Delicious food, great service, and charming setting. A great place to meet up with friends and colleagues, also for family groups. Fabulous location, and terraces for outside dining.

With a wide variety of dishes (in groups of three items) for under $9 this is one of the best places around for good food at reasonable prices. Or, you can spend a lot, but great selection of French-inspired dishes, excellent pastries, wonderful desserts.

I've eaten at several La Madeleine locations, and one thing you can count on is that the food will be consistently good. Croissants are the best in the city. Breakfast is excellent, and there are always new things to try on the menu.

I wish I hadn't stopped to try this place. It was very disappointing. The food was cold, and the pasta dish that I had was awful. I will not come back and my wife had a very similar experience.

I came in the first week they were open. Never get tired of the Brioche, tomato basil soup, pastries and cappuccino. Almost 20 years of enjoyment!
