Except for my steak being overcooked the meal was fantastic. Nice place and service was excellent.
A+++ Service, food/presentation, ambiance
I took my date to dinner and she was so impressed with the food and the service. She told me that I had good taste.
Thanks to Hondos
Service was poor and some of the food came cold.
EXCELLENT as ALWAYS!!
Hondo's never disappoints! The food is excellent and the service is always good. It was the first time my friend had been there and absolutely loved it. That means a lot to me. Our lunch was delicious and the server was very attentive. They even served us something that we wanted that was not on the lunch menu because they had the ingredients to prepare it. We'll be back!
Hondos is our go to restaurant for special occasions. It is pricey, but well worth it. The food is wonderful and the service is impeccable!
The food was excellent! Our server, Ethan, was stellar! Made our celebration even better!
We have, for years, enjoyed Hondos. As a rule it is a little pricey for our budget but we have so appreciated 2 for 1 specials on birthdays and anniversaries and special days.
We did enjoy the New Year's Eve buffet and felt it to be a very good value.
Beautiful ambiance but disappointed with the food on this visit. We have enjoyed great meals in the past, so we will return in the hopes that this was a one off.
Best place ever, quiet, low lighting and excellent service!!
If I’m going to pay over $100 for two people to dine, I expect that my steak is cooked to perfection. With that said, mistakes happen. Unfortunately, my steak was too raw and when I sent it back, they burned it. I wish the restaurant had offered free dessert or at least had taken money off the meal. By the time I got my burnt steak back, my boyfriend was nearly finished with his meal. I will not be returning.
My FIRST visit restaurant was not THAT crowded in dining room (BAR ACTUALLY WAS MAXED OUT WITH DINERS) so we were surprised in the SLOW SERVICE. Several entrees were returned because they did not meet our requests and those entrees weren't returned to the table until most of us had finished eating. Our reservations were for 7 pm, we were all there on time, and we left the restaurant around 10:15 or 10:30 --- most of that time was spent waiting for our food. PRIOR TO THIS RESERVATION I HAD HEAR NOTHING BUT RAVE REVIEWS FOR HONDOS ---- DO NOT PLAN ON RETURNING AND DO NOT PLAN ON RECOMMENDING ANY OF OUR FRIENDS OR FAMILY TO DINE THERE!
Just OK, but kind of a disappointment for our anniversary dinner. Our waiter seemed less than thrilled to be there. The steak was pretty good. But the salad was fine and my baked potato had been cooked hours earlier. Small filets and average house salad, just ok potatoes, 2 drinks for $140 before tip.
Ahi app and porterhouse were fantastic. My wife raved about her fillet. We look forward to going back.
The cuisine is outstanding, and the service is excellent - efficient, courteous, knowledgeable and professional.
First class fine dining restaurant. Every single detail was perfect. Highly recommend!
Average service, waiters and manager not working the room.
Steak was well-cooked but quality of meat was poor.
The food was good, but I would expect better for the price. The service was excellent.
There on a very busy day before Christmas with clients for a business lunch. Waiter was excellent and food was good but wait for food was very long (waiter was extremely apologetic) . There were several large parties there and it didn't seem like the kitchen could keep up. Noise level was extremely high. I have eaten here before with clients not during holiday rush and had a much better experience.
With my budget, Hondos is a restaurant usually reserved for special occasions. I love their filets! However, I met some friends for lunch and they have a special lunch menu with featured meals under $10. I was pleasantly surprised by the choices (mahi mahi blt, steak wrap, shrimp and grits) for under $10. Generous portions. I will not be reserving Hondos for just for special occasions anymore!
The best meal I have had in a while. Appetizers, Ahi Tuna and Raw Oysters were exceptional. Table of Four, we had the NY Strip, Filet, Rib Eye and Flounder Special, All were really great. Nice surprise with the Sunday night wine discount. I highly recommend Hondos, I will definitely be back!!!
Hondos food is always great. The Christmas parties made the noise level louder than normal.
This was my first visit and everything was exceptional.
Food and service was phenomenal! This is one of my favorite restaurants and never disappoints!
As always the the food was outstanding and the service impeccable.
The lunch menu is great. Hard to decide between the available options. Both our meals were very good. Service was good.
We were pleasantly surprised to find this gem in Glen Alle. I actually work nearby and I had no idea it was there! The noise level was a little higher because of holiday parties but otherwise seems like a great place to have a date or special occasion. Prices are on the higher end (as expected), but what you get for the money is fantastic! Most of their entrees (at least the steak we ordered) came with a side and a choice of side salad. Almost any other high-quality steak restaurant would charge extra per side. The wine and service were also great. We look forward to having another date night at Hondos!
We had a great waiter. The food was very good and the ambiance was great.
Excellent service and venue. Steaks were cooked to perfection! I would highly recommend.
We went to Hondo’s to celebrate my birthday and my father-in-Law’s birthday. We have dined at Hondo’s numerous times and have found the service and food impeccable. This time, however, the service was terrible. We sat for about 20 minutes (conservatively) before our waiter ever came over. When he did, he filled our water glasses with barely a word (even my father-in-law’s after my father-in-law told him he did not want any), plunked down his card, and abruptly left. He did not introduce himself (we read the card and discovered his name is John), nor did he ask if we wanted anything else to drink. About 20 more minutes went by before he finally returned and took our appetizer order. He almost left again but we quickly stopped him and gave him our drink order. He took a long time with the drink order (two sweet teas, a coffee, and a soda). His service was so inadequate that we STILL had not placed our dinner order when the appetizers arrived. We had to stop him and tell him we were ready to place our dinner order. I had to ask him to remove the wine glasses because he never did so and we needed the space. We had to ask for bread, which again, took an extraordinarily long time to receive. He was abrupt and not the least bit welcoming. As we were eating, the next table over apparently told him that their steaks were not cooked properly. He argued with them at length before getting the manager. The whole situation was absolutely ridiculous. As I mentioned, we have dined here many times and found the service to be wonderful. Unfortunately, we will now be taking our business elsewhere. When you go out for a nice meal at a higher end restaurant, especially for a special occasion, you expect the wait staff to hold themselves to a gold star standard. If we risk such lackluster service, it makes no sense to return.
Reservations made, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The staff was exceptionally polite, and the food was delicious.
What a great evening. The staff was great. The food delicious. A little pricey, but the atmosphere and staff made up for it. It was a perfect place to have a business dinner. Highly recommend!
Hondos is consistently in my top five Richmond area restaurants. The experience is always excellent. Two of us had prime rib, one had the bone-in filet and the other enjoyed the chicken dish. All four meals were cooked to the exact temperature as ordered. The meal was served at a relaxed pace and every element of our experience was ideal.
The four of us had a lovely meal. The food was prepared to our specifications and presented nicely. John, our waiter was helpful and attentive. We hope to come back!
Our waiter, Rawls, was very attentive and professional. My steak was grilled exactly as I like it and was an excellent cut. It was the perfect evening for our anniversary.
Still one of the best West End restaurants Richmond has to offer. Steaks are of the highest quality available.
Stephen helped us and was great.
I ordered the steak au poivre, something I order frequently at steakhouses. My steak was over cooked, they took it back and by the time they brought me the new one, everyone else had finished their dinner. The au poivre seasoning was inedible. I had 3 bites and that was it.
Appetizer was cold.For the price was not
anything special steak was average.Thought over priced.
