Arrived for our 51st Anniversary dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by at least 3 staff members and found a friendly anniversary greeting on our table.
Really cool!! Food was excellent and service was great. We intend to tell all our friends about how nice our visit was! Thank you for a pleasant time.

Great food good service. Though expected a menu item from SP location. chicken wontons or something like that but was not on Monona menu. We did find another option though. Hope that appetizer finds its way to your menu!

Lunch on a Saturday where there was maybe 10 people dining. Asked for hot tea....hot water and a lemon was delivered but the waiter said the box of tea was at another table so he would return. About 25 minutes later, he returns with the box with maybe 3 kinds of black tea and basically that is it. Hot water was now cold and the waiter never offered to replace the water with fresh hot water. Service was extremely slow. This is out of the ordinary for B&H's so I am hoping it was just a bad day.

This is our go to restaurant, but this past weekend, we had a couple issues. We ordered the bacon appetizer and it wasn't done well enough - kind of rubbery, so we had to send it back and have them redo it, then is was great.

We opted to eat at the bar on the high tops and the service was not as good as at a regular table. I've learned a lesson

This has become our 'go to" restaurant near Madison. Nothing bad to say at all. Love the backdrop of the bar area.

I booked the reservation last minute for a birthday. They had a framed “Happy Birthday” note at our table and we didn’t have to wait when we arrived. There was plenty of room between the tables and the service was amazing! We never felt rushed and actually were able to take our time and have fun talking! Such an enjoyable experience! The food was beyond great! We both commented it was even better than the last time we had been there. Will definitely go back!

Beautiful restaurant right on the Yahara River. The food choices are great and the quality is excellent. You can eat outside, while the weather permits, or inside with very well spaced apart seating. The waitresses all wear masks and gloves. The staff is helpful and pleasant. There is a bar and the restaurant has wonderful desserts.
