Seriously, the outdoor dining area at the back is nice is you have a dog that you wish to have join you. However the ambiance is parking lot and the food uninspiring. There are too many other good choices, and it's not cheap eats.

My wife and I had dinner at Hector's last night. The wedge salad was generous but uninspiring. It would have been good with a better dressing, such as a vineragette type. The beef stroganoff was slightly better than uninspiring. The decor and ambiance were good, as was the white sangria.

I mainly go here for breakfast or dinner served outside in the summer. Food is reasonably priced and consistently good. Inside is a bit dark, so we always ask for a table by the window. We were there two days ago and had huevos rancheros and eggs Benedict and both were wonderful.

We went for lunch at Hector's with our son to be introduced to his long-time friend and his family from the eastern U.S. We were seated in a quiet part of the restaurant perfect for the occasion. Both the food and the service were excellent. There is free parking on weekends close by, as is Lake Washington.

Having driven by Hector's many times, I tried it recently. I liked the stroganoff. Good comfort food, pleasant atmosphere.

We had a reservation on a Saturday night and were seated in a back banquet room, the only 4 top with a huge party of drunk loud people. After 10 minutes we asked to be moved to the main dining room. Once moved we were ignored for nearly 30 minutes. During this time we observed two instances of a manager... More

Great afternoon to sit outside on expansive patio. Nice selection of beverages...food was "OK" but only tried a few things. Service was OK; they were busy!

My husband and I came here for lunch yesterday. This was a special treat for us, we usually don't go out for lunch much. But it was a nice sunny day and we thought we would sit out on their patio and have a casual meal to relax and talk. We both ordered the salads...they were expensive but we ordered... More

Looks a bit old and dark when you walk in the bar. The server was very friendly and funny. The drinks were very good. The only food we ordered nachos which were average. I would come back for drinks.

Went here for dinner last night, free parking behind the building. Met friends I had worked with in Kirkland many years ago. Kirkland is a bustling place on a Friday night, especially when the sun is out. I had made a reservation so we were seated right away. We all ordered something different, friends had a generous fish and chips,... 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!
