Last night for dinner we thoroughly enjoyed our two entrees. The first was an Australian lamb chop (Frenched) over roasted fingerling potatoes and grilled asparagus. The chops were a perfect medium rare and absolutely succulent. There were also four of them, which is unusual. The other entree was a very creative salmon preparation. A perfectly grilled salmon rested atop a delicious wild mushroom risotto and wilted spinach. The entire dish was sauced with a cherry tomato/lobster reduction which added a bright acidic quality to the mellow flavors of salmon and risotto. This was truly a beautifully concepted and executed dish.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood and prompt service. Clean.Good and prompt service. Clean. Good food.

The food and service were great, and the complimentary champagne really topped off the brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchI was a bit disappointed that some of the small plates were taken off of the normal Sunday brunch menu (I was SOOOO looking forward to the tenderloin and eggs), but the addition of the buffet was nice. It included a chef carving prime rib and turkey breast, an omelette station, waffles with toppings, fruit, bacon, sausage, potatoes, shrimp, smoked salmon, and LOTS of great desserts! (The turtle bars and carrot cake were the BEST!) The small plates that we DID have, came out fast, and were great-especially the french toast. Barry, our server/bartender was very pleasant! Loved that mimosas were included in the price. The dining room was full, so we were seating in the bar, but this was fine. It wasn't as chaotic as the main room can be.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a nice dinner, butWe had a nice dinner, but started slow and we had a shuttle to an event to catch.

Next time!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday brunch was great--lovedSunday brunch was great--loved being able to try a number of small plates, all fresh and delicious! Sooooo much better than a typical buffet line brunch, with steam table dishes that have been sitting there for hours!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMUnderrated Milwaukee Gem!!Another great meal at Envoy. Such a fantastic place, a Milwaukee hidden-gem, the food, atmosphere and service are outstanding. The food is unique, flavorful, excellent presentation, good portions and very reasonable. The hotel was restored to its 1940's style/class, like stepping back in time. You certainly don't feel like you're in Milwaukee, more like San Fran or Chicago, upscale casual and nice. The service is always very attentive, warm and friendly. Truly an underrated and under-appreciated place.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThge selection at the BrunchThge selection at the Brunch was outstanding and the service that went with it was very attentive.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed my lunch,andI really enjoyed my lunch,and I'll bring more of my friends and family here.This is my place for lunch.
