Madison's Grill - Union Bank Inn Ratings and Reviews

I haven't been here in quite awhile. Very glad to re-visit as I had forgotten how much I like this spot. The ambiance is so relaxing; a nice size room and very tasteful decor, giving an intimate feeling to the room but not at all stuffy.
The service was excellent, professional but friendly. Our server did think to ask if we were on our way to a movie or the theatre so he could be sure our meals were timed accordingly. The menu is not large but has a very good variety, and most importantly, our starters and dinner were unquestionably worth the price. Beautifully plated, delicious to eat.
I wished we could have stayed for dessert but will next time.
I love this restaurant.

This was our fourth or fifth trip to Madison's Grill and it was great. The food was outstanding and the service was wonderful. Both the appetizer and the main courses were cooked and seasoned very well. I really enjoy that they often change the menu here so you get to try different plates.

My husband and myself recently dined at Madison's Grill. We have had dinner there several times in the past and have always enjoyed it. The ambience and service was very good. My short rib dinner was also very good, however my husband did not enjoy his dinner at all. He had the chicken dinner which had three small pieces of chicken, cold cauliflower and a very small amount of diced sweet potatoes. and was $34.00! Yes...we would probably dine there again but would not order the chicken dish.

Highly recommended. The menu was terrific with so many mouth watering choices we will have to come back. We enjoyed the onion tart and tuna nicoise - exquisite presentation and wonderful taste. Impeccable and discrete service and ideal atmosphere for a quiet meeting. Great value!

I was not overly impressed with my business lunch at Madison's. The food and wine is very expensive and the food does not warrant the expense. My salmon was overcooked and the risotto was greasy. I will not go back again. On the up side, the service and ambience were very good.

I have been to Madison's 4 times and each time has surpassed my expectations. By far on of my favourite restaurants in Edmonton. High quality food, incredible chefs and outstanding servers. I highly recommended the 3 course meal with or without wine pairing. You will not be disappointed!

We booked our special wedding anniversary dinner on line with Open Table, making reference to that fact. Restaurant was not busy. We ordered an onion tart to share as an appetizer which was just okay. My wife had roast chicken which she loved and I had the Steelhead Trout which was gorgeous but the mushroom was rubbery, the broccolini was "limp" and the mint pea puree seemed to "get in the way" of the rest of the food on the plate. Table service was attentive but we could have done without the gratuitous comments such as "how are the first bites tasting" and "if you don't want that truffle on your dessert plate, then I'll eat it." The time between our appetizer being finished and the arrival of the entree was about 30 minutes which is unacceptably long and our waiter did not apologize or explain the reason for the delay. Our water glasses were not re-filled until after we had finished our entree. My wife and I shared a 1/2 bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc which seemed over-priced. The wine list was surprisingly limited and the only sparkling wine by the glass was a cheap Spanish one and there was no Prosecco at all. No mention or acknowledgement of our special anniversary was made by the waiter. Overall, a disappointing evening which was in stark contrast to the one we spent at Madison's Grill for our 10th Wedding Anniversary.

The place was empty at 7pm on a Sunday night. There were two other tables with 2 people each. It took 45 minutes to get one appetizer and a full hour for our two dinners. This was a disgrace. The lamb chops were excellent but the strip loin was overcooked (asked for medium rare got medium) . What was the chef "busy" that night? Overall a very disappointed night, particular after reading other reviews. Would neither go back nor recommend. It you cannot handle three tables a total of 6 individuals, what happerns on a busy night or this there ever one at the restaurant.

The food was well presented but against my best judgement I shouldn't have ordered the seared tuna. It was obviously defrosted and was not that nice, the sauce was overwhelming and drowned out the taste.

Although we had enjoyed Madison's before it was a first visit for our friends. Usually difficult to impress, our friends are still talking about the excellent meal and service provided. It was a wonderful way to celebrate our joint wedding anniversaries.

