    We had a 5:30 reservation for five people and arrived right on time. We were first ignored by reception and then told someone would take us to our table as soon as he got back. That person came and went two times (on some errand but not seating others) while we waited. There were no other people waiting to be seated. When we were taken to our table we were led to table on an upper level when we had specifically asked for a table by the window. With us was an elderly lady on crutches. When I went back to the desk to complain we were let to a lovely round table by the window. The table was set for six and the place setting was removed but there was no effort to remove the extra chair which wasn't done until we called back the waiter to take it away. All the food ordered was very good. The pea salad was especially good. We chose Horatio's as we had out of town guests staying at the airport Hilton and it was the best choice close by

    I should have read the menu more carefully. I did not realize the crab sandwich was baked. I just do not like hot crab, and it was hard to taste the crab through the spices. The New England clam chowder was also too heavily spiced. I could not taste the clams. My guest ordered the Caesar salad and said it was great. The wine list was quite good. I will definitely return: The ambience was wonderful, Lighting was great and the sound level was pleasant. We were seated promptly at a lovely window table. Our server did an excellent job, The ambience will bring me back. I will be more careful in my menu choices.

    I had visitors from out of town and immediately made reservations for lunch this past weekend. I always appreciate the ample parking and easy access from the freeway. There is always a variety of menu choices from sea food to prime rib sandwiches. I was disappointed that in my online reservation I requested a window table for five but was seated elsewhere even though there was window table available. When I asked about being seated there, I was told it won't accommodate the five people in my party. Once seated, I think the response to obtain your order could improve however, the waitress did return several times to the table once the food was served. I like that we can talk comfortably and enjoy the view of the marina.

    Took a lady friend there for brunch on an NFL Sunday on the recommendation that I find a spot with Mimosa's and a nice view. I'm happy to say that Horatio's was the perfect place of that. Endless Mimosa's, a nice view of the San Leandro Marina + Bay, and tasty food to compliment the experience. 3 of the 4 Mimosa's were available that day and we got to try them and compare our thoughts on them. Good starter menu, with a nice variety for entrees.

    Food was fabulous. I had the sirloin and prawns. The steak was slightly overdone (just ever-so slightly) but it was tender and had a great flavor. I had the clam chowder and it was the best I think I've ever had - at least the best I can remember. The service was excellent. We had a very professional but friendly server, the food was prompt and we so enjoyed the view of the marina. My husband had the scallops which he said were delicious. He had the lobster bisque and loved it!

    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!

    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.

    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.
