Diner Reviews
  • "Our waitress, Candice was wonderful and others that helped her were great too."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Loved the prime rib. Blistered Peppers were interesting too. We were seated right away. Service was above average. Oddly for a fairly expensive restaurant the silverware looked like something purchased at a 99 cent store. But that didn't matter to me. Romantic lighting. Good place."

  • "Been here many times but only for breakfast and brunch. Decided to have a birthday dinner with friends and family. What a bust! Food was very average and service was even worse. Pasta was all lumped together (over cooked) so pointed out to the manager. He was nice enough to take it off the bill. However, he had no answer for the server's disappearing act. Disappointed and embarrassed to have suuggested this restaurant for a special dinner."

  • "I've been to this restaurant several times and always had friendly and accommodating waiters/waitresses. The waitress last night was exceptional! Although very busy, she checked on us more than four times. She even had another employee take photos of our birthday celebration as she was terribly busy with the dinner rush. I wish I remembered her name to commend her attentiveness to our table and even allowed us to stay and talk although she was nearing her end of duty. As always, I enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. Even the desk person (female) was friendly and more than patient with one very "needy" person with many demands in our group. Thank you for a wonderful evening for four senior women!"

  • "I took my parents to your restaurant for Father's Day. Unfortunately, my baked potato was not very hot ( the butter would not melt), my steak was over-cooked and my mother's steak was under-cooked. The server was very nice but I think she was easily confused and mixed my mother's order with mine. I traded plates with my mother so as to avoid the lengthy delay in re-ordering. After dinner, our server served me caffeinated coffee when I had requested de-caf. I caught the mistake and received the correct beverage. The manager gave us complimentary deserts but my $250 meal was nothing to brag about."

  • "We had a dinner reservation for two, on a Saturday evening, and wanted to enjoy a romantic evening. We were seated at a table so large, we both had to lean forward to talk. Two tables over a baby was crying (which of course, is not the restaurant's fault). Despite these setbacks, the FOOD WAS SO DELICIOUS and the SERVICE SO FRIENDLY, we will DEFINITELY GO BACK. Hubby had the Rack of Lamb and I had the Wild Shrimp with crème fraiche mashed potatoes. Yummy! Our wine was a perfect pairing to the entrees (Petit Syrah)."

  • "We took Dad there for Father's Day and had a great time! Three of us ordered prime rib and everyone had a great meal. If you're looking for a menued brunch, Cedar Creek has a good variety of items on their menu. I was also surprised at how quickly our food arrive, the service was very good."

  • "First time at the Brea restaurant. Couldn't have been a nicer Father's Day for my husband and the family. The variety of food that suits any appetite is outstanding. You have to come back and try something different each time. I had the braised short ribs. This item is rarely on menus. It was delicious! The meat selection was generous and the side portions were just right. I was lucky to get a same day reservation and as soon as we arrived they seated us with no wait. Usually, with a reservation there seems to be a 15-30 minute wait. It was expensive but well worth it. This is a great restaurant to celebrate special occasions. As a matter of fact, we will be returning for my 50th birthday this October!"

  • "We hadn't been here is several years and it was just as good as we remembered. My daughter and son-in-law took me here for fathers day and it was very enjpyable. Food and service were excellant. I would definitely recommend the rack of lamb!"

  • "I ordered a French dip and was a bit disappointed. The roast beef had little flavor and the roll was very ordinary, not the standard of Cedar Creek. Everyone else in the party loved their entrée. We love coming to Cedar Creek and always enjoy the service and the atmosphere."

  • "Our server was Thom and the occasion was my wife's birthday. I had experienced Thom's excellent manner a few weeks prior at a dinner with a different group. There was a total of six of us for the birthday dinner and, to a person, all were very impressed. The food for each was prepared to perfection (and we had some picky people) and Thom's frequent inquiries as to whatever else we may need did not go unnoticed by anyone in our party. Overall a most enjoyable experience. We will be back!"

  • "Excellent Coconut Supreme Cake!!! My husband and I celebrated our 14th year anniversary and it was great. We wanted more of a quiet, romantic place but with great food and this is it!"