The four of us in our party all had the six course tasting menu. We have had this before and it never disappoints. The food was excellent, as we waited to learn what would be presented as each course was set in front of us was full of anticipation. Each course was a wonderful experience. Service was attentive yet not overly. It was well paced but expect a full evening- ours was 3 hours but we expected this.

My husband and I visited Madison's on Monday as part of our honeymoon celebration. Being the day after a long-weekend, the restaurant was very quiet; the staff went out of their way to make our experience memorable. It was like having our own private chef, sommelier, and dining room. We had the six course Chef's Tasting Menu with wine pairings...and it was fantastic!
I cannot say enough about Todd, our waiter/sommelier! He was kind, knowledgeable, and gave us just the right amount of attention. He got really into the pairings, even broke out some special bottles just for us. Every dish was a delight but the chicken confit with roasted parsnip purée was a sheer delight!
Can't wait to go back!

Madison's Grill has substantively hiked prices while providing lower quality food. It used to be a regular option for a business lunch but that will no longer be the case for me. $22 for a extremely mediocre Cobb salad; $24 for a caesar salad with chicken on the side.
Warm white wine was only the start
We have enjoyed Madison's on several occasions prior. The poor experience started with the white wine being served at room temperature. The waiter did not want to do anything explaining he just removed the wine from the chiller however the maî·tre d intervened and provided a chilled bottle. The salads and appetizer arrived promptly and were fine. the main course however took an inordinately long time to arrive and when they arrived the meals the plates were warm but the meals were entirely stone cold. We complained to the waiter who apologized but he did not make a decision to correct the problem. We asked for the maî·tre d and the maî·tre d had the meals taken back to the kitchen. Moments later the meals came back and this time the plates were hot however the meals were only warm on the surface and still unsatisfactory. The solution provided was to remove the wine and liquor cost from the bill rather than provide a satisfactory meal.
Excellent brunch in semi private room
The location was excellent, the food was very good. Service was very good and the private room was a great bonus for a 90th birthday brunch. The only item I'd like to see changed is the parking - was a tad expensive at $6/hr.

Madisons grill is always wonderful. We have breakfast here every year on our wedding anniversary and everything about this little gem is on point. Our first experience with madisons, and the union bank inn was our wedding and they won us over. We look forward to our date with Madisons and the dinner menu is lovely as well. Thank you madisons for always making us feel special! TG
I booked online for Mother's Day Dinner, on Mother's Day! That in itself is a feat! The restaurant was vey nice and quiet ambiance was lovely. We ordered our food and when it came out it was cooked to perfection. We had the trout and the roast chicken. Divine. Have already recommended this restaurant. We will be back!
Ambience great, food no so good
We have been to Madison's a number of times in the past and always enjoyed our meal. Unfortunately something has changed at this restaurant. The drinks were watered down to start with. Then for an appetizer the scallops were small (a nickel size in diameter) and only three of them (they were also cold). I also ordered a steak medium rare and what I received was well done. Overall not the quality that should be given for the price they are charging.
Madison's Grill is a classic restaurant with an atmosphere to match. We visited during Downtown Dining week. Very well prepared food and thoughtful ingredients in some unique dishes. Mushroom croquettes - absolutely delicious. Pork cheek perogies - a different take on a very traditional dish - also delicious. Duo of beef - shortrib and tenderloin - both done to perfection. Salted Caramel Creme - a melt in your mouth, eat this very slowly to savor the flavors.
My family and myself took advantage of the downtown dining special. Overall the meals were very good, with only a few small complaints. We found the drink menu to be very expensive. Cocktails on average were running $13 and up. Wine list was not outstanding and was very pricey.
Could have been so much better
Food was good, no complaints there. Host seated me right away as well, no complaints as well there. Service was my main issue, waiter was curt assumed we were going for the dining week menu and overall sub par for this level of restaurant. Was a bit embarrassed because I told my dining mate that the service here was good from previous experience.
