This was my third time eating there. I was disappointed in the whole evening. They were out of the liquor I drink. I have absolutely nothing good to say about of meal that evening, it was awful. Ordered items on the menu, only to have the waiter come back to the table to inform us that they are out of them. In the past, I have enjoyed the food there. after this last visit I do not think we will ever go back.

This is our second visit to the Cuisine for dinner before going to the Fisher Theater. I recommend making reservations at 6:00 pm for a 8:00 pm show as that allows you the opportunity to dine slowly and get out in time for the show. The night we were there, the place emptied out quickly for the show and, while we were the last to leave, we were on time for the show.

The food is always wonderful and the service is courteous and quick. Great wine list and the bar has the best liquors available.

I recommend this location!

It was awful. We had reservations at 545. Still no food at 715. They were understaffed and over booked! We asked to speak to manger, ( which who even knows if we got the manger) because she was a server. Very rude and not apologentic. Unprofessional, she kept telling us out food was coming it was now 730 and we disnt even have time to eat.! So we left with out dinner. Don't go!

Terrible experience. We didn't order the theatre pre fixe menu, and the waiter didn't seem to know how to handle. We came before our show at the theatre almost 2 hours before showtime, and were still almost late. Would not recommend, or go back.

Cuisine is a favorite spot for great food in a QUIET setting. So many great restaurants are too noisy to visit with friends and family, and Cuisine does a great job of providing really good food, in a great setting. Love the cocktails, the wine list, the various small plates and appetizers they offer. It's got just a bit of country french flair with their charcuterie, frisee salad, and duck offerings without being the least bit stuffy or overly french.

Our server Kahlil was fantastic! I noticed some reviews found the restaurant "outdated"... the ceiling may have looked a little old, but I found it gave the place character and the lighting, tables and rest of the decor was modern, yet warm and inviting. The food was creative and tasty for the most part. We were there on NYE so I understand there was a limited menu, and there were a lot of courses, but it would have been nice to have a choice for every course, or at least a majority of them, not just 2 of them. Also would have been nice to have a choice on how I wanted my beef cooked...it was so rare many of us could only eat the outer edges of it, which I found disappointing. A cocktail menu would also have been a nice touch.

The restaurant is in a beautiful old mansion ina great location for those attending a show at the Fisher. Our waiter was not that well schooled and so the service was not to expectation. We both very much enjoyed the meal but thought the accompaniments were lean for the main element of our scallops dish.

 (Chicago)·Dined on November 4, 2017

This is a nice Midtown spot before a show at the Fisher or other nearby venues. Our waiter, Justin, was engaging and conscientious of any time constraints we had. Cuisine uses the team concept for service so we got to meet a number of servers and assistants. The food was great: the Lobster Bisque was enjoyable as were the Thai Shrimp. My wife enjoyed her Lyon Salad (with the warm poached egg). The main courses on this prix fixe meal were the right size and properly prepared. We had the Grilled Sirloin and the Chicken Cordon Bleu. The side dishes with our entrees were very good.

The ambiance of this beautiful old home gave it an intimate feeling. A few places in the main dining room showed the age (and water damage) but it was very relaxing.

We enjoyed our dinner and would go back again.

Let me start by saying that the food here was good. Prepped well, looked pretty. There was nothing wrong with anything. But there wasn't anything really interesting or exciting or crazy-delicious about it either.* For the money, I expected more. The service wasn't great - it was pre-theater so likely their busiest time, but since they're across the street from the theater, I'd think that they would have worked that out by now. We had to ask for things we were missing and it wasn't easy to flag someone down. If you're the type who likes good food a little on the bland side, and enjoys a nice bread basket after the meal is over, this is the place for you.
*The one exception was the cauliflower side, made with red grapes, pumpkin seeds, and capers. Definitely interesting and surprisingly tasty.

The waiter was great but the service was slow. It truly appeared as if they did not have enough help, although all the staff was pitching in. The pre-theater Pre-Fixe meal was great, but it seemed if you ordered from the menu (as someone in our party did) that they weren't expecting it.

Food was delicious though! And we gave ourselves enough time 2.5 hours before the show.

We ate at Cuisine before a show at The Fisher Theatre. The food was very good but service could have been better. Server brought appetizers before we even had our drinks, and our side dish did not make it to the table until we had finished our main courses. Will return.

Amazing night. We decided since it was our first time that we'd try their 6 course tasting menu to allow us to try a lot of their dishes along with a wine flight where they paired a wine with each course. Tuna Tartar w/risotto cake - incredible way that it was prepared and served. A perfect start. 2) Asian/Thai 5 spice shrimp was so good - I'm still thinking about it. Justin suggested that we try eating it with the shell on - It was amazing the texture, flavors co-mingling on the tongue. 3) Sea Scallops w/bourbon infused apples and baby asparagus - these were lovely: again the flavor combination along with the perfect sear was delicious. 4) Halibut w/potatoes and a mushroom sauce - light and delicate a true suprise. 5) Salmon en pappiotte - served with citrus butter - absolutely amazing to open and have everything inside perfectly cooked. 6) Dessert - Chocolate Torte with a creme brulee which they served with a port. Justin our server was impeccable and really fine tuned the wine to not only what we were eating but to our personal taste preferences. The chef created this menu for us since they usually have either a meat tasting menu or a vegetarian/vegan one. We stated that we're pescatarians (vegetarians who eat seafood) and on the fly, they came up with all of that. Thank you for the wonderful meal, beautiful surroundings, and an awesome server, Justin.

We were warned that the service was poor on other websites and they were correct. At the beginning of our meal the service was great, very friendly waiter - Jack - and he was very attentive. Once things started getting busier it was apparent that they don't have enough waiters. In addition, the waiters were busing tables - not cool. They need to have more waiters on staff and have other people busing, serving food, etc.
That being said, the food and drinks were outstanding and the restaurant is very pleasant in ambiance. The location is perfect right across the street from the Fisher Theater. I would definitely recommend to friends but would give them the caveat about the service. Hope they correct things soon.

Disappointing pre-theater dinner at Cuisine. The "Love Never Dies" menu was pedestrian. The salad was decent but the chicken cordon bleu was tasteless, the mashed potatoes were blah, and the haricot verts were cooked to death. I miss the inspired cooking and ambiance of the Cuisine in it's heyday.

We have been going to this restaurant many times prior to attending a show at the Fisher and also for Restaurant Week. This time I brought a group of 8 ladies. I was appalled when 1 woman came out of the ladies' room saying that there was a mouse sharing the bathroom with her!!!! The ceiling in the dining room is in disrepair and makes dining in the room not very appetizing. I will not go back.
Cuisine could be an amazing little "diamond in the rough" but needs much TLC before I will return or recommend it.

pre-theater dinner waiter was too chatty, we were trying to catch up with friends before the show and he kept joining in on the conversation. One of us ordered the steak medium well, it was rare and grizzly. That was on the prefix theater menu and she never got her dessert. A manhatten was ordered with maraschino cherries, were told they don't serve them because they are made from formaldehyde!! We are season ticket holders for years and love the convenience of Cuisine, but they need to step it up, like it use to be.
