We made the reservation three weeks before. On the night of reservation we showed up only to find out that the restaurant is closed for a private event. They should have given us the courtesy of letting us know that they are not able to honor the reservation but they didn't.

NO NO NO !!!!
Made a reservation for dinner for 5. Came to Restaurant on time only to find it C L O S E D !!
NO Note on Door.. just CLOSED... Spoke to a building representative and was told they were "Closed for
Summer". Bad bad show.... Paid for parking and a nice night out. Restaurant NEVER called us to tell us that Reservation was useless so found ourselves outside on a rainy night in Mid-town NYC with no reservation for dinner. Well done restaurant owners!! Sad story...

Made a reservation for 4. Had 2 Pulsd vouchers. Restaurant allegedly “closed for the summer” but they never notified me. Showed up for my reservation, the doors were locked, and no one answers the phone.

I brought my husband and three teenage boys to NYC for their first visit. I had made a late-night reservation for after the Part 1 performance of Harry Potter. We took an Uber to the restaurant only to find that it was closed...so much for having a reservation. We never got an email, a text, nor a phone call. It was very disappointing.

The food and service was outstanding. I was really impressed all around. After we finished our meals we all had desserts that were out of this world. Sometimes we like to go out just for dessert and coffee and now we know exactly were we will be going, Pomona! We will be going back very soon even if it's just for a few drinks at the bar or for DESSERT!

First off the waiter didn’t know the menu at all... Then it’s my anniversary night and the manager comes and sits with some patrons literally right next to us picking at a plate of food..how rude...To top it off we had to wait another 15 mins to leave because the computer shut down not to mention it took 20 mins for someone to ask us if we were done and wanted dessert. Not good at all...

I had the wonder chance to celebrate my birthday at Pomona and Savage Lounge. The whole staff was so accommodating, kind and professional from the moment I was greeted by security and the beautiful Hostess to the moment we left. My friends continue to rave about how incredible the food was. I was ecstatic when they paraded to our table with sparklers and the strawberry rhubarb sundae singing “Happy Birthday!” to me! It was nice to have something so special rather than the typical cake. Every bite, from the baked clams to the house made marshmallows in the sundae can without a doubt send you to food heaven! After dinner my whole group was escorted to Savage lounge in the back of the restaurant where we were setup at cozy table. The energy was high and the music kept us on our feet for hours! I would highly recommend to everyone! Thank you EVERYONE at Pomona and Savage Lounge for such an incredible night! ❤️❤️❤️

The food was fabulous from the starters to the entrees. The drinks were great and did not skimp on the alcohol. Each person at my table had something different to drink and I even asked the bartender to create something not on the menu and was pleased. I will say the portion sizes are tiny! My table was grateful for the appetizers because although the entrees were delicious, they were gone in minutes because there was so little there. I had the lobster fettuccine and joked that there were four strands of pasta. Overall, wonderful restaurant and highly recommended!

The food was NOT good. Shrimp was over cooked! The steak hs too much pepper! The decanter has a hole and wine spilled everywhere. We were given another bottle, but what a mess!
They do not have black napkins so they gave me cocktail napkins to put on my lap..smh. There were not many people, actually it was just us and yet I had to pour our wine. Eventually, they realized and handle it accordingly! It was an expensive dinner, wine was great!! We ended up eating someplace else, later in the evening. #dissapointed

Extremely underwhelming dinner location near the Plaza/Central Park area of NYC. I assume most individuals who dine at this establishment are not interested good service or a fun experience. The majority of employees were stand-offish and rude.

There are hundreds of dinner options in NYC -- Strongly recommend avoiding this one.

Our waiter was rude and ignored us for 25 minutes before allowing us an opportunity to get a drink order in. Food was good, a little pricey for what it is, but definitely delicious. The restaurant was half empty and was blasting club music which I thought was a bit odd. However, the quality of the food made up for the few downsides. The filet was outstanding, drinks are unique and delicious, and baked alaska is great and comes with a "show" if you enjoy your food being set on fire!

From the moment we arrived, we felt like honored guests. The staff is friendly and professional, and we felt especially-well-taken-care-of by our server, Stacey. The dining room is spacious and attractive, the lighting just right, and the music isn't too loud. The food was very good, especially the Caesar salad, and (surprise!) the bread and butter served before the meal was truly superb. We shared three small plates and had the seafood stew for two. The stew was good but a little bland... but thankfully not-at-all over-salted, which we both appreciated. Best of all, though, was the service. We look forward to returning.

Loved the vibe and atmosphere
Food was really really good.
The mushroom/chestnut soup was to die for
The turkey dinner left me stuffed and it was like being at home
The mashed potatoes were fantastic
The pecan/cranberry tart was just enough n not overly sweet at all

Thank you Chef Michael, Raschid and Alex for making me feel like I wasn’t celebrating Thanksgiving alone

This was only the restaurant’s second week in operation, but they definitely have it together. Impeccable service, perfectly presented cuisine, and a warm welcoming ambiance all come together to make for a great dining experience.
Our waiter Mathew had an in-depth knowledge of the menu and wines, which is really a testament to the chef’s rapport with the staff when you think about it.

This gem came up on Open table and we're glad we went. The atmosphere is comfortably familiar with a modern twist. The service was great, attentive, professional, knowledgable. The food was exquisitely prepared and elegantly presented. There are vegetarian offerings as well as steak and other proteins. Each item we were served was truly delicious. Make sure you try the duck fat tater tots and cocktail shrimp. Two drawbacks...there is no disabled access and it was very dark in spots, including our table. A small light on each table, a battery operated candle for example, would have been most welcomed. We had to use our phones to read the menu. Awkward. Bathrooms are beautiful.
