Service was excellent. Food was good, but not great. My pork chop was a little dry. Nice selection of wines. Bar service was great, but the bar area is very small. I called ahead and noted we were celebrating a birthday, and there was no follow up--no question when we checked in and no special recognition of the event.

There was a problem with a rather noisy group but management was very happy to move us to a quieter room. Our waiter and any staff we had contact with were very professional and kind. Our food was delicious. We couldn’t have asked for a lovelier evening to celebrate my husbands birthday.

Service was super slow but both waiters were very nice and attentive as they could be. It appeared they were under staffed. My dinner was sub par for the type of restaurant. My halibut was way over cooked and had no flavor . Dry and tough versus flaky and flavorful. Risotta also didnt have any flavor. It was the chefs special! Husbands steak was med well, he asked for medium. We paid way too much for quality of meal we received.

Took a business client there for lunch. Service was good, side salad was excellent, but otherwise the meal was sub-par. My client had to send his steak back, way over-cooked. And it was just a small, plain piece of meat for $30. My black bean burger was the worst example of such a thing I've had. At least is was relatively inexpensive.

Excellent food and drink, excellent professional service, a grown-up environment without loud music making conversation impossible and high-back booths that give you the feeling that you are dining alone... everything a first-class restaurant should be.

As usual, the food was exemplary. Our server, Andrew, thought of ways to accommodate my dietary needs; even changing up the dessert so I can have it. We went on a Thursday night so there wasn't a lot of traffic but the ambiance was excellent and the noise level was minimal.

This was a do-over of a less than perfect prior experience. We received a nice gift card from Toni, Hondos Marketing director. Our waiter Stephen was brilliant, the food delicious and prepared perfectly, and the rear dining area was inviting! An overall perfect Hondos night. The dining industry is a tough business but we have come to take Hondos perfection for granted. All is right in the World once again. Thanks to the entire staff for their hard work every day. We will return.

Love this restaurant. This was my first experience seated beside the bar and at lunch time. So maybe that is why noise leaves a little louder, and newer wait staff so maybe not the 5 star I normally experienced. Other than that a great meal as always. Some of my friends where experiencing Hondo’s for the first time and commented how great their meals were.
