CulinAerie: what do users think?


Ryan McGorty: Culinaerie is one of, if not, the most well-known recreational cooking school in the area. They offer a lot of different cooking instruction to aspiring cooking enthusiasts of all different skill levels. They have an online calendar that shows which classes are available and when. The classes book fast, so be ready to book if you see one you like. You can take individual classes on a class-by-class interest basis, or participate in a series of classes designed to improve your skills through a structured course. If you want to take a knife skills class, learn how to make Thai food, or even make tapas, they have a wide offering of options. The actual location consists of two instruction kitchens, with one being significantly larger than the other. The instructor leads the class through the cooking demonstration and there are overhead TVs and assistants in the room to help in case you need it. The instructor usually walks around while you are cooking/preparing food to give you tips. I went here for a date night cooking class and we had a very good experience. We learned a new recipe which we’ve cooked on our own at home. It is pretty expensive, but it made for a great experience.

Michael Alexander: We came here for my fiancé’s employer’s Christmas party. It was a fantastic! I love to cook and pursue it as a serious hobby. The instructor was great. She was patient with those who did not know techniques and gave pointers to those of us with working culinary knowledge. I will be planning a family function here in future.

M. Marzulla: We did the "Date Night: Craft Cocktails & Small Plates from Mexico City" with Eliza Gonzalez and it was fantastic! The instructions were easy to follow and the dishes were delicious! It was fun learning how to make the cocktails as well, and both instructors were super friendly and helpful! I definitely recommend signing up for one of the date night courses, it turned out to be one of the best dates we have had in a while!

Joanna Claustro: Attended a daytime class with my husband and we both had a wonderful time. The class is well organized and the menu was easy to follow -- which means we can try it again at home! The wine pairings were great (and constantly refilled!) and we were impressed by how delicious the meal turned out. We felt like professionals! We can't wait to return for another class!

The Cosmetology Coach: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueI have just completed my first session of the Beginner's Series with Chef Susan Holt. I will forever use my knife the Chef way. My Wonter Vegetable Gratin was to die for....OMG...can't wait for the next session. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us.
Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful words! It was such a pleasure to have you in class, and we look forward to seeing you next week!

Mark H: We are extremely lucky to have CulinAerie here in DC. I've taken two courses--knife skills with Susan Holt, and four fabulous fish with Wendi James--and both were superb. Excellently designed, organized, and executed, with no shortage of humor and constant helpfulness. I came as a total novice and the combination of practical kitchen skills and great recipes has given me confidence to start making some of the dishes I so enjoy when made by the pros. Looking forward to the next one!

Brittany Gerig Campbell: We had a fantastic experience at the couples cooking and wine pairing class. High quality food, helpful assistants, and an instructor who was a former chef and really knew her stuff. Wine was free-flowing and we never felt rushed. Would definitely come back!

Gerrit Davis: This is a high quality service for a high quality price. I've had two really good experiences here. One suggestion (and reason for 3 stars instead of 5): do not buy a gift certificate to use if you will be in the area for less than a year. Class availability (especially in the winter) is *extremely* limited due to demand. Despite this fact, and even if your scheduled classes are cancelled, CulinAerie sticks to a rigid policy of no refunds on gift certificates.

Amanda Burkholder: We took a bread making class at CulinAerie and had a blast! The teacher was knowledgeable and clear. We made four different kinds of bread and got to take it home. The class took about three hours, which included instruction, mixing, kneading, and baking the bread. They served complimentary wine, coffee and tea during the class which was a great touch. We will definitely take a class from CulinAerie again!

Vanessa: Took a french macaron class over the weekend. It was actually a really fun experience! The macarons came out so much better than I anticipated! I thought for sure we would bomb the recipe. What makes this experience fun is sitting at the same table with fun friendly people :) The chef was good, though a bit curt. The staff that was helping was really nice. I would definitely come back to do this again. Great date night idea, or something fun to do with friends.

Cozymeal Cooking Classes: what do users think?


Valerie Damond: Last night twelve members of my family experienced a truly remarkable Spanish dinner. Chef Greg presented us with a very relaxing and utterly delicious meal. Every course was beautifully displayed and clearly constructed with the best ingredients. He and his helper served us and left the kitchen immaculate. If you would like to experience an expertly crafted Spanish cuisine, I highly recommend Chef Greg.

D H: I had my Cozymeal event today. I have never participated in an online cooking class before, and I must say it was great! My daughter and I took the class making the Chinese dumplings with Chef Li. Chef Li was great and while making the recipes really gave good information on the Chinese culture and the different types of substitutions to use in the event you are not able to get a specific ingredient. She made suggestions regarding kitchen utensils and made sure that all of us were on track with her during her instruction. My only difficulty was with the recipes being in grams and not in US measurements. It would be nice to have both listed. I live in a very rural area and this option of online cooking classes is such a welcome experience. I would definitely take another class!!

Benjamin Bowden: Really enjoyed having Chef Tiffany cook for my girlfriend and me. Great food, great conversation, and a generally excellent evening. One note: she arrived 45 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time, when nobody was home. Her early arrival was a positive, as the meal took a few hours to prepare, but Cozymeal should communicate better with the clients about true arrival time. Bottom line: Tiffany provided an excellent French meal, all cooked from scratch, with fresh ingredients. Moreover, there were leftovers! Really looking forward to my next Cozymeal experience.

Alison Ponzi: We had an evening full of freshly made pasta, bruschetta, and bread pudding with Chef Tiffany. I bought a KitchenAid mixer last year with the pasta attachment, and she was open to teaching me how to use it. She also worked with us on our likes/dislikes allowing us to choose a different appetizer. All in all it was a successful night with great food, company, and conversation.

Grace Morrissey: I loved the class. Chef Li's technique was easy to understand. I just need to practice more. I am making the dumplings again this week. They were delicious. The cabbage salad won a big spot in my heart..., I will make it often. Looking forward to do another class with Chef Li

Steven Sacks: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMy girlfriend and I took the Festival of Indian Flavor with Chef Manjiri. It was such a wonderful experience - she clearly explained the agenda for the class, told us about herself, explained all the ingredients, and then helped us through all four recipes with both laughter and fun. What a great time!

Theano Kampani: Really enjoyed having Chef Greg cook for my husband and me. Great food, and great conversation!We highly recommend Chef Greg and his Spanish dishes. The star of the menu was the dessert for us :)

Kathleen Norwood: This was a wonderful experience. Chef Gustavo was a delightful host and instructor He shared knife and preparation tips as well as the history of the food. The food was muy rico and we came away with many tips to make prep easier and food tastier for making a yummy paella as well as other dishes. Chef Gustavo created a welcoming, warm and relaxed evening. Thank you, Chef Gutavo!

Jeanne Liu: We took the Festival of Indian Flavors class with Chef Manjiri and it was wonderful! She explained everything and her recipe was fast and not intimidating. What we made was so delicious and I can't wait to try out one of her other classes. Do not hesitate to book one of Chef Manjiri's classes!

Niki Holmes: We had an amazing experience with Chef Judith. Her recipes were easy; we had great company; and the Chef taught us some very useful techniques. --Plus--The food tasted so delicious!

Cookology Culinary School: what do users think?


Deserae P.: It was a pleasant experience. I did a dinner adult class. The entree item was shrimp risotto. I personally do not cook that much and the chef instructor made me feel great! He explained the only difference of us the professional and they cook over and over. He explained how properly cut and how to add your personal touch. I really felt confident after class. For adults you could get some nice rose. It all was very nice. I would so come again.

T. Pope: Wow. This was a great experience for my daughter. She got to go hands on and be taught and guided by trained chefs. You just don't get that from youtube videos.

