Closed for business. New ownership not yet in place. Few details available. Stay tuned for details. This location has struggled since original owners left some years ago.

After many years of going to the Hillview Grill nearly every visit to Sarasota, I can say that this is no longer on my list. Our last several visits have been disappointing. Certain menu items we loved are no longer on the menu. Service is...More

The place has a lovely atmosphere, the tapenade that they bring at no charge with the warm rolls is just the best. The waitress gave us excellent service and was friendly.

We have been fortunate enough to have stayed at the Zoetry Paraiso & Zoetry Agua Punta Cana and are interested in making reservations for this Zoetry as well. I've noticed several comments about lack of hot water and the Jacuzzi's on the balconies not working. Have these issues been resolved? Also, is it our responsibility to provide transportation from the airport to the Port in order to board the yacht or does someone meet us at the airport? Thanks so much for your response! Kathryn
