Great place!Get 30% off anything your order before 7 pm. Great food and wine!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways AmazingEvery meal I've ever eaten at 43 North has been amazing and this time was no different. And you can't beat their 30% off EVERYTHING until 7p on weeknights.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite as alwaysAs one might come to expect from the Muramoto line of restaurants, this dining experience is second to none in Madison. The Muramoto fleet is and has been bringing foodies in Madison the dining experience that you'd expect to find in large cities without the big city prices. Every moment of the experience is done so well that you'll likely have lasting memories from 43 North. Duck and Scallops are best in Madison and I'm really picky about both. Halibut and Salmon dishes had flavor palettes that even Bob Ross would never mistake for happy accidents.
Also, we sat down and ordered before 6pm on a Saturday which meant that we received 30% of EVERYTHING—that's right, their happy hour includes entrées too!
Don't hesitate, you'll love it!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMChoice of small and larger platesWe love the fact that 43 North offers salads and entrees in two sizes. The small salads are surprisingly generous, larger than many side salads in other restaurants. The small entrees are perfectly sized for someone who doesn't want to overindulge and doesn't want to take home part of the entree. Actually, the food is so good that I think it would be difficult resist the temptation of eating most of the larger entree portion -- even if you thought you were going to bring part of it home!
This past weekend we tried the Ratatouille, listed with Bar Food, and it was quite wonderful.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a findClose to the Capital, this is a wonderful surprise. Everything was wonderful.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Food for Fantastic PriceThe food is always delicious and the portions are generous. I have been recommending 43North to friends since having dinner there a couple months ago.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious double dateRoasted dates, salmon, halibut, scallops, ratatoille, honey cake, chocolate tart, passion fruit dessert were all terrific.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experience, food above normFood was excellent. Great presentation and service. The lobster bisque, duck confit and halibut were special. Very noisy. Only downside was the Wagyu beef. Not the kobe beef marbling that I expected. Well prepared, but not seared at 1200 F. like a Chicago steakhouse would, or seasoned. I have had better cuts from Jennifer Street Market.
Overall, the kitchen staff truly cares about the food. It showed.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMApril 20, 2013 night out43 North has a very exciting menu, which I was pleased to see offered the items on each course listing in both small, sharable plates as well as full-sized. The wine list is compact yet interesting that very affordable. The waiter was very knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. All in all, a great experience!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there earlier on aWe were there earlier on a Saturday during their happy hour.

Came early (before a show) on a Saturday. Started out very quiet. Fairly loud by the time we left at 7:15. Still, not uncomfortably so.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAn incredible dinner experienceWe loved sitting in the back where they had tables enclosed in a smaller room. The ambiance was great and we felt like we were having a quiet dinner. The server was very attentive and had great recommendations for wine and dishes. (The duck was outstanding!) You can order smaller versions of the dishes or the full size. There were four of us and we ordered 4 full size dishes to share. After dinner we had the dessert sampler which was out of this world! I would highly recommend not skipping dessert!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Cuisine at a Reasonable PriceFusion/nouvelle cuisine at a nice price - made especially accessible by small plate options for entrees & salads. It is a tight squeeze in a small space - mostly a single, long row of close-set tables. So not as much intimate as lively once the dining crowd arrives. Also, being Madison, diners may dress from flannel to suits.
The main part of the dishes were lovely, but what really impressed were the accoutrements: a subtle cucumber broth that lingered in memory days later or an artichoke barigoule that teased and satisfied at the same time. Fusion often reads better than it tastes. This sounded good and tasted better.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe small plate option allowsThe small plate option allows you to enjoy a wide variety of their amazing selections!! It was a treat to go somewhere in Madison where they know how to prepare food. Finally a place that reminds us of dining out in San Francisco!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLook no further... Dine Here!This was my first time dining here… The staff was great; the food was great I couldn’t have asked for anything better. The toughest thing was deciding what to eat. I wanted to try it all. I will be returning in the near future without any hesitation.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I had a greatMy friend and I had a great dinner experience at 43 North on a Wednesday evening. The food was beautifully presented and service was excellent. Our favorite bar snack was the Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates. We also enjoyed black and green olives cooked in herb oil and a fresh warm baguette with compound butter and house jam. I enjoyed the Beet Curry Soup very much, and my friend had a very tasty Grilled Caesar Salad that she shared with me ~ it was so good! We loved that all of their items can be ordered as a small plate or large plate. Prices were incredibly reasonable because we dined during happy hour. Love that they serve local Wisconsin cheeses. Will remember this place for next time.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYou'll be happy with 43 NThe food was definitely 5-star! Our favorite starters are the lobster bisque, the salmon tartar, and the beet salad. The scallops are always perfectly cooked the game hen entree is exquisite! Overall, a great dining experience.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe first courses were fantastic,The first courses were fantastic, we felt the three fish dishes we had were a bit less inspiring.

Very noisy and difficult to talk with folks at your own table, especially with the loud music being piped into the room which seems totally unnecessary.
