I had a meeting in the area around lunchtime and when I mapped out my route, I saw a notation for Hillstone (Houston's to me--thanks for avoiding the calorie count) on Google Maps. When I lived in the NYC area, I was a frequent visitor...More

We picked this restaurant for lunch because it is the closest sit-down restaurant to Pier 33 for our cruise to Alcatraz. Location was ideal. Food service was very good and attentive. Food quality was rather average. I had the Crispy Chicken Sandwich and the soup...More

Just made a return visit to Hillstone. Arrived early and the bartender steered me to a good chardonnay. It was the Fourth of July but the front-desk woman handled the crowd well – though I was a walk-in, we got our table as promised. My...More

Enjoyed another Sunday lunch...this time, ordered Thai Noodle Salad with roasted chicken. It can also be ordered with steak. Includes avocado, mango, peanuts, fresh herbs. I requested no extra spice, sometimes Thai is too spicy for me. This ample noodle dish is delicious. I think...More

This is a smart brasserie near enough to Pier 33/ the attractions of Fisherman's Wharf but set back so that it is without the massive number of tourists. Service was attentive and the food was delicious. If I have only one suggestion/ criticism: why is...More

Love this place even though their part of a chain! They nail service and all appear to work as a team picking up, delivering and checking on tables outside their own.

Came in late from the Night Alcatraz Tour, and the Hillstone restaurant was just across the road. So we decided it would do.. Had great service from the waitress and didn't have to wait long for the food. Servings were generous and we enjoyed our...More

Two trips to San Francisco lately and dined at the Hillstone for lunch on both trips. Food and service have been outstanding both times. Rosemary bread as an appetizer was delicious and the trout entree was fabulous. Servers are very professional and attentive. Highly recommend...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
