Good, safe, nice neighborhood. Highly expensive, and ver white upper middle class. Good for kids, Garfield (the nearby HS) is pretty good, one of the better schools in the city.

I walked my two Vizslas all through Madrona over the years, and got to know various neighbors and small business owners. It's a very nice place to live, quiet
at night, close to urban amenities.
A lot of places aren't open very late, but there's some amazing food in Seattle! Lots of options from around the world.
