I truly enjoyed my visit to the Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch! From the get go we were greeted with smiles, everyone was lovely and they made sure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our meal! We enjoyed the setting, especially the theme of the night which was Beauty and the Beast which was subtle but lovely nonetheless! The food was amazing!! Truly a way to treat yourself out to! I would truly recommend it to anyone looking to have a nice dinner, maybe even a date! WONDERFUL PLACE! keep it up!!

I had dinner during the first open eveninf of the quarter. Restaurant opened a few minutes before my 6pm reservation. The hostest was prompt, courteous and sweet. I was seated promptly. My server was Lily. Lily was knowledgable, made thoughtful recommendations and attentive. Most of the staff are students. Food was decent, if it wasnt for educational and students support prices would be considered a little high. Wine was reasonably priced. I did not have dessert.

Everything was great. The only comment I'd like to make is our dear waitress was very nice, however her voice is very low and it was hard to hear what she was saying. Another nit, but worthy of mentioning is that we received a glass of water without a straw. I did as the busboy for a straw and he mysteriously disappeared. I finally had to call a manager over to obtain a straw.

Other than the items above, my date and I had a great time at lunch. The food was excellent and we plan to return for dinner.

My arugula salad is a little plain...maybe if they add cranberries and cheese, it'll be more tasty...

Overall I think the food could be better....

Mac and Cheese definitely needs to be better...I expected Mac and Cheese with luscious three cheese combination with fresh grated parmesan....and probably a side of thin garlic bread....

Mexican Chocolate cake for dessert served cold....upon my request they did warmed it up...
I wish it's melty inside with chocolate flowing out....with Horchata ice cream it'll be a perfect match...
And I wish the chocolate was the true, dark, quality chocolate...with the sweet and bitter combination...

I ordered coffee and I think the price for a cup of coffee is a bit pricy....$4.25...
I came with an expectation of great good with great price. The price of the food is good, but not so with the drinks...

I came here once for dinner and I thought my dinner experience was way better.

I hope you can improve! :) Thanks.

We had nice seating in President's Room for a group of 5. Service was delayed with serving coffee and at end of our meal we tried to order dessert and we told that they ran out! We were very disappointed. :-( Overall, we had a nice time, food and ambiance was good.

Had a nice lunch, a heirloom tomato and mozzarella appetizer, split a corned beef and a steak sandwich, and finished with a berry crumble. Only complaint is the serving of the steak sandwich, Marina took my concern about it being a whole strip, and was a gracious server. I would highly recommend this laboratory and restaurant for a lovely meal with a view

The food and service were excellent. The background noice was minimal, making it a very good venue for conducting business or for catching up with good friends. I found it refreshing to interact with the enthusiastic student staff, and I would recommend The Ranch to everyone.

My husband and I went to Kellogg Ranch for Valentines Day. The special of the day was encouraged so we tried it. The lobster mac and cheese was amazing! Then the main dish was a piece of steak with a small amount of lettuce salad on top. The salad was very tasty and so was the steak. I think there needed to be more salad or a veggie with the meat because just eating meat as the main course with a few leaves was too meaty. The Chocolate covered strawberries were also wonderful, however I have never been to an upscale restaurant that did not have a cake or tart etc. option for dessert as well as bread served with the meal.
The servers were very sweet and we loved being with them in this atmosphere. They did neglect to refill my drink even though I reminded them 3 times and our server got our bill wrong 3 times. My husband could have walked away with only paying for one entre:0
Overall we loved our lunch at the Ranch and any suggestions we would make are only suggestions of what we like and prefer. You are doing a wonderful job and we hope to come back soon!

This place is hard to find. It is a student-run restaurant in the Cal Poly Pomona campus. Google Maps failed us. It is at the end of Horse Hill Drive on top of the hill overlooking the 57 freeway. The food was great and very reasonable for a 3-course meal. The menu is prix-fixe with an appetizer, main course and dessert. There are at least 3 options to choose from for each course. We will come back here since we live 15 minutes away.

It's a nice restaurant and it's great to give hospitality students the experience cooking and serving. The service was fine, but WAY too much. We had multiple servers/managers asking us how everything was and whether we wanted anything else -- over and over again. Frankly, it interrupted our conversation too many times. Once or twice is plenty. The kids were cute, however, and it's hard to get upset when they are trying so hard.

Brooke F. did a great job making sure our dining and drink needs were met. She was kind and professional. She made helpful suggestions and did everything she could to make sure we enjoyed our dining experience. My husband and I ordered the from the pre fixe menu - $30.00 for three courses. Great deal! My first course - the Ahi and avocado poke - was delicious - beautifully dressed. Our strip steaks were fantastic . And the complimentary pretzel rolls were scrumptious. This place is a hidden gem. That the food was prepared by culinary students is just wonderful. They did a superb job. We hope to return soon!

Afraid to give a worthy 5 rating, because it's difficult to get a reservation. It must be noted, the restaurant has always lived up to my 5 star rating. The food is well seasoned, I ordered a steak sandwich; which I never due to lack of tenderness, the steak was absolutely tender. Son ordered fish, of which he absolutely raved over. Next time. If I can get a reservation, I will order the turkey club, daughter in-law stated it was carved turkey and not commonly served processed poultry.
