We enjoyed the Easter Brunch
We enjoyed the Easter Brunch this year, but the selection at the brunch seems to be less each time we go to a "special event" brunch. The usual staples are there (seafood, salads, meats, cheeses, breakfast items, deserts, etc...) but the selection seems limited compared to the past. As an example, a few nice cheese selections (I recall 4 or 5) but no "adventurous" ones that they have had in the past. Still, a very enjoyable brunch!

Fantastic food and group space
We had a group of nine and had our own table in a private room at no additional charge. The waiter was attentive; the food was excellent; and space was perfect. A great time was had by all!

I've come here for the Mother's Day brunch three times in the past 8 years. It is truly wonderful. The food options are amazing, and the ambiance makes me feel so special! My kids love it too (especially the ice sculpture) and have tried everything, including the artisan cheeses and the raw oysters! I heartily recommend the chophouse for special occasions like Mother's Day brunch, but it is also my favorite place in town for celebratory steak dinners.

We were in town for our son's graduation from the UW. We had a terrific dinning experience at the Chophouse. The service was excellent; the food superb! The only downside--it's a long way from home for us--we live in Atlanta! If ever in Madison again, we'll definitely be back! Go Badgers!

Recently, I was part of a group lunch at the Capitol ChopHouse. I was pleased that our group was able to eat in a private dining room for eight people. It is so much more conducive to conversation than sitting in the main part of the restaurant when there is a bigger group!
The food was excellent and so was the friendly service. One person requested her hamburger be cooked "medium-well" , but it came "medium-rare", so the customer received her lunch free-of-charge. Other than that, each member of our group was well attended-to and thoroughly enjoyed the lunch ordered!
The ChopHouse consistently serves excellent food. Their "Chop" salad is one of the best around!

Wonderful Food/Excellent Service
I had dinner at the Capitol ChopHouse while on vacation. A lone diner, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable by all staff and seated immediately at a premium table. Leo, my server, was personable, knowledgeable, and attentive without being intrusive. The food was a great bargain. I come from Boston and would have paid twice as much for this lovely meal. I enjoyed a glass of sparkling wine, followed by the beet salad (excellent recommendation from Leo), the ribeye rare (they cooked it correctly), fresh snap peas and roasted potatoes (again recommended by Leo and great!). I capped it off with lava cake and tea. I know for sure that I will be returning to Madison and I will come back to the Capitol ChopHouse. Worth every penny.

Good stuff. Great server (think his name was Rene), great food (restaurant week menu). I will say that the ramakin for the clam chowder seemed a tad small, but that's my only complaint.

Great food - really enjoyed it!
My friends and I were seated in a small room away from the general noise of the restaurant which allowed us to have good conversation. The food was wonderful, the desert was great. I am a repeat customer and I will be back. Thank you!

Not good value
My wife and I stopped by for restaurant week. Based on past reviews we expected to be wowed. For the same money you can do much better.

Though it was a quiet Tuesday eveninhg, the menu had great specials and while I have eatten here before it has always been steaks. This last time I had the scallops and I was bowled over with the preparation. They were seared well and were not chewy. Very moist an dflavorful. My dinig partner and I shared two sides which were really enough for three. The service was excellent.

Surf and turf celebration
We thoroughly enjoyed the savory filet and strip steaks on this our 2nd visit to Capitol Chophouse. For every course the food is consistently delicious. Rene is a friendly and competent server who did a wonderful job helping us celebrate a milestone birthday of my DH. Other selections to try: the king crab legs--"the best I've ever had" stated my youngest son/crab leg connoisseur.

Good, as always!
They were very busy, and that made lunch service a little slow. The food is consistently good, and we enjoyed it very much.

Everything was right in line with what we expected. The server was very friendly, attentive and helpful. My word and I both had the sea scallops which were quite good. My sister had the NY strip which was well prepared. The wine selection wasn't amazing but it was fairly good. The atmosphere had a semi-formal feel. It was a lite pricey but I think it is what you'd expect from a steak & seafood place.
All and all, a very good dinner.

Excellent Food and Service
The food here was absolutely delicious and their twice baked potato was amazing. The service was non-invasive nor distracting but the wait staff attended to every need without having to be asked.

Exactly what I was looking for
I travel a lot for my job and a great restaurant with truly high-quality, amazing food is hard to come by. This dinner exceeded expectations: Top-notch filet and a superior clam chowder.

Good but Pricey
Everything was very good, however, the lamb chops were $40 and only get 2. I'm not a genius, but that's 20 bucks a chop. The flavor was excellent, just wanted more.

We received a reminder phone call regarding our reservation, and while I appreciated the reminder, the tone of the call was the only negative in this whole experience. When we got the call, the woman sounded very bored with the whole process. She reminded me of our reservation, then stated "Remember, you have a 15 minute window. Miss that window and we give your table to someone else". While I understand the need for the process behind it, the tone and delivery method could be improved upon. Our server was excellent, and the steaks cooked incredibly well. The sides were very good, but the steaks were the star of the show. Overall, it was a very nice experience, given that the restaurant is in a hotel.

Great for business lunch
Slightly upscale option for a business lunch. Wait staff a-tune to the business flow of a lunch (i.e. not interrupting too often or at inopportune moments). Excellent soup and salad combination options.

This is a fantastic restaurant. My wife and I try to eat here at least once every month or two because we adore the food so much. The service is always fantastic, and the food follows suit: Always perfect. Highly recommended.

Excellent food. Thanksgiving treat!
Buffet had many wonderful choices - so many I could not sample them all. All items were well done. My daughters, grandson and I loved the food, service, and atmosphere. A thanksgiving brunch to remember.
