Server was not attentive to our needs. Pleasant but not attentive. Had to ask several time for the same items & some we never received.
Everything was great even though it was a busy Mother’s Day crowd. Loved the food and service. Always love eating here😋
Ordered the blackened chicken and pasta, but the chicken didn’t have a lot of seasoning to. Otherwise we had a nice time at a very busy restaurant.
Reserving a table via the website was great! The wait was about 10 min. The food was good. I like that the menu changes a bit now but I miss some of the items that were cut. Like spinach nachos. Overall, it’s still one of the best restaurants in Augusta.
Great food as always.
I ordered the Flounder dinner and it was not good at all. The Flounder tasted fake.
Had the veggie burger and fries cook did an excellent job! Our server Debbie was extremely attentive
Service was poor. Sat for an extended period of time without silverware only to be told, none was clean. Requested to go utensils and still had to request it on more than one occasion. Food was incorrect & cocktail was entirely too strong!
California Dreaming had excellent food and excellent service. I really enjoyed the blue cheese dressing with the wings we ordered and even ordered some to go! Our service was excellent and the patio was beautiful to sit on on a sunny day. I would definitely come back here. Our food was excellent and came out very quickly. They also have a great wine and beer selection and a great selection of other drinks for evening.
The only thing I can say nice was that the food was AMAZING other than that I won’t be coming back anytime soon
Been to this location several times but this was our first Sunday evening.
Mike at the bar was providing his usual great service, and Karen was very attentive once we were seated at our table. The food was very good once it reached our table as we had a wait of almost an hour for meals for our table of four. Once the food was finally served, my wife's rib eye was burnt to a crisp and was sent back to the kitchen. She received her correctly cooked steak in short order. The kicker was that the restaurant was about half full. Don't know what their problem was but this was well below par for them even during the pandemic. No more Sundays.
We have ate at several California Dreaming restaurants and this by far was the least of my favorites. It was so noisy it just felt like I was eating at a bar. Had to send back food. Was very disappointed! It was mine and my husband's birthday dinner and it was very disappointing.
Our waitress was rude and seemed irritated at my mom for taking a few extra minutes to order.
Our server was neither friendly nor attentive. The food was horrible!! Steak was seasonless and the fried fish was mushy and over cooked.
The BEST salmon in Augusta and Evans!! It’s perfect every single time I go. Our food was delicious and server was amazing! I was there yesterday but the restaurant messed up my reservation and indicated that I was a no show but I came early and was seated. It was straightened out however I didn’t get to review my time there on yesterday.
Dinner was excellent as usual!
Waitress was rude and not very knowledgeable about menu or services. Food was cold and took forever.
This was our second time eating here. The cowboy steak was great. The steak and shrimp plate was very good as well. The side salads that came with the meals were excellent with the added surprise of a crescent roll. My other side was the green beans which were unexpectedly tasty. There are other items on the menu we want to try next time, but these selections will be hard to beat. The service was very good. We will return.
We were seated promptly, and our waiter was very nice! But we couldn't take the level of noise in the restaurant! We couldn't hear each other talk, and strained to hear the waiter. We had to leave before ordering! It was THAT NOISY! We don't have any idea if the food is good or not.....but we'll never go back to find out! It was like sitting in a noisy cafeteria! That is definitely NOT the evening out we are looking for! We asked about the outdoor dining space, but that was not open yet.
The food was great as always and our waitress was very attentive.
Great meal and good service as always. The specials change per season or holiday so it is disappointing when old favs disappear.
We had great service and a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend!
They sat us 5 minutes before closing and we had to rush to order our food and eat. We ended up taking our food to go.
Overall, the service is good. I’m not a fan of the texture of the Steak. My boyfriend enjoyed the Burger and Fries. The Bread Rolls are good too.
Great nice friendly food was good and hot and I will return
Great food and good price. This has been a family favorite for quite some time. Haven’t been disappointed. We had a new waiter and he was okay but I’m sure he will get better with time. He just kept forgetting things we asked for but would remember when he reached the table without it.
The food was great, excellent portions. The ambiance was perfect, loved the stone walls with the exposed wood. We were sitting close to the bar a a party had gotten really loud but after they left it was nice.
My Moscow mule needed more ginger beer and the waiter was very helpful. My soup was cold so my husband ate it 😀 just wasn’t what I was use to from California Dreaming.
Our server, Victoria, was amazing! Great food. We will definitely go again
My daughter wanted to eat here for her 17th birthday. Everyone enjoyed their food, and service was fantastic.
First time at California Dreaming, chose it to celebrate Valentines Day. We found a hair on the steak. That right there killed it for us. We didn’t even get a 10% discount. My food was good but I felt terrible
Great environment! Wait time wasn’t bad once we got to the restaurant. And the food was amazing
Dinner was amazing and customer service was great will highly recommend
Was called within 15 mins of reservation on a busy Valentine weekend. Food and service were great!
Valentines day weekend. We had a reservation and were seated with zero wait! Food was great (Riley and shrimp tacos) and loved our server. Fun atmosphere.
The food was great but quickly got cold because we were right under air vent and it was freezing and was freezing and damp outside. Why do you have to have it so cold inside? Plus we had to ask about special it was not offered to us and that’s what we ordered
California Dreaming always does a great job. The salads are large with plenty of toppings. The steaks are tender and cooked to perfection and the baked potatoes are the size of a baseball. As usual, Chris did a fantastic job taking care of us...
Great place. We come about once a month and while they are usually busy, the wait time isn’t terribly long. It would be nice if the bar area was a little larger to have a drink before dinner. Food is always good and the servers are first rate.
