The food is decent however it is too expensive....not worth the rates being charged. The service was very good at one point however it has deteriorated in the recent past e.g. dirty napkins, dirty spoons, long wait times and unapologetic staff.

Hi Vivek, Thank you for the information. We apologize for your less-than-satisfactory time with us. We have had some equipment issues which are currently being fixed. That being said, that is no excuse for the service you received. If you would like, please reach out to our restaurant manager Marvin Negrete at (909) 868-5915 directly. He would like to speak...

not the most inspiring place and if wanting to have a memorable meal you don't go here. If however needing to work and stay at the hotel you can't go wrong with their huge salads. They also have some decent drinks on the menu for reasonable prices so you'll be ok!

Every time I come here the food is better and better now all of the greens come from the farm. The Bolognese is out of this world. This is a great place to eat if you come to the fair and you don't want the fair food

We usually eat here at least once if not more during our 2 day stays for the LA county fair. Been doing this for 4 years. Usually the service is excellent. the food is always good. This year we had some fish tacos that were very tasty. We can charge it to our room bill which is nice.

I left after 35 minutes of no service when the party arriving fully 20 minutes after me was seated and approached to have their order taken. The one other party in the room when I arrived was yelling for service. Not a good experience.

At the Sheraton for a dance convention. One of the dancers turns 18. We request a room for a little birthday cake and food. Front desk Briana (amazing lady!!!) goes out of her way to help. We are told we can have garden room and we can bring cake. We ask about food- Marvin wants to charge us $17-20 per... More

Kailani, Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience. As a restaurant business, it is against our policy to allow outside food (meals) into our venue. While we strive to be as accommodating as possible for all our guests and their needs, we have a standard private party minimum cost for all events such as yours. The price we provided... More

The food is outstanding. Great service. Side dining room for groups. Beautifully decorated. A special menu was available for the holiday. Inside the Sheraton Hotel. The Dr Bob's ice cream for dessert was incredible.

We stayed at the hotel for our conference. The menu had great options and the salmon lemon vinaigrette salad was amazing. Kids meal burgers and fries my kids loved. Plus Bacon mac & Cheese was a huge hit.
