“Super Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I had dinner here last night and ordered the Salmon with brussel sprouts. It was all very tasty, and the presentation was super! Looking forward to trying the veggie burger next, since that's what everyone was talking about. Everything was good, food, service and atmosphere!

“Great restaurant with good food and excellent wines. Nice waiters and great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

The Restaurant is located in a nice area and very closed to the hotel Huntley, within walking distance. However it is a little noisy.

“Great Food and Ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

I love these restaurants (Houston's is what I have seen at home). Bar seating was available and fun, as I chatted with several people. A little on the expensive side, but the food quality was excellent.

“A "Go-To" Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Formerly Houston's, I've been to Hillstone >5 times and its definately my go-to restaurant in Santa Monica for a casual dinner or small plates. Consistently good food, and very polished and professional wait staff for an upscale casual chain restaurant.
