Hill & Dale is a Mexican restaurant bar located in Lower Manhattan in New York City. Hill & Dale is an interesting place, having derived its name from the earliest method of recording in which grooves of varying depths were etched into a phonograph, which became known as the "hill and dale" method. Hill & Dale is a celebration of this early time of music and has decorated its entire restaurant to be homage to this golden age of recording.

Guests won't find any large plates here, as the majority of the menu is meant for snacking in between sips of a cool drink. Popular items include a portobello risotto ball with spicy tomato sauce, chicken or pork tacos, and a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. Looking for a unique cocktail? Go for the Smoky Joe with mezcal, lime, simple syrup, cilantro, and a chili lime zest rim.

good food - but very little - expensive for what you get.

We went to Hill & Dale for the first time for brunch. It was fun. Young ambiance. Attentive service. Food was very good. I would like to go back for dinner soon.

The food is really rich without being heavy but couple it with the mimosas and its night night for me. I've only been for brunch and always with a crowd. We all try each others dishes and we have enjoyed everything. Definitely a good restaurant to try out. I even traveled from NJ to explore.

The brunch my friends and I ordered was amazing and the cocktails/mimosas were also amazing, but our food took an hour and a half to come out! That's no exaggeration, we ordered our food around 1:10pm and food came out around 2:35! That's insane! Besides that the waitress was so sweet and food was great!

Went there for the first time with a friend on a Wednesday night. It was not very crowded which was great and they had live musicians in the back performing, but they piped the music through all the speakers throughout the bar and restaurant. Kind of wish they kept it contained to the back bar area, but oh well. Great casual decor and good food.

I went to this place because I had a deal and was a bit disappointed at first because the menu was much smaller than I had remembered. However the choices they had were good! The waitress helped us to decide and we had the omelette and baked eggs both of which were good! The service was good and the restaurant is really cute and quaint!

I'm from out of town and found this place on Gilt City. It was an incredible deal and the food/drinks were outstanding. I highly recommend it.

One of the worst restaurant experiences I've had in NYC: poor food, poor service, this place will not survive (nor does it deserve to).
