Great service, safe dining, absolutely delicious food!
Great job with covid safety, plexiglass dividers between every table. AMAZING food and nice wine list.
This place is magical! Every single dish (and bite) was just out of this world.
Our server, Nikki, was so much fun and very attentive.
I HIGHLY recommend 10/10.
The food was fantastic. The Argentinian pork is a must! They also have a great set up to keep everyone distanced for covid. Sarah was a fantastic waitress! So good I’m coming again a week later!
Always good food. I have to write fifty words here in order to give this place five stars.
We had the loveliest Friday night dinner on the patio near the fireplace. It was chilly but we brought a blanket. The food was outstanding as always and we had the nicest server. ☺️
Everything at La Merenda is outstanding. Best bets of many delicious options are gnocchi, goat cheese curds, and save room for tres leches cake. It’s the best dessert in the city. Wine list is unique with many good options and service is attentive and perfect. Covid updated plexiglass makes for an Uber-safe feel. Highly recommend.
was a great dining experience. awesome food! the COVID safety measures they have in place were perfect, felt very safe.
La meranda was great this weekend. I haven’t been to many restaurants during covid but felt totally and completely safe. The tables were nicely spread out with dividers between each table. The service and food were good as always!
Only our second date night out since COVID. La Merenda was set up with each table being divided with screens. It made us feel so safe! We had an incredible time and the food was phenomenal. Highly recommend for a COVID safe date night!
Excellent food and service. very safe given the steps taken for covid-safe dining. They have plastic dividers and tables are very spread out.
Amazing food. Service wasn’t the best but usually it’s great!
Tapas! Specials! Food from all over the world grown as locally as possible.
Awesome food and drinks. Great selection of food and a variety for all different tastes.
Friendly staff, fantastic service! Enjoy sitting at the bar or enjoying the outside patio. Food is always on point.
Haven’t been here in years. Brought my 22yo son and his friends. Items have changed (osso bucco!!), but the 12 items we ordered were outstanding! Never disappoints and continues to impress... Thanks, Peter!
Amazing food and great service... This restaurant has always been one of my favorites.
I would highly recommend when looking for a tapas restaurant!
Our waitress was great. Very friendly, attentive, and offered many great food and drink suggestions. The pork empanadas were my favorite of the many, many dishes, and the jalapeño infused tequila drink was fantastic! Very clean bathroom.
We have been there numerous times over the years, we did in person dining and I think this was the best meal I’ve ever had there!
Nice date night environment. We went at 5 pm and it was a great mid 30s date night.
Our server Serena was the best! So attentive and comedic and all around wonderful! Can’t wait to be back...this place makes me so happy and the food.....WOW :)
Great Covid precautions. Very knowledge staff. Polite and professional. Food was outstanding.
La Merenda never disappoints! Even during the days of COVID, the food and service were still amazing. Short Rib gnocchi and the Butter Chicken are just a few of my many favorites dishes.
Our waitress, Nikki, was absolutely amazing! Very attentive, friendly, well familiar with the menu and able to give great recommendations! Food was absolutely divine! Everything was outstanding! I very highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!
Adorable patio with great atmosphere (would love if they put in some heaters as it get's colder too!) But we had a spectacular and attentive waitress who seemed happy to be there and help people; we shared 4 delicious plates between two of us, and there were plenty more we would be excited to order in the future. It was the third visit for me and definitely won't be the last.
So good! Never disappoints! The food is always so perfectly prepared and flavorful.
We ate outside. No heaters
Excellent meal in a pleasant outdoor setting. I will be back soon!
Amazing food and service! The patio felt very safe and I can't wait to go back.
Fantastic, delicious, highly recommend. Will be back
Anniversary meal. The tasting menu for 2 was fantastic!
Always a good experience at La Marenda!
We love the patio here and were disappointed to hear that they will not be using heat lamps. That is unfortunate as we will not eat inside in the colder weather. We love the food here and the service is always very good and last night was no exception. We have eaten here 3 times in the past 4 months due to the quality of food and the patio. Hope we have a mild winter.
The food was outstanding and the outdoor patio was very quaint and relaxing
Food and service as always were absolutely amazing! Hands down still one of my all time favorite places to dine!
The food is always amazing and the service is always great.
We loved the variety of tapas from many different cultures.
Great spot, covered outdoor seating. However they currently do not have heaters (hopefully coming soon).
Food is some of the best in Milwaukee.
I've eaten at La Merenda a handful of times, and it never disappoints. This time I took my best friend to celebrate his birthday, and it was his first time there. He felt in love with the restaurant just like I've had years ago. La Merenda is the perfect place for any kind of occasion. Thank you La Merenda for the great food and excellent experience.
