As always, it was a fabulous evening but too noisy to the point that we could not hear each other speak.
The food was exceptional and the waitresses were very good.

Always great food, service and value. Lake Room is noisy but everything else makes up for that issue.

The restaurant was having an off day. Service and food just weren’t up to what we typically have and not quite to Bartolotta standards.

We celebrated our anniversary, they had a congratulations card on our table, made sure we had a window table, gave us complimentary sparkling wine after the meal, and every staff member was friendly and efficient. Our brunch was terrific.

They did an incredible job making my wife feel special on her birthday! A handwritten note, a candle on a surprise dessert and the hostess and servers all wished her a happy birthday. Definitely went above and beyond with the usual impeccable service and outstanding food.

Great views and location, but a bit loud and hard to hear each other. Service was so,so. A bit rushed to get going and very limited in the advice provided on menu items.

My wife and I chose Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro as the place to celebrate her birthday. It was a wise choice! Everything was perfect. The view, the ambiance, the food, the service - we would not have changed a thing. I highly recommend this wonderful venue.

Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro is a MUST for anyone visiting Milwaukee! What classic gem of a restaurant! Ask for a table by a window and gaze at the beautiful landscaping and lake beyond the trees. The noise level is lively but the appointments and service are impeccable! My husband had the halibut and just raved about it. I had the Thursday special which was veal and it was delicious! Definitely worth trying!!

I live in Miami and would fly all the way back to Milwaukee for the Steak Tartare! Wonderful experience and really fine dining. The noise level is high — but with the restaurant so crowded because of the great offerings what else can one expect?

Our overall experience was fabulous. Being from the West Bend area, we don’t have access to 5-star fine dining like Lake Park Bistro. Feeling a little out of our comfort zone, the waiter & waitress that were taking care of us made us feel very homey especially our 17 & 14 yr old boys. And that speaks volumes. And of course the food was amazing.

The food as expected was outstanding. The service started out poorly when the waitress did not explain all of the options on the menu. We did not see her again and another server took over. He was very good. Even with the good food, the overall dining experience was disappointing. We were seated at the row of tables for two against the wall. The tables were too close together. We heard most every word of the loud conversation going on between the men seated next to us. The noise level in this restaurant is one of the highest that I have ever experienced. I could not hear my wife speaking across the table unless she was almost shouting.
