Respond to Review of The Dream Cafe - Uptown
by Arlington Mom
Review: We didn't have a babysitter for Valentine's so we took our toddler (who will hardly sit at a table-- terrible twos) to Dream Cafe. It was a great compromise-- fine dining and lovely atmosphere for us, and a play area full of children for him. I was prepared, having read some other reviews, for the service to be slow or inattentive-- not so! It was quick, correct, and gracious. When we decided to eat inside, rather than on the patio, the server led us to a corner booth with a window, which was the perfect choice for us. (Quiet and easy to contain/entertain the little one.) He either had ESP or remarkable empathy. Or kids! Another reviewer commented that the restaurant seemed noisy, dirty, "Mommy Day," etc. Well obviously my orientation is different-- I was happy there were other children there. It was busy but not unpleasantly noisy.(although I am getting crankier in my old age about loud music in restaurants, Dream's was par for the course.) I found it spotlessly clean.
