Lovely luncheon!

Great view, great service and lovely setting! The lunch menu has a wonderful offering of either a two-course or three-course setting for about $10 a course and portions that are generous for lunch. Our meal started with delicious bread/butter and everything that followed was elegant, rich with... read more

We had brunch for my mom's birthday. Everything went well, and our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and courteous. He made sure to explain details of each dish, and provided an excellent experience for everyone. The view of the lake is so lovely. I had the Paillard de Poulet - Thinly pounded and breaded chicken breast with lemon vinaigrette and Alpine... More

Both brunch and dinner are special at Lake Park Bistro. I love the beef tenderloin. The view of Lake Michigan is gorgeous so ask to sit on the porch. We had our daughter's wedding reception here and they were a wonderful in every way.

My husband and I are working our way down the Trip Advisor Milwaukee restaurants-- Lake Park Bistro was #6--- and we enjoyed our meal for the most part. We decided to go for brunch -on a nice and sunny winter morning so the view was lovely. The warm croissants were a delicious start to the meal-- flaky and melted in... More

This is our go-to special occasion restaurant. The service is impeccable, the surrounding park beautiful, the ambiance cozy, homey, and elegant, and the food delicious. The oeufs moletye a salad is to die for, specials are always elegantly plated and delicious, and the regular menu is delicious. You can't lose.

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