Eleatia Goines: Chef Dave was great! Had patience with the newbies and gave good explanation about the meal prep. Knife lesson, seasoning your food, quick meal plan, and meat selection was a plus. The outcome of today's lesson was great. Not great as Dave but after today's lesson, he gave me the confidence to start making meals with fresh ingredients. #Dave #Tosada Thanks E

john yembrick: We purchased a certificate for a Cookology kids birthday party at our preschool auction on May 6, 2021. Our daughter’s birthday is May 4. When we contacted them on April 18 to book the party, I noticed that it expired on April 1, 2022. We contacted them by email asking if they would please still honor their donation to the preschool, even though we were a little late in contacting them, and our daughter’s birthday happened after the expiration. They replied asking for the certificate and how old my daughter was. After several follow up emails and two voice messages, their manager, Kori, called me on May 4, my daughter’s actual birthday, to say she regrettably could not honor it. I was surprised they wouldn’t be more flexible. Kori offered to redeem the certificate, but would still charge us $317 for a service fee not referenced on the certificate and for the increase in food cost. This was supposed to be a donation, not a break even endeavor. If you don't want to give, then don't. I told the manager I needed to consult with my wife, as I was very disappointed in the conversation, tone and poor customer service from this company. My wife called back to ask some clarifying questions, as she still wanted to have the party there, shortly after and was treated very poorly by Kori, who raised her voice and belittled her. I understand we contacted them after the certificate expired. That’s on us, but that is no excuse for the abysmal treatment. At the end of the day, this was supposed to be a fun birthday cooking class for kindergarteners from a preschool donation. We were really looking forward to it. Instead it turned into a contentious battle. My six-year-old daughter thought she was having her birthday party at Cookology, but we will never patron there. Just be nice. It's not hard.
Response: Wow. This is not at all what happened. We contacted you several times—from April 18 to today—we the have the emails to prove it. Unfortunately what we explained today was the value of the party was no longer the cost for the party. Prices for food and labor have skyrocketed and we simply asked if they could cover the difference which was $318. The value of the silent auction was $350 for a party of 10 kids, which they only donated $250. Making their outlay for the party only $568, where our prices start for that age group start at $65 per person. So for 10 kids they still were getting a discount. We explained so many times that we needed to cover expenses. We were not making money off of this party. We did everything we could but were met with very angry individuals who could not see our logic or reasoning.

Bryan Schonhaut: I've gone here twice - both times I did the cake decorating class and both times have been very enjoyable. Depending on the day, you may be paired with only a couple other people or 15, really depends on how popular the course is. Both times I had a solid instructor, the instructor for the smaller class was definitely more attentive but, that's understandable given the second class had closer to 15 people attending. I liked that they had a bar where you could get drinks while you cooked and the atmosphere was very laid back, fun and casual. Only grievance I have is the price. For the cake class, it was $65 and it tends to vary greatly depending on what class you're attending and what you're making. That being said, at this price, it's definitely more of a special occasion type event. That being said, it was still a ton of fun.

Jada M: Service was horrible, the instructor teaching us had limited communication and was not paying attention to us. We had to make the macaroons by our selves. They were helping everyone one else but us ours didn’t come out good because they didn’t help us. She said our macaroons were perfect and took them out early causing them to mess up. The instructor was rude and short, seems like she did not want to be there we had limited amount of hands on instruction if you want hands on instruction this is not the class for you. They show once and get irritated when questions are asked. If you are a beginner this this institution is not good for you.
Response: You showed up 45 minutes late for your class. We made the mistake of allowing you to participate. Your girls were not at all interested nor did they participate nor did you participate. The chefs and sous chef had to pretty much do everything for you. It’s still confusing as to why you would even expect us to be able to do more than we did we basically took the class for you.

Ashley Whimpey: My partner and I attended the Early Valentine's Day Italian class and it was one of the TOP TEN best things I've done in my whole life. I have always been interested in cooking/baking, but never been particularly gifted at it. Having an entire professional kitchen as well as personal step-by-step guidance (plus wine...) made this so much fun we ended the night already looking at other classes to take. I cannot recommend this experience enough!

Emily Banks: I highly recommend Cookology virtual cooking classes! My local cooking classes were canceled due to the pandemic. I was in search of a semester type class where we learned the fundamentals of cooking over the course of a few weeks. The virtual Cookology Bootcamp was exactly what I was looking for- 4 weeks, twice a week, and you make a full meal by the end of the class. It was awesome, I learned so much, and my overall cooking has improved significantly. Chef Greg was very knowledgeable and patient, and I really liked that you could ask him questions as you cook. The customer service is excellent as well, I had some cooking related questions outside of class and they were always prompt to answer. I am looking forward to the second part of this virtual boot camp, and highly recommend Cookology to anyone looking to improve their cooking skills! You don't need to be local :)

Stephanie Safro: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueFun way to share an evening. Learned a few things. Made my meal and got to eat while we cooked and took the rest home. Chef Renee was a lot of fun. Food was good. Location was easy to get to with Orange line Metro. We were able to remain socially distanced for others who took same class. Would go there again.

Roshy K: I booked a Halloween treats making class for my kiddies (ages 10 and 5) on Halloween day, and loved everything about the class! My kids got to make whoopie pies, hot cocoa, and pumpkin shaped rice krispy treats. I enjoyed that each family's table was spaced out and the ingredients were all pre-measured out and ready for us. The chef instructor went at the perfect speed and ensured all were following along before moving along to the next step. And, the treats turned out super delicious!! We even had some extra whoopie pie batter that we were able to take home with us. My children have been asking to return ever since.

Sunflower Bakery: what do users think?


Jules Polonetsky: Lovely baked items created by very special people. Spend your money and support independence and training for the employees. Gluten free options available.

Keli Dimari: I'm truly delighted at Sunflower Bakery's mission; to me, it's admirable that people try to be kind and provide the opportunity for others to grow and refine a skill, and I understand that making a place like this bakery requires a lot of guts and a ton of grit to achieve. Even for a place with a mission, if their food isn't amazing, it isn't enough. The main reason I went today was to see if it was tasty...if it was really delicious and amazing, because all the good intent in the world doesn't make food more tasty, and I have a severely-dairy-allergic (needs epi pen) 2-year-old that I was desperately trying to find a genuinely tasty birthday cake for. I was hoping this bakery would be yummy enough that it could become the bakery I get stuff from, for my extremely allergic and pretty durn picky kiddo. I purchased several items, just to get a baseline of things. It is a great little bakery, with a ton of but free, dairy free, and vegan options. The lemon bars and chocolate crackle cookie are excellent; I tested one chocolate cookie in my car, at a stoplight, and then pulled over at a gas station to eat four more. The chocolate cracked cookies are that good. They are extremely chocolatey, really decadent, like a brownie corners on the outside of the cookie, and the middle of the softest brownie ever on the inside of the cookie....if it weren't for the calorie count, I could polish off the whole container by myself. These are the best soft chocolate cookies I've ever had. There were so few left, I migrated them to a ziplock bag to save space. There were about thrice as many a few hours ago. They are perfect for coffee or tea. The lemon bars are also beautifully balanced; I can totally see why they are a crowd favorite. It has a thin golden brown crust that's a tiny bit chewy and very crumbly, and a really good filling. Unlike regular store-bought, or even those found at most restaurants, the filling in these lemon bars was not overly sweet. I prefer my lemon bars a bit more tart, but I'm also the weirdo that tends to double the lemon and lemon zest in most recipes. It was really, really good. If you get one item from Sunflower Bakery, and you're not allergic to and rather like lemon, I would strongly recommend the lemon bars. The challah bread was light and fluffy and had a nice bounce to it, the tahini cookies are very crumbly but a bit salty (is that normal?), but had a good sesame flavor. The macarons were surprisingly really good, considering the filling had no dairy at all. If you didn't tell me it had no dairy, I couldn't have told you there was anything unusual; well flavored, nice chewy texture, they were beautiful and there were four of each flavor. I loved them quite a bit. The berry lemon loaf was flavorful but a bit too sweet, and not enough lemon....would've liked a little more lemon zest or a little more berry flavor. Overall was just sweet and sort of average; not bad, because fresh baked goods are generally delicious....but it could be so much more, you know? I wish it were more flavorful. I wouldn't mind if they bumped up the price by a bit or reduced the size, if it had more flavor. The only thing I got that I really didn't like was the Almond Berry cake. For me, personally, it was way too sweet/overly sugary and didn't taste enough like almond or berries. They needed to intensify one or both flavors, and could probably cut the sugar in the icing by half. As it was, it was too in-your-face-sugar-coma-ish. We didn't finish it and ended up crumbling bits of the cake into homemade ice-cream...(we just reduced the sugar in the ice-cream recipe, instead). However, that could just be me....maybe that cake is intended for young kids and just had a lot of sugar in it. I don't know. It seemed sort of out of place compared to the tastes and textures of the other items I got. Overall, loved the bakery and definitely will go back again. This is definitely the bakery I'm getting the birthday cake from, and I'm sure we will be back many more times before and after.

