When I arrived the hosts had pleasant smiles. Felt comfortable from the start. We had a cozy table with a nice view. The whole staff was very professional. Our waiter Stephen was very helpful and sociable. I would definitely recommend it to friends, family as well as co-workers.

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!

Food somewhat slow in coming out. We hand an one hour limit for lunch so by the time the food came to the table we had to eat it in about 20 minutes.

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.

Good food! This is a student run restaurant - the service is very attentive. The menu is set for a quarter with weekly specials. I had an affogato for dessert when I was there - it was very good. Every item on the menu looked yummy, so I had difficulty choosing. I went with the strawberry salad - 5 stars, and the club sandwich - 5 stars. I appreciated that the fruit cup with the sandwich had blackberries in it in addition to melon and pineapple. Good combo. It's a little tricky to find the restaurant - just follow the directions on their web page. Great to see the students learning the ropes.

My long-time friends and I thoroughly enjoy lunching at Kellogg Ranch. Years ago, we were part of a ladies group which regularly met at your fine restaurant, and utilized Cal Poly meeting rooms as well. It is truly a delight to return to Kellogg Ranch and we thought the new décor very current and lovely. Your staff has always been excellent, too.

Had a great lunch with friends and family here. Made a reservation and were seated immediately. How often does that happen anymore?
Really nice ambiance - quiet, modern interior, and an AMAZING view of the rolling hills around Cal Poly! Have seen it at night and it is even prettier with all the lights. Would be a great place for a date night.
Shared many of the items. I'm not much of an appetizer person, but theirs were fantastic! I am a lamb-hater, but the Lamb Huaraches were yummy, the shrimp ceviche also, and everyone raved over the avocado bruschetta (it was gone before I got a chance!). A nearby table ordered the steak fries which also looked really good. The catch of the day topped with pineapple salsa was delicious. Also the turkey club. My daughter devoured her spinach and strawberry salad. I didn't try the Pozole, although I wish I had. The person who ordered it said it was a little too spicy for their taste, but I thought it looked really good! The Cobb Salad was also yummy, although I did miss the bacon.
I was waaay too full for dessert, but did try a bite of the berry cheesecake. Really good, and I liked the fact it was not overly sweet.
It is student-run, so it is fun to watch them learn all the aspects of running a restaurant. With this in mind, allow plenty of time - we had a very relaxed lunch - all three courses took 1 hour 45 minutes.

The menu changes each quarter with a new group of students. It's fun to see the students at work in the kitchen and serving you from the moment you walk in. The food is always tasty and offers a nice chose in all the options from appetizers to dessert. We meet as work colleagues that never get a chance to talk and share. We shared appetizers, and desserts. The students work so hard to make your experience the best. The tips go towards scholarships so that the "hands on" learning can continue. Learn by doing.... the Cal Poly motto is certainly carried out here.
