    Service was excellent and our servers were very customer friendly and aware of the foods being served. We were able to make a good selection because our server was familiar with the menu. As retirees, we were happy to visit the campus and to utilize Cuisine for a great meal. I have reservations to bring my pastor and the church secretary for a meal on the 27th.

    Both my wife's salmon and my Thai inspired pork dish were top notch. Not sure I could find the same quality anywhere else in MKE. We were at the chefs table in the kitchen providing an extraordinary experience. The waiter assigned was friendly, very knowledgeable and attentive. Great experience and glad to support the up and coming chefs!

    Cuisine is a great spot for lunch. The dining room ambiance is quiet and comfortable. There is a small wine and beer selection, but there is a good variety. Specialty coffees too. The food was excellent; everything was prepared from scratch. Appetizing plate presentations. Service was attentive yet not overbearing. What is truly amazing is that Cuisine is part of the MATC Culinary Arts program, with both food and service done by students.

    As a teaching restaurant, you need to expect certain learning curves. I do not find this a problem as it makes the dining experience linger. We are back this next week for another meal and fully support this experience and these young people getting into the hospitality field.

    We've been to MATC for lunch several times. We've never been disappointed. We're seniors, and prefer to go for an elegant lunch vs. dinner; as such, we've enjoyed the cuisine at MATC. Thank you, students at MATC.

    Cuisine is such a treasure, I love going there for lunch. They always offer a nice variety of menu options and the food is delicious! They also knock it out of the park on presentation and service. It's easy to tell that everyone wants to do a great job. Plus, it's always interesting o speak with the students about their learning process and career plans. I have introduced many friends and family to Cuisine and they've since become equally devoted. Cuisine is my favorite downtown restaurant.

    The culinary program at MATC has continued its degree excellence throughout the years. It is clear that the instructors have a great deal of experience in the food service industry and only want their students to excel in their chosen food service employment. May they continue to uphold those standards of excellence!

    What a gem Cuisine is!! Stop saying the food is prepared by students because I don't believe it! 🙂 Although you could tell there was some nervousness in service, it was fabulous! The plating was superb! The corn soup was soothing and hearty. Temperature of my beef was perfect. Nice crunchy broccolini. Creamy mashed potatoes. The . I'm running out of positive adjectives, so suffice to say a 10 from me!

    Our appetizer portions were generous! (Delicious mixed greens salad & prosciutto flatbread). Entrees: duck leg was moist and perfectly cooked. Sirloin was tender and cooked medium. Desserts: kitchen was out of sour cherry sorbet (disappointing) but the raspberry was delicious. The peanut butter/chocolate dome was large & rich enough to share. Floor staff were the best we've ever had. Personable and helpful, well-groomed and efficient. Thanks for another great dining experience!

    One of the best kept secrets in Milwaukee. Service is a little slower than a regular restaurant but that's because the students are in training. It is well worth a little wait. The food is always delicious and a good value for the price.

    The food was served at the right temperature and fresh. I ate bass with sauteed baby bok choy and water chestnuts and thai curry rice. The bok choy might have been a little overcooked, but not by much. Every flavor came through and was delicious and well-blended with the other flavors. Good meal planning! The bass had a light breading - perfect. There was a full plate of food - good value. What can I say about the dessert? I love sweets. But this was as eye-appealing as delicious. It was chocolate dome. The lightly toasted pecans with light caramel sauce and chocolate streusel was excellent. I should have taken a picture, since I've never seen such a beautiful dessert.

    This bothers me at a lot of restaurants - when serving the next course, please remove the previous course dishes FIRST, then serve the next course. I am not sure what they teach and I know it will take some additional time, but having the patron make room or lift their plate for the next course is really not acceptable. I might as well buss my own table then. I do enjoy seeing the next generation of chefs/servers and whole heartily support the program!

    They consistently top the previous visit...who’s is tough to do. I gorge myself on their delicious breads then have to bring home part of the entree. Special touches such as a complimentary canapé, parking validation, etc don’t hurt by any means. Have to mention Service shows great training is in place, but this week was looked after by Lowanda with exemplary attentiveness to timing, add to order, etc. , most pleasant. Dessert was to die for as well. If one can’t find something enticing on their changing menu, then I’d truly be amazed.
