Bonfyre American Grille
Very good experienceAlways a favorite for the food and atmosphere. Not always impressed w/ service though...some snobbery in the service staff, not always welcome...6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWas very pleased with ourWas very pleased with our recent dining experience. Wait staff was awesome.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBonfyre Always a WinnerConsistently great service, food, drinks and atmosphere.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great ExperienceThe food was very good, and the service was outstanding!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMcreatve cuisineUnique and consistently variety of salads, sandwiches, and main courses. Very filling so I seldom get to dessert.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRotisserie Chicken is the BEST!Bon Fyre has some really great things on their menu, but for something you might not expect. Try the Rotisserie Chicken that come with Bon Fyre Mash and the best green beans. Always fresh, always cooked to perfection. I recommend the herb chicken with a side of the BBQ sauce to dip.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice!I asked for a quiet space to eat with a first date and I got just that!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizer surpriseMy wife likes Spinach and Artichoke dip, and I am not fond of artichokes, but that dip is fabulous! Highly recommend having it.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a business lunchWe sat outside and it was a perfect day for it. The squash soup was the perfect starter! I was there for a business lunch but I have been here when it is packed inside and it is a lot of fun! The noise level obviously goes up a bit at the bar, but at the tables it is fine.
Enjoy!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNice atmosphere. Nice varietyNice atmosphere. Nice variety on the menu. Large portions. Steak was very tasty by overcooked, it was medium well, not medium. Green bean side was either canned or extremely overcooked. In general all five of us felt that some parts of our dinner were overcooked.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat First ExperienceWe all enjoyed our food and service. Very friendly and knowledgeable waiter. Food was excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Dinner!This was my second time eating here. The service and food was awesome. Wouldn't expect anything less.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality foodNice mid range restaurant with quality food and environment. Professional and friendly staff and a good beer selection. The only two knock I have are that the grilled salmon only came with risotto and no vegetable side on a HUGE plate (kind of awkward), and when I asked the waitress if she could turn on the fireplace next to our table she said it was broken. Seems like a place named Bonfyre with a huge flame logo would put a priority on having the fires lit ;) Those things aside, I will definitely go back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodWe have never had a bad meal yet!! Only problem is it is quite noisy so is sometimes hard to hear someone not sitting right next to you.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be backWe celebrated my daughter's UW graduation and could not have been happier with Bonfyre. Service and food was outstanding.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMServer was attentive but notServer was attentive but not overbearing. A professional. Food was great; but staff made restaurant excel.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSleek and Modern AmericanaFood and Service were perfection, staff very friendly and informed. From the moment you walk in, there is an understated chic-ness without being pretentious. Even though we came early, they kindly informed us the table was just being cleared and we could sit immediately if we wanted.. We started with the Maytag Blue potato chips and some Truffle Fries delish! Entrees were generous in proportions and our group of 8 was served very timely along with cocktails (try the Dark and Stormy) and the beer selection very good. Our waiter made it all look effortless. We were celebrating a birthday in our group and they took the time to put a candle in the Chocolate cake ( another must try!) I will look forward to going back again!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFast service and good food,Fast service and good food, will definetly come back5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for 8The service was great. Wait staff very friendly and informative. We started out with a couple of appetizers. We had the bleu chips and the fondue with jerk chicken, grapes, green apples and artisan bread. FANTASTIC on both counts!! Three of us had the rotisserie chicken, which was so moist and delicious. The firewood flavor is outstanding. Three had steaks, all very pleased with their meals. One had shrimp skewers and was delighted with the different flavors on the plate. The last person had the seared scallops and was overwhelmed with how good it was.
