California Dreaming - Duluth
My family and I celebrated Thanksgiving there in 2018 and it was great, so we returned this year only to find this experience lacking. First, we waited 20 minutes to be seated. Our food arrived cold after a very long wait. We then had to ask for utensils and napkins to eat. Most worrying was that two members of my family have nut allergies and they were served food with nuts. No where on the menu was this written and our server did not inform us either. I did tell her and the host when we left. This experience was very disappointing.
We dined at California Dreaming-Duluth for Thanksgiving Dinner. Our family was pleased with the menu, and the service was EXCELLENT!
Great service & food was good! Went for the first time for Thanksgiving meal & enjoyed it.
Went for Thanksgiving because we didn’t want to cook. Great food and staff and was seated before our reservation.
Service starting with the hostess who seated us was extremely poor. The food was lackluster. Glasses and dishes were allowed to accumulate on the table. The best thing was the ambiance, but it's not enough to bring us back.
Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with family. Will visit again.
The server was annoyed to be there for Thanksgiving. She didn’t smile once and was rude. Thanksgiving meal wasn’t good. Turkey had no flavor and neither did the gravy. We got pumpkin pie and it wasn’t good. My husband offered to pay for another desert and she said we don’t have anything.
I won’t be back.
Food was excellent and cooked with good flavoring. Entrees were good but dressing,gravy and cranberries were better than most restaurants.
It is the first time that we were the group of the company to celebrate THANKSGIVING. We made the reservation of 10 and we were 12, the table was improvised but nobody liked how they placed us,The rest like food and service was fine. I think we will NOT make any other reservations.
Fried Shrimp New Orleans Po’ Boy is always a go to.
Great service - awesome food - wonderful lemon drop Martinis 🍸.
Natalie was great! Food was perfect as always. Love this place!!
We had a very nice meal and our waitress, Deanna, was great. The food was delicious and cooked to our individual requests. In my case, California Dreaming also had a great IPA beer for me to enjoy. My wife was also very positive of her Malbec glass of wine. Ending our dinner, Deanna brought me a second cup of coffee without any request from me and was much appreciated. Will request Deanna on our next visit too.
Fish shouldn't smell or have a strong fishy taste. We had a good time but not because of California Dreaming. The music sucked. Not appropriate for the crowd, over fifty. Veterans.
First time dining with California Dreaming for Veterans Day and I can say I felt appreciated. Thank you! You have earned another customer.
Great meal and service as veterans we appreciate the recognition and generosity
Good food. Seems they've cut back on the size of their main entree salads.
The food was very good. Club sandwich and roasted veggies and the California Dreaming salad. Drinks are reasonably priced and a decent size pour.
We had high hopes. Our server was great. Very kind and very quick . Unfortunately the food was way too bland for the prices. The best tasting thing was the croissant with honey butter and that speaks volumes. My fiancé got sick off of the salmon later that night. We all agreed its not worth returning to.
Excellent as always
Excellent food with attentive service. The decor is all wood with high ceilings. We really enjoyed it.
We had a family luncheon. It was a party of 12. California Dreaming was perfect! Our waitress was super attentive and sweet. The food was excellent and fast. Thanks for a great lunch!
We enjoyed our meal. Our waiter was very nice but not too attentive- we don’t want someone who hovers but gives a bit more attention so that we don’t have to ask another to get the waiters attention.
As with most restaurants today the noise level can be distracting.
Had a 6:00 PM reservation; arrived at 5:59 PM. Was told we would be seated shortly. Asked again at 6:15. PM. Was told we would be seated shortly again. At 6:25 PM, asked if we would be seated in the next 10 minutes. I was asked if we minded a table top. We said no and were seated. We had somewhere to be and had to rush through our meal.
I always love dining at this restaurant. We have celebrated many birthdays and dined there for Thanksgiving one year. They never disappoint our family..... Great restaurant!
The food was just average and the service poor. This restaurant needs to up their game if they want to stay competitive.
The food was good and the server was very pleasant. It was my husband's first time at the restaurant and he loved it!
Awesome and beautiful place! The server was awesome too we enjoyed!!!
Nice visit, quiet for a Sunday but it was Labor Day weekend.
Was not impressed by food . Definitely had better
Service was poor until end of meal and time to pay
This Restaurant is very inviting. The food and service was Great and I would highly recommend
We had four people eating. Three of us had wonderful meals. The fourth had the salmon and it wasn’t as good as expected. The dining area was very cold! The service was great.
Pretty good restaurant. Server was excellent. Bartender didn't know how to make a mojito properly- didn't muddle the mint leaves, had to do it myself.
We sat on the balcony - great service. Could use a better wine list. Would definitely go back.
Our server was phenomenal! Drinks and food and desserts were all delicious! Would highly recommend!
Everything was wonderful and correct in our Order. We will be going again soon
Service was slow, food was great doesn't explain menu real well (ordered rolls when they came with meal) otherwise good experience.
It was a wonderful experience!
The service, ambience and food was exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We were seated quickly which was good but it took us a while to get a waiter. The food was decent but not great.
