    The reason for the two 4 star ratings........the service was very good and quite attentive but we did wait longer than necessary between courses. The noise level was very high, conversation was difficult.

    Great food. Long lags in service. For example, after receiving the check, it was at least 15 minutes before the staff came to get our cards etc. They were quite busy. Difficult to converse as every table was full and noise level was high. The food was superb, as always, so these minor inconveniences pale in comparison.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Lake Part Bistro and they were nice to recognize that and help us celebrate by little touches like a card. We ordered a bottle of wine, although a cheaper one and we made it clear we werent looking to spend 3 figures for a bottle. The order was pretty clear for all and a joke was even made about the cheapest bottle on the page. We were presented the wine bottle but did not pay attention to the details of the name. When we got the bill it was apparent we were served a more expensive wine. The staff reviewed and concluded that yes, we were given a more expensive wine than we had ordered. The mistake was the restaurants and we understood we could have caught it had we remembered the name enough to check but who is really doing that when they are going to a place like this? In the end they concluded that we drank the expensive stuff and there was nothing left to say. The food was good. The service was good. Was it $300 good? Did the restaurant do their best to right their wrong? Nah. They got their money but we cannot recommend. And we almost always go to a Bartolotta's on our anniversary or other special occasion.

    Always a great location. Service was good but we were forgotten about a few times. I am mostly disappointed they went to only multi-course option. It turns the evening into a long event. Good value and excellent food though.

    We came back to Lake Park Bistro to celebrate a birthday, along with our 3 1/2 year old daughter. The entire night was flawless, the four course menu was superb and delighted our palates. The servers were attentive and creative, checking in on us and bringing special surprises to our little one (maraschino cherries on a skewer? ice cream sundae at dessert? amazing!) They had reached their typical Bartolotta standards and went above and beyond that. No doubt we'll be back, the question is just how soon!

    My wife Julie and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary at our favorite place! And as usual we were not disappointed and had a lovely time. Everything from the hostess greeting to our seating and service, drinks to start, 4 course dinner and the overall service was exceptional. For us it is a friendly family vibe. Even tables around us interact with simple greeting, smiles and small talk. So everyone there is happy and satisfied! The new format of 4 course had many delicious options. The carrot purée soup of the day was just fantastic. We had our favorite French chenin blanc to just make the experience complete. Thank you to everyone and bravo to the Chefs and kitchen staff.

    The location is great, the menu choices were varied and seemed perfect for a nice French dinner but the food was terrible. Everything - foie gras, fish, steak, duck arrived cold and in some cases with a film over the food that tells you it was cooked in the afternoon and had been seating for hours. Not once did you hear a server say "caution hot plate" - for our table or any other. First time here and maybe something was off, really off but this was just 'fancy' cold, rubber banquet food. Horrible.

    LPB has been our go-to restaurant for special occasions since 1998. The place never lets us down. Yes, it’s a bit pricy, but when you want that special memory of great food and service in a perfect location with great views, nothing compares in the Milwaukee area. The four course Haute Cuisine dinner last night was well worth the 90 minute drive down from Two Rivers!
