I took my boyfriend here to celebrate a promotion and had just the most delightful meal. We are big calamari fans so we order it often. I have to say I haven't had better calamari anywhere. Both of our meals were excellent and the service was impeccable. It's a little on the pricier end, but well worth the money for a celebratory meal.

This place is really cool looking. Old building but newly finished lobby and restaurant. GrreT service from everyone. New menu so the waiter hadn't tried everything yet and wasn't that helpful when I couldn't decide what to get for dinner. We started with the meat plate appetizer. They bring bread and butter to the table; the bread was good and the butter was soft and sweet. I had the pork chop and my wife had the lamb. The pork chop was great. Huge and served with chunks off wonderful bacon and some good greens that could have used some tang. The lamb was super flavorful. The server warned that it was a fatty piece of meat and it was but once you cut through the huge wads of fat the lamb inside was perfect. We got the chocolate pudding with cherries and almonds for dessert. It was awesome

I would come back here again and again

Four of us ate lunch there yesterday- the cost was a little over $100.00 for 4 sandwiches, 1 appetizer, 3 waters and 1 cup of tea. The food was just ok, mediocre in every way except the appetizer plate of vegies & cottage cheese, which was good in taste and presentation. We all agreed we wouldn't eat there again, even if the food were half the price. Ambience was nice.

My husband and I had brunch here while staying at the hotel. It was excellent! You probably won't find better food in all of Milwaukee. I wish I could tell you what we ate, but I can tell you that it's a great place to go and not at all what you would expect in this town. The Iron Hotel and Smyth would fit in just as well in Los Angeles or in New York, only they would be 3X the price. This restaurant is a real gem. Definitely go there.
