Small portions are for supermodels! Whether you’re looking for the taste of a thick, juicy burger, “fall-off-the-bone” baby back ribs or award winning salads, there is something for everyone.

While we had a positive dining experience, I don't feel the price truly reflects the quality of the food. My food did not challenge something I could get at Outback or a similar restaurant and I could pay at least 20% less. Our dishes also arrived all at once (appetizers, salads, and entrees) which made it awkward for our small table and breaks a fairly common rule of dining timing. Over all, try it if you like, but there is better out there for the same price.

I have been dining at California Dreaming (mostly for special occasions) since they opened in the 1980's. And, I have always loved the food. It has been a year or so since I have been there. Last night I was sorely disappointed. I wouldn't refine too much upon it if it were just one thing, or, if I had been the only one in the party to notice. The quality of the food was just not what it used to be. The salad is definitely missing something in the dressing recipe. The croissant was hard, my baked potato was not hot (though a good size), and the prime rib was not as good as it used to be. I don't usually post any reviews, but my hope is that maybe there are others who have noticed the same things and that management at CD will not let this great food establishment succumb to a mediocre one.

Me and my husband were recommended to come here by some people he works with. We recently moved here from Pittsburgh. And it was great! Service was good and quick. The mashed potatoes are amazing. He got knob hill chicken and I got the BBQ chicken and both were great. Will definitely be visiting again!

California Dreaming in the old train station. The building is huge,the food is good and the service is great. Salads were excellent as are the croissants,the potato soup is great and my shrimp dinner contained large size shrimp that were breaded lightly just like I enjoy. Our first visit to California Dreaming and definitely not our last.
