Predictably nice. If you get on their email list they will send you a coupon for $20 worth of an entrée on your birthday.
Excellent experience. service was great, attentive. Food was delivered quickly, important at lunchtime. Taste of the pot roast and vegetables - excellent. Competitive prices.
Everything about this place was good except for the noise level. Do something to reduce the level coming from the bar area.
We had a great time...great food, service & dessert. Our server, Morgan, was helpful, attentive & fun!
I have been to Bonfyre a number of times and, with best intentions, intended to return home and give Bonfyre an excellent review --- but never got around to it... So this time I promised myself to follow through. Bonfyre is an exceptional restaurant, a gem in Madison dinning---and Bonfyre could hold its own against many of the great Chicago restaurants. Great place.
The brunch was amazing! Unique food choices on the menu. If breakfast isn’t your thing you can order off their lunch menu too. Looking forward to going back soon.
My meal was good, a sizeable portion which allowed for a full leftover meal.
The wine I chose was mediocre and I should have sent it back as it seemed like the bottle had been opened for a while.
Wait person was attentive and pleasant.
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.
Great, as always.
Ribs were amazing!!!
Great food and service. We enjoyed our meal and the waitress was fun.
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 thought the food was excellent and the overall ambiance was peaceful and perfect for a nice date.
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!
Valentine’s dinner with my wife. Food and service were excellent!
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.
Guaranteed you're going to get great food.
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
My wife and I went for my birthday! The service was top notch! Walked in got seated right away, waitress was at the table soon after and knew the specials without missing a beat. Drinks were fast to arrive and dinner was ordered! Food arrived fast and was wonderful, I had the Bon fyre mixed grille and my wife had the chicken parmesan. Then we had dessert and again the waitress knew every flavor of the small desserts! Great evening out and great service! Highly recommend this fine establishment to anyone! We will be returning!!!
Our food was delicious - highly recommend the herb rotisserie chicken as well as the ribs. The glaze they use for the ribs is delicious! Wonderful and friendly service and well priced for how good the food was. Will return for sure!
We were seated in the quiet area per our request. Service was professional and well timed. The grilled Caesar salad could have used a bit more char, was well dressed and large enough to share. The steaks and were perfectly rare, well seasoned and tender. They were served with a generous portion of tender crisp green beans dressed with garlic and butter. They, alone, are a reason to return. The house twice backed potato with bacon and cheese could have used less salt. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and very good.. Over all we had an enjoyable evening with good food and friends. I highly recommend the House old fashioned and look forward to returning.
Good meal, efficient service. Only disappointment was that we indicated on the reservation that this was a birthday dinner and nothing happened as a result. Kind of a let down.
Our server was apparently new, and unfamiliar with the menu. I ordered a filet, which automatically comes with a twice baked potato. I asked if I could swap roasted red potatoes instead. She brought the baked potato, and when I reminded her I had asked for a substitute, she said "I thought this was the substitute." She apologized and brought the correct item as soon as she could, but it was obviously a rush job, so the potatoes were not as crisp as usual. Otherwise she was friendly and helpful.
Everyone in my group loved their food. However it was noisy and a bit hard to hear conversations at times. Half of us think your entry doors are too heavy, yes they are.
Good GF options, willing to adjust menu item to make it gluten free.
The meal was good, but not overwhelming. The highlight was our server, Royce. He was really attentive and friendly and helped make an average meal much nicer overall.
Ambience was very nice. Food came very fast, which was alarming. I had the steak, chicken, and ribs. Ribs were good, steak was overdone (ordered medium and there was no pink whatsoever), chicken was dry (seemed as if it had been sitting out for quite some time. Husband had the seafood trio of scallops, shrimp, and salmon. Scallops were great but the shrimp was overdone. Salmon was okay. If it wasn’t for having a gift card, I would have been upset with the overall experience and price.
We had reservations. We were seated promptly. Wait staff was awesome. Food was good. Highly recommend the ribs! Great cocktails! Overall it was a great experience and will be back!
Visited during Restaurant Week and our group tried all three special menus. Excellent food snd service. Easy to park. Loud near the bar, but very nice back where we were seated.
It was extremely dark. Had to use our cell phone light and/or candle on the table to even slightly see the menu. It made it difficult even seeing my friends across the table. I would recommend more lighting. PLEASE!
Every year we celebrate our Birthdays at Bonfyre and this year did not disappoint. We had wonderful service and food. We are trying a vegan diet and the kitchen was able to accommodate that request with a wonderful pasta and veggie dish. Thanks for helping us celebrate!
Food and service was very good but the price seemed high overall. Ambiance was confusing as the clientele were generally casual and sports TVs were on- not that either of these was a bad thing just didn’t seem to fit together.
Good food and service. Close to the highway easy to access.
Service was pushy and non responsive to our request to sit back and enjoy our wine; felt like we were being pushed out the door.
