HONDO'S is still "the place to go" for steak in the Westend. From steak to fish everything is done to perfection.

Best brunch buffet I have ever been to. There was ample food selection. The prime rib was wonderful. I also enjoyed the omelet station and chocolate fountain. The service was good. They promptly kept your water filled and took away your empty plates quickly. The price was only $25 which I thought was a real value considering the quality and amount of food you could get. The prime rib alone was worth the money.

Have eaten here typically for lunch and it was fine. But took my boss and his boss there for a business dinner and was extremely disappointed and I was sick the following day. The gentlemen both ordered the rock fish, neither was cooked enough and one of the gentlemen couldn't even eat his. I had the seafood trio, it was not good. The Pesto Scallops were warm and not even seared. The Parmesan shrimp had more cheese than shrimp and it wasn't very hot and the shrimp tasted off. The lump crab cake was more like a blob of crab salad, no searing, not very warm and not much lump crab. I was not aware that my boss complained about his meal, until dinner was over. I was sick the next day and had to leave work.

I do have to say that Brian was a very good server, he was attentive but not overly. Kept our water glasses full and made nice suggestions on the wine.

Was really disappointed with the meal, especially since I suggested the restaurant to my boss. None of us will be going back.

Hondo’s always had a “Wow” factor for me but the last few times it was good, even special but not “Wow.” Saturday night the “Wow” was back. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Great steaks and prime rib and excellent crab cake. We split 2 deserts and they were also very good (pecan pie and key lime pie).

Special occasion was a birthday. We had heard good things about the Brunch and it did not disappoint. So many choices & variety that we couldn’t try everything. The champagne was elegant for breakfast & the fruits were so fresh. Wish I could have tried the eggs Hondos and frittata, will save those for next time. A little on the pricey side so needs to be saved for special occasions. Our server, Jennifer, was spot on, attentive but not intrusive.

We had a small family birthday dinner! The waitress was excellent! She checked in occasionally and when necessary, but she didn't interrupt our celebration. The table was over in a corner- away from several business men's dinner tables. A manager checked on us as well! The food was excellent! Steaks and two types of seafood were cooked perfectly.

I was in Richmond on business, and I found Hondos through a little internet searching. My colleague, and I enjoyed our meal there so much, we went twice in one week. The food is exceptional, the wine is delicious, and the service is outstanding. I highly recommend Hondos for business dinners, celebrations, or if you just want an awesome meal with great service.

I have stayed in Richmond many times for business and have always wanted to try this restaurant but never had the opportunity. We came up to Richmond for a funeral and stayed at the Hyatt Place right by the restaurant (you can walk to the restaurant from the hotel) When you walk into the restaurant the ambience is just wonderful from the lighting to the furniture - just wonderful. The table is set when you sit down, the server we had was absolutely wonderful and the food was unbelievable. I have been to many Steak Houses throughout the United States and I have to say this was one of the best I have ever been to from the service to the food. It is a pricey restaurant but worth every penny. The four of us they went to this Restaurant and all felt the same way - we had the best time there and will definitely visit the next time we are in Richmond

It's really too bad their kitchen can't coordinate cooking meals, so that all food comes out hot at the same time. This seems to be a chronic occurrence...as this is the third time within six weeks they have served lukewarm entrees. Probably not worth giving them "a fourth time at bat".

HONDO'S is the best steakhouse in the West End of Richmond. (INNSBROOK).
Anything on the menu is way above average and you won't be disappointed.

This was a business meal to celebrate an important milestone that one of our business partners had met and we wanted a special evening. We got it. The service was outstanding, very knowledgeable and attentive with good suggestions for pairings and appetizers. I also like that the server leave s a name card on the table. The food was incredible, steaks cooked just right and seafood that seemed like it just came off the boat. The deserts were tasty and just the right size. This place is pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

The food was just okay, really nothing special. The buffet dishes were very overcooked - you could hear the fish dish sizzling in the chafing dish. There were very few patrons but the service was so-so. We’ve been many times over the years, but won’t return for brunch here.

Excellent service but the food was not up to par, which is not our usual experience at Hondos. The filets were cooked to the right temp in their centers but overcooked on the sides. Also the steaks were pretty flavorless and dry. The Caesar dressing had a bland, watery flavor. The sauteed vegetables were plentiful however they were mandolin sliced paper thin, making for a side of mush. And the sweet potato was undercooked. Also the vintage of the Cabernet wine was represented on the menu as a 2013. When the waiter brought the wine bottle to the table, I noticed it was a 2014. He had not noticed that but went back to see what was up, and came back to the table to tell me they had run out of that and had just gotten in the 2014. The wine vintage was changed but of course the price of the bottle was not. Used to love this place. Perhaps the 'good chef' was off since it was the day after Valentines. Chances are good we won't be going back.

Our waiter offered just the right touch of polite charm without being obsequious. Our only complain was the amount of time it took to be served our lunches. We waited 45 minutes for our meals, an unusually long wait for Hondo's at lunch time and the delay was never acknowledged nor did anyone apologize. One of our party almost had to bail but lunch arrived just as she was preparing to leave. Lunch was delicious as usual.
