I love the Madison Bar & Kitchen, and it is slowly becoming my go-to neighborhood restaurant. The food is always good (fantastic cheeseburger!), the service is always great, and the staff is always nice. All you can ask for in a neighborhood hangout.

Service and food was great but we sat near the back of the restaurant and there were many fruit flys in our booth. It was quite distracting.

Perfect brunch spot. Service was flawless, food was delicious, location is outside of the crazy energy loop. The $25 Mimosa special seemed popular though we didn't do it. There's a boutique next door that has great quippy cards and gifts. Be sure to check it out.

We met for brunch on Saturday. It was busy, but not too crowded. I had the brunch old fashioned (which was strong), and a friend had an Irish coffee - both delicious. The Sausage Biscuit with duck fat fries was everything I could have ever wanted (I spit it with a friend, and the portion was just right - the servers even asked the kitchen to spit it before sending it out!) The biscuit was buttery, flakey, and crumbly with a large portion of sausage. All the toppings were perfect. The Bibimbap was also delicious. I strongly recommend this place for brunch.

My team visited The Madison for a group outing. The staff was super accommodating with reservations and information prior to our arrival and we’ll pre when we got there. The management and staff were friendly, upbeat, and helpful and the food was fabulous! I would highly recommend The Madison for a large group event.

Nice spot in the west loop. Great weekend brunch menu with some amazing flavor combos. The brioche toast is amazing but it definitely a dessert item. Don't miss the $25 mimosa bar which stayed open past 2:30 (thumbs up)!

Went for the happy hour. They had a very limited happy hour drink menu. No food on the happy hour menu. I feel like there should have been. They are preparing to change the food menu.

The decor is gorgeous and hip! Very casual but nice. The music is diverse but I feel like they should have played more modern music because the decor is so chic and modern.

Great place to meet up with friends and have a bite to eat. Good for sharing appetizers! I'll go back soon!

Grabbed a week night dinner here with friends. Vibe is trendy, fun, and chic. Happy Hour prices were great for drinks! Cocktails were delish and unique, very summery and seasonal! For food we shared two of the sushi rolls, crispy brussel sprouts, burrata, Madison Burger, and short ribs. That was plenty for the four of us. Sushi was fresh, but loosely rolled. Tempura brussel sprouts were unique, crispy and very tasty. Burrata melted and the addition of fresh and sundried tomatoes was a perfect combination. Madison Burger was juicy and delicious- definitely order again. The short ribs were tender, but not anything super special. Would love to go back and try more of this unique and delicious menu!

Excellent service, food & drinks! Was there to celebrate a girlfriend’s birthday and the night could not have been better! Our server Melissa was on point, all plates were good portions to share (yummy cheese curds & shishito peppers!) and the environment was lively but definitely not too loud for conversation!

A day in advance, made a reservation for a party of 1 for a Monday night at 6:00 PM. Got to the location around 5:55. Was told that bigger parties had made reservations, so I would not be receiving a table. Was told I could sit at the bar if I wanted, but that was my only choice. Person telling me this wasn't even slightly apologetic. I set at the bar since I was already there. Bartender was nice enough, but was (totally reasonably) busy making drinks so couldn't really be attentive to my dining. Drinks were good and somewhat unique but weak for the $13 price tag. Food was bland and a little dry. Decor was nice and trendy, but above bar sign was broken and not functioning, so I didn't get the full impact.

Would not go back. You don't cancel someone's reservation (without even telling them in advance) just because a larger party made a reservation after the fact. If you do this, you should over some kind of apology and maybe a discount on something. Also, there were at least 2 empty tables the entire time I was there, so...

We had a reservation for 10 on Mother’s Day to celebrate that and my brothers graduation day. Our server was great! I wish I looked at her name on the receipt (she was very blonde and had tattoos and nose piercings). She provided amazing service, was extremely nice, and even took photos of us when we asked! The restaurant was nice and food was good too, especially the cookie skillet. I would recommend.
