Very enjoyable meal. Covid precautions were good. Service was good. Only objection was that we ordered dessert then were told that the kitchen was closed. Don’t take late reservations if you are in such a hurry to close.
Selected the Columbia California Dreaming for dinner with a special lady in my life. We were promptly seated and selected a bottle of nice rose for our beverage. We both ordered dinner salads, a grilled salmon salad for her and a chicken ceaser salad for me. Our meals came out perfectly fixed and promptly. Our server was great. We will return.
Great job. Thank you!
Came from Charlotte
Our experience was very nice! Our waiter was not obnoxiously checking in on us every second like most American dining experiences.
The food was excellent and quick.
The service was very quick and friendly.
It was very good as usual! I do wish there was more lighting in the bathrooms though.
Definitely did not live up to previous California Dreaming experiences. Ordered a daiquiri that was served with a paper straw and it tasted like strawberry purée with chunks of ice. The food and service were OK. Everything was served way too quickly. The entrees were served before we started our salad. I would not ever go back to this location. On top of all that I got zero Open Table points.
I use to love going to this restaurant the croissants and the blackened chicken pasta use to be my favorite but this past time I was disappointed in the food even my dessert. The brownie was dry the dressing tasted off, the pasta was cold and the taste was no where what it use to be. My server seemed a little frustrated but we did get everything we ordered. Overall the food didn’t taste like it has in the past.
Great meal and company!
Dislikes paper straws.
Very nice atmosphere and friendly environment. Croissants and salads are greatly.
The bourbon salmon was great. The mash potatoes is always on point.
Great food and wonderful service. Servers very friendly and outgoing.
Our waiter was excellent! Very attentive. Made the experience wonderful. Food was excellent, as well.
The food came out quickly and was delicious. Our waiter was attentive and answered our questions graciously.
First time there and will definitely be back!!!!!!
We recently ate at CD-Columbia which was during the COVID-19 period and mask ordinance in Columbia. The food was wonderful as it always has been. The service was really outstanding. The environment was calm and relatively quiet while we ate early on a Thursday evening. Thank you CD-Columbia for a wonderful family meal.
We had a wonderful experience as always!
We made a reservation due to the current circumstances and we still had to wait for 12 mins when there were tables open, if we hadn’t driven 40 mins to get there, perhaps it wouldn’t have been that annoying. It was hot in the bar area, which is funny since you want your patrons to buy a drink but it’s uncomfortable to do so. I also thought it was odd that the servers had to be in long sleeve white button down shirts and slacks with a long apron (very formal) yet there were bartenders in shorts and tank tops - seems a little odd. Either you’re trying to be fine dining and have a dress code that applies to everyone, or you’re not and everyone should be comfortable for the summer. Seems to be favoring bartenders, even though everyone runs around so I’m not sure why they get special treatment. I used to be a server, so I just see that as unfair and also backwards. Other than that, the service was good, the food was good, and my drink was ok (was not really cold, but I had water so I just added ice). Not sure I’ll drive 40 mins again to eat here, but if you’re in the area it’s a nice place, you should go once just to see the architecture - it’s beautiful.
Rolls are AMAZING!!! Everything was really good. Would recommend to a friend.
Great place, I didn’t like the steak and shrimp though.
It’s not like it use to be it was my bday no brownie and ice cream the food was cold looked different taste a little different I’m not sure what has happened
Our waitress, Kara M. was fantastic! She deserves recognition and a bonus !!! We will ask for her next time for sure!
My favorite place to eat.
Menu had changed but wasn’t informed before placing my order..
The food was delicious and the service was great...
Food was outstanding and our server was very attentive. She recommended some great drinks.
Excellent Service and delicious Food since 1984. A Columbia South Carolina Jewel inside a 1902 Union Atlantic Railroad Station. Architecture extremely uncommon anywhere in the United States.
This is my go to place. The food is always great and so is the service. Build one in Charlotte, NC please so I can stop my commute.
What a fantastic night we had just having a double date night! Food was fantastic and service was good. Definitely will be doing again!
Excellent Prime Rib and service. Would definitely go back.
Service was outstanding, very attentive and friendly. This makes the experience worth while.
My reservation was at 6pm. We were seated promptly, the service was exceptional and the food that much and more. As this was our first time, we’ll definitely come again.
I ordered the po boy shrimp version. The sandwich was good. The fries were subpar. Overall the experience was ok. the waitress was blah. At times she seemed to be annoyed with us.
Awesome service and atmosphere for a date night. The food was delicious and the portions were huge! We will definitely be back soon!
We enjoyed the evening, but it was very noisy and loud!
Food is amazing. Wonderful venue. Somewhat slow, inattentive service but a very worthwhile evening.
We had reservations for 7 pm.
Were not seated until 7:35.
Took a wile to get our drinks.
Finally received our food around 8:25( only ordered 3 salads and a bowl of soup) soup wasn’t brought out and one of the salads came out wrong... added cheese and friend has severe dairy allergy. New salad came out and still no soup. Finally we got them to bring out soup and it was lukewarm. We were eating and my daughter pulled out a huge hair from her salad after she had eaten half of it. We were all sick after that and couldn’t finish the food. We never got refills on our drinks in all of this time until server brought check.
This was California Nightmare instead of Dreaming.
Made a reservation for a reason, these seated us 45 mini to an hour later. Food was mediocre. Service was horrible. Saw the waitress a total of two times.
Worst experience ever. Had 6:30 reservations and never got seated. Was told by the hostess to go do self seating at the bar when I asked how much longer it would be. Blamed the other customers in the restaurant. I would not waste my time trying to eat there. We finally got a text telling us our table was ready at 7:30. Met 7 people who had the same reservation time as we did. We left at 7:15 as we had ballet tickets for the 8 pm performance.
