    Good food, as expected. Service was attentive and very friendly, but was slightly off tonight. Our orders were misplaced and incorrect. Majority of our orders’ sides were incorrect. A hair was found in one of our plates, which was promptly replaced with a new full side of spinach and a new slice of meat. Remembered a birthday and treated the kids very well.

    My husband and I dined here this evening for his birthday. It was a lovely experience. We were about 10 minutes late to our reservation and completely understood if we would need to wait a few minutes before being sat. We were sat immediately. William was our server for the evening and he was delightful. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The food was even better. My family and I will certainly be joining on other occasions. For what they charge, you certainly get what you pay for.

    My favorite restaurant on the planet! Exceptional as always. Tip: get the seared King Henry. Searing does not brown the interior at all and adds a wonderful smoky flavor, served with a complimentary and fantastic bearnaise sauce.

    This was probably my 10th Thanksgiving at HOPR now. Grateful for how consistent they are at always providing great service, great food, and still a great value... even in this economy. If it's your first time I recommend coming not on a holiday as the service is even better then.

    We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The service was impeccable and efficient. We decided to celebrate Thanksgiving early on Wednesday night with eating out instead of slaving over a turkey and fixings. This way everyone enjoys themselves and food is cooked to perfection.

    Great evening! We had reservations and we were seated promptly at our scheduled time. We were given warm sourdough bread while we waited for our waitress. Our waitress was amazing, she was very attentive, patient (we had our children with us) and I liked how she she explained everything in detail about the menu since it was our first time. It took awhile for our main dish to come but we understood because it was very busy. My son loved the cornbread, he ate that more than his actual meal. The prime rib was great especially with their options of horseradish. My prime rib did not come out as I requested but our waitress was quick to get that fixed and another one out perfectly cooked.Overall, our experience was great! Definitely coming back and telling the rest of our family. To top it off we were given a photo to remember the night and a sorbet dessert to celebrate our anniversary.
