Our party of 11 with reservations experienced slow service and less than excellent food,,some of which was overdone. Bills had to be corrected. Perhaps the management should hire more waiters to share the20% required gratuity, giving better quality service to larger parties.

We went with a small group with reservations expecting excellent food and service. What we received was less than average. My entrée was over done chicken in a watery cream sauce. Others at the table expressed similar disappointment with their meals. The sides were dry and overcooked as well. Service was friendly but slow. The staff was busy in the main rooms and our table in a room to the side was forgotten and left to wait for basic service. Requests for items were forgotten or delayed to were they were no longer wanted. Coffee was stated as "the bottom of the pot" when we complained and the refills from the "fresh" pot weren't much better. The bright spot was dessert which was tasty and rich. The bill was incorrect and included items not ordered or ordered by someone else; all had to be redone. I would not recommend this restaurant. I expected top notch food and service but left disappointed.

Traveled abroad over 20 years. Many dining experiences. From greasy spoons to 5 stars on 6 continents. La Cuisine is a culenary delight! The ambience, superb! Each dish, each course was prepared and timed perfectly. My Swiss fiancee and I were thrilled from start to finish. Immaculate! Superlative service! Decor was incredible. A great place for an intimate evening or a family gathering. Most strongly recommended. Lovely Bar. Professional staff.

We have dined several times at La Cuisine and have never been disappointed. One taste of their food and you are transported to France. Each time we go we try something new and have enjoyed every mouthful! The restaurant itself is a feast for the eyes, the red and black decor is absolutely sophisticated elegance, that mirrors the menu. The staff is courteous and well informed on the menu. The food and service is sublime. There is nothing that we can say negative about any of our visits to La Cuisine! This has got to be the best restaurant in Ocala, or Florida for that matter!
