We just celebrated my birthday in the private room at Madison's Cafe. It was outstanding in every way. The room was beautiful with flowers on every table, linens in fall colors making each place setting festive. The table set up was ideal in an open U shape, leaving plenty of room in the center of the room for cocktails and visiting before dinner. The entrees we chose were cooked to perfection and served timely and piping hot. All the food from salad to dessert was so delicious. The wait staff, Morgan and Chris, were so professional and pleasant, dedicated to making us feel very well cared for. They took orders while the guests were still standing and visiting; then delivered them without confusion after the guests' were seated! The party was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. I made the right choice. Thank you, Madison's! More...

This "visit" was actually a catered event. Friends celebrating a 50th anniversary. When I asked who supplies the food the answer was Madison's. A couple of pastas were as good as pasta can be when prepared ahead of time and kept warm until serving. But, the salad was awesome and Italian bread from St. Louis' Hill Italian neighborhood was the best. For restaurant dining or a catered event Madison's supplies the need for enjoyable traditional Italian comfort food. More...

We went to Madison’s for the first time. We enjoyed the food and the waitress was great. We had enough food that we were able to bring some home for the next day. We also splurged and got a dessert, turtle cheesecake - great choice. I will definitely go back. Great place Julie More...

Through the years I've visited Madison's many times on different days of the week, different times of day, for different purposes--date night, group meeting, small family outing, large family holiday get together. Our visits have always received good service and good quality food in an enjoyable atmosphere. On any visit the worst Madison's provided was simply an average experience. And that's why I was perplexed by the number of one-star reviews. From the comments I don't recognize the Madison's I've visited. Researching those reviewers indicates other issues are brought to their opinions about Madison's food quality and service. Any restaurant in this area providing one-star experiences as often as some Yelpers indicate would not last long: There are so many other dining options nearby--perhaps too many. National restaurant chains, regional chains, and independents have closed stores here within 5, 10, 20 years of opening. Madison's has been in St. Charles County for over 30 years. Obviously, they're doing something right: They've been pleasing diners for a long time. More...

Very rich and flavorful, I got the full size a d there was enough for 2 people!!. My husband got the dish with six large shrimp in sauce and pasta with a side and salad. Very very good and again large portions. The owners son was our server and was great in recommending our dishes. The owner came and spoke to us and our son for a while and was so sweet and kind. We will definitely be back to enjoy a steak next time. Great Italian food. Great service, great atmosphere very homely feel and appreciate the Love of God shown in this place!!! More...

Dining here is a yearly tradition when I attend a summer conference in Jeff City. It is a American/Italian restaurant with friendly waitstaff and huge portions. On that note...order the lunch portions at dinner. There is no way you can eat all of the normal size meal. I ordered the caprese salad-it is huge! Don't order unless you plan to share or make it your meal. Huge slices of tomatoes, cheese and fresh basil drizzled with balsamic - a little too much IMO - but it was good. I  think the side salad is a better choice. I had a small portion of the aioli pasta without the baby shrimp and it was enough for me. They do bring tasty bread, a huge plate of olive oil mixed with garlic and Parmesan cheese-very rich but amazing! Don't fill up on it-may be hard to do if you like garlic bread.  Overall this is a nice place and I recommend you give it a try. There are a lot of pastas and protein dishes and you and your fellow diners will be able to find something you like or can share. More...

A nice lounge for before it after dinner drinks. I often stop by to pick up a combination supreme salad to go with dinner. Their homemade Italian dressing is absolutely the best I've ever tried.

Excellent food.  We are going there this weekend to support their religious views.  The owners were not refusing the LGBT service in their restaurant per se. ..it was only to not do a rehearsal dinner for the couple.  The prospective couple can have their dinner done by another restaurant who supports this way of life.

Madison's Cafe is a staple of the Jefferson City food scene.  Focused on Italian cuisine, they have a  long list of pastas at an affordable price.  Up until yesterday, the Chicken Jalapeño Pasta has always been my favorite.  It had a creamy rich spicy sauce before, but now the sauce seems to be more tomato based which the friend I was with found to be better than before (she had also had it the previous way) but I preferred the original.  A couple great things about Madison's: the complimentary bread served with fresh garlic and parmesan makes for a great starter.  They have a good list of appetizers; try the fried zucchini.  They have two awesome salads, the house and the combination salad.  The house salad has a red wine vinaigrette and artichoke hearts while the combination salad has a creamy italian dressing.  Both are served with red onion, an olive, and a pepperoncini.  I prefer the combination salad,  It comes in a "mini size" which is smaller than the "small" and makes for an easy addition to any meal without getting overstuffed.  The cavatelli, lobster ravioli, and formerly the chicken jalapeño pasta are some of my favorites. They also have steak and chicken entrees available if you aren't craving pasta.  They usually have good lunch specials going on and they have a really good chicken salad croissant that routinely makes an appearance.  They have plenty of small tables for groups of 2-4 but also a nice large room in the back of the restaurant if you are planning for a larger crew.

