Lots of interesting menu items here, some we liked, some we didn't. You don't get a lot of food for your money, so I found the value per quantity low. We're not gourmet people so maybe our choice of restaurant was bad. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You sit at long communal tables which we unexpectedly liked because we enjoyed talking with the interesting folks sitting next to us.

My husband and I went here because we had heard it was good and wanted to try it. We loved the food and atmosphere. They have small plate and were able to enjoy three or four of them, which we like to share so that worked out great. Would highly recommend it!

It is always difficult to live up to high expectations, and once James Beard mentions your name, those expectations rise through the roof. Yet Pig exceeded those expectations for me. Visiting with a group of six, we were able to try many interesting dishes, and each was more impressive than the last. If something sounds good, TRY IT! None of the dishes are too expensive, and we left quite full. And definitely save room for dessert!

If you watch Top Chef, you see all these types off delicacies that you can't find just anywhere. Well, here they have a nice selection of them - pork belly, rabbit pate, octopus and sweet breads. All are in small plates, so order many and share. A nice even out with friends and great foods.

Diverse, creative, beautiful, delicious food with excellent service. Protein overload. A high point of Madison visit. Surprisingly inexpensive. We took 10 people here for dinner, no reservation (they don't accept them), the group was handled efficiently and generously, and a huge dinner including wine only ended up costing about $55 per person. Not to be missed.
