Jessica and the rest of the staff at the Madison were wonderful. Jessica was practical, detail oriented, and so accommodating! They were flexible with the entire day and spent many months helping us prepare for our wedding. The space was great and the room was beautiful. The food was as fabulous as it always is at the Madison and again they were very accommodating with the menu. We were so happy with our day and how easy The Madison made it every step of the way!

From the moment we stepped foot into The Madison, we knew it was the place for our wedding. The decor is so elegant and inviting that it leaves you saying WOW. The food was delicious! Our guests continue to rave about our cocktail hour as well as our dinner menu. Many people have told us it was the best food at a wedding that they’ve ever had and we would agree! We have spent the past month talking about how we wish we could go back to that day and redo it over and over again because everything about it was PERFECT! Jessica, the event coordinator, is INCREDIBLE. Her vision and attention to detail is impeccable. We had so much fun meeting with her to plan the most AMAZING day. We always felt that she gave us the most sincere advice, which helped us to make confident decisions. We can’t thank Jessica and the entire staff of The Madison enough for making our wedding day such a WONDERFUL day! It will always be a place we can go to and have such fond memories thanks to you!

A-MAZ-ING!! Being from the area, we often would have dinner at their restaurant and attached bar. We always loved their food and the atmosphere, so when they opened their ballroom about 2 years ago, we knew that based on those two things alone, that was was where we wanted to have our wedding. We got engaged last year in March and immediately went there and two other places (just because we felt like we should) and without a doubt booked The Madison. We originally wanted a spring wedding but found out they book up fast for Saturday nights! We were able to book for 6/21/14. Jessica, the event planner was so great to work with she even suggested that we look at other venues before making our final decision, having that much faith in their venue was great to see. Throughout the process, Jessica and her team were very helpful! The tasting was superb!! Soooo much food!! They were very accommodating with what we wanted for our menu. Jessica knew how much we liked their crab cakes so she added them on for us and also arranged our food so that we could have a late night serving which consisted of pulled pork sliders and pizza (which our guests loved)! Good food was our main focus for the wedding and they definitely exceeded our expectations. When times got stressful with the planning process, Jessica was always able to make us feel at ease. Jessica added so many personal touches that we were pleasantly surprised to see when showing up on the big day. The staff was super organized and the night went smoothly without any glitches. Overall, the wedding was perfect! We have had so many compliments from our guests about how great the food was and how nice the venue was! There is sooo much more I can say but I would be here all day. I have not one complaint. The staff made us feel like royalty and if I could do it all over again, I'd do it in a heart beat. I hope that my review makes others want to go check it out because it's definitely worth it and you will f

We just had our wedding at The Madison and it was absolutely perfect! My husband and I researched many venues, visiting 6 others in the Central/South NJ area and none of them compared. As soon as we walked in for the very first time we knew this was the place. It felt as if we'd walked into a swanky NYC restaurant! This venue is gorgeous, and they have so much to offer; from the courtyard (if you want an outdoor ceremony), to the wine cellar (amazing photo ops & private prep rooms), Cafe Madison (perfect for cocktail hour), and The Madison Room (beautiful ceremony/reception option). All of it is wonderfully laid out and decorated. There is plenty of room for a large wedding, but also a comfortable, intimate setting for a smaller one. We are big on customer service and there was not a point in time throughout the year of planning that we were not 100% satisfied and impressed! Usually, they were one step ahead of us, making sure we had everything we needed for the big day. This was so helpful since we were planning our own wedding. Their experience and professionalism is second to none. During, and still after our wedding, we have received countless compliments from our guests about this venue; from the food, to the decor, and the impeccable service EVERYONE received. And the food, AMAZING! There are so many weddings that I've been to that were beautiful, but the food was just not up to par. This is not AT ALL the case here. Since the food is usually the largest bill, it's so important that you and you're guests are satisfied. Well, satisfied is an understatement! It was not only presented wonderfully, served hot, but was also absolutely delicious! If we could do it all over again, we would choose The Madison. So often people second guess aspects of their wedding, but there was not a point in time that we felt that way about our venue. We could not have picked a better place! Thanks to all of The Madison staff our wedding day was flawless.

