Marisa was a wonderful coordinator for our wedding day. She was kind, patient and always willing to help. She helped make our day beautiful. The food was great, the service was wonderful, our guest loved our ceremony and reception venue. The venue was within our budget and was a great choice to hold our wedding. We loved the rustic feel of the restaurant.

Marisa was also the coordinator we had for my mom's bday party a few months before our wedding, so when we decided to book PVMC, that decision was also based on knowing that she would be there to help us plan our special day. Marisa is very professional but still personable, which helps a great deal because I needed all the help I can get because event planning is not my strong suit. She helped me with details that I would have probably over-looked. She is very patient and flexible with changes that were being made. Marisa is also very easy to contact, which I appreciated the most. She went above and beyond, I'm sure because it definitely felt like it! She even made sure my dress was straight and flowing gracefully right before I entered the room to walk down the aisle. I would highly recommend Marisa and would definitely book the venue for future events again.

I couldn't say more about the PVMC. They offered several catering choices to meet my tastes and budget, they offered several room choices, and dates very close to my date, which I didn't think I was going to be able to find. They offer packages that include table & chair covers, a cake (from your choice of 3 vendors), a choice of 2 hors d' oeuvres, a margarita station (or an exchange of that for something else which we did exchange for an extra hors d' oeuvres item), a champagne toast, table wine with meal, and a ONE HOUR hosted bar (on the restaurants tab)!!!!!! I think the one hour host bar is what was the icing on the cake for us (no pun intended).

Making the decision to host our wedding and reception at the PVMC was the best decision, they met and exceeded all of our needs, and made all the in betweens for the reception seamless. Not to mention how courteous, helpful, caring, and professional their catering manager Sheryl King and head waiter Horacio were. They helped keep everything flowing, and updated us on everything, every step of the day. Thank you!!!!

I had to move my venue location to PVMC 3 months before the wedding!! They had the day available, their pricing was a little higher than I originally planned for, but they made it a very special experience. It was well worth the money.

Marisa was awesome! She delivered the wedding we envisioned and our reception was beautiful! When we experienced an issue with the flower vendor, Marisa quickly stepped in to resolve the issue and ensured that our event would go on without a hitch. My husband and I loved our wedding reception and plan to go back for our anniversary to enjoy a delicious dinner and the incredible view! Thank you Marisa and PVMC!

The staff at this location was great. I called a few venues before I chose this one and no one acted as excited about my wedding as they did. I felt like they really cared about my day and not just my money. They were very helpful with references as well. The day of was perfect, there was a floor manager that kept everything rolling along with my coordinator. The only thing that didn't turn out as planned the day of was the champagne wasn't to everyone before the toasts. But that's ok, it was a little of my coodinators fault on that one. But all in all, the place, the people and the food were fabulous!

I had my wedding at the Pomona Valley Mining Company, so they were also my chosen vendor for catering. Pomona has fantastic food and I was very pleased with it the day of! I had heard mixed reviews for large catering at Pomona, but we had 150 guests and everyone really enjoyed the meal-very pleased! Read less

Pomona Valley Mining Company provides an excellent location and has the best prices in all of SoCal. I love that they included chair covers, an ice sculpture, fun extras like a margarita station, and one hour of a hosted bar. Their food was outstanding. I looked all over San Gabriel Valley and finally decided to head to Pomona because the price, quality, and the things included cannot be beat. However, in the process of reserving the space I felt a little railroaded into certain decision and the person I was working with gave me a little trouble with some simple requests (such as closing the bar after service started--I had my own reasons and I don't think that anyone attending had a problem with it). I also felt a little put upon to hire a particularly baker to do the cake and since that cake was rather unimpressive we went looking for someone else. It turned out that several bakers were included in our catering package, but only after a phone call or two did we find that out.

In all I would give this place a great review and if you can put up with being a little firm about what you want I think that you would be completely satisfied. If not, the view will make up for it!!

When I first started planning with Pomona I was working with Shawna and she was great! I couldn't ask for more, however during my process I believe Shawna got a promotion and another lady was given my account to run. I was not very impressed with the new lady. First, she changed my seating arrangement and created a very unattractive floor plan for my guest seating. When my fiance called to speak with her about the problem, she was a bit hard to get a hold of and was rude to my fiance on the phone. In the end Shawna came to the rescue and fixed my seating plan and made sure my reception was everything I wanted. The food was good and the view was spectacular. The service people were a bit slow to get the food out and many of my guest later told me they were never served cake, although I had an entire tier left over at the end of the night that was never even cut. Overall, the room was beautiful and I really enjoyed my night. Looking back I think the service could have been better, but i didn't really notice at the time. i would use them again, but next time I would be more mindful of makking sure the service staff were doing what they should be doing.

Not very professional. Although it is beautiful, if I had to do over, I would do my wedding elsewhere.
