Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro
I made a reservation through Open Table a month in advance for a table at Bartolotto's Lake Park. When we arrived we found the restaurant was temporarily shuttered. No one informed us, and in fact we got the standard Open Table reminder the day before with a request to confirm, which we did. Someone is asleep at the switch.
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 :)
Great food with great service and a fantastic view of Lake Michigan
Carissa was a fantastic server. Thank you for a lovely birthday lunch with my mom.
Excellent food the new soup potato leek is fantastic.
Carissa is very efficient
Our favorite place- never disappoints. Excellent food, service and atmosphere.
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!
Overpriced for quality
Lake Park Bistro is our go to restaurant for celebrations. They are consistent in all aspects of their service. We have recommended LPB and will continue continue to do so.
Awesome setting, amazing food. Excellent service!
The food was tasty and the service was great! The area we were in was quite noisy, but we dealt with it. They provided special birthday dessert and numerous gluten free options!
Jenn, our server was warm and kind. She stayed on top of things without being intrusive. Food was delicious as always.
As always, waiter, Greg Faludi was wonderful. He met all our highest expectations and willingly shut off he annoying music (absolutely not necessary).
Delicious food. Gracious service. And a spectacular view.
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.
Lake Park Bistro has never dissappointed us. The food and service is impeccable. The drinks are fantastic. It is the type of place I would highly recommend to anyone.
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.
Perfect evening. We were not rushed at all which was such a pleasure!
As always the food and service are outstanding! It is a delight to eat here.
The salmon and beat salad was excellent and the chicken was very good. Wonderful atmosphere with waiters who know how to a pace a meal and make meal selections.
As always good food and great service. Very disappointing there is no longer an omelette on the Sunday brunch menu. Probably look to other brunch options in town.
Mealy hangar steak, cold frites. Bearnaise
sauce never appeared. First time I've been disappointed here in 20 years.
Fantastic food and service!
Food was excellent service was beyond perfect. Will be back soon!
Arrived early and was able to be seated by the winder to enjoy a view of the lake. The service was great and the food excellent! Definitely worth it.
Service was a little slow! Heard a wait person say they were understaffed. Otherwise, a good experience!
Alex, our Server, was excellent as he was friendly and knowledgeable.
Our meals were perfectly prepared and delicious.
Great value for the money.
As always it is always a memorable experience going to Lake Park . From the food to the service , it is a one of a kind experience
Just bit noisy. Service was excellent. Was greeted warmly