Barbi Wood: Found this bakery through a blog recommendation and I'm so glad I did. I live in Kansas and had my order plus two other orders shipped to Missouri and Tennessee. Everything was great from beginning to end. Ordering online was super easy, all three shipments arrived on time and in great shape. The cookies are delicious!!! I'm very pleased with my purchases.

Jack Luxemburg: Though out of the way in an industrial part of Rockville, it is worth the trip. The baked goods are excellent even if the selection is somewhat limited. That the bakery is also a training and employment center for people with disabilities makes buying there doubly good. There are a range of products that are gluten free, vegetarian and maybe vegan.

Michael Shuman: Very good pastries and supporting a good cause.

Sydnye White: Sunflower Bakery nailed the individually wrapped treats for the school faculty and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week. Muffins on Tuesday and cute cookies on Wednesday.

Mary Eva RB: I placed an order through their website, and It came perfectly and delicious.I recommend them, not only because the bakery goods also because their mission.

Tatiana Harris: Love baking there so much fun.

Michael Palan: Excellent bakery with a great mission full of heart and deliciousness. It was Purim and needed hamantaschen, and luckily I stumbled upon Sunflower Bakery. Their ‘taschen were super soft and super yummy. They were better than my mother-in-law’s homemade ones. Shhhh don’t tell her. Can’t wait to return to try something new!

Anthony Schweiss: Amazing food and amazing people.! Give it a try

Seylou Bakery: what do users think?


Da-Wang Wu: First time buying from this bakery. The cheese scone and croissant were pretty good, but we didn’t enjoy the bird bread that much. I guess people who like nutty texture might enjoy it more. I ordered mocha, and the staff told me that I couldn’t adjust the level of sweetness because they used chocolate milk to make the mocha, which was a bit weird for me. Would look forward to trying some other breads in the future since they actually look pretty good!

Vivian Lu: This is a small local bakery, so I'm glad that we visited. Everyone was very nice. With that being said, I'm not convinced that whole grain works well for all baked goods, and I can't recommend stopping by. We had the croissant and although the crust looked properly flaky, it had the soft, wet consistency of under-baked bread inside. The quality of the bread also seems to vary day by day. The bread is good when it's good, but again, wet and under-baked on bad days.

dan altman: I really enjoy stopping by to buy bread when I'm in DC. It's great that they mill their own flour which is locally grown in some cases. A dough made with lots of water and natural leaven will require intense heat to help the bread rise. This can cause a slightly burnt crust, which I like. The reason for the 3 stars is that the bread can be inconsistent in terms of proofing or timing to be baked. This causes the dough to callapse creating pockets at the top of the bread and a dense more doughy bottom. Also, there doesn't seem to be any way to give feedback if you don't live local, so they can work on remedying the problem. I would hope for better at these prices. I think the owner may be one of the best bread bakers anywhere, but he has other doing the baking now. I will keep visiting Seylou Bakery, but next time ask they cut the loaf before buying. Hopefully they won't have a problem with my request.

Michelle Keller: Gorgeous bakery in a modern space. I had the buckwheat strawberry muffin, which was delicious. Excellent crumb, not too dense, with whole strawberries baked right in. I also had the vegetable frittata. The texture was divine, light and airy.

Christine S: Small local bakeries are all the hype nowadays, so I’d add Seylou to your list if you’re a fan of whole grain pastries and sourdough. I’m a croissant fiend, so I had to try their whole wheat almond croissant. Certainly one of the more unique croissants I’ve ever tried– if you’re expecting a flaky and buttery croissant, you won’t find it here. If you’re looking for a seemingly healthier and heartier croissant, then Seylou is for you. They could have done a better job with the frangipane filling. I also tried their savory monkey bread with spicy peppers and enjoyed the light sourdough flavor.

Ammar El-Taher: The freshness of their bakery, the mouth blowing taste & the consistency they provide each & every time you eat there is unmatchable. One great breakfast, coffee & tea place the you shouldn't miss

Mark Blanchard: Seylou more like Fail-ou. Ok I'll start with the staff. They're genuinely super nice and professional, which gets this cafe a second star. The food also looks beautiful. The rest though? Went there with a few friends and we tried several items (6 food items and coffees). Not exaggerating, but we all took a sip of the coffee and looked at each other like "this coffee is disgusting". Ok that happens, maybe a bad batch of coffee? We then dove into the pastries (6 of them). 4 of the pastries were inedible, and the other 2, we ended up eating them, but they were average at best. We literally threw out 4 pastries because they were that awful. I'm not sure who all is going to Seylou and giving it 4 and 5 stars, but have you been to other bakeries in DC? Or are we comparing to gas station pastries? Seriously we tried 6 items, and we literally dumped 4 of these pastries in the trash can. Oh, and 1 more thing... The pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) is whole wheat. What!!!!!! I'm not eating a croissant to be healthy, I don't need it to be whole wheat. Plus you should really be clear that it's whole wheat, because it tastes pretty awful. In short, the staff is absolutely nice, but the food... just... Don't.

Nicole C: Absolutely loved the almond croissant! It had the perfect balance of sweetness. The aromatics and flavor of almond was very apparent. There was also a bit of a body to the croissant that I've never encountered before at other bakeries. Definitely would recommend it!

Breana's Toast: I´ve visited renowned bakeries all over the world and Seylou offers hands down the best bread and pastries I´ve ever had. You can taste the organic locally sourced grain in every single bite! Anyone who lives in the DC area is fortunate to have this piece of grain heaven nearby... And for anyone skeptical about their deep colored loaves, let me assure you that nothing is burnt, everything is baked to perfection. Can´t wait to be back for more!

Mark Woodward: In my view Seylou is the best bakery in the US. I mean that seriously. Everything is freshly milled whole grain and naturally leavened, which is how I like my bread. Seylou entirely disproves the perception that such breads can only be bricks. The quality is the same or better than from places that use bread flour or high extraction flour, and the bread and pastries are both more flavorful and more nutritious. I also appreciate that Seylou supports local farmers, not just by buying and using their wheat and rye, but also by turning other crops (such as buckwheat), which are important parts of organic grain crop rotation, into both breads and delicious pastries. Seylou has been inspirational to me in my own bread baking. 😀

Sur La Table: what do users think?


Ahmed Shehata: One of the worst decisions I made in 2021 was buying an Espresso machine from Sur La Table. The machine is Espressione Concierge and is pictured below. Slightly after two months of receiving the machine, it stopped working and fell totally apart. Contacted Sur La Table and they told me to call the vendor. Called the vendor and they refused to even replace it and told me I should have bought the warranty. I am disappointed that Sur La Table is involved in selling such lousy products that I would have never bought if it was sold somewhere else. Also disappointed in the lack of accountability from Sur La Table and from the vendor and the very poor customer service. Moving forward, I will think many times before stepping a foot in a Sur La Table store or buying anything from their website.

Conrad Eisen: I ordered a stockpot online for store pickup which had a very sizeable gouge in the cooking surface. I was not told I would need a photo ID to pickup the order. Then when I tried to return the defective product the manager was quite rude in trying to figure out how to perform the return since I made the purchase online. Save the money and shop at amazon.

Stella Buckmaster-West: My friends and I went in to this location today. The staff made it clear we weren’t welcome. My friends even purchased a few things and as we were chatting and leaving the staff still tried to make us feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Too bad the Williams and Sonoma is closing in this mall, because everyone should go there instead.

Justine D: I recently visited the Sur La Table in Tysons Galleria to address an issue I had with my ScanPan. The manager was completely rude and basically told me that all the issues were due to how I used my ScanPan. She told me ScanPan recommends not to cook with olive oil and not to use metal utensils on the pan. Everything she said was absurd and opposite to what ScanPan broadcasts on their website. In fact, ScanPan recommends using olive oil and rapeseed and boasts that metal utensils are OK on their pans. She completely lack customer service skills so it's perplexing she is in the job she is in. In fact, I got a few hands-on-the-hip-I-don't-belive-you-useless-mask-under-the-chin-eye-rolls when I called her out on her absurd declarations and accusatory statements. ScanPan is a solid product and Sur La Table is typically a wonderful store. With a store completely empty and most stores still reeling from the pandemic, it probably is not a good idea to chase away the few customers they had that day.

