Good service and food. Unfortunately we had a loud group behind us.
The food is always delicious and the waitress was very friendly and attentive.
This was convenient for both our groups. Great service & good menu
Excellent choice. Have eaten here several times and it was always a very good experience.
We actually went fit the Thanksgiving Dinner this trip. We have eaten here many times and it is always a pleasant experience. We decided it wasn’t worth cooking for 2 this Thanksgiving so we chose California Dreaming. Everything was perfect. The food, service, ambiance, and price weee spot on.
Thanksgiving pre-fix. Very good. A lot of food. Just very busy and noisy
We were seated before our reservation time, server was very friendly and efficient, food was great!
We went for the Thanksgiving meal they prepared. There was a lot of delicious food for a decent price. It was pretty full, but they kept the people flowing very well. Our waitress was Shelli and she was wonderful. Have also been to the one in Greenville and they are consistent with food and service. Excellent value for the quality of food.
Overall the Thanksgiving Dinner menu was ok. The turkey could have been a little less processed. The portions were generous otherwise and tasted pretty good. Very noisy atmosphere. Guess I’m cooking for next year but it was fairly priced in general.
Got seated promptly. Food and service was very good. Staff was all friendly on a busy thanksgiving day
We did Thanksgiving dinner there. That was very well done and way better than other restaurants in the area. My review only reflects that as I have never eaten there otherwise.
Always a great meal here. And the servers are the best!
Great Thanksgiving Dinner! Our server was amazing Will go back again!
Wonderful service… great food… cost is what we expected
Awesome food & service on Thanksgiving Day! Friendly staff & managers on duty serving us. Impressed with their follow up on my reservation!
Excellent Thanksgiving dinner and service!!!! More food than we could eat, everything was delious.
Quick service, great food, and our server was excellent!
We each had the Thanksgiving holiday platter. With some of each holiday special, and ham,and turkey we were all happy with our dinners. Our server, Tiffany, was gracious and accommodating. We will spend Thanksgiving at California Dreaming again.
The restaurant is beautiful. The reception was a very warm greeting. I was seated immediately. The server Susan was very courteous and professional. My food was served promptly and everything was a perfect temperature and delicious. A very outstanding experience.
It was great as usual. Service was great . Good to see the staffed fully.
As always everything was fantastic. We will keep back time after time. Thank you
Our waitperson was pleasant, prompt and attentive. The she crab soup, one of our favorites, was delicious. The croissants were warm and tasty, and the entrees met all expectations.
The waitress was very professional.
she made sure our questions were answered about signing up for Thanksgiving dinner
Went on Veterans Day. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. Waitress was very attentive to us. Pleasant experience.
The restaurant was somewhat hard to find. It is primarily made up uncomfortable booths with hard wooden seats and back. This is not conducive for extended talk with friends Also due to the open environment, it is disturbing if someone is talking loudly next to you. The food was average restaurant quality, nothing special. We will probably not return.
Great experience! Good service, wonderful salad and delicious, tender ribs. We'll definitely come back when we return to Surfside.
Consistently very good food, and fantastic service
Love this place! Have eaten many times here. Last nite ordered prime rib. 1/3 of it was fat. We brought home to our dogs. Planning on eating Thanksgiving lunch here. I know it will be great
Good food and service. Would go there again. Loud atmosphere but ok
We enjoyed our visit to California Dreaming to celebrate our anniversary. The food was good, as usual. I asked for my house salad dressing on the side but it was brought to me on the salad. The wonderful honey croissants were delicious but a bit cold. We asked for extra butter for our baked potatoes and it was also cold and difficult for the potato to melt. The baked chicken and shrimp tacos were tasty, and the speed and friendliness of the service was excellent.
baby ribs where where skimpy.reminds me of a commercial years ago when
the lady asks " where is the meat ? "
Food was ok, service was ok, nothing really unique or special.
The atmosphere was wonderful and our waitress, Jasmine, was phenomenal!
Birthday celebration. The food was great!!
Would of had 5 star rating in all area’s, but my wife ordered her steak medium rare, it came medium well. They replaced it with the properly cooked steak, which took an additional 15 min to prepare.
Service and food is great here. You have to try the house salad.
Music so loud unable to talk, heard several complaints about noise
We had a 6:00 reservation and ate outside. Very pleasant. Our waiter did a good job keeping our drinks refilled and brought our items in a timely matter. I was afraid he would forget about us outside but he did great!
Very good service, once we got service. Waiter was very attentive refills, taking up dirty plates, seeing if we needed anything, etc.
Managment is poor and aloof
Meals had to be sent back to the kitchen twice
When spending over $100.00 for meals the Managment should be invested in the customer experience
However, this is not the case at the Surfside , SC location
