    We had to send out potatoe soup back 3 times to get it heated up, the steak medium was bleeding all over the plate and the loaded potatoe with no sour cream was soaked with sour cream! Lesson for today if you want your order right you might want to visit another restaurant…..

    Food was good, but the service was not great. Our orders were wrong when the food was brought to the table, and our waitress was not the best. However, the manger was great and order was corrected. We recommend based on food but not on service.

    CD is the only restaurant my wife and I have visited that does not honor reservation times. We had a reservation at 6:45 and weren’t seated until 7:10. This seems to always be an issue. Every other place we book, they seat us immediately when we walk in or at the appointed time of we’re early. CD had a long-standing tradition of making you wait and wait because they don’t manage reservations and walk-up requests properly. Either don’t have reservations or honor them. That’s the whole point of a reservation….you book a table so that it is specifically reserved at that time for you.

    Great experience. We’re seated as soon as we arrived which was 15 minutes before our reservation. Food and service was good. They ran out of baked potatoes so we ordered mashed instead. They came and were definitely not hot but were quick to replace and ended up getting a baked potato as a replacement. Knob Hill chicken was fabulous and overall a great experience.

    I had the best service experience I have ever . Our waiter brought us hot damp towels for our honey covered fingers, I didn’t even know they offered such a service. We requested extra dressing which arrived well before our salads and when our waiter didn’t see enough dressing on our salad he went and brought us more without even being asked. Jose, I know I am spelling his name wrong, was amazing. The dreamin salad was a little disappointing. We both ordered it. The size and amount of meat are about 2/3 or less of what we used to get. I could never finish this salad before and last night we both left hungry. The dreamin salad has been my go to for 20 years but it may become my gone too after this experience.

    We arrived for 6:30 reservation (party of 4). Waiter was very good, courteous and prompt. We waited about 30 minutes for food to arrive. Food was good, but not excellent. Nachos were warm but not hot, and became cold before finishing. Ribs were good, but not as moist and tender as in the past. The California Dreaming salad is one of my favorites here and never disappoints.

    California Dreaming has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years. Sadly, it has been diminishing in the last two years. Their menu has changed with fewer outstanding items. The good items that remain have gotten smaller in size and are not of the same quality. Last night I ordered the chicken pasta Alfredo. It was practically dry with very little Alfredo sauce and the portion was small. My wife ordered the shrimp platter which was 80% french fries and 20% shrimp. The service has really declined. We ordered sweet tea with lemon but received regular tea with no lemon. We exchanged it but again no lemon. We requested straws for the tea three times. We had ordered the famous California Dreaming salad as an appetizer and instead received a bowl of lettuce with the honey mustard dressing. When I pointed it out to the waitress she simply said “OK“ and walked away. After many years of dining pleasure I doubt that we will be back.
