Diner Reviews
  • "Food simply spoils you from eating anywhere else ever again! Our waiter made the evening, great sense of humor, excellent service and a perfect sense of all around timing."

  • "Lake Park Bistro is a great place to go for a special brunch/lunch/dinner. The food with a French flair is always amazing, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the view of Lake Michigan as you sit above the tree line is breath taking. The service is always friendly and prompt and the food melts in your mouth. Great place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, holiday or just because. It would be a perfect setting for a wedding!"

  • "Loved every bight of my whitefish dinner and salad at the Lake Park Bistro! I also tasted the salad with tuna and chicken. Staff went out of their way to make for the best dining experience! Highly recommended if you care about the quality and presentation of your food."

  • "Go for the beautiful view of Lake Michigan, but stay for the excellent food. We enjoyed a very large fresh trout dinner as well as a pork entree. The chocolate dessert with cherries was a little different presentation that was quite tasty."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner. The food was outstanding; it may have been the best meal we have had at Lake Park Bistro. The lamb shank and and T-bone were excellent. Both the onion soup and mushroom soup were yummy. Often restaurant soups are too salty, these offerings were perfect."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Fabulous food, great service, great ambience! Wonderful experience we will return to."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was good, but they rushed us through our meal. We were with our children who were visiting and we wanted to make our meal into a enjoyable evening. The minute we finished our appetizers the entrees arrived. The timing was too fast. It is an expensive restaurant and the meal should be served in at a relaxing pace. In the future we'll have to take our business elsewhere."

  • "Service was OUTSTANDING! It was our 1st wedding anniversary, and everyone made it special/memorable. We held our wedding ceremony and brunch last year at Lake Park Bistro and now plan to celebrate our annual event every year! Special table with a view (requested), complimentary appetizer/desert, and even a champagne toast. Awesome!!!"

  • "Brought my good friend here on Saturday. Her husband recently passed away, it was her favorite restaurant and the place he proposed. We had a wonderful time. The service, food and ambiance was up to Bartolattas standards. Thank you for making this difficult time a treat and memorable experience for my friend."

  • "We came here for my birthday and we had a great view at the window of the lake , food was outstanding and excellent service. So many choices on the menu but I had the rainbow trout which was outstanding and my husband had a pork shank and he said he would order it again. We will be back"

  • "When my wife and i want to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary we always think of going to Bartolotta's. We especially like Lake Park Bistro because of the view, the food, and the good service."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "This is our favorite restaurant in the area; we have to drive about 1 hour to get there and it is well worth the trip. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and the meal was ideal, as always. The baked onion soup, salade lyonnaise, and two different lamb main dishes were all perfect. Ad crusty baguette slices and a complimentary dessert for my wife and the evening was all we could have wished."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Can't say enough wonderful things about this dining experience. From the attentiveness of staff, to the great food. However, the linens left us covered in white. The maitre d' offered me a lint roller and gave an elaborate explanation of their laundering. Ask for black napkins."

  • "Once again, my family enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Lake Park Bistro. Our waiter was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and our dinner was paced perfectly. The food was out of this world. Once again we had a great dinner that we won't soon forget."

  • "We've never been disappointed at Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro. It's the perfect place for a delicious, if expensive, dinner, with remarkably attentive service that never gets intrusive. And the expansive view of the lake is a wonderful plus, if you're lucky enough to get a window table!"

  • "The Lake Park Bistro provides an outstanding dining experience--warm, friendly atmosphere, fine service, beautiful dining spaces, and well-prepared and presented food, especially for those who like French Cuisine. To my mind, its especially charming, cozy, and comfortable during the winter. The only misstep at our table was an Onion Soup that was too heavy on the cheese, making it difficult to appreciate/savor the broth. The trout was outstanding and nicely presented, as was the loup de mer en papillote. I was celebrating a birthday, and received a nice note from the staff and a sweet."

  • "This fine Milwaukee restaurant with the proven name Bartolotta was wonderful. From the ambience to the view of Lake Michigan with a fortunate full moon over the water as the evening progressed, it was worth the experience. Normally a little expensive for our taste, we had gift certificates and a $25 off wine and the waitress was very accomodating. The food was tasty and plentiful. We would go back for a special occasion. Mary, Rudy and Karl and Carol Ralian"

  • "The Pros: This restaurant is a very good restaurant including excellent food, good service(very well trained waiters), and a great view of the lake. This is a nice place to go on a romantic date but it is also kid friendly. The cons are the price. Dinner for 2 at this restaurant will cost you about $100 and they expect a at least $20 tip. But overall this is a very good restaurant with a great view of the lake"

  • "Our anniversary dinner was awesome! There was a card for us at the table, and excellent service throughout the meal. Enjoyed complimentary champagne with dessert - very nice. Lake Park Bistro continues to be a treat. The food was wonderfully prepared and presented and served."

  • "Authentic French bistro.... everything from the wines offered, ingredients, dishes offered... Will be sure to take my French mother there when she visits Milwaukee."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "This is a great restaurant. The food and atmosphere are excellent. The service is great. This is a beautiful place to visit in summer because of its wooded park and lake Michigan view. My only complaint would be its very expensive so you can not afford to go very often."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Everything was exceptional. It was a little loud for a romantic night out but otherwise couldn't ask for better. The service was outstanding and the food was very good."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Beautiful location. Fantastic building inside and out. Dinner was quite good, although I have had better. The one major downside to our dining experience was the noise level. My wife and I often felt we had to raise our voices just to be heard by the other. It makes conversing quite tiring and detracts from what otherwise was a great dining experience. We dined here on a Friday evening, and I am guessing on a quieter night this place could be quite romantic."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We were at this restaurant for Sunday brunch, I and a French friend. All began especially well when the croissants arrived, which my friend said were among the best he'd ever had, including France. The rest of the meal was equally fine, served by an efficient, friendly and helpful staff. There was a lovely view of Lake Michigan (we were given a table next to the window). It was in all respects a highly enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!"

  • "Slow night and towards closing is what I'm hoping to attribute to the lackluster performance by the serving staff and kitchen staff? Many questions about the wine and food were answered with "hold on and let me ask". The descriptions of the interesting dishes had to pryed from the staff I felt. I've eaten at a few other Bartoltta restaurants and had much too high expectations. The menu is a French foodie dream but the execution was not. I have a feeling that a busy Sat in the spring would yield a different dining experience but ..............."
