Service was excellent, seated promptly, one dinner of 2 was substandard, replaced with a new one which was worse. Server noticed and resolved immediately.
The food is always great. When we arrived at the restaurant our table wasn't ready so we had to wait an addtl 15 min but it worked out well.
Food is great. Service is nothing to write home about; slow as usual.
Very good service and not a long wait. Food was excellent
Great food and service. Was surprised, the food was cooked very well.
Clean but dated decor.
Was one of my favorite restaurants in South Carolina when we stayed there many years ago. Recent moved to Atlanta and live about an hour away. Needless to say, I will not be going back. Food nor the ambiance was the same. The waitress was great!!
Centra Archy Restaurants are top shelf in all their various brand segments : California Dreaming, Joey D’s, & NY Prime. Everything was good during our dining experience. Especially, the food (Herb Roasted Salmon with Creamed Spinach as a side, along with their San Francisco Shrimp. Service was good, we had a couple of new servers learning the ropes, but they’ll be fine.
Always have the best experience, exellent menu the food is great and the place is not crowded.
Very nice restaurant. Staff was very kind and friendly. Food was amazing. Definitely would visit again
Was very busy, definitely make sure to make a reservation before going. The Nachos are to die for and the burgers. Only downside was. I was with someone who was having a birthday nothing special was done. Other than that would go back again.
Service was very slow and they made mistakes in the food. Also one person had a fruit fly in her wine.
Great experience. No problems. Food was really good
Had a good time. Food was good. A little overpriced but still worth it for a nice date. Went on valentines so it was a little hectic. Reservations were being pushed back 30 min but things happen and they seemed to get it together after awhile. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Will be back.
They were 45 minutes behind on reservations. What is the point of a reservation then?
We had a reservation for 8:45 pm on Valentine’s Day, had to wait an additional 45 minutes when we got there. Management didn’t seem to have a care in the world. What was the point of making a reservation?
We've been here several times and drive 25 minutes to eat here. Well, after making reservations for only 2 people for Valentine's day at 8:30, arriving 10 minutes early and checking in, we waited for 50 minutes and no text letting us know if our table was ready. We were waiting in our car because there were so many people in the entry way. We tried calling to see if our table was ready but it went to a fax. Instead of making our way back in through the waiting crowd, we decided to leave. Thanks for ruining our Valentine's day. We won't be back.
The food is always good, the service was as well. We were there on Valentines and everything went well except for the fact that we had a 45 minute wait after a reservation.
Waiter was very slow and unresponsive.
Food took over an hour to be served- onion rings came out without the sauce- had to wait 20 minutes for more sauce- 3 different items we asked for were already sold out- dissapoontong
Food and service were great. They were well prepared for a busy Valentine Day. Our server, Katie did an excellent job.
I had reservation to take my wife out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. They seated us on time and service was great even though a bit slow ( as expected on Valentine’s Day). Loved the small bottle of champagnes. We had a great evening!
It was valentines night, so this probably accounts for slow service and noise . Will be back on a regular day
Server was RUDE and inattentive! We had to speak with THREE managers to voice our concerns. We spoke with the restaurant manager first and it was apparent that he was not at all surprised by the server’s attitude. He assigned different server who was fantastic but clearly did not have the bandwidth to take on another table at that moment. In all fairness she did her best to take care of us. The kitchen manager became aware of our concerns and immediately came over to ensure we were taken care of. He didn’t seem surprised about the poor service when we gave him the name of the RUDE server. He offered to make things right and did. For some reason the RUDE server came back to our table even after the reassignment...and his rudeness and passive aggressive behavior continued. In comes a third manager. He too didn’t seem surprised by the poor service we received from the RUDE server. So my question is why was this server even working there when the management seemed keenly aware of his behavior??? My previous experience at this restaurant was great which is why I returned. But this last experience left me extremely unimpressed.
As for the food...our appetizer, salads main course took forever to be delivered...due to the inattentiveness of the RUDE server. Although the food was very good, some of it had to be returned because it was cold.
We usually love this place but our Saturday night visit was awful. Our waiter wouldn’t speak to us, took him 15 minutes to even realize we were there, and when he finally did he huffed & puffed and he was such a jerk. Food and appetizers came all at once & he never came back after we got food. He didn’t even refill our drinks. One server said she hated kids & another was dropping “f” bombs. The food was great but they service was honestly a joke.
We come here often but this was very much an off night. Took us an hour to order our food. They were over run with large parties.
Made reservations for a father daughter dinner before our girl scout father-daughter dance. Unfortunately the service was not good. Took a long time for food to come and appetizers ordered were not received. The restaurant was not crowded so not sure of why service was so slow.
Completely adequate, but doesn't live up to its name. With a name like California Dreaming, I was expecting some very interesting West Coast cuisine, but this was purely typical American cooking. Food was good, but not at all exciting.
Our party of seven had a nice meal. The service and food was very good. The reason I did not give full five stars was that they were out of milk, which one of our guests wanted.
Great food but they ran out of ingredients for the salad but didn’t inform me until I questioned why was my plate full of nothing but lettuce and cheese. I did order something else that was really good.
The service was amazing! The food was really good also.
A great place for semi-casual dinner. We love their fish, steaks, and croissants.
Food and ambiance were exactly what we had hoped for. They have a very expansive menu which was what drew us there to begin with. Being an Egghead and smoking my own ribs for years, I had theirs and have to say not bad at all, would order again.
The customer service was extremely friendly and welcoming.
We made reservations for a party of 9. It took a long time for the server to bring us water or take our order. It was not very crowded. We went at 2pm. Our food came out at different times, our table didn’t have enough silverware, and a medium rare steak came out well done. I’ve been before and never had these issues. Not sure we will pick this place again for family outings due to service
This was the worst food I have ever had in my life. We honestly could have went to Chili’s and had better food. It took nearly 30 mins to get drinks. When the main course came, most of it was cold. The cheese on my sandwich tasted worst than Kaft. I spent $90 on a meal I could have cooked myself for $50. I will never visit another location ever in my life. I can still taste the nasty fries. How do you mess up fries?!? Save your time and money. Go somewhere else!
This was my second visit to the restaurant and it was just as wonderful as the time . I made a reservation and we were seated in a timely manner, the service was great and the food was delicious. I will definitely be returning soon in about two days . I highly recommend this restaurant!
The hostess was rude and obviously couldn’t handle a crowd. They were severely understaffed and people waited longer than they were told. Our server was great though.
Wait staff was very nice but the time it took to get drinks- 30 minutes- & food - 1 hour was not acceptable!!! Quality of food was not very good. Will not be going back there.
My family and I celebrated Thanksgiving there in 2018 and it was great, so we returned this year only to find this experience lacking. First, we waited 20 minutes to be seated. Our food arrived cold after a very long wait. We then had to ask for utensils and napkins to eat. Most worrying was that two members of my family have nut allergies and they were served food with nuts. No where on the menu was this written and our server did not inform us either. I did tell her and the host when we left. This experience was very disappointing.
