Went for for late brunch. Wanted to sit in dining room, but was forced to sit in the bar. Ordered an omelette, toast was burnt. No butter and jam for the toast. Waitress never asked if we needed drink refills.

While staying in Kirkland we had a late breakfast at Hectors. It was a busy, popular restaurant, but did not wait long for a table and service.

I'm surprised this place is still in business. The food is almost uneatable. Gross would be a nice term.. Then I could talk about the service, but we received no service.

We went to Hector's on Sunday for a late breakfast. The main dinning area was available but here was a very large table in the middle of the room, that was full of people and children making the main area very noisy and crowded. We decided to eat in the bar which is a first available seating. We had a... More

Hector's was one of our go to places in Kirkland when we visit several times a year. The atmosphere is still great, service is friendly and fast, but the food is not as good as in the past. It's average, not memorable. My DH had the tenderloin appetizer and wedge salad and liked the salad best. Not a good thing.... More

I've always loved Hector's, the food is consistently good and there's a good wine selection. The only disappointment this visit was the service was really slow and we had to wait a ridiculously long time for the check. The place was busy but there were plenty of servers. Other than that it was great.

I've always liked Hector's for a late breakfast and a great Bloody Mary however the last two visit's the service has been spotty. Typically I sit in the bar area with friends and order however when the weather is in the 80's you have to be outside. My friend and I sat for a good 7-10 minutes before a wait... More

At Hector’s we thought the atmosphere was very cool. Laid back and easy going (maybe it is just the norm in Washington State??) We all had different salads for the lunch with salmon or steak topping and they were more than we could finish. We had a light ale beer (local) that was suggested by the waiter I would return...

My girlfriend & I decided to try Hector's for the first time by a suggestion of a friend, and she & I will most definitely be back!! We ate outside in the large patio area (a must do during the summer), the food was great (we split the Filet Mignon bites and Cobb Salad), but it was our server, Cody,... More

The 40 year tradition carries on at one of the Northwest's most revered neighborhood establishments. Join us for classic comfort food, prepared from the freshest ingredients, served by a friendly wait staff that makes out-of-towners feel like regulars, and regulars feel like home. The Sunday brunch with our classic Eggs Benedict isn't just a menu item - it's a local institution. Or drop in for a drink in front of the 114-year old carved mahogany bar back, and imagine the stories it could tell you. The original brickwork and cozy fireplaces are still here. So is the longstanding tradition of great food with unparalleled friendly service. We intend to keep it up for at least another 39 years to come. You're welcome anytime, and we'll keep the fire going for you!
