Visited weekday for lunch with guest, dining room mostly empty. Service just ok, food disappointing, Lake Michigan beautiful as always. Chose not to complain at time as was business luncheon. My veal "scallop" was like hockey puck and tasted precooked; guest later admitted chicken "special" was dry and overcooked. Plating was sloppy and unattractive. Did not appear that food was... More

Not a fan of the all you can eat brunches - eat way too much and by the time you are seated the food is cold. This is a very relaxing, truly wonderful way to brunch!!! Mimosa or champagne to start and then choose from the great starters, entree's and then to top it off dessert. Took granddaughter and fiancé... More

Wonderful lake view, great & attentive service and terrific food made for a memorable Sunday! Select champagne or mimosa, then starter & entree and finished with a heavenly dessert. We each chose something different and shared tastes - nothing we were not delighted to try! Leisurely meal with best staff - recommendations and samples if we hesitated on a decision.... More

We love to drive up from Chicago to enjoy their French cuisine. The staff is always friendly and chef never dissapoint us. The historic preservation of the new restaurant is amazing

Visited for New Year's dinner with another couple. The service was a bit slow. The food was very good! The set menu allowed options I had not tried before and I liked them all. The atmosphere was nice. I recommend getting a reservation or arriving early enough to sit in the room next to the windows with a lake view.... More

Lake Park Bistro is one of those restaurants that is like no other restaurant in town. Sure, there are other restaurants that have charm, excellent food and great service but what sets Lake Park Bistro apart is it's setting. Upon approaching Lake Park itself you get a sense of the quaintness of the restaurants setting. It's a charming drive from... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday by dining here. I had a reservation for 9 people, the table was ready when everyone in the party arrived and we were promptly greeted and served by a team of waitstaff. The food was very good, up to par with other French steakhouse restaurants I've been to. The atmosphere was super. A laid back... More

This is our go to place for special occasions. The food is so good! The atmosphere is nice. I recommend getting a reservation or arriving early enough to sit in the room next to the windows with a lake view. Otherwise, it is a crowded dining room with the long bench where the people next to you are inches away.... More

My wife and I generally wait for this as a gift. We generally have a seven course meal. The food is all very top rated. If you give a restaurant a ten on a ten scale this is eleven for both food and service. Ask to reserve a window seat. Overlooks lake Michigan in one of Milwaukee's most beautiful park... More

Great French restaurant by any standard and best restaurant we have been to in Milwaukee of any kind. Seems to have a great atmosphere always whether you eat at the bar or at a table overlooking the lake. The house wines are reasonable and great. The mussels, steak frites and duck are all great. Deserts are awesome.
