Elegant dining in lovely community. Great for special night out or anytime. Located in charming plaza in beautiful Anthem. Waitstaff is kind. Nice music & atmosphere. Food is really great!

I gave this restaurant 5 stars for one reason; it is the best you will find in Anthem. This isn't saying much as Anthem has no fine dining within a 10 mile radius, and the country club has mediocre dining at best. With that said, Madelyn's is a good restaurant. The food is as good as you will find in some of the better establishments in Scottsdale, although at times I feel the chef is trying too hard to fit eclectic dining, his dishes are generally good. Where the place misfires is in ambiance and service. Although the servers are very nice, they have very little training in formal dining. However, I can forgive both the lack of service and poor decor because I understand that all the professional servers are in Scottsdale, and Anthem is a bit boring anyway. Any night you don't feel like driving to Luc's, Madelyn's is suitable as a replacement.

Excellent cuisine in the Anthem area. The ingredients are fresh, the cooking is some of the best we've ever had. Decent wine selection and the waitstaff is outstanding!
