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

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!

“just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

we usually have at least one meal here while coming to the Gables, and although the staff is very friendly, it seems each preceeding time gets a little off as far as food. The menu has gotten small and the variety is lacking. It was acceptable but they have the market for enticing patrons because the location is superb.

“Busy for a reason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

No matter what time you head to Hillstone's it is busy for a reason. It has a fabulous bar, great menu selection with something for everyone that will please. Ribs, martinis, sushi and pinot, it has it all covered. Staff is friendly and courteous.

“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
