Initially we visited Young Chefs for a bday party. The kids had such a great time. When the Groupon became available, my friends and I purchased with the intent to take the kids to one of the Friday night events- while the moms attend a girls night. Our plans worked out. Once again, the kids had a ball.
Fun experience for the kids but not so fun for the adults having to try and coordinate with the staff. Staff is very hard to get in touch with - I had to leave numerous messages before anyone called me back. They were extremely unorganized and not knowledgeable about upcoming workshops and I wouldn't know about a workshop until the day before when I received an email notification (it wouldn't be posted on online either). Since my Groupon was about to expire I had to pay extra and pick a different type of class even though it was less expensive than the price of workshops or weekly classes. I suggest you check their online calendar and make sure you see a class or workshop that you want to register for before purchasing because they do not guarantee that they will offer any workshops each month. I gave this as a gift to my daughter's friend and I was embarrassed at the unorganized schedule and their limited workshops. Ended up doing the Kids Night Out and paid twice as much. Check-in was crazy hectic and the staff wasn't very friendly. We have been there before this night and it was ok. Again, kids had fun but staff is very hard to deal with.
