I visited with two friends for the first time on Sunday morning around 10:30 a.m. Amazingly diverse and creative dishes, mostly with meats, we're cooked in a dozen international stles. I created my own omelet which was perfectly cooked in the classic French way. It was served with a delicious pear muffin, roasted potatoes and an exotic fruit salad. House... More

Brunch awesome coffee muffins, I had the Chelsea toast eggs and sausage! Yum! Great service with a nice casual atmosphere. The parking is a little tough.

great relaxed, casual place for brunch/ lunch in the weekend: start of with fresh juice mimosa's and move on to a very creative menu, styled like a trip around the world … as far as we could taste, see or hear … all excellent !

pomelo has been our go-to restaurant after yoga class for years. the menu is ordered by geographic place names, with a good selection of vegetarian options, and changes several times a year with the seasons. the food is great; we are home cooks and enjoy the meals here as something we would not prepare at home. owner is a genius...

We had the Eastlake, which is smoked trout with a horseradish cream sauce, and poached eggs. Absolutely wonderful. Also good was the toasted rustic bread. We can't review any other brunch items because when we went back, we were compelled to order the Eastlake again. Casual neighborhood vibe.

I write because of a very upsetting service experience. I have enjoyed the food at this restaurant for a number of years and have been a relatively regular guest. Because of this and the restaurant’s proximity to my home, I engaged them to provide the food for my recent wedding. I chose the dishes and paid about half the tab... More

Pomelo is a cute, small, neighborhood restaurant, cozy, but not very fancy. The food however is amazing and so reasonably priced. We were a large group of seven that they graciously accommodated on a busy Friday night. We chose several appetizers and many different dinners and each person was impressed by the interesting menu, the complex ingredients, and the amazing... More

While visiting our daughter in San Francisco, we let her be our guide to great restaurants in the Noe Valley and Pomelo was one of her excellent choices. Their prices were reasonable and the food was very tasty. The names of the appitizers and main courses were kind of unusual but so was the food! We started with Ulsan, which... More

My family of adult kids , my wife and I all enjoyed unique dishes. I had Lanzhou: fresh egg noodles stir fried with ginger, scallion and garlic, with peppered ahi tuna, seared rare and topped with a miso-sesame drizzle. The staff was very friendly and helpful in understanding the dishes and spices offered. The place is fairly small and noisy... More
