Yelp reviews of the Professional Bartending School

Monday, February 11th, 2013

We are grateful for the terrific reviews that students/grads write about the Professional Bartending School.  Go ahead and read them.  You can find a lot on The Yelp page for bartending schools.  We just went back over them.  Currently as of mid July, 2014 there are 27 on Yelp.  You have to dig though to find all of them.  As of this time, 7 are being shown and 20 are what Yelp describes as “not currently recommended”.   The old Yelp term for that was filtered.  Its some kind of Yelp algo to figure out which reviews to show and which not.  Its been a controversial issue.

You can find the “not currently recommended” reviews by clicking on a light shaded link beneath the last review.  That link is at this moment labeled “20 other reviews not currently recommended”.  That takes you to the reviews that Yelp decided it didn’t want to highlight or include in the overall ratings
We aren’t going to complain. Its Yelp’s system. But if you want to read them go ahead. Here is some information we gathered up from the current 27 yelp reviews:

  • They cover a lot of years. One was written as far back as 2007. Some are written this year.
  • 21 of the reviews are 5 Star. Wow!!! Thanks a lot!!
  • 4 are 4 Star. Wow!!! Again, Thanks a lot!!!
  • 1 is 2 Star. The person didn’t attend the school. They called us and were put on hold. We apologized.
  • 1 is 1 Star. We responded. We are sure it was planted by a competitor. We gave our reasons why. As Yelp suggested we contacted the writer via Yelp. The person never responded. We checked our enrollment records. Nobody by that name from that town attended our school. We are sure it was faked.
  • We checked something else. The reviewers come from all over the region. 12 were from different towns and cities in Maryland. Three were from Washington DC. 10 of the reviewers were from different towns in Virginia.  One was from somebody who returned to Louisiana and another from somebody originally from NYC.

    One of them was from somebody named Adam, from Bethesda written in 2008. We checked with him earlier in 2014. He is still bartending and managing for the same employer. Cool. That is long term value.  Another review of our bartending school came from Noah from Silver Spring written in 2010.  He is still bartending.  We know he picked up new bartending jobs in 2014 because of our placement assistance.  If you visit our school for a free class and want to review job placement records you will find his name on placements this year.

    If you can’t find the reviews but want to read what graduates of our bartender school have said over many years, contact our school at (703) 841-9700.   We’ll copy the pages and email them to you.
