    Reservation was made for 7pm. I felt very rushed during service. The waitress was asking us what dessert we wanted before we had our dinner. The waitress was polite but very awkward and hard to understand. She seemed very frazzled and in a massive hurry. I checked the hours and realized they close at 8pm. My fault for not checking but why would you be able to make a reservation at 7pm for "fine dining" if they close an hour later? The steaks we cooked properly but cold. They were not hot or even warm. The loaded mashed potatoes were very good. The steaks had absolutely no seasoning and were very flavorless. I have been here before and the service along with the food quality was drastically better. I would not return for another meal at this cost vs. value.

    Very great place to eat and the service was amazing. I was skeptical about going to eat here because of some of the reviews of the high prices ect. but it's well worth it because of huge portion sizes and the food for the most part was excellent. The environment and the vibe of this place was great as well. I will recommend this place so give it a try.

    We made a reservation for 9:30, and then they called to ask if we could come at 9:15 as they close the kitchen at 10. That was the first hint this wasn’t going to be a great experience. When we arrived, they sat us next to a very large and loud group, even though the other room was empty. Clearly they were shutting down the other area at 9:15 on a Saturday, so the remaining diners were crowded in the bar. Food was reasonably tasty, but steak was over cooked without being seared enough. Too long in a sous vide bath I guess. Caesar salad was creative, with the addition of tomatoes and olives, but had far too much cheese. Mushroom risotto was just mush. Asparagus with hollandaise was done perfectly, and wild mushroom addition to steak was very good. The waitress ended up telling us her whole life story. I’m all for midwestern friendliness, but it was too much. She was certainly attentive, but was constantly going too far in conversation. It wasn’t a terrible meal, but not worth big city steakhouse prices. For those prices I expect a high-end steakhouse experience, and this was more like Applebees with better food.

    The good? The food is very tasty and prepared well, and the portions are good. We had two "shareables" and an entree, and did not go away hungry. The service was pretty much impeccable. Friendly, knowledgeable waitstaff. The bad? The prices are a bit out of proportion to the value. The pour on the cocktails was a bit skimpy, particularly at $10-$14 each. The ugly? There was a singer playing guitar who could neither sing nor play guitar. It was... painful, and cost them an entire star. Assuming no "music," I would return.

    We were very pleased with our entire experience at Wissota. All of the staff were very attentive and kind. Everything we ordered was delicious, not one thing was just “okay”. The majority of the food was reasonably priced. The steaks were a bit higher in price, but it was the best steak I’ve ever had. You get what you pay for at this restaurant. We absolutely will be back for a special occasion!

    Menu has wrong spellings which are highly OBVIOUS… Danielle is fantastic! Ask for her and you won’t be let down. For the price you would figure that Pomogrant and carrts would not be on the menu online or printed, but here we are… Service was GREAT but confused when I kept asking for carrts… I would fix the menu online and printed, if it were my place… Outside of the OBVIOUS spelling errors… highly recommend

    My review is unfortunate. Had reservations for a date night. Drove from Rockford, IL to enjoy a nice meal only to find out they were closed. I did get a phone call earlier in the day but it wasn’t from a (608) area code is was a (740) OH area code. Not being a Wisconsin phone number I ignored it thinking it was a spam call. Why wouldn’t a business located in Wisconsin have a Wisconsin number. The trip wasn’t a total bust. We enjoyed a great meal across the river at The Drafthouse, highly recommend them!
