Amazing sushi!

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... read 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

I had the slab of ribs with a baked potato and slaw. I must say that the ribs were smoky and fall off the bone tender. I thoroughly enjoyed them. The service was incredible and the waitress was thoughtful and helpful. Lastly, for dessert, I had the best brownie with ice cream I've ever eaten. If you are out shopping... More

We stumbled onto Hillstone while wandering around the Quincy Market area. It was in between lunch and dinner -- around 4 p.m. -- so the place wasn't crowded. We were seated immediately and had a wonderful late lunch -- California burger for my wife and ahi tuna burger for me. The decor and atmosphere are very inviting -- comfortable booths,... More

This place is very convenient if you hve been shopping or sightseeing in the Quincy Market area of Boston. It has a good atmosphere, reasonable wine list for wine by the glass. Cocktails looking interesting! We didn't eat but spent a very pleasant hour relaxing. Service was good. A favourite stop off in Boston.
