The service, food, and atmosphere were excellent!
Dinner reservations at 8:30, so the place was getting quiet, which was perfect for our datenight. Great service and foot. Great lakefront view. Highly suggest. Portions were correct and the skillet cookie for dessert was awesome.
This has been one of our few favorite spots in town, but this past Mother’s Day meal, hopefully not representative, took a turn for the worse. We had a 1:30pm lunch, so the restaurant was half empty but the service was still lacking and the food was just so so...hopefully, they didn’t lose their good chef.
This Mother's Day Buffet was advertised as a gourmet, multiple course offering. We arrived and were not able to be seated immediately, and when we were seated the place was only 1/3 full. We had brought our drinks from the bar and sat a long time before a server helped us. She took our orders for the courses and then we did not see anyone until the second course arrived, a garlic potato soup. It was ok. The server stopped by then and we requested our first course (Pastries and Danishs). She apologized and brought them. They were vending machine level pastries/Danishs. The main came and I can compare it to hospital food. It was cold, the potatoes were instant and overall it was a horrible experience. I ordered wine and it had sediment on the bottom which is easily preventable if you know how to pour wine. The desert was a Twix bar with frosting on it and a very small scoop of chocolate ice cream. To say the least for a $50 per person buffet it was the worst buffet I have ever experienced. Stay away. This speaks to poor management and poor cooking staff.
Saturday brunch. Dry potatoes, weak coffee. Odd smokey bacon. Went to get an omelette, and chef was missing. Nice servers.
Always wonderful. The wait staff is exceptional and Wisconsin nice. The view is special.
Lovely birthday lunch. Appreciated the dessert and presentation.
Wonderful spending Easter brunch with family at The Statehouse!
Much improved from our first visit. Do not like the servers wearing jeans-to informal especially for the image you are trying to promote. I truly want the Edgewater to be successful. The food in the restaurant down by the lake is too expensive. I ordered a crab salad. Needed a microscope to find the crab. Loved that our dog was welcome. Service at the spa was a nightmare. I refuse to give my credit card number when booking on line. Made a reservation on the phone to be told when I arrived I didn’t have an appointment. It took forever for someone to answer the phone in the first place.
We really enjoyed our dinner at the Statehouse. Our waitress, Jodie is excellent, very attentive,friendly and knowledgeable about everything, she is always aware of what we need and like. The food is always prepared exactly as we like .
We had not been to the Edgewater since the renovation and were very impressed. The food, service and overall experience was exceptional.
The Steak is a 5 star restaurant...we were greeted by the host wishing us a Happy anniversary and took us to a beautiful table by the water . Our sever Paige was a excellent waitress and catered to us in every way . We are in the business ourselves as my husband is a chef and I am also a server . The food was amazing , but it is a bit pricey, but we understand why . We had lovely evening and want to thank you for making our evening a very special one. Thank you Rodney and Linda Childs Freeport Illinois
Outstanding service received from general manager (accommodating request for window lakeside view) and the waiter with the champagne flutes celebrating retirement event. Two Illinois guests enjoyed The Edgewater and returning for future events. Thanks for the outstanding staff and delicious luncheon menu.
Outstanding service and wonderfully fresh food plus an environment that was upscale yet not stuffy, and with a noise level that is great for having a conversation without having to raise your voice.
We live in Madison and have never been. The Statehouse was nothing short of wonderful. The ambiance, the bar, our server, the food, the all over experience was very special and would definitely recommend.
Waited about 10 minutes after being sat for a waitress to stop by despite the place being 75% empty. Food took longer than expected to arrive only to find out why...most everything was cold, clearly sat for at least 5 minutes
I had a wonderful lunch at the Statehouse. Our server was so nice and made a birthday lunch very special. Thank you!
Delicious dinner - extra bonus February special half price bottles of wine.
Beautiful view but the food is terrible. Omelets and toast were served cold. The hash browns can only be described as hockey pucks and not edible. We would have gotten better food at McDonalds. Expected much better from the Edgewater Hotel. If I could give zero stars I would. Extremely disappointing.
Super lunch! Thank you! Best place to see the lake and dine in a lovely dining room! Always great!
The Statehouse was amazing! We'd highly recommend this restaurant!!
We had a great evening at The Statehouse. Food was delicious and our service all the way from our host to the waiter (Quinton) was top notch. We would definitely return!
The food was delicious and the service wonderful! Great way to spend Valentine's Day!
We love The Statehouse and enjoy dining there regularly, the food is great and the service is top notch. We will continue to dine there often.
Service was friendly and professional. Food was very good, somewhat small on portion size
Service was excellent. The food was fantastic. Loved it!!
We enjoyed the venue and setting. The food was a very small portion. I received a hangar steak that was barely warm, and the portion was extremely small for the price. What was supposed to be a value was a 100 meal on restaurant week. Hangar steak is a lesser cut and is not that expensive, I thought I would get value with this meal and I did not. I would not recommend the restaurant to people that are used to a good meal for a reasonable price...
Fantastic old fashions, great service and food. Was surprised at the dress code for the servers at such a nice establishment. Blue jeans and farmer style aprons. Not appealing
This was our first visit to The Statehouse. We made our choice for Sunday brunch so as to enjoy the lakeside view. We were disappointed with the food quality. Specifically, the food was not served hot. The hash browns were undercooked and flavorless. The toast was hardly toasted. The servers were friendly, but were not well trained and were generally inattentive. Our overall experience was well below what we generally find in other Madison establishments.
It is my birthday and I got the free dessert as a reward! The steak is great!
A little too expensive. $16 Martini? Food was very well prepared.
Excellent food. However, for a restaurant that has a fine dining ambiance, wait staff and water servers should not wear blue jeans.
New Years Eve dinner. It was busy and we had to wait quite a bit for our food but it was worth the wait! Delicious!
Good service. Good food.
4 of us dined at The Statehouse early evening - 6 pm - on New Year’s Eve. Although it was quite full by the time we left it was still possible to hold a conversation. We liked that the tables are not so close together. The service was excellent as was the prix fixé menu. There were adequate choices on the menu. We’d do it again, maybe not waiting for New Year’s Eve!
Amazing view and excellent food. The price is a little on the high end but well worth it. The staff is friendly. Only negative is that it took a bit to be seated even with reservations. Other than that, it was a good experience.
Beautiful surroundings. Excellent service. Fabulous food. We were there on a Thursday night and it was not crowded. Expensive, but not out of line for a fancy place (but dress-up is not required). We will be back.
Great setting and ambiance. Views are beautiful and will want to come back to in the summer. Menu is a bit eclectic with a mix of items but no theme. Group of 5 and I'd say it was 50/50 on dishes that were great and one that were good/o.k. Parking is the big hassle here and I don't think they validate.
Very good food, lovely view. Little expensive and maybe could have used another server, but overall we had a lovely lunch to celebrate our Holidays.
