Food was okay. There are so many other wonderful restaurants in the area that I would discourage anyone from visiting L'Etiole. The restaurant does have a reputation around town for being pompeous, but you'd be shocked at the poor service and the arrogant attitude of the employees. The bathroom is awful. The decorations on the table are cheap plastic which doesn't bother me, but the fact that its the most expensive (or at least top 5) in Madison makes you wonder why they charge so much.
