Dinner is good

Went there at 6:30 PM on a Saturday for their Prime Rib special. While waiting for friends about 6:10, I took a walk around the place. Almost no one in restaurant. At 6:30 it was more than half full. By the time we left it was almost at capacity. Good thing we had reservations for a birthday... read more

I ate at the Cafe California several times during a recent stay at the Wyndhma. The breakfast entries were very tasty (but expensive) and they offer a breakfast buffet. My room did not include the buffet. If you can get it included, that would be a savings. I was very disappointed in the lunch time service, but the food was... More

My family and I were out in Visalia enjoying a little family time. We stumbled upon Cafe California while searching deals through Groupon. Jose was our waiter for the evening and he was phenomenal! His service and attentiveness was unlike any I've ever experienced. He even made the kids ice cream special to appease their taste-vanilla with chocolate drizzel along... More

While staying at Wyndam, we ate breakfast there every morning. Trisha, one of the servers, would see us come in and have all the extras at the table before we filled our plates. The hostess would always seat us at our favorite table and those kind of things make you feel like they're glad you're there. We didn't eat dinner... More

Dinner - not good. The first night I had something easy; A French Dip. Meat was too thick, very gray, and very fatty. I took it back to my room to try to salvage it, but after removing the fat it was just very unappetizing. Second night I went for Italian Wedding Soup - WAY TOO MUCH PEPPER! Couldn't finish... More

Have lunch here at least once a week with colleagues and guests. Great service, freshly prepared food and a nice ambience make this a fantastic location for business lunches

We ate there for lunch at noon on Sunday. Not many customers. Very good service from person that seats us who was also our server. The three of us had different sandwiches using a Groupon coupon. The sandwiches were good but what all of us enjoyed were the beer battered fries. Not like beer batter on fish. Very lightly battered.... More

We always use a $25 coupon from Restaurant.com that we get for a good price. You then spend the required $50 and get a great value in return. The food is really good and the service is excellent. Are waiter is usually Jose and you couldn't find a better waiter. We almost always get the prime rib special that they... More

We just went back for the Prime Rib and weren't disappointed. It comes with a salad, vegetables and mashed potatoes along with Au Jus and horseradish sauce. The quality and flavor was very good along with great service from our waiter. My wife and I split a slice of carrot cake which was also very good.
