It's been a couple years since we've been here and I only remembered the porch as being special. We asked to be seated there but at night no view of the lake and it was very loud due to parties enjoying themselves. So we asked...More

Let's face it, folks, the Milwaukee area is full of corporate chain restaurants, especially outside of downtown, and it's hard for an infrequent traveler to find local cooking worth writing home about. The restaurants owned by the Bartolotta family are the exceptions in an otherwise...More

Friday night trout and mushroom salad were excellent. The atmosphere is very appealing allowing for easy conversation. Many places are far too noisy to enjoy both food and company. This place has an excellent balance.

Get a table at the window-view was great and made it feel more romantic. Service was great, food was excellent. Still craving the meal! They treated us to a glass of champagne due to our anniversary. Would come back here every time we visit Milwaukee.

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.
