Best Date Night Restaurants in Milwaukee

Door Co Distillery Date

Looking for a spot for the perfect Milwaukee for a date night? I’ve put together some of my favorite spots to enjoy a night out with your s/o.

Storyhill BKC

This cozy spot is in the Storyhill neighborhood of Milwaukee (just north of Miller Park). They serve small plates for dinner, a great brunch on the weekends, and I have never had a thing on their menu that I didn’t like. No reservation? Use the Yelp app to get added to their waitlist, or scope out a spot at the bar; if you sit near the end, you can watch all of the dishes being prepared!

Harbor House

In the mood for seafood with a view? Harbor House has a great menu and is right on Milwaukee’s lakefront!


For a unique/upscale experience, try the tasting menu at Ardent. You will not be disappointed!

Odd Duck

I know I’ve talked about Odd Duck on the blog before, but it is one of my favorite spots for date night. They have an ever changing small plates menu and great cocktails! It’s the perfect intimate setting for a fun night out.

Le Reve

Transport yourself to a quaint French cafe for a delicious and romantic evening out with you s/o. They has great food and equally great french pastries for dessert!


Buckley’s is a great spot to check out if you’re in the downtown area. It’s a family owned, local spot, with great food and even better bar.


If you’re like me and always in the mood for Italian, you can’t go wrong with Ca’Lucchenzo. They have delicious cocktails and pasta dishes, and a very cozy atmosphere. While their food is amazing, my favorite part about this spot are the vintage plates and stemware. Every plate is so unique and it makes you feel like you’re in your Italian grandmothers kitchen.

Crazy Water

A great place for American Fusion, Crazy Water has unique dishes and a very cozy atmosphere.

Lake Park Bistro

If you’re looking to add a little class to your night out, Lake Park Bistro is the perfect spot. This french eatery, offers amazing service, white table cloths and beautiful views of Lake Michigan. Be sure to call of a reservation if you want a window seat!

Firefly Tosa

Firefly has great food, and a dark, romantic atmosphere. Perfect for a date night!

Third Coast Provisions

Are oyster bars your calling? Third Coast Provisions is known for theirs! Make a reservation to indulge in their amazing seafood and cocktail pairings!

Lazy Susan

Want a date night in Bay View? Head to Lazy Suzy! They have amazing seasonal small plates that are perfect to sharing with your s/o.
