This has always been one of our favorite places to dine. That opinion was cemented once again. Due to the arrival of spring in Milwaukee(at long last!), we were able to sit out on the patio. What a treat. The beef Wellington was superb, the...More

Went here for my husband's birthday. He had beef wellington, I had a stuffed chicken breast with gnocchi and our daughter had the scallops. We loved everything. Great service and charming atmosphere made for a delightful night.

During a romantic weekend getaway in Milwaukee (yes, it can indeed be a romantic destination!), my husband and I were searching for a memorable anniversary meal. Sadly, we learned that too many top restaurants are closed on Sunday. Happily, we learned that Trip Advisor's #20...More

The Crazy Shrimp is simply crazy good. Also, the Endive Salad and Pork Bellies. As others have said, the quarters are a bit tight but that seems to add to the intimate feel. Wonderful experience.
