For nearly 10 years, Hillstone has been serving American classics, sushi, and some of the best value Prime USDA steaks in the city-all prepared from scratch daily, with the highest quality ingredients available. Along with our crafted and exceptional value wine list, our menu offers something for everyone. Located at the edge of the financial district, Hillstone offers a sleekly designed space, appointed with mahogany hardwoods, cozy leather booths, and an impressive island bar with floor to ceiling windows. We are located at the intersection of 60 State Street and Congress, adjacent to Faneuil Hall. We validate parking for up to 2 hours for the 60 State Street garage Monday through Friday for guests who enter the garage after 3:30pm, and during all business hours Saturday and Sunday. The 60 State Street garage is located on Merchants Row off of State Street.

Went here having been to the Park Avenue branch. Restaurant not a chic however service was probably better. Food was very good also however Park Avenue gets the nod. Worth a visit.

Just the most atrocious Caesar salad ever served. If you are going to add peanut flavoring it does not work and it could have health issues for people with food allergies. And cilantro in a Caesar salad? Ugh! And for about $20? Never again.

Nothing less of what you'd expect from the Houston's/Hillstone group. Professional & friendly service, delicious food & fabulous location.

After reading the reviews I was expecting to have a much different dining experience but I must confess the hype over this restaurant is inflated. I arrived at 6:25 PM on 3/31/15 after my driver had spent more than a little time trying to find this restaurant. Why? Because the address is shared with an office building (E Trade) and... More

All of the food at this restaurant is excellent but their sushi is by far the best I have ever had and I have been to many top-notch sushi restaurants. The location is perfect, ambiance is cool-chic-romantic-fun... whatever you want it to be. The staff are professional and courteous. If you are in the Boston / Faneuil Hall area you... More

Hillstones is a chain restaurant. However, don't think of chilli's or cheesecake factory, this is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. It's an upscale restaurant that's not stuffy. You can be dressed up or more casual to dine here. The wait staff is the best in Boston. I eat here about 3 times/month and more in the summer. They... More

No restaurant can be perfect every time, I get that. I go here about 10 times a year and this was the first time I was motivated to write a review, good or bad. This particular week it was a romantic birthday dinner. As always, the drinks are made well, the atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. With no reservation we... More

A reliable favorite for business lunches, for a relaxed dinner, or drinks. Frankly any 5 star reviews or terms like 'amazing' are greatly out of place. The food ranges from adequate to good, without any dashes of excellent. What makes this place nice, and moderate food bearable, is just wonderful decor and lighting than really elevate the experience. Highly recommend... More

This was my friends and my first time going to Hillstone and it was absolutely amazing. It was recommended to me by some friends so I decided to go and it was more than I could have ever imagined. Between the great food, great service, and great company, it was a night to remember. The night started with drinks made... More
