"Sometimes you just get sick of pizza, hamburgers and tacos. You don't want something that is going to sit on your stomach like a sack of wet rags. That's when we go to la Madeleine. Great array of soups, salads and sandwiches as well as very good pastries. This place seems to have a high turnover, which means there is confusion at the register sometimes but the food is always good and the staff is always friendly. Sometimes busy but never ridiculously crowded. One thing they need to do is have some sweet tea. This is the South and we like our tea sweet. And since they don't drink iced tea in France i assume the iced tea is there to cater to American taste. So get some sweet tea, guys."
"Comfortable environment. A little cold but good food. Only complaint is the air return grates by the fireplace are very dirty and black with dirt. Time to do a more detailed cleaning. "
"This restaurant serves fake french food , everything is cooked beforehand and sits in warmers. No freshness at all ! No experienced cooks and served to you by goofy teenagers who don't know the first thing about good food! Don't even think of ordering pasta, all you get is boil in a bag like a TV dinner. Ordered a Chicken Friand, expecting a delicious pot pie type of meal and what I got was comparable to a Hot Pocket, bland and tasteless, with hardly any filling. The Crepes were hard and rubbery. Don't waste your time or money at this overpriced place . Note to the corporation, you have to actually COOK the food !"
"Food is OK and too expensive for the quality. Take away the french decor and it's average fare. The tomato basil soup is as good as always, however."
"Cashier placed the wrong order so I didn't get what I was expecting. Food server made no attempt to correct the mistake or get a manager involved. Coffee bar was out of coffee so we waited until they made more. It is no wonder why this place is empty at 8:30 on a Saturday morning."
