The best sea bass I've had in a long time. I was a nice thick cut and the sauce was delicious. Service was great and the dessert was just ok.

Nice atmosphere, the staff and service are excellent. My wife and I had the special, pan-seared halibut;the fist was dirty and tasteless. The rice was cold and the vegetables slightly over cooked. Too pricey for such a mediocre meal. We'll not return

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
