Have been to Hondos for many occasions. This family dinner was as nice an experience as always. Friendly, professional staff. Food and service were excellent. Ambiance was quiet and comfortable for well paced dining and conversation.

We always look forward to a special dinner at Hondos. This evening was somewhat disappointing. The service was good and our waiter was friendly. Two of us ordered med rare but it was more rare. One steak was sent back and still wasn’t cooked properly. The quality of the steak in general was questionable. The Hondos potatoes were sold out and the garlic mashers weren’t great. The birthday cupcake was dry and tasteless. We understand that staffing is a struggle right now and we appreciate that Hondos has survived the trying last year. We will return and hopefully the experience will improve.

Appetizers were ok nothing special. Steaks one star at best. Sides ranged from one - two stars at beat. Desserts were outstanding five stars. Service was outstanding five stars. $250 for two with no drinks except water - never again!

It was So-So …

At first, our server was a bit brash with us. She did not ask if we had any allergies, and when we ordered our special she was like all that, and was not pleased with what we chose for dinner it seemed like. (The special we had was 23 ounce filet tenderloins, with a small lobster tail that was $39.95 per person. )Towards the end she kind of warmed up, but service was a little sub par compared to our last visit.

We've dined at Hondos many times over the years and have usually enjoyed all aspects of the experience. However, on last night's visit - much like our preceding visit - our food was (simply put) mediocre, which is not what one should expect with $40-50 entrees. While our server and the atmosphere were both excellent, the seafood trio entrees were bland, dry, and under-sauced, and the crab cake was far too breaded. In addition, the tomato on the caprese salad was barely edible. Now that we've had two such experiences in a row, we'll give Hondos a breather and see if they can return to their usual high standards of performance.

Was not impressed at all. Reservation was for 6:30pm and didnt recieve food until after 8pm. Waiter completely ignored us all night. He would go to one table three times before even coming back to our table and that was only because we had to flag him down. The only time he tried to have a decent conversation with us was when he brought out the check.

The food is always excellent. They were missing a few things on the item, I guess supply chain. It’s consistently an enjoyable place to eat and this occasion was not disappointing at all. It is fairly pricey but you get consistently excellent food.

We visited Hondo's for our anniversary. The soup was absolutely delicious, and that's where the good review ends. The salad was standard. The steaks (filet and strip) were both dry and flavorless. My filet came out on the rare side (I ordered medium and it came out very red/blue), which makes the lack of any juice bewildering. My husbands strip came out super greasy due to what I'm assuming was butter that had melted on the top. The baked potatoes were clearly microwaved and not baked, the skin was wet and scraped right off. We also ordered dessert, cheesecake and chocolate torte. At 6pm, they were already out of the torte so both of us got cheesecake. We had to ask for them to go as we were there for two hours already. When we got home and looked in the to-go containers, we realized the slices were basically one finger wide. Very disappointed in the expensive lackluster food. We will not be coming back.

We were between Hondos and another high end steak house, and we were very disappointed with our choice. Servicer were inattentive, for example we never got bread and waited a long time between courses. There were many staff members on the floor yet we were rarely approached. We ordered apps and once we were finished, we still had not been asked to order our entree choice. Porterhouse was over cooked and over priced. Shrimp entree was not hot when served. Overall the quality of both food and service was certainly not worth the bill. Would not recommend.

Everything was wonderful but the service did get a little slow towards the end of our meal as the dining room was filling, possibly due to the current labor shortage? Highly recommend the fried oysters.

Cocktail service was unusually bad for a high quality restaurant.

Hondos
Responded on October 20, 2021

I am sorry that you feel we have bad cocktail service. I was the manager that overheard you say that you had wanted your drink up and not on the rocks. Once I heard that I went directly to the bar myself and had your drink prepared the proper way and delivered it myself. We do all that we can to ensure our guests leave us happy.
