A recent Michelin Guide review of Madcap:
Upscale yet friendly and approachable, Madcap is one of the Bay Area?s top destinations for contemporary dining. The superb culinary skills on display should be no surprise considering that Chef/owner Ron Siegel worked at some of the West Coast?s more renowned kitchens, including The French Laundry.

Madcap reflects much of his background, but at its soul, this is a humble hangout, striving to highlight the best local and seasonal ingredients with little fuss. Elegant, yet comfortable, the service here doesn't miss a beat.

Both à la carte and fixed menus are offered and are sure to feature some of the kitchen's more surprising concoctions. While each composition is likely to change with the seasons, every bite remains well crafted, balanced and teeming with unique flavor combinations.

Highlights include heirloom tomato soup with wedges of tomatillo, crunchy croutons and cubes of charred beef, as well as crisped shrimp atop an array of cucumber and melon. Sonoma duck breast composed with stone fruit purée and the season's greenery is lean and velvety.

Desserts, such as the caramel pot de crème with a double hit of almond crumble and ice cream, are simple perfection.
