Oakland >Cuisine Restaurant
Brand new restaurant! Great food, excellant service. We were planning on going to Le Cheval, but stopped to check out the menu at this new restaurant "Cuisine". The owner (Im assuming) came out and offered us free glasses of wine to check them out. So we went in. The place is nice, not super elegant or stuffy... just nice. The fixed price menu is a great deal. I had a pork dish that was absolutely incredible. The dessert (lavender brownie) was great too. Service was really really good, but then again there wasnt too many people there. I definately recommend checking this place out for yourself.
Great weekend brunch.
I have eaten at Restaurant Cuisine 2 or 3 times for dinner and 4 times for weekend brunch. For dinner, the food is well prepared, quick to be served and tastes excellent. The services was good and not intrusive. The Fixed Price dinner is a great deal The restaurant has a very relaxed environment with subdued colors and nice decoration, a bit upscale but not over the top. The crab cakes were very good, better than most others I have found in the bay area. i have tried 2 entrees and they were both very good, the duck confit and the pork tenderloin. What has kept me returning to Cuisine is the brunch. In the downtown Oakland area (City Center) I have not eaten at a good place for a nice weekend brunch and this is a needed addition. I have had the Eggs Benedict, Corned Beef Hash, Chiliquiles, and standard two egg breakfast. All were good but it was the Benedict that I most enjoyed. The chef knows how to poach an egg correctly and the sauce is not overdone. My kid and wife both agree.
The menu has a nice mix for both brunch and dinner, dinner has a Mediterranean flavor and the brunch has something that most everyone can find something to their taste. They do have a website and you can see the menus there.
