We came here for dinner, we were seated very quickly and had some good service during the night but also had some bad service. Upon entering I was asked to remove my hat (plain black was part of my waldrobe for the day), now I dont have a problem with this but what I do have a problem with is... More

We really enjoyed this place and returned twice in our 3 day stay in SF! I can specifically recommend the tasty pork ribs, the filet, and the rotisserie chicken. All of them were great. Sides were also good but they could add some variety. Interesting wine list. Atmosphere and service are a plus, with an open-view on the kitchen through... More

We went here after finishing our Sunday trip out to Alcatraz for dinner. We got there right around 8:30 and the place was PACKED! After waiting for close to 45 minutes, we were seated at the back of the restaurant near the piano. This place is not an inexpensive place to eat so lets get that out there to start... More

Feeling wrung out from the holidays, we decided to wing it and take our chances at the bar of Hillstone, one of our favorite restaurants. Being New Year's Eve, this was a bit adventurous, but everything worked out. After patiently waiting for seats, we were offered cocktails right away, and dining setups were laid out. We shared the grilled artichoke... More

Great steak, well worth the 30 min waiting time. Good location. Nice atmosphere. A bit pricey though.

If you want to pay $19 for a cheeseburger this is your place. Pretty much a Big Mac at quintuple the price. Other entrees were expensive also like a cheese omelette for $13. Service was good. Was not impressed.

Parking can sometimes be hard to find but its a short walk from the closest Muni stop. Have eaten here numerous times over the last 2 years and have never been disappointed. Haven't eaten outdoors on the patio yet but the inside booths are comfortable, nice views of the Embarcadero and the bar carries local games on tv. The veggie... More

We took the tour to Alcatraz this morning and got back around 1:30, more than ready for lunch. A friend recommended Hillstone, which is directly across the street from the Alcatraz terminal, so we tried it. We were very pleased. I had a Thai steak salad and my friend had a grilled chicken salad. We also shared an order of... More

All of Hillstone's menu items are superb. We go often for menu items that are must haves. We live the grilled artichoke appetizer. We have tried to find better and can't find better. You will also never have a better French Dip sandwich. I don't know how they do it, but it is incredible. Even if you dislike Kale, you... More
