Bistro 333

Dined on March 30, 2016

Felt a bit non private as the Bistro is lobby/off lobby. More casual than expected with limited lunch type menu. Good spot for quick bite before the theater. Probably wouldn't select the Bistro for dinner or more formal event.

Good experience

Dined on February 20, 2016

My party went to Bistro 333 as it is one of the few restaurants located near the Milwaukee Theatre, which we were going to for a performance that afternoon. It was not very full, which is probably expected on a Saturday afternoon in a hotel that just had breakfast available for the guests. I will probably return to the restaurant, especially due to its location. The food was pretty good as well as the service.

Dined on January 24, 2016

It's not really a restaurant, it's a hotel lobby in which they serve food. The food is fine, but over priced for what it is (which just general hotel food). There is nothing special, interesting or unique about this place and it really shouldn't be dined in by anyone except people who need the convenience of it being in their hotel. They also don't validate parking so to park for an hour and fifteen minutes cost $10.

The food was exquisite. The service was lacking.

Dined on November 26, 2015

We were seated promptly but not greeted by waitstaff until an awkwardly long period. When greeted, we were not told about drink options (price, availability) and simply made fundamental choices. Plates were not cleared quickly. We had to bus our own dishes at one point and got our own water due to lack of attentiveness. The food was well done, but for $45 a head, the staff needed to be much more attentive. I would not recommend the experience for a holiday.

Menu is limited. Too many sandwich items. Good was okay. They did not anticipate a rush of people coming in between 5-7 from the arena across the street. And why not? The only choice across the street was brats or pizza! Of course people would come to the hotel for dinner. The kitchen could not keep up. However, the servers, who were at the mercy of the kitchen, tried to be as pleasant and efficient as the situation would allow. We had breakfast there the next morning. The buffet was very nice and fairly priced.

Could Be Better

Dined on June 11, 2014

Being a pretty good cook myself, I have a tough time paying good money for items that I can make better at home. That sums up my experience at Bistro 333. We went for downtown dining week to try a place that we have not been to before. I am not sure if we will go back since I was not impressed by the food. The service was ok, nothing special and the same goes for the ambience.

Not great service, so-so food

vip
Dined on June 11, 2014

We came here for dinner during downtown dining week because it offered gluten free options. I ordered off the downtown dining 3 course menu, and got the salad, the bruschetta chicken, and strawberry ice cream with balsamic drizzle. Our waiter barely waited on us, and it wasn't particularly busy, either. I had questions about the menu before ordering, and although the waiter eventually said he would go check for me, he first stated that he didn't know because he usually works the breakfast shift. My salad was really good. The chicken was really dry, and the portion was small, including the dessert. It was a small scoop. The dinner was valued at $55, but was $35 that night. It really wasn't worth $35, either. Plenty of other places to eat.

Too Expensive for Average Food

Dined on June 9, 2014

I thought the menu looked great, but we were very unimpressed with the food. We felt like we were eating cafeteria food, but with a high price tag. The atmosphere and decorations were ok, nothing special. If I were traveling and wasn't expecting much out of a meal, this place was OK for that. However I would never recommend this place to anyone. There are plenty of other restaurants in the area that serve good food. This food was bland and I feel I could have prepared a much better meal myself at home.

Average Lunch Dining

Dined on June 9, 2014

The food was average, I would not dine on a regular, I ordered the pull pork, it was OK, but the flavor was not that good. It was too pricey for the meal for downtown dining week, should have cost less than 10 bucks for lunch.

Dined on June 8, 2014

We felt rushed. We ordered soup which was cold. We sent it back and asked for it to be reheated. Before the soup was returned to us, the entree arrived. We were still eating our entree, and our dessert was Being served! This was my first time eating at this restaurant and it will be my last.

Not worth the $$

Dined on June 8, 2014

We visited this restaurant for downtown dining week but will not be going back. The service was good but the food was not worth the money, even for the discounted price during downtown dining. It's inside the Hyatt hotel and the only separation between our seats and the lobby was a thin curtain. Overall the restaurant was just okay. There are many other places that I would rather go for the money.

Literally 20 minutes after being seated we finally got water. Food was clearly served after being under a heat lamp. Awful service. Subpar food. Seated in a random corner instead of out in the open dining area. Don't waste your money.

Dined on June 6, 2014

Due t an event at nearby Bradley Center, parking at the hotel (Bistro 333 is in the hotel) was $15.00. We asked the restaurant maitre d' to waive or call the parking staff since we would be done and gone before the event was even scheduled to start. He said he would, but then not only did he not try to do anything, he totally ignored us the rest of the evening, bypassing our table when he was making rounds checking everyone's satisfaction. When we asked for leftover steak entrees to be wrapped, the server brought our desserts wrapped along with and the check, seemingly trying to rush us out. We had to send her back to the kitchen to wrap the leftover steak, and to bring us plates so that we could eat the desserts at our seats.

Downtown Dining Week

Dined on June 6, 2014

Bistro 333 presented by far the most inviting menu as evidenced by the crowd we met at lunch. Everything our party of two sampled was very good to excellent. My husband loved the cheese curds and, although he kept saying he couldn't finish them, he did. I felt the same about the homemade chips. I don't even eat chips and I kept going back for one more. My ham and Harvati on a pretzel roll was delicious as was my husband's cheesecake. The only less than perfects were the chocolate cake = a little dry and the pulled pork = a little sauce on the side needed. Because of the crowd it was a bit noisy but the service was excellent and attentive. A truly enjoyable experience.

