    The overall experience was great. The menu had a good selection of choices to include vegetarian options. Each course was really good. I highly recommend a visit.

    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.

    It is a real treat to go to Cuisine........we don't just recommend the restaurant to family and friends, we take them and buy their lunch and they are always pleased. The food is always good and there are plenty of choices. The servers are well trained and pay attention to details. I also enjoy when the instructors come around and talk with us. We have always had wonderful experiences. Thank you!

    It’s a little unfair to compare this restaurant to a typical business, but their food is top notch, so that’s worth celebrating. Otherwise, the front of the house, including waitstaff and ambiance is very much a work in progress or outwardly academic. Overall, as long as you go in with reasonable expectations, this is a great experience.

    Students were very polite and attentive. My only comment was the Shrimp with asparagus and linguine ingredients listed lemon, garlic olive oil and Parmesan. But the linguine sauce seemed heavy as if there was cream added. I have an allergy to dairy but can tolerate a small amount of Parmesan. Everything else was excellent. The room temperature could have been warmer. I had to wear my down jacket to stay comfortable. Chad was extremely good and conversed with his customers. Ability to explain details of ingredients; blended butter spread. Great smiles from Chad and our server. Attentive to our needs; ie. water refills. Very efficient and fast service.
