Love this place even though their part of a chain! They nail service and all appear to work as a team picking up, delivering and checking on tables outside their own.

Two trips to San Francisco lately and dined at the Hillstone for lunch on both trips. Food and service have been outstanding both times. Rosemary bread as an appetizer was delicious and the trout entree was fabulous. Servers are very professional and attentive. Highly recommend...More

What an amazing place! My husband said the ribs were the best he had ever had. My Thai steak salad was also amazing. Great staff and service would definitely recommend this place.

Our group of 3 had a delightful lunch at Hillstone. Everything was delicious, but my favorite was the Thai steak salad. Fried chicken sandwich also yummy.

I have been a Houstons/Hillstone loyal customer since 1989 and over the past few years I've grown increasingly disappointed in the fact that their service standards have stated to slip. I have to say that this is NOT the case at the San Francisco location....More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
