We celebrated Valentines Day at Lake Park Bistro for the 3rd year now and once again the food and service was simply great! I’d recommend Lake Park to anyone celebrating a special occasion or just a nice dinner.

Delightful! Beautiful food, prompt respectful service, and relaxed and beautiful setting. Every bite was thoughtfully composed. To paraphrase my wife, in a culinary milieu that seeks to defy expectations, Lake Park Bistro does the opposite by both meeting and exceeding the expectations of French bristro cuisine.

While the food was great, I was slightly taken aback by the service this time. Our server did not check in on us much at all, did not ask if I needed more wine until I flagged her down, and shared specials with other tables but not with us. When I asked she bluntly said "no, there aren't any it's just the menu." It was a strange experience for a Bartolotta's restaurant.

I’ve rated the food, service and ambiance all five stars. For me excellent dining experiences come down to the details. Are the staff friendly? Check. Great cocktails? Check. Fresh/warm bread etc. They just get everything right. If I wanted to be super picky the only complaint would be the poor acoustics. Not so bad to keep from going back though.

We had a very pleasant waitress, but the service was incredibly slow. My omelet from brunch bordered on being cold. I would have sent it back, but given how long it took to get our party of 7 seven to get served in the first place, I didn't want to chance waiting even longer. I felt like I had to beg for coffee refills. The restaurant was not all that busy, but it could be they were understaffed. I've been here several time before and never ran into this problem. We won't be going back anytime soon. Very disappointing, as it was a birthday celebration for my wife .

This high end restaurant is usually a benchmark by which others in the city are measured, and food wise it was. This night service was an issue. My guess is the staffing shortage that impact so many service type industries has reared it's head at Lake Park as well. Unfortunately at this price point the standard is high and the room for error low. This evening did not live up to my expectations and will make me think twice when dining out in the future.

From start to finish, we had a wonderful experience. We got there before our reservations and had a drink at the bar, bar staff was friendly and made great drinks. We then were able to be seated at a table by the window that looked at the lake, gorgeous view! Brian and Carissa were our wait staff, so attentive, so patient in explaining things, and even made sure that we were out in time to see our show! Our food was incredible and beautifully plated. What an incredible time!

Lake Park Bistro is our favorite Milwaukee restaurant. We have been going to France for 45 years and the Lake Park Bistro has the atmosphere and quality of outstanding French restaurants. They even invite a top quality French chef to come to the restaurant each month and prepare a wonderful special lunch.

On January 31st we had another outstanding dinning experience with friends.

Sitting by the window is perfect. It has become a tradition to come here after a Sunday theater matinee.

This is my favorite restaurant in Milwaukee. We were seated at a table next to a window (request) on a sunny, frigid Sunday morning. The view of Lake Michigan was so beautiful and relaxing. Service and friendliness of the staff was top notch. We never felt rushed. The food was delicious. We ordered off the brunch menu and I had the crab eggs Benedict, which also included a Mimosa, soup and desert. My husband had steak and eggs, the baked onion soup and sorbet for desert. I can’t say enough about this place. Perfect for special occasions or just to treat yourself.

It was a very nice meal and was cooked to perfection. The mushroom soup was excellent. The portions were good and the desert was excelent. The french version of moscato was very good, whatever that was. We really had a nice time, and the atmosphere was very nice. It was not the most romantic as the lighting was a little bright, but very nice. The waitress was very attentive, but not overly friendly which is how we like it. The icicles and the view were nice as well, although if they fell onto the sidewalk below, someone could get hurt.

It was my first time visiting the Lake Park bistro. The food was great, service was impeccable and we sat by the window overlooking the lake. Although it was snowy, it was still a beautiful experience. I would definitely go back in the summer to take in the view.

We always go to LPB for lunch on MLK Day since way back when we were both working and had the day off. There's a beautiful view of Lake Michigan (esp. if it's snowing) and the food has been consistently delicious. Desserts are wonderful, too. Service has always been friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient.