Brendon Thomas: I like to frequent the Tysons SLT and generally find the store to be a little more practical for the home cook. My only complaint has been the pushiness of sales folks recently which hasn't been my usual experience. During my last visit, an older dude who worked here ignored my SO as she walked in ahead of me and proceeded to bother me multiple times around the store. Perhaps management is just being pushed to make sales in Covid19 times but this isn't the experience I come here for.

Amber Heard: Very nice place and despite the location being in upper end Tysons Galleria, it's very reasonably priced (competitive with prices I saw on Amazon). The sales person was very nice and helpful without hovering. She made me a latte and gave me some helpful baking tips! I could get lost in this place but luckily I was on a schedule 😉

Matthew: Excellent array of items. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I was looking for a new coffee machine that also did cappachino and lattes as well as froth milk. I was shown several options, explained in depth how they work, and even got to taste drinks made by the machines I am considering to purchase. Still debating on which machine I want but certainly will be back to this location to purchase.

Nora D.: Didn't find what I was looking for, but did find this curious item. Who's heard of a bacon bin before?

Joe Darden: Fast, friendly and professional service. This location does not have a kitchen for the famous cooking classes. This location is clean, easy to navigate and well stocked. This is the place for serious cooking tools. Everything the have is practical, and improves your ability to make art in the kitchen. They stay away from gadgetry that doesn’t significantly improve your craft.

E. O. Pederson: The best general kitchen and cooking store in the DC area, Sur la Table at Tyson's Galleria is our go-to place when we need kitchen items for ourselves or for gifts. Their selection of kitchen and serving items is unmatched both for variety and for quality in the Washington area. Watching Sur la Table sale ads it is often possible to get superior quality items at very good prices. The staff are usually superb, knowledgable and helpful. They offer demonstrations of unusual products and cooking classes. Excellent store!

Hill's Kitchen: what do users think?


Jessica McNutt: I love, love, love, love, love this shop. When I visit, I feel like family. The staff is wonderful, and knowledgeable and amazingly friendly and supportive. What's more, they sell high quality and unique products. This is the only place I'll ever go for all my kitchen needs. If you haven't had a chance to visit Hill's, you are missing out.

Katharine Dixon: Today we bought a Chef's knife. Great store with a nicely curated selection of all things kitchen. Very very much appreciated expertise and help in choosing the knife.

Felicia Adkins: What a great little store. It may look small from the outside but they have a lot of very good quality items in there. And surprisingly fun kitchen finds like state shaped epicurean cutting boards and capital shaped cookie cutters knowledgeable and friendly staff to help you with suggestions. Everything from spices and seasonings to pans and quality knives. What a fantastic local business!

Sam Odle: Excellent selection of kitchen related goods for how small it is. Definitely worth stopping in if you’re looking for something or need a gift.

J Haus: I love this store!! They have pretty much anything you could need as a home cook. They have a great selection of cookbooks, too. The staff are super helpful and friendly.

Barbara Bonessa: Leah Daniels is very helpful and knowledgeable, and has a wonderful shop filled with all things kitchen.

Gabriel Charles Tyler: I’m still relatively new to the DMV area, so I’m always excited to explore new neighborhoods and shops. My friend raves about Hill’s Kitchen, and now I know why! It’s a small space, but it’s quaint and is filled with so many kitchen and household items that you probably wouldn’t find anywhere else. On top of that, the staff members at Hill’s Kitchen exude positivity. And they’re always willing to help you find just the item you’re looking for. For example, all I knew was that I needed a cutting board that I saw at a friend’s house with a “m” on it. The team member who jumped in to assist me immediately knew what I was talking about and she made the cutting board appear like magic. She even went as far to explain to me the price differences. I’m so impressed with the selection and the quality of service! This shop will definitely be at the top of my list from now on.

Meredith Purser: Great store! Leah is always friendly and helpful, and she keeps her store stocked with all the basic (and many not-so-basic) kitchen needs and seasonal desires.

dipika: Hill's Kitchen seems to be an important store to the local community, and I love that the owners are friendly with people in the neighborhood! They carry a wide range of products that make me super excited to decorate my kitchen. I'm so glad this place exists, and just wish some of the staple items were a bit less expensive.

Sarah Snoots: Awesome, awesome, awesome experience from start to finish. Leah is so knowledgeable about every single item in her store and was exceptionally patient while I figured out what type of knives I was looking for. Her expertise and clear explanations helped me really narrow down my options. I look forward to purchasing more cookware in the future because I know —without a doubt— that I can ask Leah and get straight answers. She had all of them! Additionally, she took numerous COVID precautions, including requiring masks covering the nose and mouth of all customers, limiting the number of customers to four (not four “groups” ie households, but four people— full stop.), maintaining an appropriate distance, and ensuring each customer used hand sanitizer upon entering. Highly recommend a trip Hill’s Kitchen for anyone who spends time in a kitchen or home. So. Anyone reading this! Check it out.

Ladurée: what do users think?


David Frank: They have a wide variety of pastries and macarons. I love the different flavors, many of which are unique. They have croissant-based sandwiches for lunch and a nice tea service, also with a wide variety of options that you can't find elsewhere. I had a pot of tea which makes about three cups worth (my only suggestion would be to provide more tea). The cafe is decorated nicely and you would think your in a tea shop in Paris.

Kiara C: Loved everything about this place. The ambiance, the large menu selection, the drinks…everything was just fabulous! The staff is very attentive to your needs and ensuring you have a good time. I can’t wait to go back! I ordered the Croque Monsieur and the Ladurée champagne cocktail. Can’t wait to try the other items.
Response: Hello Kiara, thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback very much and hope to see you back soon!

Nova Au: It was Saturday and the place was busy, and looked like they’re short-staffed (not sure), but I think the staff members did their best to serve us. We didn’t have to wait so long for food, and they never gave us dirty look for taking tons of pics xD

Therese Sipes: The hot chocolate is 10 out of 10 stars! The Elysee, éclair, practically every other dessert was stellar, except the “cake” - it’s chocolate loaf bread and was dry and unimpressive. Eat loaf bread at Starbucks and stick to the all-star macarons here!

Devin Boe: Exquisite (and expensive). I have only tried the pastries and confections here, but so far everything I have sampled has been phenomenal. Excellent service at the counter, and their take-away boxes are very cute and stylish. I now know why the Maison Laduree has such an outstanding reputation for their sweets and desserts! Truly world-class, but very pricey.

Fahad Aqeel: Delicious pastries and coffee. They service was a bit pushy and the wait to sit is always long.
Response: Hello Fahad, thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback very much and hope to see you back soon!

Mark Blanchard: Beautiful place and gorgeous desserts. Macarons are delicious, but some of the other desserts aren't authentically French.
Response: Hello Mark, thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback very much and hope to see you back soon!

Hadji Beye: French patisserie is one of the best in the world ( if not simply the best). If you want to taste paradise then go try Laduree because they make the best of what French Bakery offers. There isn't too much sugar in their bakery as opposed to store bought bakery. You taste the natural ingredients used to bake. Just exceptional!!!!

Golden Eye: Cute overload! Cost overload as well - but worth the visit! Nice little pastries, drinks and light lunch items.

Mishal Greenwood: Service was quick and friendly! The macarons are always delicious from Laduree ♥️

PAUL Farragut North: what do users think?


Héctor Arduz: Between medical appointments I took my wife to have breakfast. My wife ordered eggs Benedict w/avocado. The avocado wasn’t ripe. In fact it was hard and tough. Inedible. Sorry to report this. I do love the pastries, but will never again order something more complex, like Eggs Benedict chez Paul, Again… pity. Feeling disappointed

J Acharya: I got 3 pastries and a coffee. Everything was fresh and delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try their sandwiches and salads.

Celine Aka-Koffi: The mille-feuilles (napoleon) is fresh and tasty. We enjoyed chamomile and mint tea on a cold spring afternoon. Service was excellent.

Alok Sinha: Want to give a shout out to this place. I came in a few minutes before they were about to close and the staff were so helpful in getting me some last second pastries. I ordered a cheese danish and a few other pastries. They were all delicious. The prices were fair. Would recommend stopping by here for a pleasant dessert.

Nitzan Ainemer: Great french boulangerie! The service was great, we’ve ordered two special breakfast, including bread, butter, jam, eggs benedict, coffee and orange juice for 50$ total, with taxes. The food was great! Would recommend!

