Pond House Cafe
Mostly goodThe food was good except for an untoastedvEnglish Muffin. Our waitress was skittle too spacey .5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a leisurely lunch!Visited with my family for a pre-Mother's Day celebration at Pond House this weekend and had a good experience overall.
The menu is super diverse, lots of colorful Asian and Southwestern-inspired dishes so everyone was able to find something they liked. Terrific ambiance and the patio is stunning on a sunny day.
Our servers were friendly but a little bit more lax than we would've liked. We had to request straws, water and refills on drinks several times, and it took a while for us to receive both our appetizers and our entrees.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful, as always.we always enjoy the PH, especially being able to bring wine for a $5 corkage. Food is very good as well and a walk in the park before or after is fun.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service, OK FoodThis was our second visit to the Pond House Cafe. Once again, the service was excellent. The food, though, was not as good as our first visit. One person in our party ordered the pork. The meat was cooked properly (not overdone), but there was so much demi glace, it was overpowering. The Brussels sprouts were also underdone and hard. I had the steak, which was OK, but I wouldn't order it again. I still love PHC and will go back -- probably to try brunch next time.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food in excellentVery good food in excellent setting in quiet park by the pond.

My sister and I shared the pear salad and my favorite - the turkey sandwich - and were pleased with each. The service was great as was the environment. My sister is a gourmet cook and she was impressed! Loved the ipad menus and the Jackie O print which added to the total experience. The Pond House continues to be my favorite spot for dining with friends and family.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood menu. Our dinner wasGood menu. Our dinner was very good and served promptly.

Love our meals everytime3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food. goodI never write these reviews but The Pound House has fed my family for 8 years and for greater than three quarters the Sundays each year. We moved here from Manhattan and our family longed for our favorite brunch haunts. Consistently high quality, well prepared and presented food. New and innovative menu additions and old favorites adorn their android tablet menus. Service is responsive and management (Kim) engaged, friendly and very present. A pleasure to dine al fresco overlooking pond or inside the contemporary restaurant. The Pond House receives my highest recommendation.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was a little....gruff?The staff was a little....gruff? Friendly but not TOO friendly. Kind of awkward. But other than that everything was beautiful - I'd definitely go back. The grounds are lovely and I bet in the Spring/Summer they're simply gorgeous.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat I didn't sayEverything was delicious except the dry pheasant. The service was excellent--all the other orders were perfect--duck, seafood stew, appetizers and salads. I was so excited to see pheasant on the menu that when I tasted it and realized how dry it was, I didn't want to admit to myself how disappointing the entree was! So I said nothing!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
