We enjoyed a delicious brunch with friends. Irene did a very good job taking care of any needs. Problem for us not being able to get Sunday reservations as well as week dinners. It appears some people block days at a time. This week the entire week was blocked on the previous Sunday.

The meal was delicious. The steak done medium rare. One guest loved his grilled shrimp. I was so glad we could all get sweet potato fries. Theresa is coming right along with her training. She has a funny entertaining personality. My husband marveled at the size of the ribs and enjoyed the taste. Things seem to be improving in the dining room. That’s great The chow line food is still iffy. I like the stuffed bell peppers, the brisket, the meat loaf, the meat balls with spaghetti. Many times I don’t have anything to choose from and then I hope I can get tuna/ chicken salad. You never miss with that dish.

The food overall has improved, but to serve on St Patrick's day Corn Beef without cabbage is not appropriate. The Tenderloin on the Saturday evening meal was excellent as well as the fish meals. It will be nice to increase our wait staff for a more smooth flowing meal. Breakfast needs to be started again. The residents always look forward to a very good breakfast with friends.

Our group was seated at three different tables very comfortably. At my table our waitress, Irene, was very attentive and patient with one of the women at my table who was not very pleasant to Irene since this resident’s salmon was undercooked. Irene handled it beautifully with respect for the resident and maturity to know not to take it personally. Five star service rating for Irene! The rest of us at the table thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

It was a wonderful dinner to celebrate our beginning to return to normal! The Valentine’s Day dinner was outstanding. Our table ordered each of the entrees and we were all very happy with our choices. From the soup to the dessert everything was delicious, even though some substitutes had to be made. All was excellent. Lori DeWitt was a cheerful hostess despite having to work overtime to seat everyone. The wait staff was great. Our waitress, Teresa, had been working since 8 that morning and was getting really tired by 7:30 but she brought us everything we requested and kept on smiling. Our senior staff were everywhere helping new staff, and we even saw line cooks helping in the dining room. We are grateful to have a staff so willing to go out of their way to provide a special meal for us, even when it meant working outside their own sphere. It was a great way to start a new beginning, and from all the happy faces in the dining room we could see that everyone was glad to be able to socialize with friends and neighbors together again. Thank you for all the effort it took to make so many residents happy all at once!

Dining services continue to amaze me. They deal with shortages in staffing as well as supply sources while keeping the standards of service and quality high. I don't usually give 10s on anything, since only God's works to be perfect, but people who work on Christmas Day deserve 10s across the board.

Excellent job done by Wait Staff. They are short in numbers, but not short in professionalism, enthusiasm, and patience. Things were handled in a different manner which unfortunately was not known to residents. Still the Dining Room personnel were top notch in handling the Brunch meals. Yvonne is an amazing woman who always deals with whatever comes her way with marvelous capability in getting things accomplished and a smile on her face.

The food was very good. Only one complaint. Steak was to be medium rare, but was very rare. The nice thing about it was we had more than enough to eat and brought the steak home, reheated it to perfection and enjoyed it the following day. Thank you for making it a lovely evening.

Ruby did a fine job taking care of our order and serving-always friendly and pleasant. Our food was delicious-three had omelets, one King Ranch, one big salad, and mine was turkey with vegetables. The pastry with fruit was so flaky and marvelous. The Waldorf salad is ever a winner. Thanks and appreciation to any and all who had a part in the meal service.

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.

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!
