I went with a group of people. We shared 7 different plates of tapas. All were delicious. Atmosphere is great for groups and couples. We ended up staying later than business hours and the staff was kind to allow us to finish our celebration. It has a cozy atmosphere yet provides a very different experience than one would get at...

Their menu changes, and their food is always great, fresh, homemade, even gluten free selections. We recommend this place all the time.

Besides their fantastic Bloody Marys, their brunch menu is irresistible. Brunch is a smart addition to Gen 5's repertoire. It is well worth checking out. High recommend.

While enjoying Waukesha's Friday Night Live, we found ourselves looking for a restaurant for supper. A friend recommended Generations and we were not disappointed. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming and the server took her time explaining the menu. We chose three items to share and left satisfied by the abundance of each serving yet wanting more because of... More

After putting in a long day I decided to take a stroll downtown Waukesha and ended up at Gen5. I took at seat at the glamorous and was promptly greeting by the bartender. I took a peek at the very nice wine list and settles on a glass of Malbec. After catching up on the local happening I decided to... More

This is my daughters first choice when she is in town. We have stopped a number of times over the past few years, and we are never disappointed in the service or the food items we order.

A lovely intimate setting that is perfect for couples, girlfriends, or just a twosome. From appetizers to salads to protein dishes there is something for everyone. They have several gluten free as well as vegetarian... More

This is a small Martini Bar/restaurant on Main Street in Downtown Waukesha. The decor is contemporary and intimate with comfortable seating areas, small tables and very pleasant lighting. The menu has a wonderful selection of unique and very tasty hors'd ouerves and meals. I have never had a bad meal, drink or service there. In summer you can enjoy outdoor... More

Wow!! The ever changing Tapas menu was great. Fresh baked bread with Bacon and Scallion butter was a great way to start. The Cranberry Cream Cheese crusted pork tenderloin was so tender you almost didn't need a knife. Spiced Scallops were perfect. So many times you go to a place and the waiter/waitress seems less than enthusiastic, but Allie our... More
