“Excellent Food in a restaurant that knows how to deliver it all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Excellent food and service. Lovely atmosphere as well. Be sure to try the key lime pie. A top pick by my gown son, who normally doesn't eat dessert except for this. A bit noisy if you want a quiet cozy place this might not be your choice. Very, very popular with usually a wait.

“Consistently great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Good food. EXCELLENT cocktails. Good atmosphere. Try the crab cakes (lump crab meat), the super thin french fries, the grilled artichoke and the tuna steak.

“Great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We ordered the Sante Fe salad and drinks. Great atmosphere, lots of menu choices. Maybe a little expensive but not bad for a coral gables.

“I'd go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

This was my first time at the Hillstone. Dined with four co-workers and had a nice time. We all thought the food was good, not great. No complaints, it was what you'd expect at that price point. Location is great. Service was above average. We had a wonderful server who went above and beyond to make the night an overall positive experience. Do recall that the server made excellent wine recommendations.

“The best crab cakes, artichokes and veggie burger anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

My menu choices don';t vary much, but my three options are as good as they get, anywhere. This place is packed all the time and any reasonable lunch or dinner hour is packed and with waiting time. The bar service is good and the drinks generous. The wine list is mostly well chosen and moderately priced.

There is a reason why this Hillstone's and only this one, is packed every day. It is consistent and excellent in every way.

On occasion someone writes a nasty review about this location, including one dissing cleanliness. I would discount such a review as being a disgruntled person for some reason. Food preparation is open, clients can watch their own food being prepared, and there is even an overhead mirror to permit easy viewing of the sushi preparation. The restaurant has been immaculate every time I have been here, and food preparation and presentation has been impeccable.
