The Cauldron is coming to NYC due to high demand and the necessity to add a touch of British branded magic to American shores.
About The Cauldron NYC
The Cauldron is the magical cocktail making experience that took London by storm with over 15,000 wannabe Witches and Wizards joining us for potions and elixirs in just five months!
Our server, the Meowstress, Aisha, was so wonderful and really funny. Loved, loved, loved every minute of our potions class.
I got a simple caesar salad with steak. The croutons were soft and soggy, the steak was mealy in texture, and the dressing did not taste homemade. We also ordered the bubbly blue tequila, lime juice, and aloe cocktail and ended up sending it back for a beer because it tasted like sour pool water. Was quite a disappointing experience. I'm usually very understanding as I worked in the service industry for over 10 years but it was clear that this wasn't due to just being an "off" or "busy" day for the kitchen/bar and that it's simply because the quality of the food and drink is just sub par. We did the magical potion making experience upstairs after dinner and the quality of the cocktails were just as disappointing. We didn't drink the first one and ended up adjusting the second and not following the ingredient instructions to make it more drinkable.
Awesome staff, great atmosphere, we had a great time there!
Great fun atmosphere with friendly wait staff. We had a great time in our potion class and will definitely be returning.
Great fun had by all!
The waitress was so desperate and flirted with every man in our party. She also messed up every basket of ingredients because she was too busy flirting. Terrible. Not worth the money
Soo amazing! We loved it and had a great time! I did find some of the drinks we made to be a little too sweet so maybe an option to put less of the sweeteners would be good.
A very fun and entertaining experience...drinks were delicious and fun to make..hosts, servers and bartenders were all aces...will definitely be coming back here for sure and will recommend to others as well
So much fun!
I had an amazing experience. Great food and service. Had a great magical experience upstairs at the potion class. Very creative and staff really goes into character(we all do as well) LOVED it. Will go again. Food was amazing as well as the potion drinks.
This place was recommended by a friend and it was absolutely amazing!! I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I LOVED the potions class. The food and drinks were great and the customer service was amazing. I will definitely return.
spending so much money just to sit at one place is not correct, it needs to be like a interesting tour. If I am sitting at the same place, what's the difference in a regular dining and Cauldron. We need to feel the harry potter experience more.
Drinks were awesome lots of fun during the experience. Didn’t enjoy our server but the other ones seemed nicer and more into the experience. Our guy kind of felt like he didn’t want to be there.
I’ve been wanting to take this potion class forever and it was so worth every penny! I had to tip my potion master she made the whole experience for us. I’m definitely returning for date night!
Service was great. Our potions master was very fun and helpful. I think there should be a larger variety of drinks to choose from and it’s a little expensive.
Outstanding services and staff! We order the sliders appetizers while waiting for the potions making reservation and they were perfectly cooked and served! The staff was very attentive and kind!
We had a great time and a great experience! We got great assistance from the Meowstress! I loved how everyone was so in character and the drinks were delicious too!
If you had larger robes would be beneficial. I’m 6 foot and 225 and the only xl was very tight
Our potion master lady flower power and Hines were great!!!!!!! They need a raise.
Had a great time, the drinks were so tasty, the staff was great, whenever we were missing anything we let them know and they brought it right away. The food was also delicious and decently priced. The drinks were a little overpriced but worth it for the experience. We went on Sunday so it wasn’t crowded which made the experience much better I’m sure.
We had an amazing time celebrating my girlfriend's birthday, and from everything I had heard before we were not disappointed in how fun the experience was. I want to especially praise the entire staff in how well they treated the members of our group who did not drink alcohol. There was zero stigma at all, and every step of the way was modified but also carried out in a way that reassured my sober friend but also kept them included in the process and did not exclude them from any one facet of the potions class experience. I cannot praise that portion highly enough. If I had to offer one item for improvement, it might be to offer some larger robe sizes. The robes are pre-set on the benches before we sat down, and we had to do a little shuffling to find robes that fit most of our party, but even so the largest one wouldn't fit one of my friends. That minor detail aside, we have zero complaints and truly had a wonderful time!
I didn’t have food but everything else was amazing
Excellent experience for a birthday celebration
