Went to our favorite restaurant for a delayed Mothers' Day on May 19. Since we are 1.5 hrs away, don't get there often enough....have been going since 1986. Food was perfect as always; always must have the filet for special occasions but it's pricey. Daniel was wonderful...AND Thank You for the return of the creamed spinach!!!! Have NEVER had a bad steak! Amazing!!

I went in that restaurant a few weeks ago and ordered a 2 bones pork chop. The meat was completely carbonized, probably cooked under the flame, which is absolutely not good for the health. I don't understand how they can propose carbonized meat to their customers. I don't recommend this restaurant.

Hi Claudionauta, I'm sorry to hear you were less than pleased with our Pork Chops. They are prepared on a SouthBend broiler, one of the very best infrared broilers on the market. Thank you for providing us feedback.

Well here is one restaurant I will never be back to. Usually when you find hair in your food they take 1/2 off or take it off your bill. Nope not this place. My husband pulled a long hair( I have short) out of my salad. I had only ate a quarter of it and was going to take the rest home. After that didn't want to. But still had to to pay for the whole thing. I will never be back

California Dreaming is a favorite stop on our trips back north from visiting Alabama. Our standard fare is always prime rib. We have found that the proportions and quality of the prime rib cut has been very consistent from one visit to the next, even though trips are months apart. Service is always good and we have found meals to be well prepared. Salads, with their signature rolls, is very tasty. Other side items have always been good, but nothing special. Cocktails look very interesting, but never tried one.

This is my third and final trip to California Dreaming. The first trip I ordered a shrimp dish and the shrimp were not thoroughly cooked. They were still grey! This trip, I ordered fried flounder and red mashed potatoes. Don't know what they did to potatoes but they were not goid. The flounder still had the skin on! I have received broiled fish with the skin on but never fried. It was disgusting!
