    Beautiful lakeside setting and excellent service. Sunset was exceptional! Food was served very quick…almost TOO fast. I enjoyed the Wisconsin Fish Fry and we ordered sides and salads. Great spot on campus of UW, Madison.

    Due to a lot of business at the hotel (weddings, etc.) the underground parking garage was full. It would be helpful if a that could be communicated to patrons of the restaurant and hotel rather than having to drive through multi-levels of the building to learn that no spot was available. As far as dinner, the cheese board was very good and our request for extra crackers was accommodated--not enough crackers had been provided for four people. One party's pork chop was a bit dry and there really was no side provided other than some overly done microgreens. The salmon was good. Had a better experience here early in the spring. Won't be back, unfortunately.

    Sunday brunch was great! Nice variety of choices of food and beverages, excellent server abd a beautiful view of Lake Mendota. The only thing that lessened our 5 star review to 4 was that nothing was done or said by our server for the birthday person in our group. We indicated birthday in the reservation and mentioned it to the hostess upon arrival. We had an expectation of something, but nothing from the restaurant.

    I asked for a view of the lake and got it. We’d last been at the Edgewater for dinner before we were married 44 years ago. Service was attentive and food prices were reasonable. Only criticism was the noise level. Friday night at 7:30 was loud.

    The view is amazing and the sunset over the lake is an added experience. The ambiance is outstanding. The menu is eclectic appeases many tastes. The service that evening was fine, but in the slow side and not attentive. Likely a reflection of the widespread lack of people working in restaurants. Despite this the staff was very cordial. We had a great time.

    Overall a good experience. This was a special event; thus I wanted somewhere romantic and scenic. Atmosphere and food were good to great. Service was so-so. Wait staff seemed a bit rushed, and felt like eating at any Olive Garden or Outback. Had a great window table. The near dusk view of Lake Mendota was fantastic. However, had I known the wind sills were covered in mosquitos (live and dead), we'd probably have asked to sit elsewhere. Hopeful a on a future visit, the Statehouse at the Edgewater will be more like its predecessor, the Admiralty Room were the food and service were top notch.

    The hostesses were less than professional. When we arrived for our reserved time we were told the table was being cleared. A window table. 25 minutes later we double checked at the hostess stand. Yes our table was ready.- we were walked in to a center room table. Not our preference. We volunteered to wait for a window table. Let the hostess know again that we would wait in the bar. She never came for us- when we went back to check voila the table was ready. Our waiter Alex- first week on the job was excellent. What he lacked in experience he made up for in effort and professionalism. Asparagus Bisque was phenominal- my wife enjoyed the wedge. I had the special NY strip, flavorful but not exceptional. We were test driving the Statehouse to see if it qualifeid for New Yeras Eve dinner as we will be staying in the Edgewater.- 4 thumbs down as a special occasion attraction

    The view of Lake Mendota is what sells this restaurant. Our service was good, but the food was only OK. We were a table of 5. One person had to send their lamb chops back--they were supposed to be medium rare and came well done. The brisket sandwich was a complete ZERO--don't ever order it!!! It was nothing like the description. The only flavor was extreme salt. The chicken was good,but something similar to anything you could make at home. So food was a 2-3 on a scale of 5. I would only recommend this restaurant for the view/location.

    Service was average. I put in our reservation we were celebrating a birthday and it was never acknowledged. We ordered the bread service appetizer. Four small slices was a joke for 15 dollars. Wedge salad was outstanding. I ordered a filet asking only for pink in the center, no red, and it came out red. Waitress asked if I wanted them to cook it more but with it being only 6 ounces and now cut up, that would have ruined it. So I gave it to my kids. She apologized but made no effort to do anything else. We also ordered the pasta. It was bland and undercooked. Brisket sandwich was average. Desserts were superb. View is amazing. For the price and lack of attentiveness we won’t be returning though.

    This was our second dinner at The Statehouse. The service was better this time with one notable exception. I had noted my wife's nut allergies on the reservation form, and the hostess who seated us acknowledged this and indicated she would remind the kitchen staff. So, we were disappointed when the cheese and charcuterie board included numerous marcona almonds underneath many other items on the board. To her credit, our server offered to have the plate remade, but we declined knowing they would throw away that food. We worked around it, but we shouldn't have had to. We decided to go the tapas route via the appetizer menu options. The charcuterie board and the bread board offered many delightful flavor combinations, although having more than one meat on the charcuterie board would have preferable. In addition, we asked for additional bread, which was delicious, but were told we would have to order another full bread board. (Side note: Bread does accompany some of their entrees.) The food on both boards was quite good with the rosemary butter on the bread board and the charcuterie sides (rosemary crackers, olives, cornichons, and assorted berries) as particular standouts. We also devoured an order of chicken wings. My wife initially said, "I'll have one" and five wings later she proclaimed them a big hit. Although described as a ginger-based sauce, which gave my wife pause, the ginger was balanced nicely and unlike many wing BBQ sauces was not cloyingly sweet. The crispy pork belly tacos were quite small for the price and the pork belly, while tasty, was less than crispy; however, the smoked pineapple complemented it well. My wife loved the skillet cookie with extra ice cream to meet her desired cookie to ice cream ratio. I had a scoop of cinnamon gelato, which had a discernable, but not overpowering, cinnamon flavor and was an excellent way to end the meal.

