Diner Reviews
  • "The food was prepared well and interesting. Great service. We enjoyed the meal and would definitely come back"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Delicious food, service to plate took a bit long but reasonable since it was a large group. Servers do need.to know who ordered what, and know which wine to bring: if asked to bring bottle for whole table not to bring a single serving one. Everyone was knowledgeable, and food delicious. thank you"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Great experience. Fine dining and a fixed price for 3 items. The Osso Bucco and Steak and Vegetarian Lasagne were all delicious as was the soup. The desserts were are very yummy and the setting was lovely with a great view. Service could not have been better. Only complaint is there was no choice of a green salad to begin the meal."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Everything was great! The food was splendid and a delight to the taste buds. The ambiance accommodates a romantic date for two, a night out with friends, and time with family - it is great. Eleven out of ten, would return the next quarter and spend all my meal points. It is worth it! Keep it up guys!"

  • "I had an excellent time. The service was very good. The food was delicious. We had the RKR Burger and the mushroom ravioli. We shared the house salad and the torte w/pistachios. All the food had a unique flavor that made it all very tasty. I can't wait to come and try the dinners. The view was very nice during the day, can't wait to see it at night."

  • "Excellent food - pricey - but really, worth it. The Prix Fix meal offered several options - for course I, II and III. There was an amazing wine list; however, as I would be the only one enjoying a glass or so, I opted for a single glass of wine. This would be a really nice place for a party. A lovely bottle of wine could be shared...I took my son there to celebrate his birthday - he is a student at Cal Poly Pomona; we both had the same thing, coincidentally. I don't remember the name of the first dish - it was an Italian themed course of study for the students; kind of a caprese salad but with mini bell peppers - and giant capers. (surprise!) - The entrée we chose was Shrimp Scampi with fresh made vege pasta - EXCELLENT. Dessert too"

  • "I was so impressed with the students' hospitality, efficient group coordination and interaction, and fast food service. They did a wonderful job and made our dining experience memorable."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I enjoyed lunch immensely. Everyone was friendly. Dylan, our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. My friends and I were very happy with the service. I drink a lot of water when I eat, so my glass stayed on the empty side, but otherwise everything was great!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Great dining experience. Student run restaurant - it is nice to contribute to their learning experience."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "This is a great dining experience. Remember that while there is an executive teaching chef, the students are doing the prep, serving, managing, etc. The first day of any week of service can be a bit dicey as it is like opening a restaurant for the students. Some have never had any experience and some are quite confident. It's a great view of the valley and the food is always better than average."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Great spot to try and give the students a chance to Learn. Good food that is all homemade with great ingredients. It is a classroom so be warned that service is a little different than that of a regular restaurant. They are being graded and a little nervous. But overall it is a fabulous restaurant that I would recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Had a wonderful lunch at the Kellogg Ranch. The student run restaurant is a a fun experience. You can watch them cook in the kitchen and take over different aspects of serving. The food is delicious and the desserts are excellent. Loved the ice cream sampler. The Taitian Vanilla and dark chocolate ice cream were my favorite"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Management provided excellent service, food was outstanding, ambience quite scenic. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The RKR has lovely ambience, visually stunning food and dessert preparations, a gorgeous view from any seat, a wine list that should please even the discerning palate and friendly staff and management who work to make your dining experience a lasting memory, one where you'll be eage to return."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Food was good, good overall experience. Two observations: our server was knowledgeable and very professional, sauce in the raviolis was dense and too thick, left with a feeling of heaviness, great taste but heavy."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch does a consistently above-average job. The food is very good and the service is attentive; it is difficult to imagine that these are restaurant management course college students."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "We went during the last week of their service, which is "buffet week." Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend it highly. I haven't been to this establishment for regular menu service though, so can only comment on their buffet style service. The food was wonderful, and I will go again."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "The food as always was excellent. The service and presentation needed a little work."
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "Students work various positions in the restaurant industry and earn their grades this way. We have attended the quarterly buffet for quite awhile now and appreciate the work these students perform."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "A wonderful meal, and an even better experience since this is a college run facility and students are preparing the mean, and serving the meal. I love seeing young energetic passionate people that get the opportunity to pursue a dream, compared to the vast majority of us that must simply work whatever job we must to survive."
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "I took my mom there for lunch and she really enjoyed herself. The food was nice and hot. We really enjoyed it. Dessert is only ok. It's good, but nothing special. We ordered wine and it was good as well. The server was kind of worried we didn't like the wine because we barely drank any, but that's just because we are not very strong with alcohol--otherwise very good. Be compassionate, the staff are students, so they are still learning--they may not have any experience. I know this because we just went to support my friend who is a student there. Our servers were real nervous--just a heads up and don't take it personally if you can, heheh. Go there for the food and enjoy the person/people you are going out with and you will have a good time."

  • "everything was very good. if the price is little lower, this will be perfect.=:)"
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "At Cal Poly Pomona the Polytechnic denotes a learning-by-doing model of education. The Collins College of Hospitality operates a full-service restaurant as a course where the students are managers, waitstaff and cooks-rotating each quarter. The kitchen has an educator/chef who ensures quality and taste. You can review your experience after your meal with a questionnaire. The small menu is thoughtfully ocmposed, with an emphasis on fresh, light regional cuisine and suggested wine and beer pairings. Delicious lunches and dinners Wed-Fri with an unbeatable view and eager service makes for a memorable meal."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "The food was excellent; the service was good, very professional, very accomplished, and very skilled. But I would recommend that you clean and look at your menus at least once a week because I found a band aid stuck to my menu on the inside."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "I enjoyed the entire dining experience. The wait staff was extremely polite and on-task. The food was yummy and the portions were quite generous. The restaurant was very clean and orderly. It was nice that the cooking area had giant window to observe the chefs-in-training. I thought it was fantastic, especially for a student-run facility. Thanks."
    Dined on 10/29/2013
  • "We love this restaurant and recommend it highly. The food is top notch at very reasonable prices and the student staff friendly and professional. And the view is great, too."
