    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/24/2014
    We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. We hadn't been to Cedar Creek for a long time. I called and made a reservation and when we arrived there was no one at the front desk. We waited awhile and then we were greeted by a Hostess. When we gave our name she was quite friendly and wished my wife a Happy Birthday. We were seated and our waitress came quickly to our table. She never said her name and was not friendly at all. She only came once to make sure we didn't need anything and when we were finished, she brought the the check.

  • Don't ask for split bills...

    Dined on 7/24/2014
    The service was mediocre but nothing terrible. However, at the end of the meal, we asked for split bills. We were told to ask at the beginning (maybe we should have asked but nothing was on the menu requiring it). She didn't want to do it....said she would have to void the entire order and re-ring it. Well, we were on business so we needed split bills. Her attitude changed. It was horrendous. She became rude and standoffish....over splitting the bill. She ruined her tip from all 4 of us because of it. It was so stupid to get angry, take it out on us, and just be rude because of it. Sad....

    I found out about this restaurant from open table and was really impressed with the service, surroundings and quality of food. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was well worth it and we will plan to go back to the restaurant and perhaps will bring our friends next time. Thank you open table for recommending a good restaurant.

    food4theheart
    Dined on 7/18/2014
    When making the reservations, I told them it was an anniversary celebration. Upon arriving at the restaurant, I again let them know it was an anniversary celebration. At the end of the meal, nothing was acknowledged regarding the anniversary. It was a letdown being that we brought our friends there for dinner to celebrate their anniversary. Wait staff needs to follow through on special occasions. Our waiter only checked back with us one time shortly after food arrived and of course never mentioned an anniversary.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 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).

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
