Liz went above and beyond for me in a very challenging time. I’ve been a loyal customer for years, but will go out of my way to be back at first chance.

Kudos to a thoughtful and accommodating manager.

The Knick is our "go to" downtown dinner spot. We are rarely disappointed. There are, occasional high traffic instances where the kitchen will fall uncomfortably behind with 30-40 minute waits. These nights can be frustrating, but 95% of the time we can count on exceptional service, great food at a reasonable price and reasonable wait times on the kitchen. I would happily recommend the Knick to others, but I kind of want to keep it to myself

We ate early and the place really got noisy and crowded by 7:30 pm. The food was good and reasonably priced. I am glad we were not too close to the bar, and could carry on a conversation. Personally I prefer a quieter setting, but people really seemed to like the ambiance.

We met up with 2 of my cousin's to catch up. We were so involved in conversation that I didn't pay close attention to the food aspect except to say it all tasted good, and the service was good.

Food was fresh, delicious and plentiful, and the staff, was super friendly! Reservations are recommended, but they were able to seat us right away on a busy Friday evening before a Bucks game!
Sunday brunch and Friday evening visit won’t be our last! When visiting Milwaukee-Definitely give the Knick a try, It won’t disappoint!

Delightful breakfast experience ! After an early morning art museum visit this restaurant gem is a short and pleasant walk away. Meals prepared to perfection, delivered by thoughtful servers, quiet ambiance, healthy portions and, delicious food. Breakfast potatoes (real!) crispy brown, eggs fully cooked, plated well and seasoned to perfection. Definitely will rerun for more.

My son’s 18th birthday, also joined by my daughter and her boyfriend who both attend Marquette University. The Knick is a long-time family favorite, as it is always excellent in every way. Brunch menu has something for everyone. Server was upbeat and helpful. Food was excellent quality, nice portions. and really a good value. Ambience is great as always. Just a great experience for a special occasion or an everyday meal.

The Cafe is elegant yet relaxed enough that on the coldest day of the new year people were at ease with heavy-duty gear, jeans, etc. The Brunch menu is not extensive but carefully curated. The salmon omelette ($14) was excellent. Service on a busy Sunday was outstanding. I made an online reservation and recommend that.

Our reservation was for 7 pm. We arrived just a bit early and seated promptly. We had some friends join us just for a drink so the host asked if we could move to a larger table in the bar area, which was fine. But then it seemed they forgot about us. Took almost 30 minutes to get our drinks, another 15 before they took our dinner order. Finally had our dinner served about 90 minutes after our arrival. After my husband went to search for someone to serve us they seemed to do much better in terms of checking on us and getting drink orders (more friends joined us later in the evening). But it was a bit odd how long it took initially. Otherwise a fun evening.

The ambience here is fantastic! It was happy hour time frame so a lot of people and noisey, but annoying. Our waitress was nice and attentive. Its very dark at the tables and hard to see the menus. I had to use the light on my phone. I would reccomend a candle of sort on the tables. The food was really good. My mom had the pork chop it was very tender. The only negative thing about it, is that it comes with s cherry glaze, which IS excellent, however, it also is over the potatoes and green beans etc etc. I had the herb chicken. Excellent. We also had the Creme Brulee, yum! Looking forward to dining here again. So many more things to try. Almost forgot, the brussel sprouts are a MUST have try!

Our server was excellent! The food was very good. The only critique is that there was too much butter on the scallops dinner that took away from the flavor of the scallops. Everything else was very good.

The food at the Knick is always very good. I enjoyed the crab hash dish. The toast was excellent. Coffee is also very good. Hubby had the polish sausage and eggs and liked it. Generous serving of meat too. Nice cosy place. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. I’ve only eaten breakfast here, but plan to try it for dinner sometime.

This is our go-to spot for dining. Versatile menu. Great service. Love the ambience. Had the best booth in the house for the first time. That was great. Lovely decorations displayed for the holidays. All of our entrees were very good. And so were the salads and soup of the day.

Food was good with nice variety of offerings. Moderately priced especially for the portions which were pretty big. It is pretty noisy if you’re looking for quiet intimate setting and not wanting to talk loud and be able to hear. Great happy hour with good prices on variety of drinks and appetizers. Will go back.

I've never had a complaint before. As always the food and the service were superb. But I guess I haven't been there since they covered the outdoor eating area and it was very dark in the restaurant. I suggested they turn up the lights and they explained that covering the outdoor eating area had made the restaurant much darker but they didn't turn up the lights.
