The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our celebration. They were very accomodating in regard to changing our table. As one gets older hearing can be a problem when the accoustics are historically ? dated. Food was above excellent, our waitress a gem.
We'll be back if all goes well. Cheers!!!

Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro has a beautiful location. The service was excellent. We went there to celebrate grandma's birthday and the staff was very attentive to her. The food was very good, however the noise is the dining area was very loud. But despite the noise, we would definitely come back for another special occasion.

We made a reservation for our daughter's 20th birthday. I called ahead to request a table by the windows overlooking the lake only to be told that "everyone wants those seats" and that I would have to "take what I got". We were seated by the bathrooms. Service was terrible, waited 30 to 40 minutes to be waited on then another 30 to 40 minutes for each course. Appetizers were cold. Entrees were overcooked. We had to wait another 30 minutes to get our check at the end of the meal. This had always been a special place for us but, honestly, we will never go back.

Our server didn't take our order until 40 minutes had elapsed, after our sitting! She was unfamiliar with the wine carte. She didn't offer refills of bread until we had asked for some from another server! Fortunately she had no control over the food, which was fantastic.

Great food, wished the onion soup had more soup, service was fantastic, our water glasses were ahead full, the servers were attentive but not overly so, great seat overlooking the lake, bar looked welcoming even though we didn't sit there, ambience is happy and lively.

Went here for a birthday celebration. They had just what we wanted: perfectly prepared fish dishes and an excellent wine. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Course timing was excellent. Felt welcomed and appreciated. Very nice venue, located in re-purposed park pavilion. Will definitely go back for the next occasion.

Mariana,our waitress ,was an A plus, plus.
My wife and I were thoroughly taken with her genuine friendliness and sense of hospitality.
We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and she made that celebration memorable along with the ambiance and great meal , drinks and dessert.

My husband and I have been coming to Lake Park Bistro for many years. In our opinion, the food is the best in the city and the service is usually fantastic. On this occasion, however, one of our servers was outstanding and the other one was not good. His demeanor and service fell short of the great service we're used to at this, our favorite Milwaukee restaurant. For example, he did not bring the aioli or ketchup we requested until our pommes frittes were cold, and he just generally was not very friendly. His partner was quite nice, helpful, and attentive. My daughter's boyfriend, who has lived in France and currently lives in California, was with us and was very impressed with Lake Park Bistro.

We always have a good experience at this restaurant with consistent good food starting with the bread and down to the desert with predictably good service. This is our favorite Bartolatta restaurant and although we eat here on a regular basis its location makes it very popular for special occasions.

The restaurant has a great location with a view over Lake Michigan. The food is French in style and of outstanding quality and creativity. The wine list only covers French wine, but that is not a problem as the French do make excellent wine. I would like to have seen a few more from Alsace, as it is a favorite area of ours. We had a bottle of Rolly Gassman wine, a winery where we have had a tasting - 43 wines starting at 10 am! That is our all time record for the most wines tasted - and before lunch! The service is also impeccable. It is a great place for celebrating a special occasion, or just to have an outstanding meal!

A French restaurant with great views of Lake Michigan. This is one of my Milwaukee favorites as it combines great food (onion soup gratne, escargot, and veal dishes to name a few) with impeccable service. It is a Bartolata restaurant therefore you can count on quality and value. If in Milwaukee it is a must go.

Great food as always, however the service was incredibly lacking. We started at 630PM and with all the incredible gaps between our soup and our main course (that's all we ordered) we didn't get out of there until after 9 pm. We ordered a bottle of wine (despite the waitress not being knowledgable of the wine list or the menu) and she brought the bottle, opened it at the table, and then left...no taste pour, no wine glasses...no service. I had wanted this to be a special occasion, instead it was an incredible disappointment.

The Bistro is a fine dining restaurant with reasonable prices and extraordinary views. It is definitely worth the drive as the quality of the food was exceptional as was the service. It is the perfect place for an enjoyable evening with fine food, excellent wines and service. We were pleasantly surprised by how good it was.

The food is always wonderful here, but the service was not up to standard when we visited here for lunch for our anniversary recently. The restaurant recognized the occasion by putting a card on our reserved table, presumably to tip the server off to treat us well. We did receive a complementary dessert from the restaurant, but never any acknowledgment from our server about our occasion. Two neighboring tables were there for birthday celebrations and the server audibly congratulated them. At our table, not only, did our server not mention our celebration, but we were also rushed out the door, not being given the option to order coffee which we had been looking forward to having after dessert. Instead, we went down the bluff to have coffee elsewhere. Again, the food was fantastic and we'll be back, but the servers should treat all customers respectfully. We don't feel that we did anything toward the server that would warrant our being ignored.
