    Excellent service at bar, in dining room, and at host station. Typical high-end steakhouse menu selections. My steak au poivre was outstanding, as was my caesar salad. Regrettably, my husband's NY strip was rife with gristle and unchewable parts, which he would not make a fuss over. The affable manager, and wine sommelier?, checked in on our wine selection and asked how the steak was. I mention my husband's inferior steak, and the manager insisted on comping it, much to hubbies chagrin. Overall a great dining experience, and we will definitely dine there again when we visit Madison.

    This was a very nice restaurant for our 50th wedding anniversary. Everything was delicious. The rib-eye steak, garlic mashed potatoes, scallops and French onion soup were great. Offered a rose wine complimentary after dinner. A romantic seating by the window, although with construction going on outside, not a great view but people watching was fun! The service was very nice and everyone wished us a happy anniversary.

    The food was very good and the waitress was attentive. The food came out quickly, the drinks were another story. It took a long time to get our drinks. The only other complaint was that the hash browns were overdone. The last time we ordered them, they were crispy around the edges and soft in the middle. This time it was all crispy and scattered all over the table whenever you tried to cut off a piece...in other words they were dried out and overdone.

    We used to love this place and have no issue paying for a high-end restaurants. However, something has changed in last 6 moths as food and service are both poor. Probably will not go back as both food quality and service are second rate their menu prices reflect a much better experience.

    First time eating at Johnny Delmonico’s. Steaks were cooked to perfection and sides were delicious. My only negative comment was that there was WAY too much sour cream on the baked potato so it kind of ruined the potato. And this is a comment from someone who loves sour cream! The service was impeccable. We were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and we said a birthday. At the end of the meal the waitress brought out a slice of cheesecake. A very nice touch! We will definitely be back when visiting our UW student.

    We have been to Johnny DelMonico’s many times over the years, this is the first time I’ve actually been disappointed. First off this was a special occasion, our anniversary. So we were looking for something special. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. We ordered one app, the beef tartare which was very flavorful, but something was overly salty, possibly the crostini. Anyway, not a big deal but could’ve been better. I had the Caesar salad with anchovies, it was okay, but a little dry. On to the steaks, cooked correctly and very good in general. For the side dish we had the asparagus. The stalks were like tree trunks. It was undercooked, very crunchy, and on the tough side. So in general the food was okay, but not outstanding. As far as ambiance, this is what killed it for me. We wanted an upscale dinner. But as soon as we were seated noticed that many of the other patrons were wearing ripped up jeans flannels, and since it was a Saturday after a Badger game, shorts, t-shirts, baseball caps were everywhere. I thought their was a dress code, but apparently not here anymore. The fans were also very loud which certainly didn’t make it a romantic setting. When we had finished our meal we were enjoying the last of our wine, the server came by and plopped down the check and said, “you didn’t want dessert did you?” My wife said no, and before I could say anything the server was gone. I’ve always enjoyed the desserts, but apparently not this night. We then went to the bar, and even though they were slammed, managed to take care of us as usual. From now on we may just go here for drinks, seems like it’s the safer bet.

    We hadn’t been here in years. Remember it as an unbelievable meal and experience. The food was good but not what we remember. The calamari which we’ve always thought it was our favorite was average. It was right after a football game so it was a little louder than normal

    First visit to Johnny Delmonico's. It was a busy night. While the setting is very nice and the food was very good, our service was deplorable. Our server said it was her first night without supervision, but the basics lacking. For example - 30 minutes to get a first cocktail, another 30 minutes to get soup once we ordered. The same for each course. I ended up going to the bar myself to get wine for the meal. The server twice blamed their ordering system for "losing the tickets". She also served the table next to us and ordered the wrong entree for one of the guests. The host did credit one of the rounds of wine. This establishment is high end and high price so you expect top notch service which we did not receive.

    While on the surface, this restaurant has the feel of a high end steakhouse, the food was lackluster at best. I ordered the most expensive cut on the menu, medium rare, and it was dry and over cooked. I’m not one to send food back as I don’t want it to go to waste. My wife got the scallops which were both slightly over cooked and gritty. We were there on a date and it was louder than I remember from previous visits, making conversation more difficult. The service was good and the over all ambiance of the restaurant is fine, but the quality of the food (for the price) left me wishing I would have chosen a different steakhouse.

    It took 20 min to get a glass of wine, and the waited kept trying to take our order within minutes of sitting down. All the food was good and the presentation was pleasant. When we finally got the bottle of white wine we ordered, it wasn't cold enough to be really enjoyed and actually the house wine was better. The waitstaff seem young, but energetic and trying hard, and also really pleasant. For example, our main course came, but one person's. And no sides. So we sat waiting for that a bit too long. The portions are good sized. My favorite thing was the heirloom tomato burrata, absolutely delightful.

    There is a a saying that if you must eat anywhere in Madison, this is the place . The ambiance is elegant, the food is exceptionally well done . I had a blackened prime rib which was very well seasoned and moist. I have had seafood here as well (yes excellent seafood in a steak house). The bacon wrapped scallops is to die for! And as delicious as the food is, I have always, always found the staff to be very kind and thoughtful. I was late for my reservation , so I called to tell them and they held the reservation for me anyway. I have brought many friends and family member to this steakhouse and the service has always, always been exceptional. I will surely be back again and again.

    The food was exceptional. The environment was noisy. The disappointment lies in the character. Unbeknownst to me, our daughter called you and provided a partial payment of $50 as an anniversary gift. I was never made aware of this and paid the full amount. Our server apparently felt permitted to take the $50 as additional gratuity.
