Visited Hillstone before our Alcatour. We sat at the bar and our bartender Oliver was amazing! He made us delicious cocktails and was very personable. 3 of us shared the Spinach and Artichoke dip, which is larger then it looks. It is a bit on...More

great place to go after going to Alcatraz. Overall the experience was good though service could have been a bit better as there was no wifi for guests the burger was great and very filling

Our concierge recommended that we have lunch near Pier 33 before our Alcatraz tour. The food and service was very good. I had the French dip and my wife had the chicken tenders. I would highly recommend either one! The only drawback is that they...More

Hillstone is a best-in-class American bistro with a combination of casual-elegance and outstanding food and service. Our dinner was superb from start to finish, beginning with the wine, live music and starters. Savory chicken, best cooked red cabbage every, and my son's ribs reminded us...More

Walking along the Embarcadero, we came across Hillstone, opposite Pier 33 and decided to have dinner there. We started out with a cocktail at the bar whilst we waited for our table. We received the kind of upbeat, professional and attentive service American restaurants are...More

Always great service, always awesome food, and the location is just far enough away from the overrun tourists spots. Love the live music also.

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.
