Good Food In a Noisy Crowd

This might not be the place for you on the weekend. It has a wait to be seated, even w/ reservations. It is extremely noisy and does not accommodate conservation. We had a booth and could barely hear one another. The large bar area was full of drink patrons. If there was a partition between... read more

In Dallas meeting with clients, had time for dinner before flight back to the greatest city in Texas, Houston. We passed by Hillstone earlier in the day and elected to try this restaurant. Decor a lot like "Houston's" in my hometown, and I believe the same group runs Hillstone. Our dinner was excellent. I had the salmon dish with couscous,... More

I drove 3 ladies to Sun. lunch last week at this restaurant. Because Hillstone does not take lunch reservations, we were told our wait would be 25 mins. I asked the hostess to please pass on to management that there are three churches close by and all let out at 12n Sun., so PLEASE begin to accept lunch reservations for... More

Arrived about 10 minutes early for a 7:15 reservation on a Thursday night. I entered the restaurant to check in and it was noisy to the point I chose to step back outside to wait on our table. My colleague and I were seated ~30 minutes later. The food and service were as you would expect but not exceptional. Not... More

This was formerly Houston's part of the chain in many cities across the U.S. Although the name has changed, the place is essentially the same as before. This is one of those restaurants in Dallas that is hugely popular with the set that is NOT especially discriminating when it comes to dining out. I always want to love a meal... More

Been dining at Houston's/Hillstone for at least 30 years. Always excellent. My primary complaint is that they raise their prices way too often. I remember when the rotisserie chicken was $14. It is now $24. Best baked potato you'll have anywhere, even better than fine steakhouses.

Their food is so consistent and good the crowds are always there. If you go, make sure it's either early or late, otherwise can be a 45 minute wait. The grill chef on separate occasions has given us fries to munch on while we are waiting. What a great touch and personalization to this place. What can I say about... More

Hillstone is one of those places that you can always count on for a great meal with excellent service. This place is busy regardless of the time of day or day of the week and it's because of their consistently delicious food. We have been frequenting this restaurant for many years and have tried most items on their menu and... More

It's hard to drive by here. Anytime of the day. I keep waiting for something to fail, it never does. When you have to wait...it will be pretty close to how long they tell you from the beginning. Pick a meal...any meal...done right, perfect portions, and served by someone who is totally into making you feel like you should be... More

We had to wait 20 minutes for a table and it was very busy. Have to say it was definitely worth the wait. The food was delicious and the service was timely and friendly. Will definitely return.
