“A Family Favorite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We come to Coral Gables with our four hungry teens quite often as my son is a football commit at the U. There are so many choices for dinner on the Miracle Mile and I'd like to try them all some day, but my family won't let me. They can't wait to return to Hillstone aka Houston's. The boys love the ribs and the girls love the Hawaiian Ribeye. We always start with the smoked salmon- it's awesome. The drinks are fabulous as well as is the service. The manager is always more than accommodating. My husband dreams about the hot fudge sundae - not to be missed but big enough to share! Do not miss this place!

“CALL IT Houston's or Hillstone- ITS GOOD-not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Its a fine place to go for lunch- dinner or just drinks - every time i go to Hillstone's -its full
the most recently Sunday 5/11 for late lunch
we were seated quickly- and drinks made it to our table shortly there after...
i personally do not find the menu to be that appealing

staff is attentive- food was good - dessert us just ok- something chocolate
if you are in the area and you can get a table - then stay and eat- if not there are plenty more places at Miracle Mile

“Sunday afternoon drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This place is always crowded - didn't eat, but sat at the bar. Service was a little slow but the bar was full. Ordered a dark & stormy cocktail - $13 - and it was strong, definitely generous with the liquor but I wouldn't order this drink again - the combination wasn't my favorite. Reasonably priced considering the Miracle Mile location. It was louder than I wanted for a Sunday afternoon drink with a friend, but ambiance is consistently nice. I've come here for dinner before, and I enjoyed their lengthy wine list and scrumptious appetizers.
