Love this restaurant in the heart of Saratoga. Some dishes are a bit pricey but the wines are not even though they are good wines. So glad we were able to get a reservation.

HRK is the place to be on any day of the week. Food is delicious and service is outstanding. You could just order apps and a bottle of wine if you wanted or enjoy the rotating specials and dinner menu. Everything here is worth a try! Make sure to get reservations ahead of time for the weekend as you most likely will be out of luck if you wait till the night before.

We had a couple appetizers, the shrimp, and stuffed mushrooms that were very good and the risotto I’ll have to go back and have again. Service was excellent!

This was our first time dining here and it was such a nice surprise to find this gem not too far from our home. The outdoor dining area was lit up and warm and had a great ambiance for our date night. We loved our appetizers: the fried chicken cornbread skillet and ahi tuna tower. I was also impressed with how warm our entrees stayed while dining outside on a cool night. Service was perfect as well. Paulina was amazing and took great care of us!

We enjoyed a very tasty dinner the other night outside. It was chilly that night, but we had our own gas heater down by our feet. First, we had the sausage stuffed mushrooms, which came out nice and hot, and tasted great! Next we shared a rustic caesar salad, which was excellent, loved the anchovies on it! For my entree, I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly and my husband had the halibut, which he really enjoyed. Our server, Paulina was great, very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend.

This was the first day that they reopened after COVID shutdown measures were relaxed. This is my favorite restaurant in the south bay. Food is so good and consistent. Service is really good and the staff is so personable. Can't think of a negative word at all or any other of the 15-20 times we have been there in the past.

Not being near a heater made the experience a little cold and uncomfortable. The food was very tasty and our server, Breanna, was wonderful and did her best to accommodate.

Hi there! Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, we did get a visit from the Fire Marshall earlier this week in which made us remove about 15 heaters due to them being to close to the buildings. We apologize, but are glad that your food made up for it. :) Sarah Sotelo General Manager

We were out-celebrating our anniversary-and with Covid being at it’s peak-we could not have chosen or experienced a more enjoyable evening -thanks to Hero’s Ranch ambiance- friendly service-excellent tasting food-with respectable value. Have dined here prior to our special evening and will not hesitate to dine again-keep-up the good work-we appreciate what you are doing and sacrificing during this pandemic.
