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.

    Our server seemed to be rushed, it did not create a relax, welcoming environment. We asked for cocktails and she took the wine list away from us. I have to asked to bring the wine list back. I felt I was in Olive Garden type of restaurant. In the end another waiter came and gave us a better service, much more friendly

    Our servers were Jeff and Arnold and they were top notch!! Always there when needed without being pushy, like some other places, but not so far away that you were looking to try and find then. The food was incredible, absolutely no complaints there! They also surprised us with a dessert at no charge because it was our anniversary. It was delicious! Thanks for an all around perfect evening

    Dined on 10/6/2014
    The restaurant is a great place and I'm sure the other steaks are great, but I tried a rib-eye for the first time and was not impressed. I normally have a NY strip, however the description of the rib-eye having more flavor was very inviting. The selection of steak had too much marbling (fat) for my liking. Each bite was filled with fat, which pretty much ruined my dinner. I will visit the restaurant in the future in hopes of having a delicious NY Strip.

    Our servers were great. All though the acoustics could be better, hard to hear at normal levels of speech. More of a social feel than romantic. The food and drinks could not have been better. This was our second time there. The first was a few years back, maybe more, right after they opened, not the best. This time was much better. We will be going back more now though. B's is a wonderful place for a steak and drinks. Will have to try the out door area. Do recommend going.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    Family of four celebrating special birthday, anticipated prime food & dining experience. Two ordered steaks, two burgers. Steak had little flavor with no seasoning. Steak sauce is available, a good steak should not need sauce. Dinners do not include salad, disappointed. Server was adequate, "assistant server" deserved majority of tip, more cordial/friendly. Not sure why the hype on this restaurant, since our visit we have heard several negative comments. Some good things? Bread & roll is awesome, burgers above average, used a decent gift card for an overpriced dinner and after leaving, celebrated a great birthday!

    My wife and I ate at Mr. B's for our 5th wedding anniversary. My wife has both a dairy and soy allergy. I used OpenTable to reserve my spot at Mr. B's. I left a note, on my OpenTable res, and I called ahead to make sure that their staff was aware of my wife's needs. Their staff went above and beyond! I could not believe how sensitive they were of the allergies. They altered menu items and answered all the questions we had. They (Server:Jeff/Buss:John) were very knowledgeable regarding the menu. The food was spectacular. Yes... $$$. But I would spend it again. Incredible experience. Great dining. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to have a great night.

    This was a most enjoyable dinner that I shared with a good friend. The service was awesome and the food divine. Delicious bread before hand. Would have tried an appetizer but the dinner menu was much to intriguing to wait with an appetizer. I would recommend this to anyone and this is a wonderful place for that 'special' dinner.

    Only 750 characters for a review? I guess I'll use bullet points: - Great dirty martini -- probably the most perfect I've ever tasted. - Amazing sear on my $70 Wagyu tomahawk cut rib-eye -- just magnificent. Unfortunately, it also had a few very fatty bites (not marbling), a thick ribbon of silverskin or gristle that ran through the steak, and was otherwise pretty unremarkable for the most expensive cut on the menu. I ordered it without any topping or sauce so that I could truly taste the meat. - Average appetizers (about what I'd expect at Cooper's Hawk) - Worst steak knives I've ever used. EVER. For a $200 dinner for two, I expect to say "wow" a few times during my meal. Mostly, I just said "meh".

  • 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 ????
