“It all adds up to perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

All of the parts add up to a perfect evening; at the Shorewood location there is a dining room for families, so mom and dad can have a more enjoyable meal, the drink menu is extensive, the food is amazing, and the staff most welcoming. Everyone will love it! And they appreciated that we were there for our anniversary.

“Great food and reasonable price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

No complaints at all for this east side gem. Wonderful drinks, a menu ranging from burgers and pizza to unique entrees. Have eaten several times and never disappointed. Sometimes there's a wait, but well worth it!

“Great food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

We were initially told it would be at least an hour wait for a table. Then the kind hostess asked if we wouldn’t mind sitting at a “high table” in the bar area. We agreed and were sat immediately. A very nice drink selection for both wines and beer was waiting on our table. Our drink orders were placed quickly and the drinks arrived soon after. Minor mix-up with the assignment of wines but all was good. We ordered the Charcuterie platter (mix of meat products with some cheese and relish sides). The pate’ was especially delicious, as was the pickled onions but the prosciutto was rather bland. Since my wife doesn’t like meatloaf, I usually order it when I’m out. I have no regrets about ordering it here. It was very flavorful and wrapped in bacon lying on a pile of mashed potatoes. Mmmm. It was also accompanied by roasted brussel sprouts which my wife ate since I’m not a big veggie fan. She said they were marvelous. The other entrees ordered by my wife and our 2 friends (who recommended this restaurant) were also wonderfully presented and delicious. We will probably be back.

“Inviting & Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

We showed up with friends at 6:30 on a Saturday evening and were fortunate enough to be seated immediately at a 4 top in the bar. The menu has some really interesting choices: our group's entrees ranged from meatloaf and steak to char and whitefish. We had an excellent charcuterie to start the meal. Service was very good and we weren't rushed. The décor features lots of wood and white tablecloths. Our server was friendly and efficient. Overall, a very nice meal at a place a little more upscale (and pricey) than most of its culinary neighbors.

“Excellent, local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

My sister, niece and I celebrated our mother's 90th birthday at this excellent, local bistro last Friday. The decor was clean and fresh, our server, Drew, was attentive, witty and knowledgeable, and all of our meals were wonderful! I will surely return on my next visit back to Milwaukee.