Jamie K: I thought PAUL was a European only place til I moved to dc and it still gives me those vibes, except with american efficiency. Plus, I think PAUL has the best black coffee in the city. And the pasties are all ::chefs kiss:: but don’t miss the Gourmandise or if you like citrus, the citrus tart.

Kaiser Baam: Honestly the seating outside with a good cup of coffee and a three layer moose and relaxing great place to relax and converse with friends. The staff are wonderful. Coffees good.

anthony danks: Slowly Paul's is opening up It has a few customers and weekends people arrive for take out. It's still expensive and has serious competition for pastries by je ne sais quoi. There sandwiches are good as is their bread but they could be better filled for the price. The Napoleon is big and taste also palmera my favourites. The Croke missure is good looking but expensive and not as taste as I was expecting. Still a good location to sit outside and watch lack of traffic or a 20 veichel car cade of the president coming back from McDonald's. Relaxing atmosphere and helpful service doing everything to please.

mustafa Suwaylih: Amazing bakery. I had the chocolate croissant. It was perfect. Paul always surprise us with they amazing decorations. It was the first time I try the macaron and the taste wasn’t as I expected. It was bigger than the normal size. My friend who knows the taste of the macaron said it was great.

Azza T: Ordered omelette and chocolate deluxe croissant. Their latte was very good! Not a busy place and friendly employees.

Northern Virginia Community College - Annandale Campus: what do users think?


Rimon Siga: Safe place to study, there was an upright piano in the cafeteria building that you can play anytime, the campus police are super friendly, administrator was so helpful, the area around was best to walk around if you like to spend time with friends, and I love the lake at the front of the cafeteria that's the beautiful one.

Mik: Most people on the reviews are unhappy about the school's tuition prices. I honestly don't have much knowledge about price within the U.S higher education system (was on a full financial aid) but, apart from the price topic NOVA is a great school! First the quality of education is top notch. Second almost all the professors and advisors I've worked with were very supportive and caring for students' success. Third as long as you made the most use of them NOVA's got plenty of free and available state of the art high quality resources to help students succeed and have a great college experience. Library, tutoring centers, labs, open computer labs, student life, clubs, bookstores, cafes, lounges, etc, and even internship career connections! On top of all that you get to transfer to any four year college of your choice while holding an associate degree or some certificate which comes as beneficial for your internship or part time job. NOVA's campus environment and physical area is equivalent to a university. It's a wonderful school for a community college! SN: It's the second largest and one of the top community colleges in the country.

Patrick Cornelissen: This is by far one of the worst community colleges in the nation. Not so specific to location as I’ve attended Annandale, Alexandria, and Woodbridge and they were all inadequate and unacceptable. I have had a few good professors but overall the advisor office is terrible but I don’t really blame the advisors. It’s mostly higher ups that are to blame for the subpar conditions. And lastly if you’re planning on taking courses part time and working part time just don’t do it because they retire their classes way too early and update the descriptions so that it’s virtually impossible to attain or even let alone sustain a degree from here. At best they get a negative 2 out of 10. They’re not in it for the interests of their students they only care about the schools budget. When the school is centered around finances than the education being provided then it’s clear what it says about the school system and I must admit it speaks volumes. Simply put, terrible. TL; DR: terrible school, do not come here

Chris D: Its tough to give this place a 1 star, because a few of the professors are good. But most of them are in it for the money, and dont out anything into the class. Online classes have been a joke by most of the professors this summer. Some of the assignments aren't graded for like a month after you complete them. No response to emails, and so forth. The high level deans are awesome and caring. But the assistant deans are buddies with the professors, so nothing gets done by them when you ask for assistance.

Pearline Reid: This is the worst community College in the universe. They have the worst Lecturers . The entire university is very racist and of-course they do absolutely nothing when you report any racial incidents. I gave them a one out of 5 star and to be honest they don't deserve not even 0.01 of that star . Yes it's that horrible!!!!

Antonio Bae: Northern Virginia Community College, a.k.a. NOVA, is one of the best great college for students who want to save tuition. Plus, they can have more time to think their appropriate major in here. For foreign students, NOVA’s ESL program is very well organized and popular so that you can experience the ethnic diversity in here.

Douglas Mairena: Plenty of parking. People in offices very helpful. Beautiful campus, nice bookstore.

Jesus Mejias Garcia: Great college that offers associate degrees to those pursuing careers in sciences, social sciences, and technology. They also offer certificates after completing certain programs.

Mahmood Qadri (MahmoodQadriVirginia): This college campus has as many student as a large university. Many campuses all over 5 counties of Northern Virginia. Many good choices of many subjects to learn.

Jennifer Lathrop: You couldn't pay me to attend NOVA! My high school child is trying to sign up for a dual enrollment class through Nova & they have been giving me the run around for months. No one knows what the other is doing & no one is helpful. "Difficult to work with" is an understatement. They are downright rude. There is no way I would recommend this school to ANYONE. I have spent days upon days trying to confirm that she is signed up for the class but each person tells me a different story. Terrible.

Leanne M: Wow, this is a beautiful place to eat and the entire restaurant is gorgeous on the inside, decorated so interestingly. We were left in awe. The service was very good in both the restaurant and the pastry shop! They do their job well despite how busy it can get! The food is delicious and the students who prepare it are courteous. Prices are great for what you get!
Response: Thank you for your kind feedback and for coming in to try our restaurants! We love hearing from our customers and are thrilled to know when they had a great experience dining with us. Our menus change every 10 weeks, so make sure to come back soon and sample our new dishes! The WHC family and the students really appreciate your business and review!

Jaye McNeil: Great service. Good selection. Beautiful atmosphere. Great parking. A wonderful experience.

Kristi Aurelien: We went for an open house tour today and it was wonderful. The staff are knowledgeable and professional and the school itself seems very well run.

Jil Patterson: Really good food! Excellent service! Students were great!

Katherine Lynn: Went there for a lovely post wedding family dinner. Food was top of the line! We got a variety of entree’s and appetizers and not one disappointed. A must visit if you want gourmet food for reasonable prices. The interior is breathtaking and definitely sets a relaxing mood.

Jason Hightower: The restaurant school serves delicious food and beverages. Whether for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Gourmet food right outside your front doors and within your reach. I've had many of their fine cuisine and I've always enjoyed them. Pastries made fresh daily. Birthday cakes made to order along with other baked treats. Open to the public of course, for all to enjoy the selection of food and beverages. If you like, you can have dinner Tuesday through Saturday after you make a reservation. Dinner is served in their spacious courtyard setting along with three other dining sections where you can enjoy your gourmet meals in a friendly and enjoyable setting. Cocktails also served in the bar section served by a courteous staff. Dinner parties are also a service provided for our customers. Kindly contact front desk for reservations either for dinner or party gatherings for your family or friends. Perhaps for other social gatherings of another nature. Come see for yourselves.
Response: Thanks so much, Jason!

Andrew McKenty: We attended a Chocolate Truffle Workshop as an office outing to Walnut Hill and it exceeded our expectations! It was a great mix of fun and easy-going environment with learning and hands on work. We were all surprised at how many truffles we were able to make. Plenty for everyone to take home, a large box to share with the office, and some to enjoy while we were making them. The staff was very kind, fun, and professional. Very welcoming. The space is great! The kitchen was set up very conveniently, was incredibly clean and organized, and the outdoor bistro scene looked great! We would definitely recommend taking a class to others.
Response: Andrew - Thank you so much for your review and kind words. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the Chocolate Truffle Workshop. Look forward to having you join us again!

Nadira Lynch: Such a beautiful space to have an event. It's different rooms but this one was my favorite.

Val McLeod: Had an absolutely wonderful experience here last week. From the parking lot to the perfectly made slice of lemon meringue pie The Restaurant School was delightful. The student staff were polite and professional. Food was FANTASTIC! I'm still thinking about the smoked eggplant. Should have taken photos but gobbled up my food upon arrival.🤗🤗 This was my first visit but definitely not the last. A must-do experience in Philly.

For $12.95 each we enjoyed a delicious appetizer, entrée, dessert and coffee.

