Love the Madison's tradition. I always know I'm going to have a great meal at a good price! My husband and I recently had dinner there and it was, as always, delicious. I had my favorite Julie's bow tie pasta. The pasta is cooked perfectly...More

Held a business dinner for about 25 people in a private room. Food and service was good and no noise problems. Cons. Restrooms in basement.

Madison's is only a few blocks from the Missouri State Capitol. The food is always great, whether you are having a salad or the Special of the Day. We go for time with friends and special occasions. Reservations are taken but not always necessary.
