My wife and I had dinner at Hillstone last night. I believe this was our 5th time there, and as usually Hillstone never disappoints. We like get stop at the bar before our reservation time for a cocktail. The bartenders are attentive, professional and friendly. And the drinks are well made. The dinner menu features a nice variety of items.... More

Had a business lunch. Food is great, especially taking into account how fast it was served. Beware, portions are large. Take it into account if you need to keep on working afterwards... :) Very welcoming and efficient staff.

Hillstone is a great restaurant and worth a visit. I ate lunch there while in Boston for business, and the food, service, and ambiance were excellent. The drink menu was tempting but I was, unfortunately, unable to partake. Not a cheap meal, but worth it, in my opinion. Expect to wait for a table (at least at lunch), but the... More

Loved the kale cashew salad and the California burger. I do it like sushi but the menu looked great. Seasonal menu. Nice food presentation. Friendly attentive waitstaff. Regretting my choice not to view the dessert menu. Only con for business dinner is the lighting. Very dark and the light over the table is like a spot light.

Although it was a very long wait and I mean long since the table of six kept ordering more rounds of drinks and kept the table busy for an extra 90 minutes, the manager made sure we had a few cocktails and appetizers on the house. The food there is always amazing and the service is very personal.

We have ate at the Hillstone in Orlando several times and always had a great meal so I was not reluctant to go to a "chain" property while in Boston. You really can't go wrong with anything on their menu but my favorite is the hawaiian ribeye. Literally one of the best steaks I have ever had. Great atmosphere and... More

While at a recent convention in the city, we ate here twice and really enjoyed the fabulous food and exceptional service. Our second visit was fairly late one evening, almost 10pm, and although the restaurant was winding down for the evening, we received a warm welcome, a lovely meal and a relaxing environment to enjoy our last night in Boston....

We stopped in last night around 7pm (Tuesday) and the place was full! We waited only about ten minutes for a table and while waiting I watched the sushi chef perform her magic. The kitchen area is all open for viewing which often impresses me as I can see the practices used (or makes me run out the door -... More

Love this restaurant, for the food, service and the atmosphere to meet friends when in Boston. Favourite is the Thai Salad...but the entire menu looks great!
