Order your meal at the counter and then it is delivered to your table. There are so many delicious and healthy choices of soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, etc. We all chose combinations, and everything was good and served at the correct temperature. The mushroom sauce for the flaky chicken friand was especially tasty. The portion sizes seemed just right... More

The wait staff were very helpful and polite. We were served promptly and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the ambience and the rustic decore. I would say that overall our experience has been excellent every time we visit.

We stopped here for a late lunch after visiting the Witte Museum. Since it was a little after 2pm, it was not crowded; however, it _was_ noisy. As usual, the food was good and the staff was friendly.

And on Sunday after church, there is a line forming at the door. The ordering process happens at the counter and everyone is friendly. They deliver your order to the table. The cranberry and pecan salad with chicken was delicious. Lots of pecans and cranberries. The light vinaigrette dressing complemented the ingredients. The cream of mushroom soup was as good... More

Large group for a retirement luncheon. The manager greeted us, was extremely friendly. The food was so good--it had been a while since I had eaten at La Madeleine but we'll be back soon! Good portions, quick service, yummy food.

I absolutely cannot find anything that I dislike in the menu. If it's your first time, you cannot go wrong with the chicken Parisian! This location has a good ambience and the staff there is friendly.

I just moved to San Antonio and I seriously can't stop going to this restaurant. The breakfast is so good!! I haven't eaten there for lunch or dinner yet, but I am planning on trying it eventually. For breakfast, I've gotten the parisian eggs benedict, the regular American breakfast, croissants, the egg croissant sandwich, and the crepes. Everything is so... More

This place tries to give out a French vibe, but the food isn't truly French. It is hard to tell where to go to place an order. They try to make it look like an elegant bistro, but it's sort of dark and strangely laid out. For the price, they really should start table service. The drinks are far away... More

When La Madeleine opened, it used to be better. We used to eat both at their Broadway location as well as North Star Mall. For the price, there are better places though its not bad, just pricey for the food quality .
