As a family we love Hillstone in Santa Monica, and were glad to see some changes after our previous visit. Fantastic food always very disappointing to be rushed at the end of our meal and felt this spoilt our experience. I appreciate they may have wanted the table but we had booked, and were not taking partially long to finish our meals, worth booking ahead so you do not have to wait for a table. Tip don't take too long to eat or you will be made to feel very uncomfortable

Food here was outstanding, the chicago dip was amazing. Steaks were cooked to perfection, but the service was unbeatable. Jonah was our waiter, from start to finish he was attentive, helpful and polite! Great work!!!

We ate relatively early as this was our last night in Santa Monica and we were flying out of LAX at 6:00AM the next day. The place was not busy; but, I am glad we sat down at 5:00 as this restaurant was hopping the night before when we walked by late at night (10:00ish)
The rib steak was excellent with a sweet / savory marinade. My sons each had the prime rib of beef and loved it (fries were good too). My wife had the ribs and I indulged in a few ... fall of the bone.
I highly recommend this place.

We have tried Hillstone before, but never at this location. The service was great. Our table had the heirloom tomato salad, ahi tuna sandwich, and the ribs. The ribs are fantastic and the meat falls off the bones. The salad was very fresh. The ahi tuna was a bit of a disappointment. We were expecting a chunk of tuna, like a filet. What we got was shredded tuna smashed into a patty.
