“Again a great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We've been to the Hillstone a few times now - a great spot for lunch. After a morning of shopping and running around NYC, the comfy booths by the bar, a nice cold beer, and the great food was a lovely respite. The veggie burger is still amazing, and the bf had the miso-glazed tuna salad, which he quite enjoyed. The special app of the day was grilled artichokes, which were pretty good, although messy. Service is great, and the atmosphere can't be beat. Highly recommended.

“Easy to overlook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is a corporate sort of place. It may pretend to be young and trendy, but it is definitely corporate. But that said, it has lots of cozy booths for small groups looking for a nice place to sit, dine and talk. We three arrived at 6. We had reservations, but on early in the week, you can get in without.

Our service was excellent and they had a broad enough menu to please three different (but mainstream) tastes.

Unless looking for the exotic, I'd recommend this for almost anyone. Deserts were good too.

“That's the place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

After a short stay in NY, the last night we decided we deserved something nice and we went to Hillstone following some friend's suggestion. Great choice!! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff (we had a great waiter taking care of five of us). The food was absolutely excellent, as starter we had the warm artichoke and spinach cream, which was so simple but delicious. As main plate we had different types of meat and I tried the sushi and everything was "first class". The final check was not cheap but it was worthwhile. No better way to take our last dinner in NY.

“Good, consistent food & great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Have been to a number of these in the NYC area & this neighborhood location is my favorite. Great appetizers (spinach artichoke dip and grilled artichokes are my faves) and consistent food every visit (great salads, petite fiet, ribs, fish and french dip). Service is always great, but can be a bit pricey - more like steakhouse prices.
