Reliable and excellent restaurant, specializing in seafood, pan Asian, with tasty and creative salads. I especially like their chicken salad (normally served at lunch, but also available at dinner although it's not on the dinner menu). Hillstone is always pretty crowded, but they seem to be very efficient. To prevent a wait, be sure to make a reservation.

Hillstone is the place to go for great food and people watch. Star is very friendly although it is not someplace you can deviate from the menu. The staff works as a team and are very professsional. They do aim to please. I've never had a bad experience.

I had the trout and it was very delicate and really good. I tried the artichoke appetizer and it was very unusual but ok. I didn't know what part to eat. Someone else had this Asian noodle with avocado and mango which was really good and looked even better.

We eat here at least once or twice a month and have for years. The food and service are consistent. Get the spinach dip and the hot fudge sundae. The patio is relaxed with heat and A/C. Diverse menu, good bartenders. Hard to get a table if you a large party, though.

Driving on Camelback Rd. looking for a place to eat. We pulled into this place with no reservations at dinner time. The place was very busy. Really lucked out and found a place at the bar to sit. The food was great, the service at the bar was fantastic and the desserts were orgasmic. Highly recommend this place. It's not... More

HIllstone's, which used to be Houston's on Camelback Road, is one of the best places for lunch or dinner. I always enjoy meeting old friends there, grabbing one of the booths in the bar. Hillstone's is located in the heart of the Camelback Corridor, near 28th St. We usually start out with the Artichoke Spinach Dip. I always have the... More

Sophisticated ambiance with mesquite wood smoke scent. Dining room with open kitchen to view. We had a grouper sandwich ( nicely flavored and hard to find here in the desert) and superb but pricey pork ribs. Very tender, the ribs fell away from the nicely seasoned meat. Tasty slaws No room for dessert

A friend wanted to check out Hillstone before he took some of his family there for dinner, so we went for lunch on Friday. Good for them they were packed at 12:45, the place was beautiful, the staff was attractive and attentive but... between the two of us he had a fish sandwich, I had a cheeseburger with no choice...

I have to say I have been here a few times but today was extra special. We were the 1st ones at the restaurant and Karen with her amazing personality sat us. Our waitress Christina came over and remembered us from a couple of months ago and told us where we sat last time WOW. We had the spinach dip... More

A high end lunch done very well. Service excellent, food was also excellent. Location on Camelback Road in midtown Phoenix with ample parking also a big plus. We will be back in the near future as we have friends coming for spring training games.
