“To Die For!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2009

Traveled abroad over 20 years. Many dining experiences. From greasy spoons to 5 stars on 6 continents. La Cuisine is a culenary delight! The ambience, superb! Each dish, each course was prepared and timed perfectly. My Swiss fiancee and I were thrilled from start to finish. Immaculate! Superlative service! Decor was incredible. A great place for an intimate evening or a family gathering. Most strongly recommended. Lovely Bar. Professional staff.

“The best food this side of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2009

We have dined several times at La Cuisine and have never been disappointed. One taste of their food and you are transported to France. Each time we go we try something new and have enjoyed every mouthful! The restaurant itself is a feast for the eyes, the red and black decor is absolutely sophisticated elegance, that mirrors the menu. The staff is courteous and well informed on the menu. The food and service is sublime. There is nothing that we can say negative about any of our visits to La Cuisine! This has got to be the best restaurant in Ocala, or Florida for that matter!

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2009

Overpriced and poor customer service. Given the wrong meal, which was not good, then given another less expensive meal but charged the price of the more expensive wrong meal. We were told that they had to prepare the more expensive meal regardless of what we ordered and that we had to charged for it.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2009

Or first experience in September was excellent. Our second trip was
a disappointment. The soup of the day was not as it was described and was very salty. My portion of grilled fish was extremely small for the price. My husband's pork shank was tough and the sauce was not what it was on our first visit. We brought our friends, who had never been there before, and they had higher expectations. One of them ordered the roast chicken and was expecting something different. The service was fine, as there were only three other tables occupied.
The menu is somewhat limited and should be changed occasionally.
Maybe in time, we will try it again.
