Food and service were good. Always like their California Dreaming Salad.
Our waitress was amazing and the food was great!!!!
Food was awesome...service always on point.will be back
This dinner was an opportunity for me to meet my daughters boyfriend. We always have a hard time finding a place to eat because she’s vegetarian but hates veggies. So when I checked the menu and saw the Beyond Burger, I knew we had to go. When we arrived, it was pretty loud inside, so I asked to sit outside. We got a good table, kinda off on our own. Our server was great and very patient with the grown man who couldn’t decide what he wanted. We all got some drinks from the bar and they came quickly. Great strawberry margarita! I had two. We all loved our food and thought the price was great. We continued to sit and chat. No one rushed us out. I only get to see my daughter a few times a year since I live in another state, so it was nice to have that time to relax and enjoy conversation. No complaints. Lovely time. Will definitely come back!
I have a dairy allergy which our wonderful waiter made very, very certain was not going to be a problem for me during our meal. He double checked everything with the chefs and showed the perfect amount of attentiveness during the meal. The food and atmosphere were great. We will be returning.
Went to grab a late lunch with my mother and auntie! The food was good and the they were covid friendly!
Soup and salad was very good after the salad came back without dressing as I requested the cauliflower appetizer was excellent extra crispy fried exactly how we love
Ribeye Steak was cooked to medium and was so chewy it took forever to be able to swallow. Wasn't just mine it was another person's in the party as well. The manager did come over and was very nice and removed one steak charge from our bill. The mashed potatoes while tasting ok looked like someone had misted them with water. For that much money (bill was still over $100 for 4 people even with mine being removed!) seemed like you would get more like complimentary bread like Longhorns and Outback. We were not impressed and probably will be a while before we will return. Get better at Longhorns and Outback.
Really enjoyed dining at California dreaming! Only downside was I reserved online for a party of 6 and still had to wait to be seated when I arrived! But overall I enjoyed it! Food and drinks was awesome!
Andrea is absolutely the best, friendliest and most professional server in Augusta. Request her if you go!!
Robbie thank you for trying to make the meal better I was looking for a small hamburger with a small bun did not expect such a large bun was not your fault I had surgery two days ago cannot taste things very well I appreciate the fact that you tried I did not ask for Pamela due to previous remarks but I did miss her care but our waitress did a fine job We will wait a couple weeks before we come back hopefully I’ll be feeling better have a good week and thank you again for your care
Good food and service wish they had a better draft beer selection
Just a note for Robbie food it was very good I appreciate your feedback I apologize for any misunderstanding. I know Covid makes things very hard can’t get the same regular menu items but I know you guys are trying and we appreciate it and we try to do our best to keep you safe by wearing our mask inside and follow the rules appropriately we also were the first customers to come back in after restaurant was closed we have tried to be loyal customers have not abandon our local restaurants
Husband ordered the pork chops and were delicious. I had the vegetarian burger and it made me sick. I would recommend changing the patty to a bean or mushroom patty. Service was great and very thoughtful.
Love the salad. Go there just for that! Being a place to feel safe at this time in 2020 is nice.
We asked for a booth in a certain waitress like we do every single week we got stuck in a small booth again the hostess at the front desk had no mask And was eating a sandwich at the front desk from a fast food chain right in front of the manager This is not a good thing with Covid I told management on duty but don’t think he took it very seriously
Two bone pork chop was very good. Chop was tender and flavorful. Filet mignon was excellent too. Also, salad was pretty good with their ranch dressing. This was my first time dining at California Dreaming, and will be going back
We dinned out with some friends (table for 5) this past Saturday early evening and had a really enjoyable time. This was our first visit since February, and due to the virus there were some definite interior physical changes regarding social distancing. Also, some of the staff they we had known had moved onto other opportunities. That being said, Mike did his usual great job behind the bar, and Pamela our server was great. The food was as good as ever and the usual noise level was greatly reduced. We are looking forward to our next visit in a few weeks.
The seafood nachos a must have!
My food was horrible and the waitress was clueless
Waitress made several snarky comments and made myself and my boyfriend feel uncomfortable. Food was amazing as always, but service brought down the experience a little.
Marco did a good job for us today Pamela kept checking in on us restaurant manager always very pleasant to us only complaint is a large party of 32 people was allowed to sing and create havoc with no mask on a large part of the restaurant no mask in sight not a good thing in this environment but we were on the other side the restaurant so did not feel like we were at risk
Good food and service, enjoyed the night out with friends.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful customer service.....................
Pamela was excellent as usual your restaurant manager was very nice house salad with skimpy but manager added to it which was very thoughtful
Great service especially with ensuring Covid-19 precautions were being taken place.
Had a reservation. But still had to wait 30 mins to be seated since all usable tables were occupied. A reservation is a reservation. My table should have been waiting for me.
California Dreaming is one of my family's favorite places to go. The service is always great and the qualify of the meals outstanding.
Only thing was wrong,was our seafood was very salty but the manager took it off our bill but overall everything was good. But the salad OMG the bomb. But we will be visiting again.
I had such high hopes for this place but definitely not worth the money. Overpriced steaks and not cooked properly. The shrimp sanfranciso was terrible. The shrimp tasted like dirt. The noodles were over powering with garlic. The Ceasars salad was drenched with dressing.
Food was great. Our server was slow to our table and slower returning with water refill and to-go box. It was our lunch hour and time was limited.
An above average chain restaurant. Always consistently good.
Great food as always. The ribs are excellent the house salad is wonderful.
Slow service to our table, while attentive to other tables.
Always a pleasant time at California Dreamin. Great food and superb service!
Great food, great service! One of our fav placec to eat dinner!
Sundays do not seem to be a very good day to go we have gone several times this week and the food was wonderful but they seem to have a problem on Sundays manager was super nice Pamela was great bacon on the sandwich was incredibly greasy twice chicken tenders were so greasy and inedible Will continue to go but have to be careful on Sundays baked potatoes were good apple pie awful
The food was good nothing spectacular. The menu is limited now, but we understand why. The drinks we had were not the best. I had the raspberry cosmo and it had almost a medicine fruit flavor so I wouldn’t get that one again. Our server wasn’t the best, they kept calling us kids and questioned our IDs but we are both older than 21 so it was frustrating not being treated like adults.
I love the salads at California Dreaming. And the people. Great people work there.
James was OUTSTANDING & EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING....even from the waiting time..
