The service was spot on, and our entrees were fabulous (sea bass and king crab). My cocktail was excellent and exactly what I expected it to be. They were out of a few items (one of the oysters, and several desserts), and a large party next to our table was rather boisterous but nothing bad enough to impact our visit. Will return another time to this delightful restaurant!

Every aspect of this dining experience was superb! The service was so welcoming and friendly, the oysters and entrees were perfectly delicious, the cocktails were amazing, and the entire atmosphere was invigorating. The crowd activity felt exciting but the lighting and seating still felt intimate. We can't wait to go back!

Our waiter was very helpful as this was our first visit. The food had extraordinary taste. The atmosphere was very welcoming. The Mai Tai is to die for. Would definitely recommend and would visit again.

This is my favorite Madison restaurant by far. Food quality and cocktails are outstanding, particularly seafood, and service is always top notch. Although it’s expensive, I think the value is tremendous compared to other restaurants.

Impossible to reserve a bar specific table for happy hour on open table, even though a reservation was required. Had no service for the first 20 minutes being there. Overall disappointed in my experience, as this was a trial run to bring my dad here for happy hour, likely will not bring him here. Additionally, there was a party in the secluded room off the dining room, and it appeared that all servers paid more attention to them, than anyone in the dinning room. Visible frustration among other guests in the dinning room.

This place exudes charm and warmth. From the greeting by their Manager, Chip and his adorable son Miles escorting me to my seat, to the friendly and knowledgeable (of the menu, cocktails and historical building's history) Servers + Bartenders treating me as if I was a long time regular. My first visit was on a Monday and I enjoyed their Happy Hour menu; raw oysters, conch fitters, oyster rockefeller and The Jib (a fantastic gin cocktail). My experience was so great that I came back for more on Wednesday to relive the same amazing customer service and hospitality. Kevin, Eric, Scottie, Christian and Nicole are rock stars! I'm over the moon to have found such a wonderful gem and will definitely be returning for more.

We get excited and start talking about the menu as soon as our reservation is made. The shrimp cocktail was fresh and the sauce with horseradish deserves to be eaten with a spoon after the shrimp are gone. Two oysters ordered just for a taste and they were fresh and served with the same sauce as the shrimp. The bread from Madison Sourdough speaks for itself as the best bread in Madison. I ordered a beautifully cooked salmon with pear jus over root vegetables. It was an unexpected delight. The jus over the salmon and vegetables was delicate and yet flavorful standing up to the salmon. The small pears mixed in with the root vegetables provided a nice texture. My husband ordered his usual double cut pork chop served over mashed potatoes. While he has sent a few pork chops back to the kitchen before, this chop has NEVER disappointed him or happened at Tempest. It is tender, full of flavor and a nice size cut. He has before ordered a steak at Tempest with the marrow butter and said it was one of the best steaks he has ever had, and no he is not easy to please. It was a busy night at Tempest but every attention to detail was made from the moment we walked in the door. Thank you Tempest, you are “The Best”!

Everyone from the gentleman who assisted on the phone to the host and hostess to Kevin the amazing bartender and Eric our amazing waiter… literally EVERYONE was simply fabulous! So helpful and really played an integral part in keeping the surprise a surprise. Highly recommend! 100%

We were seated promptly, menu was extensive and had lots of interesting and inviting dishes. Prices were reasonable. Drinks and food were all well prepared and presented and tasty. Service was good but not attentive. Our waiter wasn't friendly or personable but made it work. Dining room was crowded and they say they have spaced tables but really couldn't tell much difference from pre-pandemic times. Didn't bother us but if you are concerned about it, probably not the place for you on a busy weekend. Since it was a full dining room it was VERY noisy. So loud you had to yell across the table. I was hoarse the morning after from constantly having to yell for 2 hours. They really need to do something to dampen the noise level.
