Everything was awesome at this restaurant! The service was on point and the food was beyond my expectations!
Food was AWESOME! And portions were generous for tapas. Loved catching up with an old friend here!
Food was outstanding! Party of 9 & everyone was pleased.
Lovely dining room with exceptional small plate options. Loved the fact that we could order a couple of things and order more as our appetites allowed. We also were offered wine tasting for wines that we were not familiar with. Our waitress, Rachel, was outstanding.
I am never disappointed. The food was hot, fresh, and above all delicious. The various small plates came at a good interval and we had ample time to converse with our friends. We were never rushed and the staff was fantastic.
Everything we ate was amazing! Service was fantastic!
We love this place! We got engaged here and celebrate almost all of our significant events at La Merenda. Food is delicious and the staff is excellent! Can’t say enough about this place!
the food should always take center stage, without a doubt La Merenda is on target, layer upon layer of wonderful flavors
Every dish we ordered at La Merenda was perfect. The delicata squash special and the pesto gnocchi were the stars of the night. The service was attentive and friendly, and we left feeling very happy and satisfied. We love the focus on supporting local farms and serving a menu that reflects what's in season. Would absolutely recommend La Merenda for a special dinner out!
Loved the service and the suggestion for 2 dishes a person is the perfect amount of food! My dateand I finished the last dish and simultaneously put down our forks and went “wow i am so full this was delicious”. Will be coming back undoubtably and I will be telling all my friends about this wonderful place.
Also my date has fruit and nut allergies and the staff made sure as to keep her as safe as possible and to me that is the most important part. Th statff generally wanted us to have a good time and were more than willing to accommodate our allergies and still provide us with absolutely delicious tapas.
Grwonderful small plates. Tasty. Great homemade ginger ale and cola. Desserts very tasty. Service personal and friendly. Highly recommend.
Excellent as usual - been going here for years and love it!
A special dining experience because of the wide variety and creativity of ‘small plates.’ Using local products is a plus. During good weather the patio is both quieter and a different kind of natural beauty. Inside a kind if intimate conversation would be difficult but the general sense of joy is palpable and if not unique, clearly inviting and fun.
As always, the service and food/wine was outstanding. We brought friends to try it out. They're ready to go again. It is always a fun and delicious meal, especially if you share the tapas. Different flavors and tastes that are wonderful.
I had heard about La Merenda for a while and how great the food was. In spite of this, I assumed the food would not live up to the hype. Boy, was I wrong. Everything we had was delicious. Can't wait to go back!
We eat here whenever we are in the area at mealtime. Enjoy being served by Nikkie, who bought me tres leches cake on our first visit here for my birthday. Love the variety of entrees.
La Merenda offers a savory culinary experience from start to finish. Every dish I’ve tried Is tasty and the gluten free options are varied and excellent!
As always La Merenda did not disappoint. The food was fantastic and the service fantastic. I normally shy away from ordering specials, but the chicken crepes featured last night were fantastic.
We celebrated a birthday - it was outstanding!! So many wonderful options. And the tapas were perfect for a group that included both vegetarians and non vegetarians. Wonderful selection. Each tapa is unique and delicious! The staff made it a very special celebration.
5 stars. The food was amazing and creatively put together. I loved trying new plates from all over the world. Order a bunch and share with friends and loved ones.
Amazing food and great service. Don't be fooled by their reservation table online. They seemed to have a lot of empty table even though they were solid book till 9:30 PM according to their reservation calendar.
Never been disappointed with the food. Public Transit accessible (#15 and Green Line 1/2 block away).
Great meal to celebrate our anniversary!
La Merenda continues to be my favorite restaurant in Milwaukee. The food is absolutely superb - my guests and I have yet to try a dish we do not enjoy.
What a gem.
Outstanding menu with wonderfully creative options.
If not THE BEST, certainly a contender for best MKE foodie-worthy restaurant. Awesome!
This is our go to restaurant bar none in Milwaukee. Always great food, wonderful service folks, good drinks, and everyone enjoys themselves immensely!
Really eclectic variety of small plate options. Every plate we got to share was delicious! Definitely would have kept ordering more if we were wealthier folks but we all left happy.
Went there for a business dinner, service was great and food uniquely delicious. Everything tasted so good.
Always fresh with intriguing menu items that get you to try things you normally might not. Never a disappointing meal! We love this place.
I have been to La Merenda 3 times in the last month and love it. Delicious, creative food. Great, friendly, knowledgeable servers. Fun to take new people there. Yum.
La Merenda never disappoints.
Amazing service and incredible food. Patio dining was intimate and beautiful. La Merenda never disappoints!!!
La Merenda never disappoints. It is our "go to" place to take friends and everyone always loves it. My husband worked in the food industry and we even took the corporate chef who thought it was great. The food is so flavorful and unique. I would say this is definitely one of our top 3 favorite restaurants in the entire city - highly recommend!
Definitely worth it. We loved the multi ethnic cuisine. The empanadas were especially great. I would never have thought beef and cherries would be so delicious together!
Great menu for all of us. GF options were amazing.
Food was good, Little disappointed the waitress wasn’t able to do anything to help celebrate the 5 year anniversary though. She basically ignored me when I asked if she could bring out a dessert or something for my fiancé.
Service was amazing and also the food was delicious, my favorite plate was the Argentinian beef, would recommend and go back again!!!
I love this experience since I am to try food from different countries.
We are frequent clients and always enjoy savoring their good dishes accompanied of good service
