By far one of the best dining experience we have had in a long time. Food was stupendous and wait staff superb. Spouse had the tasting menu that was outstanding along with the wine pairing. Steak was great. Only complaint was the steak knife was so dull a butter knife might have worked better. Total meal experience was the best.... More

Situated on the Bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, this is a setting that is hard to beat. The food is very good as well. I had the excellent large portion of trout and my husband enjoyed the pork. The chocolate dessert was delicious and a little different with cherry and pistachio sauce.

This is my favorite restaurant in Milwaukee. Great service, great view's, great food. I do suggest if you are dining there that you sit at the windows to get a great view of the lake.

The food is incredible, the service is great, and as long as you have room on your credit card, you will love the experience! If OpenTable says they are full, be sure to call them - they sometimes have more availability than what shows online.

Lake Park Bistro is a very special special-event destination. We are huge fans of one special waiter who shall remain nameless or we'll not be able to have him serve us. Meanwhile, we're not as enchanted by the new lunch menu so a quick change would be both noticed and appreciated.

I remember when food service at Lake Park was pretty terrible. The Bartolotta group has made the restaurant into an outstanding place to dine for a quick meal at the wonderful copper bar or a leisurely meal looking out onto Lake Michigan.

We've been there many times, for all sorts of occasions, lunch, brunch and dinner (most recently for an anniversary dinner in January), and while there are local restaurants with more daring menus, there is none that more consistently combines atmosphere, excellent food, and wonderful service for a great dining experience.

Whenever we have out of town visitors, Lake Park Bistro is a must. You can't beat the food, the wine, the ambiance, the view. And even when we don't have OofT visitors, we love to dine there. It's always our first choice for that special meal!

Delicious food, well prepared and artfully served, in a romantic environment. Oh, and they make a fabulous martini. It doesn't get any better than this...