I don't know who the Saturday night bartender is but he has been here at least 20 years and works his tail off to serve us at the bar every time we come. This is in-between making the drinks for the entire restaurant. I don't know how he does it but I am always ultra impressed. Thank you for your excellent service and your ability to juggle all of your customer's wants. More...

My husband and I shared the combination salad and it was quite good. My husband had the manicotti and said that it was pretty good. My pasta and broccoli was delicious. And my son enjoyed his spaghetti. The wait staff was accomodating and friendly. I would have liked to try the dessert but we were all much too full and will also have lunch for tomorrow.

Our waitress (Carrie)was very quick to get our bread and salads out. (The combination salad is my favorite) She gave us time to eat them, checked on us often and then the chicken came.

My mother and father just had their 60th wedding anniversary at Madison's Cafe. We rented the private room out and they did a wonderful job decorating it. My sister and I didn't have to do very much at all. We were so very impressed with the service and decorating the tables for us. On top of this they have wonderful food and cocktails. If you want a great place to eat or have a private function this is the place for it. They went above and beyond our expectations. The center pieces of the flowers blew us away. You are so awesome. My parents had a wonderful day. We have never been disappointed with Madison's. Thank you so much for making my parents day so special. More...

John was my server and was fantastic, very personable and attentive, seems to genuinely enjoy helping his customers. Wasn’t a huge fan of the chicken fettuccini Alfredo and mentioned that just personally I didn’t like the Alfredo texture and taste, but I’m just picky! John discounted the bill unexpectedly, I tipped on the full amount, on the condition that I come back and try something else sometime. I will! More...

Lunch for two excellent!!!Food 5Service 5Cleanliness 5Went here for a late lunch so it was fairly empty. Sometimes not great for a restaurant, but this one was great! Food - We ordered a House salad, Toasted Ravioli, Linguine Julia. The salad is really interesting. My boyfriend said it was slightly wilted, so I knew what to expect, but I hadn't had it before. It was really good. Wilted lettuce has a different texture, but it was really really good. Personally I would ask for the dressing to be on the side as it was really heavy for my taste, but the dressing itself was really good tasting. The toasted ravioli was SO delicious! Very savory and rich, the marinara was clean and fresh, good balance. The linguine Julia.. I was skeptical as many places do not cook scallops or shrimp properly. Glad I tried it... scallops, shrimp and noodles were all on point, NOT overcooked at all!!! The garlic sauce was perfectly creamy, not starchy or gooey, just a perfect white wine cream sauce. LOVED it! Thank you Madison's! Perfect food for a lovely mid week lunch date!Service - It wasn't busy, but our server didn't hover, but she was very attentive and accommodating. Cleanliness - I did not use the facilities here, but the restaurant was VERY clean! We walked into the back and checked out the bar and event room, classy, elegant but not pretentious. More...

This was an amazing dining experience! Me and my family went to Madison's for dinner and the food and service were amazing. I had the clam bisque for my starter. My sisters had the house salad which looked great. For our entrees I had the manicotti which was just the right size. My mom had the lava rock steak for her meal. It was actually cooked at the table. My sisters had the sirloin and the zesty bow tie past for there meals. We all over ate and really enjoyed the food. Our server was incredibly nice and professional. She made several great recommendations. The place was nice and classy but we felt comfortable in our work clothes. This place was great and I highly recommend. More...

A month or so ago I had an issue with a take out order from Madison’s and I had posted the issue on here. Rob immediately got in touch with me and not only reimbursed me for the meal but sent me a gift certificate for a future visits. The gift certificate is LONG ago spent but my family and I went in last night (Saturday, June 30) for a sit down meal and things could not have been better. From the excellent customer service by the entire staff to the delicious Aglio Et Olio (my favorite “go to”) and everything in between! There’s a reason Madison’s has been a highly successful eatery in Jefferson City for more than 30 years! Kudos to Rob and his entire staff! More...

I just moved to Missouri from Ohio and after driving 14 hours and unpacking my family and I decided to go here. We were tired, hungry and just wanted to eat. The waitress was lovely- very accommodating and nice. Even for a busy Saturday evening. And the table was decorated with fresh, real flowers. Beautiful touch. The bread with dipping oil was warm and tasty. The house salad wasn't wilted, it just had artichoke in it. I enjoyed the red wine vinaigrette. I've heard that when in Missouri, one must try the fried ravioli so we ordered that as an app and were impressed. Sticking with the ravioli theme- I ordered the veal and mushroom stuffed ravioli, next. It was well made though slightly cold. The only food I received like that( Kitchen timing issue). Overall, A+. Can't wait to return. More...

