We were staying at the Ambassador for the weekend, and ate at this restaurant. It was my son's graduation that weekend from Marquette and we loved that we could have a really enjoyable meal without driving downtown, parking and dealing with the crowds. Our party of 7 absolutely loved our meals. We really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and our service was wonderful!

Mother’s Day brunch. $45 pp. All food either cold or barely warm (reservation was at 10:15). Quality very low across the board. A tip jar at the carving station? On the plus side the table setting was lovely and the room bright with an open feeling yet very low noise. Service was good.

The food was exceptional, The filet was done perfectly. the service was great, our waiter was extremely friendly, and bantered with our group. The overall experience was top notch, and it's not easy these days to find a nice place, with great food, great prices, and great service. At least 1 of those categories usually suffers, bit not at The Fitz. I will definately be back!

This is our fourth time visiting over the last few years they've got away from having some extra items on the menu by the chef so the food turns out to be just kind of ordinary for example I ordered bacon but it was cool and not crisp I ordered eggs over easy were kind of hard around the edges but with that said the atmosphere is nice the waitresses are great and we do enjoy going there so we probably will return I hope they improve the menu it could do some updating with some special items from the shift chef'.

It was a great way way to have dinner with friends before a concert at Miller Park. We were hoping for a dinner menu, but we understood the need to do quick meals as many guests with reservations were headed to the same concert. Service was quick, friendly and accommodating! I ordered the short rib grilled cheese sandwich and it was yummy!!

Everything was just fine, but one crabby waitress which was not our server, seemed very angry when two small children joined our group and we needed to get two more seats. It was a birthday surprise and I didn't know they were coming. She made it seem like it was very difficult to figure this out and made them sit at another table far from us. On the other hand our server got us plates and forks that we used for a cake that we brought. That was very nice. Overall the place is very nice for brunch. good coffee.

The food and service were excellent. The 25% discount that we received because we were staying at the hotel made it even sweeter. We enjoyed it so much that we had lunch there the next day before heading home. That meal and service were also very good.

The food was great as well as the decor, however, the waiter seemed a bit disgusted when I used an email discount as well as the fact that we were only there to try the fish fry. We will come back and are hoping this server was just having a bad night.

The dining area is right out of the 1920s. We were seated immediately and were brought waters and our server showed up shortly to tell us the specials. The Brie and fig small plate was fantastic and the brussel sprout salad was great. My Scottish salmon was prepared excellently. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the gin rickey burger. Will definitely be back!

A good lunch was enjoyed by all in our group. The highlight entree was the short rib grilled cheese sandwich. Other sandwiches and a large salad were also very nicely prepared. The options for sides are very nice and we all chose something different, which we appreciated. Our server was very attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. Our only issue was that every space in the surface parking lot was filled with cars at noon (including the handicap accessibles) and the indoor parking structure was a bit of walk for a few with walking issues...because after a large snowfall the parking lot was quite slippery to say the least. We decided our next lunch date (and there definitely will be another) will take place during non-winter months.

We loved our time at The Fitz! The food was amazing, as was the service. The ambience is quiet and elegant, but could use dimmer lighting. Other than that, it was a perfect place to celebrate a birthday as a couple. We were staying in the hotel, which was just as lovely as the restaurant and it was nice to have access to such an elegant meal without leaving the hotel. Hotel guests receive 25% off at The Fitz, which was a very nice surprise. We will most definitely be back!

Very good food in an art deco setting. Adjacent to the Envoy bar, which serves meals as well, along with outstanding cocktails. Construction in the area, but still accessible. Female server in the restaurant somewhat aloof. The Ambassador Hotel provides a shuttle to downtown events.
