Amazing food appetizer and service

I am so excited to go home to Boston and turn my husband onto this restaurant. My hope is is the quality and service will be the same. The food was fresh we started out without the pressed sushi which was delicious and extremely fresh. The menu had a nice variety and I got a noodle salad with... read more

Hillstone is owned and operated by the same people who own Houston's restaurant. For some reason, they closed the Houston's that use to be next to The Ritz and opened up Hillstone right down the street! Anyway, it's the same menu as Houston's so you know it's good! No one can touch their Spinach and Artichoke Dip! It's often imitated... More

The architecture is very Frank-Lloyd-Wright-inspired. Some reviewers complained about noise, but on a Wednesday evening (early) it was fine. From the minute you walk in, you realize that you are in the hands of competent professionals. The staff works together as a team to take care of everything. No food auctions here (i.e. "OK, who had the chicken?") We had... More

I had the Thai Steak Salad. Not sure exactly what I was expecting but what I got far exceeded anything I imagined. Inside the salad was a LOT of pieces of Filet Mignon steak. The ingredients were super fresh and tasty, but the most amazing part of this salad were the mix of flavors and spices. I don't know what... More

The food was very good. I had the ribeye and really enjoyed it. Key Lime pie was excellent. The service was wonderful. We never felt rushed. Only complaint would be the noise level. I will be going back.

Just a very solid place to get a meal. Good service and really good food. I usually get the salmon or the French dip. French dip is best in town. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the desserts. They are weak.

Made a reservation, went to restaurant, waited a few minutes watching the Coy fish outside (amazing) and then was seated.'It was very noisy, could hardly talk or hear my wife. Offered artichokes (delicious) ordered. reviewed the menu, it had gone... More

We stopped for lunch, the noon hour was extremely busy. Looks like Hillstone is a favorite for local business people. The food is first class and the servers, very professional, knowledgeable and very attentive. Our lunch was awesome. Get there early and avoid the wait. It's very, very popular.
