Great brunch. The food was delicious. Overall great experience.
Always very good, and great when the weather allows you to eat outside.
Our waitress was exceptional! She was very attentive and helpful. Food was exceptional and not a long wait for our food to come out. Portion size was excellent also. The price wasn’t bad either for the food that we received. I will definitely come back again and will let people know what a wonderful experience I had.
My cod special was very good. Spouse liked his salad and crab cakes. Tiramisu dessert was very small but good, and coffee was very good. Ambiance very nice and quieter.
Lunch excellent, nice variety. Host was constantly wiping surfaces with sanitary wipes (not a dirty rag). Would definitely eat here again for lunch, and actually was our second visit. Have not been for dinner.
Love the Pond House. The menu offers great options, the food is delicious and a feast for the eyes, the service excellent in a beautiful setting.
Had the first table on the right behind the frosted glass partition. Would have preferred a window view!
3 egg omelette a bit much for this gal... next time I may just order 2 eggs and a few sides!
The food is very creative with a great presentation
This time the wait was longer than previous experience but not a problem
The waitresses are very pleasant and accommodating
My boyfriend ordered medium rare fillet but it was very rare
Usually I find things are cooked very well but this was definitely Rare
Delicious meals and wonderful atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this place. I can't wait to visit in the spring and summer to enjoy all the flowers outside.
Making a reservation is recommended and open table was super easy and helpful in that regard. The food and service was amazing.
My husband and I were looking forward to lunch at the Pond House and it exceeded our expectations.
The Pond House needs a menu makeover and possibly a new chef. The last few times we've been there, we've been disappointed in the menu choices and the quality of the food. Also, given the prices, there are few, if any, extras such as a bread basket. When I asked for crackers to accompany a bowl of soup that I ordered, I was told that there weren't any. I ordered the bean burger recently and was served a tasteless, gooey patty that barely held together. It was supposed to come with cheese and aioli sauce, but the (grated) cheese was barely a sprinkle and there was only about a teaspoon of the sauce spread out on the plate. I love the ambience and location of this restaurant and would like to dine there more often, but the negatives are keeping me from doing that.
CMAR, I am so sorry I did not get a chance to speak with you on Wednesday during your visit. I will share all of your comments and take them seriously. I hope that you ask for me the next time you make a reservation at the Pond House. I am always here from Wednesday to Sunday 12:00PM on, and I would love a chance to speak with you. I will be sure we make this perfect for you on your next visit. Thank you for your time writing this review, Jeffrey and the Pond House Staff
My family and I visited the Pond House on a Sunday. The food was AMAZING! Definitely try the breakfast nachos. I have to say what really made the experience so great was the wonderful waitress we had. Think her name was Denise not sure. She gave us recommendations and checked in on us at perfect times. She was very friendly and memorized our order. She knew the menus and again was just really friendly. She told us about the rewards program. We signed up. We had a great experience.
Thank you for your fabulous review! We much appreciate you and will share all of your comments with our staff. I have entered your rewards info and you will be receiving a conformation soon! See you soon, Jeffrey and the Pond House Staff

Fabulous food. Wonderful setting!
Xcellent service and the food was tremendous
As always the service and food were excellent
Thank you so much Eveningstar! See you soon. Jeffrey and the Pond House Staff
Absolutely one of the best meals I have eaten. The calamar was exceptional! Tender and full of flavor. The house salad dressed was amazing and the duck was cooked perfect. The waitress was lovely and noting was a problem. Just a four star dinner...going back soon!!!!
What a joy this place was on last Sunday! We are going back today. Fresh flowers all over, art in halls, and a large Jackie Kennedy painting! The food was perfect and there stuffed French toast was to die for. Could not have been happier with our server Jess. After eating we walked around the pond and Elizabeth Park. This is my new brunch spot no question. Before we left we saw the Banquet hall. OMG. Can't believe I had never been here. Can't wait as they said there is a patio in the summer right on the side of the pond!
Thank you much for dining with us and giving us such a high scoring review. We will see you soon!! I will share this review with our team!!! Pond House Cafe Team
Waitress was great! Enjoyed our table with a view. Lobster blt was extremely lacking in lobster and bacon. Very disappointed
Great tasting food. Food presentation is always attractive and appealing. Ambiance is warm and inviting.
Debjohn!! Thank you much for dining with us and giving us such a high scoring review. We will see you soon!! Pond House Cafe Team
Server was friendly but minimally attentive to our table and beside us. Seemingly understaffed. Did make 2 amazing entree recommendations though!
Great restaurant, aesthetically beautiful, wonderful food.
Thank you much for dining with us and providing such a high scoring review. We love to hear your positive feedback. We will see you soon!! Pond House Cafe Team
Pond House Cafe beat all my expectations. The atmosphere was gorgeous. So spring like on a winter's day. The food was fantastic. We wanted fried calamari as an appetizer which they did not have so we ordered the entree to share with 4 people and it was delicious. The service was ok. The issue was that someone was training and I don't think it was clear cut as to who was supposed to check in on us. But I get it, they have to be trained sometime and they were both very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Front end service has improved and staff was prompt and courteous.
Great food and ambience made for an enjoyable night out.
Kerry! Your comments will be shared with the staff and we thank you for noticing! We will continue to improve. Thank you much for dining with us and giving us such a review. We will see you soon!! Pond House Cafe Team
Everything was top shelf!!!
Have eaten here many times. Had the seafood special, cod wrapped in prosciutto with fennel and white beans - just ok. Salmon is good, lamb is good. Sometimes I think the chef tries too hard.
Always happy here...food is the best...interesting options...great wait staff.
Food choices were eclectic and tasted very good.
Although accidentally canceled by the Pond House, a table was available to us at 12:30. Our waiter Michael was attentive and our order came out in a timely manner. Food was excellent.
I really enjoyed my experience at the Pond House Cafe. The food was excellent and the staff was so friendly.
Everything was truly excellent except the table was tiny and the plates were large so we kept on knocking things around.
We were so happy with our meals and experience! It was our first time there, and we were scoping it out as a possible wedding venue. We were very impressed! Thanks for a great evening!
food was great, location is great, service was great, BYOB is great!
Nice vibe, good service and tasty food.
We came in early for Valentines day as a party of 4. We were seated immediately and the atmosphere had been set up for other incoming parties to celebrate. The tables were amazing, and our attention by our server was outstanding and delightful. The special menu looked amazing, although many of us selected entrees and appetizers from the standard menu. The staff was really kind despite it being a busy evening. It was a real joy to experience the Pond House on Valentines Day, a one of a kind experience. All of the additional accouterments such as the chocolate covered strawberries, and fireplace were really appreciated. Will definitely attend again on a holiday, or a non-holiday, but this restaurant will remain one of my favorites for special days.
My fiance and I are getting married at the pond house cafe this summer (2020) and have dined at the cafe a couple times since we booked our wedding. The location is the key to the overall ambiance of this cafe. The food is good... occasionally we get a dish that doesn't blow us away, but the overall creativity of the food and the presentation, coupled with attentive service, makes this a nice place to go for our special occasions. We are excited to be able to go the place where will be married, and I look forward to being able to come back to the cafe and the park in the future.
A beautiful spot. Food is very good. Take a walk around the grounds to enjoy your experience even more.
Good food, good service, relaxing atmosphere. An enjoyable time was had by all.
