“Sunday afternoon drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This place is always crowded - didn't eat, but sat at the bar. Service was a little slow but the bar was full. Ordered a dark & stormy cocktail - $13 - and it was strong, definitely generous with the liquor but I wouldn't order this drink again - the combination wasn't my favorite. Reasonably priced considering the Miracle Mile location. It was louder than I wanted for a Sunday afternoon drink with a friend, but ambiance is consistently nice. I've come here for dinner before, and I enjoyed their lengthy wine list and scrumptious appetizers.

Nice ambiance, great location and good food. Artichoke dip is a favorite. Reservations are suggested even for a table at the bar area.

“Great food and casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

You have to try the Thai Tuna roll. What a wonderful explosion of flavors and taste. The HAWAIIAN RIB EYE was very good as well. Our server was so nice and we loved the business casual and friendly atmosphere at the restaurant. I love trying new restaurants and options but at Hillstone I know what I am going to get: Excellent food and service!!

“Great Food, Nice Ambiance... Just got even better! (now accepting reservations for up to parties of 4)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Hillstone is a Coral Gables Hotspot for many reasons, mainly the food and the atmosphere. Great happy hour on Fridays, their drinks are well made with generous amounts of liquor. Now Hillstone accepts reservations for parties of up to 4 people, eliminating the wait for a table during peak periods (dinner). I like to make a reservation and arrive a few minutes early to enjoy a drink at the bar which overlooks the whole restaurant. I have been a patron for almost 10 years and have never been disappointed. Best server by far is Barbie ask to be seated in her section and enjoy your visit even more.
