    So, I want to start by saying I love this restaurant and would normally give it 5 stars. However, three thing took away from our experience this time. First, the music was way too loud. My mom is hard of hearing and she struggled to hear even though she has hearing aids. Second we were seated off in a corner facing a pillar. Felt a little cut off from the “atmosphere. Third, and most disappointing, my husband’s crab cakes smelled like old fish and were way over seasoned…nearly inedible. That was quite surprising. Everything else was wonderful so we will definitely return. Just not a 5 star experience this time.

    Excellent service. Steaks were done to the temperature asked for and seasoned to allow the meat flavor to be highlighted. Mushroom risotto was exactly what I was looking for in a side. We enjoyed our experience and we will be back!

    We had a great experience here! When our table wasn't quite ready, we were given drinks as we waited as well as the option to switch to a different table if we wanted (we chose to wait for the window table). The waitress was very kind and knowledgeable, and we had fantastic food.

    Wonderful service. The wine list was very good and had great options by the glass. I had the 12 oz New York strip and was cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque was delicious. We also tried the garlic mash potatoes, hash browns, iceberg salad and three different appetizers (highly recommend the croquettes) and everything met or surpassed our expectations. And so did the check, in a negative way. I found it quite pricey compared to other options in town of similar quality.

    Made first time reservations for my husband’s birthday. We met good friends with delicious cocktails & appetizer. Peppered bacon was overly peppered. Each of us ordered a steak, which was perfectly prepared along with two sides: asparagus & shaved brussel sprouts. Our bottle of rich red wine complimented our meal. We were surprised with a complimentary cheesecake with a candle to end our perfect evening.

    We were in town to see a comedy show, and went to dinner beforehand. The server asked us if we had to be anywhere, and we told her yes, our show was at 7 (we were there before 5 for our 5pm reservation). We ordered cocktails, appetizer, and a bottle wine, and then our meal. The appetizer and cocktails came out quickly, but she forgot about our bottle of wine and our food took an inordinate amount of time to get to the table. The server barely checked on us, and we finally caught her and asked if our food was almost ready because it was 630 (the time we planned to leave). 3 of the 4 meals were really good, one meal was not great but it could have also been because the server spilled wine all over my wife’s steak.

    Food and service were outstanding!!! We had the tomahawk steak and shared it plenty for two. Price was 200 which I had no problem with however it’s very loud and cramped. Felt more like a sports bar than a high end steakhouse.

    We had some gift cards and were excited to celebrate our engagement by treating ourselves to dinner here, especially since a friend loves this place. Unfortunately, we had a pretty awful server experience which was not made up for by the 'just ok' food and drink quality. Considering the prices here, we expected far more. When we arrived we were promptly greeted by the water server. She came by three times (every five minutes) which was lovely. By the third time, we asked if she'd be able to grab our server and she asked if something was wrong and if she could help. We responded that our server had still not been to our table and she looked very surprised. We watched as other patrons who had entered after us were served drinks and appetizers and still our server had not been to our table. The water server was able to get our server's attention and we were able to order. Again, unfortunately, the service did not improve from there and we had to wait numerous times to order or ask questions of our server due to how infrequently she came to our table. When we were finished eating (over 2 hours later due to the long waits) we had to wait so long that a manager had to come by and ask if anything was wrong because we 'hadn't taken a bite in a while.' We told him we were finished and he got our food boxed up. (I don't know how long we would have had to wait if he hadn't done this). When we were given our check, the server never came by again! We had to just leave the gift cards and cash on the table. We were seated near the entrance to the kitchen so numerous servers and staff members walked by our table but our server seemed to be somewhere else. In addition, the food was good but wasn't worth the price we paid. We had steak, scallops, and gnocchi for mains and the lobster bisque and mushroom caps as appetizers. I've had better versions of every single dish at other restaurants in Madison, same with the drinks (old fashioned). We will not be dining here again.

    Johnny Delmonico'sResponded on November 1, 2022vballnewman, so sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience. I will be looking into this. If you are willing to provide me with a mailing address, I would love send you some gift cards in the hopes you will give us a second chance. Again I apologize that the food and service were not up to you standards.

    Beautiful, warm, cozy and classy atmosphere. Food was very good, however, most of our dishes were very salty. The waiter was mediocre even though the table next to us had excellent service with a different waiter. The hostess was very sweet and attentive, and let us pick where we wanted to sit (bar area or back table). We would go back for sure. I wouldn't let those minor things dissuade me from another visit. Very nice for a date night or special occasion.

    Wonderful service provided by Cynthia. She was so personable and always right there when we needed her. Prices are fair for a steakhouse. My bone in ribeye was good, but not great. It did not have much flavor. Loved the tuna tartare appetizer. We will go back, especially if we have Cynthia as a server.

    The ribeye and the petit fillet were prepared beautifully. The ribeye had a peppercorn crust, sautéed onions, and au poivre sauce that were excellent. The hash browns were also delicious. The one disappointing off-note was the macaroni and cheese. I expected something special, let alone above average for this dish. It was curly noodles in a very light, thin sauce. The sauce was bland. (I also expected some thing along the lines of a mini-casserole). Definitely not worth the $13. One gentle suggestion: the one Italian red wine on the menu sold by the glass was also excellent. Why not offer a second, different Italian red wine by the glass as well?
