We were captivated by the beautiful presentation and variety of desserts in the bakery case. Although we came for dessert and coffee, we decided to try one of the many interesting entrees described on the menu. Our dinner was so good and so filling that we took our dessert home to eat. Our waiter was attentive and helpful in explaining... More

This is my favorite burger. Locally raised beef, fried onions and gruyere cheese. And their always excellent frites. Even though it's a burger and fries - it's not any old burger and fries. Trust me.

Le Reve has been one of my favorite places to eat, and in the past, their food had been consistently superb. But recently I returned to Le Reve and ordered one of my usuals - the Moules et Frites - mussels steamed with Pernod and fries. The mussels were so puny - hardly any meat at all. These were not...

Le Reve is a real gem in the Milwaukee restaurant scene. We have been frequenting the restaurant for several years. On the most recent occasion, it was a complimentary dinner for a lost Valentine's Day reservation. The staff could not have been nicer and the food was superb. The portions are filling. The restaurant boasts several wine specials, but the... More

My old gal pal and I met up for a lunch on Friday at 11:30. We've been meaning to get together and since we both live in Tosa, thought we'd try Le Reve. No problem getting a table as we beat the lunch crowd. By noon, the place was packed. We were both impressed with the restaurant's atmosphere, service and... More

I have eaten here several times, and am not sure how I want to rate it. We arrived at 4:30, too early for the dinner menu, so picked from the small plate menu. My review is mostly driven by the service. We were given the option to sit anywhere we wanted, as only 2 other tables were filled. My colleague... More

Good food, great wine list. Remodel of second floor makes upstairs so much nicer for dining. Good service. Bartenders are very knowledgeable. If the pheasant is on the menu, order it. The desserts are always excellent.

My wife, daughter and I went to Le Reve for dinner tonight for the first time and it is very safe to say that we will be going back. The entire dining experience was outstanding and our server was great. We had appetizers (crab beignets, stuffed squash blossoms, brie and honey croutons) salads and pomme frites as our meal. Each...

Came here with a friend for lunch. If the weather is nice, you can sit outside and enjoy the food and the weather. The food is great, I highly recommend trying any specials they have for the day! Our service was fabulous as well, the server was helpful in explaining what was in each dish and what his favorites were!
