50 Washington Ave, Richmond
This is a great old place that has a great history. It is tucked in the great little town of Point Richmond, off of Hwy 580 before the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge. It has quality food, drinks (full bar and a great selection of wine), and the nicest of people that serve you. The owner is lovely and if you go on your birthday and you are lucky she might sing for you - and what a lovely voice she has. Friday night is half off wine night and our favorite time to go. Great for a date, friends or family. Can't say enough good things. It keeps me going back and back and back . . .
Rebecca was attentive, friendly and professional. She usually works on Mondays. We liked the restaurant a lot. I recommend Hotel Mac Restaurant!!
Amazing! I would say this is one of the bay areas most hidden treasures. Tucked away in point Richmond in a building full of rich history that catapults you straight to the 1920s thankfully with the exception of the no colored signs but all jokes aside the food here is as rich in flavor and emotion as the cool antique interior design. The staff are impeccable but if you come here on a busy night they will politely tell you to make a reservation because Friday and Saturday nights can get insane. I’ve had nearly everything on the menu and nothing ever gets old. There is un overwhelming romantic vibe here so if you come with just a friend things can get real awkward but hey it may work out in your advantage as it also serves as a Hotel =)
Awesome happy hour!!! Easy parking... great FULL bar... With good food.... Friendly bartenders..
Went there on New Years Eve. Menu special. Had the Filet mignon. Glass of sparkling cider, soup and dessert. Everything was delicious.
You wouldn't know it walking by however, Hotel Mac has a Awesome bar with everything you can imagine. Today they were coming out with new signature house drinks. I came in on my lunch break and am a fan for life! My server was named Johnathan. He was a delight.
Love dis place Humsey coffees are awesome but listen to this ol lady You gotta eat some real food not just starters. Have 2 large mac n cheerese and 3 crab cakes and then sppend the night.
Great food love this place! They have an amazing happy hour and the ambience is nice and the Bar tenders are always nice. Eion is really cool. I love the drunken mussels, fries, bread and butter, the creamed spinach. Hotel Mac is a long standing Resturant. I used to come here as a kid with my parry table. It's pricey but the happy hour menu is awesome!!
My friend and I had lunch on a Monday. We were welcomed by a cheerful server/hostess/bartender - it seems as if Rebecca was everywhere. I had fish tacos which was delicious and nicely presented. But first we sat in the bar area lounging in very comfortable chairs with a glass of chilled wine. Rebecca was attentive, friendly and professional. She usually works on Mondays. We liked the restaurant a lot. I recommend it.
Charming hotel & restaurant. Lovely dining rooms & balcony over looking a magnificent bar. Music in the evening with cocktails or a meal makes this a to go to spot. Fabulous food! Great staff of servers & bar tenders.
We visited on 12/30/19, and the gorgeous Christmas decor was still up. We ate downstairs and had a professional, attentive waitress. The food, as usual was divine, and the martinis were top notch! This is our 'go to' place for special occasions! ?
Great vibes and very personal service. The menu was fresh and delicious. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone. Reasonable prices and large meals. Great work.
That day, we ordered the "grilled prawns cocktail" as a starter. The prawns were grilled to perfection. And for our main course, we ordered two different sandwiches. A classic turkey and bacon club sandwich aka "the Mac Club" and a crab cake sliders with one side for each sandwich. Both were good, but the winner for me is the crab cake sliders!
We ate at Hotel Mac Restaurant for lunch on a Friday (12/27/2019). Hotel Mac is a historical spot filled with charm. The restaurant is divided into two floors. The ground floor is a bar and lounge area (food can be ordered from the bar), and the second floor is considered the restaurant dinning hall. When we walk in, it was fully decorated for Christmas and the holidays. It was a nice touch. Their lunch menu was not to overwhelming but with enough selections. Also, their wine list was comprehensive with alot to choose from. (See pics for details) That day, we ordered the "grilled prawns cocktail" as a starter. The prawns were grilled to perfection.

Alex, our server, MADE OUR DAY!!! This was my first time patronizing The Hotel Mac's restaurant as I took my mother out for a Holiday lunch. She loves historic properties and as this was built in 1911, and is in Point Richmond, I thought it would be a great outing. Us girls THOROUGHLY enjoyed our time here! We had a TOTALLY WONDERFUL experience from beginning to end. Prior to coming for lunch, I called to make a reservation and the lady who answered the phone suggested making a reservation as they are usually fairly busy during lunch, M-F, as Chevron is nearby, as well as many other businesses, thus many people frequent here for lunch! Naturally, we arrived at 12:30pm today and they were packed for lunch -- tables were bustling as was the bar (you can eat all dishes at the bar). They also offer dinner, seven days a week, but lunch is ONLY available during the weekdays. Brunch is not available on the weekends; however, I have a family friend who mentioned that brunch had been served in the past. The atmosphere is immensely welcoming, and cozy, as upon entering, via the Washington Street entrance, you come into the bar and lounge area (off to the left) as the reservations desk, for the restaurant, is straight ahead and up a few stairs. My mom and I were seated in the balcony area, directly above the lounge, and had 9-10 tables as it was a terrific location. Plenty of windows to let the Winter sun drench the room with warmth and also wonderful view below at the Mezzanine where other tables, and the bar, were. The Hotel does have some designated off-street parking, but if full, one must find street parking (all of which is free). Directly across the street is a cute little Café and Deli called Little Louie's. The restaurant is easy to find when exiting off of HWY 580. The service was IMPECCABLE as ALEX was our waiter and OUTSTANDING with attention to our needs, as well as knowing the menu, and specials. Alex listed a variety of specialties for today's lunch in which my mother and I opted for. We both had the Pear and Apple Salad that had mixed baby greens and candied walnuts with just the right amount of dressing. Our main dishes were also well flavored and plated to perfection as the presentation was exquisite, and the taste made both our taste buds dance! My mother order the salmon that came with rooted vegetables and leek puree. I had the swordfish with Basmati rice, fragrant lemon butter drizzle and steamed-to-perfection broccoli. Naturally, our plates were cleaned due to how wonderful the dishes were. Oddly enough, we had room for dessert (most important! HA!) as my mother had the cheesecake and I opted for the limoncello cake. In addition, I also ordered a cappuccino. HANDS DOWN, AWESOME!! Knowing this place exists makes me want to come to Point Richmond now! :)
