I absolutely love Hillstone. My favorite restaurant in the Orlando area. I may be moving to Orlando, and cannot wait to go to Hillstone all the time. The Hawaiian Ribeye is delicious, and so is there chili. I have never had a bad experience here, and the service is really above and beyond. I highly highly recommend it. It's a... More

Though owned and operated by the same company, Hillstone outranks Houston's in everyway possible. The food and service was amazing, and while the view was the same as previously, it's breathtaking. I'm so glad I took a chance and brought my out of town cousin here for lunch.

Hillstone is always on the to-do list when I come to Orlando to visit family. It sits on Lake Killarney & is a perfect spot to relax with family and enjoy a delicious meal. The vegetable plate is to die for; it comes with a delicious Thai-style kale salad, couscous, and two other seasonal vegetables. So good!! The burger is... More

Hillstone is located where Houston's used to be. Came here on a whim and were was happy we did. The welcoming was warm and the service excellent - without being intrusive. The restaurant is lake-front and offers indoor and outdoor seating. When we asked the servers for suggestions, I noticed they did not recommend the most expensive wine or food,... More

Went there for my daughter's birthday. We had just finished dinner and 2 women approached the men at our table and passed out cards to Rachel's men's club. Since when is soliciting appropriate in a restaurant in supposedly a restaurant with some class? Told the waitress about it and she basically said the owner of this Rachel's is in there... More

My husband and I both ordered the salmon dinner. I know I can't post the price, but let's just say I could have fed a family of 10 for what we paid. My husband wanted to substitute another vegetable for the mashed potatoes. Nope, can't do that... No salad comes with the dinner, and we never even saw bread come... More

While traveling through Winter Park Florida, we had lunch in Hillstone, also part of Houstons. The food was really good, especially the kale salad. However our waiter was amazing. I am a real critic when it comes to quality service and this young man is the real deal. His name was Steven. He was well spoken, on time, articulate, and... More

Atmosphere and service were great but food was good. We did have a nice time but I do believe the food was a bit overpriced. I had the salmon, my friends had the Hillstone burger and the steak. Nothing to write home about really, for the cost of each--not that impressed. I would go back if nothing for the casual... More

As a long time regular I've enjoyed many meals. New management has recently implemented policies that are not customer friendly. Today I asked for a minor modification in addition to not getting cheese on a sandwich. I was informed by the general manager "we like the way the sandwich comes." I was unaware that anyone but me was ordering, eating,... More

What a great restaurant! If the weather is nice, outdoor seating is a must. This restaurant has great food with great service.
