Description: Serving authentic, rustic French cuisine in a bustling bistro setting, the restaurant features a menu that ranges from traditional to more modern and a chef's menu that changes with the seasons. The view of Lake Michigan from the two lake rooms in the Bistro is unrivaled by any other restaurant in the city. Plenty of free parking and a gorgeous park setting make Lake Park Bistro an appealing choice for any dining occasion. Lunch is served Monday through Friday, with guests able to choose from an a la carte menu or from the Menu d'Affaire, which offers a 2-course lunch for $19 and a 3-course lunch for $22. Sunday brunch is among the best in the Midwest, featuring three courses with champagne or a mimosa. Dinner is served nightly, and special events like wine dinners and the annual Black Truffle Dinner are highlights for guests and staff alike.

Dined alone at the bar on a recent business trip. From the bread thru the dessert, this restaurant has some of the finest classic french food you will find in the USA.

lovely location and very welcoming service staff but that's where it mostly ended. Waiter could not get wines out on time for pris fixe menu (like delivering half way through entree), lamb chop was cut razor thin (into 3 pieces 1/4" thick) so why ask how you would like it cooked? It was tough (even from their highly touted source) and had gristle! Scallops were excellent as looked the fois gras and the duck breast. I passed on dessert to enjoy my cheese plate and to accommodate the poor service and delivery they gave me more dessert! (guess they have a standard protocol not subject to guest preferences!) And to top it off when the bill came for credit card approval the machine was down so we completed a paper form with name, credit card number, etc! (have they heard of the many other ways to process credit card payments?) I just hope some staff member is not jetting off to Hawaii on my AmEx 6 months from now!

This is absolutely the best restaurant in Milwaukee and our favorite in the Bartolotta chain. Consistently excellent food and service, the kind of place we don't worry about recommending or taking out-of-town visitors to - never a disappointment. Brunch menu is outstanding.

Great view, great customer service and everyone had something different for lunch all wonderful. They also give you very large portions for lunch so go hungry. Very French and fresh - great variety. Loved the Chocolate Mousse had mint in it served with a mint gelato.

The Bistro is of course a lovely place to visit; food & service is always excellent.But I enjoy lunch there the most. More relaxed; and you can really enjoy the wonderful lake view.
