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

You order at the counter, but the service is fantastic. The owner genuinely cares about the guests and the rest of the staff are so pleasant. Food is excellent. Highly recommend.

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

I love the idea of casual French food. This is exactly what I loved about Cuisinett. It feels real, not a Disneyland, or 1955 Manhattanite version of French reality. Pleasant, nice food, and educational menus, but no pretense about your wealth, or classiness required. But...More

Basic menu supplemented by plats du jour. Salads, quiches, varied entrees, and wine, though the wine is a tad expensive at around $10 per glass. Order at the counter, and take a seat. Outdoor seating, dogs welcome outdoors.

I went to Cuisinett following the advice of a friend, who sounded really enthusiastic about her experience. Though, mine wasn't great. I had a courgette/zucchini soup which didn't taste at all, a pork steak with mustard sauce: the meat was very dry while the sauce...More

I knew about this place a while ago, I kept on checking their menu changes constantly as it always impressed me for how authentic it's kept. Finally, I had the chance to visit and I should say that this place offers exactly what it promises....More

Everything was delicious and I love the pay upfront system so you can leave when you're done. Make sure to try the mushroom side with bacon. I have never had mushrooms that good before!

We have eaten at Cuisinett before and I think the food is excellent (I lived in France for a year and can attest that the items on the menu are no different than if you were in Normandy or the South of France). Others have...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
