Horrible Service and Food. The young lady manager was rude from the outset. Place was empty but was told there was a 45 minute wait. Wish we had left but my daughters wanted to eat there. Big Mistake. After waiting 45 minutes, we saw that...half the tables were empty including many for our size party. When I told the inept manager, she responded by alerting me that I had only waited 43 minutes and that she had timed it herself. I suggested that arguing with a customer over 2 minutes was not smart customer service. I politely told the inept manager that I would never return. Ribs were cold, spinach dip was watery, and burgers were overcooked. Not surprising that Hillstone's food is on par with its horrible service.More

Early evening reservations to once again visit a great restaurant. Quality is perfect, quantity is perfect, and pricing is perfect. Don’t understand why appetizer is served and while eating the main course follows. Felt very rushed. This for me is unacceptable. Sorry had to score...you a 1 but this is the consequence of rushing your repeat customer. Did not even get time to take pictures of the main course.More

Still pretty good lunch place if you are in Coral Gables. The spinach dip and the tres leche is the best; the rest okay. I would not go out of my way to eat there. But it’s okay.

It is incredible that one of the best restaurants in coral gables has such a bad hosting standard that I could not believe it until I saw it. The food is the best , servers in general are pretty good but hostess seating people ,...managers picking and choosing who to seat when ever they feel they have your table . They do not follow a first come first serve , they tell you they have reservations which is not true. Try to make one and they tell you they are not taking any more reservations but you are welcome to show up and wait standing. For an hour. While you approach the bar the bartenders as well pick who to serve stating they have a waiting list which is not true . They seat who ever they believe can live the better tip . It is really a shame how they operate their hosting stand and their bar. And they are discriminated my daughter. So if you plane to come with the family, they treat you bad.More

I have been a Hillstone fan since 10 years. Today I go super excited to have my usual thai steak noodle salad only to find out they changed the steak for chicken. Out of 4 salad options they have 3 with chicken. Super bad strategy....No option even to pay extra and change for a steak. If it is a budget issue I think anyone going to Hillstone wont mind paying a little extra for their steak salad. Will definitely not be coming back as I can find a chicken salad anywhere else. Please bring it back.More

Nothing like driving across the state to try to eat lunch but they’re still not seating 4+ at tables so we sat 5 across at the bar - but that’s not allowed either. We have been coming here for more than 7 years now. The...mask mandate has been lifted (granted, we all wore masks while entering anyway out of respect for individual establishments). But when you can’t seat 5 across at the bar but can squeeze 2 stools on a corner on top of each other, you look like an absolute idiot. Losing out on a LOT of business. We won’t be back.More

Nothing like driving 2 hours to have a lunch with friends and they won’t even seat 5 people! Not even at the bar. Don’t waste your time and come to this place. It’s a total waste of time.

Took my 2 girlfriends here after a successful bridal gown shopping morning. We had an excellent lunch and I wish I could remember the server's name to compliment her here but alas.. too much prosecco etc. Amazing food, excellent service and a feel good vibe...overall. Thanks Hillstone!More

Dined here several times at coral gables branch... however the past year utmost disappointing. Limited take out menu with long wait for take outs... 1 hour for an order that included 2 sushi rolls amongst other things . In door dining limited to 4. They...turned us away on 2 occasions , a family of 5 with 3 kids less than 9 years old ... not family friendly. We even told them we could fit in a 4 adult person booth ... and still they turned us away.. while the bar was packed ... no logic ! Probably they have so much business ... they don’t care anymore about customers . Visited them on another occasion with a friend ...In dining limited menu and dessert ... one out of 3 desserts available ... Ribs not consistent .. hit and miss .. were very dry! I’m done with Hilsltone coral gables .More

Once more Hillstone Coral Gables delivers great quality! Service and food, both excellent. Spinach and Artichoke dip, hose smoked salmon, NY Strip Steak, Key Lime Pie... 👌🏻. For wine, try Emilio Moro (Rivera del Duero) 2018, very nice!

You must make a reservation as it's always busy! Especially weekends. Nice atmosphere and valet park. Think $5-7 all along miracle mile. Hope was useful
