Convenience and price doesn't equal fine dining, it equals adequate feeding at best.
WOW, that was quite a post to me. I'm not sure what any of what you said had to do with what I said. All I said was I've had fabulous meals in the Villages. Not quite sure what that has to do with a napkin on my lap etc.
Actually I have traveled all over the world and have had many fabulous fine dining experiences. I have eaten in some of the best restaurants there are.
All I said was fabulous meals. If you quote, you need to quote right.
Like I always say, to each their own. Not everyone likes everything and that's okay. No need to attack.

I'm very thankful I don't have your expectations.

The fact is simple, you are confusing fact with your opinion.

I was merely trying to pay a compliment opposed to the negative.

I think restaurant reviews have more to do with one's expectations. If you expect every restaurant to be a fine dining experience, you will be disappointed.

If you expect a restaurant to serve decent food with good service, your expectations have a better chance to be met.

My son's has worked at some of the top notch hotels where chefs are acclaimed for their food. I think some people would say their meal was sub-par and some people would say they really enjoy it. Service is always top notch.

I have simple tastes, and good food and service, are easy to attain.

Dear People, If your want to review restaurants, then join the Villages Gourmet Club. That's what they do.
If you need to complain about food or service, talk to the restaurant manager.
If you enjoy "fabulous" food or extraordinary service at a restaurant, tell the manager and/or leave a big tip.
Period.

Bonny, chatty bratty is trying to ruffle your feathers. I know it can be hard not to respond but if you don't feed the stray cat it will go away. I always respect your opinions and facts!

I must say, I'm pretty easy too. If I don't have to cook it, it's all good. LOL

Well, mine was fabulous!

Thank you ,Walter, --I guess you too, like to heap praise on mediocrity, As far as my experiences--we lived on a motor-yacht and cruised over 30K miles-visiting the U.S., Canada and the Islands- Pulling into Charleston, New Orleans, Savannah, and hundreds of other ports gave us an unparalleled travel & dining experience.
