Ambience was very nice, service was very prompt and our food arrived very quickly. We both went for steaks and they were done just right. Wait staff were attentive so we never had to wait for drink refills, etc.

We visited Hillstone twice and on each occasion we had dishes both good and not so good. For example, the spinach dip was tasty and well prepared, but the rosemary foccacia was little more than bread fried in butter, with virtually no other flavors whatsoever. The Hillstone burger was very good (but not worth the $20 price!), as was the... More

Hillstone's freshly grilled foods was a nice surprise in a traditionally New England venue. I had fresh grilled artichokes served with a light dipping sauce. Perfectly prepared and not something traditionally found in Boston. The cod steak presentation was lightly grilled in lemon and butter! A new take on a traditionally New England options with light , healthy and tasty... More

I am no stranger to Hillstone, in fact I am a huge fan of all their restaurants across the U.S., but finally I am reminded to write a review. After spending a week in New England and eating at some top restaurants , we decided to have our last meal at a familiar spot. As usual we had fantastic service... More

My wife and I were staying close to Faneuil Hall and spent a lot of time walking the area during the day. So in the evenings, we were a little worn out. One night we tried to find a place to eat, and just happened across Hillstone. I found out that it is part of the Houston's chain, and had... More

Hillstone is a chain, but a good one. I've eaten in this restaurant in Faneuil Hall, Boston a couple of times, also met there for drinks. They pull off a nice combination of bar and 'high-end' booth decor. The atmosphere is lively and convivial. The food is not surprising, but good American fare. Last time I (and nearly all my... More

We had just finished wandering around the financial district and headed over to Faneuil Hall since we knew there were lots of places to eat over there. The menu outside Hillstone looked pretty good, if a little more expensive than we wanted, but we decided to try it anyway. I had the Thai marinated steak salad and hubs had the... More
