    We were very disappointed by Field's at Wilderness. Our entree's were served with little presentation. The side dishes, especially the twice-baked potatoe, appeared to come out of a box in the freezer. Two in our party had steak which was good but served with no presentation at all. One said "its a hunk of meat on a vast white plate." One of our party ordered the Pork Chops with Carmelized Onions and Apple. One large, flavorless porkchop appeared on the plate with pale, steamed onions which seemed to have applesauce stirred into them. When our party member mentioned the lack of flavor and lack of carmelizaton to the wait staff they shrugged and issued a robot-like apology. With the average price of an entree' being $35 at Fields, one would hope for a better response to a meal that was not as described on the menu. Fields does make a wonderful Loster Bisque - come for soup and salad and you may not be as disappointed as we were.

    Food was fantastic. A place to go without kids to have a quiet intimate dinner date. Service was spot on and food was amazing. We had an appetizer, few drinks, steak for him, salmon for me, and each had a dessert. We expected to pay way more than we did for such spectacular food! We will be back, on our next weekend away without kids!

    From the moment we stepped up to the coat check to walking out the door this was one of the best dining experiences we have had. The staff is friendly, attentive and has mastered being there without being there. The food was simply spectacular! The only fore warning I will leave is to check on prices ahead. Dinner for the two of us dinner including salad, a bottle of wine, a mixed drink and a shared desert (there was no way either of us could have finished one alone) was $140 without tip. As someone who does not dine like this every day all I can say is I have no regrets and will be returning.

    You should know: our bill for four with 3 top shelf drinks each was about $230 without tip. That said, it was worth every single penny. Cocktails and wine were top notch. Lobster bisque was outstanding. Beef and fish were equally superb. Salads were beyond generous and delicious. Even bread and breadsticks were extra good We were there Saturday night and enjoyed live piano and vocal music. The pianist/singer was wonderful. One of the best meals I've had in a long time. And I am pretty gosh darn critical... Especially at this level.

    We decided on Fields for our 32nd anniversary dinner and everything was perfect. My husband ordered roses through the Open Table reservation site and they were on the table as we were seated. They were beautiful, then our waitress brought us complimentary champagne. We were there early on a Thursday before it got busy, so it was quiet and very enjoyable. Our steaks, bone in Filet and Porterhouse , were perfectly prepared. I added the Fields steak enhancer to my filet, I would definitely do that again. The service was outstanding. We could not have asked for a better experience. We will be going back again!

    Not sure why we had to wait a half an hour for our table when there were plenty if empty tables and we had a reservation. The Old Fashions we had at the bar while waiting were excellent though. This place is huge and a little too gimmicky for my tats but the food was good and the coupon we had made the prices a little more in line with the quality. Would go back.

    I was impressed with the customer service and general environment of the restaurant but the food was not impressive. There were no signature dishes and I make better steak than what was served. I was so disapointed as I thought this was going to be a great "food" experience based on internet reviews. Not worth the money and unfortuantely won't be going back:-(

    My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary here, and had a wonderful dinner! We each got the 8 oz. filets, which were absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. And for dessert, we got the Butter Brickle Torte, which has to be one of the best desserts we have ever had. If we are ever back in the Dells, we will certainly be returning to Field's!

    For one of my birthday parties, three other parties and I celebrated at Field's/ I was told later that the waiter, waitress, concierge, etc. had been told it was my b.day and expected a complementary dessert. Guess what? Since I was treating, I paid for it!!!! Wouldn't have ordered one, ordinarily. So, be aware that most Madison restaurants treat!!

    Our party of six, four adults and two children thoroughly enjoyed the superb service and great food. Most favored was the prime rib which definitely was outstanding. The kids were tickled by the refolding of our napkins and the warm towels after dinner. The key lime torte for dessert was awesome!

    My wife and I dined here for my birthday on Tuesday, and we were very pleased as usual. We are locals and always enjoy our experiences with Field's and their staff, and they even provided free desert given the occasion. Highly recommended for quality steaks, seafood, craft cocktails, impeccable service, friendly staff, and don't forget to order the Lobster Bisque - which is a signature to this fine facility. If you've never been here before please give it a shot next time you're in town - you won't be disappointed.

    Spent 6 months on a work assignment in the Dells area as a young professional in the mid 90's and fell in love with the barbecue ribs (and their homemade sauce) at their old location on Hwy 13, when I believe they were called Fields Steak and Stein. After more than a 20 year absence, now returning with our children for a vacation weekend, imagine my surprise in ordering the same meal and getting the same fantastic service and taste! The meat falls of the bone and the sauce is a pleasant mixture of sweetness and tanginess. In the interim, I've had barbecue ribs in many places, all over the US and other locations, but these rival the best I've had. I'm sure the other menu items are just as nice and served with the same quality.

    I recently took my girlfriend out to dinner as we were both in need of a romantic night alone together. Before going I heard great things about Field's but that it was expensive. I wasn't sure what to expect. Field's offered the greatest restaurant experience we have ever had. The atmosphere and food is second to none and it ended up being the best date we have ever been on. We will return again.

    Very nice, the food was fantastic. I was surprised there were so many young children there, but it wasn't noisy. If the children were unruly I would have been disappointed. This seems like the kind of place you'd go to get away from the noise and confusion of the Dells. The lobster bisque was out of this world! Service was attentive without being intrusive. Great evening out!
