    Wonderful French bistro serving a traditonal menu and an excellent selection of wines, beers and cocktails. Under executive chef & owners Patrice & Elodie Perron (and family - thank you, Roxanne!), the service was most enjoyable (thank you, Naome!) and each selection reflected the success of La Cuisine's "kitchen" philosophy: fresh ingredients, careful preparation and thoughtful presentation. A further suggestion: consider their Sunday brunch - bon appetit!

    La Cuisine is one of our favorite restaurants so it pains me to have to write a bad review. Service was poor. We had to wait about an hour for our food to arrive. Our waiter did not keep us informed of any problems until we prompted him. I ran out of water twice, we had to ask 3 times for our mimosas to be refilled, the waiter blamed the delay on some problem in the kitchen that I did not understand, and my wife's coffee selection was not what she wanted. We have been customers here for years and were so surprised by this experience. Finally, our reservation form asks if the visit is a special occasion and if we have any special requests. I checked birthday and stated in remarks that it was my wife's birthday. On the numerous visits in the past, the server always greeted us with some nice remark concerning out special occasion, but not this time. No mention whatsoever. My wife was really looking forward to a great brunch but was extremely disappointed.

    Took my daughter there. It was her first experience at a French restaurant and they knocked it out of the park. Our server Jessie was amazing.

    This was our third time in La Cuisine and the food was the best yet, but contacts with our waiter and others at the restaurant were a little less pleasant then on the other occasions.

    Our service was impeccable- our server Naomi made it great. Food was great. Fish was fresh, veggies yummy. Creme brûlée was fine. That could be improved. Drinks here are always spot on. Ambiance was very quiet like a church, so watch your voice level if you go ;) Overall, one of our favorites in ocala and probably our favorite in downtown ocala. Nothing beats sitting at the bar here for a great drink and some good food. Thanks!

    Outstanding first visit! I had the Duck Magret with Risotto, my wife had the Chicken Airline breast and we treated mom to a 16oz. Ribeye! Also shared Steak Tartare appetizer, wow! Every dish was fantastic and our server Naome was outstanding!
