The bartender grossed me out!

Thought the food was a bit pricy. Happy Hour was a better deal. I liked the ambiance. Quiet and nice. I got the nachos, which were okay. The bartender SPIT in the sink right in front of me. Couldn't he have gone into the bathroom?

We were pleasantly surprised to eat at this hotel restaurant at the Sheraton Fairplex. Offering a modern interior decor and a very pleasant tree canopied outdoor patio, this restaurant benefits from its own 5-acre farm onsite from which the greens and vegetables are sourced. With a full bar and reasonable wine list, the short but broad-enough menu satisfied. Pomona lacks... More

I love that we have a farm to table restaurant close to home. Both times I've been here, I have experienced excellent food, service, seating, and the feeling that I will be returning.

Food was good but the service was a bit lacking. One of our guest couldn't eat their dinner b/c the sever did not advise her that it would be heavily peppered.... We had to ask to change it out for something else, we weren't given an offer to exchange it..

The food is very good and the staff is friendly and helpful. In the bar the service can be really slow and they gave me the wrong beer once, but the resturant is fabulous.

After spending the day in 100 degree heat at the Los Angeles county fair we wanted something not heavy. Three of us ordered the Cob Salad and the odd one out went with the Turkey Club. Simply said the food was really good and everyone was pleased. The portions are generous and the service was attentive. This was our second... More

Had a steak with grilled veggies, and a glass of California wine - absolutely delicious. The service was excellent, staff knowledgeable, and atmosphere perfect.

Nice setting but overpriced for the food recieved. Very limited options. The staff was way to "Overly friendly" and seemed very fake!
