    We went to try the fish fry. Their fryer was off. Our cheese curds weren’t done on the inside. Our fish fry was undercooked on the inside and crisp on the outside. Truffle fries and mushroom bruschetta were both delicious.

    Our waitress never came back to refill my cold coffee it was one cup I finally ask the busperson The music was too loud and struggled to hear my daughter talking I found out later, the waitress AGAIN approached my daughters (while I was in the restroom) and ask them did about the music Our waitress was named Savanna She wasn’t very nice and reactive when I asked about a drink on my bill She AGAIN was going to go over to our table, and ask/talk to our daughters of what they drank Omg!!! I said absolutely not This also was a very special occasion, as Kathryn was the lead in Albert Herring opera I never tipped 10% on a bill ever I should not have tipped at all She was way too intrusive (Savannah) The pork chop was fantastic as usual, Pedro was extremely helpful and calming in the situation (manager) I feel Savannah needs better skills how to deal with adversity I will not have her as a waitress again The Brussel spouts and glaze were good, but this time, the brussel sprouts were very undercooked (about by half) The truffle fries were fantastic Diane 262-338-8933 This is the second time in 2 months the staff (not the food) has messed things up

    A limited menu of food prepared very well rather than many dishes of so-so quality. Attentive waitstaff. We were provided with champagne to help celebrate my wife’s birthday, which was a nice touch. The view overlooking Lake Mendota is lovely.

    We felt as if we were being pushed out from the time we sat down. After a few minutes the waitress brought us water and asked if we were ready to order food. I asked my wife if she wanted a glass of wine and told our waitress I would like a cocktail. She returned with the drinks and again asked if we were ready to order food. My wife said we would like to start with an appetizer. Half way through the appetizer the waitress returned and said I see you are still working on the appetizer but are you ready to order food. We placed our order for the Fish Fry. Within a minute the food was delivered. With food still on my plate the bus boy asked if I was going to eat what was left or could he take my plate. They made us feel like they didn't want us there.

    Great views but little else. All around uneven service and drinks/food. Super long wait, some orders came out but others didn’t, some meals were good while some terrible (pork chops were hockey pucks, lava cake was cold and solid in the middle), wrong orders brought out. Server seemed nice but they hardly stopped by (staffing issues?). Not worth the large bill.

    Absolutely spectacular food. Highly recommend the NY Strip. Others ordered the Filet and the Salman which were equally delicious. The octopus appetizer was tasty but a little lacking on the amount of food. Bread plate was amazing, they brought bread from Madison Sourdough Company which is a local favorite. A++

    Ambience, food and drinks were all good. Beautiful lake view and we were also treated to a fireworks show. Only thing off was the service. We waited 10 mins at our table before anyone came over. From there, we felt very rushed throughout. As an example, it seemed like the minute we put a fork down, someone was there to clear plates. Half way through our entrees the server appeared with the desert menu, noting “no rush.” I could have understood if the place was full and people were waiting but that was far from the case. I guess they were short handed or our server had a date! I am guessing this was an anomaly and I would go still go back.

    Great service and speed. Wonderful food. Although the Tavern next door needs more bartenders especially on Parents weekend. Only had one and we wanted to stop over after our meal for a drink but saw all the guests for a wedding party and only one bartender and left. Otherwise the food and service and ambiance at the Statehouse is fantastic. Will definitely be back

    I really love the Statehouse, but it was not quite as stellar as usual. My dish was amazing, but my friend’s and my spouse’s salmon was fishy and they did not eat much. Everything else went pretty smoothly, I think our waiter was maybe newer so he was a little hesitant but totally capable and friendly!

    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.
