My husband and I went for lunch. We had the charcuterie and cheese plate, smoked trout deviled eggs and the roasted cauliflower salad. The eggs were really good, we couldn't eat them fast enough. The charcuterie plate was loaded. The salad was more than enough to share and ended the lunch perfectly. This was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Not really a place for a quick lunch. Service was great.
This time we met friends from the opposite side of town from where we live. Each couple ordered a salad to share and a sandwich to share. With a couple glasses of wine, it was perfect.
We love the food at Bavette and enjoy the ever-changing menu.
We’ve never been disappointed going to Bavette; the food is always great! Hats off to the chef and waitstaff!!
It was our first time there but our son and daughter-in-law had been before and recommended it. We liked it a lot.
Awesome wine dinner with great wine surpassed by food that was both exciting and sublime. Karen Bell is a modest but fabulous chef that shows yet again that her food alway matches the occasion. I can only say thank you Chef Bell for another great evening. You never disappoint!
Excellent food & service!
Can’t wait to try it again, our first stop in was memorable!
I always enjoy dining at Bavette. The service is amiable and the food is unique and delicious. I especially love the trout stuffed eggs and the octopus.
Very fun place with excellent food! Had the charcuterie board and middle-eastern carrot salad.
We were there last weekend with total of 7 family members, and the food -as always - was interesting, delicious and beautifully presented. Salad of yellow beets, pears squash and pancetta was filling as an evening entree. Charcuterie platter and Jamon iberico platter were especially good for a group. Wines are always delicious.
Wonderful experience, food was amazing and our waitress was very attentive and did a great job. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed sharing the beef carpaccio, smoked trout deviled eggs, octopus and flourless chocolate cake. Only critique is that the carpaccio was very heavy on the flaky salt (we use and like salt, so that means it was really too much for “normal” people).
Service was perfect. Noise was manageable. A nice little dinner after Mikwaukee Chamber Theatre’s “Jeeves at Sea” matinee. We made a reservation, but this particular evening, we wouldn’t have needed one.
Although the parking in the Third Ward is a challenge, we found the restaurant to be delightful. Every table in the restaurant was full and customers were sitting at the counter.
I had the meatball sandwich, one person had the pork sandwich and another a salad. My meal was very good. Because the waitress was very busy she was able to pay a whole lot of attention to us.
It is a bit loud as the kitchen staff is working out in the open.
I do think it is a bit pricey for lunch, but knew that going in.
We did note on the reservation that we were celebrating a bday but it was never mentioned .
Bavette is one of my favorite spots. The food and service is always exceptional. Thank you.
Great quality, taste and overall experience!
Always a hood experience. Service was great. Food comes very quickly . I know many people prefer this, but we would like it to be a little less rushed.
One of the best in MKE
Get together w a friend. Everything was perfect. Server was great!
I love going to Bavette and seeing what’s on their menu!
It’s intimate and friendly and a perfect pre-theater destination because the food is interesting and served rather quickly with a beautiful presentation. You can’t miss with La Bavette!
The meal was OK but the chicken was old, As it was a little dry. All of the accompaniments were very good.
Wonderful as always. Our “go-to” restaurant where we know we can choose anything on the menu and be very satisfied.
We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our cocktails were great. The appetizers were delicious, especially the chicken mousse spread. The soup was flavorful. We shared a new salad on the menu with beets, squash, field greens, and an amazing soft cheese. Must try it! My Cuban sandwich was terrific. Loved the spicy brown mustard. We also shared the flourless chocolate with caramel ice cream. Such a fantastic mix of flavors.
We’ll be back.
Bavette is a hidden gem around the corner from the Broadway Theater Center. The staff is incredibly friendly, the food creatively prepared, and the location ideal for anything you are doing at the Broadway Theater Center.
Seriously? I can't believe this was on Carol Deptolla's top 30! It would be a nice place for a sandwich if you're shopping in the Third Ward but dinner?! Let's get serious.
Jambon ibrrico & steak tartare...a must order!
The best Cuban sandwich ever!
Eclectic menu and good food!
The food was amazing and the service friendly and prompt. What a great place to get a bite before the theatre!
My daughter has been to Bavette but my husband and I had not until last week. I am not a big meat eater and went online to look at the menu deciding that I would order the salt cod croquettes. When we got there we were told they weren't on the menu that night. I decided to blow caution to the wind and ordered the steak sandwich. It was FABULOUS! My daughter's go to is the steak tartare and my husband tried the special - sausage curry wurst with sauerkraut pancakes. We also ordered the charcuterie plate and the roasted cauliflower and grape salad. All of it was delicious! Our reservations were at 6 pm on a Thursday night- it was slower inside that evening and noise level was fine. I have hearing issues so dining out can be challenging. All in all I can't wait to go back! It was such a nice evening. Thank you Bavette! Job well done!
Just absolutely delicious food and great selections of wines and cocktails. Best place in Milwaukee for small but delectable meat dishes.
Awesome food,service, creativity in the menu and food and gender free bathrooms.
Great, creative food. The heirloom tomato salad was fantastic. It's a lively environment!
Bavette consistently serves imaginative, delicious food. The bresola is excellent and it's a bonus to dine on Wednesdays for burger night. Also, chocolate chip cookies with potato chips were excellent!
Always a fantastic experience.
This place never disappoints. Always the best food in a friendly atmosphere. Burger nights on Wednesday’s are especially great.
This is a local gem. We enjoyed our lunch outside and have made two more
This was our first visit and it was delightful! We had a hard time choosing what to order because the menu was so very inventive. We will be back!
It was very tasty. The staff was great. I had the jamon and it was out of this world! Then had the pate also delish. For desert, had the berry lemon trifle - tasty!
