It is pretty consistent and the service is pretty good also. We have been going to this restaurant since it opened. We do like the food.

California Dreaming has great food at reasonable prices. I have been to this many times and the food is always spot on. The bar isn't the greatest, but the food makes up for that. I will keep coming back!

Have not stopped by Cali Dreaming in a while but I am glad I did today. Met a friend for lunch and had the usual great meal. I had a Club and it was excellent. Service was great we sat at a high top by the bar. It was pretty slow day as the rain was pouring down outside, that... More

California Dreaming is looking and feeling very tired and old. This could be a great restaurant (again) but they seem to have given up. We had a business dinner here the other night because it was convenient, not because it was great. Don't get me wrong, the service was fine, the food was fine, the wine selection was fine.... everything... More

Went to California Dreaming for the first time in 20 years. Didn't remember it being as upscale as the one in Duluth, Ga. The service was good, our waiter didn't have the most motivating personality, but everything came as requested, he did a good job servicing our table. The food was excellent. I had the blackened chicken pasta, and it... More

We ordered the two racks of baby back ribs and split it between us:) Our server split the salad and veggies for us, too. It was a huge order and plenty for two:) We finished our meal with key lime pie and a yummy Hersey bar topped brownie. Our server was very attentive and kept us in sweet tea and... More

We come here at least once a month just to have their chicken fingers. The appetizer portion is perfect for one with a side dish. These chicken fingers are so juicy and tasty! We enjoy their green beans as a side dish...mmm good! Prices are reasonable especially for the quality and portions.

Nice atmosphere, clean, bright and wide open. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. But Food is only fair at best. Salads are Great, oyster po-boy, fish po-boy are very fishy tasting and dried out, roast beef sandwich was dry and bland. A little pricey for Lunch. Stick with Salads!

I liked the steaks but did not like the limited choices. Not many healthy eating choices. The staff was ex good and the beer was cold.
