Story Hill BKC 5100 W Bluemound Rd, Milwaukee American • $$

“Food and drinks were great, everything we had was 10/10, and service was incredible too. It was easy to book a reservation online, and our server was extremely knowledgeable about both the food and drink menus, and was able and willing to offer specific recommendations for us based on our requests/feedback. Parking was a little tough, but we did visit on the same night as a Brewers home game, and it still wasn’t terrible (no worse than anywhere downtown or Bay View or the East Side. Overall, it was a great experience and the price point was dead on - not “cheap” but certainly not overpriced; I’d come back any time.”

Carnevor 718 N Milwaukee St, Milwaukee Steak House • $$$$

“My friends and I stumbled upon this place while walking around in Milwaukee, and it blew our minds. We are from Houston and have some pretty good Indian restaurants here but were pleasantly surprised at how delicious and flavorful everything was at this place. The cauliflower appetizer is a must try - it is probably the best cauliflower dish I’ve ever had. We also had garlic naan, samosas, biryani chicken, and tandoori chicken and everything was delicious. Portions were huge. There were 4 of us and we still had leftovers. And the staff was so friendly and treated us like family. Was a great experience and is definitely a place I’d revisit if I am ever in Milwaukee again. Sadly we dug into the food so fast that I did not get a chance to take pictures!”

“My go to is usually a almond chai or Jolly Green Jenny, a single maple-syrup laced crepe and a side of tofu scramble. Together they satisfy all my sweet salty and savory cravings with a comforting hot beverage. It’s always civilized in there, everyone keeping their voices to a mellow decibel and the greenery all over in the living walls is over the top beautiful. In the summertime it’s gorgeous outside. Michael and his staff are always hospitable and polite and you feel like they’re family taking care of you. It’s a terrific little gem tucked away in a sweet spot. Go there for healthy ish eats but mostly go because it feeds your soul.”

“I received my first delivery today and all the salads looked great! I ate the Apple Pecan Chicken salad for lunch and all the food seemed fresh and tasted good. I was especially pleased with the spinach — nice and crunchy! The portion was ample; could have saved some for a snack later. The order was packaged well and all the salads were chilled, but not frozen. My only complaint was with the delivery driver, not FF. The driver didn’t knock or ring the doorbell to let me know that perishable food was on my porch (luckily, I happened to see it shortly after delivery).”

“I came in tonight and as soon as I was seated, another customer, a white woman, began to verbally abuse one of your servers (Xitlali) for no reason. The woman recorded the server with her cell phone as the server was quietly bussing tables, not bothering anybody and just doing her job. Then, when I told the woman to back off and leave the poor server alone, the woman started in with me, too. I just wanted you to know your servers were very pleasant and hard working and they did nothing whatsoever to deserve this abuse. I am a witness in case this woman tries to cause trouble, or make any false accusations about your employees. It makes me absolutely sick to see people abusing their waitresses like that.”

When I arrived, there was one other patron at the counter waiting for a To Go order, and one person working the grill. Another guy was working in the background but he was just prepping for the next day. The main server/cook was really friendly and we chatted a bit when he wasn't cooking. You could tell it was tough on him to be the only one on the shift and was trying to balance making my food with the food of other online and To Go orders. I had ordered a Big Webb Breakfast plate and I enjoyed it. I most enjoyed getting to chat with the server.”

Whenever I need a boost of nutrients in my life, I know where to go (but honestly, eating this way should probably be all of our everyday baselines). The Jain Dal and Turmeric Carrots especially stand out. Ruta’s bowls offer such a variety of flavors for a good price. I also love Ruta’s pace. You get to pick what you want as you order and your bowl is complete at time of payment. Perfect for both leisurely dine-in and quick on-the-go meals. If you haven’t been, do yourself a favor and go to Ruta’s. We could all use more of their cuisine in our lives. Ruta’s, I’m so thankful you exist in Milwaukee!”

“Bittercube doesn't serve food in the traditional sense. But their cocktails definitely nourish your senses. This may sound like another internet age exaggeration, but it's true! Bittercube Apothecary cuts through the jaded "been there, done that" with their menu and their friendly, knowledgeable, down-to-earth vibe. Highly recommended!”

“FISH FRY REVIEW - can't say much about the church or service, but the fish fry is great! Nice portions, great services, reasonable prices. We stop every time it's open - check website for dates and times”

“I'm rating 5 stars for potential! I walk by this cafe often when going to Bunzel's Market across the street. For more than a year, it always looks not operating yet even though the sign says open. My first suggestion is put a counter and chairs where the condiment table is blocking the window. It will look more inviting. The two times I went inside after seeing someone working there, a lot of things aren't available. There's a big espresso machine that looks never used. Will barista items ever be offered? The many picnic tables and laptop work zone also appear not used. Bunzel's is always swarming with people getting food and desserts but doesn't have anywhere to eat or serve fresh drinks...so working together there's no reason Shoshovi's cafe couldn't thrive. Just don't make the only things for sale be prepackaged stuff because people will just buy that at Bunzel's. So much potential for this cafe if they had real coffee, but I don't understand what the management is doing with it.”

