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

Great restaurant with cosy booths. I had the prime rib which was fantastic and my partner had the ribs which just fell off the bone. Staff were very friendly, would thoroughly recommend

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

Always great at Hillstones, the ribs are the best thing ever, though I also had the Thai Beef 7 Noodle Salad whilst in New York which was also fab. A little dark inside which can make it hard to see the menu

We were in Boston doing the tourist thing, following the Freedom Trail and soaking in all the 300-year-old history we could find. But after a while, the folks on the plastic bucket drums and the street performers get a bit tiresome, and we were looking for place to sit down and relax. And right there in front of us was... More

We enjoyed lunch at Hillstone this past week. The atmosphere is very nice, however, the menu is rather limited. Between the five of us we sampled everything from the Sushi to a steak. Nothing was bad, but nothing exceptional. Portion on the tuna steak were very small and it appears the best deal is the BBQ ribs. With all the... More

We went as parents with 3 children and were well hosted for this visit. Very attentive service and well stuffed plates with finely spiced meat and salads. Good value for the money and family friendly. Go for the child portions, which are less priced and largely big enough for children.