Michael Kurtz: I am new to Rockville and recently visited Sunflower for the first time after finding them through a Google search. I was looking for a Kosher bakery to buy something to bring to as a gift to a Kosher home. in addition to enjoying the best and most unique Hamantashen I have ever had, I was so impressed by the staff of young people. This was a truly “feel good” experience. Many thanks for the opportunity to support such a great community service. I look forward to indulging and trying new treats very soon

Seth Hoffman: This coffee shop is a diamond in the rough, difficult to find from the road but well worth it! Staff are friendly and helpful. They gave me a love of Chai Latte that I will never forget. Also pastries. Mmmm pastries.

Andrea Simhony: Amazing apple pie and pumpkin are my favorites. Delicious not too sweet. Melting in your mouth. Can’t go wrong with this place.

Diego Proano: Great little coffee shop inside the executive building with delicious baked goods. The staff is very friendly and caring. Stop by for a cup of coffee and a raspberry crumble!

Jake Klingman: I had a great time.I ordered a coffee and a rocky road.I also had brownie and sunflower swirl.I also had a raspberry bar.The food is great.The manager named Joey is very kind and the person behind the counter named Jake is so kind.

Aaron Bernardo: The restaurant is awesome and broad, the meals was delicious and the rates were very reasonable. fast, productive service and very personal waiters. I highly recommend this place.

Elliot White: It wasn't particularly obvious where it was from the road, but the baked goods were excellent, and the support they provide to the differently abled community is admirable. Will probably return, next time I am in the area.

Tammy Berman: Wonderful baked goods. Cute cafe. Overly friendly staff. Easy parking

Nayema jackson: No way to find the bakery and they had very little selection. Definitely not a real bakery just a shop that sells coffee.

Ellen Janeen: Tasty pastries! Cute little shop with a nice vibe. Friendly and helpful staff.

Michael Taylor: So much fun! Attended a party which included a class in making sushi. Learned some knife skills and prep skills, but really had fun doing it. Thanks to the chef for making it a night to remember. Although getting in and finding the place was difficult at first, it was worth it! Highly recommended!

Giddel Contreras: After doing the culinary program 10 years ago, I decided to go back to ICE and do the culinary management program. BIG waste of time and money. The instructors do not have the proper training to teach. Just because they have worked in the industry for many years, does not mean they can be teachers. This program was a disappointment to me.

Lenny Li: Great selection of classes. I've taken two recreational couples classes here and they make great dates. The sushi class was very popular and had 8 pairs of students (the max), which i thought was too many for a productive class. Every group was doing something different, so although we all got to roll the sushi, not everyone practiced slicing fish or making rice. We ended the class with a delicious group dinner and had plenty of leftover food to take home too! The duck class was less popular and only had three couples, the perfect amount. We got to do more and still had a great meal and food leftover to take home.

Siobhan P: Took the Healing Bowl recreational class with Chef Olivia last night and it was amazing! Definitely more hands on than i thought it would be but that made it even better. She is super knowledgeable on ALOT of things so if youre considering taking one of her classes, total do it!

Fabiana Luchini: For me ICE always delivered what I expected from the courses I signed up for.I like the open courses. The instructors are amazing, friendly, and patient.

Emily Brown: Difficult to find classes with space. My spouse and I registered for a class which got canceled a week prior. While we got a refund, Guest Relations wasn’t helpful in finding a resolution to future class participation. Very disappointed.

CS Mo: My wife and I took the basic knife skills class with Sue Gonsalves. Getting to the class was a little stressful because we were running a little late and it was hard, the first time, to figure out exactly where to go. However, the class itself was great! Sue is a fantastic teacher and she made the class delightful. I wouldn't say that I learned a lot, but I certainly refined some skills, and the class finally convinced my wife to give up the 5-6" knives that she preferred. We will definitely be back!

Unknown: Alright so I have a question and if anyone can answer this, it would be helpful. I just graduated highschool and I want to come to New York to go to This school. Is there like a campus I could live on or how does is work there.

Lindsey Coyle: Our class was great! The chefs were kind and encouraging, met everyone at their individual skill level, and gave all kinds of tips to make sure we could replicate the process at home. I've heard of some cooking classes where you go home still hungry, but that definitely wasn't the case here- we were completely full, and even went home with a few to go boxes! We'll definitely be looking at their calendar again soon!

Brian Small: I had booked a class over a month out only to have it canceled less than a week away. I had my godson taking a 3 hour train ride in to take the class for his birthday.

Vic Thoria: I wonder why there are so many bad reviews about this school. It's not as bad as I thought or as I read. Yes, I did have a bad impression at first because I was supposed to take four courses, now I'm taking three because of their carelessness. But that's the only problem I've encountered here. My professors are good. I read bad reviews about the financial aid also but there was no problem with my financial aid and everything went smoothly. Overall, this school is not so bad. I'll still be checking tho. Maybe I haven't seen the bad part of the school yet. Lol

Renee Woodley: I use their free tax services. The service was professional, the area was clean, and there were more than enough restrooms and vending machines for the use of the people.

Michael Lawrence: Need to fix track field. Always enjoy my time there though.

Percy Griffin: The tennis courts are in need of repair. But it's always sunny and and safe.

The only good thing you'll find about this school is the cheap tuition, some good professors if you can find the right ones. So far, I managed to have good ones. And a few nice students along the way. But the unprofessional, unorganized with the admins, staff, etc is a nightmare. I'm speaking from experience with the financial aid and trying to sign up for classes. They act like they don't know what they're doing. Not to mention, you try to be friendly and they give you attitude like you did something wrong. Plus, the staff and admins are incredibly immature and straight up bullies. When you ask for help, they will act irritated, rude or expect you to it yourself. You know that you are going to be around students all day long, and if that is something you cannot handle or deliver civil professionalism, then why are you working here to begin with? Oh yeah, because they just hire anybody, and just hungry for a paycheck. Oh and also, people just tell you different answers or just straight up lie to you. If I had the choice, I would not spend another semester here for another minute. They really need to do something about this ghetto, unprofessional, unorganized, low class school and hire better admins, staff, etc too. I'll be so glad when I'm able to leave this school because I will not miss it. I'm sticking to my statement that Virginia schools are better. Also, another thing to add is that the advisers do not know how to do their jobs! They are just there for the title, so know what YOU want and YOUR plan, because these advisers will just tell you anything. In addition, they will act so conceited to make you look stupid. That's why I'm going with my own plan, and I can't wait to leave this school in the spring of 2018. It has been nothing but very poor. They just want your money. This school is nothing but a joke. If I could give this school a zero, I would in a heartbeat.

Bludva5939: It’s kind of hard to get in contact with almost any of the personnel here through email and phone or both. And of course when you need help with one thing everything seems to malfunction simultaneously and you have to contact more than one person so it becomes frustrating. I’m literally contemplating withdrawing and asking for a refund on a class that i really want/need to take because im having it/account issues and cant get proper help. other than that everyone that you are able to speak with is really nice and patient.

Howard Community College: what do users think?


Mike ODonnell: This is an excellent college, in which professors really know how to teach and to relate to students. Most students will transfer to four-year colleges and so will save a lot of money. I have talked with university professors. They have a great deal of respect for Howard CC. One especially noted the excellence in advising students.

Diane Raucher (broderick): Graduated with my nursing degree here. Best school in Maryland. Was ideal for working mothers to complete our education

Nigel Young: Honestly, I enjoyed my time. My biggest grievance was that the Disability Support Services didn't specifically target any particular disability. They offered "support" that was not particularly useful for my mathematical disability. Besides that, I met so many great professors who were inspirations for me. The events available to participate in were fun too. I liked Visiting Rep Stage up until that Joseph Ritsch said something offensive to me. Besides that, I felt that Howard Community College provided me with an opportunity to meet new people, enjoy great food, and I guess expand my horizons. Despite the many personal struggles I faced at this community college, I am glad that some professors were understanding and actually took the time to explain things thoroughly to me so that I would not fail. Overall, HCC is a good place to begin ones journey towards a higher education!

Pikachu: The campus is huge, yet very easy to navigate. The architecture is also really amazing!

Montu Shah: Great community College for Howard County

杨开『ʏᴀɴɢ ᴋᴀɪ』: It's a community college. But it's the best community college in the entire United States. It also provides some flexibility in choosing classes.

koki Alem 2718: The teachers are the best and they encourage a student and they make an effort to pass a GED test. I know the maths which I don't know. I get a knowledge from them so keep it up

Marianne Dias: For sure HCC is the best community college in Maryland. Thanks to all teachers from ELC, especially Ms. M. Gibbons

James Williams: Not your average community college, it feels like it could be a private university if they added some dorms and I love the architecture, its very modern. I love it here all of my professors have been great. Just beware of the math department, my experience with math at this school has been a little rocky, I've only had a couple of good professors out of all the classes that I've taken.

