Specializing in French cuisine, Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro opened in 1996 and has been at the top of the special occasion list ever since. Brass accents, reproductions of French prints and four-star service all add to the overwhelming romanticism of this French-inspired fine dining restaurant.

Located in Milwaukee County's Lake Park -- in the pavilion -- the restaurant conjures up visions of Parisian dining and romantic French film. It is, quite possibly, the perfect place for a date, proposal or anniversary. A full wall of glass windows provides a view of the lake from nearly every seat in the house.

With low-level lighting and quiet, secluded ambience, Lake Park Bistro graciously welcomes romantic couples for a memorable meal. editors' choice: Bacchus
