Astor Center itself is an Amazing Venue. If I were to post a review about the Venue I would give it 5 stars. My review is about the Fried & Fizzy event that was held at this venue.The Tastings were amazing, The staff in charge of showing and explaining the Wine were extremely knowledgeable. The Tasting (Fried) portion of the event was to say the least non existent. I was prepared to broaden my knowledge and tantalize my pallet with an assortment of chicken. That did not happen. There was a cheese platter -which was nice but the advertisement says Fried Chicken. I as well as many other guest were extremely disappointed. Hopefully the event planners will either change the advertisement or add Fried Chicken to the event in the future

My first time attending a wine / food pairing / cooking class and I was very impressed. The new facility is fabulous for this sort of thing - very comfortable seating, good amenities at each seat, well placed cameras to view the details of the cooking. The chef instructor, Carl Raymond, was great - lots of fun and very knowledgable. It was a terrific, instructive evening - with great food and wine.

I visited the space for a tasting event; the rooms were large and spacious but backed with people so it was difficult to maneuver around. The whole area had a nice ambiance with the lighting and all the people working there were nice and attentive. One thing I would change about the layout was where they had the coat check. Not a significant problem, but it was in a narrow area where people walked back and forth to get to the other room or wait for the bathroom etc, so it got crowded quickly just walking through. Overall, it was a nice space and you can hold many events with large crowds.

Great class, informative and enthusiastically taught. Very good and interesting wine selection, and the pairings were excellent and surprising. I would go to another pairing, they have many. Check the site for their event schedule.

Terrible customer service. I paid $158 several weeks ago to take the class and my girlfriend caught the flu this weekend and I was promptly told that in order to receive a credit for tonights class I would have had to inform them 72 hours in advance. I did not want a refund I just wanted to apply the money towards a class scheduled on a different day when we both could attend. SORRY! NO CAN DO. So be sure to know you are going to get sick 3 days ahead of time. I wont be coming here ever again.

They have a good party space at this center for tastings and events! I just came back from one there for the Japan liquor event (Jetro) and can say I would go back there for another one if I could. The store and space is open and well sized with friendly staff and doorman.

Lovely space with demo kitchens and screening rooms that hosts private events, regular classes and special celebrity chef appearances (e.g., Ming Tsai was here for the Lucky Rice Festival). On your way out, remember to stop by Astor Wines & Spirits directly downstairs for something to sip on when you get home.
