Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro was a fantastic experience.
Not only was the food very enjoyable, but our waiter Greg was outstanding. The French Onion Soup was wonderful as well as the sandwich I ordered for lunch. I would also recommend the Creme Brule for dessert.
To sum up our visit: Food- fantastic. Service- fantatstic. View- fantastic. Price- fantastic.

Lake Park Bistro has great views and has done a relatively good job updating the structure that contains the restaurant. However, their translation of French cuisine is further evidence of Bartolotta's assembly line approach to their restaurants, using similar recipes and sources despite advertising specialization in culinary regions. LPB is Bartolotta's French adaptation of their menu, which is akin to saying Lincoln is Ford's adaptation to luxury driving. Our dinners included French Onion soup and seared scallops as appetizers. The former was above average, allowing the cheese to dominate the flavor, the latter was no better or worse in taste than we've had at 3 star restaurants. Main courses were steak and halibut, both of which were forgettable. The service is ""French"" in the fact that there is an aire to the wait staff, which is suprising in a city like Milwaukee. As opposed to true European cuisine, Bartolotta's takes the American approach; simply dressing up mediocre offerings by overpricing and cruise-line grade presentation. Do yourself a favor on this one and skip it; attend one of Milwaukee's other real fine restaurants (none of them Bartolotta's) and take a trip down to Alterra on Lincoln Memorial Drive to have a coffee on the lake. You'll have a much better culinary experience, a much better taste of Milwaukee and a few more dollars in your pocket book.

the food here is positively brilliant and exceeded our expectations - which is rare! we had great service as well. the escargot was absolutely perfect, and the only complaint about the charcuterie plate was how fast 4 of us went through it. the beet salad was refreshing and delicious. the steak frites was perfect - the meat was tender, seasoned and cooked well, with a perfect red wine buerre sauce. there were no complaints at our table (my husband was thrilled with the asparagus salad, and the other entrees - ribeye, halibut, and duck - were all devoured with praise). absolutely stunning! we will be back soon.

Several fine dining establishments have opened in Milwaukee over the last several years. However, my favorite is still Lake Park Bistro. I take all my out-of-town guests for their Sunday brunch. On a perfect sunny day, the view is to die for. Their food and the service is outstanding.

I went to Lake Park Bistro for the first time on Sunday, October 15th. I was impressed from the moment I walked in. The place was very comfortable and homey. The staff was quite friendly and accomodating. Prices are a little higher then I would normally pay but the service and quality well make up for that. I ordered the Eggs Benedict and it was the best I have ever had. The appetizer selection and desert options complimented my entree very well. With the location and wonderful view of Lake Michigan I would highly recommend this location.
