of other restaurants in this Group. The menu is similar to the others, however, the quality of food is not. I typically order the variation of Thai Noodle Salad, the salad I was presented, was more expensive, smaller and had so few noodles, I thought...More

A great bar- good for drinks or for solo dining. An eclectic menu good sushi, steaks, fish salads, burgers and sandwiches. All versions more than acceptable. But as I said, not cheap. A lunch can set you back $50 with one drink. Wait staff is...More

Went here based on the restaurant being rated #2, but I think there are better options. The French dip was supposedly their top lunch dish. Not so much and certainly not the best we ever had as proclaimed by the waiter as it needed more...More

They have a 72 hour marinated rib eye that is out of this world!!! The service is top notch and the ambiance is sexy cool. I love this place! Everyone from the greeter, the server, the bartenders and the managers are so professional and engaging....More

Felt no real sense of urgency to help a couple with a crying child, hence I would never write something negative. I am not one to utter anything negative but it did upset me to have a lack of attentiveness to small children.

Great veggie burger. Discovered Hillstone is owned by the same people as Bandera which we had just been to in Chicago. The veggie burgers and string fries are equally delicious. Personally I like the jazz atmosphere at Bandera Chicgo a little better.

I had the exact same thing twice in two days... the french dip with Tabbouleh instead of fries. The sandwich was excellent and the tabbouleh very good... just a little too heavy on the salt. Service was pretty good both times. Would definitely come here...More

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
