    Rye was amazing. They made our celebration very special with a card and a free dessert! The food was phenomenal as well. The salmon was to die for. Some of the best salmon I’ve ever had. Cocktails were okay, pretty pricey for a weak drink. Overall it was great! I would definitely return.

    We really enjoy the Rye and go back often. The food was very good, as always, but my steak came out only lukewarm warm. As soon as I made them aware they took care of reheating.

    Another wonderful experience at rye! I love that the menu changes with the seasons - it’s always fresh and exciting. The servers are so knowledgeable about the wines and the food, I always feel confident asking questions. From the ambience and the welcome, through the meal and to the moment I walk out the door, rye is a most satisfying event!

    Absolutely wonderful! We were seated immediately upon arrival, very friendly front of house staff. Our server was prompt with greeting us and starting our drink order. The Rye Old Fashioned was wonderful as well as the Lavender Blueberry Martini. Appetizers of crab cakes and roasted beet salad, best we’ve had in a long time. Dinner was delicious and service excellent. A little pricey but worth the cost.

    Short rib dish was unfortunately very disappointing...tough and super fatty. Carrots not cooked correctly. Wished there was more more gravy as well. Just an overall dry dish. Service was nothing great. Only brought us one round of drinks and then the bill right away.

    My friend and I had a lovely meal at Rye on Saturday night. I ordered the Tuscan risotto. It was so flavorful and delicious. My friend ordered the ravioli and enjoyed it very much. We were fortunate to have our favorite server Willow. She is an outstanding team member at Rye and has the cutest personality. She makes sure every detail of your dining is perfect!. Once again, Rye gets five stars from me!

    The Rye Copperleaf bar is the perfect place for a quick bite and drink before attending a performance at the Fox Cities PAC. The servers are always so accommodating about us needing to leave promptly at 720.

    Very good overall but hard to talk with the noise level. People at our table loved the pork chop dish, but the butter squash ravioli had too much sauce on it and it was a very heavy white sauce, so much you couldn’t really taste the butternut squash in the ravioli. We will come back again

    Outstanding service, everything first class. The only problem, and a small problem really, my wife did not enjoy the prime rib. She really doesn't enjoy beef. So next time she will try seafood. That's more to her taste. Everything thing else was very enjoyable. We really had a great time.

    Prepare to be wowed! Drinks were delicious and well crafted. Food was superior. I had the squash stuffed ravioli and practically licked my bowl. Everyone in our group loved their meal. Portions are not huge but I’m ok with that. I’d rather have a smaller portion of something delicious than a huge plate of “meh” food. Server was friendly and attentive. I can’t wait to go back.

    Phenomenally good food! I had the hanger steak, a special that day. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked with amazing flavor. The oysters were delicious and their hand made sauces that come with are the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend the charcuterie board as well. I went before a show at the PAC and I will definitely go again!
