This upscale restaurant continues to impress. It has been around for some time and is in the lobby of a condo building near the lake. Some dishes have been altered over the years but all remain excellent as do the ingredients. Service is friendly and impeccable. The wine list is very broad and upscale. Truly a first rate experience, that... More

The dining room is beautiful but really does not take advantage of the lake front location. The food is delicious but not really memorable. The 6 course tasting menu is very affordable at $75 but is not particularly creative. An enjoyable meal but it could have been so much more.

I went there with a group of girlfriends for dinner and their wine list is wonderful! Lots of selections to choose from. Wait staff is very knowledgable. The food is spectacular as well as the wait staff. Great ambience!

They will take requests....they obviously take notes on returning customers because they knew the wine we had ordered on our previous visit....which was over 6 months prior! Outstanding dining experience.

We attended for a graduation dinner. The service was impeccable, decor was elegant, food was great, and the wine list was extensive. Can't say enough about what a fine experience we had.

My wife and I had a wonderful Anniversary dinner, from start to finish. Bacchus is classy and tasty. The wait staff is well trained, however they tend to hover. Two waiters per table is somewhat bothersome. Dessert was out of this world. Lava cake!! I would go back for more. Great risotto balls. Terrific halibut. Things I don't like, besides... More

This is an expensive fine dining restaurant in a nice waterfront location. However only the conservatory part has a lake view. Service was outstanding, food was good. Meat at medium both my husbands steak and my lamb was more like medium rare to rare. Portions are on the small side which we like but probably lacking for heartier appetites. Would... More

Our son and his fiance' are getting married in August and they have booked the entire restaurant for their wedding. We had the opportunity to visit Milwaukee with the kids and enjoy an incredible dinner (I had the tuna which was prepared perfectly). The food & service were fantastic. We were able to tour the complete facility, which included outdoor... More

On a recent trip to Milwaukee we had dinner at this upscale, fine dining establishment run by the Bartolotta group. The ambience is modern but welcoming and warm. The service is professional and friendly. The food is what makes this place a hit. Everything we had was delicious. I don't believe there is something for everyone on the menu. The... More

Everything served was of high quality. As starters we had Tagliatelle prepared with pork ragout, ricotta salata, spiced pepitas ($12) and Crispy Shrimp – sautéed Napa cabbage with Italian sweet and sour sauce ($11). Tagliatelle was very good, but Crispy Shrimps were even better. As an entrée I had Loup de Mer – sea bass with baby artichokes, marbled potatoes,... More
