We have been to La Cuisine many times in the last few years. We usually go about once a month. The service is always wonderful and the food has never disappointed us. The last time we were there we waited a very long time for dinner. Upon waiting about 30 minutes we called the waitress over and asked about out... More

A quiet corner for our 25th anniversary. We couldn't be in Paris but we could pretend for an evening.

I have been to this restaurant many times. However, I went for their Sunday brunch on 1/8 to celebrate a birthday. Place was not busy. We were placed in the rear of the restaurant. It took more than 20 minutes for our waitress to show up in which she sarcastically asked, "Has anyone helped you?" Obviously, not as we had... More

After our last visit to this little French Restaurant several years ago, I couldn't wait to go back. The drive is significant for us, so it isn't a casual visit. We went to celebrate my 64th birthday. At that first visit the Bourguignon was the best I had ever had, and I've thought about it since. This visit it was... More

My wife and I made our first visit to this cozy and wonderful French restaurant last night. Our service with Jesse was top notch - the whole staff was terrific! The food was perfect. Maybe the best bread I have ever eaten. Nice wine selection. Will be back!

My wife and I were in the downtown area for the art walk and decided to give this restaurant a try. We were disappointed! It wasn't so much price, although it was a little pricey, but more about the quality. Everything that we ate from appetizer through entree was very salty. The duck a l'orange was very dry and the...

Have been disappointed several times in the past, gave it another shot last week. The special was Red Snapper over a pile of black olives. Thats it, a small slab of fish over a pile of olives. Firstly the olives were so salty that it overpowered the fish. The fish was OK but that dish was certainly not worth $32.... More
