    We've enjoyed brunch and dinner at the Statehouse on many occasions. This Saturday (4/20 for a 12:15 reservation) was our first disappointment. Our waiter began the fiasco with telling us how tired he was, having gone to bed late the night before. We ordered a bottle of Viognier, which he brought us about 25' later. He struggled with the cork and had someone else open the bottle for him. The bottle was room temperature. We had to ask for a cooler and expected that he might substitute an appropriately chilled bottle, but no such luck. Service throughout the meal was slow and inattentive. I hope this is not a sign of things to come at the Statehouse. Tom Hirsch

    We had dinner for my son’s birthday and it was amazing. The food was great and the views of the lake are outstanding! Our waiter Luis did a fantastic job with recommendations and great service. We definitely will return and recommend this restaurant to everyone for any occasion.

    The service was excellent and engaging. We ordered several small dishes to share between the two of us and unlike some places, were not made to feel cheap for doing so. The food was great. We are accomplished cooks ourselves, only reason for 4 rather than 5, we reserve 5 for exceptional. The food was very good, portions and flavor at the right price point.

    Beautiful place to see the sun set. Had read great things about the restaurant. Will NOT return. Asked for tonic received San Peligrino , services was horrible, they kept trying to take our meals away before we finished. Ordered wine and the waiter argued with me. Didnt care for it but he wouldn’t change it. Spent $24.00 on wine we left on the table. Spend your money somewhere else!

    The only reason to go here is the view and the brunch is good. But dinner is not. The ceasar salad was very soggy and the salmon entree came with a mound of avocado with nothing to put it on. The fish fry was just that, a fry. The service has never been great and the bar was extremely overwhelmed and service nonexistent.

    Sadly, this restaurant failed on all fronts except having an amazing view. It took over a half hour for a server to approach us, and then another hour for our first cocktail to arrive. Our marginal food arrived, with the salad being dropped off after we began eating. Multiple attempts to resolve our issue with a manager failed as he was too busy flirting with the hostess. We had to stand up to get our check and then someone disappeared with our credit cards for another 15 minutes. This is a prime example of how poor service will totally kill an evening out. I’m thinking the wait staff were short staffed but maybe the hostess and managers should have been in the dining room paying attention to what was happening. This place was recommended by two people- I will never recommend this place .

    We had a wonderful Easter brunch experience. Can’t wait to go back for more. The place was crowded and busy, but the staff was very attentive and friendly. We were lucky to have a table by the windows overlooking the lake. Our table enjoyed the ‘mimosa sampler’. The plates were plenty full with food. The French toast slices were light and fluffy. It was plenty of whipped cream and fruit to complement the dish. The side of scrambled eggs was prepared perfectly, not overcooked or runny. The hashbrowns, prepared with some red and green peppers, we’re also very tasty. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Perfectly salted; no need to add more salt. What I will order the next time will be the smoked salmon Benedict. It’s a wonderfully balanced dish. The salmon had a nice smokey flavor, not a strong salmon taste at all. The eggs were also poached perfectly, with the runny yolk complementing creaminess of the sauce. Capers add a nice little bite to the whole dish. I had gone to the state house several years ago and did not have a good experience. Today’s brunch experience was certainly a redemption. I can’t wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

The service by our server and server staff were excellent, water glasses were promptly filled, food came in a timely manner, hot, and delicious as always. The food and service is consistently excellent every time. Thank you for a lovely experience.

    Sous vide medium rare beef Wellington was super-tough and chewy. Halibut was very good. Pasta with blue cheese and cream and watercress was all cream. Appetizers (octopus, wedge, and can't remember last one) were delicious. Dessert was good.

    The breakfast is OK, I had a vegetable omelette, and my husband had the huevos rancheros, he said his was not very good. Beautiful view in the daytime overlooking the lake. At night you cannot see the view, so if you want the view, go during the day. NY steak was cooked medium vs medium rare, ceasar salad doesn’t have much flavor- I don’t recommend. Cheese curds are ok but not melted - a little firmer. The bar is cute but when there are too many people, the staff cannot handle it and you will never get anyone to take your drink order. They really need better service in the bar area.

    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.
