My friends and i had a wonderful meal. Our service was fabulous and the food was excellent! Thank you @!!!!!
Food and wine selections are amazing. I love that they try to have such a great variety. Never disappointed.
We chose La Merenda on a recent trip into Milwaukee and were incredibly pleased by the menu. The dishes are an eclectic collection of flavors, and all were delicious. It was a great value as well. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere had a nice hum without being overwhelming.
Good food. Good menu. Had a great time. Great if you’re in a sharing mood.
The pistachio arugula salad was so delicious, we ordered a second one.
Was great. Food always the best !
I have not been to La Merenda in more than a year and it was just as good as I remember it, if not better! The food was fantastic! One of the best restaurants in town!
The food was amazing and the service was very good as well! Great dining experience!
The food here is always fabulous. Their menu is constantly changing and filled with tasty bites from all over the world. The staff are knowledgeable and access is easy with street parking. La Merenda is one of our favorites!
I don't think you can have a bad experience at this restaurant.
Food was excellent; service was great. Overall, it was a fantastic dining experience
Once again, La Merenda exceeded expectations. Of course, the food was fantastic and the wait staff were helpful and quick to serve and to keep the table neat. But during the weeks before our meal, their staff was wonderful. Three times I had to call them to ask if the reservation could be increased, and they were quick to assure me each time that it wouldn't be a problem. We ended up with 12 people, with two celebrating birthdays. They sat us at a table that could easily seat 12, with a lazy susan in the middle that made sharing the small plates a breeze. And each of the birthday girls was offered a free dessert at the end of the meal. Everyone is looking forward to returning next year, when our birthdays come around again.
Haven't been in here in few years and it was still great! We won't wait as long next time. Only one dish wasn't so great (not bad, but not great like the others) - the confit duck. Love this gem, though!
Favorite restaurant in the city & blows Movida out of the water. Service is always impeccable. First place I take anyone visiting from out of town. Hearty tapas so you always leave full if you happened to arrive with an empty stomach.
Whitefish tostadas, Argentinian Pork Belly, Shrimp dumplings, Snapper Ceviche, Steak w/ Chimichurri were all outstanding.
Excellent food and service
Really enjoyed the terrific food and the opportunity to make a few choices to start the meal and then expand based on the group needs.
As always, the dishes we chose were spectacular. We had Whitefish tostados, fried Duck and an enchilada. Absolutely delicious. Our server was friendly, professional and didn’t hurry us!
Outstanding food quality. Great wine list and wonderful staff. The back deck area is always a treat in the warm months.
Very cute place. Busy but quick friendly service. Good value but make sure you order enough.
Great place to celebrate a birthday with people that don't mind sharing plates together!
This is by far one of our favorite restaurants in Milwaukee. We recently brought my parents for the first time. It was my mothers birthday. Not only did they both absolutely love it, but my father said it was one of the best meals he's ever had. Such a treat to share this gem with them. We are never disappointed :-)
Great variety of tapas that were all so different by delicious.
Had a reservation and did not need to wait at all.
Did feel slightly cramped as we were sitting in a booth between 2 bigger groups.
Service was great - would recommend.
La Merenda is consistently one of our top choices when it comes to dining. The food is always phenomenal and there is always plenty of unique options to chose from. The service always knocks it out of the park even when it is incredibly busy. I would (and always try to) recommend La Merenda to a friend!
Always delicious and great service!
As always near perfection.
We really enjoyed ourselves, excellent experience! The risotto and beef empanadas were too salty but otherwise ok.
Truly our favorite restaurant in Milwaukee! Delicious food, fun atmosphere. Never disappoints!!
Food was outstanding as was the service. Highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy great food in a friendly, efficient setting
Made a few wrong tapas choices, still very good
A dining experience that is well worth the time and money. Food was delicious with intricate pairings. Opportunities to experience a variety of culinary options in one sitting. Strongly recommend to anyone foodie. Not for picky eaters.
The seafood options were outstanding! Such creative variety.
Excellent food and service! Love the fact that local vendors are used.
We had our work dinner there, 2nd year. Love the choices and service was great! Will likely go there next year too
Always great service great food . We are never disappointed . We visit as often as we can . Keep up the great work .😊
Delicious as always!
Never bad food or experience. They get full stars every time. But I'll be waiting for some of my favorite dishes to rotate back on. Nonetheless all dishes are fabulous.
