Otto's Restaurant and Bar
Back to the basics and valuesIt was ten years since the last time I was at Otto's. I should not have waited. I wasted many a trip around town with bad service, over priced meals and parking problems. If you want value, great service and over the top taste - go back to Otto's.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved by all attending (10)Reservation process was outstanding, personal and polite. Service by Amy was above and beyond the call of duty. Her attitude and professionalism was outstanding. Food and beverages were tops, too. In short a lovely dining experience for all ten of us.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall GreatI had guests from California and Boston and they loved the food and atmosphere. Great place for entertaining guests from out of town!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie gives 2 thumbs up!I recently had a client dinner at Otto's and it was a great success. The food was delicious which makes everything go so much more smoothly. The service started off a bit rushed, but once we explained that we weren't in a hurry, she adjusted the tempo and was wonderful. The outdoor patio was perfect. I would recommend Otto's to any foodie in Madison. The Sea Bass will never disappoint.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome OttosWe always try to eat at Ottos on special occasions, such as anniversaries, birthdays, etc. We have always enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and of course, the food. We are never disappointed, and always look forward to our next visit. Our only sad and negative experience was when ....for Valentines Day the reservation list was full and we had to eat elsewhere. Ottos will always be our first choice.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I hadn't beenMy husband and I hadn't been to Otto's in over 10 years and we were so happy that it was still the wonderful restaurant we remember. The food is very good, the atmosphere is great and it is perfect for having conversation while eating. The wait staff was fantastic and friendly and very attentive. The prices make sense too. We will be returning again soon!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our favoriteThis is one of our favorite restaurants because you can count on good food and excellent service. It's pretty much hit or miss in most Madison restaurants as to whether the service will be good or not. Otto's has never failed. They have the best service in Madison. Truly a joy to go there.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA local gem!Otto's has been a Madison destination for many years. Unfortunately until recently I haven't taken advantage of the dining experience at Otto's. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced considering the quality of the food presented. It's also locally owned and not a chain restaurant. It is now high on my list of places to recommend in the Madison area.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThree friends and I met forThree friends and I met for dinner at Otto's. We were placed in a corner in the upper area and were able to catch up on news, etc. in a quiet, pleasant atmostphere. All of us had worked together years ago and try to meet as often as we can. We love to go to Otto's because we are not rushed, it is relatively quiet and we can have a wonderful dinner.

What was especially nice is that at first we got seated next to a large table filled with children (not what we had in mind for our special evening), then a gentleman came and asked if we would like to move to another table. We were delighted. Great move on his part. Always love the food at Ottos and look forward to dining outside!
