    We had a lovely dinner last night. Food was very, very good, and our server, Janet, was the most attentive we've had in a while. I was very pleasantly surprised by all of it!

    Good, service and ambiance were very good as always, but found that the board cheese was more crackers than anything, pulpo you could barely see it in the small plate, and the cost of the meal was very high for a party of 3

    Dined here for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner. The restaurant is very pleasant, nice environment. The staff was friendly and available. The food, however, was inedible. There is no other way to say it. Especially the Turkey dish offering. Three people in our party ordered it and not one of them was even fair. The turkey roulade portion was so over cooked it was actually hard. To the point of not even being able to cut into it. The ham was slightly better but not by much. Several of the pieces were too fatty or the end of ham and again dry. This would have been a wonderful experience, if there was anything to eat or we weren’t charged $85/person for inedible food.

    Thanksgiving dinner at Tre Rivali was a big mistake! My husband and I wanted a quality meal without the fuss. Instead we were served a shockingly bad meal. The turkey was hard and dry and the cornbread stuffing soggy. Soup was tolerable, salad tasted awful. The rest was just okay. Never again.

    We had a late reservation and finished up our meal long after the restaurant closed, but our server Janet was extremely accommodating, knowledgeable, and sweet to us. We really appreciated her service. Everything we ordered was delicious, presentation was beautiful and the portions were large for the price point. This is my first time dining here and I will be recommending to all my friends!

    Had a great dining experience. Lindsey was our server and she was attentive, shared the specials, and all around pleasant. Food was delicious, particularly the lamb kafta. Our dining was for a business meeting and the ambiance was perfect. Lively enough but still quiet to have good conversation. Great time! 🍷

    Tre RivaliResponded on November 11, 2022Thanks so much! We appreciate you join us for dinner and glad you enjoyed it. Look forward to having you back with us again soon!

    Could only get 2 spots at the bar- but it was worth it! Maxwell the bartender took great care of us and his recommendations were right on! I’d probably sit there rather at a table because he was so wonderful! Highly recommend the place!

    Tre RivaliResponded on November 11, 2022We agree, Maxwell IS amazing. And I'm a big fan of dining at a bar too. Soon we will be unveiling some bar-only food specials, so stay tuned!

    It was sort of ok but the food was basic, not particularly well done, boring, and okay because it was food, but no one thought it was good. It was adequate, no reason to ever go back.

    Tre RivaliResponded on November 11, 2022Oh no! I wish I had the chance to talk to you about the menu. I would tell you about our Spice Rubbed Chicken with tzatziki, red zhoug, and fire roasted tomato. Or Eggplant Salad with yogurt, pomegranate, and almond. Pulpo (octopus) with romesco, and potato. Croquetas with ham + manchego. Lamb Kafta, Carrots with harissa. Crazy delicious Brussels Sprouts with raisins and maple bacon, Osso Buco with polenta, Whole Branzino. So many special dishes I would love you to try far from basic or boring!

    Lovely setting for this newer restaurant. Parking is a bit trying but that's the Third Ward. Menu was varied with many delicious sound items. Food was very good and exceptional Osco Bucco. Nice bar and wine selections. Everything was well presented and looked appealing. Well spaced tables and noise level appropriate for conversation. Friendly staff. Nice place to meet meet friends fora drink and apps too.

    Tre RivaliResponded on November 11, 2022Thank you! Just tell me we can tempt you back enough to brave that 3rd Ward Parking. Seriously - just so you know - we do have valet parking at the hotel, plus a parking lot on Chicago and Milwaukee, AND the lot at Chicago and Water St - both within a block. Hope that helps. Looking forward to seeing you back again soon!

    In town for our anniversary. Staying at the Kimpton Journeyman in the Third Ward. As out of towners we're not super aware of what's great and what to stay away from. We simply chose out of convenience. Max, our server was fantastic. The food was good, service was great. Thank you!

    Tre RivaliResponded on October 27, 2022Thanks for celebrating the anniversary with us! Glad to hear you enjoyed - and we agree, Maxwell is fantastic. Please come back and visit us again next time you're in Milwaukee.

    Absolutely wonderful lunch at Tre Rivali. Dishes were fresh and beautifully presented. Difficult to make a choice among the many menu options. A lovely restaurant located in the hip but serene Kimpton Journeyman. However, the staff is the crowning jewel of Tre Rivali; servers are warm and professional, never rushing but always there when needed. The valet staff as well went out of their way to make sure that even parking the car was seamless. Perfect.

    Tre RivaliResponded on October 27, 2022Thanks so much for the kind words. We hope that you'll be back soon to enjoy all those menu items you didn't get a chance to try!

    Waiter had some big tables in addtion to our twosome- we waited extended periods of time for service. 10+ minutes for a glass of wine?? Bolognese pasta was outstanding- definitley home made noodles. Pizza was "just ok". We were visiting from out of town and decided to go across the street for desert- glad we did.
