We were waiting patiently for our Father’s Day dinner at HRK and it once again, exceeded our expectations. The service was professional, friendly, attentive but also allowed you to enjoy your meal. We started with the octopus and the beet salad - very nice and light starters with cocktails. For dinner we enjoyed the pork chop (juicy), the salmon and the short rib rigatoni. My pre-teen raved about her rigatoni and enjoyed the leftovers for lunch just as much if not more. Dessert - butter cake was just the perfect size, moist and perfect ending to this meal.
Highly recommend this for every day, don’t wait for only a special occasion to go or you’ll be missing out on one of the best places in Saratoga. (I feel the exact same about their sister restaurant Flowers).

Came here for Father's Day dinner. Ambiance was nice. Food was subpar. Wife and I both ordered the Bone-in Ribeye in medium rare. Both steaks were overcooked to well done and too salty. The waitress did tell us to check the steak to make sure. But really, who's gonna send it back to the kitchen to get the "special treatment". We've all seen the movie "Waiting"! Lol.... Ordered my son the braised short rib rigatoni, it tasted fine, but not worth $26! Maybe $12.99 at best. Waitress was a sweetheart, so we still tipped well and left. Probably won't be going back anytime soon.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback as it is our intention to have all of guests leave with a 5 star experience. Please contact me directly as I would like to rectify this situation. If our best interest wasn’t our customers, we would not be in business! The movie waiting does not represent our establishment nor our integrity as a company, as I know you were joking but we do not take it lightly. Thank you!

I dined at the bar and Gabriel was super! This is the only restaurant I know of in the area that is delivering great food and great service post pandemic. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked perfect! I highly recommend the Black Angus filet with truffle. Wow!!!!!!

Great service! Breanna was our server and took excellent care of us as we celebrated a special anniversary. We shared a starter dish of outstanding fried artichokes. My wife loved the scallops and I could not finish the amazing apricot glazed pork chop. Wow it was great including a complimentary dessert sundae that we thought we were too full to finish… but managed to eat every delicious bit. We highly recommend!

HRK has been our favorite restaurant for a while now. Tonight’s servers, headed up by Brianna, were excellent. Briana is a delight. The food as usual was terrific. We love the small plates followed by dessert.

Had an excellent meal (with great service) last night at Hero Ranch Kitchen. We had a early (5pm’) reservation for 6 and were lucky enough to get Jasmine as our waitress. We started with cocktails and recommend the Smoke and Ash and Whiskey Smash highly. No corking fee for our brought bottle which is always nice but don’t miss out on their wine list with no up charge. We also had the HR Pinot and Cab with our meals. Jicama Dumplings (vegan!) were delightful and light. We all shared servings of the Wedge Salad which is robust and big pieces of bacon. Delicious! Next each had a different entree and my Pork Chop was the heartiest and done to perfection. Other were just as pleased with the scallops, flautas, short rib rigatoni and Wagyu filet. Our vegan said the mushroom risotto vegan style was great. Now dessert! You cannot pass up the Chocolate Bomb or Carmel Corn Sundae. Both were a perfect end to a delightful meal with friends. Hugs all around and smiles as we left. Never felt rushed, Jasmine was GREAT!

Great chef. Great menu. Service far below grand cusine level. Ex: long wait at reception. Presentation like a cafe - no simultaniety or flourish. One item missing from order, wait staff did not notice & when mentioned still long delay.

Food was ok: we ordered salads and both commented more dressing/salt would have been good. Pasta was very simple but delicious. We’ll be back.

My new favorite restaurant. My wife, daughter and I went toHero Ranch for our anniversary. When we arrived our table wasn’t ready. No problem, this happens. However, they way the staff handled this was amazing. They apologized for the delay and invited us into the bar for a glass of champagne while we waited. I’ve been fortunate enough to try some amazing restaurants, but can’t remember one that hit on all cylinders like this restaurant. Every staff member we came in contact with was amazing, the food was excellent, and our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about the food and made perfect recommendations for us. It was a perfect experience. Cant wait to go back.
