Food was good and enjoyed the atmosphere, however didn't quite feel that the price was reflective of the quality of food. Did not feel it was quite worth as much as it was

Great place to bring the family. We arrived early before our reservation because it was a little on the late side and we have two small children. That’s all they had available on the website. They graciously sat us as soon as possible and it helped a lot. The only bad part was the food took long to come out. Other than that, great experience.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 2 year anniversary here and we were happy that we were able to.

To start off, we ordered the fried calamari (which was AMAZING, it reminded us of the calamari we had on Kauai on our honeymoon) and the shrimp cocktail. The cocktail sauce was definitely spicier in the shrimp cocktail than in the calamari, busy still AMAZING!

Main course, my husband ordered the filet and shrimp scampi. Filet was ordered medium rare and came out more on the medium and was a little tougher, but good flavor. I ordered the 10oz prime rib, end cut, and it melted in my mouth like butter. Soooooo good!

We devoured everything and was stuff at the end where we did not order any desserts. But overall pretty happy with our first experience there. This just might be our New Years Wedding Anniversary tradition.

If I’m being honest, it was just a regular experience. Nothing too remarkable. Food was good and the aesthetic was cool. The service was fine. Bartender was heavy handed which I really appreciated.

My mom on the other hand really enjoyed her experience and she’s pretty picky

We have visited PVMC several times before and are always happy with all aspects of the restaurant. The restaurant fits between a high-end steakhouse, price, and family place, no ambience. The customers seem to always be having fun, but never that annoyingly loud customer. We were there this time on New Year's Eve and there was very large party in one of the banquet rooms, but even then, the noise was subdued. The wait staff was quick, fun, polite and professional. If there was down-side to the visit the menu seems to have been reduced. Of course, our speculation are shortages and CD-19 related issues.

I would have given them all 5's, but due to covid, the salad bar was not open and not all of the normal toppings, including the dressing, were not available for my sald.
My filet was amazing!

Fantastic views of the valley as you drink and dine on delicious dishes. Our entire party of 6 ordered different drink and menu selections, and each one was overwhelmingly satisfied with their choices. The scallops and prime rib were delicious. The BBQ ribs were huge and tasty! The salmon filet was moist and delicious Do save room for the mocha ice cream pie for dessert, definitely enough for 3 to share.
The only slightly disappointing aspect was the reception of the hostess when we first arrived. We were not greeted and she seemed preoccupied when we attempted to check in. We waited to the side until she seemed ready to handle our check-in. In watching during that time, she was flustered and her demeanor and mood was transferred to us. Not a great start to a place we had been raving about to our guests!
All on all, aside from that, it gets two thumbs up!

Annual Xmas get together with old friends, bar tender was inattentive, and appeared annoyed for asking to be served.
Our bar tab was 1/4 of what it could have been. He cost you a loss.

HECK OF A RIDE UP THE HILL! THE FOOD IS GREAT WHAT WAS SERVED. THE PORTIONS ARE VERY SMALL FOR THE PRICE ONE PAYS. USED TO HAVE A SOUP AND SALAD BAR. NOW SERVE A SMALL SALAD OR SOUP TO YOUR TABLE. COULD SERVE BOTH AS THE PRICES HAVE GONE UP AND LIMITED IN QUANITY.
THE LARGE SHRIMP AND LARGE SCALLOPS WAS DELICIOUS. THREE OF EACH. LICKED THE PLATE KIND OF SAUCE. THE BABY BACK RIBS WERE REALLY DELICIOUS! HAD PRIME RIB LAST TIME WHICH WAS EXCELLENT. WILL TRY THE BRUNCH ONCE THEY ARE OFFERING THAT CHOICE IN 2022.

My husband made a request to sit in a specific area of the restaurant when he made his reservation, which we did not get when we got there. I was okay with that, but we ordered two wedge salads and his was definitely not. It looked as if they ran out of lettuce and served him what was left. He didn’t complain and just ate it. We don’t complain much, but when the tab is pretty hefty (party of 6) you are inclined to expect a little more.
