My husband and I sat at the Chefs table and started out with the Dilly beans. Very yummy...i guess i would have rather had them just dilled and spicy instead of fried, but they were very good. Loved watching the chefs and the owner/head Chef was fun to watch as well. Next, had the rutabega soup, which was excellent. Great... More

Went for the Pastry class, the moctail and nosh, they served before the class will bring me back. The pastry chef showed a deft hand in the class, and the ability to adjust on the fly, reason enough to try the dessert menu.

At first glance of the menu I didn't think I was going to enjoy my experience. I was sooo wrong!!! We decided not to have an entree and instead ordered several of the small bites. They were all very delicious!! I loved getting to sample many different items. The desserts didn't fail either, we ordered 4 of them to share... More

From the first course to the last we loved every bite. This is not your ordinary restaurant. The staff was very knowledgable with the food and wine. We sat by the kitchen and we enjoyed talking to the staff and seeing how everything is prepared. The food was prepared to perfection with appropriate portions. The aroma and flavor of the... More

We went here before a play at Next Act, relatively nearby. We made a reservation for 5:30, as that was the only reasonable choice, and we were glad we booked this for the earlier time. We were seated promptly and had a drink while we perused the menu. We like the approach that Dave Swanson takes with the food, sourcing... More

late dinner with family- menu is restricted, but rich with flavors. Braise bases that menu on what they can acquire locally, so while the menu is small, it does a great deal with 'what's in season'. nice, relaxed atmosphere… pretty cool in a reviving area of Milwaukee, just north of the AB Clock Tower. larger tables are 'almost' family style-...

Chose this restaurant from the reviews while visiting the city. Service, booze and food was fabulous. The flavors in the food exploded in your mouth! Highly recommend it. Thanks for the wine and sourgham popcorn anniversary party!

Start to finish an amazing local food experience. Like other reviewers have mentioned, I have had better but not often, and the way the whole experience was packaged and delivered certainly pushes it into my top 20-30 dining experiences. There is something special about eating fresh and seasonal that draws us to the experience but few deliver on that promise... More

I really enjoyed the entire experience here. When I broke it down I've had better food and better service even though both were good here, but something about the atmosphere and the food and the service and the company made this a great visit.
