    Outstanding special occasion restaurant. Eating here is an event that goes way beyond food quality. The food is fabulous but is rivaled by the top notch service and ambiance. Our waitress truly wanted us to have a fabulous experience and was perfectly attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere is classy and bustling in a really fun way. But yes, you pay top dollar for the evening.

    Every year we bring our family to Samba's for Thanksgiving dinner, and every year it is awesome! The grilled meat is great. Thank you for adding allergy notes to items on the salad bar, that is really helpful for us. The environment is pleasant, and the staff are wonderful. Thank you so much!

    This was the perfect place for our anniversary. Our waiter, Ignacio, was excellent - friendly, polite, excellent recommendations. The view was beautiful as we watched the last bit of the sunset and every course of the meal was delicious.

Discover Madison

Surrounded by lakes, Madison is also home to an amazing variety of cuisines. Fish fry, steak, and pasta are all local favorites that you can enjoy with a view of the lake and a bottle of fine wine. However, Swiss, French, Spanish, and Italian cuisines are also widely available around the city. Whether or not you follow a vegetarian or gluten-free diet, you'll definitely want to try the award-winning falafel, which you can find just north of downtown. Be sure to also stop by one of Madison's dairy bars, which serve far more than just a handful of cheese-centric dishes.
