  • Absolutely an unbelievable experience! I had my wedding here on 6/29/19 and let me start this review by saying that I cannot recommend this place enough! I chose Discovery World Museum as my venue because I really like the way the building looks and the views are easily some of the best in Milwaukee. My point of contact and venue coordinator was Madeline Cope. From my initial email to the last one, she was extremely attentive, gave awesome recommendations and thought of details that both my (now) wife and I didn’t even think about at the time but now realize how impactful it made our wedding. I have seen the wedding planning process done with friends and other family and I was always afraid of having that same stress with my wedding, but with Madeline helping and all the options available through Bartollota Catering, the whole process was unbelievably easy. The food was outstanding – especially the grilled cheese and tomato soup appetizer (GET IT - trust me on this one) and t... Read more

  • Working with Bartolotta's at Discovery World for my 7/15/17 wedding was amazing. Amanda was the best and most professional person I worked with my entire wedding planning experience. She was so detail-oriented and on the ball! Plus, literally every staff member my family or friends encountered the day of were super professional and helpful. It made the day go without a hitch! Plus, the view is AMAZING.

  • Our daughter had her wedding reception in The Pilot Room here at the Discovery World. The guests were blown away at the beauty of this venue. The 360 degree outside promenade made for a truly spectacular day. The view of Lake Michigan as well as the entire city scape of Milwaukee was breathtaking!! Words cannot express the magnificence of this sight! The food was five star delicious and presentation was impressive! We highly recommend the professionalism and helpfulness of Jessica in organizing everything for us there. Love, love love this place!

  • My fiancée and I got married at Discovery World on April 30, 2016. From start to finish we had an amazing experience! We worked with Joann as our coordinator. She was wonderful and made planning our wedding as easy as possible. She was knowledgeable, prepared, and always willing to answer whatever questions we had. The day of our wedding was perfect! Our guests all continue to comment on how great our food was and how beautiful the venue is. Everyone made sure throughout the night that everything was how we hoped it would be. Our drink glasses were never empty and staff even took our gifts to my parents car so they didn't have to be distracted. I highly recommend a wedding at Discovery World!

  • We are so happy to have chosen Bartolotta Catering at Discovery World! From beginning to end the service we received was above 5 stars. All our guests had only the best things to say about the venue and food. The food was amazing along with the service and you can't go wrong with the view! We spent a lot of time working with our venue and throughout the whole process they have never let us down. They were very responsive and our catering manager Amanda Hand we worked with throughout this process has been beyond words. Everything was perfect!

  • The Lakeview tent at Pier Wisconsin and everyone we dealt with there described in one word would be AMAZING! Our wedding coordinator, Julie Gerber, was so great! She was prompt in answering all of my emails, which would be like 4 different emails in an hour sometimes. She made sure that everything was just as it was supposed to be on our wedding day. And with us having an out of town wedding (we are from Chicago), she was so helpful in arranging meetings with us and helping find different things in the area. And the day there was perfect! The views are awesome! Our cocktail hour was held indoors because it was a bit chilly out, but the deck was open for people to go on. All of our guests raved of the pictures that they got it there (the sun was setting and the sky was gorgeous)! I don't say this often, but the food was delicious. We gave our guests the choice of Italian roasted chicken or ricotta and mushroom ravioli (my personal favorite). People were commenting on how great everythin... Read more

  • Knowing where to begin with a review of Bartolotta’s and Pier Wisconsin is extremely difficult because EVERYTHING about our wedding at this venue was perfect. The location, the views, the service, the food, the staff. . . it was simply incredible. First, the coordination team at Pier Wisconsin is top-notch. Unlike other vendors, the staff at the Pier is consistent, reliable, responsive, flexible, and timely. Joann, our coordinator, was always available, even for the smallest/detail-oriented questions. Joann worked very well with all of our vendors and was especially patient accommodating my fiancé and I (we were planning the wedding from out of state). Because Bartolotta’s is so well-established in Milwaukee, they have great insight about vendors, as well. We found our florist and our DJ through their recommendations. The fact that Bartolotta’s regularly works with these vendors made it easy for all of the teams to coordinate the day and make everything run smoothly. I... Read more

  • We fell in love with Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin the moment we stopped foot in the door. In addition, Julie at Bartolotta Catering has been incredibly helpful in the few short months that we have been in contact for our wedding venue. She is ultra quick in responding to emails and has been accommodating to our schedules as we are as out-of-towners using their venue. So far so good with everything!

  • We had our wedding reception in the tent at Pier Wisconsin and it somewhat pains me to write this review because it truly was the best day. However, we were unhappy with Bartolottas. Our wedding planner, Jessica, was difficult to communicate with (often unresponsive) and very inflexible. She was not available on the day of our wedding and didn't give us any heads up that that would be the case. We were very lucky in that we had an outside wedding planner, I'm not sure what we would have done without them. The best thing about Bartolottas is the experience they deliver your guests. All of our guests were wowed with the service and the food and the venue - it really was stunning. But knowing what goes on behind the scenes is tough. Bartolottas was far and away the most difficult vendor we worked with during the wedding planning process. There were so many unnecessary meetings and deadlines, so we never felt totally comfortable. Considering this is one of the top tier venues in the city I... Read more

  • Pier Wisconsin was a dream location for our wedding! We fell in love with the Pilot House when we went to tour the location and it was the perfect venue for us. We were looking for a space for both our ceremony and reception, and also wanted a great experience for our guests. We had a later afternoon ceremony in the Pilot House, then had cocktails and appetizers in the Great Lakes Area and Aquariums, and then went back up to the Pilot House for the reception - it was beyond perfect! Our guests had an amazing time and the unique experience of drinks in the aquariums. The food at Bartolotta's was amazing! We received so much great feedback on the appetizers and dinner options. We were also greatly impressed by the way the food was served at dinner - the waiters were amazing and it was coordinated so well. We truly have no complaints about the location. Our coordinator, Julie, was amazing to work with, the views from the Pilot House were phenomenal, and the experience was everythi... Read more

  • We had the most amazing wedding at Pier Wisconsin. Julie worked with us every step of the way and was a pleasure to work with. She was very quick to respond and everything was just perfect the day of. The food was fantastic! All of my guests are still raving about how great the food was and how attentative the staff was. The location of the venue is the best in downtown Milwaukee. We also had a front row show to the festa fireworks which were amazing. Our guests are still calling to tell us how beautiful the wedding was. Overall we are so happy we went with Bartolotta Catering at Pier Wisconsin and would highly recommend any bride to have their special day there. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again Julie!

  • The food was good, presentation was a bit dull. The appetizers seem to be more of a hit, although everyone loved the stuffed mushroom ravioli. The portions are also pretty big so you're getting your money's worth.

  • Our ceremony/reception were in the Pilot House, and our cocktail hour was in the aquarium. It was AWESOME! It has great views of the lake, and a beautiful balcony where people can go if they get too hot from the dancing. Joann was our contact, and she was fantastic. Very prompt with her responses, and very thorough too. Plus, Bartolotta is the exclusive caterer for the venue...you really can't go wrong :)
