We enjoyed pitchers of drinks, guacamole, and tasty food. The restaurant has a number of sitting areas so wait was not a problem. The food and staff were fun and quick to help pick a great dinner for the group. We will be back!

I loved La Fuente on Bluemound the first couple years it was open.They had a very pleasant,professonial manager. Now, it appears to be disorganized and short staffed. It was terrible on Mother's Day. We had to wait quite awhile although there were many available tables. The servers and bus boys who are there are very good. Margaritas continue to be... More

Le Fuente has one of my personal favorite outdoor patios in the Milwaukee Area. It's large, festive and has decorative fountains throughout. A perfect place to enjoy a sunny afternoon and a pitcher of frosty cold margs.

My favorite Mexican restaurant in the U.S. Have moved away from Milwaukee, but still visit yearly. One of my first stops when I'm back in town. Also, the outdoor patio is fabulous in the summer.

This is a great authentic Mexican place! And in the summer time the out door dining is fantastic. It's like a little bit of Mexico in downtown Milwaukee. Service is superb every time.

I went here with a group of friends on Saturday at 7pm. We had a group of 12 and our food came out hot and fast. I used to live in Milwaukee and heard since I left that the quality here went south. I felt that the Shrimp Soup was as fantastic as it always was and the service was... More

I am probably spoiled on good Mexican cooking as I make it as well as search out good Mexican food frequently. Salsa was mediocre and one was actually heated?? Enchiladas were just OK. Margaritas were just OK. Fajitas were just OK.

When I moved to Milwaukee 10 years ago this restaurant had a reputation of being "the place" for Mexican food. The last time I visited La Fuente I wasn't impressed but thought it might have been an off night. On this last visit I went to their Wauwatosa location on Bluemound. It was Friday night and my first clue should... More
