    Where are these dinners at???? Not at the Atria in Fort Wright, Ky, and the menu here is complained about constantly. My Mother and Father live here and when I have dinner with them the food is not edible!!! Not only do my parents complain about the food but so do A LOT of the other residents.
    They have talked to management about this issue, but nothing is ever done about it, the complaints fall upon dead ears.
    Would like to know who to speak with to make the residents of Atria in Fort Wright, Ky, just as happy as these folks shown in the pictures on your website.
    Respectfully,
    Lisa
