We gathered our family (9 people) at Kilowatt for a birthday dinner. From the first hello, the hostess, Laura, introduced herself and was completely aware of our reservation and kindly brought us to our table, Mario and his assistant waiters met our every need, were informative and responsive!

Went between two graduation ceremonies. They did a good job getting the food to the table fast Very disappointed when we explained one of our party had a life threatening food allergy. When we asked about ingredients we were told each time. I think that should work That made us very weary. We had to request each time that she... More

The Kil@Wat is directly across the street from the Todd Wehr theater and located on the 2nd floor of the InterContinental. Our waitress was very attentive and checked on us frequently. We were there for a Saturday brunch and the restaurant was fairly empty. The food was excellent. The presentation of the food was appetizing and appealing. Each person in... More

This was one of the best burgers I have ever eaten, and they also have a mean beer cheese soup. They make the bun on site, amazing sauce. GOOD GOOD GOOD...I was here for a week and went back a few times. Great service. Did not do dinner here, because the area has way too many options...

Based on a very positive experience with Kil@wat 's Mother's day brunch last year, we decided to have Easter brunch here again. First of all, thanks to everyone who was working that day so we could go out to eat. We had a pretty large group and were seated right next to the swinging kitchen doors and far from the... More

For the reviews that we read, we honestly expected more. The service was average. Our waiter was polite, but not very attentive. We had to ask for our water glasses to be filled (after being empty for quite some time), and my husband was halfway through his steak before he got a steak knife. For the restaurant only being about... More

We come downtown Milwaukee for the Theater on a regular basis. This has to be our favorite place to eat. Usually get a small plate selection but we have enjoyed many selections on the menu. And the menu changes, always good. Convenient for the theater.

We were staying in downtown Milwaukee at a different hotel and decided to go here for breakfast. Everything was Great! We started with the muffins which were delicious. I had the omelet with everything, no charge for additional fillings. My wife had the oatmeal brulee which she thoroughly enjoyed. When we have the chance we will certainly return.

Such an odd experience. When I entered the restaurant, I was greeted by the hostess and she asked for my last name. I found it odd, but complied. I was promptly seated. I believe my waitress was training someone, as she was flanked by someone in matching attire. The food was good....nothing outstanding, just typical hotel breakfast. Here's where I... More
