This is a charming restaurant in every respect. There is hospitality in every course and the food is very good. This was our first trip to this restaurant but it will not be our last. Make a reservation. Enjoy!

I have been to Madeleine's numerous times for dinner and events. I had my baby shower there and my parents' anniversary party. The food is delicious and the owners always make you feel welcome. The ambiance is classically French. I highly recommend this little gem....More

The wait is professional and well versed in the menu items and I can't say enough of how impressive the meal that was presented.

This is a very good spot for French inspired cuisine. The food is always very tasty and well presented without being too fancy or pretentious. I’d only the tired decor was updated this would earn five stars

Rich, delicate and scrumptious menu choices with exquisite service. The menu offers À la cart or a three course special that includes a wide assortment of customers' favorites. We did choose the three course with an added appetizer that consisted of flaky, beautifully browned, puff...More

Hospitality beyond normal standards. Excellent food, including the desserts which in may restaurants are afterthoughts. I've been eating at Madeleine's restaurant for over 30 years, ever since it was an inconspicuous place in Bergenfield next to a pool hall. The Northvale location allows space, a...More

Brought my mom and her best friend to Chez Madeleine for her 94th birthday. In 5 words or less, Delightful, Memorable and surprisingly affordable. The only thing that wasn't great was having to share the dining room with about 30 teenagers for a short time.

I believe the fixed price menu is on weekdays and not on weekends. One nice feature is that while the restaurant has a liquor license, on Tuesdays, they invite patrons to BYOB without a corkage fee,
