Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch

American | Pomona, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Unexpected dining experience. I almost cancelled the reservation when I saw the menu. There were only set menu available. I was very hungry that day and wanted to try as many possible choices. There were only 4 main dishes. Fish, Chicken meatball, short rib and vegetarian. So I ordered both chicken meatball and short rib, my husband ordered the salmon. All of them were better than expected. Our student server was a little nervous but she really tried hard though she did not know much about wine but she was still learning. :-) However, she did well on all settings including changing the wine glasses from white wine to red wine. Overall, we had a great time with our friends. We even bought 12 bottles of 2016 Zinfandel. We will definitely come back. More

Discover Pasadena

Known as a mission city, San Gabriel is an artistic town where people love creativity and innovation. The food is a part of the entire scene with American fusion leading the way. Duck hash is made from duck confit, apricots, and chile jam and served at many of the American restaurants near the Cordova-style mission entrance. Mediterranean foods are a welcome addition to the area's diverse cuisine options with choices like spaghetti squash casserole with caramelized onions, organic tomatoes, zucchini and freshly made mozzarella cheese. Italian is another favorite, featured at fine dining establishments where you can get authentic handmade pasta and other provincial dishes.