  • "We had not been here for quite some time. Our server, Tom, was excellent! We were celebrating 3 birthdays in our party of 6. He brought us each a little birthday treat and split the bill amongst the three couples. Bread and salads were wonderful. "

  • "The food was fabulous! The whole family enjoyed the dinner. From a 6 year old to an 87 year old. My dad is in a wheelchair and we had no problem getting him into the dining room and our table. My sister is on a strict gluten free diet and they had a large gluten free menu, including deserts! The service was great too! "

  • "Cedar Creek provides a well rounded menu for my party of four to choose from. It's an ample serving of food but not too much and the presentation is good. It's also a central location for us to meet since we are spread throughout So. California."

  • "Went here on Saturday night. Arrived early to enjoy a nice martini which was reasonably priced at $10.00 and one of the best I've had in a long time. There was a piano in the bar also with a gentleman singing. Our reservation was for 6:30 but being we were enjoying the bar we didn't go to our table until 6:45. Our waiter Tom was excellent. He never rushed us and we took our time from ordering, eating dinner to dessert. I think we were there over 4 hours. I ordered the prime rib and substituted the mashed potatoes for the risotto. In the future I would keep the garlic mashed as the risotto was rather plain. We ordered the coconut cake for dessert which we shared and couldn't finish but it was excellent. Can't wait to go back. "

  • "They had a very nice gluten free menu selection. very accommodating. The non gf salmon & chicken entrees were delicious & beautifully presented. The chopped salad was a good size and very good. My teenage son's burger was large enough that he only left a few bites so he could save room for the toll house pie which he devoured. The flour less hazelnut brownie sundae w/espresso chocolate was divine. Nice venue. Great service."

  • "Just wanted to give my review. My party was a total of (8) ladies and all of us had a wondeful experiance at Cedar Creek Inn-Brea. The food was delicious, the waitress was very attentive to where we really felt pampered. My guests really had a wonderful time and the serving of the cake & coffee was the best part. We are all thinking of getting together again at Cedar Creek Inn in the very near future. "

  • "Perfect spot for that special evening: prom, graduation, anniversary, birthday. Not good for that quiet, romantic evening with that special someone, the food is fine but the noise and crowding take away that intimate feeling. The staff was friendly and the service was good if just a bit rushed. The decor is casual but very nice. Saw casual to formal attire and all fit in perfect. Cedar Creek is close to being expensive so have a good time but expect to pay for the pleasure. Big group room is the enclosed patio, pretty nice. Not a place for little kids. Reservations are the smart way to go. If the group is 7+ they will suggest an 18 or 20% gratuity, saves time in figuring it out yourself."

  • "I know it was Mothers day. I know I made reservations late. But......The staff was overloaded. We were seated in an adjacent patio in plastic chairs (uncomfortable), blazing sun (no shading, except for a bus boy rigging some table cloths). I should have been informed that is all they had. Not the experience I was expecting, nor what I paid for. Those issues put aside, the food was not on par either. No excuses on the food. We toughed it out. Kind of embarrassed I took my Mom there. She deserved better."

  • "I have been going to the Brea site for years and for the first time I can honestly say that I was a bit dissapointed. Not by the food or service...but by the clientel being served. DON'T YOU HAVE A DRESS CODE?? Its sad when parents DONT PARENT their kids... I was so embarassed to bring my family on mothers day where we sat next to SEVERAL groups of people in shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, gang hats and beenies. Kids climbing walls, running around tables playing music on their phones and the best yet.....a family brought in their own canned food and sat the jars right on the table.....for all of us to look at. I think for the money you spend at this upper class place....you should start ENFORCING the dress code and control your child rules"

  • "Once again, we chose Cedar Creek Inn for that "Special Occasion Dinner" and as usual, not disappointed! An extremely busy day as Mother's Day to go out and celebrate our 92 year old Mother, we luckily made a reservation at Cedar Creek Inn. Upon arrival, we were seated directly upon checking in to a full restaurant. It was packed! That should tell you something!!! From a Mother's Day Menu which is a consolidated version of some of the best of the best meals we started of with 2 orders of Coconut Shrimp. Unbelievable...absolutely the biggest, most delicious, appetizer! Fantastic choice! Dinners were, salmon, 2 shrimp dinners, and an end cut prime rib! All excellent, including our salads. Of course, My Long Island Ice Tea, great! "
