Nice venue and great atmosphere. Upstairs section is more classy and calm. We shared sushi and the New York strip - very very good.

This place is fantastic. Staff is friendly and efficient. I had the ribs which were literally fall off the bone. If you're in Santa Monica this place is a must.

visit when during off peak season and during the week. Loved the burgers. The salad dressing was too oily. Maybe a new cook - I'll be back.

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

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