    We dined for our anniversary on a Tuesday evening & it wasn’t crowded, & we had a beautiful table with lake views and watched the sunset. We waited about 15 minutes for our first drink. Not a very large menu & the first item I ordered, I was told was almost out & to pick a backup just in case. A different server brought our food out (I received the back-up order) & our original server didn’t come back to check on us until after we were done with our main meal. We ordered after dinner drinks & 10 min later we’re told the cO2 tanks were down & she was unable to bring our drinks. The food was good, but not spectacular. Definitely not worth the $128 bill (salad, filet & 2 sets of drinks) especially with the lack of service. I had high expectations but in the end, this was a typical hotel restaurant.

    Everything was beyond great! Only issue was that a 6oz steak was priced as MP, to find out it was $60. No sides with it. Seems a bit much for such a small cut of meat that could be less at upscale steakhouses.

    Everything was very nice and servuce one would expect from an upscale restaurant. Only knock on the place is the serving sizes are very small. Ordered all 3 courses, and still managed to leave the restaurant hungry… which shouldn’t happen on a tab of $158 for 2 people and no alcohol. A 6oz steak as the only steak option is way too small.

    The menu is varied and we hope to return to try some of the other menu items. Everything was delicious and the service was professional and friendly. Our only complaint is that there was no pacing of the courses being brought out. We would have ordered a bottle of wine after our appetizers, but our entrees showed up before we'd finished the appetizer and cocktails. What's the rush?

    This was our first time dining at The Statehouse. Despite there being few diners when we arrived, service was slow and sporadic; however, service improved when additional waitstaff were available later. After our water glasses were filled, we discovered a gnat in one of the glasses. No replacements were provided until just before our entrees arrived. The wine my wife ordered from the menu was not available, but she identified a suitable alternative. These minor glitches did not detract from the beautiful view of Lake Mendota, as we were fortunate to have a table by the window. The pinot noir (Stoller) and Prosecco (Lunetta) we ordered were satisfactory, both in quality and amount. My wife chose the crispy skin chicken for an entree. Unfortunately, by the time her plate arrived, the skin was less than crispy, perhaps losing its crispiness as the plate was being composed. She noted the meat was juicy and the skin was well-seasoned, and she enjoyed the side vegetables (mashed potatoes and carrots, which is not a given. I chose the lamb rack and it was perfectly cooked. The lamb itself was high quality and deftly seasoned with a panko-mint breading that accentuated the lamb flavor. The pea puree and potatoes complimented the lamb, but the burnt onion added a creative element that I enjoyed more than expected. For dessert, my wife chose the skillet cookie with caramel ice cream. It was a winner! She noted that it made up for the earlier missteps. I selected the mango panna cotta. The mango was in a heavy syrup whose sweetness overwhelmed the panna cotta and the toasted coconut on top of it. This is a matter of personal preference more than anything else, as my threshold for cloyingly sweet is much lower than most people. All in all, the food and views were the bright spots, but The Statehouse has some operational issues to address before it can be considered one of Madison's elite restaurants.

    Of all the brunches happening in Madison this restaurant was just fair. I had the eggs benedict which was ok and my partner had the Easter Special. Really disappointing and having just one main dish to choose from was a disappointment as well. Our waiter was slow and look confused at times when asked questions about our order and for someone that has never had a Wisconsin cheese curd? Nothing more than fried mozzarella. The entire dinner menu should have been included for Easter Brunch not just been available after 4 pm. The Edgewater Hotel and its location however were outstanding but your restaurant didn't meet up to its standards.

    We were here as first-timers for Easter brunch and it was absolutely outstanding. The food and drinks are out of this world, all paired with a stunning view and wonderful ambiance. The only recommendation we had was the service, as we were not checked on for refills or to see if we needed anything further. It wasn’t overly busy by the looks of our room. I am completely fine not having constant check ins, but once or twice to see if anything is needed or refilled is always nice! 10/10 recommend however, and we hope to be back soon!
