    We had drinks at bar while waiting for two more in our party and our reservation time. Bartender seemed distracted or inattentive. There were 3 people in our party at the bar. . She took one drink order then left to attend to others. Then came back and got second order. Then left and we called her back for third order. Two out of three drinks were not prepared according to our order. Dinner service and food were very good.

    With all the foodie competition In the Madison area the entrees quality wasn’t consistent with price. I’m fine paying 25$ for a great entree. Quality wasn’t there. Sides were limited and didn’t pair well with all the entrees. Premium sides were an upgrade. We had the waygu burger which I’d rate 6.5/10 and TAs hot Comby which was 7/10. Drinks were good.

    The acoustics are terrible. It's really difficult to hear people on the other side of a round table when other tables close by are occupied. There were 7 of us and all of us complained about the noise level.

    The location is gorgeous, and my partner and I appreciated the music and overall atmosphere. However, for the patently ridiculous price of my meal I was expecting some food of quality, and was severely disappointed. My Fish Tacos were a soggy tasteless mess of which I ate half of one taco (they provided three). I should’ve asked the server to have the item comped, as I barely ate it and it cost me $20. The “Big Bowl of Macaroni and Cheese” was at least edible, although somehow that managed to disappoint my partner as well. Portion size was not large, the noodles were overdone, and again the béchamel sauce was very bland. We will not be going here again, as even if the price was significantly more reasonable the food would still be subpar in quality.

    Food was pretty good, but very expensive. 2 entrees and 2 drinks cost us $100 without tip. We had an extremely small table and didn't feel like we had any table space to eat or elbow room. Very noisy as well and too dark to read the menu. I don't mind dimmed lights, but shouldn't have to use my phone to read the menu. Fix one of them.

    The food is always great. The entree salads are huge, and the stuffed chicken is my favorite. Celebrating a bday and they had a little sign on the table and a dessert for the birthday boy. The server was so friendly, attentive and great at her job.

    Hade lunch with a friend on a Monday afternoon. It was a nice surprise to see the restaurant was busy, I am glad we had reservations. I felt the menu had many great options, it was difficult to choose. Our food was great and the service was delightful. We will be back.

    I have dietary restrictions and the waitress was not paying attending and ended up handing me food that would have put me very sick and possibly in the hospital and then tried to offer items on the menu I knew I couldn't eat. The kitchen fixed the appetizer quickly which was good. I was disappointed that the waitress said that essentially everything was pre-made and little accommodations to food items could be done. She was slow to return to the table for service. Additionally, the restaurant is always so cold. I used to love Buck and Honeys and now I'm not so sure. I guess I just continue to need to have new expectations of hospitality these days.

    This was our first time at the Monona location. When we walked in we were seated immediately and the ambience was notably great. But then we were taken downstairs where the vibe was slightly subdued comparatively. The table was nice. The waitress was prompt and we ordered an appetizer -- the Sampler -- and some drinks. My first selection of beer was out of stock and then I chose a second selection. The waitress left, came back and told me that one was out as well. I took a few minutes to reset as my wife received her glass of wine. The staff returned with our appetizer and then the waitress came back. I ordered the same wine as my wife. The Sampler was so delicious! Then, the wait for our food was too long and the two plates came out less than warm. The food had that "sat out too long" film. But, honestly, it was so delicious I didn't complain. The champaign chicken was worth coming back for. I would have given the food and service 5 stars had the food arrived hot or even warm. Also, following a savory appetizer, a long wait is the best appetite killer in the book. This is a large restaurant and I suppose timing is always a challenge. We will return, but perhaps we will pass on an appetizer next time. Finally, we took home some desert and it was delish.
