According to community leaders, Madison Valley’s boundaries are Madison on the north, Lake Washington Boulevard and Dorffel Drive on the east, 23rd Avenue E on the west, and Denny Way to the south.

Today the neighborhood is festooned with small parks, two greenbelts, a pea patch, three schools, and craftsman-style houses. A cozy upgraded business district boasts several of Seattle’s best neighborhood restaurants, and the area is specifically known for its French restaurants.
