The big glass windows and street views make a meal more enjoyable. The food of course is excellent. You will want to hang out here for a while.

Awarding winning Chef Tory and his staff know what they are doing. Get a reservation! Not a large venue, so large groups is challenging.

Graze is my absolute favorite Madison restaurant. From the local, fabulous food to the stunning view of the capital, you can't get a better date night. The only downfall of this restaurant is that they do not take reservations. No matter what the season, try the beet salad. It is always amazing.

Sitting inside Graze looking over the Capitol square is a fantastic setting for consuming a cocktail and eating some delicious local foods. Most of the items in the menu are locally sourced from nearby farms but that doesn't limit the variety of dishes. A fantastic burger or an Asian inspired dish to a beer and walnut burger. All done exceptionally... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Madison. The food, ambiance, view and service are exceptional. Personally, I find the service at Graze better than their upscale restaurant next door. This is casual farm to table food at its best coupled with an architecturally exciting space and a fabulous view of the beautiful state capitol. A good choice for... More

One of those restaurants that people go to because it's thought of as the place to go. Don't waste your time or money.

My husband and I stopped for Brunch on Saturday we had gotten a gift certificate for Christmas from our daughter. We both had the Pub Burger because we wanted lunch not breakfast. The presentation made the burger look small because it was on an English muffin but it was packed full of flavor and was plenty to eat. I had... More

Came back to this once a nice restaurant when it was newly opened and found that both food quality and services declined. One of the pancakes on my husband's plate was burned to black. He asked the waitress to replace it with a non-burned one. The waitress did, but never apologized. I ordered a bibimbap burrito, which was huge in... More

The cheese curds were probably the best I've had in SE Wisconsin. The restaurant is cool and it's nice everything is locally sourced, but the brunch didn't blow me away. It reminds me of every other brunch place I've been to. The service was not very good, our server probably came to our table twice. Next time I visit Madison... More

Great location just across the street from the capitol but staff need to learn to inform visitors from out of state about hours of operations. We found this place on line and we really wanted to fine here so we called them twice about hours and reservations. They did not cooperate well and didn't inform us properly so at the... More