My side caesar salad was great. They grilled the romaine. Awesome flavor. I will definitely come back and try something different every time.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experienceMy wife and I have been here several times and always had a fantastic experience. The food has always been unique and delicious. The prices may seem high at initial glance but the quality of food is high and the portions are generous. Another thing worth noting is the service. The staff have significant knowledge of the menu, specials, and recommendations. They are attentive to your needs, fun, and polite and we've given this feedback to the manager on shift that night as well. This visit was for a family group dinner with 7, and they were able to seat us by window with large view and space per request. The host/hostesses are also polite and predict wait times accurately when needed.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a graduation partyThe food was varied enough for everyone at the table. The pizza was great! Loved the cheese platter! The portions were large and delicious, giving you a bang for your buck!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good will return.I typically go to bonfyre for family events, its a great place for larger groups. The food is consistently good and its never too noisy to carry on conversation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service could be betterWe had reservations, but felt rushed throughout. Food was good, ample portions. So so value. Dinner for 2, no alcohol, we spent $100 with tip. For that I didn't expect to be wedged next to a noisy family with kids crawling under the table. Busy, noisy. Our table looked directly out at the grungy underside of the belt line overpass. Hmm, NOT ambience. Men's room poorly stocked, cluttered with garment bags from wedding (?) party.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality, tasty food.The menu had a little of everything but was not overwhelming. Food came out at the right pace and temperature was perfect. I was worried when we pulled up and saw it was part of a "mall type" place...but it was very good. A little noisy and cramped, but it was prom night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun date night placeEven for early dinner the restaurant was crowded but we had a reservation so were seated right away. Interesting drink menu, really liked their version of Old Fashioned. Had the chips as an appetizer and they were very good. Rather large portion filled us up so we opted to split a salad and Thai pizza for the entree. The Thai pizza was different, but good and not too spicy. Split the chocolate cake and it was good. Will go again for the BBQ.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood job all aroundVery good food and outstanding service. We will definitely be back and will recommend.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebrating girl friends birthdays!celebrating girl friends birthdays! perfect place to go to celebrate!!!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a groupA group of friends met at Bonfyre and we all loved our meals!! The drinks and the service were also great. We had a large group and we didn't feel that we had to wait long for service!!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!Healthy, delicious menu options. They are always tweaking their menu to reflect the flavors of the season.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was great. We hadDinner was great. We had drink, dinner then went to a meeting. Came back to Bonfyre after our meeting to debrief - thought we'd have a drink. We sat at a high top table in the bar area discussing our meeting and not one server or bartender asked if we wanted or needed anything. I thought that to be very strange. After we were done talking we just left. Thanks for letting us use the table I guess.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Setting!Our first time there! Excellent food, beautiful atmosphere, romantic lighting, great service! I can't wait to be back in the area to visit again!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice evening for allVery nice evening for all those in our party of six. Thank you!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNew to MadisonOur first time at this establishment. We had prompt and friendly service. The food was exceptional. The drink specials were well made and refined- the Irish Margarita and the Hennessy new fashioned were superb. Atmosphere was modern, and it was very busy in the early evening, though this did not impact our service. The beer and wine list was good. We will most certainly be back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, Good food/serviceMy husband and I dined at Bonfyre on a Friday night and it had a great energetic vibe. My husband had the herb rotisserie chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables. He said the chicken and vegetables were fantastic, however the mashed potatoes were underseasoned and "nothing special". I had the balsamic salmon with saffron ricotta. The salmon was cooked to perfection, however was again underseasoned. Overall, the food was pretty good but had some room for improvement. Our service was also pretty good. It took a bit for us to get our first round of drinks, but otherwise she was attentive. Overall, a good experience and the atmosphere is fantastic.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe make it to Bonfyre a fewWe make it to Bonfyre a few times a year. We look forward to it every time and are always pleased. Seasonal rotations to their menu make each trip a bit different for us.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a favoriteThis is one of my favorite restaurants in the Madison area. The food is always good and management tries to keep patrons interested by changing up the menu every now and then. This time I had the ahi tuna burger, which is outstanding, and the green beans as a side. Yummy! My husband had the new scallop dish, which he thoroughly enjoyed. He also had the squash soup as a starter. That's been on the menu since day one and is one of the best squash soups I've ever had. It consistently has just the right amount of spice for a kick and some tart granny smith apple chunks. Delish! Service here is always good and this time was no different. Our server was a male who was very friendly and attentive. No doubt, we will be back again soon.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst time, very nice, goodfirst time, very nice, good food and great specialty drinks4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe FIre & Ice bloody maryThe FIre & Ice bloody mary is spectular, although it's a meal within itself -- and it's the special on Sundays! The brunch menu is limited and the food items on it are nothing special, so I reccommend ordering off the regular menu.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!I LOVE Bonfyre!! I've had nothing but great experiances there! The managers are wonderful and kind, and the Servers are attentive and friendly. The food there is always delicious, enspecially the steaks, which are almost always cooked to perfection. Its a beautiful resturant and well kept.
I'd reccomend this resturant to anyone.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFound Bonfyre Grille (randomFound Bonfyre Grille (random pick) in Feb. Have been back twice since then.

Great pricing4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!My wife and I have eaten here many times. If you happen to be seated near the bar it can be a bit noisey, the overall atmosphere is still great. The food is excellent, probably the best woodfired grilled in Madison. The woodfire adds a great taste to the meat. Overall, a great place to eat, it is our favorite!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the fish taco's and houseHad the fish taco's and house salad - both were excellent.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe keep coming back for theWe keep coming back for the delicious herb rotisserie chicken.
