The pork chop was so grainy I could not eat it. I’m disappointed they took the short ribs off the menu. The vegetable portion is always generous

Pomelo never disappoints. I love the ambiance, and the attention given as a guest. I take friends, out of town guests and family to share this great place. See you again soon!

Pomelo is a great restaurant for a special evening out. The food is consistently good, service has always been friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is very enjoyable and inviting! Prices are a little high, keeping us from dining here more frequently. But, when we do want to splurge for something special, Pomelo’s is one of our favorites!

At one point we were not happy here but the owner contacted us, made changes, and now it's one of my favorite places to eat. The GF pizza crust is insane!!!

Staff need training. Not knowledgeable about menu items and even after checking could not answer simple question about the chicken dish correctly. Most food excellent. Risotto Luke warm. Spaghetti bolognaise bland and watery.

What a beautiful place in what was a former Pomelo orchard. Our server, Brea (who looked like Lyndsey Arnold from Dancing with the Stars by the way and we told her) was wonderful. Very attentive, professional, and great with advising us. I had the chicken which was done in a sort of citrus which really enhanced it. They use their home grown herbs and you can taste the freshness. There is a gelato place on site too and we opted for that for dessert which also did not disappoint!

I love eating at Pomelo. There are few restaurants where I'll eat meat, Pomelo is one.
My favorite dish is the beet salad w steak.

Beautiful place. Nice people. Awkward service. Quality fresh food poorly prepared. They are close but the chef and leadership must ensure the quality food is correctly prepared and flavored. We’re gonna give it a couple months and give it another try. Maybe we caught them in a less than perfect night (Thu.). Ck

It was a lovely outdoor venue for a Ladies' 70th birthday party get together. Brussel sprouts and hummus appetizers were delicious, as was the wine and champagne. The staff was very attentive to our needs. Thanks!

I ordered a salad and my friend had the short ribs benedict. We both loved our brunch! I wasn't expecting much from the chopped salad, but it was very good.

I would go there much more frequently if they would expand their menu and offer more vegetarian dishes - such as a veggie burger or creative veggie entree such as grilled veggies or tacos. As it is, vegetarians are pretty much limited to a salad or pizza.

I went last week and it was amazing. When I went on the 19th, it was almost like our reservation was useless. The three of us had to share one menu. The server was not attentive. We had to remind him about drinks. They came out after we finished our appetizers, our food took a long time to come out. My side was cold. Then we waited a long time for boxes and the check. We seemed more like a hinderance than customers. I’m willing to give another try, but they will have to really step up their game. I understand being short staffed. But the service received was below just being short staffed.

The service was INCREDIBLE! The server was very kind and repeatedly checked up on us. The food was alright. I had the margherita pizza and while the cheese and ingredients were very fresh, it was lacking some flavor. Would be back to try something else!

Date night at Pomelo was AMAZING! From beginning to the end everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our server was Clovis who was fantastic! He called us family and also graciously gave us a complementary dessert as it was our first visit there. I can’t rave enough about the wonderful service and delicious food! Will definitely be back.

What a wonderful surprise to discover the Tuesday special of pizza and bottle of wine for $25!! This deal was only made better by the quality of the food and service. Wood-roasted olives, followed by the mushroom pizza (I like to skim off the arugula from the top first, like a pre-dinner salad) and a bottle of Syrah made for a perfect light dinner date after a busy day. Thank you, Nichole, for the exceptional service.
