Located on the rooftop of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Fresco is a modern dining space boasting panoramic views of the Capitol and State Street. Enjoy exceptional views of Madison while relaxing with cocktails in the all-glass lounge. Dine indoors alongside a glass wall overlooking the museum’s 7,100 square-foot sculpture garden, or sit at the garden’s edge and enjoy dinner al fresco. Fresco's menu consists of contemporary American cuisine made with fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. <br />

"this is an ideal place to dine before a performance at the overture center.
the food is good, the prices are moderate and the ambience is pleasant.

"lloyd's is located across the street from the lyric opera. particularly in the winter when
walking in the windy city can be painful this is an ideal place to have a pre-opera dinner.
the food is just fine, the waitstaff efficient and the location can't be beat.

"the food is well prepared and tasty. pleasant wait staff who are available but
busy. the breads are outstanding. the goat shank and string bean dishes were excellent.
the noise level (music plus loud conversations) is loud----not a place
for a group conversation but perfect for a loud, boisterous celebration
with very good food.

Join us for a memorable lunch or dinner at our signature restaurant, The Statehouse, or simply stop in to catch the sunset over Lake Mendota while enjoying a cocktail at the bar. Located at the corner of Langdon and Wisconsin, you’ll be comfortable in our inviting dining room and regaled by gorgeous views of the lake and surrounding area. Our beautiful restaurant serves regionally sourced, modern American cuisine imagined by Executive Chef Thomas Welther. The Statehouse Bar offers classic cocktails with new twists, an extensive wine list, and of course, the best Wisconsin craft beers.

"the restaurant is a pleasant space; well appointed. the view of the lake is beautiful. unfortunately the
food is fairly tasteless and very overpriced. so go for the view and have a dessert. after dark you
don't even have the view.
this could have been a destination must if they had the right kitchen. too bad.
