“A Treat for Mother's Day !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Being taken out by my family for Mother's Day, a treat! My first choices, Yuga and Christy's in the Gables, both closed. Strange...None of the four of us had eaten at Hillstone so we decided to try it. A 20ish minute wait. Not bad. Sat at a very little bar-area table, ordered drinks and asked how we'll know when our table is ready.. and was told they note and remember where everyone is sitting and will come to you to lead you to your dinner table. It worked!

So nice to have truly lovely service from everyone, from the hostess to the several servers. Appetizers, dinners were excellent. We all shared an Asian steak salad resembling a small mountain, a couple fresh yummy and not the usual tempura fried coconut shrimp hosomaki rolls that came with an excellent remoulade dip as well as a spicy mayo dip. We nibbled on soft and cheesy bread slices, a very fresh tasting Cesar salad, an excellent well seasoned prime rib and a tremendous excellent veggie burger. Finished with one nice sized very creamy piece of Key Lime pie with four forks. A little pricy but lovely, good value, pleasant atmosphere Noisy when we walked in but after that we had no trouble talking to each other at our very comfortable booth.. Would like to go back and sample other noms.

“Party of 8 really loved our meals!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I can't imagine anyone not finding something on the this menu to eat. In our party of 8, we got 3 filet mignons (which were very good), 1 pan fried Red Snapper which was good a Prime Rib sandwich (which was very good) and the Thai noodle salad with chicken (which was very good) I will definitely be going back. Not a cheap meal, but worth it.

“Always happening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is a favorite place in Miracle Mile, it is always happening, pretty people, good ambiance, good drinks at the bar, and most of all good food! But make a reservation or expect to wait at the bar for a table, it's always crowded...cause it's good!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We always try and have at least one meal here and it never dissapoints; this visit was made even better because we only waited 3 minutes for a table!! Food is excellent every time we come and we cant wait for another visit soon.

“Great service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

I had the Hawaiian Ribeye, which was very good. The wait here is always quite long it seems. Very good service!
