The service was ok. We never got bread. The food coming out of the kitchen was very slow. Shouldn’t take close to two hours for 2 people. Food was very good-once we got it.
As a local real estate broker, I take my clients out to dinner when we sell their house. Most often, when given a choice, they choose the Hilltop. It has been consistently good and we always have a great time.
Food and ambiance was delightful. Noise level was a bit high, kitchen seemed slow in getting orders out.
Went for the Monday night prime rib special.
Special thank you to Cassidy our server. We eat out at least once a week and to be honest it seems like it’s been a long while since we have had the customer service level that we received from her.
Just a lovely restaurant. Everyone is warm and friendly and the food is delicious. Fantastic steaks!!
Food took 50 minutes to get to the table, they forgot a dish, then delivered it over cooked. Server had far too many tables and wasn’t attentive. No steak knives, water, drinks left empty. Manager bought the over cooked dish which was the right thing to do and we appreciated it. Others food was terrific. This is the most inconsistent restaurant and it’s the best spot in Novato - they can do better. The bar is always inviting and busy. There is one cocktail waitress to avoid. So Roll the dice in the restaurant or go for a drink at the bar at sunset.
We went on a Friday night during Mardi Gras week so the bar area was really bustling. There were a few specials on the menu and I got the jambalaya which had chicken, shrimp, and lots of sausage. It was a little spicy but it was delicious. I couldn't finish all of mine. My husband got the blackened catfish which came with veggies and mashed potatoes. It was good but he wished it were a bit more spicy. I washed mine down with a hurricane drink so it was a great ending to a great meal. The view is always beautiful up there and the service is always attentive. We've been here several times and have never been disappointed.
Lovely spot on top of a hill with nice views. Friendly service, good place for a special, midweek birthday lunch. No reservations needed then. I enjoyed my salmon and my father his ahi tuna.
The only downside to the lunch was the fact that my 87 yo father, who likes to have bread with his meals, specifically asked for some bread from the waiter when his food was brought to the table. The waiter responded that he would heat some up and then bring it for him. It never arrived. By the time we realized it wasn’t coming, it was too late to ask for it.
It is such a small thing, but it mattered for the overall experience
Our reservations were great. We had a round table as requested. Food was delicious . We ordered several different dishes and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We would go
there for lunch again.
