Nestled in a park pavilion on a bluff, the restaurant’s location on Milwaukee’s East Side lends itself to stunning views of Lake Michigan. That, paired with the classic French fare from chef de cuisine John Raymond and his team, has won Lake Park Bistro a loyal customer base.
“The beauty of the restaurant is the view overlooking the bluff and the lake,” Ibar said. “That’s the No. 1 thing. And then you have the French classics. Very popular are bistro steak, oeuf mollet, (baked French) onion soup.”
With white tablecloths lining its tables, the restaurant offers high-quality “traditional service” and a relaxed environment, Ibar said.
In addition to being a lunch spot destination, Lake Park Bistro often draws diners for various special occasions, Ibar said.
“Birthdays, anniversaries, any occasion – it’s where you celebrate,” he said.
The dining area seats about 200. Parking is free and there is no dress code.
