    The overall food experience was disappointing - quality and selection and would be the reason I would not return. It’s a beautiful restaurant, with incredible views and the staff were friendly and helpful but unfortunately that doesn’t make up for the poor food experience.

    We enjoyed our meal and the food was good but quite expensive for what you get. The osso bucco was delicious but the price was steep at $43. We were surprised that the menu wasn't more extensive. The wine list was also limited and only offered lower range wines. The decor is very masculine and heavy with lots of wood. It does have a nice view and a nice outdoor patio seating area.

    Appetizers were good. My old fashioned was strong like I like it. As POC we had a couple of odd interactions with staff. One of our allergy accommodations was ignored and some of our entree items were significantly overcooked

    This was my first time visiting The Statehouse with my fiancé. Our reservation was for 6:45PM, and we didn’t get seated until around 7:20PM. I ordered the filet (market price on the menu) and my fiancé ordered the brisket sandwich. The filet was OK, not great, and it was $64, which I thought was high for the quality of the meal. I would not order it again. The brisket was dry and similar to jerky, my fiancé said it was terrible. I would also like to note, there were 5 bartenders working the bar, and we only saw 2 waitresses in the restaurant. The service was very slow and the restaurant was understaffed.

    Our family dinner of 6 for a special occasion was perfectly paced over 2 hours. Shared appetizers of Brussel Sprouts and cheese curds that were delicious. Autumn squash soup was the best we ever had. Green sslads with roasted grape tomatoes were yum. Entrees of fish, pasta, pork chop and chicken were superb. Was a memorable dinner.

    This was an amazing experience! We came for date night, after ice skating. The food was AMAZING! I had the garganelli pasta, and my husband had the pork chop. Both were practically inhaled by us. So delicious! We then shared the cookie skillet, which was heavenly. We will both be back for sure!

    Came here on a recommendation to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. They were clearly understaffed and those staff that was there were under-trained. Poor service from seating to paying the check and we had errors on every single course ordered. The food came quickly and was enjoyable.

    Food and service was good. A bit disappointed as the menu that I linked to from the reservation included items we wanted but weren’t on the menu in the restaurant, like the fondue. Also food was good but seemed a bit overpriced for what it was.

    New Years Eve dinner.Our server was great, lovely, friendly, knowledgeable with recommendations and did her best to get us our food in a timely fashion when we told her we had tickets…. There was quite the delay on drinks , but she did mention the bar was behind. Prices were surprisingly great. The only reason, I didn’t give it a 5 was due to another lady coming to our table trying to pick up our charcuterie board which we stated we were not done with, but she stated she was trying to make room for the food, didn’t offer to put it in a box and was ready to remove it… made no sense, we still had plenty of food on there. ….this part was super annoying making us feel rushed to start eating it and demonstrated very unpolished staff for an establishment such as this one.

    Lovely dining room. Service was generally good, but a bit slow and the server often had to make several trips because they forgot something. Food generally good too but not outstanding. Overall a nice dinner, but was a bit put off by a surprise "service fee" of 20% on the bill. The server insinuated that this was not the tip and we were only a party of 4 so automatic gratuity was just unexpected.

    I originally thought that 3:15 pm would be a weird time for dinner but it turned out to be great. We got a table near the window. Excellent view of the lake and the sky changing with sunset. We had three different entrees and we were all pleased with the quality and taste. Service was very nice, but that might be because we were the “easy” table. You will be at the top of my list for special occasion dinners. Thanks & happy holidays.

    We have been to The Statehouse a number of times and always enjoyed it. Last night was different. The hostess didn’t say a word to us, not a welcome, not enjoy, nothing. She seemed to be going through the motions. Our servers were great as usual. The kitchen seemed to be off its game as well. Fried fish seemed to be made with old oil. It was dark brown, not golden, and tasted like old oil. The pasta was over-sauced on over cooked penne. Very disappointing.

    A bit under-staffed. Came for a lunch to celebrate a good medical result. No bartender… so no celebratory Bloody Mary. Searched five minutes as we were leaving for a human being to validate our parking ticket. “Supervisor” seemed a bit stressed and unfriendly. Waitress was delightful (Brianna?). Food was all great. Served promptly. Especially liked the trout spread appetizer and the tomato soup. View of Lake Mendota is outstanding.

    Exceptional food and service all around - the only exception was the parking rate - we dined for 2-1/4 hrs and were charged for 3 hours (no rounding up or down) - the cost of which was 1/2 that of a luncheon entree.
