My husband and I totally enjoyed our dinneras its been a few years since we last dined there. The food was excellent and our server was beyond awesome. He was engaging and he listened to my husband's questions without seeming to be in a hurry. He even surprised us with a small dessert wishing me a happy birthday tgat I didn't request. AWESOME

Our food came cold for each meal we got. Very disappointed to get a calm chowder that was cold and fish dishes. Our meal was over $200 dollars and we tipped on top. I rather would have gone somewhere else.

I was seated at a large window with a beautiful view of the Bay, got my table promptly and was treated nicely and courteously by a waitress who seem a bit busy but most occasionally attentive. My food was tasty and drink great. I enjoyed my dinner in a quiet but romantic night Valentine’s Day ambience! I would return again!

Our food was fantastic and the service was great. Our server was attentive and well versed on the menu. She was able to point me towards a delicious gluten-free meal and never seemed bothered by my 20 questions to make sure I was getting a safe and GF meal. Thank you for making it easy to safely eat out.
I can't give this review 5 stars because the carpets are so filthy. It's all I can focus on. We came here at the end of last summer to celebrate a birthday and we were really bothered by the deferred maintenance. We made comments about it to ourselves. This time we brought friends with us and it was downright embarrassing that the 1st thing they noticed when walking in was the filthy carpets. It's hard to trust that the food will be good or that the kitchen cares about cleanliness when the carpets in some places are at least an inch deep in black crud.

Great food, service and value! It was a particularly cold evening and the draft from the windows was very noticeable. My wife and I were actually very cold so we cut our dinner short. I would love to see them put in new windows. But overall I love Horatios and will definitely be back!

Came in from Pennsylvania for a job interview. We stayed at The Marina inn right next door. Went for lunch with the new potential employer and liked it so much we went for dinner. Waiter was great and so was the food. Pretty sad that we live so far away cause I'd love to go back!

Old standby. Unfortunately, all the food is fairly heavy; they would do well to add some lighter, simpler fish and meat dishes. The bread pudding was a bit too dry. Service was very good, but the place was not crowded.

Been visiting Horatios and Kincaids for 25+ years...delicious menu options
if you can't decide on a dish, get the seafood special or the safe, yet delicious oven baked chicken dijon!

When I come into a place and see a carpet which hasn't been changed in years -and is filthy- I really wonder how clean the kitchen is. Food, mediocre at best, super expensive, so why would I go back? Service? Excellent, the server was attentive, courteous and just what you'd expect no matter where you go. Ultimately, we go to a restaurant for a great dining experience. Horatio's? Doesn't even meet the minimum in terms of decor, cost and quality of food. Truly disappointing. But who would listen to me? The place was packed so I guess others don't have the same standards that I do.

I expected more. When I spend $120 on dinner I expect to have a top tier experience. What I got was not much better than a trip to Applebees.
I told my server I could not eat dairy and asked for his assistance. I ordered the sole with a calamari appetizer. While I was eating my calamari my server came back to tell me that the sole was breaded with buttermilk so I was forced to order the salmon as it was the ONLY thing on the menu that I could eat. Halfway through my calamari it occurred to me that my squid may be battered in buttermilk too. Turns out they were. Wish I eouldve known before I ate them.
My salmon came. The sides apparently contained dairy because I was brought plain rice and unseasoned grilled asparagus instead of the potatoes and carrots I was expecting. It was thoroughly uninspiring.
To summarize, I couldn't eat my $20 appetizer and my $30 dinner was just plain boring. My server needed a better knowledge of the menu and the menu could use more flexibility.

Educator's special was nice. Ordered prime rib, not as tender as other visits, but still a very good dinner. Starter and dessert were great! (pea salad and key lime pie). Was a little surprised by the add'l charge for increase living wage -- was not aware the bill included this charge until after bill was paid.

It was a busy Saturday night, so you'll have to take this with a grain of salt if you also planning on going on a Saturday night. We waited over an hour (after ordering) for our food. We were a party of 4 women, who didn't order anything adjusted or off the menu, just 4 people, 4 entrees. The food was very good, and the staff were polite, just slow.
