The food is good, service is outstanding, everything is expensive especially cocktails. Over the years I have been going the prices have skyrocketed while portions shrink.

I love the vegiburger there. Eat your steak and build your cholesterol I'm gonna have the vega burger with braised red cabbage and a beer while looking at beautiful Lake Killarney

My wife and I went to Hillstone this past weekend for an early Valentine's dinner. We have been wanting to try Hillstone for a while so we felt this would be a good opportunity to go. We arrived early and went to the bar to get a drink before our reservation. The greeter and bartenders were very friendly. The drinks... More

Hillstone has become one of our regular "go to" restaurants in the Winter Park area. We recently visited again on a busy Saturday night and once again, the quality of food and service were consistently high, everyone's meal was delicious and service second to none. We also like that you can carry in a bottle of wine to be uncorked... More

Hillstone is a true gem in Winter Park. I have been there many times for lunch and dinner. The service and food quality are always exceptional, and the view of Lake Killarney is enhanced with floor to ceiling Windows, an outdoor dining area and even a dock on the lake. One of my favorite spots in Central Florida for sure!

Hillstone provides you with a wonderful menu,fresh food well prepared, attentive service and a beautiful view of the lake out back. You can choose to eat outside or in the attractive main dining room. The bar is a lively place, and the wine list is excellent. You can bring your own bottle for a minimal corkage fee. Make a reservation... More

Hillstone has awesome food and service! The spinach dip and salmon appetizer are the best!!! My grandchildren love the location, right on the water with a deck. We love to have our coffee outside in the garden.

We came here to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. We had made reservations ahead of time, which was a good thing because they were really busy at 6:45 on a Tuesday. We were seated really quickly as a result. Tip:make reservations via Open Table or through the restaurant. After sitting, the hostess said she would bring us water. It's a... More

We were in Orlando and when we are in the States I always look for a Houstons/Hillstone, which is one of our favourites. Made reservations (pretty much a must). These restaurants are very busy, and the staff very professional and mature. We ordered, as always, the calamari, and it was very good. My husband had a burger. Their burgers are... More
