Our reservation was accepted and then we arrived at a closed restaurant ...not a classy move on anyone's part.... Hinterland's or Open Table.
The food was wonderfully prepared. I had the sea bass and is was perfectly prepared with some greens and a sweet onion jus. And, the chocolate potted cake for dessert was perfect. The bar is separated from the dining room, so there was no issue with noise. But, most importantly, our waiter was wonderful -- accommodating, knowledgeable and just really an expert at his craft.
Terrible servie, waited over 20 minutes for our drinks and there were only 3 tables occupied at the time. Very small and limited menu. Ford was good, once we got it but very small portions.
The chef prepared a vegan meal for me which was delicious. There is a real abundance of vegetables on the menu.
Fantastic service. Our waiter was very educated on the food and drinks. Showed us a great time. Food was amazing.
There were four people in our party and we all tried different entrees. Each item was prepared wonderfully with interesting herbs, spices and cheeses. One was the Wild Boar and the sauce on it cut some of the gamey flavor. Another person had the Asparagus salad and it red onions, radishes, goat cheese and a wonderful balsamic vinegar dressing. Another person ordered the chicken and it was the most moist chicken that she eve had. The fourth person had the halabit with a cold cuscus and said it all was flavorful!
We have enjoyed Hinterland-MKE three times now. It has always been well above average, both in food quality and service. The menu evolves, based on what is available to the chefs, making it a fun culinary adventure. These meals and beverages are of high quality and should be savored rather than simply consumed. We recommend Hinterland-MKE to friends and look forward to dining there again.
No initial service for 5-10 minutes. We ultimately left before service ever showed up.
Had a lovely meal here recently. The scallops were outstanding--we ordered them with a curry taken from another entree. The boar loin was perfectly cooked and satisfying, tho the accoutrements were just alright. Our server Ian was very informative & put together a fun and tasty beer flight and had good wine recs as well. Desserts were massive!! Tarte tartin was yummy but choco cake was too fluffy for me. (Personal preference for chocolate that's rich and dense.)
All in all an enjoyable meal with great service. Recommend.
My wife and I stopped in on the occasion of Milwaukee Downtown Dining week. We were greeted with an interesting and delicious menu. Specifically, as regards my meal, my salad included pickled grapes. It never would have occurred to me to pickle a grape much less to put it in an arugula salad. But now that I've had some, I feel I need to figure out how to properly pickle grapes so I can have them all the time. That's the way I feel about most of the menu. There were lots of opportunities to explore different taste combinations.
