“Very Interesting Lunch”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

After being named one of the top 30 restaurants in Milwaukee, Le Reve doesn't need my good review, but I'm going to give it one anyway. We were seated immediately upstairs and each ordered a glass of wine. There were so many interesting dishes to choose from, but I ended up with the Legume Printaniers Crepe, which had asparagus, mushroom, parmesan cheese and a basted egg. The blend of flavors and textures was just wonderful. My friend had been to Le Reve before and had issues with the onion soup, but agreed that her mussels and beet salad (2 things I would NEVER order) were quite good, except the beets were canned instead of fresh, which you would expect in beet season. We also split a great dessert, a key lime coconut meringue creation that was beautiful and tasty.

“wonderful lunch”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

the food is wonderful,and the portions are not huge.This is not the place to take adolescent boys.
They serve wine and beer,and the menu has a variety of salads,sandwiches and pomme frittes.
We had a good meal,but if you can request the tables on lower level. The tables on the upper level are very small and close together. the noise level is very high,so conversing can be challenging.
Also,if you are on the main level,you can see the desserts..we did not have one,but they look wonderful.
This is a place for a special treat,expensive but always a good meal.

“A lovely place for lunch”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

My mom and I go to Le Reve at least once a year. The salads, sandwiches, pomme frites, and desserts are all delicious. It's always full of people having fun conversations and reminds me a bit of the cafes in France.

“Tiny Cocktails, tiny tables”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

This was our first visit. New york style atmosphere. pack em in with tiny tables Very loud.. Don't order cocktails here. They are VERY small and overpriced. Have wine or beer, even though their wine selection is very small. Menu, too was quite limited. Of our party of four the ladies had range chicken. I had the scallops and my friend had the pork Saturday night special. We all enjoyed the food but portions tend to be on the small side and quite expensive.

“Good Selections and Good Food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a very nice meal at this restaurant in downtown Wauwatosa.A very nice setting both inside and outside. A broad selection of choices (we tend toward vegetarian) - there were three of us and all the entree's were excellent. Particularly liked the beet salad with the starters. We did not have room for dessert, but the pastries looked like works of art.
