Hillstone - Denver Ratings and Reviews
Even if you have a reservation, this res ...
Even if you have a reservation, this restaurant is usually mobbed and the parking lot is filled up by noon. I highly recommend to go after 1:15 for lunch. It took us 20 minutes to park for a 12:30 lunch reservation and we waited 20 minutes for a table. Food is good. Best trout in town!

I arrived prior to my dining companion and was seated at the time of our reservation. Hostess brought me water (as I requested) - and - then after about 10 minutes - I had to ask another server if she was my server - as no one had come to the table to inquire if I wanted anything while waiting. My server was eventually located - and - I ordered an appetizer to enjoy while I was waiting. After that - server was more attentive. My dining companion did have to send his pork chop back - as it was undercooked. Server left his baked potato (moving it to side plate) while she took pork chop back to kitchen on large plate to be further cooked. When pork chop was returned (cooked properly) my companion remarked that he was surprised they did not cook a new pork chop - but - instead took his pork chop with 1 bite out - and cooked it more. He's in the restaurant business - and remarked that he was surprised they would put a pork chop that had a bite taken out (cut out with knife & fork ... not a 'true' bite) - on the grill to be recooked (with other food on the grill). Noise level was extremely loud when I first arrived - as young family (4-top) with VERY UNRULY children (not restaurant's fault) was seated near our table. Thankfully - they left shortly after I was seated.

When we arrived the restaurant was about 15 minutes behind on our reservations, which was a concern because we were on a tight schedule. However, the food arrived in a timely fashion once we were seated. The service was great. The food was cooked perfectly. What else is there to say?

Service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious, we had ribs, the red fish special, and a cheeseburger. The spinach dip was good and they automatically brought more chips without our asking when we ran out.

The only negative we have ever had for this restaurant is that there are only 2 tables for 6 and they are not flexible. So if we come and bring our adult children we can not sit together because there are 7 of us.

We love Hillstone. Feels indulgent every time we go. The Warm Bread Plate, Grilled Artichoke, Thai Tuna Roll, Thai Steak & Noodle Salad, Kale Salad, Crab Cakes & the French Dip are go to favorites. Live music and/or sports on the TV screen @ the bar accomodate all our needs! Top rate service & their own parking lot are reasons that make it a no-brainer to frequent this comfortable spot.

My husband and I split the rib dinner often. Dec 29 was so crowded and hectic and we decided to not go to HIllstone during the holidays in the future. We had a reservation and waited an additional 30 minutes for a table. The food is delicious and service good but we prefer less energy. The bar area was packed, standing room only. A good sign of a popular restaurant. We'll be back.

My wife and I love the Hillstone in Winter Park, so we had to try the Cherry Creek location. Similar menus with variations that make it unique while still keeping the Hillstone quality and feel, we loved it! The shrimp macadamia sushi was delicious, and the veggie burger my wife had was great too. We will be back whenever we are in the Denver area.

One of the very best restaurants in Cherry Creek, if not all of Denver. Every item I've ever ordered there has been excellent: Especially the rack of ribs. And I think the lighting during dinner service, and overall ambiance, is truly exceptional!

Being a regular to Houston's in Boca Raton, Ft Lauderdale and Los Angeles, we knew that you can't go wrong with Hillstone restaurants. We were right. Slight name differences on the menu, but the taste/flavor were similar. Perfect experience.Our favorites cocktails are Cosmopolitan, Manhattan with Knob Creek and Pork Ribs(Campfire Ribs), kale salad, sushis...

Wow! First time guests there Sunday evening and we were not disappointed! The restaurant is beautiful, the ambiance is perfect and the live music is an incredible touch! We were greeted with such hospitality from all members of the service team as we walked through their open kitchen and then had the pleasure of Jamie, the manager getting us sat. We told her it was our first time and asked for her recommendations. She perfectly described each item we asked and although she tempted us with sushi we ultimately decided with the Brussel sprouts starter, which was fabulous! Then minutes later a sushi roll got dropped at our table! We thought it was a mistake but the young waitress informed us it was on them as a thank you for being first time guests. Incredible touch Hillstone! Your managers and service team sure know how to treat a guest!

Consistently excellent. Filet cooked exactly as I requested. Cocktails served promptly and mixed right.
We've been enjoying the Hillstone Group's restaurants for 30+ years, starting with Houston's (Dallas, Florida, etc), then Hillstone, then Cherry Creek Grill, and the one near San Jose - can't remember name.

Table was 25 minutes delayed; waiter was aggressive; emphasis was on "turning " table not on patron satisfaction-table cloth was removed while we were seated. Disappointing experience as compared to two prior visits.

Enjoyed the comfort food. It was a great atmosphere with very attentive staff. Seems to cater to an older more sophisticated crowd. Good selection of alcohol and the menu covered many areas. The prices seemed reasonable.

I always enjoy going to Hillstone for a special occasion. The staff is always on top of our tables needs without ever being over present. The food is exceptional and the grilled Brussel Sprouts were to die for.
Thank you for adding so much to this special occasion.

Hillstone is such a cozy gem! We've dined here many times and it has never disappointed. Imagine being invited into the home of your kindest friend for dinner, and that's Hillstone. Impeccable service (and never a wait when you have a reservation), great live jazz, easy drinks and delicious food. It's the sort of place where you feel like you can really kick back, while the service/food is still being at the top of its game. Many thumbs up!
