We thoroughly enjoyed our experience having brunch for my birthday at Boerner. The staff was super friendly, we were seated immediately at a table with a lovely view of the gardens, ordered drinks and went to the buffet. The charming chef made us fabulous omelettes and several staff explained all the dishes (which were also beautifully labeled). The presentation at the buffet tables was just beautiful, with a bounty of food of every variety. We especially enjoyed the French toast (like no other!) and the Nutella Crepes, but everything was fresh and delicious. We can't think of a thing that needs improving other than that more people need to know about this place! Best brunch we've had in Milwaukee and a great value for the price.

Our family went to Christmas brunch at the botanical gardens Dec. 4. The service, food and music were outstanding! We had been there for Christmas brunch at least a dozen years in a row when Bartolotta ran it and were always happy with the experience, but the new operator Zilli is measurably better in our opinion. Seating is not as tight, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and the food was WAY above what one would expect even from a holiday brunch. The french toast, apple pie crepes, all of the salads and the beef short ribs were simply the best we have ever had! The omlets were second to none and the deserts were great. Considering that the adult price for this holiday brunch of $22.95 included mimosas and bloody marys in addition to coffee, juice and milk makes this the best brunch value we have ever had! We will definitely return to try their regular Sunday brunch!

OpenTable Diner (Milwaukee)·Dined on May 14, 2017This was for Mothers Day. The food was good. The service sucked. The waiter dropped off the bill right after we sat down, before we had even gotten food. When we did go up for food I saw him check to see if we had paid. We had gone back to get more food and they cleared our table of everything including half of my Bloody Mary. When we walked up with our plates they were shocked. They offered me another drink but I was rather upset by then and said no. I won't go back. I understand wanting to turn tables but this was terrible.Dining Occasion:Special OccasionWas this review useful to you?Yes·No·Reportfood5ambience3service1value3

Noneofyourbusiness (Milwaukee)·Dined on May 14, 2017Well I made a reservation for 3 and was sat at a small table for 2 that was shoved in a corner where the servers had to go around us every 5 minutes (or less). My son, seated in a highchair, was forced to be bumped into by these servers because they couldn't give us an appropriately sizes table even when j asked for the table I had reserved. Also the food was only to-do. NOT worth $40 a person.Dining Occasion:Special OccasionWas this review useful to you?Yes·No·Reportfood3ambience1service3value2
