Food was sub par, staff was friendly but after we got our food we never saw our server again and never even brought the bill. Bathrooms were really gross and very unclean.
My return visit with a friend that had never been. We were seated at a table at the bottom of the stairs. Was not a fan of that, since you have people’s feet constantly going past your head. Our server was Adam and he was nice. Food was good and drinks were even better.
Food and Service was really!! Good Try the House Margarita add Jalapeños Thank me later 😁
Taco filling was pretty sparse. Chips were really greasy.
Great food, yummy margaritas and our waiter, Johnny, was amazing!
Sabrosa (delicious) food and house margaritas. We’ve carried out the margaritas because they are exceptional. The mushroom and pork tenderloin tacos were full of flavor. The wait staff was excellent
Mother's Day brunch with my 2 young adult kids. Food was excellent and a good value. Server was delightful and was very helpful in describing menu options. Overall a great experience!
This is my new spot to recommend for anyone in the downtown area. I've been by the place so many times and am so glad that I was able to get a reservation last minute for Mother's Day. Waitress and food were excellent. They even gave Mom a free champagne flute too.
Highly highly recommend!
Great Mother's Day brunch at Blue Bat. Fundido and Chips was amazing. Miso glazed Salmon and Bao Benedit were very tasty. Unique, fun flavors. Server was extremely nice too! Overall great first experience.
Nachos with tuna and Mexican street corn were fabulous. Tequila flights were a great way to sample!
It was a great time and perfect for my friend's birthday! We also appreciated the free birthday tequila shot.
There for Cinco de Mayo; good drink and app specials. Food tasted great. Our second time there; every bit as good the second time. Great Tequila selection!!
It was my friend and I’s first time there and the food was amazing! Our server was so friendly and the drinks were good, would definitely recommend
Didn’t love the food but it was a nice location. Definitely would not pick again for a nice date night.
Very satisfying without being heavy. Very flavorful and excellent margaritas!
Understaffed but not their fault, people don’t want to work these days, I’ll go again.
Food was great and our server was LOVELY! We went on a Sunday for brunch and we definitely recommend
we loved everything about our experience! we'll definitely be back.
The food and drinks were delicious and our server John was very attentive and made some great suggestions. We will be back for more
schwarma handhelds are surprisingly delicious!!!
Thanks for the response! Glad you tried the shawarma! Hope you come back soon.
While it did seem like perhaps they were understaffed, our waiter was awesome. He was very nice and apologetic for any wait times. Food was delicious, excellent tequila.
Thanks for your patience Erin! We hope to see you again soon!
I did not have high expectations for this modern restaurant and it was AMAZING. Margaritas are delicious and tacos are unique and filling. Will be returning very soon. Highly recommend FGT Taco.
Thanks for trying us out even though you were hesitant! The FGT is definitely my guilty pleasure on the menu! It should really be ordered more.
I always love to go and relax at Blue Bat. The food is amazing, and let’s not forget the drinks.
Thanks for the review! We hope to see you for drinks and snacks soon =)
Best guacamole and chips anywhere, entrees were good and there was a lot to choose from.
Thanks for the review Julie! We get our tortilla's fresh from a local tortilleria and then fry them in house, it's painstaking, but so worth it.
Awesome food, cool looking spot, fast and great service
Thanks for the review, hope we see you again soon!
We were from out of town and had heard we should check it out. It was amazing and Johnny our waiter was top notch. We will be back especially for the brussel sprouts appetizer ---amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for checking us out! See you next time you're in MIlwaukee!
Overall food was good. Service was good. A little pricey for what what it is.
Thanks for the review! Sorry for the 3* value. I'll talk with the chef to make sure everything is coming out to our standards.
Overall customer service was fantastic. Jury still out on the food. I did attend during brunch. I want to try the tacos so I can give an honest assessment.
Thanks for the review! I'm sorry you weren't a huge fan of our brunch options. We hope to see you for dinner soon!
Very disappointed in both the food and service for Saturday brunch. The steak and egg tacos were simply cold eggs with steak thrown on top, no sauce so salsa or anything. They had minimal vegetarian/vegan options and the service was slow and servers were not polite.
Quality service, comfortable space, and amazing food!
Thanks for the review Sydney! We can't wait to see you again!
Spicy Mayo on pork bao mi was so spicy I couldn’t feel my face. Disappointed that I couldn’t order a drink off of the drink flight list by itself but instead would have had to order all 5 drinks.
I'm sorry the spicy mayo was too spicy, I do think it is the spiciest thing on our menu, we can always serve it on the side or without! Sorry about the drink flight. Since we only sell these drinks once a week, we batch a certain amount and the same for each, so if we sold more of one than the other, we might not be able to sell a whole flight if/when we run out of one of the drinks.
Great service, delicious food!! Super well decorated and well kept.
Thanks for the review! We hope to serve you again!
Service was poor. The waitstaff had no idea what was going on. They didn’t have milk, cream, butter or bread....for a brunch only menu?!
We had a pitcher of the house margaritas, which were good, but it was 30$ for a pitcher, which actually is served in a tequila bottle, which was cool. The food was good, but I felt a bit pricey for what you get. I ordered two tacos, which were $4.50 each, and didn’t come with any rice or side. They were good, but not very filling for that price. Ended up ordering some chips and guacamole because I was still hungry. The chips were homemade and yummy. My husband had a bowl, which he said was good, but again, pricey.
My partner and I eat here frequently. We love the food!
Great atmosphere, good food and wide selection of tequilas
Love eating here. There's a bright upbeat energy throughout the whole place and the food is fantastic!
Thanks for the review Meg! We can't wait to see you again!
The food and service this time was outstanding.
I do hope you will reconsider charging customers $8.50 for a small bag of tortilla chips and guacamole--and another $6.00 for salsa! Most places give you chips and salsa free of charge and only charge for guacamole. Think about it!
Thanks for the review Karen! We really do strive for service that allows people to have the most memorable experience possible! I'm sorry that you don't feel the price is justified for the chips, guac and salsa. We locally source the tortilla's in our chips & fry them in house to order. Our guac & salsa are both made fresh daily from scratch & with the labor we decided to price it at $3 per serving. I'll share your experience with the team to make sure we are portioning both correctly!
