Food is great, service not so good. This is the second time in a row that the service was poor. At this price point I expect more. Three strike & you're out

Very friendly and well-trained waiter staff were attentive and helpful. The food was good but they should consider another recipe for their Caesar dressing, maybe even do a mix and toss at the table to improve the experience. Noise levels were high but this could be improved by adding ceiling curtains to absorb the sound. It was nice to find traditional French dishes in this part of Florida. We would go back if in Ocala again.

I am NEVER disappointed at La Cuisine, nor are my guests. It is my “go-to” place for new friends coming to and settling in Ocala and/or customers (I am in teal estate). Without fail the food, the drinks, the staff, the atmosphere - excellent!

Had a great experience tonight at La Cuisine while celebrating a friend’s birthday. We shared a bottle of wine, the mussels appetizer, and two entrees. We reserved a high top table next to the bar and enjoyed the ambiance along with live music. The value is fantastic! Highly recommend. I come here several times a month.

Everytime we dine at La Cuisine, we feel VERY special. The entire staff go out of their way to ensure our experience is truly exceptional. The food is excellent, especially the Grouper, and the atmosphere is totally romantic. If I close my eyes, I would feel that I've been transported to a cafe in Lyon. We can't wait to return - SOON.

Very nice place. Very good food and friendly service. My fish was tasty, but slightly over cooked. Our server shared the specials but failed to provide the price for them. Our dinner guests each got the scallop appetizer special. When the bill arrived, it turned out the app was $25 each. It would have been nice to have know the price prior to ordering.

Very nice special restaurant with excellent food and Ambiance. Rack of Lamb was perfect, ratatouie was excellent side with good rich flavor. Scallop appetizer were tender sweet and just the right amount of browning. The souffle airy and delicious.
The duo played beautiful music and where very versatile in voice and playing of guitar and flute.

The service was attentive and the food was very good. One complaint or food for thought would be that my potatoes au gratin (served in a small bowl) was place on my plate and the sauce for my meal was all around it. Also, the potatoes were over-stuffed which left very little room for actual cream/cheese thus they were dry and only mildly warm. Sometimes a little less is more.

Excellent pro-level service and consistently excellent food. There was tasteful live music that was not overbearing. The prices are somewhat high for the area but the value is still quite reasonably considering the quality. Easily amongst the top restaurants in Ocala.

Restaurant is very attractive. Food was excellent and plentiful. Wife was a little disappointed that there was a very limited choice of vegetables and they were an additional charge. Service was great and the painted Happy Birthday in chocolate on her dessert!

The service was very good. The manager went above and beyond to help us. However the food was disappointing. The vegetarian meal was not very good . The fish was swimming in butter, which was not necessary. The waiter was pleasant and helpful.

There were 4 of us and everyone thought the meal was outstanding as well as the service. 2 were friends in visiting from RI and both said that they were so glad they had visited La Cuisine - one of the best meals they have had. We as the host and hostess were so glad that our guests were delighted and impressed by our choice of restauarnt! Always one of the best in Ocala!
