“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

My husband & I had a lovely anniversary dinner here. The wait-staff was so very friendly. We had brought a bottle of our own wine which the restaurant charged us a $15 corkage fee, which is very reasonalbe. Bread for the table never came, and when asked about bread, we were told that they were out due to a 500 person dinner at their banquet facility area.
My Short Rib dinner was amazing. Each entree comes with 3 different dipping sauces to enhance your meal in a variety of ways. This we thought was very fun & interesting. My husband's NY Strip with mushrooms was a bit overcooked and the variety of mushrooms were not cooked completely thus having to spit them out due to how chewy they were.
We were served an interesting & well-recieved dessert which was complementary due to our anniversary.
Overall, we would try this restaurant & hotel again. It was so nice to come into Madison & have a lovely evening of cocktails, dinner, & room without ever having to leave the hotel.

“Quick and cheap”

For only $7 the continental included coffee and when asked they filled a cup to go I received a hot bowl of oatmeal, and fresh fruit. When requested they filled a coffee cup for me to go, which was great!

“Totally awesome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

Friendly staff and excellent service. I enjoyed the ambiance the large open room concept with minimum clutter. Family of 4 in a 2 queen bed room can stay comfortably. The kids are teens so space is important. The restaurant in the hotel serve excellent choices of food and the wait staff is super cool!!!
Highly recommend when you go to Madison...
Pick this hotel.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Best salad bar. Also terrific desserts. They have a great breakfast too. In the evening the menu is fresh and uses local veggies and meat. The servers are very knowledgeable.
