We had dinner at Madison's in Jefferson City. I was excited for the visit. The owners were very nice and were active on Facebook messenger with my questions. I could tell they were looking forward to our visit. We arrived and it was cozy and busy. We were seated right away and had a very nice server. She was friendly and informative. We had a delicious sampling of bread and butter/oil. Husband ordered the tortellini and I decided on the lobster mac & cheese. My husband's dish was incredibly delicious. It was flavorful and the pasta was tender. I was disappointed with my lobster mac and cheese. The lobster was nice and the pasta was cooked perfectly...but my complaint was the sauce. It was way too spicy. Nowhere in the description did it mention the sauce was spicy. I just expected a simple cheese sauce that is normally is prepared for macaroni and cheese. I am not for sure if this was a preparation error or if that is how it is really served. You can see in the photo it is darker due to the spice. I would not have ordered it if I would have known since I cannot do too much spice. I would suggest mentioning it in the menu. Other than my dish, we really did enjoy our visit. Our service was fantastic. I would give them another try with a different menu item. Thank you.

LOVED this place! Great food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff.

Very good menu with lots of choices. But I was hankering a burger and, upon recommendation, swapped in the provel cheese. Yum!!!

Appropriately priced and nicely located downtown.

Madison’s has so many choices to choose from. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. I love the house salad!!! It’s a great place to celebrate a birthday, graduation, or just to get together with friends and family.

This is one of our favorite places to visit when in the area. Their lasagna is one of their signature dishes and one of our favorites. Great service.

I raveled back thru Jefferson City again this week and made my usual stop at Madison's. Still ordering the same thing and it doesn't disappoint. House salad an tortellini. I'm always so full when I leave but thanks to the wonderful service given by Sarah, I had enough to take for another meal. I appreciate everything you do to make this a special place!
