Great food and beers

Unusual and tasty dishes. Tried some cheese dishes, some Opa cheeks and duck liver pate dish among others. Good beer pairings and atmosphere in neighborhood you could find other places to stop along the way.

Walked in around 6:30 on Sat. and were told they were completely booked. Over 3/4 tables were empty. They seriously gave us (and others more casually dressed like us in the lobby) the once over. We were all told that we were more than welcome to go enjoy open seating in the lounge at the very back of the restaurant... More

Took three work colleagues here for Dinner. Had great knowledgeable wait staff (Sarah) who really helped us through the beer menu and dining options. The charcuterie and cheese was excellent. I had the duck (amazing) although the spice in the dish was surprising, not necessarily bad just a surprise. Two colleagues tried the pork and steak and pronounced it very... More

I took 2 other couples there for a nice meal with wine. Food was not bad, though undercooked (almost rare) and not medium as we ordered it. Waitress said that it was prepared the way the chef thinks it should be cooked. Service was very, very poor - had to repeatedly ask for water and extras, and not even busy.... More

I'll review dinner another time ---- This review is for their $5 Pho Special on Monday nights --- Yummy. Available in veggie or beef, it's a perfect light dinner. Sriracha is served on the side, but taste the pho before you dump it in. It's already mild spicy - you don't want to kill the wonderful flavors (there's already a... More

The reception was warm and professional. Very upscale; cool, unique outdoor decor. The bartenders were as social, knowledgeable and professional as any I have encountered. (We were asked if we would like to sample anything in which we were interested). The wait staff were all chic and had great attitudes. The actual service was a bit lacking at times however,... More

Nice place with a unique menu. I had a nitrogen infused IPA that was an absolutely fantastic beer, smooth as it ever was. We had a cheese / meat platter and some scallops for an appetizer. Both were good but the scallops were smaller than grapes. For our main entrees everyone commented the food was very good. My only complaint... More

Nicely designed, Hinterland is a mix of natural materials, and the dining area is really attractive. My spouse and I dined early on a Thursday evening, as we didn't want to rush dinner before leaving to go to a show at 7:30 pm. We arrived at 5 pm and were promptly seated - we were the only ones dining, and... More

Dined at Hinterland on a Saturday night and everything was nearly perfect. We were greeted promptly and cheerfully and decided to grab a drink first at the front bar while we waited for our other guests to arrive. Again greeted promptly but couldn't understand the slow service since the bar wasn't crowded. When our other guests arrived we told the... More

This was my 2nd time dining at Hinterland and I'm ready for my 3rd. I sat at the bar on a Tuesday, around 6:30 or so for a light dinner. Great ambiance, with dim lightening and high ceilings; and a good mix of people to watch. A great spot for a work dinner or a special date. The beet salad... More
