Girls lunch was very good. Food was good, and one ordered a salad with fruit and other ordered beef Bourgogne. The coffee was really good, too. Ashton was a very good server.

Great outdoor experience for early business dinner at 5 pm. Table location/spacing and seating following COVID restrictions - with server wearing face mask. Food was all prepared very well and certainly meeting/exceeding expectations. Oyster app terrific, caeser salad prepared as ordered (no croutons, yes to anchovies), steak perfectly prepared (NY Strip MR with veggie side). Service well well paced - with touchpoint visits to table vey appropriate and timely. Having a shade installed outside (west facing - sunset) was a great addition to this location to prevent being blinded during this time in the late afternoon.

Brunch was wonderful, our server Ashton was great. Food was delicious. Bloody Marys were very good as well. All the staff at Hondos was very friendly and accommodating.
They are doing an amazing job in a difficult time in the restaurant industry. So happy they are still open

It was my first time. The steak frites wasn’t not cooked medium rare as I requested. It was overdone, but it had good flavor and I ate it. I never mentioned to my waiter the steak wasn’t cooked to the right temperature. The service and ambience was excellent.

We've been to Hondo's many times, but this last time was sub par. The food was different and not in a good way. The seafood bisque was chunky and thick like they put way too much flour in the roux. It was also luke warm when served. Our server seemed new and inexperienced. He may have tried his best, but didn't clear plates, bring refreshed drinks when expected. My son ordered the salmon and it was by far the worst salmon dish we've ordered anywhere. I can't imagine anyone truly enjoying that dish. It wasn't seasoned properly and the raspberry wine sauce was bitter and poorly paired in my opinion. Overall, a very poor experience when paying $300 for a dinner for two adults and two children.

Husband’s birthday! Ashton did a great job servicing us, and celebrating our occasion with a delicious birthday cupcake! Tony Peebles provided excellent customer service assisting with a lost gift certificate and signing us up with the Rewards program. A big THANK YOU to them both!

The Hondo experience is always the best! I wish I could have this feeling about every restaurant experience. I would call it pure litt-ness (as the younger age group would say ...lol )Big ups you the Chef(s) and my apologies for asking for A1 sauce...

I ordered the Sunday dinner special, which includes a choice of the soup of the day or a caesar or house salad, 2 tenderloin medallions and a petite lobster tail, and a choice of the chocolate torte or key lime pie for dessert. The house salad came with a very good basil and pesto dressing, and warm bread and butter were served immediately prior to the salad. The medallions and lobster (with butter) were small, as advertised, but excellent. The chocolate torte with whipped cream was also excellent. I thought that the meal provided very good value, and Michael, my server, was very attentive.

Great wait staff and management. One of the best meals of my life! perfect evening. The only thing I would ask is that due to the modified table placement due to COVID-19, perhaps center the tables directly under a light. I was well lighted but I could not see my wife too well across the table!

A mixed bag. As we knew, Hondo’s is extremely expensive, so our expectations were high. The cocktails were very good. The bread and flavored butter were delicious. My companion had steak, medium rare, but overcooked, so they prepared another for him. The second one was perfect and he was very happy with it. I had the golden bass which was crispy on the outside, but over-cooked and without taste. The waiter, who was rather hard to find, did not ask how our food was. I had asked him whether to have the stuffed shrimp or the bass and he offered no suggestion, except that the bass had lump crabmeat on top. My other companion loved his steak. The side dishes were very good! One in our group was celebrating his birthday and they wrote “Happy Birthday” in chocolate on his dessert plate (but didn’t comp his dessert.) It’s too bad, because the key lime pie was grainy and mediocre. Hondo’s is known as a steak house, so it’s best to stick to steaks, I suppose. The outdoor setting with heaters is comfortable.