OW! The Madison was beyond amazing. The planning up to the big day was made so easy by the extremely professorial staff. My phone calls and emails were always answered promptly. It was a pleasure working with Jessica Conner, the event coordinator. We were looking for a venue that could accommodate us for our ceremony and reception. The Madison was a perfect fit. The venue is GORGEOUS. The food is another reason we decided on the Madison. My husband and I live locally and have always raved about The Madison's food. So many of our guests commented on the amazing food. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to a couple looking for a beautiful wedding day. I wouldn't have changed a thing about my wedding day, and a lot of that how perfectly my wedding executed by The Madison. :)

I wish we could give ten stars to The Madison on here. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding look no further. From the moment my then soon-to-be husband and I walked in and sat down with Jessica (Director of Sales and Catering) we knew this was the place for us. Working with Jessica was like working with our best friend. Jessica's experience, professionalism, and dedication to her work and her clients made planning this wedding a stress free experience. She was there for us in every aspect and we now think of her as our friend. We owe the perfection of that night to her. She introduced us to Jack, the Executive Chef, who immediately understood our desire to impress our guests with amazing food from cocktail hour to dessert. He and his kitchen staff knocked it out of the park, as did the wait staff and the bartenders who never stopped impressing our guests throughout the entire evening. Teresa and Stephanie, our co-captains for the evening, took care of us and our guests, kept the pace of the evening rolling, and were just exceptional. As you can tell, we cannot say enough good things about The Madison and their staff. So many times we heard that night from our guests "Best. Wedding. Ever." They were right. It was.

A time and place we will never forget

Thank you to Jessica and the oustanding team at The Madison. When looking for a wedding venue, we were thrilled when we learned that The Madison had facilities to host our wedding. We have experienced many outstanding special dinners at Cafe' Madison and have always enjoyed the experience. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. There were several fantastic rooms (The Madison, Courtyard, Wine Cellar) that were availabe to us to host both our Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the same place. The atmostphere is both sophisticated and elegant. Jessica was open to allow us to create a look and vision that was all of our own. The food was amazing and our guests throughly enjoyed themselves. Many of our guests found a new place they plan on returning for dinner and future events. Hands down, it was the right place for us for the most memorable and fantastic night of our lives.

Thank you.

I planned a wedding in a few short months and I don't think I could have pulled it off, let alone with such amazing luster, if it weren't for Jessica and The Madison! Jessica was so wonderful to work with. She's very knowledgeable about the industry and knows how to add those touches that make things extra special. She was very flexible with us and made sure we got everything we wanted...and more!
Everything at our reception was amazing. Beyond amazing. The food, the decor, the staff...every touch was perfect! My guests were all wowed and continue to provide compliments about this venue. To start, the food at The Madison is very delicious. The cocktail hour was filled with an impressive display of fresh, good quality, hand made food. The reception area decor and set up was stunning. The standard linen options and chairs at The Madison are of a high quality and much more elegant than the typical 'hall'. We were married in Dec so The Madison had simple and classy holiday decor items that added a beautiful touch and blended so well with the feel we wanted.
At the end of the night, the staff told us not to worry about a thing. They packed up the leftover wedding cake to hold in their fridge and took care in packing up all of our items (toasting flutes, seating chart, centerpieces, etc) to lock in a room until we could pick everything up the next day.
This venue is such a steal for it's affordable prices and high quality in a beautiful setting. There were no short cuts. They went above and beyond and my husband and I could not have been happier with our experience at The Madison.

