Server attentive and frequent refills of depleted soft drinks. From out of town meeting with sister in law and husband we were not hurried to vacate the table although it was a slow lunch crowd for indoor dining.

Amazing food and drink. Great indoors and out - unless you’re bothered by birds.

Brunch was delicious, I had pizza di patate and crab cake/fried green tomatoes. I love fried green tomatoes and these are prepared perfectly and goes so well with the crab cakes that had large tasty chunks of crab. Dino and Michelle and our waiter were so friendly, and they recommended a lemoncello/ameretto drink that was the perfect way to complete the meal.

Our first experience at your establishment was truly a positive experience and we will come back again. Everyone that we dealt with was very friendly and it showed that they were enjoying what they were doing. We will try your establishment again and look forward to trying something new. We didn't have any desserts but that will have to be part of our next visit.

We haven't been tho Bonfire in quite awhile and were pleased that really nothing has changed. There were good options for a variety of food on the menu. Our drinks were delicious and our food came well prepared, pleasantly presented and neither too soon or having to wait too long. We never felt rushed and our server was attentive without being obtrusive. All in all a fine meal at a reasonable price.

Really enjoyed our food. Pepper aioli a little string in the burger but otherwise delicious. Rhubarb crumble cobbler very tasty.

Buck and Honey’s has excellent quality food and beverages with a wide variety, including vegetarian and gluten free. The service is decent and responsive, especially upon arrival. One drawback is the noise level - every time I have visited, it has been quite loud, making normal conversation at our table somewhat difficult. But overall, it provides a very good dining experience.

About the restaurant
A heartfelt farewell from Amara...

To our loyal supporters, and this Madison community we love so much - it is with a heavy heart that we must announce the closure of Amara. Following restaurant week, our last day in operation will be dinner service on July 27th.

Thank you for your interest in coming out to Amara for a farewell visit. We highly recommend making a reservation, to ensure we can accommodate your party at your preferred time. Reservations are available at our high tops and in the dining room, but are filling up quickly. 

We will be offering dinner service only, and significant discounts. Starting Monday 7/15, we will be offering 50% off all bottles of wine in addition to 25% off all cocktails from the Amara Bar Menu (while supplies last). We are so grateful to our staff, guests, and everyone who has supported us along this journey. It’s one we will miss.

Thank you,
The Amara Team

JP at the tasting bar was amazing. I have been asked many times to upgrade my wine status to two or three bottles and he was able to upgrade me to three bottles. He recommended wonderful wine and made the experience great
