“Lost in the park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Picture a glass walled restaurant above a waterfall in a sculpture park, sound interesting? Now picture this restaurant empty not a single customer but an extensive staff at the ready. Add to this picture dirty stained menus find your own table sort of help yourself but wait it gets better. No ice tea, a bowl of artificial sweetener on the table full of already used packets. Now for the food, hot dog looked like it was left over from a ball game, last year! "Best" fish sandwich looked and tasted as if it had been fried in motor oil. Chicken cesar salad not bad. By the end of the meal with still without any other customers our waitress slapped the check on the table, wham, bam, thank you m'am. A word about the restrooms. Remember the restroom in the back of the bar in Hati you know the one with all the lizards that looked as if it was last cleaned twenty years ago, well you know it was almost as clean as this one, disgusting...
