    I've been to Horatio's many times, as I work not too far away. It's a really nice getaway for lunch. You get a nice ambiance, a great view, and good food. It can be both great for groups or for a romantic meal. There is a variety of food for everyone, including vegetarians. My only complaint would be that sometimes the food can take a little long.

    Eight of us dined at Horatio's and were completely satisfied with the food and service. The person who served us that night was the best I have ever had in the years I have dined at Horatio's. She was efficient, seeing to the smallest of our requests with such grace and friendliness. Those who ordered prime ribs were ecstatic, not a trace left of their meal.I had the Mimosa drink for the first time and will order it again. And the dessert, the Key Lime pie, didn't disappoint at all. Thanks for a wonderful evening to remember for a long time.

    We came to celebrate my husband's birthday. We eat there several times a year and always love the menu. This time we were especially pleased with the menu choices. Seemed like there was a change and it was better than ever! I requested that a friend, Leanne, be our server (if she was working) and we were fortunate that she was! Everyone enjoyed their meals, the service was fantastic (of course), and a great time was had by all. Thanks so much!

    Was here two weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon. Service was awful but food was decent. Went on a Thursday and service was much better but the food not so much. I had the chop burger, which I had last time I was here and it was good. In Thursday, yuck! Smothered in the sauce. Vet disappointed.

    Horatio's is a decent place for a steak and seafood, but is not inexpensive by any means. The service is friendly, the food is good. I like the fact that it's located on the marina. It can be a nice romantic spot to have dinner, sit by the window and look out at the dock and water and after dinner take a stroll. The restaurant itself is old and can use a facelift. Foodwise - we had oysters, calamari, pork chop, prime rib and the fruit cobbler. The pork chop was the special for the evening and although it was good, it's not the best I've had. I think it could have been a little juicier, but it had good flavor and a nice crust. Everything else we had to eat was good, but not amazing. It's definitely a nice, casual place to come for dinner.

    The restaurant had a casual atmosphere. It was on the water with lovely views. The service staff was very friendly and helpful (3 visits in one week for dinner). The menu had many options including specials, vegetarian choices and a nice selection of fish. The wine list was weighed toward California wines, the prices were very reasonable

    I had the sirloin steak. The steak was excellent, but at $28.00 I expected a way better side than French fries,(which were listed on the menu with a misleading pseudo-classy sounding name that didn't tip me off that they were mere fries). It should have included asparagus and baked potato, or small, (but high quality) salad. In other words 2 decent sides. $28.00 for just a steak and a couple fries is inexcusable, no matter how good the steak is. I won't go back, because it's not worth combination of the price and the drive. I went there 7 years ago, and it was better then.

We take new employees in our department to Horatios to welcome them to our team and it's always well received. The service staff is pleasant, inviting and knowledgeable of the menu.

    My friend and I enjoyed Sunday brunch and, while the food was fine, our young server needed more experience. He interrupted too many times, always apologetically. He poured more iced tea,but forgot about topping up the coffee. Trying to take the payment after just a minute or two necessitated another interruption and apology. That said, he was sweet, smiling and probably new. I would definitely return for all the good things about Horatio's! And also to see his improvement!!

    I made reservations for brunch at Horatio's for my mom's birthday; we had been there before, and we both loved it. When I made the reservation, I requested a nice table(for a group) by the window, so we could have a view, and when we arrived, we were escorted to the perfect table with a lovely view. Our waitress provided exceptional service; she was very polite(apologizing for interrupting the convo when she checked on us), patient(giving us extra time for everyone to arrive and then for us to figure out what to order), and helpful(telling us about endless mimosas and her fave drink). The food was OUTSTANDING. Everyone in the group got something different, so I got to try 2 salads, a burger, and salmon.All I can say is: YUMMMY!!!

    With a little bit of effort Horatio's could disprove the saying "the better the view the worse the dining." The kitchen was slow; the salad never arrived. Which was ok because it would have been too much food to have after an ample and tasty Calamari appetizer and before the prime rib (which wasn't the best I have ever had but was a generous portion and a good value for the price). The problem was the horseradish sauce that looked like errant mashed potatoes. Not a happy surprise. But one that could be averted by putting the horseradish in a little container. This was not the first time this issue has been noted in an online review. Waitress was professional and friendly, more points for upfront handling of the absence of rare prime rib.

    Horatio's never fails to deliver. The views at sunset are simply breathtaking, and if you're lucky enough to get a window seat, watching the oranges and reds and yellows siloutted against the boats at the dock leave you feeling at peace. I've never had anything less than a perfect meal there and this time it was no different. Each bite a sensation of utter joy....everything simply sublime. It's the best.

    We decided to try Horatio's based on a friend's recommendation. We were surprised with how large the place is. With last minute Open Table reservations, we were seated next to the window with a view. Quite pleasant. We ordered a chef's special, Jambalaya, and were very pleased with our choice. It was excellent. The service was good, and the views of the water add to the ambiance. I would go back for the food, especially the bread, but might think twice because the prices are high. My husband and I spit the salad and the Jambalaya, so that helped with the bill. The portion for a split was perfect. We didn't have room for dessert.

    It is sosad that the Mayor of San Leandro is satisfied with the muck in the water. It was such a nice site when the water was clear, the shore birds were in the water and the boats filled the Marina. Hopefullly when he is out of office the citizens will be able to get their choice back. Now it is best not to sit near the windows.
