We went in thinking this was another overrated hot spot. We couldn’t find one thing to improve! We had the chef’s tasting menu and every course was perfectly done and so tasty! Our waiter Johnny was attentive, knowledgeable, yet unobtrusive. We were full at the end but not stuffed. Great wine selection and Kim the owner-host checked on us three times. Upscale atmosphere without a hint of snobbiness. Best meal we have had in five years! Call way ahead. Hard to get in, and now we know why!

Ron Siegel's cooking is sublime. Every bite has both surprise and expectations exceeded. The tasting menu is a great value and a very delicious and fun adventure.

What a great find. Super nice unpretentious people and delicious food. The tasting menu did not disappoint. Each course built on the other like a fine ballet. They welcomed us with warmth and pleasure in sharing their love of food.

An unassuming presence on a local thoroughfare, Madcap is modestly hiding greatness. This is a restaurant easily on par with the best in San Francisco. Nothing is missing. The interior is delightful, subtle and comfortable. The staff is cheerful and efficient as well as knowledgeable. The food is simply outstanding. This is not a place to come for large portions, but given the number of smaller portions you will inevitably eat, you will not go home hungry. The dishes are beautiful, extremely inventive, and simply delicious. The wine selections are ample and well chosen for pairing. Truly there is nothing to note that is not well done. This is the sort of place that I'm sorry to say has become known. It is now a bit difficult to get a reservation, but it is worth the advanced planning. A night at Madcap with good friends is a night that reminds us of the brilliance of pairing wonderful meals with wonderful conversation.

Ron Siegel's new place is a worthy successor to his previous efforts. We visited in its first month of opening and again earlier this year. Siegel's creativity continues to shine and it's clear he is personally involved in nearly every dish that leaves the kitchen. Plating is beautiful and each dish is a small work of art. I wish some of the courses were larger but nevertheless this is a great value for fine dining.
