At Madeline’s, our unique approach to Euro-Asian Fusion cuisine results in a simplified elegance through distinctive and high quality ingredient combinations. Whether you prefer seafood, chicken, steak, or vegetarian dishes, Madeline’s has something to please everyone in your party. Our menu embodies the union of East and West with alluring fare such as Fresh Steamed PEI Mussels in our Black Bean and Ginger Broth, and our succulent Dijon and Asiago Encrusted Rack of Lamb, cooked to order and perfection. Not hungry enough for a meal, but in the mood for a nibble? Madeline’s has you covered with a wide selection of salads and starters to choose from, like the NAAN FLATBREAD WITH DUCK.  Come in and let our experienced chefs show you why Madeline’s is one of the best restaurants in Ithaca.


In the bar, our specially trained mixologists have created an extensive list of eclectic and innovative hand-mixed cocktails, as well as an accessible wine and beer list that boasts the best of our regional wineries and breweries. In the mood for something new? Try the GINGER PEAR SIDECAR with Clear Creek Eau de Vie de Poire and Domaine de Canton. Delicious and Beautiful! Or try our new twist on the classic Cosmo. Our Snow Cosmo starts with Stoli cranberry vodka, and finishes with a garnish of floating frozen cranberries. Tart and refreshing! Are you a Scotch lover? With over 50 to choose from, our well-educated bar and service staff can guide you to your traditional favorite, or a new experience.


 No trip to Madeline’s would be complete without a visit to our DESSERT CASE. Continuously on the “Best Of Ithaca” list for best desserts, Madeline’s Owner and Executive Pastry Chef, Teresa Miller, will engage your senses with luxurious and mouthwatering indulgences made from the finest ingredients. Ask your server for a recommendation; they each have their favorite!


At Madeline’s, we believe that service is an art that requires knowledge, experience, attention, and thoughtfulness. From a casual cocktail on our seasonal outdoor patio, to a large, celebratory event, our knowledgeable and well-trained staff strive to exceed your expectations, and make every occasion memorable. Our reputation precedes us, so reservations are recommended.



Located on Aurora Street’s, “Restaurant Row” on The Commons, Madeline’s is a short walk from Ithaca College’s South Hill area, Cornell’s College Town, or any of the surrounding downtown neighborhoods. Prefer to drive? Ample parking is available in the Green Street Parking Garage, just steps away from Madeline’s entrance.


Whether a leisurely afternoon of cocktails and conversation on our comfortable outdoor lounges, or a late evening candlelit dinner complete with wine and coffee service, our goal is the same; we strive to give you our absolute best. From cocktails to coffee, greeting to goodbye, your pleasure is our highest priority. Let us make your evening the best part of your day.
