This little cozy restaurant has a great atmosphere, friendly staff and food. While I cannot give bad reviews base on my lifestyle I just give 4 out of 5 due to a small mistake in the food but I was extremely surprise that was corrected immediately. Drinks are great too, my friends and I enjoyed the place so much we... More

The restaurant was packed...Saturday night. The energy was vibrant and the food smelled amazing as soon as you walked in the door! We sat outside on the back patio, very comfortable and relaxing. Pauly was our server, very attentive, friendly, and knowledgable. We had the empanadas, artichokes, and asparagus. For entrees our party had the veal special, halibut, hanger steak,... More

We love this restaurant! Especially when the patio seating is available. We've been here many time and the food is usually fantastic. The last time we went, I had the special and I was disappointed with it but we'll definitely go back again. The flat iron steak is awesome. The downside is it is very noisy and the tables are...

I was looking for a we restaurant for my husband and I to try the night before we flew out for our anniversary trip to Mexico and this place exceeded all of our expectations. On a Thursday evening there was only room at the bar which ended up being a great experience as we watched two chefs prepare amazing meals... More

The scallop dinner was very tasty along with the stuffed chicken breast & duck dish!!!! This is great place to enjoy a relaxing dinner for couples or friends. EXCELLENT both times! We... More

It's tough to impress me, but this restaurant did. They take reservations and street parking was available on the Friday night we visited. This used to be an old feed store. I loved the atmosphere, with small cozy rooms and a beautiful patio area. The kitchen is to the right, as you enter the door. Are they really cooking in... More

This place had great food and good service. Limited menu which I liked. Ask of the offerings looked good. I had shrimp and they were in a spicy brown sauce. App of stuffed dates was tasty. Good but not great wine list. It's out of downtown but we'll worth the uber fare.

This was my first dining experience in Milwaukee and was impressive. Everyone has a kale salad on their menu these days, this one is the best I've had. Braised pork belly app, can't go wrong with that! Finished with the diver scallops. Scallops were good, very fresh, but the pesto risotto had a bit too much cracked peppercorn (and I... More

This restaurant was unexpected, yet completely lovely and charming to the taste buds. Quaint and small, with excellent service and exquisite food. A bottle of wine, oysters, delightful seafood entree, lovely sides, and finished with above par dessert. A place I will most definitely visit again.

Crazy Water always rates high with Trip Advisor. I wanted to check it out. My wife and I were able to walk in and get a table at 6pm on a Saturday night without reservations. We were not disappointed. We both ordered fish entrees. We split a salad and had drinks. Crazy Water is small and homey. Maybe 16-20 tables.... More
