“You name it, they have it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

Even though it is a Mexican themed restaurant, everything is good. We have made it our "breakfast place of choice" for several years. The omelets are awesome. The service is great and the owner, Pablo is often there----this contributes to all around excellence. Whenever we have out of town guests we take them here, especially for breakfast or lunch. They have a "sister" restaurant in downtown Redmond called Diegos Spirited Kitchen. Dinners there and atmosphere great.

Great food , service, and drinks. Love the appetizers, Lobster taquitos I Believe. Frequently get those to go for a quick easy dinner for myself.

“Not worth your time or money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

The first clue should have been the empty parking lot....

The fresh guacamole mixed at our table was good...

The rest of our food had too much cilantro and cumin...overpowered everything else...

The salsa tasted like taco mix with cilanto and cumin added to tomato sauce, and the chips were not even warm...

Very disappointing...and we all really love mexican food...

“Will never spend money here again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

Madeline's used to be my favorite place in town to eat but after the service we recieved the last time, I will never spend my money there again. A group of us went there for breakfast and the server knew we were on a time schedule. It literally took 45 minutes to get menus. The table next to us was seated at the exact same time and got their food before we were brought menus. We waited so long we ended up asking for our food to go. It is overpriced as well. Ask for a side of pico de gallo and expect to pay $3 for it. Never again and we used to be regulars. Oh and I agree with the other post about rounding up a penny for your meal. I was told they were waiting for new menus but the was in November...

“Quirky little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

We were in Redmond for a day and ate here on the recommendation of our hotel hostess. Breakfast was great. Large portions of excellent omelet. They appear to bake rather than fry their omelets. Breakfast specials can't be beat for value and quality. Dinner wasn't nearly as impressive. Service was slow and the food was plain by Mexican standards. A staple of Mexican food is the rice and refried beans. The rice tasted like butter fried rice, not Mexican. It's flavor was good, but not what I was expecting. The refried beans were too soupy, but I will give them an A for flavor. The beef burrito was beef and a tortilla. The enchilada was like the burrito, with some very bland red sauce. I would recommend for breakfast anytime, but dinner needs work. The ambiance was slightly toward the romantic and consistent with what you would expect from a restaurant in this price range.
