My husband and friend enjoyed their meals but my avocado toast was burnt, served cold and the poached eggs were hard and very over cooked. They brought me new eggs but by the time I received them everyone else had finished their meals. Disappointing because usually the avocado toast is delicious. Post COVID The Pony Room is missing it’s stellar 5 star appeal but we still love the ambience and will be back.

Service was top notch though. Live music was nice. I recommend their lower priced items; the expensive entree wasn't special.

The server brought out the food for us but there was no utensils so we had to wait until when he was available to ask. At the end of the meal, when we asked the server to get change so that we can tip the valet parking attendant, he said to ask the parking attendant to get the change. This was rather a disappointing experience.

We waited 45 min for the waiter to bring the bill. We waited at least 15 min for valet to give them our ticket to get our car and they never came so we just grabbed our key and walked to our car.

Top notch service with great food and a great vibe. Not inexpensive but always feels like it is worth it. I had a great skirt steak salad and my friend a club sandwich. I have no recommendations for improvement.

Lots of vegetarian and gluten free choices. Good service, great tasting, quantity and presentation of food. Dishes are bit pricier, especially meat varieties and daily specials. Servers were very good, overall service is what I would expect at higher end restaurants. We were seated outdoors with heaters around which were handy as weather cooled off after sunset. There is no view of any kind from the patio dining but overall atmosphere was very good. Will definitely go there again.

French dip sandwich was bland and the dipping sauce was bland too. Too much bread not enough meat for $30. Shrimp lobster Louie salad was ok. Nothing great for $41.
