Stopped in for dinner and beers. The waiter was helpful in negotiating the beer menu with helpful comments on the lowland brewed Belgians, I really liked three of these beers, the wit, dubbel, and Xmas ale. Decent beer list mix of Belgians and US micros.

Great place for a meal. The atmosphere is nice with great outdoor area. Service is usually good. Beer selection and prices are not a strong suit. Same as the other Lowlands restaurants. Go for the food, not for the beer selection

Visited w/theisti for late light lunch and a beer. Selection was solid - belgian-focused with a few local gems. Food was acceptable - I tried a couple of timís mussels and had the tacos. Tacos were decent, though Iím a taco snob. Interior was warm, cozy, well-thought out if a little small. Being located directly across the pedestrian underpass from Lakefront Brewery is a plus. Would visit again, would like to see how the rest of the menu goes, it looked great.

Visited mid-afternoon on a Thursday. Unique building, with an interior that has a bunch of character. Smallish bar area up front, "cafe" table seating in the back. I was there on a crap weather day, so didnít see the outdoor seating, which looked like it would be good. Good jazz was playing at the right volume in the bar. Tap selection is Belgian focused, beer list the same - nothing rare or limited here, but all around solid. Service was great, very attentive and knowledgeable. I had the mussels, which were way over-spiced - which was probably good because the mussels did not taste real fresh. Overall, solid spot to hit before or after the Lakefront tour.

Food was Ok, Beer was good, but not a very good selection. Mostly a wine place. WAY WAY WAY overpriced. Worst prices in Milwaukee

Trocadero! This place is in the midst of a great revival. The food is more fresh and the flavor profiles, while changing, are getting better. Their brunch is still the place to be on Saturday and Sunday, but expect a wait that is well worth the time. Live Jazz on Thursdays helps enhance the ambience (They even offer free limo service with complimentary champagne to Jazz in the Park). Wine Loverís Wednesday is another great attraction and the Mojitoís on Mojito Monday make the outdoor seating even more pleasureable. All in all, it is great to see this place taking some suggestion and moving forward. It is obvious that the staff, management and owners have gotten fully involved again and are making great strides! Keep up the great work! NOW, the beer - Their selection is wonderful and they just enhanced their bottle beer selection. Now, while I have not tasted them al, I am going to make sure I do that soon enough!

Had a good friend of mine who was a head chef there a couple years ago. Then, it was fantastic. However, since itís taken a nose dive into oblivion. Service is awful as well as its recent renditions of its culinary attempts. However, the beer selection is admirably done with some sort of attempt being there. Expect prices to be on the high side as youíre paying a bit for a trendy scene with its outdoor patio area being a premium. All in all, good ambience, decent beer selection, prices out of sort in regards to the whole package, but worth a stop during lunch to make up your own mind.

A great French influenced Milwaukee restaurant. Great for Sunday brunch or if you just want a drink. Many beers (foreign and domestic micros), wines from around the world and Martinis. Awesome cheese selection and great coffee!

I love Trocadero. Like a few other Milwaukee restaurants, they usually carry a Lakefront draft not available in bottles. Iíve mostly been here for brunch, which is outstanding (get a coffee, youíll get a little square of Valrhona Ghana chocolate). And I think my brunch favorite is the Mrs. Crock, but I donít recall. In looking at the website they appear to have a lot of cheeses too. And, late night tapas is also a fun time to stop in. The patio is open year-round, and all day and night. Winter is unique because they button off the openings between the roof and wall and light up the butane heat lamps. Great place.

This is a great place to stop after touring Lakefront Brewery
, which in itself is a must when visiting Milwaukee. Itís a short but pleasant walk between the two across the Milwaukee River via the marsupial bridge under Holton Street.
We arrived at the restaurant smack-dab between Brunch and Dinner. In this two-hour gap (3-5 p.m.), there is a void of food service but there are cheese and dessert plates which can be enjoyed. We opted for a tray of Gruyere and 4-year-old Cheddar which were terrific and nice, respectively.
Tap selection was lacking (Bass, Guinness, Newcastle, Hacker Pschorr, Fat Abbey, Kronenbourg 1664, Lakefront Wit and Trumer Pils), but quality bottles included Chimay, Delerium, Duvel, Fischer, La Choulette and (of course) Lakefront.
Service was attentive, atmosphere held a touch of France that was quaint without being hokey, and soft music was relaxing with smooth Jazz a la Eartha Kitt and the like.
Trocadero was recommended by RAYBOY01
, who also recommended the Bloody Marys. I watched a few get poured and they looked awesome, but I had a long drive back to Chicago so sadly couldnít indulge.
