Went there Valentine's evening and were seated next to a table of eight very loud drunk and 20 year olds who we're constantly using the f word tapping on the fish tank and engaging and other obnoxious behavior for a supper club. None of the staff seemed to notice it and the greeter and seater could have put it us... More

We stopped here after arriving in Madison to stay the weekend. We had the blue cheese chips which were fantastic! Our dinner meals were good but nothing that knocked our socks off.

A few weeks ago we wanted to eat here but because we were too slow in making reservations so we couldn't get in. When the opportunity arose to be near Madison again we thought we'd pop in for lunch. There were two couples in our group and we were quickly seated and greeted by our waitress, Ellie. We ordered cocktails... More

Spent more for lunch than normal, but worth every cent. Only negative was the long walk after parking the car, but that justified ordering dessert.

We were seated promptly for our 6:30 pm reservation. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The seafood trio with cranberry rissoto was excellent. The scallops, shrimp and salmon were done to perfection. My friend had the salmon and he said it was seasoned perfectly and cooked to his liking and he would order it again.

Excellent drink selections and the breakfast and brunch menu was very good. Pleasantly surprised. And the prices were less than some of its competitors. We had the breakfast jambalaya and the crabcake Benedict. Both were excellent.

Went out for lunch for wife's birthday. I had the steak enchiladas and my wife had the grilled shrimp. Both meals were served with rice and vegetables. Both meals were hot and very tasty. Our server even brought mini ice cream deserts on the house to help celebrate my wife's birthday, an unexpected treat.

I had a little over-the-holidays reunion with some old college friends and chose this venue based upon some friends' recommendations. I was very pleased with the choice. We all fit nicely into one of their clubby booths, and we were seated rather quickly, even on a busy Monday night. I like the vibe immediately, the layout of the bar vs.... More

Met friends for cocktails and appetizers. Food is good but it is pricey! Drinks are mediocre. some of us had Tangeray and tonics and they seemed pretty watered down for using Tangeray! They have an outstanding autumn squash soup. They've had it for at least several years and it is always a drawing card. Delicious. Usually a busy place after... More

My son picked this place out for his birthday dinner, and we came up for a visit. We started with their 3 cheese appetizer, which was tasty and was served with olives and apple slices, as well as small slices of bread, which worked well with the cheese selections. The soups and salads were pretty good overall - my wife... More
