Check out Zilli's Lake & Garden in dowtown Milwaukee. Coast restaurant and the Miller Room is part of this area right on Wisconsin Ave. You can see the lake, Milwaukee Art Museum, and Pier Wisconsin. We have been to several events cater by Zilli's from friends' weddings to corporate events. We also attended their Mother's Day brunch this past May. YUMMY! Every time we were at these events we meet a Zilli family member one or two. There must be at least a dozen of the family involved in the business.
We have started visiting the caters to choose for our wedding and by far Zilli's has been number 1 on our list. They have been thorough, replying in good time, and great service.
We are using Zilli's at the Miller Room and I am blown away by their service. It's amazing. They food was exceptional when we did a tasting and the customer service is by far better than any other venue we considered looking at. We've dropped in unannounced serveral times to show family/wedding party members the room and our coordinator Candy Zilli knew exactly who we were and took time to answer any questions we would have. Really impressive she remembered us and our date when you consider how many upcoming events they have going on. Zilli's has also been really great substituting menu items we wanted and finding certain beers for us with minimal to no upcharges.
They have also catered graduation parties and corporate events for us and I couldn't speak highly enough about their service.
