Very impressed with this place. Everything was excellent. Great service, romantic ambiance and wonderful food. Loved the small salad and small entree options. Had the ratatouille appetizer which was excellent, followed by roasted romaine salad and scallops as main dish. My partner had duck leg which was also very good. Reservation was early so were able to take advantage of... More

A group of six of us visited 43 North recently. It was around 7 pm on a week night. We had reservations but we didn't need them as there were very few patrons. We weren't quite ready to order when our waiter came by to take our drink order, and he seemed mildly put out by that. He seemed put... More

As far as dining in Madison, Wisconsin goes, this is without question the worst restaurant I have ever had the displeasure of dining at. The cavalcade of culinary disasters was only bettered by the overbearing, at times awkward service, which together made for an almost night-killing meal. To start off, the restaurant was empty when we walked in; not a... More

Our family is a mix of vegans, vegetarians, and meat lovers, so it's not easy for us to find restaurants that we all love. We had 6 in our group and we were placed in a little backroom, which turned out great because it felt like our own private area (we did feel sorry for the table for two that... More

Dinner at 43 North was very nice. We were at the restaurant on a Tuesday evening. As is our practice, I had reserved a table. this proved not to be necessary. We were given a choice of tables when we arrived. Our server was very knowledgeable and answered many questions for us. We were delighted with the last bottles sale... More

Our new favorite restaurant in Madison! Everything was fantastic, creative and fun! The bread butter and jam (lavender jelly) was excellent, the salmon tartar perfect, salads fresh and yummy, I had the half order of game hen which was prepared perfectly and easy to eat (and filling, the gravy was very rich but tasty) and my husband has a half...

43 North has a very creative and interesting menu that is also very flexible. Everything comes in small or large plates. I had Salmon Tartar (excellent, with a very nice sauce but I couldn't tell you what it was), a wonderfully fresh and understated greens salad with vinaigrette, a small dish of game hen prepared very well and served with...

We decided to come here for an early dinner before a show at the Overture Center. We were delighted by everything that we ate. To start off, we had the Baked Dates with Goat Cheese, and they are wonderfully decadent! We had flavorful and original salads. a grilled Ceasar and a Turnip, Radish, Bacon salad. We had small plates of... More

We had a group of ten during graduation weekend, and although they don't accept regular reservations, they allowed us to make a reservation for a private room, where we were treated to excellent service and great food. We made a lot of good natured noise, and stayed past closing, but no one complained. In fact, when I tried to apologize... More
