If you're missing (or have never experienced) an authentic French bistro, Lake Park Bistro is the remedy! Exquisite!

The ambiance is really nice and it is amazing to sit and overlook the lake while enjoying brunch. I would rate the food so-so. It was nothing to write home about. You're definitely paying for the service (which was excellent) and the ambiance.

One of servers had an attitude, menu is significantly smaller. Not what it used to be.

Wonderful food, service and environment. The back room overlooking the lake had a beautiful view and we felt attended to but not overwhelmed. Very pleased with our experience and we will be back!

My friend and I celebrated our birthday together. We had not been back for almost 10 years. The service, food , and ambiance had not changed. What a wonderful experience,where they even made a special birthday dessert for each of us which we loved.
We will definitely return for our birthdays next year.

I had the veal, it was ok but very very salty. The potatoes and mushrooms with spinach was very good! The salad was very small but fresh! Coffee was very good, hubbys tornadoes were great and the escargot were outstanding! I always wanted to try the veal but will not order again!

On a sunny afternoon, sitting by the window, looking out on the beautiful turquoise/blue waters of Lake Michigan, we enjoyed our lunch while celebrating our anniversary. Every morsel of food was delicious! We were treated to a shared chocolate dessert complete with a lit candle. Thank You Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro :)

We love this restaurant and usually are very happy with the service. This time we felt we got a little less attention to our requests, but overall we still enjoyed our experience.

I had brunch on my birthday 3/8/20. My crab eggs Benedict was delicious. The service was excellent and the view of the lake was absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for making my birthday a memorable one.

We were here to celebrate a friend's birthday. The meal was amazing, the service was fantastic, and they even brought out a treat for the birthday girl even though we didn't tell them in advance that it was a celebratory meal. Very well executed!

The food was excellent, as always, but the wait staff seemed to be a bit off in their timing. I think they had too many tables to wait on and they weren’t able to give good attention to each table they had. While we were waiting for them to take our order I thought it was unusual that the guy serving bread to the tables looked right at ours but didn’t offer us any bread. I feel confident that they will address these issues.

The food was delicious. I did have to always ask for more water and bread. I don't like to have to flag down the waitress every time I need more water. I just don't think that the level of service was as good as it could have been.

We haven’t been here in 12 years. The service was great. We had a window seat which was nice. My meal did not wow me. I found the sauce to be too overpowering. My husband enjoyed his meal.
