A favorite Milwaukee restaurant bar where you can be sure to get late night food. I have been frequenting this place since I was 18 years old, so 22 years and even when I moved away it was on my list when I came back to visit. Everything is superb here and you can make it a family occasion, business,... More

Bartenders are the best. Anton and Sweeney can make any cocktail you wish. And even adjust the mixology to your mood. Food is exceptional but not a budget buster. Female patrons are made to feel very comfortable and travelers enjoy the break from the usual hotel bar scene.

Awesome venue with very avant-garde art. The patty melt is delicious and the dirty martini beyond compare. The trip advisor app won't let me edit my review - so I hope this makes sense! Go! Everyone else was super friendly! Maybe our waiter was having an off day 😉compare. compare. Our waiter is standoffish and snotty at best somebody like... More

Given the number of excellent drinks on the menu, there's aspects of this establishment that definitely don't deserve the attribute sober. And yet: it is thanks to the decor's restraint that the colourful and varied menu items come into their own, and that the sophisticated and immersing crowd can develop fully. The place is abuzz come five p.m.and stays like... More

Recently had a business lunch at Elsa's and I have to say that I love this place more and more each time I go back. The food is exquisite and the service is impeccable. Their most recent art work (the eye balls) is a bit disturbing but the food is worth it!

Really wonderful, creative dishes that are moderately priced. A very professional wait staff and bartender. All of the salads are terrific. The decor is outstanding; difficult to describe but not outlandish. The atmosphere and crowd are urban trendy. It's a Milwaukee classic for a reason. Only street parking is available.

I've been coming to Elsa's since the early 80s. So I'm familiar with the history and atmosphere. Our work team brought our manager to Elsa's this past week for her retirement lunch. We were all surprised and disturbed by the moving eyeballs that were added to the decor. We were, unfortunately, seated near the one large eyeball, but the wall... More

Went to celebrate...what a downer....service was poor if you got any at all! Food was so so and a bit pricey! Choose another until management can train staff that customers are more than inconvenient!
