Good not Great

We met some college friends that we had not seen in 15 years at restaurant. Hard to complain about the food. I had the fried shrimp, my wife had the crab cake. Our friends had prime rib and fried chicken sandwich. The service had been fine but we felt we were being rushed out of the restaurant... read more

Visiting friends and family in Boston we decided to take a trip to Boston's historic Quincy market place. In stead of taking chances we went to Hillstone Restaurant. We had 3 children and 6 adults. I still don't' know why they changed the name but it is the same consistently good food across the country. We had great salads sushi... More

Hill stones is one of my favorite places for amazing red meat. Their prime rib, their filet mignon, their grilled artichokes, Thai salad and other salads are wonderful. It's a great location right on the edge of Fanuil Hall. Great choice for couples, singles and family birthdays. I will say on the down side that their "almost" wonderful house made... More

Been here multiple times. By far the best Veggie Burger ever. I usually detest Veggie burger's, but Hillstone's Veggie Burger's is a must have. Great French Dip and Fish Sandwich as well. Ambiance is nice and price is on the higher end. But I've never been disappointed.

We only stopped in here for cocktails after touring around Boston for the day and needed to wind down a bit for dinner. The cocktails were excellent but very pricey. The space is beautiful and the bathrooms are spot on clean. I wouldn't mind going back for dinner soon.

In a great location in the center of tourist activity in Faneuil Hall, Hillstone offers some great and healthy options. The sushi is surprisingly good - with the coconut shrimp roll a good option although a tad sweet. The burgers are awesome but the best dish is the ahi tuna plate. Reservations for lunch is almost always needed as the... More

This restaurant was chosen by the groom [Local Bostonian] and I am glad he did as I am not from the area. Hillstone is right next to Faneuil Hall. The restaurant itself though is sunken. The atmosphere is modern, intimate and very chic. The kitchen was open and the aromas filled the dining space. Service - I went back and... More
