    I've been coming here for years and the food has always been good. My last experience however was poor enough to make me rethink if I will ever dine here again. The soup, salad, and crab sandwich were all disappointing. The chocolate cake was the only thing that made me happy as it was delicious. The server was very attentive but was completely ineffective. I've never had a server so - to be honest but brutal - stupid. How she ever got hired is a mystery but I doubt she will last. It's a very pretty setting though so may return and hope for a better meal.

    Horacio’s is a staple of the high end restaurants on the waters of the East Bay. The only thing that varies is the service. The younger servers seem to be given to perfunctory service. Those more experienced are more intuitive and stand out for an ability to treat the customers the way they hope to be treated.

    Great server. Really good bread. The food was very good. The pork chop was good but a little dry. The wagyu was tasty. The scallops were a tad overdone but still delicious. The halibut was a little small but good. The mashed potatoes and veggies were very good. Good cocktails. Way too expensive though. Will be back but not for a while. Super pricey.

    Mother’s Day. We have been to the restaurant several times but this time was disappointing. My fish was dry, the rice was dry and the veggies were minimal. My daughters plate had fruit which was two slices of strawberries and 6 blueberries, with a sliced orange. Her fish was dry as well. For the price of $200 meal for 5 which included two children I expect a higher quality experience.

    Very friendly staff; lots of smiles. Seated promptly. Restaurant was very clean. Tables were nicely spaced apart. Food was excellent and served in a reasonable time. Menu had a good selection of appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts, with a range of prices to fit any budget. Server was very attentive. Would definitely come back.

    What a disappointment. I came here for Mother’s Day brunch. We were seated and it took 15 mins for someone to greet us. We ordered our drinks and those took 20 mins to arrive and they were horrible (signature Mother’s Day Cocktail ) Had to flag a different server down to take our order. We were there for 2hrs and it was not because we wanted to be, the service was just that slow. Food came out Luke warm and tasted just ok. I have been here a few times and normally it’s not that bad. What’s strange is The only reservation time they had available was 12p which I took and it was packed. When we left at 2p the restaurant was only 1/3 full. I don’t get why they would make so many reservations at the same time and then none for later on.

    Pre Mother’s Day. Food good except the vegetables were not blanched long enough. Tasted quite raw. Did not care for sole, sent it back and ordered the Halibut blackened. Very good!

    Adios Horatio. Hostess seated us in bar blaring 100db music, rather than dining room, even though we had reservations and dining room was being served. Waited nearly 10 minutes for server to appear. My wife asked for end cut of ($50.50.) prime rib. Server said he'd check with kitchen, Kitchen confirmed end cut available. When served, prime rib was just a center cut slice reheated on flat griddle accompanied by unremarkable creamed kale. I ordered menu ($46.) grilled halibut with special dressing. When served, halibut was barely 2 ounces, lacked special dressing, was placed on about one tablespoon of rice, and accompanied by burnt vegetables. After food served, no staff ever checked on us. We had to find our server to get our check. After many years we're done with Horatios.

    The service was exceptional but the food was bland and unappetizing. The crab and shrimp fettuccine had very little crab and the shrimp was overcooked. The pork chop was dry and unseasoned. We had hoped the desserts would turn the evening around, however we were even more disappointed by the bread pudding which was flavorless. I had high hopes despite prior reviews but can only share that I will not revisit Horatio.

    all the service was great, our server was very attentive and Horatio's treated our birthday celebrant to a wonderfully delicious Creme brulee. The appetizer I felt was a little pricey at $35.00, the sampler with 3 or 4 items. Otherwise everything was good.

    Brie appetizer was AMAZING! Blue cheese salad, garlic bread, and Dijon crusted chicken were very good. The fish & chips was good, but very greasy. We ordered the molten lava cake for dessert, but it was cold and tasted like chocolate jello - NOT good. Should have gotten key lime pie……..

    Horatio's salmon with shrimp Louie is a five star deliciously decadent and heart healthy masterpiece -- the chef could easily work in a 5 star luxury health spa. The mashed potatoes accompanying the almond crusted scallops is also on the podium of praise. Alan provided service that paired exquisitely with the chef's creative talents. Need we add, anticipation for a return interlude of culinary self indulgence continues to grow.

    Yesterday was Easter, and also our anniversary! The place was PACKED! And no wonder, because the food never disappoints. Our server was up front about the extended wait time for food (45-55 min), but the cocktails and appetizers were served in regular time so nobody was starving. Let me tell you something, THE FOOD IS WORTH THE WAIT!! Having a cocktail and app made the wait not so bad. I'd go back any day of the week. We love Horatio's!
