The ambiance was quite spectacular. A view of the valley, followed by an awesome sunset, while sitting at the cozy fire pit. The waitstaff was terrific and very accommodating. The lamb chops were cooked just perfect and everything was just delicious!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

I went to the Hill Top Inn with coworkers after arriving in Elmira for a quick business trip. Surprisingly (or not) it was one of the only restaurants that we had heard anything about. We decided to check it out, and since the weather was nice we opted to sit outside. First off-the view was stunning. You can see all... More

I have now eaten here twice and have not been disappointed. The restaurant is in a beautiful location overlooking the city of Elmira. The view is nothing short of spectacular. I kept saying that I would love to be there on the 4th of July to watch the fireworks because I bet it would be amazing! I indicated a $$$... More

We came for Easter Sunday dinner at 4 pm. Most of the food listed on the online menu was non existant. What was there was heavy on carbs and looked gummy. Nothing looked fresh. They were nice enough to let us go after trying to cobble together a meal -- unsuccessfully. Our server was very nice though and the view... More

Third generation family owned. Breathtaking view of the Chemung Valley and river. Excellent food and service. Al fresco or indoors. It's just one of the best anywhere. Whether you're at the bar, outdoors near the fire pit, or anywhere inside, you'll love the warm comfortable atmosphere and the fine menu. Nothing exotic...just really good food, nicely prepared. Make sure you... More

The definition of a great night out! Dynamite food, breathtaking views and a talented, enthusiastic staff. The hors d' oeuvres were inspired and the salmon was delicious! Thanks for a tremendous night out - 5 stars.
