Terribly long wait for food, and the kids' pancakes tastes like they were under a heat lamp for way too long. Couldn't keep my water glass full... will not be back any time soon.

We ate outside at Hectors because we had our dog with us. They say they have a dog friendly patio, but it's up the back near the rubbish bins and the rear of the kitchen, not ideal. They have a whole sunny patio but don't allow dogs there, so there are only a couple of designated dog friendly tables, what's the point!

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.

Great table and server. Food was tasty, but the kitchen was behind. Waited 40 minutes for the appetizer and the main course arrived two minutes later. Sat outside on a great evening.

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.

We reserve a table at Hectors every year for Mother's Day. This year wasn't our favorite. An order was wrong and they tried to deliver someone else's order. We had to track the waitress to pay our bill. I think they're understaffed on the patio.

Went for happy hour with friends. The Mac and cheese is my new favorite thing. I'm still thinking about it. I also enjoyed my almost midnight cocktail. Really enjoyed it. Can't wait to go back.

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.

We visited in early Dec '16 and their parking lot is being torn up for new construction. Paid parking was available in the adjacent building but street parking is non-existent mid-week at lunch time. I was disappointed that Open Table had not been notified that there would be no parking available. The convenience of the back lot is one of the reasons we chose Hector's in the first place. Be cautious during the next 6 months as construction will periodically make parking nearly impossible. We did enjoy our lunch once we were able to both get there. The food was up to its usual quality and the service was good. Our waitress agreed with us that the parking situation is not acceptable. Surly jobsite foreman didn't help matters outside either.
