Fantastic french-style cuisine. Service was impeccable. The food was outstanding. Rhubarb Tonic (cocktail) was great. Everything we ate was excellent. Definitely a place to get a reservation for a very nice night out as a couple or with friends.

Definitely fit for foodies but anyone desiring an elegant location and great food will appreciate this restaurant. This place could easily be in New York or Philadelphia (the 2 cities where we eat most). If I ever had a reason to go back to Milwaukee,...More

I agree with all the responses. It's somewhat hard to see. It is located on the SW corner. Looks a bit like a small apartment bldg from the outside. Pull up front and begin your experience with the valet.
