First time, but not the last

What a great meal. I had the barbecue ribs, some of the best I have ever had. My wife had the giant pork chop, and she loved it. The spinach dip was heavenly. Service was impeccable. The only negative is the loudness of the restaurant. Definitely, a singles pickup place at the bar.

I have been visiting Dallas almost every single year since 2007 and since then i always go for dinner at least once in Hillstone (or Houston's as it used to be called). I believe that this is my favorite dinner place in whole dallas. The steaks are amazing, the portions are original Texas portions and the service is almost every... More

Great place to go hang out after shopping. A little pricey but what do you expect in one of the trendiest places in Dallas. The Hawaiian Ribeye is by far better than most steakhouses & the spinach dip is worth driving for from anywhere in the Dallas Area. Ideal place for a prospective client.

I will change my rating to five stars when this restaurant finds artichokes for its Grilled Artichoke appetizer (the veggie burger is still fantastic!). For over four months, they have made excuses about being unable to garner appropriate artichokes for the dish, while we bought beautiful globe artichokes during this time in California. I hope they can work with their... More

This is part of Hillstone Restaurant Group, and is similar to Houston's, also a part of the group. The food is always excellent, comes out hot (or cold if a salad), and fresh. The service is excellent and sharp. Expect a wait, unless you get lucky and catch a spot at the bar, where many people eat dinner as well.... More

We had not been to this location since it changed names. Still part of Houston's just new name. I had the Thai salad. It was awesome.

Part of the Houston's restaurant chain this is an upscale version of the restaurant. Although pricey the service and food was excellent. Highly recommend if you are in the neighborhood.

Food was good as expected. The service was not quite up to standards. At least four people came to our table but didn't quite get the order correct. Lunch crowd was booming.

I have been to 11 of these locations across the U.S. The now closed Rockville location over 300 times. When you want excellent food on the road and not sure where to go, you will not go wrong going to this chain. Our table had the prime rib, prime rib sandwich and cheeseburgers. Awesome as always. Service was spot on.... More

Our party of 3 arrived around 5:00 p.m. On a Friday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly. We had the Spinach-Artichoke Dip to start. It was very creamy and delicious - just the right amount of cheese and the fresh chips were very crispy. Two of us had the French Dip Sandwich made with prime rib. It had been... More