Downtown Dining

High priced downtown dining menu which I anticipated as a very nice meal/atmosphere. Waitress was friendly but we didn't have silverware and when she handed us our knives, it was blade forward. Definitely kept serving us over the table and in front of people. Ordered our steak medium well and it came with no pink whatsoever. The pizza appetizer was great, though, as was the cheesecake.

Mother was not happy

Dined on May 11, 2014

I made a reservation through Open Table for Mother's Day brunch. They had nothing special for Mother's Day even though it was advertised as a Mother's Day brunch on their website. One could find this type of food at any George Webb's restaurant. It was a buffet style for $18 a person, for eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes (oily and cold), oatmeal, various cereals, and fruit. This type of meal could have been found for $12 elsewhere. Disappointing and I will not return.

Stay Away from Bistro 333-Breakfast

Dined on May 11, 2014

The wait-staff was extremely good: efficient, attentive, friendly, and responsive. The food was a disaster: the Huevos Rancheros was "not edible" according to the guest who ordered it. The tortillas were stiff, but not crispy, couldn't be cut with a knife. There was way too much cumin and the salsa was bad. The French toast was undercooked. The roasted fruit was blah. Both entres were overpriced for the quality and even the presentation. We would have been better off having breakfast almost anywhere else. We will never go back there.

Disappointing

Dined on June 13, 2013

I went to Bistro 333 with my daughter for Milwaukee Downtown Dining Week. We chose items off the fixed menu. The pizza appetizer was huge, too big for a first course, but flavor was fine. My soup was pretty good. The pasta & mushroom main dish was very disappointing, the noodles were a bit dry, and it didn't have enough sauce. The salmon was ok. The desserts were also underwhelming. I didn't even finish my gelato. I like the bar at this place, but won't eat there again.

Dined on June 13, 2013

The meal I selected from the Downtown Dining week dinner menu was very good. It had an excellet array of flavors and textures, and was well prepared and presented. A decent wine menu allowed for a proper pairing. Our server was very good, and the minor misses could be easily remedied. Regarding the on-site parking, I expected my parking to be validated after this price point for three adults. I was disappointed with the responses: we seem to be all out of parking passes; can't seem to find any more; it's only good for two hours. Local restaurants of simliar stature offer valet parking at half the price or less. I will recommend Bistro 333 to colleagues with similar interests and standards, but encourage them to park on the street.

Meh for Downtown Dining

Dined on June 12, 2013

The food was fine. It wasn't anything special that I can't find for cheaper in the same area. The $30 DD menu wasn't too much of a deal considering the same meal cost $40 on the menu. We came in for DD and ended up ordering off the menu, and the price, including our drinks, ended up being around $60 for the both of us. The menu wasn't anything terribly special either. It was ok, but there wasn't anything that sounded really good. Our waitress had to stop by 3 times before we were finally able to decide. The food itself was good, but not great. It definitely wasn't bad. I would recommend offering a $20 DD menu to make it worth trying again.

Dined on June 11, 2013

I went for downtown dining week, and to be honest, I was not impressed at all. The beer cheese soup was delicious but you didn't get very much. The salmon I had was very dry and I did not like the sauce that was top. The cupcake was not good at all!!! It was not moist at all and the frosting was very hard... :( I was told they came from Milwaukee Cupcake Company who I have had before, and their cupcakes never taste like that! Overall, not impressed, which was disappointing because I was looking forward to eating here because the menu looked good.

Bistro 333-Downtown Dining Week

Dined on June 11, 2013

My boyfriend and I had lunch here, and the experience was good. The overall value of our lunch for the downtown dining price was excellent. $10 for a cup of soup, a sandwich, and a piece of cheesecake. As is typical during downtown dining week, the staff was overwhelmed. We sat for a good five minutes before our server even acknowledged as she greeted a table that was sat after us, before us. I ordered the grilled cheese sandwich with no tomatoes, which came out with tomatoes. I was brought the right order very quickly, though. Overall I think this is a great spot, but I would it was lacking in service due to how busy it was. Also do not park in the parking structure unless you absolutely have to as it was $10 for one hour!

Typical, average, boring

Dined on June 10, 2013

There is nothing extraordinary about this restaurant. The food was mediocre. The waiter was never around when we actually needed him, but tried to rush us through at the beginning (in an empty restaurant.) The table across from us had to snag another waitress to solve the problems with their orders. The beer cheese soup was salty. There was not enough time given between courses. All rookie mistakes and overall not worth the price. (But they probably get away with it all because they are a hotel restaurant and people are too scared of Milwaukee to risk going outside to go anywhere else.)

Seemed overrated

Dined on June 8, 2013

We'd been looking forward to trying Bistro 333 based on samples of their food that we'd had at several local tasting events. The appetizer we had (Margherita pizza) was good, but would have been much better with a far thinner crust. The entrees we had (sirloin filet) were ok, but I've had better steaks elsewhere for less money. Our server, while pleasant, seemed to have forgotten about our table and we had to hunt him down to both get our check and then to get him to come back and run the credit card. We also had to flag down random passing staff to get our water refilled. All in all, it was ok, but I doubt we will be making a point to go back.

Won't be going back.

Dined on June 8, 2013

Food was good but the service was some of the worst I've ever experienced. When the server came with the food, our friend was brought a salmon meal when she ordered a steak. After the server stopped by 3 more times over the course of 15 minutes, we asked why at least four or five other tables around us were receiving steak dinners and we hadn't received ours. The server told us that the kitchen had to complete the orders in which they were received. Basically telling us the customer, the rest of the resturant would see their food first and then they would fix their mistake. After arguing with the manager, our missing meal arrived just as the deserts arrived at the table. We would never recommend this place or ever go back again.
