We were recommended this place and it did not disappoint. The food is great! The service can be a little slow though as they only seem to have 2 members of staff.

The food was fresh, well presented and so very tasty. Classical dishes and some innovations by the chef were all great. I took the gamble with snails and I felt like i was in Paris, every dish and especially desert were great. They never rushed us and service was great too. I highly recommend for any occasion!

We wanted to check for ourselves why this restaurant is rated #1 in both Trip Advisor and Yelp. We see why. Not elegant, but cozy. Not over the top with linens, silverware and stuffy waiters, but comfortable like someone wanted to impress you at their home. The food was first rate with a king crab (maybe a queen crab size legs) appetizer that was enough for two and had a nice dipping sauce with assorted greens. The local salmon main course was excellent and the Chilean sea bass was the best I've every had, perfectly cooked with a light crust that made the textures unique. A couple of local beers were good and bread with a unique spread served as part of the meal. About $60 for two so good value in my mind. A bit crowded table settings, but this place is popular so I can see why they maximize the numbers of tables. Food served in a timely manner and the waiter who spoke great English is very helpful. I highly recommend you go there when the place opens as it filled up very quickly. Not sure if they take reservations. Highly enjoyed La Cuisine!

3 of us visited this place on Friday night having seen great reviews of the place. The crab lasagna was recommended. Unfortunately our experience didn't reflect the reviews with slow service too few staff on duty and the crab lasagne was disappointed. There was crab in the lasagna but the other ingredients tended to overwhelm the crab flavour. Overall disappointing
