Mad Chef Kitchen & Bar
excellent place and excellent food. Great location.
Great food excellent server
I will definitely return want to check out the a happy hour
Creative menu with well prepared dishes. A little too noisy in the dining room
The tomato bisque was very flavorful and a nice portion. The ‘wedge’ salad toppings were good and the pomegranate added a nice burst of flavor but the iceberg lettuce was tasteless with little color. I would have preferred the toppings on a bed of spring greens. This salad was a bit overpriced as well using iceberg. The service was efficient and kept the ice tea filled. The restaurant itself has a nice ambiance and unique decor. This was my second visit.
Fun night. Friends birthday. Would go again
we had a Birthday dinner for my twins. Everything was great. the food came on time, was warm, and fresh. My granddaughter enjoyed her dinner, which was off the kids menu. The drinks were yummy as well. It was a little noisy, we sat in the back in a booth. We were not to bothered by it.
We will be back!!
Great food. Excellent service! Was a little loud given the small restaurant.
Every entree was a hit! There were four of us and we ordered the Bronzini special, the Seafood pot, Sesame encrusted tuna and Lamb rogout. Everyone was super happy with their food. The waiter was attentive to one of us who had food allergies, answered all of her questions and made suggestions which entrees would work for her.
It is an energetic restaurant, you have to speak loudly. Also, I wish when specials are described, the price would also be mentioned. As a guest, it is always uncomfortable asking, why can’t it just be part if the description? People understand that it is a special and that it will cost a little more than the regular menu.
We will return to this restaurant, great food!
Excellent meal and our server Jasmine was outstanding!
We had a great meal, fun night with friends, service was excellent, many small plates made for an eclectic menu, recommend highly
First time there and I enjoyed it a lot. It was an afternoon later lunch so it wasn’t very crowded. The service was really good . I had the Reuben tacos and really enjoyed them. I would definitely go back. I would like to see how the service is when it’s crowded.
Lamb tacos are usually excellent but they were dry today. Soup of the day was excellent though! I can always count on a safe gf meal here.
The food and service was amazing. This was our first visit and we loved everything. Well crafted cocktails, sweet potatoes soup and tuna taquitos are a winner and paella is juicy and well seasoned. Large portion had a ton to take home. Jasmine was our server and she is AWESOME! Entire staff very attentive. We look forward to our next visit!
Great service on behalf of Oscar, beautiful atmosphere. Modern but not overdone. My date and I started with the “Boring Caesar”, which was great. I had the bellini, which was kind of heavy on the syrup, but for $5 I wouldn’t dare complain. My date ordered my original choice, the lamb ragout, which was absolutely perfect. Well-seasoned & nicely cooked pasta! I got the Fifty-Fifty burger, a blend of beef and bacon topped with onion jam and arugula with provolone. It was definitely worth the splurge. We shared the dulce de leche panna cotta for dessert, which was sublime & not too gelatinous. The service was friendly and not overbearing, and we were surprised the restaurant was not packed on a Sunday during brunch hours! Can’t wait to come back for dinner soon.
Excellent service, food was good, especially the stew, shrimp needed deveined and dessert dough was undercooked in middle, would definitely give another try
Oscar was our server and he was absolutely amazing, patient, attentive & personable! We will definitely be back.
The food and service are amazing! Oscar was our server and he provided world class service! The MAD filet is delicious! Definitely get the empanadas also! We shared a wedge salad also because their salads are very big. We will definitely be back many times!
Disappointing visit. Had been really looking forward to visiting Mad Chef with my wife for a while and unfortunately while our server was kind and attentive, the food was really disappointing. The chorizo cheese appetizer was swimming in oil from the chorizo that lacked flavor and was not even warm. The dinners - fifty fifty burger and fish and chips were OK at best. We will likely not be going back.
Fish and chips are amazing! Love the tartar sauce-very different.
We went to this restaurant when they first opened. The Drunk Mussels were a complete departure from the recipe this time around. Original recipe had perfect notes of coconut and lemongrass which was amazing. Not so much now, and they've added a kick to it which didn't help. Everything else was good.
First visit. We'll be back!
Had a nice time but our server was overwhelmed. Food was great and dessert made everyone smile.
It was a lot of fun! My friends and I wanted to just do a lite brunch and mad chef kitchen delivered!
Great food presentation and taste. My husband and I want for the first time on 2/15. We had reservations and was seated quickly. The only reason I did not give a five star for service was because the waiter took a while. However, the general manager checked in with us and served us our drinks pretty quickly. Overall, we had a great time and our meals were delicious.
Mad Chef is a nice place and the food is good. I would not say the food is outstanding. Servers are super nice and knowledgeable, but our server disappeared for a while after we got our food. Prices are good.
The service, food, and ambience was all great. It’s definitely almost a hidden gem. I wish I heard about this restaurant when it opened. I will definitely dine here again!
We had our Valentine's dinner at the Mad Chef and it was exceptional. The staff was friendly and our waiter very well-versed on the menu, the preparation of each entree and special. Our orders were absolutely delicious, well-portioned, and arrived at the table hot as well as in a very timely manner. Our waiter checked in appropriately to ensure that our glasses were filled and that we were pleased with our selections.
This was our first visit to the Mad Chef and it certainly will not be our last. Clearly one of the best restaurants in Ellicott City - excellent food and drink at very reasonable prices.
Great, seated immediately. Cocktails were very well done. The fixed menu for Valentine’s Day offered a great set of selections. Service was good, if not A little too attentive. The server was very good, the host Checked in too many times. Not a big deal, just a slight distraction and disruption to our dinner conversation.
Wonderful Valentines dinner
Great meal, great service.
Awesome wedge salad and the grilled cheese was one of the best I've ever had.
Great food and drinks, vibrant bar area. Service could be a little more attentive.
I want to like this restaurant. The food is good, but there always seems to be some sort of service hiccup. The first time we came here the server did not know how to open a bottle of wine, did not have us taste it, then poured nearly half the bottle into a single oversized wine glass. This most recent time they refused to substitute a vegetable for fries on a child’s plate and instead I had to order $8 green beans for my daughter: I also ordered a beer which never came.
This is clearly a chef driven restaurant, but the chef needs to step out of the kitchen and focus quite a bit on the front of house:
Very good food, well prepared. Great service. However, lighting was a little bright, so I wouldn’t call it the most romantic place. Tables were a little tight too, so not terribly private. Overall good experience but I don’t think I would choose it for a date night.
So many delicious options to choose from. I would definitely return - even though this is an hour away from my home.
This was our 1st time here. We will return for the Service, Food & Ambiance. Our Server Jasmine J. really Made our evening. She was so knowledgeable & welcoming. We highly recommend the Guacamole, Beet Salad, Scallops, Godiva Ice Cream, and BREAD PUDDING. Also Go on WEDNESDAY for 1/2 off Wine.
Our server, Jasmine, was very knowledgable and professional. All four of us enjoyed the food we chose, and it was prepared as requested.
Delicious, high quality food from a creative menu. They also do not rush you, which we appreciate. With all the hard surfaces the noise level was very high.
Great restaurant week menu! Server was training but did an outstanding jig!
Delicious food. Courteous, knowledgeable and attentive service.
