I was excited when I arrived at hillside, the place is beautiful and has excellent views. I knew going in that I wasn't a fan of their wine but I've heard nothing but good things about the restaurant. But it is definitely not for everybody. The portion sizes are small with it has a very limited menu and some might... More

This was not my first visit but was a must visit! It is a lovely lunch stop and the bistro has many nice lunch options with suggested wine pairings for each dish. I had their wonderful carrot soup and they even gave me the recipe so I could make it myself. The meat platters is a wonderful addition to go... More

We had dinner at the Bistro on the Friday night and enjoyed it so much - the food, the ambience, the wine and the service - that we returned for lunch on Saturday. A comfortable environment that will appeal to foodies yet satisfy those just looking for a good burger.

Four of us dined here. Two had the chicken, two the chard. Everyone enjoyed their food very much. The chard was really good, cooked perfectly - no trace of dryness. Veggies also beautifully cooked. Service was swift and friendly. Duncan, the owner, introduced himself to us, which was a nice touch. Great evening.

My wife and I had a wonderful meal at Hillside recently. On a cool and drizzly fall evening, we were happy to sit warm and comfortable by the fireplace. We enjoyed the ambiance of the room, the art on the walls, the fine service, and the delicious food. Standouts for us were the beef carpaccio appetizer - to die for!... More

We went for supper on a Saturday evening for what we thought would be a slightly fancier supper to go alongside some fantastic wine. The ambiance was quite casual and we were definitely overdressed. Our server didn't seem to know as much about the wines as she should have considered she worked at the winery. She definitely struggled to recommend... More

we attended a wedding ceremony and reception at the Winery. The winery was warm and inviting even if the weather was not. The staff made every effort to ensure the wedding went off without a hitch. The owner was down to earth and proud to show off his winery. Personal touches were everywhere. We were made to feel like we... More

I stopped for lunch with a friend yesterday by chance ( had intended going somewhere else) and was pleasantly surprised. We had a very good lunch and good service. I had not been previously as a friend had negative comments about their visit but Hillside will definitely be on my list of stops when I take friends to the Bench.

After years of cooking Thanksgiving Dinner, my wife and I along with best friends decided on a new adventure. Thanksgiving dinner at one of the wineries we have frequented several times. The "nut" of my complaint goes as follows: the soup was lukewarm and sent back; the turkey dinner resembled a stack with a thick round slab of turkey on... More
