I had an absolutely wonderful time at the melting pot. The waitress was amazing and helped us understand the menu. It was the best place I've been to for a birthday dinner. I will be coming back for sure! More

Best birthday meal I've ever had. My husband was blown away by the lamb, and I got emotional over the almond cake. Truly an amazing experience. Thank you! More

I've eaten here twice and both times the food was excellent. I appreciate that it's a little more quiet--you can have a conversation here. They didn't mind at all that we stayed for several hours. The service was great. Very pleasant place. More

Vin Santos is a true gem of a restaurant. The staff are so welcoming and knowledgeable, and the mood is low key and lovely. Background music is a plus. Food is delicious each and every time. More

Discover Madison

Surrounded by lakes, Madison is also home to an amazing variety of cuisines. Fish fry, steak, and pasta are all local favorites that you can enjoy with a view of the lake and a bottle of fine wine. However, Swiss, French, Spanish, and Italian cuisines are also widely available around the city. Whether or not you follow a vegetarian or gluten-free diet, you'll definitely want to try the award-winning falafel, which you can find just north of downtown. Be sure to also stop by one of Madison's dairy bars, which serve far more than just a handful of cheese-centric dishes.
