It's not quite table service, but almost. Get a table, go to the counter to order. Choose a main item, choose a side, pay and go back to your table where it will be delivered by a very friendly staff. The sea bass special was...More

Cuisinette is a small comfy place with superb friendly service. It feels very welcoming and warm just to be there. It's nice once-and-awhile to eat something different from all of the other fare around Belmont/San Carlos. The food seems super fresh and perfectly made. Food...More

Casual but one of the best places to eat in the Peninsula. Simple but authentic french menu. Everything is great from the ratatouille to sandwiches to the pork with sauce of choice to even the carrots and peas. Well balanced menu with something for everyone...More

This little downtown San Carlos spot is a fun little oasis of pure Frenchness. The setting is simple, the food is nicely crafted from fresh ingredients, and the service is very French - that is, pleasant but slow. It's also, unfortunately, a bit expensive, so...More

The menu is not huge, but offers a broad range of both comfort food and non-standard options. I have liked everything I have tried: quiche, ham & emmental sandwich, the "French burger." Staff is friendly and capable; the space is cozy in a European way....More

A comfortable, cozy restaurant-diner with French food menu and relaxing ambience. The food is good. The dining process is for one to place his/her orders at the counter and then select a seating. The prepared entrees will thereafter be served at your table. The place...More

It's odd to go to a restaurant where you have to order at the counter, but get table service. Anyway, this little gem has been in San Carlos for some time and gets quite busy. We sat outside under a heat lamp as we had...More

Cuisinett’ Story Back in 2008, Geoffroy Raby had a vision to bring a new style of French Restaurant. Forget about your typical stereotype about French Restaurant, Geoffroy wanted to bring back the neighborhood café that he grew up with. A place where you can enjoy great food (and wine) at reasonable prices and in a casual atmosphere. Fast forward to 2011 and Cuisinett was born. Our team ‘s goal is to make you discover France through its Regional Cuisine and bring you on a delicious journey of French Comfort Food. A bientot Geoffroy and the Cuisinett Team
