Wonderful Father’s Day brunch
Did not receive the salad that was ordered and there was a hair in the dessert. Waitress and bartender were great. The food was mediocre.
The service and apps were great! But my steak was undercooked and honestly a little tough. It was a skirt steak so I understand the toughness but the undercooking wasn’t good. Great flavor and I would absolutely try it again!
Food was delicious as always. Chef Gary does an amazing job. Service was excellent. Music was a bit load but when asked to turn down they where gracious. Overall a great place to dine
Our filet was rare (should have been medium rare) one of my scallops was under cooked. Overall not a fan of the sauces in both dishes
Our server was great, but the host was a bit snippy when we asked if we could try the patio and move inside if it was too hot. He said “no, you have to decide now”, then checked his watch for the temperature. After all, there were maybe two tables occupied in the whole place, so….
Food was OK, but priced for business travelers on expense accounts. Nothing special that would cause me to return.
The prices for the quality of food is insane. One could eat significantly better for the price in Milwaukee area. Sea scallops served on top of baby food green pees was gross.
Good food and service, outdoor patio was nice but couch cushions were too low to sit at the table and view of parking lot was not ideal.
Great service and great food. Old fashioned is quite the spectacle !
Great vegetarian options
Music could be a tad softer
Overall ambiance and service was great. The food and cocktails were amazing will definitely be going back! Highly recommend the thyme black berry cocktail.
Didn’t have our opentable online reservation but we had confirmation. One entre cold.
First time there. I will be going back!
I've been meaning to get to Eldr + Rime for quite some time. A couple of friends of mine and I finally got there last night. I like the look of it, and the big both we were in was great. For being as slow as it was we certainly didn't see our server very often. For the beverages: Drinks were ok...I started with "The Cran" and there wasn't much to it. If the drink menu described how it was served I probably would have chosen something else. The odd one was when I asked what the current seasonal Sam Adams was. The server didn't know and had to check with the bar - My guess was going to be Cherry Wheat or Summer Ale, but the answer was Octoberfest? I got a Stella instead. My 2 friends got the Pork Schnitzel which they enjoyed. I ordered the Fish + Chips which sounded great but it was not. For lack of a better term the batter seemed "rubbery" and it was even difficult to cut through with a knife. You really shouldn't even need a knife for beer battered fish. The taste was decent. My friends and I were enjoying our time so I didn't want to end up waiting for an alternate dish so I didn't say anything. After dinner we each got a Glogg which was fun.
Finally, a great restaurant in Wauwatosa. It’s Modern, stylish with perfect ambiance and great food. My family and I enjoyed it so much!
Hands down my favorite place to eat and drink! Love the cocktails
Well the evening started out with the two people at the hostess station arguing over whether or not we could have a booth. One of them said we could but in the end we were seated at a table with no explanation as to why we couldn’t have one of the two empty booths behind us. So, the evening didn’t start out great. Then we saw the prices of drinks and meals on the menu. Talk about sticker shock!!! So overpriced. In the end it was just another hotel restaurant with mediocre food. So, I don’t think we’ll be returning anytime soon. Sorry.
The restaurant has lovely decor and great service. Some items on the menu were great, some were not (scallops). The cocktail menu was quite extensive and everything we got was good. Will definitely return.
Great brunch spot oysters are always delicious craft cocktails are amazing
Delicious and beautifully presented dishes. Lots of thought out into each course by the Chef. Server was attentive. The music is very loud, almost to the point of being difficult to hear one another...and we are young! Can’t wait for a return visit though.
Great food and ambiance! Drinks were just ok - talked to another couple and they had the same feeling.
The pork schnitzel was excellent and a generous portion, as was the hamburger which was served with fries. Two of us had scallops which were delicious, they melted in your mouth, but were pricey, $32 for 4 medium sized scallops and we left hungry. I think the scallop entree at that price should be served with something, it felt incomplete.
Service was exceptional as was the ambience. We will definitely be back!!
Food was delicious and they were able to accommodate my food allergy needs. Lovely restaurant, music a little loud and a little pricey. However the food is delicious.. Good value for the money.
Wonderful meal beautiful dining room service is great really fun cocktails
Hygge deals were great! Portions were outstanding for our meals. Atmosphere was bright & pretty.
Would definitely visit again.
Music was a bit louder than I care for, everything else was top notch.
Mother’s Day brunch. Was great!
I took my mother out for Mother’s Day and I chose Eldr & Rime because my mom is very proud of her Norwegian heritage. We were seated immediately even though we were a little early for our reservation. The decor was very pretty - like a bunch of birch trees scattered around bare wood tables. The menu looked delicious. My mother had salmon three ways, which she devoured, while I had the short rib hash, which was tasty. We also ordered mimosas and coffee. The coffee was very smooth and hot. The mimosas, while flavorful, were too strong. I think that’s a trend these days for alcoholic drinks to taste too much of alcohol. I spent less than $100 for the two of us and I would definitely go back.
Took 15 minutes before some one took a drink order. Person who replenished our water was excellent.
Food was fine, nothing was exceptional.
Server was unfriendly and the service slow and the place was 75% empty. Food was mediocre. Love the atmosphere and decor and would go back only to enjoy the bar area.
The atmosphere and service were stellar!! Couldn't ask for better. Water was brought to our table the moment we sat down, our waitress brought our menus and asked for drink orders shortly after. The entire restaurant has a very cool, relaxed atmosphere.
We felt everything was very good, but on the expensive side. We were 4 people, one had the salmon 3 ways which was excellent, the pancakes were very dense and tasted ok, the shrimp on toast was very good, the eggs/sausage/fingerlings and toast was good. Three of us had cocktails, which were also very good. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would recommend going. I would love to try the dinner next!
The food is very good - Scandinavian inspirations through the different parts of the menu, with a strong seafood/ fish component. Their signature old fashioned is smoked, and one of the better cocktails I've had recently. It's a large space, nicely broken up in to zones, with a fair amount of ambient noise. They're doing a very good job and we'll be back.
It was great to have familiar cuisines what we are used to have in Finland, my home country. Especially I liked starters: Bread cheese with cloudberry jam, salmon plate with ryebread and beetroot salad! Atmosphere was cosy and fancy at the same time.
Great service, interesting menu items and relaxing ambience.
Portions were small for the price. Bread basket would've been appreciated.
What a great new place in the area! The service was great. The food was outstanding. And the drinks were very delicious. My favorite was the Rekyr Old Fashion, it came out smoked and was perfectly smooth. Will definitely return!
This is our third time in 4 weeks. This restaurant checks all the boxes for us
A wonderful Easter meal service always great food uniquely delicious
Went here for brunch on a Sunday. Wa seated promptly. Our waiter answered all our questions with the detail we needed. The menu wasn't overly long and the choices were great. The Spiced Mimosa was very good. Service was great, too. Just enough attention to meet our needs.
I would definitely try this for dinner in the future.
