We've been going to Hondos for more than a dozen years. It's always been really good. We love the steaks. I especially like the peppercorn sauce, but they make a terrific Bernaise as well. The atmosphere is conducive to intimate conversation or family celebrations. At one time, I would have rated Hondos five stars, but the Caesar salad and bread... More

This is a nicely up-scale restaurant, especially for the Richmond area. We've been going to it's sister restaurants, Opus 9 and Schlesinger's for many years, but this is our first visit to Hondo's. Even though the aforementioned establishments are very good, Hondo's is somehow just that much better. The service is top-notch and the food is prepared as good or... More

I have to admit that the name does not conjure up an incredible brunch - first not many steak houses have brunches so not being a meat eater I was greatly concerned to be going to a steak house of brunch but it could be one of the best brunches I have had while living in VA, almost 5 years....

Simply Horrible! I didn't get the French onion soup I ordered, but instead a salad with French dressing (Waiter mentioned there was an up-charge for soup so I don't understand the mistake). Ordered a Porterhouse...got a T-bone....ordered rare got medium. Normally a porterhouse has more that 2 or 3 bites of tenderloin. Good thing I looked at the check as... More

I would highly recommend for that special occasion or for that impressive dinner. Slightly pricey but when you taste those steaks the price will be the last thing on your mind. My filet cut like melted butter and was amazing, wife had the same and hers was the same. The fried oysters as app was great! ENJOY!

The service provided by Jon was excellent and the food was great. We were able to relax and enjoy a wonderful meal. We will always recommend Hondo's to friends and family.

Hondo's is supposed to be the No. 1 beef restaurant in the Richmond area. Recently my husband and I have been there twice. We wanted to give it a second chance. First time, we ordered two medium rare small fillets, which arrived undercooked. The staff reheated them. Oh no. The meat was tough and stringy--not like a fillet should be.... More

Date night, first timers. Had a shrimp app, and the tuna dinner. Both were above average. The sweet potato was a bit too sweet. The tuna, amazing! Hubs had the rib eye. He loved it. Amazing quality meat. Great service, he was attentive and knowledgeable. Great environment - a bit close to the patio door a lot of people in... More

First of all let me say that if you fill in the survey which comes with your check (and on principle I usually don't) Hondos will keep you up-to-date on their special offers, including a BOGO in your birthday month. They often offer BOGOs on holidays like July 4th as well. This is the only way we can afford dinner... More

I did not know Hondos had built a new place across the parking lot from its old location. The new space is spacious and looks to have a nice bar (not visited). The parking next to the building is a bit limited. The interior decor reminds me of Opus 9 in Williamsburg and Schlesingers in Newport News. It is much... More
