The Hillview Grill has great food and great ambiance. Mondays are half price for the bottles on the wine list. Nice selection of small plates and full dinners. My favorite selections are cedar plank salmon, shrimp taco's and fall off the bone ribs.

Every time I go to the Hillview Grill it's like going to a old friends home. The staff treats you like family and the food is always off the hook. Tonight I tried something new: the Tuna tacos WOW!! I found a new favorite. They have a great selection of craft beers and a wide selection of wines. I'll be back Thursday for Burger and a Beer night for only 10 bucks - what a deal!!!

Had the chance to visit the "Grill" with some friends this past week, WOW! was all we could say, Besides the pleasant atmosphere, Excellent food ( at VERY reasonable $), we enjoyed wonderful service by people who obviously love their work, Being recently retired from the business, it was nice to see a restaurant run with such teamwork! We even stayed to have after dinner drinks with some locals and crew! We were VERY happy with our experience and will return often! Thank you for a GREAT evening Hillview Grill!

Visiting Hillview Grill during any visits to Sarasota has become a tradition. We hadn't visited since 2008. I can say the blackened grouper sandwich is still one of the best on the planet. Too often at other places, the seasoning overpowers the fish; Hillview still serves up the perfect balance.

A delightful place to eat outside. We had lunch there while doing
errands in the downtown area. Menu was nicely varied. Great
place for people watching.
