Seasoned hand cut filet cooked unilateral, served with Dijon, capers, shallots, and topped with a farm fresh yolk with grilled baguette chips
The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. I think the limited menu will keep us from coming back to brunch but will come again for dinner. I think your food is superb.
I also miss having lunch here.
Wonderful evening with friends at this restaurant that never disappoint. The food is delicious and the traditional French recipes are amazing - cassoulet, boeuf bourguignon, escargot, etc.
The service was attentive and friendly.
We love La Cuisine, our food is always delicious and the family friendly service is top notch, one of our very favorite restaurants in Ocala.
Quaint restaurant with very good food & service!
Perfect, as always. Although we’re very sad that the Mac & Cheese was taken off the menu. 😥
Wonderful as usual!
We will definitely be back. We have lived in Ocala but this was our first time. Our only regret is that we had not visited sooner. We highly recommend La Cuisine for outstanding food, service, setting and value. We are looking forward to our next visit.
It was phenomenal
So fat the best restaurant I’ve been to in Ocalla, I am an avid gormand and give this place an enthusiastic thumbs up!
After recently moving to Ocala, we had high hopes for our Sunday brunch but unfortunately there were a number of disappointments beginning with sharing the dining room with an infant who really didn't want to be there. We raised five children so it's not like we are inexperienced but we never brought our children into a fine dining establishment until they were old enough to be quite, polite and respectful of others. Also, as individuals who maintain a low or no pork diet, we didn't have any issues with ordering our menu items ex-pork but the staff weren't as attentive to the matter. Fortunately the bottomless mimosas and our accommodating hostest kept the mood at the table positive for what perhaps could have been a disastrous Sunday brunch. Although La Cuisine is not at the top of our list for a fine dining experience, it is one of a limited number for French and will most likely try the dinner menu in the near future.
Another great dining experience. Great food, stellar service and very friendly staff
It’s always a special occasion at La Cuisine. An amazing gem in Ocala. We travel through this area every year and ALWAYS stop here for dinner
Classy experience, but expensive.
Intimate dining at its finest! 3 course meal was not rushed and everything prepared to best expectation. Definitely recommend La Cuisine of Ocala.
La Cuisine is my favorite restaurant in Ocala. The brunch was quite nice but not up to the dinner menu which I rate at 5 stars
Wasn't pleased with my experience. Arrived early to listen to Maranda. Waited 20 to 25 minutes at the bar for a drink. Would have understood if the bartender said I'll be with you shortly. I felt like we didn't exist. Service just seemed off.
The outdoor patio dining is pleasant. Our server was very attentive and we were pleased with everything we ordered. We are looking forward to returning for brunch !
Service was very slow. Escargot came out Luke warm. Caesar salad dressing was mostly water. Food was mediocre. Will not be back.
Delicious food and nice birthday dinner celebration. Thank you!
Great food and service. Perfect for any special occasions
Price for meal was extremely high for quality of food. Paying for bread for the table?
Otherwise service was good.
This is the best French restaurant! Great food and great service!
My wife and I were seated at an outside table right outside the door with an umbrella next to my chair. The umbrella stand made it uncomfortable to move. In fact I hit my elbow and even my head on the umbrella mechanism several times. That being said, the food was its typical quality which made the umbrella easy to overlook.
Service, however, was quite lacking. The young lady seemed to rather be anywhere but at work, exhibiting little to no personality. I do not remember a single smile or greeting. This is in stark contrast to the young man who served us during our previous visit. She never mentioned the brunch specials, which I overheard another server recite to another table after we had received our meals.
The town square of Ocala is lit up beautifully, & Le Cuisine adds to it.
We enjoyed the experience, however the Casoulette was a bit disappointing; too thick.
Everything else was lovely.
Great food and service !!!
Third time back to La Cuisine, highly recommend, both inside dining and outside on the patio too!
I love this restaurant. It is decorated so nice, and the food and service are outstanding. We enjoy coming here for special occasions.
Christmas Eve dinner!
Everything was wonderful as usual
Beautiful restaurant with fantastic French food. Highly recommended for a special occasion.
Wonderful authentic French cuisine. Old fashioned dishes you cannot find most places, like beef bourginon and cassoulet. Fantastic steak tartar. Excellent service.
Cannot say enough about the quality of the food. The short ribs were extremely tender and melted in my mouth. The onion soup was outstanding and the seasonal ice cream was the creamiest I have ever had. The service was a bit slow, but that was apparently due to an injury and hospitalization of one of the kitchen staff. We sat outside and were surprised they had not installed heaters. By the end of the evening I was actually shivering. In spite of these slight negatives, La Cuisine is now our "go to" spot. Highly recommend.
Typically we love this restaurant. Unfortunately this last visit wasn’t as good as usual. Waitress was polite but never even introduced herself. Menu has changed and prices have skyrocketed. No specials anymore. The creme brûlée wasn’t nearly as good. Disappointed, not sure it’s worth the money anymore.
Wonderful food and pleasant wait staff. No issues other than it being busy for a Sunday but that’s the holidays 😊.
Had such a great experience here for our 4 year anniversary. Will definitely be coming back! :)
Great food, wine, entertainment, service and scenery!!! Highly recommend them!!
Good was excellent!!
Very nice restaurant. Charles, our server, was very personable. My husband had the bouillabaisse and I had the short ribs - both very good. My only complaint was that the short ribs could have had more sauce. Our predinner martinis were excellent, and the creme brulee was delicious.
Always an incredible meal. Wonderful service, wonderful food, wonderful ambience.
Our favorite place - always special. We ate outside for the first time and it was lovely - the trees and shrubbery were decorated in white lights for Christmas on a warm Florida night. I had the new prosciutto salad and swordfish - it was delicious.
Look forward to going again and again.
