Great food. Although the groupon was not clear about using the real value if I could not get to the cooking demo before I moved away. Ended up with a loud disagreement at the time of paying.

There was no demonstration, just talking and a meal. I feel that this was not what they advertised. I was very unhappy.

The Groupon stated that we would be attending a food and wine pairing demonstration. We spent $150 for one crepe and an appetizer-sized portion of boeuf bourguigon plus 2 glasses of wine while two guys talked to us about the history of French wine and walking us through the recipes they provided. A demonstration means you will show someone how to do something, it does mean lecture. I was highly disappointed that there was no hands-on demonstration and that the amount of food and wine provided for the two of us had a value of maybe $50. Bistro Voltaire should be refunding money to people who attended for misleading us and overcharging for what they served. To claim that this was a $300 value is preposterous.

Our groupon was for four courses, we received Three. All delicious, but left us wanting more. Thought a wine would be matched to each course.

The wine "expert" from the food demo and wine pairings looked down on Americans and American cuisine to the point it was insulting.

Everything was exceptional. Hopefully you will consider opening for Easter Sunday brunch!
