We arrived and found the specific table we had asked for ready and waiting. As it was a small table our waiter slid another table in beside us so we would have more room. Our waiter was attentive, respectful and gave us excellent service. The food was superb and the view of the sunset and the city a delight. Did find a bit of a draft from the window - not a huge problem. And didn’t think the bread was on a par with the rest of the ingredients. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Went during Thanksgiving weekend for a birthday celebration. Went for the view and was expecting mediocre food. Food wasn't hot. I felt forgotten by our waitress. Though she was courteous and polite, she rarely checked in on us and we were constantly craning our necks to locate her for refills etc. Despite a $300 bill for four, I formulated a plan for fried chicken before I even left the parking lot. View was not worth the price of admission.

We had mentioned on the reservation that it was a special occasion - the wife's birthday. We were very disappointed that the restaurant did not care to wish her let alone offer a small slice of pastry, with a candle maybe, to make her smile. This was despite her mentioning to service staff that it was her birthday.
This left us very unhappy and ruined what was otherwise a lovely evening. Not to mention that dining out here comes at a premium price!

Was one of the best evenings out we have had in years. Our waitress "Bea" was great. She helped make the evening a real pleasure for us. Our reason for going there was to celebrate 5 years of cancer free.

Beautiful Tuesday evening,
we did request a city view table when we made the reservation which wasn't relayed to the hostess station and after we were seated at a table with a minimal view they were able to move us to a city view table

The meals are expensive and the food quality for our meals was poor. The 12 oz rib eye steak was very chewy and the amount of fat was excessive. Not worth $41! The calamari was good however there were bits of Thai chilies that are extremely hot and should not be served without a warning. Or should not be in this appetizer at all. The wine and beer were good.

Beautiful view, but the service was extremely slow even on a slow day. We waited about 8 minutes after sitting down for water, my dish was dirty and asked for it to be replaced, that took 15 minutes...
Calamari was delicious, my steak was flavorless, the coconut shrimp tasted great but the plating was horrendous. It was done better before, but I will not be back.

Not sure what happened here, but definitely not the level of service or food quality that I have experienced in the past. I understand that staffing issues can happen , but the lack of professionalism and poor service along with poor food quality made it a bad experience . I would currently not recommend and not sure I will ever go back.

I felt a bit disappointed when I asked a waiter if they provide a free dessert for a birthday customer , and he said no!
I asked because I had been to both Milestones and Earls and they provide a desert for a birthday customer. It doesn’t cost much , but I was thinking it will be Appreciated if they provide!

Wasn’t impressed... won’t return.

Horizons has simply gone down hill. I hadn’t been in around 3 years and not the same, except view is the same, which is very nice. Sloopy, careless service, food was overall disappointing ... decor is very dated and tired... music, well maybe enjoyable for my grandparents. I will say the manager was very nice, after I mentioned how poor the service was she tried to make up for their short comings in terms of bad service and poor food we received.

Beer order mixed up. Appetizers and main courses delivered to wrong people. Servers should know who ordered what. Bread stale, returned. Seafood orders good, short ribs looked odd. ? Sous vide. Carrots and cauliflower pre cooked. Overabundance of horseradish not needed in mashed potatoes or at all. Jus offered at end of meal. Why does the chicken have to come with ribs? Menu needs an overhaul. I would not recommend or return.

My wife ordered the Halibut on the fresh sheet and she found it dry. They did make her another which was perfect but the rest of our party were almost finished our meals by the time hers arrived. Our waiter did offer to get her something to eat while a new one was being prepared but we had just finished our appys and bread. The fresh sheet was not organized clearly. Appy, main, soup, all mixed up on the sheet. Should follow the regular menu layout for clarity.
