Kevin...great waiter. Knew when to step back and let us visit as we celebrated an early Mother’s Day.
Food is dependable. The Fig and Prosciutto flatbread pizza...VERY good!

We have date night each week and we are trying new restaurants. It was a good night and vibe. It wasn’t really busy which was great and they did a great job with social distancing and the waiters wearing masks and gloves. Food came out quickly and was plenty!! We got ahi tuna salad and 12oz steak.

Had great food and plenty of it. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We had a nice time chatting with the couple two tables away, there had to be space due to COVID, regarding desserts. We plan on coming here more.

Drinks were way too strong. Meals underwhelming in taste, but good on portions. The appetizers were delicious though. Desserts basic, but alright.

The bartender was extremely nice and our drinks were some of the best we've ever had! Our waiter (Kevin) was excellent as well. We love dining at Bonfyre...especially for the Mort's pot roast and jambalaya.

We haven't been to Bonfyre in years and only ended up going because they could fit our party of 7. I'm thrilled that we did! Everything from the raspberry mojitos (many restaurants don't carry mint year round. No idea why), to our appetizers of cheese curds and bacon wrapped shrimp, to the rotisserie chicken, ribs, and steaks were outstanding. When they claim to have fall-off-the-bone ribs, they're not kidding. Stupendous! And gotta mention the service. Jen was fantastic and diligent and very patient with my hard of hearing dad lol. We'll definitely be back.

They were out of the Valentine's Special, which was the main reason for choosing this spot. Reservation was for 6:30pm, which was still early in the dinner service to be running out of a special.

Bonfyre Grille always does a great job whenever we visit. The food is excellent and the staff well trained and friendly. We last visited on a weekday afternoon and felt very welcomed. We continue to be especially impressed by a particular staff person who doubled as our bartender and table server on this day. She has helped us in the past as well. I do not recall her name, but she is always kind, friendly, and accommodating. We have noted it previously and certainly appreciate all her efforts. She is representing the company very well doing outstanding work.

The waitress was friendly. Unfortunately, that was the highlight of our evening. Our dinners were disappointing. It also is exceptionally smoky in the restaurant. We will not be returning.

We had a delightful date night at Bonfyre. We started with the fig martini, which was very yummy and a Manhatten. Service was great, pan fried walleye and a miso bowl was delicious. Thanks Bonfyre for a memorable, fun evening!

Dinner with friends on Friday night. We were glad to see there were a lot of people at the bar and the restaurant. Every one was socially distanced and the staff were wearing masks and gloves.

Service was attentive and paced perfectly so we were never wanting. I highly recommend the house bourbon old fashioned. Hand made and very tasty. My friend is a rib fanatic and he says these are the best in Madison. Sweet sauced and falling off the bone tender served with fries and slaw. Morts pot roast was another hit. Very tender and flavorful roast served with tender crisp asparagus and carrots with a side of mashed potatoes. The last two dinners are steaks. My friend ordered the filet medium and I has the New York strip rare. Both steaks were well seasoned and prepared to perfection. Twice baked potato and the best green beans in town come with the steaks. Sorry no room for dessert.

I was so glad to see this place was open again. The tables were well spaced out and our server was delightful and attentive. She also seemed grateful to have the business. Menu seemed paired down (understandably!) but it still had a lot of excellent variety. Well done, Bonfyre!
