Excellent Service for a Bachelor Party group of 13

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... read more

My family tried this restaurant while visiting Boston. Our food was very good. I had the veggie burger and it was excellent! It was pricey but service was good and I would definitely go back again.

I've been a big fan of Hillstone for a while now. I enjoy the service (very helpful, friendly, service oriented, ...), I enjoy the environment. And more importantly the excellent food. My favorite dish is the USA Filet, cooked medium-rare and "blackened"! This is something we can seem to get in Europe. Love it. Oh... I'll be back later on... More

We just happened to choose Hillstone when we couldn't get reservations for another restaurant. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. My husband said that his prime rib entree was one of the best he had ever had. I chose the kale and cashew salad (to die for!) and spicy tuna sushi. Afterwards, we agreed that we were glad that we couldn't... More

Went for a quick birthday celebration with close friends. Our server was fantastic without being overwhelming. We asked many questions about the various dishes and decided on Sushi, Kale Salads and hamburgers and fries. All were very good. My personal favorite was the Kale Salad. I thought that was delicious and would love to have that next time as a... More

They found a way to squeeze six of us in for dinner on a busy night. Staff was cheerful, helpful, and the good was fresh and delicious... From the shushi to the salads it was a yummy evening.

Hillstone is in a touristy area, but don't let the location fool you...this isn't your average Faneuil Hall tourist stop. The restaurant has a nice bar area that looks onto patio seating. We arrived for lunch around 1:00pm on a Friday and while there was a good crowd, we were seated immediately. There's no formal children's menu, but they accommodated... More

The best coconut shrimp sushi I've had in my life. Nice atmosphere too. A spot I have definitely returned to.

They say the make their own bread and grind their own meat every morning. However they do it, this was one of the best burgers I've ever had.

Ended up at this restaurant somewhat due to happenstance, as our group could not get a large enough table at the originally planned dining location. We all ended up being very happy about the choice and really enjoyed a good dinner there. The restaurant is right near Faneuil Hall so it is in a rather touristy area. It is also... More
