Took a coworker for lunch for Madison Restaurant Week. Service was exceptional. Food was quite good as well. The mashed potatoes were perfectly whipped, and the herb chicken was juicy. The desserts were quite yummy and cute - mini-cheesecakes in a shot glass. That may have been a Restaurant Week special.

We did a family of 10 reservation after an overture center event. Service and food were excellent. We had a range of ages. Most accommodating. Brought food out early for young children.
Just did a 5 person girls afternoon outing dinner. Again very pleased.

Disappointing - both for drinks and the food. Starting with drinks: the beer I wanted was sold out, the replacement was poor. Being in Wisconsin and only having one IPA on tap, which is from California, is not good. My second drink was a jalisco mule that was way too sweet.
Truffled fries were really poor - especially for that price. Short rib sandwich was ok.
They also turned down the lights so far that I could barely see my food.

Our steak was amazing and our waitress was well versed on the menu and drinks. We couldn't have had a better dining experience. Only disappointment was that they would not accept our open table gift certificate, which surprisied us, as we made our reservations through open table.

The calamari app is the best! I love to get a fire grilled lettuce wedge as well! I had the sea bass with fresh spring risotto and my husband had their steak with grilled shrimp with twice baked potato and fresh beans. It all was excellent!
Very noisy and felt pressure to eat and leave
Our table was very close to the door. A lot going on in the entry way. Wanted a 5:30 reservation but could only get 5:15 or 5:45 yet when we arrived at 5:15 we could be seated right away. We were never asked if we wanted one or two checks. If two checks were not an option there wasn't anything that told us that. We felt some pressure to leave once we had completed eating but still had drinks.

I've been to Bonfyre twice, and I haven't been blown out of the water either times. The appetizer was so awesome! But my entree was just so-so. The ambiance is nice, too. I think part of it may had to do with th chaos of graduation weekend! Our server was attentive and our food was quick.
First time and will be back!
Ashley was a great server, she seemed to just be around the corner if we needed anything. Loved the atmosphere. Best moscato I have had in a long time. Very impressed with the prices of food for what you get, very good quality and excellent. We will definitely be back.
Looking for a new place to try for Secial Occasion
Was looking kind of last minute for a new place to try to take my parents and girlfriends parents to meet for the first time. Was told good things about Bonfyre from a friend and read good reviews online. Easy to find, parking lot was a little tight for our truck but was fine. Noticed there was an outside dinning area, might have to come back to experience that. Was greeted right away, friendly service. Sat in a booth, was comfortable and felt private so no one heard our conversations nor did we hear anyone else's which was nice. Some TVs in view. Table was spacious and you didn't feel crowded or far away from one another while you ate. Food was delicious and timely. Our waitress checked on us often, but not too often to be interrupting which was nice as well. Only thing that bothered us was that the lighting was a touch too dark to read our menus well, but once those were no longer needed, the lighting was fine for conversation. We enjoyed our evening and I myself would recommend Bonfyre and will return in the future.

What stood out was the noise and the prices. For 26 I got 2 shrimp, 2 scallops and about a 2 ounce piece of salmon that was dry. It is a very noisy place, noisy enough to make it hard to talk to folks sitting next to you. The server was having a tough time working on more than one table which cause delays in service to ours in getting things delivered and more service to be offered. It has been a while since Ihad gone to Bonfyre. And as others have said, it was good, but not good enough to be someplace that I would go out of my way to visit. Many other places in Madison area that are just as good or better, that have more reasonable prices.
