I can not say enough nice things about the Madison Club! The building is beautiful, food delicious and staff are amazing! Chastity made the whole planning process as stress free as possible and our wedding was flawless. If you are considering having your wedding here - do it - you won't regret it!

Our guests were amazed by the beauty of the building, the food was excellent, and the service was top notch. Although a bit pricy, we knew we were in good hands from day 1, and everything turned out just perfect. The only 2 small issues we had the day of the wedding (turn down the a/c and move a guest dinner table) were taken care of within minutes. Emily is a wonderful person to work with and always put our interests first. The only small negative was that we had too many people to fit in the same room for dinner, so any guests over 144 are sitting in-between rooms or in a 2nd room (with a limited view). That said, our guests didn't mind as they were closest to the bar :). Definitely recommend!

We had such a wonderful time at our wedding at The Madison Club. The team did a fantastic job and made everything so effortless for us. Everyone raved about the beauty of the space and the food.

It was great that The Madison Club provided food, cake and setup stuff. It greatly reduced the number of vendors we had to deal with. They also essentially acted as a planner for everything that happened from the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception.

Overall, they made our wedding a delight.

The Madison Club was the perfect venue for our wedding. Emily was incredibly responsive to my hundreds of emails and small changes along the way. The day of, they made sure that we were taken care of and had food and drinks brought down to us while we waited to enter. The entire waitstaff was polite and efficient. The rooms looked amazing and the food was delicious. I would strongly recommend that any bride chose the Madison Club for her wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the way our day turned out.

The Madison Club was a great rehearsal venue. We chose the blue room overlooking the Monona Terrace, Lake Monona, and the capital. I couldn't ask for a better location. The staff were rigid about including placecards (I didn't want the families to feel like it was extremely formal), so I had to go with a buffet dinner. However, they were able to get me the food I wanted for a great price. Our appetizers and most of the food was great. The lamb was a little dry, and they didn't bring out steak knives until I asked for them. Overall, I was quite happy with my rehearsal dinner at The Madison Club.

The Madison Club provided a beautiful space for my wedding. The space was so beautiful that it required very little additional decoration, which was great. The food was also very good. The Madison Club also has it's own pastry chef, and it was very nice that she was able to make our cake for us, as it was one less thing for us to coordinate on the day of the wedding (and the cake looked great!).

The staff did a good job during the planning stages and during the reception, but unfortunately, the staff at the club really dropped the ball AFTER the wedding. They lost a lot of the items that we brought that were rented and needed to be returned the following day. It just seemed like they weren't communicating well with one another --- ex. one person put a vase "away" and left, and nobody else could find it. It was an incredibly frustrating and time consuming to get all of our items back after the wedding because nobody could locate anything that we had brought, and the only plus side is that all of our guests had all left and didn't see what a complete mess everything was. It was really an unpleasant situation to deal with following the wedding. Considering the price of of hosting our reception here, I simply expected a higher quality of service than we received.

We visited a couple of reception sites before the Madison Club, and we knew instantly that we really liked it. Our decision was finalized when we visited a wedding show, and all of the vendors had genuinely great things to say about it. We thought that it was a great sign that people to go to weddings every weekend thought that it was a great choice, and we are really happy that we chose the Madison Club. Emily and the rest of the staff were really helpful throughout the planning process, the space is beautiful, and the food and custom cake both exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend the Madison Club to other couples.

The Madison Club was a fantastic venue for our daughter's wedding ceremony, reception, and dance. Our daughter and her new husband live abroad, so had to depend largely on mother of the bride (me) to plan their event. The event planner we worked with (Emily) at the Madison Club was exceptional and very detail-oriented. She took all the stress out of the planning process for me. We did not have to worry about a thing! Food was great, cake was beautiful, rooms were beautiful, and the staff throughout the months, weeks, and days leading up to our event were very professional.

Absolutely, hands down, the Madison Club was a fabulous venue for our wedding. We were able to customize the menu, choose the rooms we wanted, and made sure we were happy every step of the way. Their event coordinator worked with us from start to finish and was present on the day of to work with our vendors, brought me tea in the dressing room, every detail was attended to with perfection. There were budget minimums but after comparing them with other places, they were about the same. We did have to become club members, but the benefits have outweighed the costs. The food was fabulous, the service was meticulous, and I didn't have to solve any dramas or last minute problems. The pastry chef rivals other Madison chefs - it is a step up to use theirs! Lastly, we weren't that thrilled with the traditional vibe of the place, but were able to rent the restaurant which we decorated with a 50's club atmosphere. (I've had/been responsible for 5 other weddings, and hands down, I would recommend the MC.)

Everything was perfect! Staff was very easy to work with. The only snag was the size of the rooms. Great for 120 with one dining room or 200 using two dining rooms, but a little awkward split if you have 140 guests.

Initially, we had a rough start, but through some staff turnovers I was extremely pleased with working with Amy Perry. Her organizational skills were extraordinary and she really did everything possible to support a beautiful day. We left some things behind and she's reached out to make arrangements for a pick up. She truly looked at all aspects and brought things to my attention which I had overlooked. I couldn't have asked for a better place and people to work with.
