A dear friend and I went here for dessert on our first visit. We ordered Champagne (properly chilled) and their key lime pie. We both looked at each other after taking the first bite and agreed it was the best we have ever had (and we both travel a lot). A slice is a good size and worth the price.... More

This is the old Houston's with all the familiar menu items one might expect. The food is always solid and the wait time is usually pretty significant. If you want to skip the queue, sit at the bar.

One of the hallmarks of a great restaurant in almost any town is the size of the crowd. Hillstone always attracts a crowd because the food is tremendous and the service is next to none, very personal and knowledgeable. This winning combination in a town full of excellent places to spend your money to have someone else prepare your food... More

Whether with family or friends, this restaurant never disappoints! I have been dining here for years. This time, the restaurant was unusually late in seating us even though we had a reservation. (Don't show up without one!) Much to our delight, we were offered a free appetizer upon being seated and a sincere apology as well. The waitstaff are top... More

Love, love, love this place. Ask if the grilled artichokes are in season. If so, they are a must! If not, the spinach artichoke dip is a consistent favorite. Favorite salads are the Thai Noodle or the Club. These are large entree salads and can't be beat. Ribs are fall off the bone delicious too.

Sometime ago, Houston's became Hillstone (sibling rivalry with the city to the south?)...the good news is that the quality of food, service, atmosphere, etc. has not changed. This is still a great place to dine or for a casual meal. Be forewarned, it's almost always crowded...even at off-peak meal times. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait. If you... More

Food is always good along with service. We go at least once a month if not more. They have a fabulous pianist in the bar area on Thursday - Saturday named Ralph. Anything you eat there is amazing

My wife and me are not from Dallas, but travel there at least twice a year, and we always schedule a dinner at Hillstone. It is our favorite dinner spot in Dallas, located in the nice Preston Ave. We went there last Saturday, without a reservation and were told it would be 30 minutes to get a table for us.... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat! The food is delicious I've had nearly everything on the menu the Hawaiian Steak Is my favorite and the lemon drop martini is the bomb! I gave it 4⭐️'s because of the 1 single hard wood bench you sit on when your waiting to be table seated. On weekends its standing... More

We eat here at least twice a month - usually for lunch, but dinner is excellent as well. For lunch you can't go wrong with the French Dip sandwich, hamburger or ribs. But if those don't sound good they also have some great salads and fish dishes. Don't miss the reds beans and rice (Mondays only) or the key lime... More
