I visited my friends in their apartment and was given a tour by them. Except for the high cost, I was favorably impressed until we had lunch. The salad bar was fresh, but very limited. The entrees, however, were almost inedible. Fish tasted old and unpleasant. The ribs were burned and tough and left uneaten. Friends said they had a new chef who was trained at Cordon Blue, I believe. If so, he must have graduated at the bottom of his class...or he falsified his resume. Desert was good, but I am sure it was purchased from elsewhere.. This is an expensive place. No excuse for poor food. I'll pass.

General manager is unfriendly and uptight. Time for a vacation or new job! Nurse appears to be there to collect paycheck. Not interested in residents. Upper management needs to look at the huge turnover and complaint of residents. This echos through the place! Too expensive for what you get for your money. Terrible service in dining area because of huge turnover. Underpaid employees keeps the turning over. [removed] Management only cares about those dollies $$$$$$. [removed]. Stay away! Look elsewhere for your loved one!

I just about choked yesterday when the Representative told me there was a non-negotiable, one time, non-refundable, $5,000 "Community fee" BEFORE my Aunt could move in. I see from a previous responder that this fee was only $1,000 in September of last year. This is nothing less than high level extortion. She couldn't believe that I'd never heard of this type of fee before in any of the other three Brookdale Facilities that I've had Relative live in the previously. I'm going to cancel our application and keep my Aunt at the Brookdale Facility at Admiral Heights where there is no "Community Fee".
