Great place to enjoy a drink outdoors in front of a fireplace or dine indoors in an attractive dining room. They have a creative selection of sushi appetizers and a good assortment of entrees.,The prime rib sandwich is delicious and big enough to share.

I was so impressed by the service and kindness of our waiter today at Hillside, I had to write a review. I don't normally write reviews for chains as people usually have their own opinion but this location was so welcoming and the restaurant itself is lovely inside and the outdoor seating looked so inviting. We had the world famous... More

I wrote a very positive review following our first visit there earlier this year. We have returned at least once a week since then. We eat out every day and have done our best to sample as many restaurants as possible. Hillstone and their sister place, Houston's in Scottsdale are by far our favorites. If I had to describe the...

Great for lunch or dinner. Great menu and served to perfection. The servers work as a team, so you never have to wait for anything. From Sushi to the crispy fish sandwich or veggie Berger. Great salads. The only negative for my husband is their selection. It's very different and they do not serve Bud Light. However, good wine selection.

This is a very good restaurant, so outstanding at times there is a wait to be seated. Service and food are first rate, I had an amazing grouper sandwich, my wife salad was fresh and crisp. Above average on cost but the product is worth it.

Take your megaphone with you. This is probably the noisiest restaurant in Phoenix. Normal conversation is impossible. The general noise level from the crowd is high and then they add really loud background music (trumpets and horns) which isn't really appropriate for fine dining. The pork ribs were only so-so and French fries at Hillstone's prices (expensive) are actually an... More

This restaurant seems to be busy and that might be the reason that they don't keep the customer's preferences in mind when they prepare and serve their dishes. I took two of my girlfriends to lunch (a request from the birthday girl) and ordered the caesar salad. I requested that the lettuce be cut up (they serve it with full... More

I have been a fan of Hillstone for years but that is starting to wane. I went in the this particular location for lunch with a business colleague (we're not from Phoenix). I was bragging about the food and the incredible service at their locations (Murphy's Law). We sat at the bar which was quite crowded, but we had ample... More
