Food quality doesn’t seem as good as in the past. This used to be my go to local restaurant that I enjoyed. The interior is dated and could use some updating and cleaning.

The bathroom/Kitchen area always smells, this and overall cleanliness is my only complaint about the place, ever. Food and Service are always great.

The food is great... there were issues that I spoke with the General Manager about - dirty dishes we had to return twice, dirty glasses...not typical of a nice restaurant. Also, the food is good, but the place needs some upgrading...seats are fraying/cracked at our table. I'd try it again...because the food was great...and the General manager was very responsive in addressing my complaints.

Had a real foul funky smell when we walked in. Sloppy inattentive service the whole meal. Had to send back cold congealed French onion soup.

I love this restaurant in the pass but feel it’s over priced for the food. Recently I came here with my husband for a valentines date ,Service was excellent but the food was not so great.My husband and I both agreed that we can get better less expensive dinner elsewhere.

LeAnn is our very favorite server. She assures that everything is perfect. For us it’s our favorite. ❤️

They didn't have my reservation so we waited about 20 minutes. The silverware and flatware for the place settings were dirty.

Was looking forward to the Prime Rib but was disappointed. We asked for medium but it came pink (thought it would be gray with some pink inside). It was salty (more than we liked) and it was hard to cut. Years ago we had Prime Rib and it was excellent. We had the filet there a few weeks before and it was excellent.

The place was busy! Service was very good. Food was 'bleh', especially for the price. Ambiance was good overall, but we were seated at a table on the intersection of two major foot traffic corridors which didn't provide a good atmosphere for dinner conversation.

Always a great place to enjoy dining with the family. Awesome deals on appetizers during happy hour.

Hair in food
Burger completely raw (blood raw)
Wedge salad you can barely see the toppings. It was a plate of just lettuce. Water no lemon, no tablecloth (other tables had table clothes)

It was a very bad night for Horatios not sure I will ever make it in their again!

4 star prices, but you’ll get 2 star food.

Horatio's staff is always friendly, attentive and welcoming. Since we have been going there for a very long time we know a lot of the staff. We are always made to feel special. Even if they are not waiting our table if they see us they stop and say hello.

The food is always wonderful and presentation is top notch.

I went to Horatio’s for my Valentines Day dinner. The ambiance was excellent as usual and the service was very good. I loved the Point Reyes salad, but I didn’t like the breaded sole because it had too much breading and the fish didn’t taste fresh. This was a one off for me since I usually love the food at Horatio’s. I will return to the restaurant, but I won’t order the sole.

Pluses: Above average food and dinning experience. Wonderfull ambiance, above average friendly service. Attentive, accommodating, and all with a sincere smile.

Negatives: The portions are small for it's pricing. Does the ambiance justify the higher pricing? No, but add it the great tasting menue, and it is eadier to swallow.
The on-line reservationing is convenient, but didn't have enough available seating slots available, even though when seated, there were several tables vacancies, and we were held waiting 25 minutes for our reservation time. A couple came in right after us without reservations, they were told seating only with reservations, they went on-line right there, and got a reservation time 15 minutes ahead of us, and was seated ahead of us. Disturbing!

Our most negative experience, was on the bill. We were suprised by a Restaurant imposed TAX! That's right, the businesses own imposed tax! So on the bill, there was two taxes, theirs and the state's. Their tax is subsidized employee wage, that (they said) keeps the restaurant owners from raising the food prices to pay their employees a living wage.
For two people, the bill came to $149, and we tipped about 18% ($25).
Out of fairness, They did say, they would remove it, if I requested. I left it, and took it out of her tip. She would have got 20%.

They said that the employees get the tax, via increased wage. Well I hope so, for her sake. I viewed it as double tipping.
Next time, I will request it removed.

If I wasn't attentive, I would have overlooked it. Disturbing!

Appetizers (Calamari) was the worst we've ever had, way over cooked, first time in the last four visits that this has happened, blaming this failure on "Valentines Day" dining, seamed like staff was rushed, and over stressed.

Had went here for my anniversary, loved the decor of the interior and exterior. The staff was so friendly and was very helpful. The food was very delicious! We would definitely return whenever we are in town!!

The food is great! However, it seems that the prices just keep on going up. Not a place to go to regularly! Just special occasions!

Service was very very very slow. Over 1/2 hour to take our order. Then food came warm. The crab sandwich couldn’t even be cut up with a steak knife. We were very disappointed.

Very nice after theater preValentine's Day dinner treat. The food was fresh, delicious, and perfectly prepared. The food presentation was very nice. Our waiter, Chad, was very friendly and so courteous and helpful. With the marina and their huge windows there was plenty of natural light. Not overpriced.
