We took the class & it was excellent! The chef was very detailed and all 3 of us in class had a hands on experience. We made four items and all were delicious ~ added bonus was the coffee and wine!

This restaurant was probably our least favorite during the trip. The food was good but not memorable (I honestly can’t tell you what I had here). The staff was inconsistent. One minute we had one waiter, then we never saw him again at our table...More
