“Wow!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I had heard good things about the place but was wary as they don't take reservations. Don't let that fact stop you from eating at this place! We had a lovely drink while waiting for a table. And it was so worth the wait! Also while they are known for what they do with meat, we had an amazing vegetarian dish and a fish dish that was outstanding. They do great things with food. Check this place out!

“Yummy”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you want to get a table here, get here early and even then, you might wait a bit. Not many tables, but when you finally sit down, you will be so happy. And I should say that while you are waiting, they have an impressive bar menu, so no worries.

Went here with my son and his girlfriend, college students. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We shared everything and everything was delicious, fresh and flavorful.
We will be back. Love the farm to table concept of restaurants like this.

“Gastronomic Goldmine from the Underground”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Top dining priority on a recent visit to Madison was to eat at Forequarter, the restaurant run by the Underground Food Collective. It is not the easiest place to get a meal: it is small and does not take reservations. But patience and/or earliness are amply rewarded by excellent reasonably priced cocktails, well-chosen and interesting wines, and a succession of plates of delicious food. The short menu features plates focusing on the Underground Collective's great charcuterie, artisanal cheeses, and local produce, as well as several more elaborate entree-type dishes. The superb quality of each main ingredient, is matched by the accompaniments, elevating the whole. And the made-to-order ice cream should never be skipped. The pace of service is responsive to your pace of ordering and eating, and the service staff is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the food.