Steve: Absolutely the worst when it comes to doing the online curriculums. Most "professors" are clueless about how to do online classes. You'll get a better education at any other college guaranteed. Also, the campus is not safe for women.

Culinary Institute of Virginia: what do users think?


I: A for profit school makes a profit off the students, that is the purpose and priority of operations. Anyone and everyone is better off attending a real academic institution rather than this trump university/university of phoenix aspiring knock off.
Response: Hi, we are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. While we strive to ensure that each and every student has a wonderful experience while attending our institute, we understand that may not always happen and we apologize. We strongly suggest that you reach out and make an appointment with your campus president. We are sure that you will find them open and willing to listen to any and all concerns that you may have. In the meantime, please email myecpi@ecpi.edu with the message above along with any additional concerns that you wish to share with the university administration. Please be sure to include your contact information (Full Name, Email Address, Student ID, Phone Number), in case we have any additional questions and need to contact you. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!

YURI MASSEY: When I decided to go to Culinary School I had my doubts about going back to school, it wasn't until I got a call from the Culinary Institute of Virginia asking me to attend a career fair, I agreed to go and was impressed on what was presented. After the career fair I applied, and was excepted, during my initial interview I was terrified scared that I had gotten myself into something I couldn't get out of and wanted to back out, but I loved to cook and I wanted to learn all could about the ends and out of the kitchen. As I a sat in the Directors office shaking like a leaf, the director leans over and says " its going to be okay and its going to be one of your best decisions " and she was right, joining the culinary institute of Virginia was not only one of the best decisions I have ever made but one of the best schools I have ever attended. My experience there was worth the cost, I learned so much and had so much support from my friends and family and the staff at the school, if I had a question or a problem the staff was right there to help in anyway they could and made my experience their amazing. I can now say I am a proud graduate of ECPI Culinary Art Institute of Virginia and I'm headed back for an degree in baking in pastry. I thank you Culinary Institute of Virginia for making it easy to accomplish the goal I set out to achieve, which is to graduate with an associates degree.
Response: Hi Yuri, thank you for sharing about your experience at CIV. We are so glad to hear that and we appreciate the 5 star review! Keep up the good work!

pamela weinbender: I got my associates in baking and pastry. All my chef were great. They all new I had a learning disability and worked with me. I recommend kids there all the time. I have worked for 2 local bakeries in northern Virginia since graduating and now own my own bakery since November of 2018. The only thing that could be better would be the career advisor. They were pretty much saying I wouldn’t get anywhere by starting off with an internship and not an externship. Also kept telling me I could make more then what I was making right out of school. When I didn’t care about how much I was making and was wanting experience.
Response: Hi Pamela, apologies for not responding sooner. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your overall experience at our Norfolk campus! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and best of luck on your future endeavors!

Jesse Wallace: I attended CIV going on three years. I am currently working on my third degree and its been a lot of fun doing hands on in the culinary arts program. I told a lot of people about it . they help me a lot with things such as math. I haven't been in school in over 35 years and for me to get 3 degrees that saying a lot about the school .I would encourage everyone to come the programs go a lot faster then most school.
Response: Hi Jesse! Thank you for the great review. We're happy to see that you are enjoying your experience at Culinary Institute of Virginia. Keep up the good work!

Dyanne Walker: Going here is one of the best “grown up” decisions I’ve ever made!! The chefs, instructors, and staff are all very knowledgeable and willing to share everything they know. They push you to learn and try new things and it gives you confidence in yourself, and in the program. There are a lot of opportunities within the program as well (job opportunities, volunteer opportunities, Disney interviews, to name a few). It really is a great place. My last day of class I wished I was starting over the next day. I got my degree at 50 years old and while I’m not in the industry (yet ;)), it was a blast and I’m having a great time honing the skills I learned at CIV.
Response: Hi Dyanne! Thank you so much for the great review. We appreciate the 5 stars but most of all we're happy to hear that you had a great experience at CIV. Keep up the good work!

Skylar Yarnall: This school has been an amazing took on my way. They are genuinely care about each and every student. I have learned not only what is needed in the industry but also life lessons and secrets. I have made life long friends forged great connections and shared so many laughs and tears here. While I'm sure there are bigger well known schools NOTHING could have better than C.I.V. I will always be proud of what this school has given me and the amazing staff that helped me achieve my goals.
Response: Hi Skylar, we're so happy to hear this! Thank you for taking the time to review us and share your story. We wish you the best in your future culinary endeavors!

Mike Ruszkowski: ECPI's Culinary Institute of Virginia has been an amazing experience. I used my GI Bill to enroll in their Associate's Degree in the Culinary Arts and found a program, staff and faculty dedicated to my success as a student. Whether you are someone going to college for the first time, or like me your third, you will thoroughly enjoy the experience. If you are someone who enjoys cooking and wants to take it to the next level, check out the program, you will love it!
Response: Hi Mike! Thanks so much for your great review. We're glad to hear you had such a positive experience with us and we appreciate the 5 stars!

Violet Stiassney: This school was way more than a waste of my time, every chef I had told me to drop out at least once, just because I wasn't catching on to the material fast enough. All staff there, professors, administration, etc. Are not helpful or considerate in anyway. I only had pleasant experiences with Donna, and career services. Funny how career services cared more about the students than the actual professors. By the end of it I only stuck around to get my degree so I could rub it in their faces. Save your time, and your money and go to a school that actually means something to somebody and not this rinky-dink excuse for a school.
Response: Hi Violet, we are very sorry to hear about your experience. We strongly encourage you to make an appointment with the campus president, at your campus, and share your story with them. We think you will find them open to feedback and criticism and will work with you to find a resolution. You can also always send your story to us at myecpi@ecpi.edu along with your contact information and we will pass it along to the University Administration. Thank you!

Vanity Johnson: I got out the military and started at this college. I graduated in 2011 and it was one of the best places to start my journey. I learned alot and it has help me elevate my career. I tell people all the time if they are looking for a career change to go to this college. Now I have a full time catering service in Chicago and work part time downtown.Thank you for the experience.
Response: Hi Vanity! Thanks for taking the time to review us. We're happy to hear about your experience at CIV and we certainly appreciate the great review. Congrats on your successful career and keep up the good work!

Chris Martineau: The Culinary Institute of Virginia (ECPI) is a complete waste of money and a total rip-off. If you are thinking about pursuing an "education" there - don't. You'll make more money and have a brighter future taking a job at a Chic Fila (and have zero debt) than you will with a "degree" from CIV. Many of the classrooms are chaotic, and non-conducive to adult education. We experienced problems with multiple instructors who were verbally abusive, yelled at students and demeaned them publicly, and were generally unable to foster learning friendly environments. Several of the instructors were ill prepared to manage the electronic posting and submission of assignments, and refused to give credit when electronically submitted assignments were corrupted by the website or lost. The local "employers" attending the CIV sponsored job fairs refused to offer anything other than part time work which paid $8 an hour or less to graduates and externs. My wife had an emergency medical situation on the Norfolk campus which forced her to take medications that made it unsafe for her to drive and was later accused of "skipping class" and "throwing her fellow students under a bus" by the instructor." There were security and safety issues on the Newport News Campus where students threatened or accosted other students but were not handled adequately and the perpetrators are not held responsible. CIV is a for profit business that delivers poor customer service, and a negative overall return on investment to its paying clients. If you are seeking a degree in the culinary arts, it is our opinion you would be much better served spending your hard earned money somewhere elsewhere. 22 months and over 10K in debt later: Putting my wife through CIV is one of the worst decisions we ever made and have to spend the next 20 years paying off :(
Response: Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so sorry you had a bad experience. We strive to make sure every interaction for existing, new and potential students is a good experience. We strongly encourage you to make an appointment with University Administration and share your story with them. We think you'll find they are very approachable and very effective at finding out what happened in these instances and then finding a path to resolution that works for everyone! If you would not mind, please share more of your story with us via PM here on Facebook or you can email us at myecpi@ecpi.edu. Or, you can share the best way to contact you and someone will reach out to you. Please let us know if we can help further!

The Culinary Institute of America: what do users think?


