Went for a quick birthday celebration with close friends. Our server was fantastic without being overwhelming. We asked many questions about the various dishes and decided on Sushi, Kale Salads and hamburgers and fries. All were very good. My personal favorite was the Kale Salad.

They found a way to squeeze six of us in for dinner on a busy night. Staff was cheerful, helpful, and the good was fresh and delicious... From the shushi to the salads it was a yummy evening.

Hillstone is in a touristy area, but don't let the location fool you...this isn't your average Faneuil Hall tourist stop. The restaurant has a nice bar area that looks onto patio seating. We arrived for lunch around 1:00pm on a Friday and while there was a good crowd, we were seated immediately. There's no formal children's menu, but they accommodated... More

The best coconut shrimp sushi I've had in my life. Nice atmosphere too. A spot I have definitely returned to.

They say the make their own bread and grind their own meat every morning. However they do it, this was one of the best burgers I've ever had.

Ended up at this restaurant somewhat due to happenstance, as our group could not get a large enough table at the originally planned dining location. We all ended up being very happy about the choice and really enjoyed a good dinner there. The restaurant is right near Faneuil Hall so it is in a rather touristy area. It is also... More

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
