Have been dining at LPB for many years now and it continues to be consistently good; whether seated in the dining room (with a beautiful view of the lake from the back room - especially in summer), or at the bar, great french bistro-style food, good wine list. Ambiance good though a bit noisy, service is always very good-excellent.

Here's the deal....a bit pricey....if you go for the view....go during the day. Food hardly memorable. There a better choices among the Bartollotta restaurants for atmosphere and frankly, the food is better at Harbor House or Bartolotta in tosa.

I have dined here multiple times over the past several years, for both dinner and Sunday brunch. Food and service are consistently wonderful. Tends to get rather noisy when a lot of people are dining, and probably not the best place for those with a tendency towards hard of hearing. Get a reservation near the windows for early dinner, while... More

Lake Park Bistro is an old stand-by that never fails to please. The food is divine, the service is of the highest caliber and the atmosphere near fails to impress. The Bartolotta group of restaurants are in a class by themselves. Try them all.

My wife and I have traveled in France every year since 1973. We live in the Milwaukee area and always love dining at the Lake Park Bistro. The food and service are the best and we always feel like we are in France when we are at the restaurant. Our last visit was on February 28th with friends who have... More

This place is quite expensive but it is well worth it. Service is great food is just plain fantastic. Part of the Bartolotta Group this is one of their highend restaurants. Well worth the price and plus a nice view of Lake Michigan.

Everyone, who was anyone raved about this place, so I made reservations for the Mother's Day Brunch. OMG! This was probably one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. My mother and I just stared at our plates trying to take it all in. (This was before Instagramming your phone was a thing) I wish I... More

We decided to have lunch so we could enjoy the view of the lake; Stunning! It was a bitter day outside but the sun was shinning which gave the dinning room a lovely rosy glow. Oh and the food was wonderful. Fresh with a French twist. Every course was tasty and not too big. We hope to enjoy this restaurant... More
