Upscale-style dining in the valley

Madeleine Bistro adds an upscale organic vegan menu to Los Angeles' offerings. Proprietors David and Molly Anderson hail from Real Food Daily, where David was an executive chef, but this is an entirely personal offering, featuring a menu that changes with the current fresh ingredients.

Lunch and dinner served, with take-out available. Parking is available in the back.

See website for current hours.

A vegan dream. This restaurant has every element of fine dining perfected. The food was exquisite. The wait staff was extraordinary. We were greeted warmly and given attentive but not overbearing service. Our water and coffee cups were never empty. The flow was perfect with beverages, soup, entrees then dessert coming out in perfect timing. Flawless service.

The ambience is ideal for a bistro. It's the type of place where you can feel comfortable if you're dressed up or if you're in jeans. They acheive this by keeping the wall decor simple (the office-like ceiling tiles help too) but using upscale dark wood tables, candles, cloth napkins, low lighting.

To the owners of Madeleine Bisto, my only request is that you open a restaurant in Chicago so I can eat here all the time.

Everything we had was delicious! Not one thing was a disappointment. The fried seitan dish, the lemon rosemary seitan dish, the caesar salad, the asian tacos... and whatever you order, you must make sure to get the mashed potatoes and gravy because they were amazing! The desserts were delicious, too- we had the chocolate souffle, the coconut cream pie, and the rasberry cheesecake. The cheesecake was the best of the three and the best vegan cheesecake I've had. The restaurant is spendy, but worth it for high quality delicious vegan cuisine that is hard to find anywhere else. Just a note: if you are going for the vegan "chicken" and waffles, that dish is only served at brunch.

Exit 101 at Reseda and turn West on Ventura; restaurant is on north side of street, kinda hard to find. Look for a black awning.
