I recently ate at this side show of a restaurant while shopping at the mall. The food was mediocre, the service was poor, and their management is rude. Bottom line, I do not recommend this place.

I always overlooked this place because it's located in the mall. However, when I finally did eat here, I immediately regretted that I didn't try it sooner. What a pleasant surprise. The freshly baked foccacia bread and sweet olive oil melts in your mouth like butter. The calamari tastes like it dropped straight from heaven (seriously, order the calamari and tell me it's not the best you've ever had). Chocolate mousse... delectable. Not to mention the open-faced crab melt sandwich. All of it was delightful. I will be back, again and again and again...

The California Cafe is a nice place to eat for a lunch or dinner. It is not for your average mall visitor as the prices tend to be a little bit higher than average. But the food is great and the staff is also great!

I have been eating at this restaurant for many years and I just recently ate there and they have changed thier menu style and food. I think I liked the old menu better but the food it still great, it is more expensive than other places but the food and service is really great. Also the lemonades are to die for!

A little expensive, but the food is good and the service is good. The food is American and they also have a great kids meal selection. The atmosphere is ok.

I got the bento box and was extremely pleased that I did. That day they were serving a shrimp stir-fry...excellent, crab-cakes...average, Chicken with wine sauce...excellent and a salad...excellent. I was verry impressed. The food is a little pricey and the guy serving us seemed very preoccupied, but I was with a large group and we all were pleased with our food and didn't mind waiting.

We've been there two or three times. Each time, the food was wonderful, especially for the suburbs, not to mention a shopping mall. Entrees are presented well. I especially appreciate the gourmet portions so that I'm not wasting food or tempted to over-eat. The food's too good to leave on the plate so smaller portions are just right for me.

We've tried steaks and pasta. They also have mashed sweet potatoes and some great sauces.

However, I'm suspicious about the mixed drinks. Two times I ordered a Mojita and both times the drinks seemed watered down. I usually get a buzz from just one drink; since that didn't happen and the drink tasted like sweetened water, rather than what I've received in other restaurants, I'll avoid mixed drinks next time. Of course, I didn't send it back or ask. My motto: never a good idea to make people who are serving your food mad.

Pros: Food is great especially if you're tried of food from the Food Court.

Cons: Scrutinize mixed drinks. Maybe mall drinks are supposed to be weaker.

food is consistently good, service is nice, great wine list and bar. A bit high end for mall fare, but good for romantic dinner

Pros: food, service

.

The atmosphere and the food at this restaurant are not your typical "mall fare" at all. The cozy dim lighting is wonderful, and the service is super friendly. Plus, the food is just great. Delicious crab cakes, for example. Prices are a bit high end but the food and the ambience are definitely more than worth it.

Despite the fact that this is a "mall restaurant" the food and drinks are excellent. Extensive wine lists and the food is very inspired. Some of the best martini's in town!!
Enjoy.

This is a great place to stop for a glass of wine or salad when shopping. Suggest the Rex Goliath merlot - very affordable and the cheese plate. Although they do have pizzas, everything else on the menu is genuinely innovative and delicious. Nice place to bring family or visitors who like to shop as it's located in the Park Meadows Mall.

Food is consistently excellent with interesting and complex combinations of flavors, wine list is also excellent and diverse. Once inside the mall is not an issue.
