    We have been here many times with great service. We decided to bring family in from out of town to experience it and it was shocking and disappointing. The food was great - no complaints. However, I’ve never sat on the patio in the times I’ve come (5-6 times) and it was very warm yesterday. We didn’t request the patio but it would be been fine if they could keep it cool. It was not cool and we had a few in long sleeves in preparation for a cooler inside space. The windows were open, but there were not screens and the gnats were getting into our food and drinks. We also waited 20 minutes for anyone to greet us once we were seated. I’ve never had to wait like that at this restaurant. I actually had to go back up to the front host/hostess area to let them know that we hadn’t seen anyone come to our table after being seated for 20 minutes. A waiter came shortly after that. I was so unimpressed with the service. The food and drinks are good but are very expensive. When I spend that kind of money, I expect the full service to match. I would also recommend getting screens for the patio if windows are going to be open. I would also suggest using those cool machines on the patios when temperatures hit the mid 80s. It was too warm for about half of our group. I do not normally wait 20 minutes for someone to greet us and get a drink order. I’m not sure we will be back for awhile. There are too many other restaurants with amazing service when you are spending $15-$20 for a drink and $40 for an entree.

    We went to Cake Bake for my daughter's 15th birthday - first time visiting. We had reservations, but weren't seated for approximately 15 minutes after we arrived, despite the venue being obviously slow (only about 1/2 the tables were seated). We immediately explained to the server that we had been out shopping and were starving. We ordered drinks, which took approximately 10 minutes to arrive (way tooo long). We immediately ordered food, when he returned with our drinks. The food took almost 45 minutes to arrive (simple order of 2 burgers and 1 angel hair pasta). It then took another 25 minutes to get the cake we ordered after finishing our meal. It was almost as if they were intentionally slow. After all the frustration of the slow service, and marginal food, we were given our more than $200 bill - for dinner for 3! Would not recommend.

    We went for a birthday celebration and we had a great time. The food was delicious and the service was great. I love the atmosphere as I always feel like I am at Disney World. Will be back.
