Made a reservation through OpenTable for the Bon Fyre Grill. Arrived and were seated immediately -table was waiting. Extensive drink and food menu. Not overly expensive. Ordered the walleye and friend had steak. Portions were a good size. And came promptly. First time eating walleye was nice but steak was really good. Service was excellent and atmosphere was fine. Have been there before when happy hour was in full swing and the bar area does tend to get noisy but this occasion was perfect.

Your hostess Luz did a great job seating us and making us feel comfortable. The food was great with reasonable portions and prices. One suggestion would be to do something with your main doors to make them easier to open. This is the case with both sets of them. They are extremely heavy and difficult to open.

I made a reservation and was greeted to blank stares by the host and hostess. Our table was in a terrible location with no atmosphere, and it took 15 minutes for a server to finally bring us water. It could have been a bad night, but it felt like a systemic problem with the management. It was very pricey and one of the signature cocktails was basically orange juice with a tiny amount of booze.

The food was great and flavorful, we had reservations at 6:45, but didn’t get seated until 7:20. I had the bailey’s pie it was ok. I would come back. My husband had the fish tacos and I had fillet mingon/Oscar style twice baked potato and a crab cake. Our server was really informative. My friend said they have a great happy hour too

I made a reservation about a month ago for Valentines Day. I showed up on the 14th and was seated right away, which is always a great thing. I was then impressed with the memory of my waiter who seemed to memorize every little detail about the menu and the many many special that were going on; from alcohol to food!

I started off with the Spinach Dip as my app. It was very good and show up 4 minutes after I had just place the order. My food however, that took about 35 minutes afterwards to come. So if you do go, make sure to get an appetizer to hold you over until you get your entree.

My food was very good!

I recommend getting the Woodfyre Mixed Grill which comes with ribs, chicken, and my favorite, New York prime rib! Delicious! I ordered a side of grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes, which were very delicious.

The only downside is their dessert menu which is simply consisted of just 3 poorly chosen items. However, I will still be coming back again and again! My food and my service was delightful and made for quite a pleasant evening!

We have dined here for the past four years since moving to Madison. It has been a reliable favorite until last year. There have been subtle changes to the food. The portions have reduced and dishes have changed in that there is a reduced quality, in our opinion. The atmosphere is still warm and inviting. That the the proximity to our home have kept us coming back.

A welcoming place with friendly and knowledgeable staff. My wife had salmon while I had a filet. Both came cooked exactly as we requested (medium well done on salmon, medium rare on steak.
Baked potato was out of this world; veggies were very fresh and great tasting. A dessert (Gran Marnie something) was fantastic and something we will have to return to have again.

Great night celebrating a 50th Birthday. Service was attentive and pleasant. Food and drink were great-- consistently good, large portions and nicely plated. Awesome spot by the fireplace. And the complimentary dessert for the table was such a lovely and thoughtful touch. We will continue coming back! Thank you.

Appetizers were great - entrees so so. Waitress did a fine job with the food service and meals were delivered in a timely fashion - however it did take forever to get noticed and to receive our drinks after ordering. My second beer came well after I finished my meal so i sent it back - they did take it off the bill and offered free dessert as compensation

We had a nice dinner , I don’t think the server was friendly, gave us any options or understood timing in terms of when to take things or refill. She did not give suggestions and although she shared she was new may have tried to engage with the table a little more
