There is nothing about Hillstone which is super memorable - but it works well within the formula. It's a buzzy, destination restaurant serving upscale(ish) American restaurant fare. We went on a Friday evening at 7.00. It is clearly very popular. Every table was taken, and people were being turned away. We were seated within 5 mins. The waiter was very... More

Excellent meet cutting, good cooking, nice hospitality. This tome I tries this Amazing thai noddle salat that comes with marinatrd filet. The Hawaiien ribeye... More

Very good service, food is expensive but taste pretty good, if you don't mind paying! I went with my cuzin, it was cool. But the music sucks the jazz in the background makes me nervous.

We were on vacation in Santa Monica staying nearby and after a tremendous first night experience at Hillstone, we ended up eating there three nights in a row. While that may seem extreme to some, our repeated return reflected great service - from Garrett, Casey and Nic - an incredibly warm welcome from Linda(?) at the front desk and everyone... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. Nice menu and our food was good. One of the best salads I've had recently. The waitstaff was friendly and the whole experience was pleasant. I'd go again.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
