"Very nice waitress and servers but stressed. Management needs to take a look at their workload. Bread took 10 minutes. Drinks came faster. I usually tip 20% but just couldn't do it. Tipped 15%."

"Love going to the Hilltop have gone there for years. Several owners and still enjoy eating at the Hilltop.
This visit was an exception,service was slow slow! Took a long time to even receive service. Had a reservation but the table was not set for 4 it was set for 2!
Food was good as usual, server sure tried but was a little over worked and the kitchen was exceptionally slow.
Still like the Hilltop!"

"Had a great business meal, here. When the restaurant got busy it was a little noisy but were all able to talk and we had a group of seven. Food was excellent and the server was very attentive.
I had the pesto gnocchi with butternut squash in a balsamic reduction. Guests had the mahi mahi tacos and fish and chips and all enjoyed their meals."

"This review applies ONLY to the handling of a filet mignon order. Their other food is excellent. But as you might guess, filet is the priciest item on the menu - $39 - with prawns, so their surf and turf dish. I decided to splurge on it, and emphasized to the server that I did NOT want it medium rare, but rather medium-rare plus, and I explained that meant pink inside. She said of course, and then returned 15 minutes later with a blood-red filet, definitely rare (not even just medium rare). After all the explaining, it was stunning - and I could tell just by moving it it was undercooked. She took it away, and while my spouse started on his meal I sat there while my side dishes cooled. Seven, eight minutes later, still no steak so I flag a busser to find the server, who says it will be just a few more minutes. There were maybe 5 tables in the restaurant and two servers, so there was reason for this kind of delay. It finally arrived, but the meal was pretty well ruined - frustration, high price, lukewarm meal. I was highly annoyed that for such an expensive dish, they have set up a system to ensure that the cooks do prepare it correctly. (The server explained there was a "language barrier" causing the problem.)"

"Felt like we were sitting on top of people next to us in both directions. Loud, noisy. The worse was feeling after spending over $100 it included two soups, one iceburg lettuce wedge, one square piece of fish smaller than a deck of cards. Not worth the price for the amount given or for the taste. Soup had truffle oil that was way too much added, and the fish so bland. This is the third time at this restaurant for dinner and twice before for lunch. Won't b back. Not worth the money and the atmosphere was overcrowded and loud. The waitress and service however was very good."

"Gave this place two tries to get my patronage. Both times, they left us waiting for more than 30 minutes to give us the check. The cheese plate we ordered was dropped off by the manager who has the personality of cement- not a good example of customer service. I'll never be back."

"The atmosphere was nice, very busy for New Year's Eve. Food was undercooked. Most likely because they were in a hurry. Waitress was friendly, but hardly checked on us. Overall it was good and we will be going back. Maybe on a less busy evening."

"Our meat was overcooked. My Brick Chicken was dry and my wife's Rib Eye was well-done (requested medium-rare). This night was a rarity. ALL our previous meals were EXCELLENT. That night, our waitress was really great - we just didn't want the hassle of complaining about the food (we don't expect perfection with any restaurant food - sometimes it is just off the mark)."

"On one of the busiest nights, Christmas Eve, we had a wonderful birthday celebration for my husband. Our server was excellent, Alexis made the evening so special in spite of being very busy. She was engaging, respectful and made our dinner extraordinary."
