    The burgers which were delicious in the past , were ‘salty’ and not good. Like the Statehouse location in the Edgewater Hotel in Madison and the service was good as well as our table with a view of Lake Mendoda but main dishes not as good and the Wedge Salad was drowning in mayonnaise based dressing with very skimpy lettuce portions! Hopefully they’ll amp up quality!

    Arrived a little early to have drinks and enjoy the scenery. Bar was short-handed, so ordered at the bar and waited 15 min for drinks. Seating for dinner was great - next to a window overlooking Lake Mendota. Service was decent, food was okay, portions a little small, too heavily salted. Very small complimentary slice of carrot cake for our birthday guest. Bill came to >$50 per person, not including drinks and parking, yikes.

    Our family of 5 (ages 89-20) enjoyed brunch there on Sunday and all was very satisfying except you had several tables of sorority girls that were very lound and made our conversation difficult. We ordered 1 egg benedict, one with smoked salmon, 1 salmon and lox and two french toast, all delicious and generous portions. Service was excellemnt and the lake view setting was lovely

    This was our first time eating here, but we'd heard good things from others in advance. All of the staff we interacted with were very pleasant and personable, and it was easy to tell they cared about making it a pleasant experience. The food came out surprisingly quickly and was excellently prepared to boot.

    This restaurant rests on its lake view and being attached to a hotel. Our dinner there was very disappointing. The menu is mixed and included cheeseburgers for dinner. It is not upscale at all. We ordered wine three times until they found one they really had available. The problem was we waited over an hour to order food because our server didn’t come back to tell us about our wine order and after 45 minutes we had to ask for a manager to get any help at all. Bad service bad dinner experience. Would not recommend this place at all.

    Outstanding food. 3 of us had the salmon, one had the pork chop. One of the best meals I've had in Madison in a couple years. Great place to take friends who aren't from Madison. I appreciated the kindness of validating the parking. Also, the hotel lobby is beautiful. Definitely will be back.

    The view from our table at the window was beautiful. The room was a bit too cold with outside temps being low and air conditioning still running. We had a Wedge and Caesar salads which were delicious. Bread should be included with salads instead of as an extra cost from the appetizer menu. Also, the soup was very tasty but overpriced at $12.00 for a very small amount.

    Beautiful restaurant. I would come back based on that alone. View of lake is outstanding. Bread board was some of the best bread ive ever had. We all got the lamb and it was really delicious. Big potion of lamb. chocolate cake is divine. Had the most perfect raspberries.

    Enjoyed a sumptuous dinner with a beautiful view of the lake at sunset. My GnT with their special gin was exceptionally refreshing-- and with a violet hue, it looked like summer in a glass. My 6 oz. steak filet was divine: served over a thin layer of potato puree which sat atop a broiled wedge of radicchio lettuce, with a reduced sauce decorating the plate. Delicious! The smoked trout dip and truffle fries as starters were tasty. The Caesar was good; I would have preferred finely grated parmesan instead of the coarsely grated-- but that's nitpicking. Warm, attentive service by Natasha, and the whole team. Definitely made our trip to Madison and celebrating my son's birthday special.

    The Statehouse is an easy 4-star review because of its beautiful location on the lake. The food quality is reliable quality and is very good. My last experience was giving 3.5-star energy because the devil is in the details, and several details were amiss. Mushroom bruschetta was lukewarm, filet was underdone

    My wife and I booked a last-minute table at the Statehouse to celebrate our anniversary after a hectic day of travel, having driven all the way from Lake Superior and dropped off the kids with Grandpa. We were exhausted and prepared for disappointment, but that rare thing happened: our expectations were exceeded. The waitress was sweet, the cocktails professionally made, and the food terrific. We got lucky with the weather, and the sunset was honestly among the most beautiful we had ever seen. It really cheered us up. Pricey but happy to spend it after all.
