“Relaxing Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We had lunch here last week before our Taliesin tour. I had called ahead to reserve a table. I didn't need to this day, as it was only the second day of the season. But, probably a good idea later in the year when the crowds get bigger. The restaurant is not that big. We enjoyed a window table -beautiful view of the Wisconsin River outside.
The food was good! I had the Szechwan Salad and a glass of Wisconsin wine.

“Delicious Food - Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The lunch we had after the tour was very tasty. It was a tad on the expensive side, but we still enjoyed our meal. The views from the restaurant were terrific.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This cafe seemed to me to be an afterthought as an addition to the Taliesen Visitor's Center. The space is attractive, the view is great, but the food is uninspired and overpriced. When I was there, there were box elder bugs flying all around the interior of the restaurant. A waitress was crushing them with a napkin on the windows... All in all, not appetizing! Evidently these bugs are prolific at certain times of the year, and perhaps nothing could be done about them, but they were still gross. In closing, even leaving the bugs out of the equation, the food truly was subpar. Might be better as a place for something to drink, and then eat somewhere else.
