Diner Reviews
  • "I would highly recommend for all occasions. Danica took care of our table and was wonderful. They had just changed some menu items and my husband tried the Jerk Salmon - the presentation was so nice he didnt want to ruin it but was glad he did as it tasted perfect. I was very happy with my twice baked chicken and the portions were good."

  • "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."

  • "was disappointed in my entrée this time around , found the stuffed Mahi Mahi with side of white beans a bit on the heavy side ,also found the dialogue of our server a bit over the top, too much information on the Menu and chefs specials and so glad your here and will send compliments to the chef , had my two guest rolling their eyes by the time dinner was over .will be a while before I would conceder returning ."

  • "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've been to Horatio's 5 times in the past 6 months and have been very happy with the food and service - both have been consistently good."

  • "Had a very nice time with my date. The almond crusted scallops and the louie salad were excellent. Our server was very friendly and efficient. Good food, great service, a little pricey though."

  • "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."

  • "Not only is the food extremely enjoyable, Tammy and Chad have been outstanding. Myself and several co-workers work on Hegenberger Rd. and we frequently eat at Horatios. Appreciate the flexibility of the Chef and the way the wait staff goes out of their way to make us comfortable and able to enjoy our delicious meals. Special thank you to Tammy as she is the person we normally ask for. Chad served me an my family once and was delightful as well. Thank you for being a neighborhood gem! Sincerely, Jordan Hill-Washington"

  • "We went to Horatio's for our 22nd wedding anniversary. We had our first date here and have come every year for our anniversary. As always, the service was fantastic! Chad was our server. He's worked here for years and knows how to make people feel special. The food was awesome too! I love the Lobster Bisque and the Burnt Cream (Creme Brulee)!!!"

  • "We are a family of four with 2 boys, 10 and 12. While the food won't blow you away, it's good, reasonable and everyone can find something. The garlic bread is the best i've ever had. The service can be slow sometimes. Even though we make reservation through OpenTable, and there appear to be tables available when we walk in, we are ALWAYS made to wait. It's annoying."

  • "I went for lunch with a group of 5. Service was excellent. Top shelf margarita not the best. I had Mahi Mahi - really good. Everyone else had desert. So delicious next time I'll make room. Great experience. Even the manager offered to take photos for us. Thank you Mr. Irby - I will be back!!"

  • "After a very crazy day, I had the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful view and an amazing martini called "edleflower"....it will change your life:)"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We've been to Horatio's for dinner before, but never for lunch. So this was a first. We were surprised at the lack of patrons, but it allowed us to sit at a window table right on the water. The waiter was excellent, as was the food. All four of us enjoyed very different meals. We came for lunch here because it was convenient for our guests (who were staying at the hotel next door). We'll come back again for lunch because it was a delightful experience."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "I have been a patron since high school and 25 years later it's still just as good as it was back then. The server, Chad, was very intuitive and knowledgeable and very friendly. The food was excellent as well."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I ate brunch at Horatio's and the food was very good. I had the salmon stuffed with crabmeat. My server wasn't attentive in my opinion. I had to ask him for bread when he didn't offer it, he brought me a muffin that was broken in half, and my white asparagus was burnt. Since he didn't come back to check on me, I asked a another food server for another muffin and for asparagus that wasn't burnt. I usually get good service when I come to Horatio's, but not on this visit."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I wasn't expecting too much from Horatio's because San Leandro is not known for fine dining, but it was really good! Celebrating my in-law's 50th anniversary and it was the perfect place for that: folks of all ages could find something on the menu to suit them. I had one of the specials: sesame crusted roast salmon -yum ($28). The calamari appetizer was very tender. Beware, this place is pricey. The petite cut prime rib was $40, regular cut was $47, but great. Definitely a special occasion place. The highlight were the desserts! The key lime pie was amazing...not your typical very tart, thin pie. It was high and fluffy with a generous layer of real whipped cream. Peach blueberry cobbler-yum. Salted caramel martini!- double yum!"

  • "Another great meal, the crab dip appetizer is my favorite. Salmon special was delicious."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We arrived about 20 minutes early to get a drink at the bar. We decided to order apps that could be brought to our table. Good thing we did because we ended up eating them at the bar since our table wasn't ready for more than 15 minutes PAST the reservation time - what was the point of making a reservation!?? Dining with older people who are very particular is always a challenge and when our table was late they were not happy. Thankfully the apps were good and the service was great once we were seated."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I'll say that the food is consistent and good here but the place is in dire need of two things...the first is a face lift. She's old and tired and needs sprucing up. The other is they need to remember they have a very busy lunch crowd and need to act like it. We need to be served quickly as we don't have the luxury of dawdling since most of us are employees from around the area. Nothing is close by so we all have to drive to and from taking up the rest of our time."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I find Horatio's a good spot for a week night business dinner. The service is good the pace is not rushed, the food is good and the menu varied enough for most appetites."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I had never been there so I didn't know what to expect. We had a very nice lunch. I will definitely go back when I am in the area."

  • "we went all out---appetizers, salads, main course, dessert....all wonderful, as usual.....the Burnt Cream is still the bomb, after all these years.....I had salmon and prime rib, portions very large, tasty. Very happy"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Service was very good. I ordered the prime rib and salmon. Unfortunately the prime rib was so fibrous that I couldn't finish it, and the salmon lacked flavor. I have always considered Horatio's a San Leandro gem, but my last experience calls this into question. As always though, the Burnt Cream was fantastic!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We all found the food to be tasty and well served. The service was good, altho we had a large group, the server was prompt and personal. Horatio's has held up well and always pleasant to dine there."

  • "Nice menu. We have always enjoyed the food here. It does get noisy in the dining room. So if you are looking for a quiet dinner ask for a table near the edges of the dining room or up top."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Menu is tired. My lunch partner and I ordered fish tacos. We neglected to ask and surprised to find out that the "fish" is breaded and fried? When you think a server's attentiveness would be welcome, this particular server approached our table 6 times prior to placing our order. Felt like we had to make an ordering decision within minutes of sitting down. Plain annoying."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed another good dinner and great service."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Pea salad is unique and delicious. We received a large portion of it that we were able to share with five. From past experience that the seafood salad has been excellent, I was disappointed in it this time - rather small portion of seafood on it and the crab was not that tasty. Perhaps wrong season to have it. Also seemed unusual from past experience that bread was not served. My guests all enjoyed their meals of salmon entrees and fish and chips."

  • "Just the two of us had a lovely dinner after a long walk in the nearby Marina Park. This was our first visit to Horatio's. A "find". Everyone was very accommodating."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Our reservation was not ready at our requested time. After 15 minutes we requested a table in the bar. After another 10 mins we had a server wait on us. We ordered food and drinks immediately. We received water and waited. Our lobster bisque arrived quickly. After another 10 minutes we had to flag down a different server, as we had not seen ours, to request bread. Still did not get our drinks. We recd our bread about 10 minutes later, then received one martini and our meals. We then requested a side of creamy horseradish, ranch dressing and mayonaise. Did not receive them after 15 minutes. Requested again from a 3rd waiter, and reminded for a glass of cabernet. Finally received after another 10 minutes."

  • "We went for our anniversary dinner. They sat us at a window table which is nice, but the chairs had crumbs on them and asked them to please clean the seats. There were crumbs and food all under the table on the floor and around us. You would think they would clean this up before seating us. We ordered one peppercorn steak medium rare and it came medium well. The filet and lobster came out correct medium rare. The server was nice but we kept looking around for service to refill our waters and get some service. Overall the food is good, service is ok, cleanliness they need to work on. The view is nice if you sit at a window seat."
