    The drinks and appetizers were fun and tasty. The bread cheese and sliders were hits as was the old fashioned and margarita. The main dishes were very boring and not seasoned well. The price is quite high for the amount of food you get. Dessert was okay but not outstanding. I’d go here again for happy hour and have drinks and appetizers but for $250 for a party of four this was not something I’d do again.

    Overall very nice place, food and service. HOWEVER, this place is NOT in a safe area as evidenced by a gun fight that broke out last night in the hotel (Radisson) that Resturant is located in. The crowd seen changes noticeably after 9Ish and you don’t wNt to be here - Resturant, Bars and Hotel.

    Eldr + Rime so exceeded our expectations, we're kicking ourselves for not going sooner. Beautiful restaurant, great service, great food. Recommend the Swedish meatball sliders, the Harvest salad, and of all things the Roasted Carrot Pate appetizer board which was wonderful and completely delicious. Nice bar area, we talked about going and just having some sliders or curds at the bar. Can't wait to go back.

    Ate at Eldr + Rime for the first time last night with husband and adult son. We had heard positive feedback from others about their experiences and we were not disappointed. Husband had the 6oz filet topped with crab, garden salad and our son and I had the salmon with artichoke. Entrees were prepared just right, the smokiness was subtle yet also enhancing and the overall taste of our entrees was perfect! We shared the Bread Cheese aquavit flambe Appetizer which was excellent and shared a side of grilled asparagus. Our server, Emily, was knowledgeable, appropriately attentive and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience.

    Loved the salmon 3 ways. three distinct flavors and did not have the saltiness of most cured salmon (both hot and cold versions). Paired with the Reykr Old Fashioned (wonderful smoky aroma) it was a perfect combination. Finished off with the Creme Brule', it was the perfect meal.

    Short but great menue. Salmon, fish fry and venison tartar were all great. Cream Brule suffered from some charred sugar, better when it is browned. Tables far apart. We were on the bar side of dining room, probably quieter on other side. Good service

    I just love the decor - sort of contemporary Nordic with a hint of wood smoke in the air. Our table had the pork schnitzel, the salmon special, and the halibut and each was great. We had the beet salad and the harvest salad. Both were very good, but not big enough to split and share. We thought they might be based on the prices. Not too many wines to choose from by the glass. We will definitely be back.

    The menu is unique within the MKE area, with strong Nordic influences. The Salmon Three Ways is a great way to start for a table of 3-4 while indulging in a round of distinctive cocktails. Entrees are substantial and interestingly flavored. Well worth the trip if looking for something a bit different then the normal MKE fare.

    Creme brûlée was under cooked, Amish chicken was actually a Cornish hen, fries were excellent, meatball sliders excellent, layered chocolate cake had some sort of chocolate layer that had no chocolate flavor with an awful jellied gravy texture. Drinks very good but overpriced.

    Had a truly excellent meal here. Yes, it’s expensive, but the filet with king crab may have been the best tasting steak I have ever eaten. Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned. My wife ordered the halibut, which was also excellent. Cocktails are also well prepared and flavorful. Only minor gripe was that the oysters were very small. Overall, I will definitely come back.

    The service was great. The food was completely lacking. We ordered shrimp toast, halibut, and tomahawk and kid meal tenders. The tenders were the best thing we had. The tomahawk was $105 and came out well done when we ordered it medium rare. My wife had the halibut and it was completely covered in salt. The waitress and manager were great and understanding. We were celebrating our anniversary and had our two kids with us. Kind of a bummer of a night.

    entrees took almost an hour and then were grossly over cooked. everything was either too bland or had very strange seasoning — incoherent flavor palates. honestly i do not recommend. oh, and it’s in a strip mall.. so there’s that. $120 for two people w an entree and appetizer each. if the food was better that wouldn’t be an issue, but it wasn’t worth the money. this is a place you can skip.
