Great food, great service, big wine pours! The bread with creamy butter was delicious. Filet mignon was so tender and flavorful and the stuffed chicken breast was savory and cooked to perfection. I wished we had saved room for dessert!

Wine Tasting Room by Day & Restaurant by Night! I think one of the best ways to get the full experience of Madeline's is to visit our open daily wine tasting room where you can try some of the best boutique wines that the central coast has to offer and then finish off your custom wine tasting with dinner in our full service dining room! We thank you for spending a few moments on our website and hope you enjoy all that the central coast has to offer. See you soon! David - Chef/Owner
