If you want to eat somewhere out of town like Chicago, you can go right here in the Milwaukee area at the restaurant inside Nordstrom's at Mayfair. It is very sophisticated. The dinks are good, and I love their Shrimp, Arugula, and Corn salad. Prices...More

I never knew there was a restaurant in Nordstrom, let alone a really good restaurant. Ruscello happens to be the favorite spot of a friend, who highly recommended I try it. I'm glad I did. Located on the lower level near a parking entrance, the...More

Hungry at Mayfair and we are so tired of Cheesecake Factory and PF Changs (and quite frankly, have declared that we won't go back to those due to repeated disappointments). SO happy to have found Ruscello. Staff was super friendly and helping with suggestions. I...More

Visited for the first time today. Didn't even know it was there until yesterday. We went at lunch time. It was fairly busy, but it didn't feel crowded and we didn't feel rushed. We had a friendly waitress. My meal was just so-so though. I...More

We stumbled upon this restaurant at Mayfair Mall. It wasn't our first choice but from now on will be! A truly lucky find and who would think a restaurant of this caliber could be found in the lower level of a store (Nordstrom)! All we...More

Great atmosphere. I stopped in after shopping because it was convenient. However, I would definitely make this a destination. Great atmosphere. Modern, clean look. Interesting menu. I had a cucumber / basil / gin cocktail at the bar - very refreshing. The bartender suggested the...More

This is not a restaurant you would expect to find in a Mall/Department Store. To begin with, we had trouble finding this restaurant. We were told it was on the east side of Mayfair Mall. It is, but it is located inside of Nordstrom’s Department...More

This smallish restaurant is just to the right as you enter the East-facing doors of Nordstrom's in Mayfair Mall. It's a little difficult to find because there is no outside signage. Our friends, who were meeting us for dinner, missed the entrance 3 times. They...More