I love/loved everything about The Madison. My husband and I fell in love with the place as soon as we stepped foot inside and so did our guests the day of! From the beginning of the process, Jessica, the catering manager/wedding coordinator was awesome. She was kind, down to earth, and made me feel at ease. She answered my many emails/phone calls as the date approached and came up with out of the box ideas to make our day unique. The day of the wedding she was there overseeing all the moving parts and our day was perfection. I want to re-live everything! I am hoping someone I know has a wedding at The Madison so I can fully enjoy the amazing food! Which is another thing to mention...usually wedding food is just okay. The food here is awesome! Chef Jack is great and he is very nice as well. I could go on forever here, so I will stop! I recommend!

The Madison is a true gem! Obviously the venue itself is gorgeous, given the patio, wine cellar, ballroom! But you have to have excellent service to make it perfect and they did. Jessica coordinated every detail perfectly, met with us numerous times, and knows how to run things smoothly. Theresa, the banquet manager, ran the dinner perfectly as well, guests were very impressed. of course the food was over the top excellent. We were super pleased with how everything went. We had a ball and so did our guests. Everyone is raving. We so love the Madison, Jessica and her staff that we hope to have some dinner parties there very soon! Thank you to everyone at the Madison!

We would also like to highly recommend Cakes by Erika. Erika created our wedding cake. We had selected a wine theme and she created a beautiful cake. She provided excellent service and a very enjoyable tasting of various cupcakes prior to our selecting a traditional yellow cake with buttercream icing. OMG! this cake was incredible, super moist and the icing tasted like wedding! seriously, everyone including us loved this cake. Kudos to Erika Smith.

Jessica coordinated every detail perfectly, met with us numerous times, and knows how to run things smoothly. Theresa, the banquet manager, ran the dinner perfectly as well, guests were very impressed. of course the food was over the top excellent. We were super pleased with how everything went. We had a ball and so did our guests. Everyone is raving. We so love the Madison, Jessica and her staff that we hope to have some dinner parties there very soon! Thank you to everyone at the Madison!

We would also like to highly recommend Cakes by Erika. Erika created our wedding cake. We had selected a wine theme and she created a beautiful cake. She provided excellent service and a very enjoyable tasting of various cupcakes prior to our selecting a traditional yellow cake with buttercream icing. OMG! this cake was incredible, super moist and the icing tasted like wedding! seriously, everyone including us loved this cake. Kudos to Erika Smith. Read less

I had my wedding here just a few weeks ago and I must say I could not be happier with the way that things turned out. Jessica Connor who is the Director of Catering was fantastic. I must say I was a mess about this wedding since I did all of the planning alone, Jessica really helped me with any questions and problems no matter how big or small. My guest had nothing to but good things to say about the venue including the food. When I walked into this venue almost 2 years prior to my event I looked at the place and instantly fell in love. It was exactly what I was looking for but the thing that sold me was Jessicas personality. She was very open and honest with me from the start which is exactly what I think a bride needs. The food, the service the staff everything was amazing. I would highly recommend.

The Madison was the second venue we looked at for our daughter and her fiance's wedding. After looking at the venue and going over the details with Jessica (the Director of Catering & Sales), they had made a decision before we left the building that this would be where they would get married and have the reception. There was no need to look any further. Jessica worked with us from start to finish and was very helpful through the whole process no matter how many questions we had for her. The entire staff was great, the food was absolutely fantastic, and we could not have asked for a better day (even the weather was perfect).

Thank you Jessica Connor and your team at The Madison for a fantastic wedding day! The venue itself if truly Riverside's hidden gem. We instantly fell in love with the venue upon first seeing it as it was the perfect intimate setting for our smaller 80 guest wedding. Jessica was a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism and experience helped ease our anxieties leading up to the wedding day. She was very patient with my mom and I who at times can be very particular :) On the day of the wedding everything flowed perfectly, not one thing went wrong!! Our guests absolutely raved about the food and service. Many of them said it was the best table service they've ever experienced at a wedding! We would recommend this venue to anyone and cannot wait to visit for dinner every year on June 9th for our anniversary!!!

