We dined on Friday night and were surprised that the restaurant was less than half full. The appetizer of risotto was good, but very mildly flavored. Our entrees were nice-pork shank was huge and red burgundy sauce was very good. The snapper special was ok. We ordered sides of the "famous" macaroni and cheese. It was awful-dried out and hard....

I was happy to find LaCuisine in Ocala. It was delicious. I was dining alone so I sat at the bar. It was a nice menu, a good selection of wines and cocktails and great food. The bartender and hostess were also quite helpful. I was a happy diner.

My children gave me a gift certificate to La Cuisine for my birthday. My husband and I enjoyed the ambiance as well as the service and our dinner was amazing! The Bourguignon Beef & Mashed Potatoes with truffle oil was delicious. Chocolate Mousse for dessert was light and scrumptious!

I went with a group of ladies for lunch and it was very good. They featured a broccoli and cheese quiche, as their daily special. The quiche was fresh and just the right amount of cheese, the salad was also very fresh and the dressing was delicious. I didn't have dessert, I was too full, but the ladies that had... More

I have eaten at this restaurant twice. The first visit I ordered the duck with pommes de terre au romarin (potatoes with rosemary). It was wonderful, very flavorful, everything was seasoned well. The wait staff was very attentive without being over bearing. The restaurant was dark with fantastic mood lighting, we were very close to the singer which was lovely... More

Great comfortable atmosphere, excellent authentic menu, wonderful staff smacking of a carefully hand-picked pedigree. Owner on premise and introduced himself. Singer close to table was not intrusive, very skilled and enjoyable.
