It's been a long wait for a top notch white table cloth French restaurant to open in the western Milwaukee suburbs, but Cafe Grace is finally here. We visited with friends on a Saturday evening and were pleased with the diversity of the menu and high quality of the food. Open only a few weeks, there were a few hiccups during the evening, but these are sure to disappear over time. We enjoyed a couple excellent apps: chicken pate and a mixed selection of cheeses. Our entrees were beautifully presented and the accompanying sauces were particularly flavorful. Meals included rotisserie Strauss veal, slowed cooked duck leg, and Coquilles St. Jacques among others. All were perfectly cooked, presented beautifully, and quickly devoured. They were followed by a selection of wonderful desserts including profiteroles, lemon tarts and chocolate gateau. Service was attentive and prompt. Overall it was a good night, with a few minor blemishes that are sure to be addressed. Without window shades or curtains, patrons facing to the west are blinded by the setting sun on clear evenings. Background music is loud enough that conversation can be difficult at times. Our cheese plate app allowed for a choice of 3 cheeses out of a list of several selections, but only 4 were actually available. Our generous chicken pate app tasted great, but we were provided just 4 or 5 small, fragile, 'holey' crostini with the pate. It was disturbing watching an asst. server lean over the tray of entrees waiting to be presented to us, to place a used bread basket on the other side of the tray, possibly dropping all manner of things onto our food. That said, this is a fine, exciting restaurant presenting wonderful food that I'm sure we'll visit again and again.

The experience we had here was amazing. The service and food was excellent. We tried several dishes and all were great. We had a visit from chef Kaitlin and she helped us with our choices. Definitely will visit again.

We dined here recently as a group of 7. Everything was outstanding. I had swordfish and it was perfectly cooked, with delicious vegetables. Our server, Lydia, was friendly and attentive but unobtrusive, making for a very enjoyable experience. I am very happy to have this high-quality French restaurant so close to home, we will definitely be back!

A casual updated version of Lake Park Bistro with outstanding service and great service. A lot of the service team came from other Bartolotta's so they are out of the gate quickly with polished service standards. Try any of the slow braised dishes. Wow. So good.
