Tempest Oyster Bar

Not your typical Madison lobby decor: a vintage wooden boat with a blue marlin on the wall greet visitors to Tempest Oyster Bar, one of Madison's more overlooked romantic restaurants.

Tempest Oyster Bar, 120 E. Wilson St.: Probably the most overlooked fine dining establishment in Madison. Those put off by the name should know that the restaurant goes far beyond oysters. The bar is a conversation piece, made with wine bottles hand stacked by owner Henry Doane. Don’t miss the amazing sides, particularly the roasted brussels sprouts and the seaweed slaw.
