It was incredible!
Nice service. Had to send back a filet for more time on the grill but this was done politely and promptly.
Met with friends who had moved away from Madison years age. Food was great and service wonderful. Recommend highly for a casual, nicer dining experience.
Went for a fancy dinner on the cheap side and had a great time! Had great food (the chicken parm was AMAZING) for less than $30 a person. Would definitely go back for some future date nights
Crystal was our server and she rocked! My steak was good, but not the best I've ever had. We'll go back, that's for sure
Great dinner and customer service. Only issue is how loud customers can be in the bar area
Great menu and food
Really fast on the food delivery. Too good, however they nearly forgot to check in with us after that.
Lovely and friendly waitress.
Our lunch was a family celebration. It is one of our favorite places. Service was excellent for waitstaff. Food was slow to come out. The kitchen wasn't prepared to cook bacon wrapped shrimp. We did not have an appetizer. My steak sandwich was tasty but the top sirloin was tough and stringy.
In spite of my complaints, we had an extremely pleasant time until the fire alarm went off and could not be silenced. We prepared to pay our check but the hostess advised that we would not be charged for the meals. That was a very pleasant surprise.
We enjoy dining at Bonfyre and would readily recommend to all.
Love this place
Bonfyre is often a safe bet. Just wasn't impressed with the service this time out. Waitress seemed to forget about us as the night went on.
We were there with our family celebrating my husbands retirement. We were seated in cozy table near the fireplace. The service was excellent! Food excellent! Price was reasonable. Thank you for a lovely evening!
We made reservations online to celebrate our mom birthday. Beautiful atmosphere, excellent food and service.
In your lunch menu it says the saffron risotto was $19 and I got charged $20 on my bill. No big deal. I just thought I'd tell you in case you need to change something or reprint menus.
We came here for the first time with another couple for restaurant week and it was fabulous. We had a seat right by the bar and it was a bit noisy, but trying the different courses and the restaurant for the first time was wonderful. Our service was absolutely excellent.
We went for the restaurant week menu. I thought the atmosphere was nice and I’d like to go sometime and sit at the bar and have a sandwich or something light. The appetizer was calamari strips that were too greasy and my friend had a tiny crab cake, the main course was a great bone in pork chop with delicious mash potatoes and green beans that would have better if cut into smaller pieces. My friend had chicken curry that had a nice spice but seemed a bit watery. For dessert they brought around six different cups, I had chocolate peanut butter and my friend had berry. Can’t remember what they were called but were small but very rich and delicious. The waitress apologized for the slow service but I thought it was fine.
We really enjoy the atmosphere and the food at Bonfyre, but we’ve been disappointed with the staff the last couple times we’ve been there. Our server didn’t even tell us his name and didn’t check on us often enough. He seemed to not want to serve us. We also got seated way in the back, apart from other patrons, so we felt pretty isolated.
It was our first visit and everything was wonderful... Service and food were outstanding!!!
I made reservations requesting a booth and an area away from kids to have a nice dinner with my significant other. When I arrived, I was seated a table for two next to two tables with young loud kids. I had to request and wait for another table. When I finally got to my booth, there were young kids there also. The restaurant really needs to at least have a small no kid zone for those adults trying to get a break from kids.
Although the ambiance at Bonfyre is nice, was disappointed in two things. Firstly @ our 7 PM reservation, they had already sold out of the special (Prime rib) and I ordered the Special ribeye steak. Unfortunately, the ribeye was overly sinuous and had more fat than a quality ribeye should contain. The quality of this meat was on a par with Bonanza steak house.
Nice, clean, quiet space. Upscale. My only complaint is that the seafood cobb salad had very little dressing on it so it wound up tasting bland. Where there was dressing, it tasted flavorful. For that reason, I could not rate it a five. They should have, at the very least, put a cup of dressing on the side. Unfortunate because the dish would have been through the moon otherwise. Instead, it was a great salad that tasted very disappointing.
Waited just a short time for a table, initial service and getting drinks was a bit slow, but after that the food was delicious, as usual. Very reliably provides a good meal.
Chicken dishes were overcooked and dry. Dark dry skin.
Birthday dinner. Food was very good. Great staff.
Great food, desserts are the BEST, wish they still had the Aioli fries as an appetizer........... GREAT LOSS that they are no longer offered
Great food and experience
Waitress was wonderful
Amazing dessert! Awesome stake! Great drinks
We were in town for business. Were extremely happy with the whole Bonfyre experience from food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back again as soon as we are back in town in about 2 weeks.
Large group was accommodated well. Delicious and generous servings.
Excellent restaurant. Always one of our favorites when we visit Madison.
Always good food although the garlic in potatoes and sauces are way too strong
Some menu items are grossly overpriced. $18 for shrimp cocktail containing 5 shrimp! Otherwise, the service is good, and I like the atmosphere.
Father’s Day Brunch was a 10! The lobster frittata was delicious!
We went for Father's Day, Sunday Brunch. It was busy with lots of fathers. Food was exceptional. Service was excellent. Noise level was high due to It being busy. This was the first time we dined here. We will definitely go again!
I had the Seafood Cobb Salad, which is gluten-free. It was wonderful and there was enough to take home. It is so nice when eating out to feel the restaurant is taking gluten-free seriously, not just as a fad.
Although it can be difficult to find due to the lack of a high visibility sign, it's definitely worth the experience.
Excellent food and great atmosphere. Our guests from out of town loved it. Everyone said their food was great!
Bonfyre American Grill is our family's favorite place to dine when we are in Madison. You're greeted at the door by the smell of smoked meat. Comfy booths and a big bar area. Attentive service and good beer selection. We really enjoy the ribs.
