We come here whenever we are in Bal Harbour. The food is good and the menu has enough variety to please all of us. Love the scallop salad, grilled artichokes and bread plate. But the best is the hot fudge Sunday. Enough to share.

The burgers were good ($20). We ordered the Ahi Tuna Tartare ($25) on the menu described as hand chopped sushi grade tuna, slice avocado, toasted baguette---what was omitted was the 50/50 mix of tuna and raw red onions. It was not edible for me, but...if you love red onions, go for it.More

Was visiting for the first time. The waitress was kind and accommodating. She served me a perfect ’cuppa’. Lunch-brunch was salad. Loved it.

I ve been a fan of the Houstons concept, I m a restauranteur I always admired the execution and precise food quality and most of all service scratch all that we had a birthday dinner and we there seated on a nice corner table 5...people we ordered a bottle of red "organic "red wine ,after the first tasting we found sediment in the glass ,not just. little bit, but a sizable amount , it was poorly handled the waiter sounded disappointed about us not liking the sediment wine ,it take them after consulting with the manger a good 15 minutes to offer another wine , that is strange considering the service and prices no wine was consumed 3 adults and 2 minors we ordered a spinach deep and tuna tartare to start we had to ask for sharing plates another concern, the old management was always on top of this the tuna salad was different ,we prefer more the old style overall we ha to ask for forks to be replaced ,and after asking for the manager ,she came and pretended nothing happend too bad I will not returnMore

This is a perfect spot for lunch while in the Bal Habtoor Shopping Mall. The vegetarian burgers were excellent made with beans and topped with red onions, tomatoes, pickles and lettuce. They must have been two inches tall. The sides of roosted peppers with feta...cheese and coleslaw were a nice addition. Ice tea was good too as were the espresso and cappuccinos. Service was friendly, attentive and helpful.More

Very bad service. Strollers are not allowed. I was with a 5 month baby and I had to carry him the whole lunch because they do not allow strollers. We talk to the manager and there was not a solution. Do not go if you...have a baby.More

We went here on our first night in Miami, great recommendation from a friend! At the beginning we were not too impressed by the place but we couldn’t have been more wrong! Everything was outstanding from the scallops salad to the special of the night,...focaccia with burrata. But the Hawaiian was the star of the night, rib-eye steak with pineapple-soy-ginger marinade OH MY GOD! If you come here you need to have it. Best thing ever. The service was on spot. Recommended 100%.More

We always eat here when we visit Bal Harbour, and this trip, we actually had multiple meals there! The menu is great, the food is delicious, the service is excellent, the prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is tropical and wonderful. We love the chicken...sandwich, the ribs, the filet, and the ribeye steak. All delicious!More

We loved our first dinner at Hillstone so much (grilled artichoke appetizer and French dip sammies) we went back the next night and had tuna tartare appetizer and I had the Thai noodle salad and my husband had the Carolina beef ribs. This meal was...equally impressive. Food had so much flavor without going overboard. Everything was fresh, tasty and presentation was excellent. My husband described the atmosphere as Laguna Beach vibe... relaxed, classy and comfortable. Highly recommend!More
