We had a great time and a great meal at Horatio’s. My filet was perfectly cooked and the potato cakes and seasonal veggies that came with it were delicious. It was a bit pricey but worth it. We will be back!

Unfortunately this is not a restaurant I would frequent. Location is excellent but the restaurant needs a major remodel. It smells like an old shipyard with old sticky wooden tables. The food is like diner food with heavy layered food that looks and tastes as if it’s been there for long time. The waitress was sweet but once again gave the vibe of an old dinner. It is not a place i would recommend. I’m not from the area and it seems like it’s hard to find good places to eat. Options are scarce as we realized in last few days!! Unlike San Francisco area, where there is more options. This restaurant needs to come get out of the 70’s and shake things up. At least, take away the old shipyard smell with nauseating odor as you walk into the restaurant. They even made the worse cup of coffee. The water smelled and the coffee tasted like it was made with old water. We didn’t complain, smiled and thank them and left. But to be honest, a 3 Star is too much. Had I known, I would not have driven 15 mins to get to this restaurant.
You will be disappointed.

We went to Horatio’s for lunch to celebrate a birthday. All five of us ordered the open faced sandwich combo. Two ordered the whole sandwich and other three the half sandwich lunch combo.

The sides that came with the combo lunch was very good however the entree or sandwich was disappointing as it was room temperature. This made the sandwich hard to cut. Very disappointing.

I’ve had the open faced crab sandwich in the past and when it came to the table the sandwich was still warm. Now I wonder if because five of us ordered the same sandwich sat on the plate too long?

Service was slow and food was just ok. The decor is very old. The couple sitting next to us got up and left before they even ordered. My husbands entree was more like an appetizer. I had the prime rib and it was just ok. It came with mashed potatoes and vegetables but I couldn’t tell what the vegetables were so I was afraid to eat them.

Took the family on Fri 10/5 for my son's 25th birthday (his request). We arrived as the sun was setting which made for a wonderful bay view. He thoroughly enjoyed his 16 oz. Prime Rib, my wife had the salmon w/ gnocchi, my daughter the Mushroom w/ Short Rib and I had the Pork Chop. All were delicious and served promptly by our friendly server, Victor, who periodically stopped by to check in on us. He also brought a complimentary Burnt Crème dessert for my son's birthday, that we all shared. Took home a lot of leftovers which we enjoyed last night. Horatio's always seems to be out go-to place for special occasions!

I had the Wagyu filet and it wasn't as good as the first time I had it at Horatio's a few weeks ago. The taste of the meat was very different and the onion cakes were mushy versus crispy. Shame the food wasn't more consistent.

What a wonderful way to celebrate our 21st anniversary!! Delicious food, outstanding service and a beautiful view. You MUST try the clam chowder....it's better than any we have had anywhere in the Bay Area. Add the warm buttery bread and a delicious cocktail to start! I had the filet and my hubby had the lobster tails...both were perfect! The roasted vegetables are SO good.....and our server Gio was awesome. He answered all our questions and anticipated any refills, etc that we needed. Will make sure to ask for him next time we visit. We also were treated to a delicious peach cobbler for dessert....we were so full, but found a way to make it disappear! Thank you Horatio's for a memorable anniversary!

Service was great! I really liked the crab and artichoke dip and the bread as well. Although my entree had a strand of hair in it. The chef made a new and delivered it himself and apologized, which I appreciated. Otherwise food was good.

I hadn't been there in about a year. Very satisfied with the dinner. I had the prime rib and my guest had the Louis Salad. Both were very tasty and are recommended. Service was OK. I booked ahead and requested window seating but did not get it. Ended up in the back area. Our server was adequate. We were not offered water after we were seated and there weren't timely visits to check on our satisfaction. The redemption here was that it was a birthday celebration and we received a complimentary dessert. Overall , the meal was very good and I will return, just not with high expectations on the service side. Cheers!

I have been here before, so know what to expect. Had a lunch combo with the crab-artichoke.. my only criticism is that the bread was pretty chewy vs. crispy or soft, so cutting it was a bit of a challenge. Great value on the food however, the combo included half the sandwich, a generous portion of Broadway pea salad, and fries (almost too much food). Service was good, not great.. one of my friends needed a refill on a Coke and it took some minor harassing of servers walking by to get it taken care of. But server was very friendly, polite, etc. But all and all, a good experience at Horatio's.

Service was good; waitress attentive and the food was tasty and enjoyable. But, I was quite disappointed on the exterior of the building. It look quite dirty with gum marks on floor; not a good impression at all. Also had to alert one of the greeters that a water spill on floor near bar and seating needed to be taken care of in case of someone slipping on it. It has been awhile since we dined at Horatio since we just returned to CA. and am hoping there will be a facelift so it will shine brightly as we remembered it in time past.

Great menu options, really like the 1/2 combos. I've ordered the crab sandwich many times previously and it's always been good. This time there was a meniscal amount of crab a few chunks of artichoke with the tomato and cheese, very disappointing. Waitress laughed when we told her, then said she would tell the chef. Later she brought us a free dessert (without asking us if we wanted it). Just not the experience we had in the past.
