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.

We have had tapas in many cities and this is one of the best. A great ever changing menu that often features fresh local produce. 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

I have eaten here several times when in Waukesha and I am constantly surprised at the high quality and inventiveness of the food served here. I honestly wish we had a place like this in Los Angeles.

I went into Generations during a friday night festival. It was completely packed, my girlfriend and I were informed it would be about a half hour to 45 minute wait, having spent a lot of time in Chicago over the last few years that did not seem like that bad of a thing. I was amazed at how nice the... More

Having been to Generations frequently over the past few years, we will not return again. Over the past few months, the quality of the service and the food has declined. During our past two visits we have experienced a change in the flavors of the food. What once appeared to be fresh and made in the Resturant has taken on... More

We have been here dozens of times over the years, and have never been disappointed. Their menu staples are well done and always a treat. Then there are the items that rotate through the menu monthly.. those are creative and fun treats that you should get while you can. The small selection of beer taps is well chosen, and their...

Great scallops ,creamy risotto and perfect asparagus. Key lime pie is good as well. Iwas watching the olympics when a local came in and demanded it be changed to the game. Paid my check and rushed back to my hotel so i could see them.
