I would have preferred to have utilized some of the empty tables to give us a little more elbow room between us and the other guests, but otherwise it was perfect.

A table of 15 we were, with one of our guests extremely demanding (due to age). On top of it all, the restaurant was packed! Our waiter was able to manage all of it, including demanding Uncle David without a glitch. Incredible! And the food was outstanding. Friday night fish fry was introduced to my California relatives, along with deep-fried cheese curds and the cheese ball. The only ding would be in a couple of cocktails. People's preferences of course, but their Manhatten was mediocre. Don't forget to order desserts.

This experience was our second one. This last summer we brought half the family and were thoroughly pleased with the food and service. So, I now brought the entire family for another great experience. All was great except for 2 of the steaks, NY Strip that was unusually thin in portion and a Ribeye that was too done. It wasn't a situation that we felt necessitated drawing to the attention of Mary, our server. Otherwise, the overall experience was consistently excellent as previous. We will return.

The fried Lake perch was just hollow breading!!! Virtually no fish inside. The small amount of fish inside was dried up. It was the worst fish that the two people whom ordered it had ever eaten. Would never order the lake perch again!!! The fried cod was good, spicy chicken Alfredo good and the broasted chicken good. French fries good, cheesy brussel sprouts good. Wine pours seemed kind of skimpy for the price. We've all had very good food there on previous visits, but this was not up to any standard.

My only complaint is the food came way too fast. Just got our drinks and our salads came with entrees not too soon after. Need a better pace, but do love the place. Service was very friendly and attentive.
Business Response:
Thank you Jean, glad you enjoy The Hilltop, we'll talk to the staff regarding the pace.

This is truly a hidden gem. I've told many people that the expensive restaurants in Madison don't compare to the Hilltop. Much better food, service and ambience. We'll be back for sure.

Thank you so much Tony! This means a lot as there are many amazing restaurants in Madison. Hope to see you bak soon!

Really wished I could've gotten my creamy horseradish sauce I asked for but never received. I was so excited for it because not many places offer that with prime rib.
