Madlon's is a restaurant that for the most part has good selections, reasonable prices, and excellent food. It should be a five, BUT. They don't always open on time, don't adhere to their hours, and have their young children in the restaurant. The kids follow them from table to tsble, cry and play loudly in one of the booths, and... More

This is a restaurant in transition. But we didn't know that when we made the reservation for July 4th weekend. Even if we were one of only three parties in the restaurant for dinner on a holiday weekend and even though the server told us many classic French dishes listed on the menu were not actually available and even though...

THREE weeks prior to our visit, I called to make a reservation, and a very rude, and abrupt woman answered the phone. She acted like I was bothering her. I made the reservation for Monday, December 28, since Mondays are one of four days they are actually open. After snooty and rude woman took my reservation, I confirmed all the... More

We have enjoyed Madlon's before, and the food is amazing. It is prepared by a chef. If you love crepes, blintzes, etc., you will love this restaurant. However, the last time we ate a Madlon's, there was only one person working. That is, she was waiting tables and preparing the meals. She was very pleasant and attentive, but there's only... More

Had breakfast here with my wife on our anniversary weekend getaway. I opted for the endless waffles which had 20+ options to choose from and I was able to select a different variety each time. Very cozy decor and friendly service was also noted and I will gladly return in the future.

This is Big Bear fine dining... of sorts. I thought that they had sine unique items. However, I haven't rated this as my top choice in Big Bear. I'll have to try more items here to know for sure.

Enjoyed an amazing brunch here. Loved that the food is cooked to order and it is truly slow food. The atmosphere is relaxed the food is delicious! The crepes are light and delicious; the salmon Benedict came with house smoked salmon that was amazing.
