From a good soup, fhrough a delicious entre of plump tender octopus over tasty pollenta with excellent accompanying vegetables, to a concluding superb innovative dessert, our experience could nor have been nore enjoyable! And—in a most appreciated low level, but not dead, sound atmosphere, inviting natural conversation! How rare these days! A great comfortable value packed high level dining experience, indeed.

The food was wonderful; however, I think because it was the first service of the second part of the semester, the service was poor. We also thought a few students didn't come in on Thursday.

The braised pork was terrible. We mentioned this to the wait-staff and the head of the Cuisine came to our table to discuss the meal. We were totally surprised that this gentleman did not charge us for the meal. I have been coming to the Cuisine for almost ten years. This is the only time the meal was not above average.

Great food. Very freshly made. The main dish has a good portion, not too big, just enough. The desert portion however is too huge. Service was poor. The service screw did not work well together. They never came back to our table to ask if we needed any help. They did not even look into our direction even that we signaled that we need something.

Lunch was wonderful as usual. It was "Porkfest Week" and we were surprised by some of the creative menu selections. The Ham Croquettes were outstanding and were reminiscent of classic French cuisine. My Pork Chop was grilled to perfection, and the desserts were incredible.

Outstanding - everyone should support the next generation of food industry people.
Cuisine is the best kept secret in town - not only stellar food , but at a great value!
It is first and foremost a teaching lab, but under the tutelage of their instructors are producing some of the best food in Milwaukee

I took my husband to Cuisine Restarant for a lunch date. He was skeptical - until we experienced the surroundings and the excellent meal! I am a graduate of MATC, and this was
something I had wanted to do for over 20 years. I was very pleasantly surprised to see the new ground floor location and decor. The food was wonderful, and the service left nothing to be desired. I have told co-workers and friends about our experience. We look forward to our next visit.

I have never had a bad meal at Cuisine. this is the best kept secret in Milwaukee! the food is wonderful, right size portions for lunch, reasonably priced. Selections are limited to a few entrees, but there is something for everyone! Shrimp bisque soup is outstanding - the best I have ever had. Meat is always tender. Fish is always fresh. Desserts - we always order one more than our party size and share them at the table. It is a perfect spot for lunch (not open for dinner). I would give it a 50 on a 10 point scale! Hats off to the chef and his students for preparing such elegant meals!

Gregory our server was a very nice gentleman with a plan for retirement. I was impressed with his drive. Food was excellent as usual. Unfortunately a whole group of seniors came that day and it was very very busy and loud. Oh well just lucky I guess.

We have dined at Cuisine several times, and totally enjoyed the experience. This time, our wait person was attentive, but not knowledgeable, and had a bit of a memory problem. Couldn't read his own handwriting, had to check back to confirm he got the order correct, was not attentive with coffee or iced tea refills. Did correctly give the kitchen direction on my salad order (no frisee, beets on the side).

The biggest disappointment was the small plate that my friend ordered. She ordered prosciutto wrapped chicken, but buried in the description was the word "terrine". An astute server would have known the menu, and when she ordered prosciutto wrapped chicken would have asked if she realized that it would be a terrine. I think the description of the dish should have been "terrine of prosciutto wrapped chicken" so that a customer would know what they were getting.

MATC's Cuisine Fine Dining is a well-kept secret and part of the Culinary Arts Program at the college. Open for lunch Tuesdays thru Thursdays during the school semester and open to the public. Food is exceptional both in flavor and presentation. Local ingredients are used where possible. Parking is available in the Bradley Center ramp across the street for $1 (a skywalk connects the two buildings).

The cooks even came out to introduce themselves and to ask for any suggestions for any improvements for the dining experience and food selections. Overall , we were pleased and will be back.

It was a great experience. My daughter hadn't been there before and we love lamb. We had the roast lamb and grilled chop combo. Perfectly cooked and delicious as were the sides. The bread spreads and amuse bouche were fun. I tasted her dessert - the altered raspberries were fantastic. The parking arrangements are extremely convenient - important to me at my age and with limited mobility.

I never knew that MATC had a restaurant. I love the fact that the restaurant is staffed by students. You could tell that some servers were more comfortable than others--but you could tell they were all really trying. I appreciate that. Our lobster tails were excellent---maybe some of the best I have had. My husband had the pho soup. The broth was complex and very tasty. He would have rated it a 5 if it had been warmer--it came out very tepid in temperature. The roasted fingerling potatoes were definitely overlooked and dry. Once again, a little better execution and it could have been a 5. The biggest standout was the banana bread pudding---it was AWESOME. It was a total stand out to the meal.
We will go again because I think it was a good experience. I love to see people learning and trying to become better at their craft.

This was the first time I had dined at Cuisine for lunch, so my husband and I were really looking forward to the experience. I know how hard the student chefs were working, as well as the student wait staff. The service was excellent (they were truly trained well), and the food options were spectacular, especially for someone like me with food allergies. It was great to see the student chefs working on the monitors while they prepped the food. You could tell they were working hard AND having a great time. Both Chef Reiss and Chef Kaestner know how to run a great restaurant, and their students (and the food!) are a great testament to that.

We were there on what was really their first real day for this cohort of students. Everything seemed very rough and took a long time. Some of the food was exceptionally flavorful but might have been improved with a little tinkering. I thought the hanger steak lost its meat flavor either because of an overpowering marinade or sauce. It was perfectly cooked and tender. The excellent red pepper soup was spoiled by a swamp of steaming hot croutons which it had apparently been poured over. The croutons on top were crisp and flavorful and made a good addition. A larger number of diners would probably have improved the pace. The background music was nice for someone my age - very old. I hope to go back. It is affordable
and amusing.
