Mostly very good except the piano was too LOUD and the prices were a bit too high and the view would be better with coverings
over the windows to the teaching rooms.

I really enjoyed our dinner at Le Cordon Bleu. Wait staff was great. Ambiance was appropriate. Wine selections were perfect! Each course was so exciting! So many flavors and textures together. Plating was absolutely beautiful !!

Valentine's dinner was over-the-top! The students and chefs prepared the most wonderful four course menu that was absolutely fabulous! I look forward to dining again! Hats off to the chefs!!

This was the most disappointing experience ever.

I have ALWAYS enjoyed this restaurant tremendously. Perhaps it was the menu I didn't like but I expected the kind of fabulous food I've enjoyed there in the past. They didn't have the wine offerings previously offered, the bread was "blah," the dipping oil was even more "blah." The only things enjoyed was the chicken cracklings and pine nut filling and unfortunately, both of those were limited amounts. The "carrot cake" was FAR from carrot cake -- we all agreed it was pumpkin and even our server agreed with us. We asked for decaf coffee and that was quite the LONG wait even tho we were asked twice to give them a couple more minutes. Server was delightful and, in fact, seemed to agree with all our disappointment. Unfortunate for newbies!

Their pre-set four course menu was the one that they won the stat culinary competition with... the same one they will take to regional. It had great variety, was well thought out with unique flavors. The wine pairings were excellently well thought out and complimented the dishes.

I read reviews before the visit and and they were pretty good esp the quality of food. I'm not a big complainer of anything however the food wasn't as good as the restaurant level food.,i picked pasta and a potato soup. food tasted something like what I would have cooked at home, meaning no msg but tastes less flavor and low sodium. I would recommend for a one time visit for fun or different kind of restaurant experience.

We all very much enjoyed the food. Every course was great. The price has doubled since I was last in. We were a little surprised by the cost especially for lunch. We also forgot that it seems to take awhile to get the food. Overall it was still a nice dining experience!

They raised their prices for lunch A LOT since I've been there at the same time food quality has gone downhill big time.
For the price you can have lunch at many of the better restaurants around town.

No wonder we were the only ones there for most of the lunch service. (one table was occupied when we arrived; another table was occupied just before we left.

The last few times I went (more than a year ago), the place was fairly full. It doesn't appear that they're connecting the dots.

The dining experience wasn't polished; but you shouldn't expect that from a school. However, the food and service are worth substantially more than you pay for. The wait staff is very friendly and willing to give tours of the facilities.
