"First time to la Madeleine, it was a bit confusing as there was no signage stating that there is actually a to go order line and a dine in order line. I was planning to dine in but ordered in the to go line. Service took about 40 minutes which I thought was a bit much for this style restaurant. We had tomato soup, French dip, croque-monsieur, pasta salad. Most everything was good not special, well the soup was pretty nice. The pasta salad was very bland, very very bland, cardboard bland! Since I ordered in the wrong line it was in a to go container. The person who placed it in said container just shoved the lid on smashing it so that it wouldn't even close, also had pasta salad all over the side as if they used the container to scoop it out of a large batch. Common, you have to train your staff better than that!! I think this place has potential to be better so hopefully it was just an off day for them on my first visit"
"No more roasted chicken!
Their newly designed menu has illuminated the roasted chicken. If you love the roasted chicken and Caesar salad you're going to be sadly disappointed. Now all the chicken is something they call balsamic marinated. Not sure but it sounds like it's cooked somewhere else. If you're as disappointed as I am in this move toward lowering quality let them know at corporate. Sounds like a cost-cutting measure of a new owner or CFO."
"I love this place. Great ambiance. The people are extremely friendly. The lighting is perfect, not too bright, not too dim. Never have had a problem with the food preparation. They make you feel so at home that it's like your home away from home.
I am a huge fan of the La Madeleines, but this is the best by far. None are run as well or physically designed as well as this one. I go there 2-3 times every week without fail.
I give the top rating and would add another star if I could."
"Great food and service , dessert here for me is the bread ,butter with strawberry rhubarb jam and BlackBerry jam"
"Went for coffee with friends. Just lovee the place. Perfect place to hangout. It has indoor as well as outdoor dining. So We enjoyed both. Highly recommend this place to relax n chit chat."

"We couldn't find a table that was clean...it's like the busboy was on vacation or something. Of course the food here is delicious as always.
After having visited again a few more times they seem to have had an "off" night the first visit. The tables have been promptly cleaned on subsequent visits and we really enjoy the staff here!"
"Best of the la Madeleine's in the area. This one is actually laid out properly, just cozy enough to feel like a French bistro with wood and a fireplace. Some of the others feel like, well, a commercial cafe. Good food, bring back the lentil soup! "
