We've enjoyed two multi-generational family cooking classes here - the first in 2010, and the latest was last year. Both times we had 3 generations, and both times it was a fun, tasty and educational experience. The instructors were great, the facility is top of the line, the food was incredible and the experience memorable.

My wife and I recently attended the Pizza & Wings cooking class. The Chef and team were great. Very hands on and helpful. Great environment and opportunity to meet people. Who doesn't like making a meal and having someone else clean up :)

I have held back from writing this review. Honestly, one of the worst dinner experiences of my life. Poor service. Missing drink and menu items. Blah food. Cold coffee. Then a clueless attempt by the manager on duty to make things better -- without making things better. Final presentation -- a check that was miscalculated. We did get a name... More

We enjoyed our stop here while heading down to Bristol Mountain to do some skiing. Wonderful selection of local beer and wine. Excellent lunch upstairs at the bistro.

We have been here many many times for dining and classes. This particular class was held in the dining room which was beautiful and sat about 13 people. We tried 3 different NY craft beers which were wonderful and paired them with 3 different pizza slices. The pizza was just ok, but the instructor was very knowledgeable and it was... More

I have been here several times. They have a very nice restaurant and have rooms for private functions/meetings. I have done two of the cooking classes. This is SO much fun! It is a little pricey for the class but a fun night out with my husband -and made him cook!

We love the restaurant for lunch or dinner with family or friends. Most recently ate at a New Year's Eve event co-hosted by Konstantin Frank Winery. Pluses include: +continuous table service (at least a bar menu available in mid-afternoon), which makes it a great stop for an early meal when you've tasted enough wine already! +local NYS ingredients and beverages...
