“Great Food, a bit Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The food here really is excellent. Was excited about a good gluten free menu but the gluten free part wasn't as extensive as I would have liked. It is a pretty expensive place but a nice setting and atmosphere for a very nice dinner. I got the Graze Burger which was excellent and my girlfriend got the chicken and waffles (a favorite of hers) and she said they were amazing.

“a wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Our sandwiches were delicious, fresh, and very appealing. They have a wonderful menu and a great location across from the capital. Don't miss out!

“If you can stand the noise level this is a great location with lots of tasty choices for casual dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Great views of state capital , particularly at night. Tasty menu with great if overpriced special hamburger (secret is braised short ribs) ,micro local beers on tap, fresh oysters , fun pickle plates .. All terrific . If your young and love a place full of energy and so loud you can't hear yourself speak , you will love it , not a place for a relaxed conversation. For that, go nest door to
Le toile and pay big bucks for great food and atmosphere.

“Great time at Graze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Went here as a group of three for dinner. Personally, I liked the concept, liked the ambience and view of the Capitol, and loved the food. Interesting menu with great choices for everyone, including the vegetarian in our group. Her main course, a smoked tofu in BBQ sauce with bean puree and collard greens, was excellent. Among the starters, the pork belly was a standout dish--one of the best versions I've ever had. Great salads and the mac and cheese with pulled pork was worth the trip in and of itself. Service was both friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend Graze in Madison. Wanted to get back for the pork buns but didn't get the chance. Will have to get back at some future point.

“Excellent location, average food/drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've been here several times and keep trying to love it. The location on the square and view of the Capitol are excellent, but the food has consistently been disappointing. The long, narrow bar is not ideal for happy hour groups.
