    Perhaps they overbooked for Mother’s Day, they were more than an hour behind in seating and the food was awful. Hopeful this was a one off or we won’t be back.

    We had a 1pm reservation when we arrived we were told they were behind and would be a 45 minute wait and would call my phone. At 2:30p I called and basically they forget to reach out and seat us. No apologies at all. Can’t say we will return here. Knowing this was going to be a busy day restaurant should have be prepared and no reservation should have had to wait that amount of time.

    We were seated at 12:45 for a 12p reservation. We spent an extra $25 on appetizers bc my kids were starving and we were warned by our waiter it would be a long wait for food. By the time our food arrived, we were full of bread, chips and drink and kids were melting down (almost 2pm!). The ambience wasn't great either, as there were dozens of unhappy guests also waiting for their reservations. Not sure where the schedule went sideways, but management should not have taken any walk ins due to so many reservations. We will not try this place again for special occasions.

    We went on Mother’s Day so it was very busy making service slow and quality of food seemed rushed. It’s understandable since it’s normally very good all the way around but they were overwhelmed for sure.

    It is easy to understand why California Dreaming is the favorite restaurant in Baldwin county. Our experience has always been excellent and far above expectations. The entire staff is committed to providing a great dining experience for all their customers. Our server, Caiman, was very attentive to all of the request in our large group. He was very personable as well as providing excellent service. We are always comfortable in recommending this restaurant to our local friends and guests that visit from other areas.
