It was a fun night out with my husband . We were seated up near the front, which was really considerate of the hostess since the only other spots were long tables with big parties already on them. So we sat with two other couples. I think that made a big difference in our experience! The food was good, but they were 'short staffed' so there was a little trouble there with getting it to us when it was still warm and better tasting, but it was still okay. I think it was funny and entertaining, you don't learn a lot, it is really more for entertaining, (I was not sure what it would be), but I 'd recommend as a fun night out!

Chef Sandy not only made this a great food experience, but she gave a great show. She is very personable and entertaining - it was a fun and memorable (and delicious!) night out.

This merchant was unprofessional. From the beginning she had poor customer service and told me to call back or text her at a different number. I did so and made a reservation. Then a conflict came up with date I had made reservation. I contacted her to re-schedule 2 weeks in advance. The merchant never got back to me or acknowledged my message or phone calls. I would not recommend this business at all.

Had a great time. Only thing negative is that it ran very late. It was almost 11 when it finished.

The entire experience was horrible. They over sell the event so it is crowded. We sat at the end of the table so by the time the food was passed to us, there was little to nothing left. The announcer was obnoxious and ruined the entire night with his non-stop talking. I would not purchase this again

I bought this Groupon for my parents for my mother's birthday, and they had a great time at the "Mediterranean Night". They were able to taste a bunch of unique dishes, and felt Chef Sandy had a great personality. They have already told me that they will be going back soon for a different themed experience!

The show was fabulous as everyone involved. We enjoyed every moment and Sandy was such a wonderful host! The food was incredible and my husband was able to cook with her! I strongly recommend the VIP we had seats at the island with Sandy which was incredible!! We are looking forward to going again and bringing family and friends!!
