Hector's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Celebrated birthday brunch here - cute little space in downtown Kirkland. Food was timely and delicious. We shared the weekend cinnamon roll. It was not a typical cinnamon roll texture, it was almost croissant like, but still tasty. I order the NOLA scramble and it was yummy and well-seasoned. My fiance had the biscuits and gravy and we were huge fans of the gravy. Even though it was a sit down restaurant, the service was quick, in and out within 45 minutes.
Hector's is a great spot for weekend breakfast. The eggs benedict and two-two-two are favorites. After being seated, with a 9AM reservation, no server visited our table for a good 6 minutes. I finally asked if there was a server available and the hostess got us some service. Michaela, our server, was courteous and polite but appeared to have to many tables. Maybe the shifts for additional staff doesn't start until after 9AM on Sundays. Still would recommend for breakfast!!!
Went for my brother's birthday breakfast. Lots of good breakfast choices, we had an omlette, a couple scrambles and huevos rancheros. The waitress was friendly and never made us feel rushed even though they were busy and we stayed to have an extra cup of coffee while we visited. A very comfortable place, with parking - a plus!
We went to Hector's on Saturday with a 7:30 reservation, but arrived around 7pm. We waited at the hostess stand for 10 minutes before a bus-boy finally came and asked us if we were just 2. I replied that we had a reservation, and then he ran off to the back to find someone else to help us. Five minutes later we got seated by a woman who said it was no problem to seat us early.
We were then ignored by every employee in the restaurant - we watched tables who were sat after us get service while no one even made eye contact with us. After a total of 25 minutes from walking in the door, we got up and left. We ended up at Bull and Bottle across the street and it was a great decision, we'll definitely be going back there.
To top it all off, Hector's informed OpenTable that we were a no-show for our reservation. Sorry, Hectors, but *you* were the no-show.
Avoid this restaurant at all costs. Milagro next door and Bull and Bottle across the street are far superior options in the same price point.
Very disappointing When we suggested that they should have told us that their enormous ice-cream sundae was way too large for 1 person, the waiter countered that it wasn't too much for him. The romaine in the caesar was limp and the dressing was skimpy. The roll used for the French dip was stale. And they no longer serve the meatloaf they used to be known for.
First time using Open Table. Arrived at Hectors and they had my name. Let me be seated before my friend joined me which I appreciated.
Cinnamon roll (only available on weekends) was delicious. They split the entree for my friend and I.
Food and service were good.
Would go back and would use Open Table again.
First of all, we had a 12:00 reservation and were not seated until after 12:20. The hostess didn't seem to know what she was doing and never apologized for the delay. Our waitress as well took her time getting to our table, and after ordering, our food took forever to arrive. When it came we noticed that my daughter's meal (bitterness noodles) was an incredibly small portion, you could see the bottom of the plate. Now let me say that my kids are not big eaters and even this was too small amount for her, especially for $7 which includes nothing else! My meal was dry and I flavorful, and my husband had the same to say of his crab Benedict. We've eaten here before and had great service and no problem with the food, but we will not be going back.
Hector's was pretty good, the chopped salad I had was a little heavy on the lettuce which I couldn't even come close to finishing. Others in my group had less healthy options which honestly looked a lot better to me.
I'd go back but stick to the "carby" side of the menu.
Not impressed - won't be returning
Fairly limited menu Service was very very slow, took 15 mins just to get our server to ask about beverages, another 15 to actually get them.
Food delivery was better, but that was served by a different person.
One item - a salad was requested to have an alternate dressing, it did not. No attempt was made to correct
Other food items were ok at best.
Food is very good at Hector's. Problem with the restaurant is service. Maybe it is a kitchen problem. Last two times dining at this restaurant has resulted in two foul ups. First I received the wrong order. I decided to take it, and it was very good, but was not what I ordered. On this occasion the main orders came and then they tried to bring the salads afterwards. We declined them. As stated, the food is good, and management in both instances was very gracious about the mistakes. But this is no way to run a restaurant.
Great food and nice servers, Herbert we were there on a Sunday are 1:00 and Iin a sunny day and it was packed so the service was very slow and the noise level was deafening with crying babies (no one's fault of course) and people taking over each other. Couldn't wait to leave. I would go back but but not on such s busy day.
The short ribs would have been delish if there had not been so much salt! The server said she would address the issue with the manager and did not get back to us, just handed us the bill. I was disappointed. As a former server, one should not make a statement about possibly taking the item off the bill then not do it or give any explanation. The house wine was not enjoyable. The calamari was eatable, nothing special. The atmosphere (we were there at 5pm) was enjoyable.
Very tasty, well prepared comfort-style food, at Kirkland bistro prices. They made me very welcome as I waited for the rest of my party, only half of whom showed up. The others could not find parking, alas; I understand this an issue in Kirkland. Our food was perfectly prepared and ready very quickly.
We had tried Hector's for Happy Hour a few months ago and weren't overwhelmed, but we thought we'd try their breakfast - and that was a better experience. The food was very good, well prepared with some original options. The coffee was full-bodied and tasty. We tried their Farmer's Omelet (egg whites, spinach, mushrooms, chevre) and the Runner's Special (2 eggs, cottage cheese, grapefruit, toast) - what looked like the healthiest items on their list. We'd order both again. Hector's is also in a great downtown Kirkland location across from the lake. All in all, a good place to meet for breakfast or brunch on the Eastside.
