Oh good gracious me, what a horrid disappointment The Admiralty Dining Room proved to be on both occasions I visited it with friends. The restaurant itself is lovely, part of a multi-million dollar rebuilding and re-envisioning of Madison's classic Edgewater Hotel. However, this aesthetic deliciousness only makes the wretchedness of the food and service more of a bizarre insult. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the B&B we were staying at as being a great place to celebrate my wife's birthday. We arrived early for our reservation and the hostess seemed a little confused, but she did seat us at a nice table by the windows with a great vied of the lake. They wine list that... More

This restaurant is classic, refined, and elegant, and it serves really good food! The Admiralty Room of the Edgewater Hotel looks like it has been there forever, but it only dates back to the 1970's. The view of Lake Mendota through huge windows is reason enough to come here, but the service and food are equal to the setting. My... More

The Admiralty Room maintains a high quality of food and service combined with an excellent view of Lake Mendota. Prices are similar to other quality restaurants in the Madison area. We dined there recently (June 15) to celebrate an anniversary with friends and had delicious food and outstanding service--as usual.

We celebrated our daughter's graduation from University of Wisconsin last Friday at this classy restaurant. Being from the Chicago area we are used to fine restaurants and The Admiralty is one of the nicest places we have dined at. The bread they serve with the meal is delicious!

The Admiralty Room delivers and is a favorite of ours. We recently had dinner there with our adult children. The only thing missing was being able to watch the sun set over the lake, but that's a summer thing given the early hour it gets dark in the winter. We were warmly greeted by the maitre 'd and promptly seated.... More

I think The Admiralty Room is one of Madison's best restaurants for a romantic dinner. It is located in the Edgewater Hotel located right on Lake Mendota. The tables have white tableclothes and napkins, the lighting is dim enough for the ambiance, but not so dim that you can't read the menu. We were seated at a table with a... More

THis restaurant has the best view in the city, and is seldom loud or crowded. The food is old-fashioned to a fault. WHen it comes to Caesar salads and crepes suzette this is great. Other dishes seem pretty dated. The over 70 set love this place. One seldom sees anyone under the aged of 45. It is very expensive by... More

It's not often I can title a restaurant review with this kind of high praise. But when my wife and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary recently at the Admiralty Dining Room in the Edgewater Hotel we were treated so well in a setting so idyllic with food so excellent than no other title will do. The Admiralty is a... More
