Never in a million years would I have dreamed that Madison could support fine dining. My visit to L'Etoile with my family was an experience that I sincerely believed could not be had in Madison. Let’s face it; Madison is not exactly a bastion of fine dining nor is it the culinary capital of the state. Perhaps that’s the impetus for L'Etoile.
The chef sources most of the menu from farms in Wisconsin. We found the ingredients fresh and very flavorful. The combinations were created to please the eye and the palate. Every dish was prepared properly and each bite complimented the next.
The wine list is appropriate for the menu; its depth and breadth were enlightening. (There are wines for every budget)
I was especially impressed with the cheese selection offered for the last course. For that moment, I felt as if I were in a fine European restaurant.
My sincere gratitude to Chef Tory Miller and his staff; for they really exemplify what a total restaurant experience is all about.
