Coming from someone who has worked in the restaurant business for five years now, for me to rave about Hector's so much means that it has really made an impression on me.
Hector's truly a wonderful experience at anytime of day! The relaxing and eclectic atmosphere begins once you enter the door and notice the wonderful decor. Sitting in the lounge in front of the small fireplace with a small group of friends, enjoying a cocktail and appetizers is the best Friday treat I can recommend for anyone. On Wednesday nights they usually have live music in "The Back Room" as well as a lovely outside patio that is intimate and perfect for romantic dinners.
The staff is friendly and attentive and always willing to try and make unusual requests work. If you ever are in the Kirkland area - I strongly recommend you drop by Hector's and try it out!
