We arrived about ten minutes before our reservation time and were seated promptly. It’s the first restaurant I’ve been to in a year that was properly staffed. Everyone enjoyed their mea. Our server was attentive and kept our glasses full. Would definitely go again.

This is a nice moderately priced restaurant with the best salad I've ever had. If you eat here, do not miss the house salad with the house dressing - either the side size or the entre size. The service and food are very good. My only complaint is the very loud noise level which makes dinner conversation difficult. Recommended.

Never have been to this restaurant so decided to go since it was recommended by a friend of my fiancé’s. We both were disappointed with the food quality (including appetizer and main dishes). Cali-Flower needed to be cooked longer. Salad they are known for used lettuce that one can get out of a bag of salad. My mashed potatoes were brown and just seemed like they weren’t fresh. Pork chops were pretty good though, they just needed some gravy in my opinion to go with the seasoning they used. They forgot dinner salad until I had already gotten my food. The wait staff was friendly and professional though even while training a new person.

The server was amazing. The restaurant seemed understaffed. The food quality and portion have significantly declined. I’d skip going back. We drove 30 minutes out of our way to go there. We are disappointed.

Food was served fresh and hot from the kitchen! Debbie provided the service and was outstanding! She anticipated our every need without our having to ask. Everything was served promptly. We will definitely return. We had the house salads with house dressing, chicken strips, baked potato soup, and baby back ribs--everything was GREAT!

The server was rude and another server came sound to refill drinks.

Our appetizer came half way through our meal cold. When dinner came we asked server where it was. We were told the kitchen was busy. I personally made reservations for 11:30 so it would not be crowded. Very disappointed.

Told the hostess on way out about it.
I go there often and this was my first bad experience

The Waiter Chris was Awesome, attentive, made sure your order was correct. First time visiting the city and the restaurant, will definitely come back. The food was hot, fresh and delirious. The drinks were OMG the bomb. Chris made us comfortable in our decision to come back again.

Very typical chain restaurant. Not a long wait for food, food was decent for what you would expect of a chain. It was good, a nice experience but nothing fancy or out of the ordinary. Nothing bad to say

Delicious meal. Waitress wasn’t friendly, it was obvious she didn’t want to be there. She was very inattentive and we had to ask another waitress for a drink refill. She brought the check to us before asking if we wanted dessert, which we did. Again, the food was delicious.

Table was wet when we sat down . I had San Francisco shrimp they were good not great - over seasoned,more then enough food. Husband had steak, cooked right- mashed potatoes that weren’t creamy and still had lumps. And he didn’t like the coleslaw very liquidy. The beer was cold- my sour good. Might eat lunch there if someone suggested it

Several times here and mostly the food is charred. They did it with the ribs badly, chicken was burnt charred and dried, steak was over seasoned and charred too much. Grill is obviously not in control of flames. Manager offered no support but servers agreed it was an ongoing issue to char most of the foods. Guess they don’t know how to cook s as my other way

We went for my sons 25 birthday. I really wish CA Dreaming would do something for birthdays. Our server said it was not their policy. Plenty of other restaurants do. So I’ll remember that next time we celebrate a birthday or anniversary.