We loved our wedding ceremony and reception at The Madison. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves during the ceremony and cocktail hour which made it feel very intimate and special. Jessica was great to work with during the planning process and on the day of, everyone was very accommodating from the wait staff to the bartenders. We and all our guests thought the food, service, and venue were all great. What more could you ask for? I wish I could do it all over again at The Madison.

As mother of the bride I just had to write a review to say how absolutely perfect my daughter's wedding reception was at The Madison. Our guests were gushing with compliments. "Fabulous" was the word. The food was perfect, the room was beautiful and everything went as planned. Working with Jessica was a pleasure and stress-free; the staff were attentive and pleasant. We could not have asked for a better day. Thanks to everyone at The Madison we have wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

We had both our ceremony and reception at The Madison on 7/14/12. We booked it when it was not even finished, so I did have some reservations. However, it was the best thing that could have happened, and we are so lucky to have had such an amazing place for our most special day. Jessica and Diane and the rest of the staff are amazing and made the experience what it truly was. Chef Jack and his team made delicious food that all our guests continue to rave about. Everything was perfect and there is not one thing I could have asked for to have been better. The entire staff was kind, and attentive to every need. They made us feel as if my wedding was as important to them as it was to us. They took all the stress away from me so that I had the very best day of my life. Thank you!! - Heather and Brian

Stop what you're doing, go to the Madison right now, and trade your first-born for their Gouda Mac and Cheese bites.

The 200 character limit is killing me since there are so many good things to say. Let me get the one negative out of the way first: over six months out, we occasionally had a bit of difficulty with responsiveness. But once we were in crunch time, emails were promptly answered. Anytime we did have questions throughout the process the answers were thorough and helpful.

On to all the good: they were flexible in terms of packages so that we could find something that fit our price point. Once we set foot in the space (hiding in Riverside, NJ) we were amazed at the decor and general swankiness of the venue. We couldn't believe that it was one of the most affordable spaces we looked at - it was on par with places charging twice as much (quick, book them before they realize!)

On to the food- as I said previously, you should be there eating right now. During our tasting, we were amazed at the quality of the food we were getting. The appetizers were unique and delicious. After a giant cocktail hour, the four-course dinner was amazing - the chicken saltimbocca was divine (even at 11 PM when I finally got to eat it after we got back to the hotel) and everyone was raving about the salmon. Dessert was no less impressive, and I need more friends to get married here so I can relive this meal weekly.

Day of, we were treated like royalty, with attendants specific to the bridal party and myself - Thomas was my hero on several occasions, making sure I had water, food, or champagne as soon as I asked for it. Jessica, our coordinator, was around to check in throughout the night. Everything was set up exactly to our specifications, as we knew it would be.

As you can tell, our experience with the Madison was nothing short of amazing. Do NOT overlook this place! We were so fortunate to find it, and can't wait to go back!

The Madison was a beautiful venue for our wedding. We held both the ceremony and reception here and were very pleased. The decor is beautiful and the food is delicious! They hold one wedding at a time so we had plenty of attention. Jessica Connor, the director of catering, worked with us throughout the planning process and was very helpful with answering our many questions and accommodating our special requests. Jessica also guided this nervous bride and groom through our ceremony and into the reception with ease. We received a lot of comments from our guests about the excellent venue and great food. The one thing we would have changed about our day was the handling of the cake cutting. Instead of the manager, a server initiated the event but we felt that we had to explain to him what we would do, rather than the other way around. We didn't really know what we were doing, but we had to ask to have the cake moved from it's display area against a wall out to the dance floor. The timing was also a little off as we were ready to begin but he hadn't returned from the kitchen. It ended up working out fine, but we had several minutes of confusion. All in all, we were very happy with the Madison! Looking forward to returning for dinner in the restaurant. :)
