    Beautiful view. Good food. Service was not great. They had two waitstaff. Too many patrons for those two people. Brought incorrect bloodies. Then claimed they were correct because I don’t think bar wanted to re-make. Would love to dine again because food was good quality and good price, but a poor first experience.

    A disappointing experience. The server did everything she could to push out as fast as possible. When you pay $100 a head for dinner, you don't want to feel like you are unwelcome in the dining room. - Once the meat and cheese plate arrived the server pushed for our order. - Salads ordered and delivered within two minutes even as the server said, "Take your time. I won't rush things." - Mains came before salads were cleared. - The desert menu landed while we are having our mains. - The desert order taken while my wife was still eating her stake. - Desert arrived with the bill. - The server came over to check the billfold for payment multiple times. No thank you's, no "have a good night." We were there for one hour forty-five minutes. This is not unreasonable. Tell us if you have a policy regarding time at a table. There are many good options in Madison. I would avoid The Statehouse. Sadly, it's not worth the time and price. This restaurant fails the proud tradition of the Edgewater Hotel.

    Pretentious and underwhelming. Portions were ridiculously small, salmon was way over salted, tenderloin was gamey. They brought the Lobster ravioli to the table and I thought it was an appetizer...5 ravioli. All this for $60 per person. No hint of the quality that used to be the Edgewater standard exists. There are so many better choices than this in Madison for a much lower cost. This was supposed to be a special night for my wife and daughter and ended up being a huge embarrassment. You should be ashamed of both the quality and quantity of the food. We all left hungry and very disappointed. We will not be back.

    We frequent The Statehouse because they have an excellent kitchen and good service. This time was different. Though the food was still excellent, we were abandoned by our waiter. We sat a very long time, a friend’s drink was never delivered, my dessert was either not what I ordered, or I was served the wrong dessert, then because we had to sit without any attention we were over our allotted time for parking and had to pay. We may return someday, but not soon. It was clear we didn’t matter l.

    Portion of the lobster ravioli had me speechless, it was $38 and came with literally 5 raviolis and nothing else. My partners meals was a normal portion and price so I don’t even know what to think.

    Booked a table for an anniversary and we were put way in the back at a tiny little table. We waited at least 10 minutes before our server came to see what we’d like. Our drinks and apps came shortly after. Then, everything was slow. Our service, getting our food. I waited for 20 minutes to get a glass of wine with dinner. Was told that and a beer would be comped for the inconvenience, it wasn’t. Wanted to order a special drink from their menu, our server had ZERO CLUE what we were even talking about, spent 15 minutes trying the figure it out, we put in our order for the fancy drink, 10 minutes later, were told the bartender is just having trouble figuring out the drink so he offered us to get creative, not comp’d, but at this point, we just wanted something. Finally got our drinks and 10 minutes later the most underwhelming molten lava cake ever. Food great, service less than dismal. For the price and what I expected, this fell beyond short and I’m incredibly disappointed. Would not recommend.

    Overall great experience. Service was attentive and friendly. Great wine selection. Soup and salad were delicious. Salmon was very good, but my risotto was not saucy or creamy, it was just rice. Husband enjoyed the strip with truffle potatoes. They gave us a complimentary dessert for his birthday, which we enjoyed with Irish cream coffee. With tip it was $250+

    We were seated early. Christina, our server reminded the kitchen that anchovies are an integral part of a Caesar salad. Both our pork and salmon were well prepared and presented. Why a place that claims high class has no high class German or Alsatian wine is a puzzle. Gewürztraminer would pair well with several house specialties. A mediocre wine list excluding the hyper expensive expense account offerings was more than compensated for by the superb personal and genuine caring service Christina provided for Barb's birthday.

    My wife and I dined at the Statehouse on 2/5/24 based on recommendations of family. We were seated with an amazing view and inviting atmosphere. Ignacio was our server and guided us through the menu to a perfect meal. We started with Wisconsin old fashions, which were well balanced and a classic example of a brandy sweet old fashioned. Based on the recommendation we did a butter board, which is highly recommended! For a first course we had the seasonal acorn squash soup which can hardly be described. It was beyond words.. Then we finish with the pork and beef wellington. Both cooked to perfection. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. We will be returning.

    Everyone at our table had a great time and really enjoyed the food, drinks and great service from Jamarie, our waiter. It was busy and he was very accommodating and made sure we had a great experience. The hostess also helped get us a second round of drinks (can't remember her name) but she was also great. Thank you again! We look forward to going back again soon.

    Our server may have been new but had no sense of customer service. He was very late in getting our drinks and food to us and did not offer refills. He did not ask about our meals and brought the check late without asking about dessert. When we told him we wanted dessert, he acted put out that we did! The other servers seemed more proficient.

    We hosted out-of-town friends at the Statehouse for New Years Day brunch. The hotel was grandly decorated for the holidays, as always, and the lake view is always stunning. Most importantly, the food was outstanding— large portions for a very reasonable price; the brioche was melt-in-your mouth fluffy and light with rich flavors; the omelet perfectly prepared and packed with meats/veggies and the avocado toast piled high. A special acknowledgement for “Tony” the host who was so friendly and accommodating when we checked in, that our friends thought we knew him personally!! We will take other friends here again for the outstanding food, service, and ambience!

    Good cocktails, average food, poor service. Not that busy but still long periods of time between seeing server. Water glasses sat empty multiple times. Staff decided to fix a table during dinner by hammering table. Don’t think I will go back…too bad because nice setting.
