Enjoyed the lunch meal we had at this cooking school/restaurant. Clean and great service, fun seeing the pre-area and kitchen. Impressive and classy.

The Arizona Culinary Institute is the place for you if you love gourmet fare, are willing to try something new and different each time you visit, and enjoy getting a real value for your money. This is a chef's learning kitchen, so the menu will change often, depending on what they are curretly learning. The chefs also serve as the waiters, so sometimes the service can be a little spotty, but all is forgiven, as they are just learning! The food has always been well prepared and beautifully presented when I have eaten there. It is a great way to try some unique and interesting dishes. I highly recommend giving it a try!

Always wonderful. A great place to take out of town guests. A fun lunch where the staff are the students. Friendly, willing to tell you about the institute and give you a tour.

If you enjoy supporting getting a band for your buck - this is the place. The food is deliciously prepared and served by students of the Institute. (My brother-in-law once attended here.) It is especially fun getting to know the servers and their aspirations in the culinary field. Keep in mind these folks are training to be chefs not waiters, so sometimes the service can be lacking. But the students make it up with their personalities and willingness to learn. The food is delicious but not pricey at all.
