The three times I've eaten here I've gotten the cheese burger, you think I would learn not too. Every time it's been cold and the last 2 times the sauce they use is not as good. Some complain about the price but hey it's San...More

First, the food was delicious and would have given the place 4 stars if not for the service. Can’t blame the server as it seemed that all the staff worked to turn the tables as quickly as possible. We ordered the Clam Chowder which was...More

Burgers and salad were very good, but unfortunately our waitress was rather cold and haughty. Maybe due to our bad accent, was hard to make "hot chocolate" understandable, like she disapproved our choice... Other waitresses seemed to be more nice, maybe we'd just been unlucky.

After an evening on Alcatraz, we were looking forward to some good food. Hillstone did not disappoint. The menu was varied, the crab cakes certainly recommended. The service was great. Our waitress was prompt, happy and very helpful. Very ambient atmosphere.

A little pricey but worth it (which can’t be said for a great many san F. Restaurants.) The staff were attentive and friendly, professional and warm which is a tough balance. The food was made with pride and the beef (French dip) dip was outstanding....More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds
for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North
Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
