Seriously delightful experience, Joe, our server, was outstanding, so friendly and fun. HRK took all measures to make a birthday celebration truly special. Great food, well priced alcohol. Loved sitting in the cabana.

I really enjoy this place but during my last visit there was a party sitting behind us that were being really loud. None of the staff asked if they could keep it down. I understand you want to have a good time have a drink or two but they were being obnoxious and swearing a lot. If the waiter would of told them to keep it down I believe it would of made a difference and all the guest around them would of had a more enjoyable dinner.

We did not order any entrees ,instead we had various appetizers including the octopus, truffle fries, Thai tacos and best of all the lamb. We also ordered the shaved Brussels sprout salad and a bottle of wine and dessert. Each wonderful, and we would go back again and order different appetizers. The entrees were pretty generic. But did see an amazing looking burger at the next table. Best of all was Eric our waiter and others who bought our food and water. Excellent service! Making reservations again for next month.

Service was excellent, food absolutely delicious - this time I had the roast chicken and it realy was good. The others (3 others) didn't want to do the small plates which I would have preferred so I will just have to come back!

We had another excellent dinner. The scallops and halibut were cooked perfectly as was the hamburger. The wedge salad was really good and very tasty; there was more to it than just lettuce, blue cheese and bacon. The cesar salad was also very good.
The service was top notch and attentive. We really enjoy coming here.

I made reservations 2 months ago for dinner and asked for a patio table. Upon arrival, there seemed to be confusion of an available table and to make matters easy, we agreed to sit inside. Your patio is so much more enjoyable than the dark and cold A/C interior. However, our waiter was top notch, very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious. I ordered the starter lollipop lamb chops. I was a little disappointed that chef said it couldn't become an entree with the addition of a side that I offered to pay extra for. Overall, we had a lovely time and will return... to your patio next time.

Hi Craig! Thank you for your visit. We thank you for your patience during your visit as inside & outside seating is always a topic as we get back into the groove of being busy again! Our appetizers are served tapas style so we hope you had enough to eat during your visit. Next time you book on Open Table, it will allow you to select "outdoor seating" to better fit your needs. We look forward to serving you again soon! Sarah Sotelo General Manager sarah@theheroranchkitchen. c o m

This is the only restaurant I am aware of that offers wine by the bottle at retail $ as a wonderful surprise and delight offering for their customers. What a great way to compliment an already amazing dinning experience.

Everything was a 10 our of 10. The cocktails were interesting and delicious. Loved the appetizers and main courses. Service was amazing! We sat outside along the back wall which I appreciated because it showed the character of the buildings and walkways Great place to celebrate a special occasion - for my daughters birthday they provided complimentary sparking wine and a delicious ice cream dessert with carmel popcorn. Lastly Saratoga is a quiet small village so it just adds a positive ambiance to the entire dinner.

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!!!
