    This place has been here for years and so glad it continues to stay busy and fresh. Our waiter was delighted to be our server and the food was great as usual. They are flexible on substitutions and we wonder why we do not go more often.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
