My wife and I intended to visit another Kirkland restaurant that turned out not to be open for lunch. We pulled out of our original parking place and turned into Lake Street, starting to discuss our options. Fortuitously, a car pulled out of parking place smack in front of Hector's and we grabbed it. (Parking is always tight in many... More

This place appears totally mismanaged and understaffed. We went on a Saturday around 11 am with our table for 12 reserved, only to find out that they are grossly understaffed. Our table is far from ready. We had to wait a while amid several vacant but uncleared tables but decided to split up instead of keep waiting forever. I would... More

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

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!
