This was one of my favorite restaurants during our twice yearly visits to Madison, but definitely slipped on this trip. My favorite meal, day boat scallops, has been changed, and no longer has parsnip potatoes, shiitake mushrooms, or crispy bacon. Squid ink risotto just doesn't make it! We were there early and they were already out of the lettuce for the salad I ordered. The bread basket, which used to be loaded with a delicious variety of breads, had just onie and a cracker. The sauces are no longer offered, and the service was lackadaisical. The servers were visiting at the desk, even though there were very few diners. My water was never refilled. Such a shame! It seems like they've written off serving dinner.
On the other hand, I had lunch twice and it was great. I had the soup and salad bar both times, and it had six soups to choose from and a huge variety of salad ingredients. I'm sure everyone could find a soup and salad ingredients to their liking. I had the chicken tortilla soup both days, as it was so good I couldn't bring myself to try another.
