Great service at a Sunday brunch

Great management was evident when we had a Sunday brunch. Food was good, service was outstanding, and the bathrooms were clean.

Ok, Tory Miller is supposed to be wonderful. He took over L'Etoile from Odessa Piper several years ago and folks give it great reviews. While he continued Odessa's use of local and organic providers (and the Madison area has some spectacular ones), I find Miller's food fussy, overly complicated and too pretentious. For better quality, clearer more intense flavors, and... More

Tasty treats locally sourced: tough to get better than that. Our only regret is that they had run out of some of the items that looked tantalizing, and we were there before 8pm. Service was very good: professional, punctual. Beautiful location! It is LOUD though: one of us found it unpleasantly so.

Busy at lunchtime just across from State capitol square bu the bartender kept the food and drinks moving at breakneck pace. Great service, delicious fusion menu plus interesting twists to casual cafe fare. Bibimbap was huge with lots of vegies, mildly spicy meat and soft egg. Super dark chocolate cookie a great dessert. Other diners commented on the unexpectedly reasonable... More

The good is great looking. The salad and cheese and drinks are great. The taste of the food lacks in a big way. We had eggs Benedict, breakfast sandwich and scramble. None of the three were memorable our worth eating if you love pretty food go here. If you want great tasting food that is unique, like me, don't bother... More

Very popular. Had to wait about an hour for a table for 6 on a Monday night. Since there's no table service at outdoor tables (that's right), we bought drinks at bar and carried them outside to wait for table. Food was outstanding :)

Went to Graze for my birthday dinner with friends. We didn't have reservations, so we popped into L'etoile next door for drinks while we waited. The wait was manageable for a busy Friday night. We ordered devilled eggs for a starter which were nice, but the bibimbap was awesome. The rice was nicely crisped on the outside, the sauce was... More

We attended the Graze for a Sunday brunch with our daughter a few months back .. great food, amazing service, good menu choice and fair pricing. It is a comfortable interesting space during the day and I can only imagine how great that the atmosphere is after dark with the capitol building all lit up .. if you haven't been... More

They don't take reservations so plan on hanging out for awhile before you are seated. If you are lucky, you can get a seat at the bar but don't bank on that. We ordered drinks while waiting a hour for a table and never did score seats at the bar. It's not easy finding a place to stand with your... More

Graze has excellent brunch, specials and cocktails. It's a great place to take out of town visitors. The locavore thing, however, isn't cheap. Great for special occasions!
