I like this place. The food is good with decent service and drinks but the restaurant marked me as a no show despite being there on time. Beware of making reservations here.

Fantastic service, ambiance, and food. My husband said he had one of the best chicken sandwiches he’s ever had. We were celebrating just getting married, and they sat us in an intimate back corner table. The cheese curds were on point. I had the steak frites with chimichurri sauce and garlic aioli which was delicious. I had an old-fashioned to drink and it was tasty. To top everything off, they brought out a skillet cookie with peanut cream cream on top, and it was amazing!! I would highly recommend and am looking forward to going back!

We had a reservation for 5 p.m., there were lots of open tables at that time. Our waiter was very attentive and constantly at our elbow seeing if we needed anything over ready to order. When we finally ordered the place was filling up and our waiter was very difficult to get ahold of after that. It was very loud but that's okay considering it was Friday night right around happy hour. My burger was good cooked correctly. I would go back again

Great job servicing the kids of the group (orders in first, the fanciest kiddie cocktails around, kind service) and the half price old fashion cocktails were a bonus!

The Madison Bar & Kitchen really set themselves apart from the rest when they had a NY Strip steak as their cut of steak with the steak and frites. They switched to Hanger, which is what everyone else has. It was honestly the best NY Strip I ever had before and made it a reason to come often. I would still recommend as it is a fun place and a lot of good choices but I personally wouldn't come back.

We made last minute reservations at the Madison Bar & Kitchen during our recent stay in Chicago. We were very pleased with the menu and food that we ordered. I believe my boyfriend said his burger was one of the best he's had. My salmon was amazing and cooked perfectly. We just missed Happy Hour, which ended at 6:30P but it's impressive that they offer discounted pricing on Saturdays.

We went during happy hour when the drinks are half price. Very nice because I had bundles and my husband had beer. We started with the Hamachi crude which was excellent. We then both had the Amish chicken which was tender and tasty. Mashed potatoes and kale were side and just perfect. We were too stuffed for dessert. Had a nice time.

When writing reviews I do so to help management better things for the public as opposed to just complaining. The atmosphere is great and the servers are good. Our bill for four people is $269. We had two beers wondering and one bottle of sparkling rose. We had two appetizers three main courses and one person had an appetizer for their dinner.
The Bronzino came with skin on it and was a small portion. There were two pieces of cauliflower that were pickled and a small portion of the sautéed spinach. I felt like I needed to eat after eating, and the Bronzino was $32. My husband had a steak which was very good but also ordered duck fat fries and they did not taste like they had duck fat on them. The waitress confirmed that she also felt like a duck that fries don’t really taste like they have that flavoring. The cheese curds were good and the West Coast sushi roll was also good. The Burrata was excellent and a good portion.
We got the more expensive bottle of rose sparkling at $58. The first bottle was flat so they opened another one for us. I think if the portion sizes were better and they put a little bit more into the flavoring of the food this could be a stellar place.
Nice visuals and lively atmosphere without being too loud but we were in a booth in the back so not sure how the noise level is at the front of the restaurant.

Ambiance and decor was pretty amazing. Staff was nice. Oh don’t consider this restaurant gourmet but it has gourmet pricing and portions. The food was ok but not great. I didn’t care for getting my own mimosa, when I’m conversing with friends.

We went for brunch. Food selection is good and all of us enjoyed what we had. The salmon benedict was awesome and the short ribs and eggs were very good. It is a little pricey, especially if you have drinks. Service was very good, attentive without being pushy.

Over cooked meals. Both taken away and remade. Drinks were made incorrectly as well. Manager did not comp accordingly. Was looking like a great spot until the end when he didn’t handle the mistakes the right way. We ended up leaving feeling extremely disappointed.

I had the Wagyu burger with a side salad. Both tasted great, although I thought the burger was a bit on the small side. My old fashioned.... their signature drink... was outstanding; I loved the glass it was served in. I went on a Sunday night at 8pm and the place was almost empty. I will try them again.