Ardent 1751 N Farwell Ave, Milwaukee New American • $$$$

“We ordered Ardent's Lent special Friday only fish fry and at $30 a pop for either perch or blue gill we were understandably curious about whether it would prove worth the cost but because the restaurant always delivers the best in culinary quality we felt pretty confident. Let me just say once we got home and opened up our 'pizza sized delivery boxes' we were stunned ! Each contained mounds of perfectly crisped French fries delicately sprinkled with parsley & dill , 2 containers of creamy flavorful tartar sauce , 2 slices of yummy marble rye slathered in sweet butter, a generous serving of piquant coleslaw and ample serving of PURR-FECTLY breaded & fried fish fillets + 3 fresh lemon wedges to add a bit of zest. Seriously in a post COVID world where restaurant prices continue to rise and in many cases quality & quantity slips an utterly delicious dining experience like this deserves all the accolades we can muster! Congrats to Ardent's entire team for having the dedication & talent to put it forth . Only regret? That Lent doesn't lasted all year long!”

Sanford 1547 N Jackson St, Milwaukee New American • $$$$

“I was a special guest on a special occasion, and though surpisingly the restaurant wouldn't have been my first choice (because of the lack of spices), I appreciate every single moment of the food, presentation and our server's professionalism and kindness. The description says the decor is minimalist, and I argue that the food was too... And it was great to be exposed to this in this manner. We ordered the chef's menu which was a fantastical plate after plate served up for us. They seriously consider allergies and restrictions which is top-tier. Reserve hours out of your time for this gastronomocal experience and of course, getting lost in conversation with your date. Oddly, I remember getting a small cookie at the end--that was probably a piece that wasn't needed and changed the taste in my mouth a little. Perhaps a wrapped handmade candy to take away as a momento, or maybe I just need better willpower? Love this place, would return on a special occasion splurge.”

Odd Duck 939 S 2nd St, Milwaukee American • $$$

“First off, sat at the bar, service was phenomenal.Tried the oyster mushrooms, arab bread with dippings, pork schnitzel, and duck pasta. Overall mixed feelings. No single dish worked perfect imo, and nothing blew me away.The oyster mushrooms themselves were good, very very crispy, but they came with some olives, a bit of feta, and some olive oil. It was lacking. Needed more of a sauce, something with more substance than a drizzle of oil and the mashed olives.The pork schnitzel itself was really good as far as pork schnitzel go. However the sides did not fit the schnitzel.The pasta was just mid.The bread and pepper spread were delicious but i would rather some other spread instead of the pickled veggies and chickpeas.Drinks were good, skipped on desert because of main plates not being as good as expected.”

“My only regret was that I didnt live In Milwaukee (such that I could have a routine of coming every 6 weeks or so ) and that I didn't have an extra stomach to accommodate a meal of only beef empanadas with chimichurri sauce . But putting this aside , as soon as we walked into Cava, we knew we knew we were in store for a fabulous evening - greeted warmly by the owner, Anna , the incredible scents wafting thru the door , an attentive & friendly but not intrusive waiter, lively music , interesting pieces on the bar shelf ( a bull, a slide show of pics from Madrid and other places in Spain , the more you looked , the more you saw ) , intimate tables, a place to hang my purse, beautiful table settings with unique/interesting plates , glassware, utensils — easy, elegant sophistication . It's hard to speak in complete sentences about such a wonderful evening - the start with the aperitif of vodka, rosemary, lime , black pepper , and tbd ; a kickass martini , rose wine, the teaser to start of creamed corn with cheese , cream and a touch of heat ; a salad ; a quasi charcuterie board with sautéed mushrooms , a cheese dish with honey and lavender , high quality jamon , tomato jam , manchego cheese , bread , olives ; lamb chops , stuffed pepper with lamb ; paella with chicken and chorizo , beef empanadas; I'm forgetting other fabulous things ; bread pudding dessert ; omg !! Yes , we loved it ? . The service was superb , the food to die for , the atmosphere- so special ...”

First of all, Schlitz on tap ???? and one of the few places I know that serves Cusquena (extra delicious golden lager from Peru). The food is served quick after ordering, it's comes out nice and hot. The Schlitzwurst (Archie style) has a great crunch to the outside and delivers on flavor. The Archie burger on that potato bun, ????. Pure Happiness. The dude at the bar, Sam, was super cool, had the right answer for wearing an Inter Miami shirt ?, serving drinks, and was spinning some great tunes on vinyl. Almost wish this place was open later to keep the taps flowing. Definitely don't miss out on this great Milwaukee place!”
