    Visited Sat 2/4/23. Service and food has declined. Pros: Cosmo martini was excellent, as was mushroom soup, scallops, creme bruleea and coffee. Ribeye just ok, (some grizzle), seabase with clams was fishy. Tyler our waiter started off strong but attentiveness waned. Sarah took a long time to appear, was hard to hear, (we had to ask for bread and butter), and she either never placed our second drink order or didn't retrieve it, so we finally flagged down Tyler. Another waiter working the room was ungodly loud, ruining the ambience. Sad that the restaurant is not meeting a standard of what it had been.

    Had to flag down someone to finally get some bread. Mushroom soup was tasty but service was extremely slow and the portion of sea bass was tiny for price charged.

    We ordered a bottle of bubbly with dinner. In a fine dining restaurant you would expect the waiter to do a refill pour whenever he stops by. We had several visits from him and his assistant to refresh utensils, etc, but ended up doing our own pours anyway. Yes we expect a lot from a high end restaurant, but we also expect the high end service that comes with a $450.00 bill. I would still recommend this location, but beware the under trained staff.

    Lake Park Bistro is in a lovely location. I hadn’t been there in awhile so I wanted to go & check it out. At first the service was great. The wait staff was really on top of things. The last 45 minutes, not so much. They all disappeared at once. I was expecting good things from the menu because it was great years ago. Our experience this time was not good at all. I had sea bass & scallops & my husband had the filets. Neither was seasoned well. Both were quite bland. The sea bass was almost like a soup. I don’t think the dish worked at all. Over all at the cost of $244 after tip I won’t be back

    We celebrated two January birthdays. The food and service were stellar as always. They were as accommodating as they could be to seat us at a quieter table but the acoustic in general at this venue are always a bit loud for quiet conversation.

    Service was excellent, the staff was pleasant and prompt. Ambiance was also pleasant overall. The wine was fantastic and the staff and sommelier were a joy to interact with. The food, however, was not good at any price point, but for semi-fine dining, it was incredibly disappointing. Possibly an off night for the chef, but the steak and fish were reminiscent of TGIF or Chili’s, but priced to set expectations much higher. Dessert was tasty but did not salvage a meal headlined by two dishes with no flavor.

    Was one of our go to places, but probably won't be coming back. Service was not good and the 3 hanger steak plates were all tough and dry. At first I thought my knife was dull but the other 2 diners had the same problem. Expect much better service and food for $400.00

    With our reservation we mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday and a momentous anniversary and it was recognized by the staff when we checked in and again at the table by our servers. Each part of the meal was done to perfection, service was brilliant, attentive but overdone. It was a lively crowd so conversation was a bit challenging but it is our “go to” for special occasions and taking out of town guests.

Special thanks to the hostess (sorry we didn’t get your name, but she was wearing a reddish velvet outfit) thank you for moving us to a nice table by the window and a nice hand written note! Our server Sarah was phenomenal. She really knew the menu and was extremely knowledgeable! We will definitely be back!! Thank you

    This restaurant is the best restaurant in Milwaukee. My wife and I had dinner here for new Years Eve. It was the best food and dinning experience we have had so far. The food was excellent and the wine was the same. The bar area also has seating for dining and has a nice ambiance to it. The service was professional.We will make this a regular special dinner destination. We had the 4 course meal option, $75, well worth it. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

    The usual fabulous food and atmosphere, service a bit too attentive - asked several times if we were still enjoying our food, as though we were upsetting someone's schedule. The braised short ribs were absolutely magical. But the size of the ice cream on the cherry claufoutis made us laugh out loud - it was microscopic! Our first time at LPB since covid, soooo glad to be back!!!
