Beautiful location to have dinner and/or drinks by the lake on a summer evening! Seemed loud and pricey for dinner inside at the restaurant - setting really not that formal.

I hadn't been to Lake Park Bistro for a while, took an out of town friend to lunch. Convienent location, quiet, pretty setting and a surprisingly good lunch menu (2 courses for $20 or 3 courses for $25). We had salads, the roasted beet and the goat cheese, both fresh, delicious and perfect on a sunny summer day. We also... More

Almost always have been pleased with the food. The bread-always great, and I love good french bread. The service is a mite stuffy sometimes, but usually attentive. Pricey, but worth it 90% of the time.

The food is generally good. I had the apple fennel soup last night and it was really good. It was creamy, hot and had just enough fennel flavor to enhance the apple with out over powering it. The cheese plate was nice, but I wish there has been a little more of each selection. But the best item of the... More

My husband and I arrived for dinner around 8PM and were promptly seated at a table so tight I could reach over and pick off of the gentleman's plate, seated next to me. After waiting about 10 minutes, a waiter, Christopher finally came over, introduced himself and started the ordering process. Once our entrees arrived, my husband cut into his... More

Beautiful lake views await you at this restaurant. The French Onion soup is excellent. Salads and entrees are always wonderful. Desserts are a special treat. A must stop when visiting Milwaukee.

Great place for gracious service and good food. I especially enjoyed their potato/leek soup and their excellent crusty french bread. Stay awhile and enjoy the food, atmosphere and service.

My husband and I visited Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro over the 4th of July weekend. The reservation process was simple, we were seated right away and had a very knowledgeable and friendly server.
