Our group had a variety of dishes. The vegetarian meal was great. Steamed whole artichoke, big baked potato with various topings & steamed vegi, Salmon was good, but mashed potatoes were only fair. The prime rib was excellent huge, tender & cooked to perfection. All meals included trips to the large salad/soup bar & very cheesy cheese bread.
Lovely view of the valley, noise level was medium. The stairs to get down to restaurant are steep & no elevator, but they must have handicap access check if you need it. Separate bar area. Narrow steep road up to restaurant that's on the side of a hill.

Great food and great service. We were seated promptly and our server was on top of things from the beginning.

The only improvement is to expand the restroom facilities, from only one to one on each level.

PVMC is a great venue for dinner and those special occasions when you want something above and beyond the normal restaurant. With commanding views of the valley below, it is a great spot for a romantic dinner with your significant other or large gatherings. They have a great salad bar and the soups have been uniformly delicious over the many years we have been going there. The wait staff is attentive without being intrusive.

From seafood and salmon to steaks I’ve loved every meal I’ve eaten there over the years. Do make reservations and it is especially busy during prom season.

Our waitress was amazing but it took forever to get our food. They did not come check on us but once for drinks. Took forever to get desert and even longer to get the check. It’s wasn’t busy in the regular dining area so not sure what the problem was but for the cost of the meals it was not worth it. We had been years ago and did not experience that. More than likely will not go back.

Pomona Valley Mining Company was a perfect place for dinner prior to visiting Pumpkin Nights. The three of us arrived early on a Thursday evening for 5:45 p.m. reservations. We were seated immediately at a table with a perfect view overlooking the Valley. Our server was attentive, efficient and patient.
This was our first visit. Our dinner choices were shrimp scampi and sea scallops, “Ruby Red” rainbow trout, and sautéed salmon fillet. All were exceptional and were accompanied by garlic mashed potato. The salmon, ordered medium rare, was cooked to perfection. Since we had extra time, we enjoyed the view as the sun set and then ordered dessert. Oh, my goodness! We were warned in advance by our server as to the size of the desserts. We ordered three desserts anyway and ended up sharing the largest, the yummy Miner’s Mud Pie, and ended up taking the Bourbon Bread Pudding and Original Cheese Cake with Strawberry topping to share later. A perfect dinner out. We will do it again!

Great venue for brunch. Plenty of choices and room for large gatherings. Used the website to make reservation for 16, smooth sailing with no-hiccups. Attentive servers and staff. Great view of Pomona Valley with easy access from I-10.

Came for brunch as a party of 10 with family. Food and service was excellent, a lot of great and delicious food choices plus omelette made to order at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend this venue for any special celebration or just to have a great experience. Our server missy was very attentive and took very good care of us. The only down side was the difficulty in choosing what to eat from so some many yummy choices. Will be back for more. Love this place !! And the views are awesome.

I brought my mom here for Sunday brunch for her birthday. It was her first time here & my first time back in 2 years. I noticed there was a $2 increase from $30 to $32. Which wouldn’t be a big deal if the food improved or even stayed the same but not the case. Food is not quality anymore. My mom liked the atmosphere but had the same concerns I did regarding the food. Fortunately, our servers were great & we had a great view at the window. I don’t think I’ll be coming back though. I’d rather pay a little more for better food. Unfortunate, because this place used to be great.

We went to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. The table with view was nice. The food and service is good. It would of been nice if they would have recognized our anniversary since it was on the reservation.
Only negative is that even if you have a reservation, you are asked to wait in the bar, and on this night there wasn't enough seating in the bar!

The food was great but took very long. Our server did not bring us the stuff we requested. Server didn't even bring us the bread and kids lemonade that we requested. We had to ask her to bring our kids Sundays ice cream upon request after we got our bill. We would not go back because of the service we got on our anniversary night. Not very happy at all.

Brunch was great here but refills on drinks were a little slow. Didn't mind it too much it was still a great experience. Busser for sure dropped the ball and only saw him come by once to clear our plates. Our whole table had dirty dishes all over the place.

The service was poor, the waitress would hand us drinks to pass down the table when she was very capable of walking the drink to the person. She also disappeared for awhile and left us hanging so we served our own water. We ordered two dessert to share amongst 7 of us and she came out with spoons and dessert plates but only gave us the spoons. So we saw some stacked plates on a table and grabbed our own since she disappeared. The steak i ordered was over salted. The only good thing i had was the salad bar and soup. I don’t think i will be back. With those prices i expected better service. Very disappointed

The waitress took forever to come back. A few times my party ran out of drinks. We come for events and this time it was for my birthday and most of my party did not enjoy it. The prime rib was more salty than preferred but was told all the meat was already seasoned. My moms original prime rib had less fat but was so salty you can taste it before you bit into in and mine had more fat and was just as salty. t
The kids enjoyed it and the rest of the food was great though we wish the had fruit in their salad bar. Also by the time everyone was done eating my moms food came out since she had to send it back and it took us a while to find someone to talk to about the food being over salty. Also I got my birthday sundae and it took forever for the kids to get theirs. I would have rather we all get it at the same time. Since gratuity was already included we didnt add extra for a tip. The people below got more attentive serve than us. It was just sad to hear everyone complain on my birthday how it was the worse experience ever.

We went for brunch to celebrate a 50th Birthday. I noted the birthday within my reservation. Unfortunately, no one from Pomona Valley Mining Co. addressed that we were celebrating a big Birthday. :( .

Food was good but presentation was sloppy and unkept. Spills everywere, low on food items.
