Very good food, delicious burgers. Fries could be slightly longer fried as those seemed to be undercooked. So, if you order anything with fries ask to have them "well done".

Last nite was my 3rd visit and I was wanting to just stay and soak up the friendly atmosphere. The Hawaiian Rib Eye may be the best steak in the world. Reservation a must if you want to get in.

Best food and service I’ve ever had. The California Burger was so fresh and cooked to perfection! The environment has to be the best anywhere!

I was going to go with ribs but the pork chop at the table close by called out to me. I am so glad I chose this. Maybe the best chop in years. Perfectly cooked and the sauce was wonderful. Highly recommended.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

Hillstone Restaurants generally doesn't cater to large groups. Not part of their business plan. And I have never been to one of their restaurants where a private room is available. And they are usually not a quiet place... More
