Beautiful restaurant inside the park and with a magnificent view of lake michigan is the perfect place for a french menu. Tried the filet mignon and loved it but my favourite was the saumon. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Recomended for a formal dinner in milwaukee.

I was here recently with my mother and daughter for what I thought would be a special treat. The side of mushrooms was way over cooked and drowned in butter and salt. The French green beans received the same treatment--tired, over cooked and alarmingly salty....More

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.
