“Food is always delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We've stayed at the Governor's Concourse hotel every year for the past three years and always make a point to eat here at their inhouse restaurant, the Dayton Grille. The food is always delicious and well prepared. We usually enjoy one of the entries which come with 3 dipping sauces of your choice but this time we opted for the special of the night, a blackened chicken pasta. You can always count on your entree being something special.

“Good Breakfast and lunch buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

While staying at the Madison Concourse Hotel, I ate two breakfast's and one lunch at the Dayton Street Grille. Breakfast provided you an option of a continental breakfast for around $8 or to include the hot breakfast items it was around $13. Their were plenty of choices and the breakfast items were very tasty.

I also had the lunch buffet which included salad with all of the fixings and 4 different soups. The soups were excellent, although a bit salty, they had great flavor and were hot! I was attending a meeting in the hotel and it was a great lunch without having to travel far.

“Ohh yeah! Incredible. This place rocks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

I have eaten here at least 3 times, each time better than the last. The chef is incredible; the choice of sauces sublime and the food always was 5 star. This is a hidden gem just off State Street. Highest recommendation.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012 via mobile

The Dayton Street Grille is inside the Madison Concourse Hotel, so not visible to all possible diners. We've eaten there at least half a dozen times, and have found the food exceptional. My favorite menu item is the seared scallop plate with mushrooms, bacon, and parsnip mousse. The scallops have been perfectly seared every time: crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. My husband had the seared ahi this time and raved about it. Both of us had the butternut squash soup, which was the best we've ever had. Service was very good, too. Highly recommend this restaurant!
