Visiting my Mom in Saratoga, we do a nice dinner out... So glad we chose THRK!!! Joe was a helpful, kind, terrific waiter. Food and drinks arrived quickly... empty plates were removed promptly... most importantly, every bite was delicious! We felt appreciated as diners and we so appreciated all that staff did to make it a wonderful experience. Will make a point of returning next trip!!!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Hero Ranch Kitchen . We were greeted with 2 glasses of Champaign to start off our celebration . We had ahi tuna tower and crab cakes as appetizer which were delicious . I had halibut for main dish and my husband had the steak fillet . Service was amazing and so is the food . We had nice table for 2 with some green leaves on the wall, candle. Very cozy snd romantic . For dessert we got ice cream with a candle and delicious butter cake .

My husband, my dog and i love The Hero Ranch place very much. Amazing cocktails ( both taste and presentation) food quality, ambiance and service quality is outstanding!.. They are extremely friendly with my dog. The only thing is it’s very difficult to get in between 6:00-7:30pm on Fridays or Saturdays since it’s booked up in advance. Tuna tartar, The halibut and The Best butter cake are my absolute favorites!!!

Hero Ranch is an outstanding dining experience. We look forward to returning. We shared the crispy sushi bites, wagu beef, wedge salad, and crab cakes. For cocktails, we had the Whiskey Smash. We had the cobbler for dessert. The only thing that didn’t wow us were the crab cakes.

Our favorite go-to restaurant before Covid, during Covid and without a doubt after Covid! Staff are all absolutely incredible with special shout-outs to Sara, Thomas and Alex. Always make us feel special, cared for and genuinely happy. The menu is always outstanding and the wine list cannot be matched price-wise. 1,000% recommend this wonderful piece of Heaven in Saratoga village.

This was my husband’s birthday dinner which I had noted in the reservation. Our table was right along the walkway, our heater was set at a lower level than all the others and even though we requested it be turned up nothing ever happened. We ordered a round of drinks but our water glasses and drink glasses sat empty and we never saw our server after our food was delivered. We skipped ordering dessert being we were both freezing. and obviously our server made no mention of the birthday. This is a one and done on the restaurant rotation for us. We will stick to plumed horse when dining in Saratoga.

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.
