Once again a disappointment – We havent visited the Madison Park Cafe for a few years because of their average food and haphazard service. A couple of weeks ago we decided to give them another chance. Alas, nothing has changed. Even for a busy Saturday night the service was too chaotic. I chose one of their specials Grilled Copper River Salmon, which turned out to be a $28 flavorless flesh in a burnt crust. My husbands dish - Coq Au Vin, was only slightly better. On another hand, an appetizer of Chicken-Liver Pate was quite good. If youre OK with having a mediocre food in a nice location with a cozy patio seating when the weather is nice, Madison Park Cafe is for you. But if its a great food youre after, avoid this place.

Hidden Surprise – Had dinner with a friend from Phoenix. At the server's suggestion I ordered the spinach salad. Terrific. My Phxfriend ordered the onion soup, but received the evenings's special soup - roasted eggplant. Okay, but not knockout. Phxfriend ordered evening's seafood special - skatewing on an English pea puree with roasted prawn. Skate was overdone, and the prawn was mush. I asked the server, Tony, to pick between the coq au vin and the crispy duck atrisan. Tony ordered the duck - yummy! First bite was slightly gamey and every bite thereafter delectable. The star anise/blood orange sauce reduction was incredible. Dessert? Heck, yes! Phxfriend ordered pear sorbet - to die for. I had the Meyer lemon tart with huckleberry sauce - again wonderful. Try this place and ask for Tony. He'll give you great service and his recommendations shouldn't be ignored. I'll definitely go back!

Outdoor Summer Nights – This is a wonderful place to dine on a beautiful, summer evening. The food was very good and the service was friendly. We dined in the outdoor courtyard. It was fabulously romantic. Don't go here if you are in a hurry. We appreciated the slow pace, as we lingered over our delicious wine and food.

Not what I thought – We had high expectations, but the food was cold and the service was poor. The people were rude too. My date was so upset that I think I will never go back again!

Awful service – We called ahead to make reservations at 9:30 pm on a Friday night. We had some difficulty finding the restaurant and arrived 5 minutes late. They refused to serve us, saying the kitchen was closed, even though the restaurant is supposed to be open until 10 pm on Fridays. Really low class and unprofessional in our opinion, quite disappointing.

Great breakfast/long wait – Madison Park Cafe has a fantastic breakfast, but on a nice day the wait to get into this tiny restaurant can be an hour or so. Since I live a block away, it's easy for me to pop over to check the wait. I wouldn't drive here from another part of town to be disappointed, though. The food during dinners is very nice. Far more upscale than the waitstaff who perform at a level somewhat below what you would expect at this type of establishment. BTW, skip the wine or bring your own bottle - their list of choices is tiny, and the wine is served 10 degrees too warm (in the upper 60's).

Sandwich boards. – Good food. Nice design on new sandwich boards. Unfortunately, the owner hosed a Seattle Central Community College graphic design student on this design.

Great Brunch! – This a great place for Sunday brunches. Everything on their menu is gourmet style. They offer great quiches, pastries, juices....I would recommend this place to everyone.

Yes (Ms.) Chef! Did you know that all these restaurants are either owned by women or have a woman as their head…
