We were a table of 3 this time. We are never disappointed and this time was no accepting. Our service and our meal was phenomenal. Absolutely worth every penny and look forward to many more experiences with WISH.

Filet’s were cooked perfectly: medium and medium rare. The flavor was great! Also ordered Ahi tuna and lobster bisque. Both were excellent. Really enjoyed the music: 1940’s.

Guest behind us were very loud and acting rude to people passing by. (Not WISH fault) The wagyu steak was very chewy, I only ate 3 pieces it was so bad. Everything else was fantastic as usual

Incredible food and service. Tried the specials this time - porterhouse steak and a scallops risotto dish. Both were amazing! Great wine list. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return!

Great restaurant! Very friendly service, delicious food, and higher end choices in an area where this is hard to find. Oscar-style steak was amazing, cheese curds were great. Lobster bisque was delicious. Very good wine choices. Old fashioned was great as well.

Highly recommend!

We love Wish, it’s one of our favorite places to eat. And this was the first time we’d been out since the new social distancing requirements. They did a great job social distancing in the dining room. Lots of room between tables, our server had a mask and stayed back. The bar was a different story. There were way too many people in there and social distancing was not maintained. We spent the 30+ minutes waiting for our reserved table to be ready outside in the parking lot because we didn’t feel safe inside the bar due to the number of people. It was also disappointing to see the hostess wear her mask incorrectly. Food was fantastic as always. Our server was phenomenal. We’ll be back, but it won’t be until it’s safer.

Our favorite steak house in Central Wisconsin. We have never been disappointed, steak was perfect! Appetizer was wonderful and so were the desserts.

We enjoy coming here as an annual tradition at the holiday time. They are great at accommodating a large group including 2 children (that get restless). The service was outstanding. There were a couple of missteps with plating (wrong steak being served to the child and missing the mushrooms on another steak) but overall a good experience.

First time here. Very disappointed. Didn't have our reservation that was made over Open Table. Service was sssooo ssssllllllooooowwwwww. Complimentary bread had to be asked for, then took 20 minutes for something they just heated up. 5 to 10 minutes to get refilled glasses back after they took them, every time. Over an hour before food came. No steak knives brought out until we asked for them, we both had steak. Food presentation was nonexistant. Foods wasn't bad, but fairly plain and way, way over priced.

They think they tried, but fell very, very short of the mark.

Most likely won't be back.

Very nice steak house. Food was very good. Thought the price was high for the value and for the area. I'd recommend this steak house to someone not concerned about the price and just wants a very good steak. One of my vendors was picking up the tab, otherwise I would never spend that much money for a steak dinner.

Took another couple out for a nice evening. The poor service started immediately as we ordered some drinks and it took 20 minutes to get those. After that we ordered our food and an appetizer. Our appetizer arrived another 30 minutes later. By the time we got our food almost 2 hours had passed and our waiter was not the least sympathetic. Our food was good but nothing you couldn’t have gotten at any other steak joint in the area.

We sat outside, the food was good but the service... not so much. Maybe it was because we were outside that the waitress forgot about us ?? I will go back hopefully the service will be better

We made our reservations on-line the same day close to the time we wished to dine. I recommend calling the restaurant directly as they do not check their online reservations later in the day. They were not expecting us. Bar service was especially slow as was our initial contact with our server (hostess had to ask twice for us to be addressed). We were seated over 20+ min before our cocktails were received. Fortunately, the meal delivery was well-paced and we were not rushed once our drinks did arrive.
