Madison Club was a beautiful venue for our New Year's Eve wedding but there were a few things that could have bumped it up to five stars. First of all, working with Emily was outstanding, but Emily is no longer there. We were told several things by someone else who is no longer working with Madison Club and then later recanted (i.e., we were told that Christmas decorations could be taken down considering we were renting the whole space -- two weeks before our event when we happened to stop in to see the space, we were told that they could not take the Christmas decorations down). Mary hung up on me when we were discussing the matter. Luckily our wedding planner was amazing and agreed to take many of the decorations down for us -- however, the Madison Club made her put the decorations back up for "corporate events in January and February." The food was just okay -- I tried the chicken crostini appetizer and it was not good and then I had the chicken for dinner -- even though we had menus printed and the chicken advertised was with a smoked tomato sauce, my chicken appeared without any sauce and was very dry. I heard things from other guests that the chicken was not good but I heard from several guests that the beef was outstanding. Service was great, actually amazing -- our dinner for 210+ people went off without a hitch and we were actually ahead of schedule by the end of dinner, which really impressed me. I saw nothing but exceptional service from the staff at Madison Club, from the wait staff to bar staff to everyone in between. The charges afterwards were also a point of contention: in our contract, we had an indication that the bar staff would notify us once we reached $1750 in drinks after our drink package ended for us to make the call whether or not to continue hosting the bar. No one ever notified us, so we assumed we hadn't reached that amount. However, we received a bill for the bar for almost $4000 afterwards.

I can't say enough good things about the Madison Club and it's super professional staff. We worked with Emily to plan our wedding and she is sensational. They pay attention to every detail and no question is too silly to ask. I have had the best experience with this venue and would recommend it to any Madison area bride.

We absolutely loved this venue for our reception! We worked with Chastity, who took great care of us before, during and after the big day. She always responded quickly to emails and was great with helping us plan the flow for the evening. We can't say enough good things to describe the pleasant experience we had working with her. Unlike other venues who were only interested in details of your wedding, she actually made us feel like we were friends. She was also great about working with our budget. It made all the difference in the word while planning. Additionally the venue is beautiful and photographs extremely well! The food is delicious and doesn't taste like banquet food at all. In fact all our guests kept telling us how much they loved all the food.
