Description: Serving authentic, rustic French cuisine in a bustling bistro setting, the restaurant features a menu that ranges from traditional to more modern and a chef's menu that changes with the seasons. The view of Lake Michigan from the two lake rooms in the Bistro is unrivaled by any other restaurant in the city. Plenty of free parking and a gorgeous park setting make Lake Park Bistro an appealing choice for any dining occasion. Lunch is served Monday through Friday, with guests able to choose from an a la carte menu or from the Menu d'Affaire, which offers a 2-course lunch for $19 and a 3-course lunch for $22. Sunday brunch is among the best in the Midwest, featuring three courses with champagne or a mimosa. Dinner is served nightly, and special events like wine dinners and the annual Black Truffle Dinner are highlights for guests and staff alike.

All of the Bartilotta restaurants in the Milwaukee area are top notch, but the Lake Park Bistro is my favorite restaurant in Wisconsin. The menu is interesting and varied; the food is delectable; service is always impeccable; and the views of the lake can't be beat. If I had to choose one place to eat in this area, it would be The Lake Park Bistro! (The Sunday Brunch is terrific too!)

Lake Park Bistro is a Milwaukee standard for special occasions and upscale brunches. I end up there a handful of times throughout the year, but visited most recently on a Monday night in April for a family member's birthday dinner of 10 adults. The staff was very helpful, patient, accommodating and informative. The setting continues to be beautiful, with wonderful views of Lake Michigan and the parkway. The interior is tastefully decorated and elegant, although the acoustics can be on the loud side. If you go, request a table in the front room, overlooking the lake. Their Sunday brunch is my favorite in the city as it is a three-course menu in lieu of a giant buffet. You choose an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert, as well as a beverage, and the pricing is based on your entree choice. Plus, since it is during the day, you can enjoy the views the entire time. This past visit, we had dinner and everyone's food was fabulous, although the sole was a standout favorite. Overall, I would definitely recommend Lake Park Bistro for entertaining guests from out of town, special occasions, and/or a nice day/night out!

I've been there every time I've been to Milwaukee and it's always perfect. Fish, wine, dessert, everything is good. They've won the James Beard award at least once and they deserve it. Great view, atmosphere and service as well. You must eat there is you are in Milwaukee.

Food, ambience, staff, decor and sorroundings were pleasant.
We had brunch after my recent retirement and the celebration was perfect.
