Love the service, but the Food is a bit Pricey

I like the setting of Hillstone, the food and and the service, I just find it's a bit more like NYC prices. I had a Caesar and my husband a French dip sandwich and we split the spinach dip and each had a glass of wine and with tip, it was over $80. The entrees are pricey, too.

One of our favorite restaurants - both in Napa Valley and Winter Park. Best ribs and french dip sandwich ever. Service is impeccable. Could not have had a better experience.

Hillston 2 This hot Summer- ever and everywhere- is not the best one to properly enjoy, as we do always, Hillston and Its splendid location by the lake and its even more splendid sunsets, but yesterday the Sun was shining after some morning showers, and it was not as hot as days before, so ...my wife and I decided to...

We had to do some errands in Winter Park and it was our 38th wedding anniversary day as well so I told my husband to choose a restaurant for lunch and what a find! I had the prime rib au jus and my husband had the grouper sandwich. Well I'm usually not a big fan of prime beef because I... More

Expect amazing food and expect the host stand to be cold/rude/disingenuous. We've been here half dozen times in the last year and all the food is perfect. We've had three bad experiences interacting with the greeter staff. I would recommend they have the valet team train the host team on how to treat guests.

We live in Winter Park and have enjoyed many wonderful meals at Hillstone including this past week. We love the venue especially eating outside overlooking the lake. The food is excellent with many salad entrees. Excellent house wines. They so not offer bread and butter, but it is available upon request. I love their fried jumbo shrimp, the smoked artichoke...

We moved from Austin TX and I knew this restaurant was one of the former "Houston's" establishments. Even though the name has changed they still have the same awesome menu. Our favorite the Hawaiian Ribeye. It's so so good. They also have the best spinach dip anywhere. They are in a beautiful location. If I had one complaint it would... More

A double cut lean chop that is literally "like butter". This a great restaurant but an even better bar. Great professional service, happening vibe and well prepared delicious food. We started with better guacamole than most Mexican joints and both enjoyed the amazing chop.

First time visit, we were very impressed with Hillstone. The restaurant is an upscale place that has a fantastic view from inside and outside at the lake. We were told the hamburger buns were made in house, and those at the table having burgers really agreed. The burgers are not your traditional burgers, each is special. They even had a... More

We love Hillstone's! Tonight was a celebration and everything was wonderful, as always! We had the Rotisserie chicken, wedge salad and Key Lime pie! It was wonderful! It's always a pleasure to dine here and know the food will be great and the atmosphere enjoyable!
