A word from Mr. B's - A Bartolotta Steakhouse
Mr. B's is a classic Italian steakhouse featuring an array of prime cuts that are cooked to perfection in a custom 1100-degree wood-burning oven. The preparation gives the steaks a caramelized, buttery crust, creating a flavor and texture that makes for one of the best steaks you've ever had.

The restaurant boasts a spacious, handsome dining room, a sprawling outdoor patio with a large fireplace, and a bar that features a popular weekday happy hour. In addition to steaks, the menu at Mr. B's offers fresh seafood and a wide variety of entrees, appetizers and desserts.

Mr. B's is regularly rated one of Milwaukee's top steakhouses and was recently named one of the top 20 steakhouses in America by The Daily Meal.

  • Overcooked Steak times 3
    Todd
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    Ordered steaks medium rare and medium. The medium rare steak was medium to well. Brought overcooked steak to the attention of the server, another steak was brought to the table in less than 2 minutes. The second steak was pretty much the same as the first. Server blamed it on the lighting in the room. The steak requested medium was cooked to medium well. No manager ever came to the table. Final bill was not adjusted nor anything such as drinks or dessert removed from the final bill. Don't mind paying for a good steak but $42 for a steak that is not cooked correctly is ridiculous. The bacon dressing for the spinach salad was cool and when poured from the small pitcher, looked like oatmeal.

    Was my first time visiting Mr. B's and I was not disappointed! Booked the reservation for a Friday night 7pm and was seated at the table immediately upon arrival. There seemed to be a nice bar though in case we needed to wait. Had a lovely table for two (it was date night!) in a semi-enclosed space off the main dining room, overlooking the outdoor seating area. Very nice ambiance; not noisy. We would've requested to sit outdoors but it was just a bit cold that night. The wait staff was professional, polite, very attentive but not pushy! The food was phenomenal. I had a petite filet, baked potato and peppercorn sauce. My date had the red wine sauce and it was a bit bland but mine was fantastic. Will definitely return!

    Our first trip to the "new" Mr. B's was disappointing but after hearing from friends that it was a great place to eat we decided to try it again. Again, we were disappointed. First thing: the floor is so slippery 2 of our guests nearly fell. It took nearly 15 minutes for anyone to come to our table with water and 25 minutes before we were able to order wine. We all had steak. Two were cooked to order while the other two were well over cooked. Two opted for special topping (crab) and it was disappointing. It was more like crab soup. No texture or flavor but shell remnants really detracted from the meal. Took. 15 minutes to. "find" our server to get our check. We love Lake Park Bistro but will avoid the other Bartolatta restaurants.

    They do need to enforce their dress code more closer. There web site say's casual elegant. Well one couple sitting two tables away came in wearing flip flops and shorts !!! This was on a Sat. night. And alot of sloppy jeans and shirt tails hangiing out. Not the type of dress for a Sat night at a upscale steak house. Others were dressed shirt tie, sport shirt dress slacks etc. Kinda made me think why are we following the code and others get in wearing beach flip flops and shorts ????

    Sarah, our waitress, was very helpful and knowledgeable. She helped me choose lamb chops - they were wonderful. Afterwards, I mentioned I can never bake lamb like this and gave up long ago. Sarah said it is because their ovens are so accurate - how nice to make me feel better about my inexperience compared to their chefs. Something tells me even if I had their ovens, I couldn't come close to their fine food. Great food and great time

    Brought the visiting Mother in Law and the two kids over to Mr. B's for dinner. The kids are Mr. B's veterens but first time visit for our out of town guest. Not surprisingly, another stellar display of cuisine, service and ambiance. Our visiting Family member was floored with the experiance and our kids were treated with an ice cream sundae for their maturity and politeness. Needless to say, it's the Gem of the Western suburbs.

    The food was fine and our server was great. Our table was in a corner, which I thought was nice, however the kitchen was on the other side of the wall. It sounded like there was construction occurring on the other side of the wall. That was extremely disappointing. To pay $300 for dinner for 4 people and have difficulty hearing each other is flat our BAD.

They were all neat, clean, and worked as a team on the floor and in the kitchen. Very impressive. You can be especially proud of them, they present a very professional image for your restaurant.

    Dined on 8/13/2014
    Good afternoon, I actually e-mailed B's directly as well, not expecting anything in return, I just wanted to let them know about a bad experience we had at Mr. B's. We took out of town (Tennessee) for dinner, we decided Mr. B's because we had always heard good things and they have such a great presence and reputation. One of our clients ordered a salad and said many times no cheese at all. Salad comes with a ton of cheese. Server takes back salad re-appears after the reminder of the party had all eaten 1/2 of their meals. Tacky in my opinion. The server never asked my husband if he would like another glass of wine (he was the only one drinking...he had to ask her) We didn't expect anything...just very bad experience

    My wife and I been to Mr. B's three or four times before hand and had great service and food. This time not so much. The waitress only stopped by maybe four or five times the whole night. The waitress took almost 40 minutes to take our order. She let her helper do most of the work at our table. My steak came almost well, not medium rare like I ordered. They did prepare another steak for me, but nothing came off the bill at all. By the time I got my new steak my wife was done eating. She had to seat and watch me eat as I did for her. Love the place but not sure if I will go back. That experience left bad taste in my mouth.

    The petite filet I ordered had an inch of fat around it. Not quite sure why they butterflied it when it's a petite. Also, my fiancé had the bone in filet which is supposed to be lean, also had a lot of fat on it. I've never been served a filet that fatty before. The server acted like it was normal. Everyone at the table agreed with me. Would not be my first, second or third choice for a nice filet.

    We have dined at Mr. B's on numerous occasions and enjoy the food and wine list. The seating selection is always a challenge due to the high noise level in the main dining room and high traffic on the quiet alleyway. When we do not have guests we will go back to the high tops in the bar. The service is always better on busy nights in the dining room.

    My wife and I went to Mr. B's for an anniversary dinner and couldn't find anything to fault with the meal or the service. The steaks were fabulous and my crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had. The stack of onion rings and the salads were great and even the grilled Brussels sprouts that my wife decided to try had a nice grilled flavor with the oil taking some of the cabbage-like taste away. Did some broccoli at home the next night on the grill and it was also delicious; so I learned something. Prices were appropriate for the quality and actually a bargain compared to the highly advertised steak house chains that I've been to around the country.

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    It was nice, but weird, at the same time to have a "team" of waiters---it seemed the 1st one (lady) was only there to explain the menu, answer questions, and take the order, then she never stopped by/barely said Hi the rest of night as she passed by. Then it was obvious the 2nd waiter (guy) was there to service, clean up, and collect payment. We wonder why we weren't offered the conversation about the rewards program by the wait staff. But it was a very nice touch to bring out champagne/dessert since you knew it was our Anniversary. That was unexpected surprise. With the amount of money spent on food/drinks--I would have thought facilities (like bathroom paint on door and automatic paper towel machine) would have been a bit nicer.