Cassandra Wood: The students were a pleasure to be around kind considerate courteous. The food was amazing and the restaurant stunning. Our server was knowledgeable of the dishes and even arranged for his professor give us a kitchen tour. All around wonderful experience.

Carolina Pahl: Came here for a wedding and wow, the campus is beautiful. Had the ceremony outside. The reception was held in Roth hall and the after party was in another restaurant/building. The food was spectacular as expected, the architecture was magnificent. Met a very enthusiastic first year named Carter. While he talked about other schools having biology or literature classes, he has spaghetti at 4. Very pleasant experience, would love to go back for more food!

Rena Correia: Exceptional presentation, experience and tastes!!! And outstanding service from the students!! From the appetizers to the desserts, I can't say enough about our lunch at the C.I.A.!!! We will definitely be back and can't recommend the experience enough to everyone!! If in the area, you MUST make a reservation for either lunch or dinner at the Institute!! You will enjoy every minute and bite!!!

Rhonda Rosenheck: The students work so beautifully to make everything right for the guests. They're not always smooth at it, but encourage them, because they are striving to get it all right! And, btw, the food is scrumptious a d beautifully presented

Ted Ngai: CIA has multiple restaurants but the signature is the Bocuse. Food and service are top notch. We tried almost half of the food on the menu and everything came out great but I particularly enjoyed their table side ice cream. All in all can't go wrong with this place!

Retail Mavin: - A great adventure. One neve knows what to expect in lunch or dinner selections or in the style of the one of many restaurants. Each visit is a surprise. Much of the cooking and serving is performed by students. Since many of them are just beginning to learn culinary arts they expend more effort than employees of restaurants have been doing the same tasks year after year.

Zarah Cejoco: Ate at The Tavern because we didn't make early enough reservations for the fancy restaurant BUT I don't regret eating at this one at all!! Service was AMAZING!! Seriously the most efficient service I've ever experienced at a restaurant: less than a minute of ordering, we got our food. I wish I had a bigger or more stomachs! I had the duck confit while boyfriend had the mussels. Both were absolutely delicious and that's amazing in itself because nothing doesn't usually order or favor seafood. Dessert was fantastic: the molten chocolate cake with banana passion fruit sorbet. Two very rich and strong flavors separately somehow perfectly balanced each other out together. 😍😋 Definitely eat here.

Ray Smith: One of the best experiences at the American Bounty. The food was exquisite and delicious. The service was fantastic

Jay Reeder: I was dropping off my kid who starts school on Tuesday! It was a smooth experience with everyone I spoke with. I have a good feeling about this!

Dawn C Key: Absolutely beautiful campus! Staff is very considerate and welcoming!

IUP Academy of Culinary Arts: what do users think?


Elizabeth Plyler: This school is absolutely horrible I would give zero stars if I could. They may be able to train students somewhat decently on an accelerated track but the way they treat the students is abhorrent. A close friend of mine is an RA and the things she has told me have made it perfectly clear that this school does not care about it's students, especially the ones who have to live on campus. My brother is looking in to culinary school and I would never in a million years recommend this one. My mom went to IUP main and had a great experience but this branch campus is an absolute disgrace.

Everafter Always: If you have a chance to sample these students cuisine, DO IT! It's an experience you will never forget. They are so talented

John McCormick: A neutral rating, not a BAD rating. I wasn't a student, but the other reviews seem to lack any details so here is my experience. I cannot comment on the quality of the education but I did grow up in a hotel restaurant so I am not completely ignorant of the skills needed and the actual low chance of getting what I would consider a good job. All I know is that during a press party hosted by IUP for Groundhog Day I saw the heap big chef going past me in a hallway. He had all the arrogance of a big time chef and completely ignored me (a member of the press) EVEN when one of the students told him I knew and worked with Julia Child. (FYI, without her there might be no French cooking in this country.) Previously, an older friend of mine graduated and got a job cooking but quit after a month. She told me it paid less than her previous job and the working conditions were awful. Just one graduate, but useful information. This is a very tough profession and there are few openings. I've tried to obtain data on graduates and their work experience with no success. That is neutral data, not good or bad, just something to know.

Bobbie Smith: The food was beyond fabulous. The entire experience was like being in a first class restaurant . Everyone needs to experience this place

Candi_lea: Great food and a wonderful environment for the culinary students to show their skills!

Chrissy Moore: It's a great experience. A+ for everyone

Andrei Barbu: The cooking classes here are perfect. You can go for a date night, hang out with a friend, or take a group class solo. You'll learn something new and have a blast doing it, not to mention that you get to have a dinner where you taste a lot of great dishes. They have people from all levels from those who have never made anything to those looking for a challenge. Try it out!
Response: Hi Andrei, Thank you for your 5 star review!

Matthew Savas: CSC classes are always wonderful. I have been to three — bread, croissants, and brunch. The instructors are always talented, patient, and helpful. The kitchen is well-equipped — maybe too well-equipped because I feel sad when I return to my dinky home kitchen. I can’t recommend these courses enough! The photo comes from the brunch class.
Response: Hi Matthew, Thank you for taking the time to post a 5 star review about your class experience at CSCA. We will be sure to let Chef Sarah know you left a review about her class. We hope to see you back in our kitchens very soon! Thank you, CSCA

Haley: This review isn’t for the cooking school specifically but for CSCA’s excellent customer service. I purchased a gift certificate and needed to modify some of the information after submitting my order. Sean reached out to help me right away, kept me informed throughout the entire process, and even followed up to ensure the gift was delivered on time, while remaining positive, friendly and professional the entire time! After this experience, I hope to take a class of my own at CSCA someday!
Response: Hi Haley, We thank you for your review. Our staff and kitchens are waiting for you take a class at CSCA. Again, thank you for your positive review.

Pamela Mouradian: Classes were great! Took Techniques of cooking. Staff was friendly and so helpful. Kitchens were spacious and very clean! Can not wait to take more classes at CSCA
Response: Hello Pamela, Thank you for taking your time to write a review about your class and experience at CSCA. We look forward to seeing you in our kitchens again! Happy Cooking!

Marc Sierra: The Cambridge culinary school is Boston’s premier culinary school featuring some of the top chefs in the area as well as convenient location and thoughtful staff. I highly suggest this culinary school to anyone looking to improve their techniques on cuisine

Deborah Hayes: I had the best time learning about the art of baking breads. Faith, the instructor, was professional, funny,clear,extremely educational and lit a fire under me to experiment at home with different ingredients. I can't wait to take another class next month.
Response: Deborah, thank you for your 5 star review! We will be sure to share your review with Chef Faith. We look forward to seeing you in our kitchens again. Happy Baking!

Maggie: Took a couples cooking class and liked the group atmosphere and delicious food but was VERY disappointed at the lack of social distancing which actually took place. It was impossible to socially distance as we had to search around the kitchen literally brushing past people. That being said when it is not the middle of a pandemic I would consider trying another class.
Response: We are sorry to hear about your recent class experience at CSCA. Could you please contact our office at 617.354.2020 to further discuss your feedback. Thank you, Sean

Matt Cook: Went for a class with my work for our first holiday party and it was great. Chef Meg was fun, friendly, informative and didn't make anyone feel dumb or bad for not knowing cooking techniques/strategies. She went over the recipes beforehand and was always available for questions or concerns. She had a great attitude. The only problem was apparently another class was also using the kitchen at the same time, and as our group was already really large, it made for a very crammed experience at times, especially considering I was trying to man two burners while a whole group was directly next to me using the grill.

Thomas Nay: We took the Tapas Couple's cooking class and had the absolute best time! The food was amazing along with the group of people we met. We received a gift certificate to take a class here as a wedding gift and we will definitely be doing the same for some of our friends. Our instructor was Joe who we would highly recommend. He was a great teacher! Give a class a try you wont regret it.

j gresla: Just completed techniques of cooking and absolutely loved the series. Chef Mark is amazing and I use what I have learned everyday at home. The class size is small which is nice and best of all is being able to eat everything you made. Can't wait to take another series. Thanks Chef Mark!!
Response: Hi! Thanks so much for the kind words regarding your recent experience at CSCA! (We must agree...Chef Mark IS amazing!) We are so happy you enjoyed your Techniques of Cooking series and that you have been able to apply the skills you learned in your everyday life. We hope to see you back in our kitchens again soon!
