Party of three and we all ordered something completely different and everything was delicious - sushi, salmon and ribeyes. Staff was courteous and service was perfect. For some reason they brought us a dessert on the house to share.

The food is fine, the room is loud and parking is nonexistent. Like R and D it's sister restaurant I think it's one of those places people end up going when they don't know where else to go. The best restaurant under this ownership is Honor Bar in Beverly Hills, also loud but a nicer food selection and the Mango... More

I was not expecting what we had. First of all the service was wonderful. Salina was full of friendly smiles and did her job perfectly. She heard all my requests and delivered on them. WOW! I cannot tell you how many times in other restaurants I ask for lots and lots of extra onions. Only to have to ask over... More

Always enjoy coming here but wonder why a burger is $19? I do like the food, lovely service always, always with accommodating staff. What's up no high chairs, no booster seats?? - some message to families who would enjoy dining here as a family but lack this amenity for children. Artichokes fab, ribs great , again $33 ! Oh well...

Wrapped up my meeting and decided to stop in for a glass of wine. Bar area was very inviting. They have four stellar wines on tap. I sampled the Chardonnay and Pinot noir...decided on the saints berry Pinot. In need of a little food I went with the grilled artichoke....done perfect and paired great.

The only bummer is that they do not take reservations. And another bummer is that it is noisy, but better upstairs. Service is to notch and food is really good. We shared a first course of smoked salmon with thin toast and ramoulaude type of a dressing. Fantastic. Prime rib was a generous cut. Red trout - delicious! Had no... More

Great steakhouse in Santa Monica. Large room with usa style armchairs. Excellent choice of meats and wines, also served at glass. Incredible Hawaiian Rib-eye, tasty and crisp on the surface. Good dressing. Friendly and helpful staff. Absolutely recommended!

Hillstone delivers a wonderful dining experience across the board. The space is upscale, clubby and casual...refined but not stifling...very warm, relaxing and comfortable. The service is professional and attentive; clearly they hire and train their team very well. The food is exceptional; fresh California cuisine with an Asian influence. They offer a number of sushi options that make great appetizers.... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
