Wonderful brunch with friends. Enjoyed the fried chicken and waffle, plus the Waldorf salad. Ruby took good care of our needs. Thank you to all who had a part in providing a delicious meal. We appreciate each one of you, even those whose faces we do not see as they are in the kitchen.

I loved the whole experience. Reservations were easy. Having Gen Jones greet our family was exciting. Seeing Teresa Santana helping us at the table was a thrill. The food was delicious and the variety impressive, especially the platter of appetizers. Thank you for the dessert table and having Lori Dewitt get us just what we wanted. It was great to see fellow residents enjoying themselves so much.

The service is great. My last visit on 11/15/21 Ruby and Yvonne were exceptional n serving our table of six plus getting all of our requests quickly. The food is improving. The pork ribs are devious...so tender plus very meaty. Why can we not get the black tablecloths back on the tables at night on other days than Sunday or holidays. Thank you.

We had roast beef and ribs; both were excellent. Yvonne was our server and was so nice and efficient. Judith let us sit early to have a drink before dinner because both the Social Club and Lemay Room were closed. That was very considerate of her. We had dinner with the Corcoran's - Judith and Yvonne made a very good impression on them along with the food.

The experience was outstanding - Samantha & Nicki were our servers - Nicki was sort of training Samantha in handling an order for a bottle of wine and then pouring it for those who were drinking. My food - the salmon - was delicious - all in all - a wonderful evening with 4 old-timers and one new couple as guests. We look forward to another fine evening meal in the dining room.

Attended memorial service for Carolyn Massello’s mother Monday. Food was excellent. Small sandwiches, chicken salad, tuna salad, cheese, etc. had little touches that made them extra special. Mayonnaise drizzled in patterns on top of the bread, paprika sprinkled over that for color, or tiny sprigs of parsley. Cheese platters also nicely arranged. Well done!

Mix-up--this is for July 9, 5:15 PM. Very good dinner, excellent service by Genesis who is super. Friends rarely go to dinner, so they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We all enjoyed the crab cakes wrapped in a piece of catfish. Very clever and delicious. Only thing missing was a piece of pie. We enjoyed the sugar oatmeal cookies instead--very good with coffee.

Wonderful brunch. Delicious choices of food. The fried chicken with the pecan waffle is my favorite. Husband had omelet made to his satisfaction. Firneds with us really enjoyed their first brunch--one had fried chicken and waffle. The other had an omelet with cheese, avacado, and tomato. Both were very pleased with their choices. The waldorf salad is a winner. Great sevice by Hayley who anticipated our every need.

I loved being back in the dining room with friends. Our servers were top notch and the food came in a timely manner but I was disappointed in my salmon. I ordered it to be cooked to medium doneness and specified, “not dry”, but it was very dry and stiff. The value of the meal has lessened after reopening since the meal no longer comes with a salad or beverage.

As we return to normal it is difficult to judge at this point. We strongly congratulate the staff for their efforts during these trying times. We do feel that more attention could be paid to an improved menu and preparation of the food.
