Great staff and experience.

Mar 23, 2015 Tom AZ, United States

Chef was very knowledgeable, easy to understand and staff was very helpful.

Oct 01, 2014 Lloyd AZ, United States

The appetizer course was very good. The staff is friendly.

Specifically, the food was poor. The chicken course was so dry and tough it was inedible. The filet was unseasoned and so overcooked and dry, it was difficult to cut.. The risotto was undercooked and crunchy. This is a culinary school so the food should have been perfect. The wines were ordinary andthe pairings did not compliment the dishes. An email to the chef went unanswered.

The food was cold

Jul 29, 2014 Lizette AZ, United States

Too many people in the class. Only 5 tables with 30 plus people in the class. Was not the hands-on cooking class as advertised. I actually left after about 45 minutes.
