The food was really tasty!

We were staying at the fairplex but usually don't dine at the same place all the time - but this place was so good we dined there three nights!

I usually have breakfast here when I stay at the hotel each Thanksgiving. The food is fine, whether you order off the menu or opt for the buffet. The real strength of the restaurant is the staff and atmosphere.

The service was great and the dining room is cozy. There is a garden on the property and they use the produce in their menu which is unique. The menu selections and the overall food is what you expect from a hotel though. It's expensive and not that great. They have a captive audience since there isn't much near the... More

Even though this is in Pomona, this is a good place to eat. The food is well prepared and tastes great. Pricey, but good.

We visited this location again while attending the L.A. county fair. The buffet choices were better than average places, however you had to get there before the 3/4 mark of the time period to get fresh food. The bagels were stale. The service friendly. Dinner service was extremely slow and the tables dusty and floors often unswept. In short it... More

We have been staying at the Sheraton for years for an event that often times leaves us very little time to eat so we just grab something at the on site restaurant. I do like the fact that they source local food however it seemed to have limited their menu. They help was slow and the food was mediocre at... More

The service here is exceptional. Our waiter who's name was Jose(Not sure on the last name) went above and beyond making us feel Welcome. The menu has a wide variety although we just stopped for breakfast. I look forward to getting another chance to try their dinner menu.

We had three very good appetizers: crab cakes, calamari, and guacamole with tortilla chips. Our fish dishes were nicely prepared and the chocolate lava cake yummy. Service was excellent.

We had dinner and breakfast here several times. The breakfast buffet during the week is basic, I wasn't impressed. I found their menu items that we could order to be much better. The omelet I ordered was excellent. Dinner was good to very good depending upon the order. Service was excellent although we had a large party so that might... More
