Even though we had to sit outside on one of the coldest nights this Winter, our waiter never kept us waiting and gave us impeccable service. The 4-season patio was cold, but still bearable and staff offered us really nice blankets. Can't wait to come back and sit inside!
The food and menu were amazing. The wait staff could use a bit more training. My husband and I sat while every wait person in the restaurant passed us without saying hello or asking for a drink order on a Saturday night. I understand they wanted the kitchen order all at once to pace the dinner due to covid and time restrictions, but it was a bit curious how we felt at the beginning of our meal....first impressions are lasting.
Delicious food. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Can't go wrong.
Absolutely fantastic!!! We plan to be back very soon!!!
Peggy has knocked it out of the park, as usual, with her newly imagined restaurant. Tables were nicely spaced with clear dividers so provided a comfortable environment. We'll be back!
Fabulous experience and upscale Mexican like nothing else we currently have in Milwaukee. Delicious, creative food, spectacular service, and warm, cozy ambiance. Awesome attentiveness to COVID protocols, very conscientious. A chef-owned gem that we are proud to support. Will be back and am especially looking forward to having the incredible lamb birria dish again.
We were really impressed with the service, first and foremost. The food was equally impressive. Felt really comfortable dining indoors - everyone was wearing masks and tables were spaced with plexiglass in between. Highly recommend!
good food and service. a number of dishes on the menu were not available which was a bit surprising because it was New year's Eve and you had to make reservations.
Everything was perfect. From start to finish, especially on NYE with how busy they were our server made us feel as though we were the only ones in the place. Top notch food and service-
Octopus appetizer was amazing. 3 of us had tacos and I had the salmon-
I couldn’t say anything bad about the experience even if I tried.
Will be back soon!!
Great heated patio for hearty, pandemic-conscious people. Awesome food and excellent service.
Absolutely Delicious!! The service and the food were great. I will definitely recommend it.
Delicious, we enjoyed a Crazy Water throw back meal, that we paired with a few La Dama apps - awesome dinner.
Amazing, authentic Mexican cuisine in a beautiful, intimate restaurant!! Loved it and highly recommend it!!!
La Dama provided a lively dining experience, harmonious with the Mexican cuisine. Eager to return to try more on the menu, swordfish taco was a standout!
Been here twice and thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience both times. Food and service were both great! This is not your everyday Mexican cuisine - combinations and flavors are exceptional. Great selection of cocktails as well! Will be back.
Our server, Anna, was friendly, precise and very helpful at choosing a wine.
We had a fabulous dinner from the bacon-wrapped figs, chipotle chicken empanadas in serrano crema and luscious posole appetizers to the tacos (shrimp, cactus, steak and pork) to the churros with chocolate sauce for dessert. It's upscale but not expensive and a welcome addition to the Milwaukee food scene.
The Food was scrumptious.. The value was good.. presentation was professional.. Melissa was the best server friendly and efficient.. the only thing that creep me out was the picture if the La Dama on the back wall. It was as she was staring at me while I was eating.. Thanks for the great experience..
Absolutely amazing everything! Food, service, drinks, ambiance, all of it!!!
The small plates of empanadas, and flat bread were fresh and great taste. One of the best I have eaten.
Main course, duck tacos with mole had just enough spice but not overwhelming.
Craft cocktail list is varied, we loved the Mexican Lollipop.
Would definitely go back to try other dishes.
new favorite restaurant! service, safety, food, decor! everything about la dama made the night special and amazing!
The tacos were amazing and the beans were the best I’ve ever had!
Amazing food and service! ❤️
Food was not as good as anticipated. Completely burned my mouth with too much spice in one portion of the entree, service was ok, atmosphere was too loud.
This is the second time we have eaten at La Data and it is becoming one of our favorite places. The food is so good, not your normal Mexican food. I like that they change up the menu and look forward to a lot more delicious meals there in the near future!
It was just a fusion of wonderfully prepared Hispanic/Latin culture food. Very little frills, or hypey/Instagram-y food. The detail, care and precision was outstanding 9/10. Cocktails were decent, was honestly the only somewhat disappointment. Go here now if you appreciate food.
The staff at La Dama was extremely friendly and helpful, offering a run-through of the menu and very detailed explanations of the dishes we asked about. The drink menu was slim, but The Gabriella and The Mexican Lollipop were so good, I probably would order the same ones again. It was easy to find pescatarian options, and I loved the sweet and savory tastes in every dish. The salmon encrusted with grasshoppers (chapulin) was magnificent. And I'm so thankful to the staff for giving my boyfriend and I a free dessert since we were celebrating our anniversary! While the patrons were spaced out and there were plastic barriers between booths, I try not to go out very much anymore, so I hope to get takeout from them in the future.
A beautiful, nicely spaced setting on a covered outdoor patio. Great for Covid concerned. Service and food were top notch. Menu selections very interesting.
This is real Mexican food! Not Mexican-American...
Every sauce, pastry dough and element made by hand--all completely delicious!
And with Anton behind the bar, the Margaritas were superb!
All around a wonderful dining experience! And well set up for social distancing and safety too!!
Food was good, creative Mexican. The outdoor patio in back was spacious, with a little fountain, heaters and a roof.
We went to La Dama for my mom’s birthday. We aren’t comfortable dining inside, so we dined on the heated outdoor patio. It has overhead heat lamps and a tarp covering the outside and it was a mostly balmy night - we were comfortable with the temperature but it was not toasty for all those interested in outdoor dining currently. The food was fantastic. We had the guacamole, vegetable tlayuda, tetela, and bacon wrapped dates to share. We shared a few tacos too - our favorites were the del mar and the smoked pork belly. We had the bread pudding for dessert which was sweet but not too sweet, and the perfect warm treat to end the night. Great selection of drinks too, including mocktails! Highly recommend and we’re excited to go back in the future.
La Dama has a very creative Mexican menu. I had the lamb shank in an interesting broth. We had the mole appetizer which was very good . Even the tacos (mix and match 3 for 15 were original.
They have Covid plan approved by the health department
Both Salmon and bread ( with Queso) were over done.
Octopus appetizer was excellent although for $12 it seems a bit overpriced.
I was expecting a unique Mexican fusion and my expectations were met! Delicious Mexican lollipop cocktail, savory octopus tostada, and ahi tuna chili appetizer. The two moles were lucious but lackluster as just dipping sauces. The final dish of two melted cheeses ended a meal que me gustó mucho!
Food was AMAZING! The service was a little lack luster, but the delicious food and wonderful cocktails made up for any minor inconvenience we experienced. We will definitely be back!
A great new place in Milwaukee. If you want an amazing experience, go here!
Amazing food and experience. If COVID wasn't a thing I'd be here very often.
We really wanted to love this place but it was just ok...
We ate on the patio, which was a fantastic setting! The food was outstanding and the service excellent! It was our second time in two weeks we were there and had great experiences both times!
We we're nervous about dining out, but LaDama made us feel totally comfortable. It was truly a special night out!
Oysters tasty, La Dama drink excellent, fondue bread and cheese awesome, ceviche was a miss, ahi tacos sublime, pork belly tacos better, steak tacos needed more flavor and stuffed poblano was fabulous! Oh yeah caramel flan 🍮 was incredible with collective blend coffee!
