A huge beer selection, and all beers that are off the beaten path which is refreshing. A very diverse menu, from simple sandwiches to interesting pasta dishes (I had radish fettuccine). All in all a good experience. Will be there again.

Get together before the game. 250 beers await you, along with a nice menu of food. Great Belgian beers, charcuterie plates and burgers. Had their squash soup-very good. Frites with or without truffle oil. Seating for about 100 at bar and tables. Upscale decor for a bar restaurant. On street parking. Attentive staff.

Came to Madison for a Badger game. Had some time to kill before the game so we decided to get a bite to eat. Was surprised more people were not there. The place seemed nice enough, we were seated immediately. I had the soup and half sandwich (potato/corn chowder, monsiuer croquette). Soup had a nice flavor to it, the sandwich... More

We stumble upon this place about 11pm after a Badger game to get out of the rain. They have a wonderful mix of beers on tap and bottle. Large bar area. Small eating area. The staff were nice. Odd that last call was at 1130pm when the bar was packed.

I had the pleasure of finally eating at Brasserie V this past weekend. They do not accept reservations but the bar is spacious and we were able to order appetizers while we waited for our table. The beer selection was outstanding and the wine was good. Food and ambiance was great! I ordered the pork chop and it was delicious.... More

Monroe St is the place to go in Madison if you want good food. This place not only serves unique dishes but they have the best beer menu in the state. I have tried the V Burger, Mussels and Croque-monsieur and all were delicious.

We often visit Madison and make the rounds of our favorite restaurants, but last weekend we wanted to try something different. Found Brasserie V in a brochure of neighborhood restaurants. We often walked up this street in the past but never walked far enough to pass this bistro. My husband had gazpacho and the moules et frites, and I had... More

The service was excellent and the food even better. From the appetizer to the sandwiches we were very impressed. I wish it was dinner and I didn't still need to run because the beer list is immense and very impressive. Beers from all over the world on tap and in bottles. If we lived here we would be regulars at... More

GREAT selection of beer, had goo service. Tried a cheese sample platter and smoked salmon blt, very tastee. Busy place so anticipate a wait on busy nights. Relaxing but did find the interior design to be very noisy and was difficult to have a conversation.

Thank MIFire
