This infamous little bar with a shady past and maybe present, actually serves an amazing cheeseburger. A lot of people come here not for the food, but for the scenery which on Thursdays usually peaks at a crazy and frenetic high; the ATM in the lobby doing a furious business. The hunters are the new breed of techno dweebs. Their... More

The main course was the hanger steak tender and cooked perfectly with morel mushrooms. The service was spot on and the chef came table side... More

The menu has changed,and the restaurant does not serve burgers anymore. The bar does,but not the restaurant. The lack of truffle fries is why I am downgrading my review. The staff was ok,but I had my mouth watering for a burger,and was denied. The view is very nice,good locale. I would go back to eat at the bar next time,to... More

Our expectations were high for Madera. We went there for lunch. The restaurant is pretty with a lot of business lunches going on. Service was great and we never felt rushed. I had the chicken. It was ok. The white and dark meat were put together in a roll shape. I do not like dark meat, but the server said... More

Rosewood hotel in Menlo Park is really a special and lovely place and the madera restaurant is terrific for breakfast and lunch, especially on the deck during a warm Spring or summer day.

Private room dining with an excellent choice of beverages. The food was divine. Three choices per course were offered and certainly did not disappoint. Loved 'the twist' on menu choices which made the courses exciting and certainly not average. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced staff tended to our every need. Fantastic food, service and ambience. Will be back again!

Thank Gwabht
