"We hosted a 90th birthday party for our mother. Not only did they have her FAVORITE meal (bacon & eggs & pancakes) but many of the staff stopped by to wish her a happy birthday. The restaurant is lovely venue and worth the drive of more than 90 minutes. Well done, Cedar Creek!"

"We've been to this restaurant several times as the food is very good but when the patio is crowded be aware that the noise level can be unsettling. We were there on a Friday for lunch and the patio was full of groups talking very loudly. Add the street noise and you have the makings of a disappointing experience."

"Cedar Creek was a favorite restaurant for years but very disappointed this trip. Without notice they added a $5 charge for house salad substitution instead of caeasr salad, and when asked to remove it since they didn't tell us of the changed policy, they refused. While the Ahi sandwhich has gone from $15 to $19 maybe a reasonable increase, with the house salad it is $22. Although the food and service are good, it is disappointing that they won't tell long time customers of their additional charges or offer to remove them since not disclosed. We will not dine there as often in the future since we had a poor experience this time."

"We use to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions at Cedar Creek which was one of our favorite restaurants. Quality seems to be reduced as prices continue to increase. Our favorite was Ahi sandwhich with house salad (was served at both San Juan Capistrano and Laguna Hills locations), but it went from $15 and now is $22 (or a bit less if you have Caesar salad). Portion size is smaller than before while the price is higher. With so many quality restaurants in the area, we won't go to Cedar Creek as often anymore. The staff used to be friendly and helpful while now they don't seem to care if customers are satisfied. Disappointed!"

"The steamed artichoke was over cooked,mushy, and cold in the middle.
I Ordered the roasted vegetable platter for dinner which I have enjoyed in the past. But the veggies weren't roasted they were steamed instead. And very plain.
This was our wedding Anniversary dinner that I looked forward to all week. And I left very unhappy. Also it was very loud and we had a hard time hearing each other talk.

"Dinner for 2 -- Friday night at 7:45pm:
Friendly hostess who seated us immediately and found us the best available table -- superb job. Excellent table server whose accent made him nearly unintelligible at times when the ambient noise level was high. Noise level was initially high but died way down by 8:30 pm. Restaurant interior and table layout were inviting and well-spaced, respectively. Menu was superb with a plethora of wonderful dishes and wines. However, the menu itself was oddly arranged and initially confusing -- one side listing entrées and wines, and the other listing appetizers and (more) wines. Our drinks and food were each served promptly. Our entrées (prime rib and ahi tuna) were superb with hearty, well-sized portions. Finally, the check was handled promptly at our meal's end. Great place. Great food. We'll definitely be back soon."

"This restaurant has been a family favorite for years. Each holiday they decorate beautifully. There is our door dining often with easy music playing for us.
The food is great. We love the fried artichoke hearts and the artichokes themselves
The filet, meatloaf, scampi and the house salads are our favorites. Giovanni and Mike in the bar make an excellent lemon drop martini and our kids and grand-kids are always treated special. The have a kids menus which is good as well.

"Food was pretty good, BUT the chefs did NOT season the food even moderately leaving things pretty tasteless. A steak had a nice sauce but had no salt. Fish in fish and chips was totally bland. The small ceasar salad that came with the entrees was small, poor and more what you may expect in a budget eatery. However, the planked salmon was excellent so were the jumbo shrimp (and the vegetables were good).
Also on arriving at our table 5 of the 9 chairs were fold up basic seats but on unoccupied tables around us there were nice padded seats... when we asked the server about this she simply said please go ahead and swap them yourselves. This poor service is NO ACCEPTABLE at this price point or maybe any price-point... the staff should have given us decent chairs or at least moved the chairs for us... its not the customers job!.
Overall the meal was decent, service was average to poor and the evening was saved by the view of the mission through the large picture window.
We will go back, but maybe not soon.
The restaurant should try harder at customer service and make sure that their (decent) chefs know how to properly season the food they are preparing."

"As usual the Ahi burger quality was excellent, but considering the price increase and smaller portion, salad was tiny, I was disappointed."
