    I had my son do a trial class which was 19.00, ok no biggie! Kids looked well trained. Instructors seem to work very well with kids. However, when it came down to money after the $99 month special was over the contract you would have to buy into at $1,600+ for the year is a pretty hefty price tag to teach kids taekwondo. I just don't like being trapped by contracts.

    Had a japanese straight perm done here and the end result was fabulous. It is costly @ $300 but worth every penny. This was done a few years ago so prices may have changed. Place is clean and staff is very friendly.

    At First impression the spa is beautiful, clean and staff very friendly; however the person who gave me the brazilian wax did not do a great job. She left stragglers and a patch of hair. For the hefty price tag of $55 dollars i expected better service. Will not go there again!

    Be sure you eat a snack before going to Lido's, the service was extremely slow, over an hour long wait; even when the restaurant was not crowded. Got the impression that our kind was not welcome...Food was ok, but nothing to rave about. Will not return!

    the menu is typical burgers and fries, a few sandwiches and salads for good measure but thats it. Cute decor and music was fun. Seems like this location there is some kind of inside joking going on because the waitstaff are always laughing! Our waitress was lacking at our table who did not attend to us as she did other tables. Wonder why? Didn't even do the cute ketchup smiley face...OH Well. Burgers are blah, nothing to write home about..grease, grease and more grease..at least they offer turkey burgers!!! Value...eh!!

    Beautiful to look at but where do they get off selling tootsie rolls for 12.99 a pound??? It sickens me that companies like this are able to sell this to the public and so grossly overpriced! Pre-packaged popcorn aka fake drizzlecorn taste nothing like Dale & Thomas. The peanut butter with chocolate does not taste like peanut butter at all; and at $8.00 a bag (8oz.) you would think it would have. Nice decor at the very best. I would maybe consider buying here if I need something customized or looking for a gift for a person but thats about it.

    If you want a light, not too sweet perfect cake this is the place. The Boston cream with cheeries is the best. The cake was a rave at my son's birthday. Even my son's grandfather who isn't a cake person asked for seconds. The customer service is exceptional. Thanks for the cake and the service. I will order again.

    I ordered my son's first birthday from this location in 2006. It was the best tasting and freshest cake I have ever had, the buttercream frosting and the strawberry filling was all the rave at my son's party everyone complimented the cake and asked me where I got it. It was a little over priced but I think it is worth it. The customer service needs a little work, the girls there rush customers into their order.

    Don't know about the other bad reviews here, if it tasted stale I would have returned a chunk of it back to the bakery and requested some money be returned. For the price paid..it should be fresh and moist.

    This is my honest opinion, I ordered a cake from Make My Cake at the location on 139th street which was the best cake I have ever tasted, but at this location (on 116 street) I could not say the same. This cake was ordered a week in advance for my son's birthday. While cutting into it it was very dry and crumbling. It didn't have the same flavor and moisture, in fact it tasted stale. For the price I paid I was very disappointed I won't buy a cake from this location again. Go a little further uptown for a better cake!

    Why so many bad reviews? Anyway, I always order the large size cupcakes, (smaller cupcakes have no filling) the filling in the apple crumb is scrumptious! Many to choose from and always fresh when I buy them. The price is a bit high for my taste, but still taste darn good to me! Service is fast here!
