The food reminds me of the food that I enjoyed in France. The real surprise was that my gluten intolerant wife had several choices, including gluten free French fries. My seafood stew was delicious. The hostess was very friendly and helpful.

Not many French restaurants in this area and fewer are owned by a FRENCH FAMILY. good authentic food in a clean, pleasant place at good prices. This is a hard combination to find anywhere on this peninsula. A great spot for lunch or dinner. Consistently...good.More

Consistently delicious French comfort food is what Cuisinett is offering and they certainly deliver. Their pomme frites are second to NONE and the freshness of the produce in fabulous. Delicious "French burger" and the grilled cheese with Brie and dried figs is divine. Lovely wine...selections and they are always adding new selections. Warm and cozy on a cold evening to snuggle indoors - and so lovely to sit outside on warm afternoons. You simply can't do better than Cuisinett.More

Presentation is nice and food is good. Prices are ok. Seating is a little tight. Overall the restaurant is decent.

Ordering was difficult as everything sounded delicious. Decided on the smoked duck salad ($15) and pomme frites ($5) and was so happy with my choice! The portions were generous and I didn't want the meal to end it was that good. Staff were very friendly...and kept checking in to make sure all was well. Lunch time was relaxed and low-key, and hanging out for 2 hours was no problem even though all the tables were full. A great find!More

I LOVE this place. The owner is so, so sweet and friendly. He is a perfect small business owner. The menu is wonderful as it offers French cuisine with sauces from different regions of France. The food is perfect!

The restaurant is not that big, about 8-10 tables inside and maybe another 4 outside. Very simple decor, can be a bit loud since no sound absorbs feature in the decor.

This is a cozy place to get your French palate on! All dishes are from various regions of France and satisfy the need to travel to France for the delicious food without traveling!

This is my go to place for a French burger in San Carlos. I love the burger so much I have not tried other dishes. My wife always has the quiche for lunch- large one with a good sized salad. The burger can come with...different cheeses. The service is very good and the owner Jeffrey greets everyone. Highly recommended.More

If you ignored the busy San Carlos Avenue car noise, you might think you were eating in a small French restaurant. You must order at the counter but your food is brought to your table. Had lunch with friends this week and my quiche Lorraine...was delicious, very creamy and tasty. It comes with a small green salad. My two friends had a salad with ahi tuna and said it was so filling. There are some tables outside and on a nice day, it’s fun to people watch and have lunch there. We also have had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed it...More