My husband and I just move here from Chicago. We've had dinner at restaurants that have received coveted Michelin Star ratings and didn't get a meal as wonderful as we had at the Madison. Our server ( I hope I get his name right because it was noisy in the restaurant) Darryl was a gentlemen in every sense. His recommendations were spot on and everything was cooked to perfection. Truly, I would go there just for the salads and the vegetables.  We ordered Chateaubriand  for two. To say it was heavenly doesn't even begin to describe our meal. Our server, upon finding out that we were first time guests graciously gave us dessert on the house. The bread pudding and the cheesecake was enough to make the angels sing! There was enough food to feed a third world country! We met the owner, Rob who was so sweet and wonderful.  We love this restaurant. Its fine dining without the snooty pretentiousness of most high end restaurants. We'll be going back again, and again! More...

First and foremost, I am a huge fan of Madison's and have tried most of the menu. When I tell you that the Veal parmigiana changed my life know that I am serious. Such an amazing dish, not the fanciest but it sure taste like your grandma made it in her old world italian kitchen. This place is fantastic the service is always top notch and the quality of the food seems to never change. If you are visiting the bustling metropolis that is Jefferson City, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to this amazing treat! More...

First time sitting down inside to eat. Have had it catered many times and it's always good food, I'm always a fan, a pasta fan. ... I had salad and the spaghetti, for a penny, with a meatball. Salad and house made dressing, always a hit. And the bread is too die for. Our waiter was moving too fast for me ( suggesting too much as we tried to order, rushing off as soon as we stop speaking, which left us asking for a lot, (napkins, crutons, butter) if she would just have slowed down a bit, did an overall good job. She was friendly and chatty. We came in right before dinner rush and everything thing came out nice and hot and fresh. Great job on 'National Pasta Day' free nice size bowl of spaghetti for free!!! �� More...

For a short period of time Madison's had a restaurant on Manchester west of 141 and that is the only experience I have had here prior to today. I meet a friend for dinner in O'Fallon from time to time we ended up here on this Monday evening. I browsed the menu and went with the Pasta Feast ($13.99.) It included a small Combination Salad, an order of Cavatelli, and a piece of cheese garlic bread. Oh and regular bread and butter. I ate the whole salad and really liked the creamy Italian dressing on it. It's probably similar to a Talayna's dressing. When the pasta came out I couldn't believe the size of it. It was gigantic. I ate the piece of cheese garlic and about ¼ of the pasta. I couldn't press on. I was full! The noodles were al dente and the sauce was creamy and had a strong garlic flavor which is just what I want. Really great meal and deal! I'm sure we'll be back. More...

Our waiter, can't remember his name. but he has a tatoo of a train and clock on his left arm, was very accommodating. He frequently checked on our table, bringing ice, refilling our drinks, clearing dishes.... so friendly. The owner came to our table to check on us, remembering that my husband had worked for him YEARS ago. We love coming to Madison's. It's like we are coming home for dinner. More...

Big Sis and I came for lunch August 7. Our host was delightful. He was also our server.Big Sis got the Cannelloni ($10.99) -- Served over meat sauce; stuffed with beef, pork and veal;  covered with cream sauce; and topped with parm.I got the Burnt Sandwich, a house specialty ($12.99) -- Grilled beef tenderloin, covered with sautéed mushrooms and onions, and topped with melted provel. I skipped the French bread.Big Sis's dish didn't look all that big, but the cannellonis were stuffed full (no skimping), the meat sauce was meaty rich, and the cream sauce with parm was just plain ol' decadent. She ate one.My "sandwich" was tender beef cooked to order (medium rare) with solid good flavor. The taste of the mushrooms, onions and provel shone through individually and blended so well together with the meat, it was a masterful combo. I ate maybe half.So, we both had leftovers for another meal or two. More...

I have always enjoyed Madison's. My first visit was when I was 13 or so, a friend of mine and I rode our bikes 3 miles uptown to get some fancy french vanilla ice cream. I have never been here other than for lunch. My coworkers and I visit this place a few times a month and really enjoy it. The only complaint I have is that they brought the dipping oil out before we ate half the bread. Their combination salad is my favorite but it is very simple. They make their own dressing (and sell it also). Very often I order the zucchini sticks appetizer and I also ask for marinara saure, it's my favorite. More...

The manager herself helped with serving of the cake, and wrapping the top layer for the anniversary cake. I can't say enough good things about this place. We have been going to Madison's café since they were on Highway 94 in St. Charles. We were very excited when they move to O'Fallon, which made them closer to us. They have made us loyal customers with their excellent service, and food. This night just proved why we continue to go to Madison's and will continue to go to Madisons. More...

In St Louis everybody knows that the best house salad is at Zia's, on this side of the river it's Madison's a huge portion of fresh crisp lettuce topped with their creamy house dressing, shredded provolone cheese, a black olive, slice of tomato, and a pepercini. They offer a daily lunch special that usually falls in between $10-13. It will have an entree and the house salad. My wife had the lasagna and I went with the ham and bean soup with a huge slice of cornbread.  Of course you always have the option of ordering of the menu, one of my favorites is the clam bisque while my wife likes the stir fry. I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal here. It's reasonably priced with darn good food so give it a try. More...
