I have a severe gluten intolerance. My friends are amazing and are always cautious about where we go to dinner and worried that I won't be able to find anything"safe" to eat. Tonight was no exception and the friend who was making reservations called ahead to ask about gluten free options. She was assured there were good options and followed... More

They offer great and tasty food. My favorite is their Roast Beef soup and jambalaya. The whole restaurant actually smells like bonfire.. Love it!

I had a delicious dinner here with my friend Sally on the first night of my visit to Madison. I managed to settle in at the bar for beer and appetizers on three other occasions during my two week stay. It was convenient to where I stayed, but also worth the trip.

our option was Ruth chris or bonfyre. So glad we chose bonfyre. We were seated immediately and had a great set of appetizers. The blue cheese chips were very good. I also reccomend the grilled Caesar salad. It is very good. I had the ribeye center cut and it was the perfect size and very flavorful.

I wrote a review of Bonfyre on Sept 20 and had stated that some of our favorites are missing from their menu. Nevertheless, we went back there for dinner this past weekend. While ordering, we happened to mention the 'missing' quesadillas to our server. He said that, even though they were removed from the menu, he was pretty certain they... More

Bonfyre continues to serve excellent food, every time. Today parking was a little tenuous, however, the new parking ramp provided ample room to park. "She" had the pan fried walleye and the roasted rosemary potatoes and "he" had the baby back ribs with Bonefyre mash and spicy corn. Both delicious in taste and presentation. For an appetizer, we tried the... More

On our recent visit to our son in Madison, we tried to eat at the Bonfyre on a Monday night around 7:45 p.m. We arrived hungry at the time of our reservation and were seated promptly (there seemed to be 3-4 people involved in the seating process). We then apparently became invisible, and our table which was centrally located was... More

Been here several times. Great for business lunch or casual dinner. You can make new friends or network in a relaxed atmosphere with nice décor. Good selection of beers on tap, as well as spirits. While it has a casual environment, it can be kind of pricey. The food is good, with a nice variety of dishes. Some of the... More

Great wine selection. Food selection is adequate. I'm more of a "sit at the bar and eat dinner" type of person. The service at the bar is always excellent and the food is always adequate. It's a little pricy though.
