    The service was great, the bar tender was especially attentive and took care to make the drinks exactly how we like them. I'm not impressed with the food. I've had better steaks at out back for half the price. I had a reservation and still waited 45 minutes to be sat (that's how I met the bartender) the food was slow to come out. I have a feeling it had to do with the stress on the kitchen staff because of the wedding reception in the banquet room. Over all it was an experience, not a place I would go to again any time soon but I'm still glad we went.

    My husband and I went here for an upscale date night and we will definitely be back. The food was fantastic. I had the scallops and my husband had the filet. Salad bar was clean and well stocked. Soup was great for all you can eat. We arrived a bit late for our reservation but that worked out great because we were able to have a few laughs with the bartender before being seated. It was a very busy night and the hostesses were a bit tense. But other than that it was a wonderful dining experience. Also, I can't forget to mention our waitress who was so kind and helpful regarding my husbands lactose intolerance.

    We have been fortunate enough to have experienced PVMC since it opened. It has been amazingly consistent on all fronts and this can be most welcomed when you're back in the area (after moving away). The steaks (filet and rib eye) were well prepared as ordered. The backed potato was warm but not hot and this affected the overall flavor. Their salad bar comes with an entrée and it was wonderful with a good selection of fresh produce and dressings. Wonderful setting overlooking the Pomona Valley with a great view. Nice suburban view when you come from the "big city." Over the years when we are back in the area we have returned to PVMC and never been disappointed with this old wonderful delightful friend!

    My girlfriend wanted steak for her Birthday. We have been to a lot of steak places and this time I decided to go with something with a view. I found this place on yelp and it was nice. We arrive late to our reservation. So we waited like 5 min but we didn't mind because we had drinks at the bar. After we got called in. They sat us by the window just like I reserved it. They have an open bar for salad and soup. Yes unlimited delicious soup! Our steaks were so good I wanted to place a order to go. I recommend this place to anyone that ones to have a romantic night. Ones you done get you're self's to the hot-tubs resort at the puddingstone creek, is just up the hill. Is a good way to finish the night! Did I mention unlimited delicious soup!

    You may not expect the scenic view at Pomona, but this place is up on a hill. The place resembles or was a mining field, and interior is little dark but great. Food was great with steak. They got unlimited salad and soup, which was huge plus. We ordered coconut shrimp as well, which was a bit dried after frying. Wine list is a bit weak, but you may like it as the selections were with affordable pricing and reasonably good taste.

    We recently enjoyed a lovely brunch at the Pomona Valley Mining Company. Service was excellent. There was a good variety of food including made-to-order omelettes, waffles, prime rib,pasta bar, ribs, enchiladas, salads, crab legs and of course a delicious array of desserts. We ran out of room to eat all the good choices.

  • Poor Salad Bar
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I had heard that this restaurant was noted for its salad bar. Not this night. Everything was out and not being refilled. The clam chowder was probably the worst I have ever had. The prime rib was good but not great. Fun for a one time visit to theme restaurant with view but not a place I would go for great food on a regular basis.

    We celebrated our 15 wedding anniversary last Saturday night here. We were disappointed when our food arrived and we what we thought we ordered was not up to par. We ordered a rice pilaf each and what we got was microwaved rice with corn and peas ?? We did not complain however and just rolled with it. At 7 pm, 1 hour after we were seated we ordered desert. At 7:20 I asked me husband to inquire about it. When he asked Kathy she said it takes a while to make, so my husband said if it is not made already just cancel it, we need to pick up our daughter. She said I will bag it for you, we said no, it is ice cream, please don't ?! She then came back to tell us the order was not processed. We just paid and left.

    We had a reservation, the table wasn't ready. The table was set for the wrong number of people. We wanted to separate tables, they said they couldn't do that so we had to make two separate reservations. Then when we arrived they said we couldn't have two checks, one for each table?!? What?? You made us make two separate reservations, but now each table can't have their own check??? They relented on this one, but still it was awkward. Food was okay, nothing spectacular.

Would have been more of a wait but luckily another lady covered the hostess position and she very rapidly assisted me. Food and scenic view plus the server, were great.

    Service was good at the beginning, but slowed down after we received our food. I had to wait a while for my iced tea to be refilled, and we didn't see our waitress until the end of our meal. My guest and I ordered prime rib. It was way over cooked and tough. We didn't see the waitress to complain, plus we had plans after and didn't have time to request another plate. We ordered the baked potato with "the works" and it was a large baked potato and came with lots of butter, sour cream, cheese and bacon.

We enjoy a glass of wine at dinner but we are not drinkers. I was put of that we had to wait for only the reason of greedy management.

    Food was great and service was exceptional. The only problem, which wasn't my problem , was a new guest sat down and was obnoxiously loud. The guest began to intrude on another table without the staff asking her to reduce her antics to a reasonable level. It became entertainment for me since I was about to leave but if I had stayed any longer I would have made a comment to the staff or the woman being obnoxious.

    Very impressive building and delicious food! I had the Ribeye, the special for the night. Cooked very well. We also the artichoke dip as an appetizer. Again very good food. Too much food in fact. I did appreciate the attention our server paid and timed when our food would arrive. I hate having to rush through my appetizer or salad to get to my main course. Thanks for a good night.

    A sad anniversary my husband ate while I waited for food as mine was not cooked. The mashed potatoes were not fluffy they work completely watered-down. the waitress never checked on us & ignored us. It was supposed to be a special night. Never had any special treatment or any service. We went last year and loved it. The food was fat grizzly & undercooked;( the potatoes were watered-down and my husband paid extra for a baked potato. The fillet he ordered was tender as it should be. also undercooked from what he ordered, but had no flavor, very bland.

    I love the location on the hill. We went to PVMC on a Sunday night, and it was not very crowded. The service was good but could have been better. We were shown to a table but preferred a booth, so the host showed us to a booth. He did not give us menus. When the waitress showed up later, she noticed that we had no menus. I had to request a child's menu also, as my granddaughter was with us. The food was good, the salad bar and soup bar was nice. We loved the cheese bread. I was not fond of the mashed potatoes, but the prime rib was good. They brought our five year old an ice cream sundae for dessert, which was a nice touch. All in all, a pleasant experience.

Then we had a romantic dinner and Brandee our waitress recommended the filet Mignon topped with mushrooms. So delicious. The view is amazing and the cheese bread and salad bar was so filling, try to hold back there cause portions are huge! Cool spot and a totally neat staple of this area
