“Very pleasant atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Marriott Company did a wonderful service for downtown Milwaukee. It saved several historic buildings by wrapping its new hotel around them, and then re-purposed the old buildings for hotel activities. The result is a spanking new hotel restaurant, Millioke, with a refreshing décor.

Service was friendly and helpful, but maybe a little too exuberant. The Caesar salad properly arrived with anchovies and nice fresh, crunchy lettuce, but the croutons were really strange. They were chewy to the point of taking a lot of work to reduce them to a size that could be swallowed. The margherita flatbread was a proper balance of cheese, basil, and tomatoes.

Entrance to the restaurant is through the hotel. Huge picture windows make it seem like you are sitting at a sidewalk café. They saved a section of a yellow brick wall as part of the décor, yellow brick being a feature of old Milwaukee buildings due to the chemical composition of the local clay.

For the curious, Millioke is an early spelling of Milwaukee. If you say the "io" as a "wa" sound, it is obvious.

“Hip, but warm and inviting”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Loved everything about this restaurant! The decor is outstanding. The service was excellent. The food all comes from a 250 mile radius or a large portion of it and it really does make a difference!
Best burger I have ever eaten, and we travel extensively! Mashed potatoes were a religious experience and i am still craving the bread and butter pickles! The cheese fondue with pretzel bread was good too. Too stuffed to try dessert but love how they offer "small bites". Pricing was reasonable for the quality and certainly a nice surprise in a hotel restaurant!

Breakfast was exceptional here--Blueberry Pancakes with greek yogurt, carmelized pear and apples and local maple syrup are good enough to travel 1,000 miles back for!

“Excellent cheese. Great local beer selection.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The cheese is great, the beer selection is awesome. Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu although they've only been open a couple weeks. The atmosphere is great too. A must try!

“Great atmosphere with food to match!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Myself and two business partners had lunch at the brand new Millioke restaurant at the new Marriott downtown. The hotel did a great job with this restaurant. There are a number of unique choices and at reasonable prices. I had the Pappardelle with peas and Neuskes bacon and it was awesome!

I will definately be visiting this restaurant again in the near future.
