We decided to have a nice nicoise salad here with some protein on it. Salmon, shrimp or chicken. We opted for one salmon (about 4 ozs.) and one with shrimp (they're a few but bigger ones). The salads are nicely prepared and with cherry like tomatoes, petite potato's, asparagus, olives, an egg and more. A lighter vinaigrette dressing coats it.... More

We'd been trying to find time to make the drive to Wauwatosa and visit La Reve. It took us a couple of years to actually make the time, but it was certainly worth it. What a great experience! First I want to mention something that is very hard to describe: There is an overall "culture" here that is rare in... More

We are at the start of working our way down the Wauwatosa Trip Advisor list with our neighbors (get to try places in our community while catching up with friends!) Le Reve Patisserie is listed as #1 or we may not have ever gone here-- that's the fun of following a list...! We all really enjoyed our meals-- our neighbors... More

Had a great time with our group, but felt like they were "put out" by having to serve our large table. Had a nice meal and a wonderful time catching up with old friends, but it was a bit pretentious for my liking. The pastries were amazing, though!

Good food, great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, simply amazing pastries. Le Reve is a special place. My husband love to come here for occasional lunches or dinners. I love to meet friends here, or simply stop by for a solo lunch and glass of proseco.

La Reve has such an interesting menu that you want to try everything at some point. That doesn't even include the fantastic desserts and the well stocked bar.

My wife and I stopped in for a meal with a friend and were blown away by the quality of food at this great restaurant. The French onion soup was delicious and the crepes were superb. We tried the French fries which were cooked and salted to perfection. Our waitress Amy was attentive and informative and made our evening one... More

I was recommended here by a former French resident and am very glad I took her advice. The cafe is well and appropriately decorated, the staff are friendly and attentive, and the baked goods are excellent. Croissants as good as I remember from Paris. I had the "French Breakfast" (which admittedly I should have ordered hot chocolate with for the... More

This was a 5 star dinner family event! The French Onion Soup was over the top excellent and the canard a la bourguignonne was as wonderful as any that I had in Paris. Kerry our server, was awesome. Lead us perfectly through a great dining experience. We will be back!

Delicious crostini de brie, prosciutto salad, and coq au riesling. Bartenders will help find a wine that you like - huge plus.
