet but not too intrusive. She really made the entire experience wonderful. The som was sweet to listen and make good recommendations for us. The hamachi crudo was a refreshing start but the amuse bouche dishes in between were very salty. Our entrees were all very delicious and perfectly cooked medium rare. Our favorites were the steak, duck and lamb, in that order. We had both the California Grapes and Candied Meyer Lemon for dessert. We were delighted by the playfulness of the California Grapes and the surprising bursts of violet in the sorbet. The variance in textures on the plate were delightful.

I've been here a few times. Food is great and comparable to other area restaurants. My dish wasn't cooked right, so that was disappointing. They didn't take it off my bill, which would have been the right thing to do. Otherwise our dishes were good.

The food was cold and not served on a hot plate. The salad was soggy and the server took of for 25 minutes at the end of our dinner. For 5 people we spent $600 including tip and everyone was disappointed. Plus a verbal fight started up after dinner between our group. Just added "salt to the wound". Not a pleasant birthday experience for my wife.

My husband and I love Madera! Our most recent visit was to celebrate our wedding anniversary and everyone there treated us so wonderfully. From the hostess to the wait staff, to the kitchen staff - everyone was wonderful. And the food was fabulous!!! I love how creative they are with the dishes and the presentation is always impressive. Great place!!!

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.
