    Fun location & great views. Salad bar was fresh & good, as well as my husband’s steak- cooked just right. They ran out of the ‘catch of the day’ & accidentally charged us for that entree, but overall decent food but too expensive for the quality.

    The waitress treated the other guests nicely, but not to us. (She introduced herself to other table guests, but we didn't know her name). Even though we just sat and ate for not more than one hour, she asked us a couple of times, need boxes? My kid ordered kid meal rib (come with fries), and we asked if could switch fries to mac&cheese. The waitress said yes, and then we got the rib and mac and cheese. The (without fries)but when we were ready to pay, the bill charged us the extra mac&cheese, when we asked her, she said she didn't say can switched, so charged it. When I said, “You did say yes “, then she went to her manager, we didn't know what she said to her manager, and the manager looked mad. At last, they removed the extra mac&cheese charge, but we already felt uncomfortable.

    First time for myself, been a while for my spouse. We got a window seat and it was beautiful. The lighting is dim but goes with the overall feel. The food was delicious and the drink as well. We had shrimp scampi, salmon, lobster. The lobster had so much meat on it. I got a banana hammock for a drink, im not big on sweet but it was yummy a combination of sweet but can taste the alcohol. Everyone gets salad, soup, bread. The clam chowder was yummy and the bread they serve made a great combination. Service was wonderful. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Can not wait to come back and celebrate my birthday.

    This was our first visit to the restaurant even though we have lived in the area for 20 plus years. I hate that we hadn't gone sooner because this place is great! With the rise in cost for eating out this place definitely is worth the prices because they we very reasonably for a great meal! I got the filet mignon and shrimp scampi and I loved it! we took our 6 year old with us and she loved her little chicken tender meal as well! Its a great place with a great view! Strongly recommend!

    Restaurant was under staffed and over booked. Even with a reservation the waiting time was a bit long. Our table was wobbly we asked to move and were told we were going to have to wait more time. The food was over cooked , the staff looked very stress

    Food was not as good as it would’ve been on a regular night . We Ordered a steak and it was under cooked . They took it back to make it “well done“ ended up coming back charred. With the price being a little higher than normal I would expected for the food to be top of the line.

    They sat us next to two huge tables. All women bridal showers. We couldn’t even hear each other speak. Food was great, service & servers were very nice. My only issue was when we arrived, they told us to wait in the bar area to be seated. We waited 15-20 minutes & others were being seated. I had to go ask what the hold up was, then we were seated at a very long huge table too big for our party of 11.

    Valet parker asked in a guarded tone if we had a reservation, not very welcoming. Hostess was not friendly, not welcoming at all. It's the small details PVM lacks. We have not planned on going there again soon. Better service within a few miles is available. Not interested in going to Pomona very often except for what we thought was a nice place to eat.

    Food was really good. The only problem I had was the reservation. We had a reservation booked for 6pm and arrived early, around 5:45. We did not get seated until almost 6:30pm and there had been several parties that arrived after us get seated. So that was really frustrating, but the food was very good.

    We live Mission Viejo and love the food and try to get up here when we can. The waitress was amazing and food great. We got there around 5:15 pm and what I found puzzling was two of the woman’s restrooms stalls had one roll empty and the others one with barely any TP. Wouldn’t you think at the beginning of a busy night you would have the bathroom ready. Then before I left the last stall the handicapped stall was completely out! Mind blowing

    While the vista provided by this location was nothing short of breathtaking, the culinary offerings, though enjoyable, were not entirely justified by the price tag. The ambiance and customer service left a little more to be desired than I would've liked. Admittedly, we felt somewhat overdressed, as the patrons around us seemed more suited to a casual dining chain like Applebee's. The restaurant's website had given us the impression of a refined dining experience, a sentiment that the decor echoed. However, this image was incongruous with the actual clienteles' demeanor. Our dining experience was marred by boisterous neighbors who felt the need to share their personal matters (ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to relationship issues) at a volume that was hard to ignore. Furthermore, the family seated ahead of us had a child who seemed to be in dire need of an exorcism, judging by the piercing screams. Our waitress, unfortunately, did little to improve the situation. She avoided eye contact and appeared ill at ease in her role, only making an appearance to check on us once we had finished our meal. The staff seemed to project an air more akin to employees at a hometown buffet, which was a stark contrast to the upscale ambiance the restaurant was attempting to portray. Despite these issues, I believe this place has the potential to be a gem, provided some necessary changes are made. With a few adjustments, it could attract a more fitting clientele and truly reflect the elegance of its location.

    A few of the foods served on the Sunday Brunch Buffet were very good (the prime rib, omelettes, and ribs) but the majority of the dishes were just mediocre. For the price, we were not impressed. In addition, the general care of the restaurant was run down. The varnish on our table was peeling and needed to be refurbished.
