I have enjoyed everything that I have tried on their menu. My all-time favorite is the California Dreaming salad. It is not a salad for dieters but the combination of ingredients with their special house dressing is worth every calorie!

We, along with many of our family and friends have frequented this California Dreaming Restaurant in Duluth many times since they opened. We have always been very happy with the food, service, and overall experience. Their croissants and side salads are to die for, better than any restaurant's we have been too. We have always been happy with the main course entrees we have ordered as well. I am making a reservation tonight for a family celebration for my mother's 90th birthday celebration and everyone is happy we are going there.

Very disappointing experience, especially being from Greenville, SC where the California Dreaming there is the best. My boyfriend and I traveled 45 min ti dine at the restaurant, and the service was not good, the salad dressing was watered down, my baked potato was hard, and the barbecue chicken was tiny compared to what I was use to in SC. I'm extremely disappointed because I begged my boyfriend to make the drive there, and assured him it would be worth the drive. Oh and forgot about. The tea; it was horrible, we had to add packets of sweet n low just to make it tolerable. In closing I would like to say I will never visit or recommend this restaurant again

The place has a nice atmosphere. bathroom sinks and faucets are beautiful. Food probably mediocre. It's an over priced applebee's. Everything was a bit too sweet for my taste.
The server was dressed as if I should expect exceptional service, but its about the same service you would get at a local steak and shake, maybe a little less.

Overall, the place looks fancy so if you've exhausted all options for dining, stop by, but it's nothing special. I had the ribs and I think the baby backs you get a chili's is probably better. The nachos are better at Friday's. Definitely not the best value for your money, but you pay for all their overage so if you consider that then I guess its alright.

Place looked fancy, but not a whole lot of substance.

Pros: the place itself is a nice place even have the kohlers sink

Cons: probably why the price is the way it is

While visiting the restaurant over the weekend with my friends (enjoying the amazing $1.95 drinks) & I noticed they have an awesome Valentine's Special for two for only $45! I don't remember exactly what it includes, but it comes with a starter, entrees for two and a big dessert to share. It's an awesome deal, I've looked into other places, and this seems to be the best. I will definitely be there!

Everytime I have come to California Dreaming in Duluth, I recieve the best and most prompt service. I always try something new (or a new salad, to be exact) and last time it was the Broiled Salmon Salad. Can you say amazing?! I asked for my Salmon to be cooked a little rare, and it came out perfectly atop of my lovely salad. It was amazing, and of course the croissant made it perfect. I can't wait to return!

Cons: only one croissant per salad! why not 5?

My wife and I had a wonderful time, she enjoyed her California Dreaming salad and I loved my Prime Rib! It was cooked perfectly, and we had excellent service from a friendly server named Spencer. Will be returning soon!

Had ordered the fish of the day with some kind of chipolte topping and it was fabulous! I ordered it with only broccoli as my side because it was my favorite. How odd that someone wrote a review about broccoli! That person must have gone to a different restaurant because our food was AWESOME! It was so different and the place was really happening. There were alot of people and it wasn't even a weekend night. It was just a Tuesday and it was busy! Definitely plan on becoming a regular!!

My Husband and I came on a busy Saturday night. Even though it look packed, the Hosts were polite and assured us a short waiting time. Shortly after we got our pager, it buzzed anyway. They were all capable of describing some food we had questions about and helped us a lot. Once we were sat our server was nice and got our food our swiftly. Everything was great, we will definitely be returning!

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!

There was a WORM on my broccoli.

The staff offered no apology just an excuse. Is there any excuse for a WORM on your food?

This restaurant may want to check the food preparation procedures.

Other people reviewed this place and said the ribs were dry and not good. I think the ribs are great. Put the extra sauce they give you on them if you think they are dry. If you like fall off the bones ribs I think you'll like them. I love'em. Also the house salad is great with the honey dripped crousant rolls on top. My standard fare is the ribs, the house salad and a loaded baked potato. Delicious! And the bar is great too. I usually get a premium margarita with Patron etc. It is loud, but it is fun too.

Kennesaw, GA - location

We (2 of us) went on a Fri. evening around 7:30 to 8:00pm, it was busy.

The decor is nice and pleasant. It was loud.

The hostesses about 10 were huddeling at the hostess station, gave us a pager and said 40 min. We were seated after a couple who came 5 min. after us and before a few couples who were waiting when we arrived. We asked about it - they said they made a mistake and we were next.

The food is high in price for what you get compared to similar resturants in the area.

House salads are good. We both had baby back ribs - they were taste but dry and over cooked. Not alot of meat on the ribs.

The service was good and timely.

Was not overly impressed by our first visit.

I've never had a bad menu choice at this restaurant. I go there with my girlfriends several times a year, bypassing many other restaurants on the way. For me, personally, I'm working my way through the extensive martini list. Several months ago they dropped the long list from their menu, but a few of the servers still have it, so make sure you ask for it if you are an adventurous martini drinker.

I went on a recommendation of a friend and even though the architecture was impressive, the food was horrible. The place was huge and easy to get to but that was the best thing about the experience. I ordered the chicken tenders and french fries and couldn't eat either one of them. They were very greasy and tasted like they had been fried in old oil. My friend got barbecue chicken and it was burnt.

I was hoping this was a place my co-workers and I could go for lunch but unfortunately I won't be recommending this one to anyone I know given my first experience.

i ordered the ribs, don't! it was dry, perhaps precooked the night before, and charred black along one side. My wife ordered the santa fe salad, the lettuce was wilted and the dish lacked flavor overall. On the good side, the server was attentive and the atmosphere was excellent. If quality of food is important, don't go....

Before going to the Gwinnett Civic Center we decided to go to California Dreaming for dinner. My husband had steak and I had salad...both were fantastic. Our waitress was very helpful in menu selections and got us out with plenty of time to spare. Interior is beautiful.
