Overall good experience.
Made dinner reservation on open table for Saturday night only to find out it was closed when we arrived! Someone needs to address and fix the issue Really disappointing
We showed up for our reservation and there was a sign on the door that the restaurant was closed for dinner for several weeks due to kitchen cleaning. It would have been nice to know before we drove all the way down there. I won't go there again. I am wondering if they got in trouble and got shut down due to a dirty kitchen. Not good to let customers make a reservation then be closed.
I have a dream brunch.... on MLK day
The ritz recommended this place. Try the cloud pancakes, the Austin tacos and the dream eggs benedict
We will be back. 👍
mystic pasta is my comfort food, they gave us 10% off as theater goers without asking!
Wonderful fresh and tasty food, super pleasant and attentive staff, and impressive wine selections presented by a very knowledgeable and friendly wine steward. Loved it an we are thrilled to add this dreamy cafe to our list of favorites!!
I had the acorn squash and it was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant.
I chose this restaurant because of the pictures posted on Open Table which were very decieving. We arrived for our 8:00p.m. reservation and the restaurant was pretty empty, there were only 2 other patrons there. The greeter seemed a bit agitated but we were seated immediately. We ordered the Crab balls as an appetizer, they were delicious, about 15 minutes later Brittany took our dinner order and it took 30 minutes to receive our food. I had a steak and my wife had Shrimp and Grits both were good but not worth the wait. We won't be revisiting this establishment. We were really disappointed.
Not a good place for a business conversation... very raucaous and loud. Noise level also included screaming children. I would go back for casual dining or with friends, but never again for business.
Our most recent return visit for early dinner with one of our tour groups following a theatre matinee on Saturday, October 3, 2015, was NOT pleasant and very disappointing, except for the food.
The manager, Glenn, was short-tempered, snippy and downright rude, especially to me. He acted as though he couldn’t be bothered, even though it was early (around 5:00 pm) and the restaurant was not busy, with most tables empty both and on the patio.
Additionally, the waiter simply could not do his job. He took our beverage order, one of which was for a 9-year old, and after 20-minutes without our having even a glass of water, I had to go inside to get the waiter to tell him to bring out the beverages.
Further, no bread and butter were put on the table while we were waiting for our order. When I asked the manager, he told us we should have ASKED for it. We don’t agree.
Our waiter also could not get each person’s order straight, and NEVER understood we wanted separate checks for 3 people but the rest of the group on one check. We told him THREE times. Instead he gave us a “running total”, on ONE check with a grand total.
When I discussed this with the manager Glenn, he was downright nasty, hostile and angry about making the correction.
If this is the way the manager Glenn treats customers and trains his waitstaff, it’s no wonder most of the tables inside and outside of the restaurant were empty by the time we left at 7:15 pm.

We love Dream Cafe, very laid back and food is great. Not too loud either which is a huge plus in my book. Very helpful to us in choosing a wine, and the suggestion was right on target. Enjoyed the evening!
We've been here at least five times in the last several years, because we go to Theatre Three, which is right behind the Cafe. It used to be hit or miss, depending on their menu. The last two times we've been, it's been "miss." Their dishes are just lacking something. Seasonings? There's not much flavor in anything. We've decided it's as though the menu has been developed by vegetarians who don't really understand non-vegetarian dishes. I wish them luck, but we probably won't be back.
We had not been to Dream Cafe for a while. Glad to see the stuffed Sonoma Squash was still on the menu - I am not a vegetarian, but happy to have this as a delicious and fulfilling meal. We were sad to see the polenta fries were off the menu. Hope they come back !
Found the Dream Cafe on Open Table while seeking an eatery near the Kalita Humphries theater on Turtle Creek, and we were pleasantly surprised. Initially Dream Cafe looks like a small-ish joint, so a natural assumption would be to believe the menu would be equally limited. Not true at all. We enjoyed the more quiet ambiance of the location, coupled with the innovative menu available for an early evening dinner. The wife had scallops in risotto that were beautifully presented and apparently satisfied my spouse' picky tastes. I went the "safe" route with the steak and frite, and was treated to a perfectly done mini-steak with a crisp and hot (no mushy or lukewarm here) mix of russet and sweet potato frite. The wine list was also impressive, and the special being run on 1/2 off Italian bottles was appreciated (though I settled for a glass instead, due to a tight curtain time schedule.) Worth a visit for certain!
Two words: Mystic Pasta! Whenever I eat here, I always plan on ordering something else to eat. But why mess with perfection. As always, the Mystic Pasta is a delicious combination of perfectly cooked chicken, bacon, brie, and bow-tie pasta (among other assorted ingredients). I love this place, and it's probably a good thing that I don't live in the neighborhood. Because if I did, I'd eat hear ALL THE TIME.
