Out of town family get together. As usual, the staff at Pomelo provides excellent service with tasty dishes and a great vibe and setting. Then it was across the yard for ice cream. Love the Orchard!

Celebrated a fabulous birthday; the mimosa's were great, Ethan is a superb server, the shrimp, ahi and salmon was excellent, and the chocolate desert and creme brulee topped it off! Will return often.

Friends who have never been were happy with variety of food choices. Downside - lack of parking due to a private event: a number had to park in residential area and walk back. Recommend beet salad, BLAT sandwich or pizza

Second visit in which the meat came out dry and the vegetables barely warm. Although the meal was comped, that's not the point. It will be quite a long time before I venture there again. A shame because we used to frequent it steadily. New management?

Disappointing. Bar staff wasn’t knowledgeable. Food was below average. There are too many good places close by to waste your money here.

The cocktail waitress never said she was only the cocktail waitress and not versed in food orders. So she took part of our food order and messed it up. Also one drink order was wrong then came way too late.

We dined on the patio. Absolutely delicious Brussels sprouts starter! The shrimp cocktail was very good with nice sized shrimp. Amazing seared Ahi Salad. They were able to easily accommodate my allergies. This was our first visit and will definitely return. I can only imagine the lovely brunches here and will definitely return.

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 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!

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.
