The service was great, especially for a party of 13. Their bread is fresh and they have a great selection of wine. The portions, in my opinion, were perfectly sized. I wasn’t even finished eating my salad (which came with my entree) when my plate came out. I can’t remember the steak I got but it was juicy and really flavorful. There were a lot of people dining in when our family went. The setting was very pretty and you could never tell that the old building used to be an old railroad warehouse. Unique, indeed. – YelpBernicemina M., San Diego, CA
I was visiting my sister and her family in Columbia and they took me to California Dreaming the first night I was in town and we ended up going back two more times during that week! What a cool building and the staff are all very friendly. My sister always gets the California Dreaming salad, but I loved the shrimp San Francisco! I wish I could take the honey butter croissants back to Ohio with me! – CitysearchCindy, Carter, OH
