    After many times of eating this was the first that the food did not taste the same as normal the meat was overly seasoned and salted the mashed potatoes had more of a over cooked taste that left a awful aftertaste after each bite.Our server is great just the quality of food just did meet the expectations that we have reserved in past dining experience there.

    Server was excellent! Food good as always ... the croissants are extra special:) The only "miss" was we had requested a Booth by te Window in the OpenTable reservation ... not sure if the hostess missed the request or if it wasn't visible in the app .

    Making the reservation on open table I believe helped greatly with our wait time. They were very busy it being a Friday night at 7pm. We were sat 7 min. After our set time, which was good and understandable. The wait staff were nice and efficient. The food was fresh, hot, and tasty. I had the shrimp tacos and my husband had the fried fish platter. Even with the noise of a FULL restaurant the dinner was enjoyable. This was not our first time there and it will definitely not be our last.

    This visit was the first in a few months for me. Based on the previous visit, the service was below par for this place. I think the wait staff had too many tables. The service was very slow for my table as others received their food before us even though they sat later than us. Everything took forever except when its time to pay up.

    The ambience is great, the food is delicious and the server was attentive. We were really looking forward to having the SF pasta but they were out of Alfredo sauce which was a huge letdown. I also didn’t mark the score perfect because we made our reservations for 5:45,l through this app, and when we finished dinner and asked to order dessert, the waiter told us the kitchen had already cleaned up (unbeknownst to us) and we might be able to take it to-go. Why allow people to make dinner reservations if they can’t get the full dining experience? All this to say that California Dreaming, Augusta, has 5 star potential if they iron out a few mismanagement habits. If you dine here without eating the croissants, you’ll miss the most heavenly mouth treat!

    The steak and shrimp was great! The salad and the starter (chicken quesadilla) wasn't the best. My salad had too much dressing while I couldn't tell what meat was used for the quesadilla. Grateful for being seated immediately with my reservation, but next time I will specify not having a seat near the door.
