Such a great neighborhood gem! I took my mom here for mother's day with a party of seven and they accommodated us beautifully. Great brunch, delicious food and friendly staff. I loved the seating area out back and will definitely be back.

After almost denying a table for 7 in an almost empty restaurant. We sat at the bar waiting for the table. 5 minutes later a table “miraculously “ showed up. Again when we actually sat the place was almost empty. I had made a reservation.
Not going back. Funny games.

Food was decent but honestly not worth the insanely slow service. 40 minutes to get water on the table, 90 minutes for a bloody mary. Food is pretty good but won't be going back.

We had a lovely NYE dinner at Hill Cafe. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating, and the food was great!

Loved it! I asked for a romantic table in my reservation, and they accomodated wonderfully. Had a great time, the staff was very friendly, and the food was excellent. My French girlfriend convinced me to try escargot for the first time here and it was delicious!

The waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very nicely decorated and the outdoor space was fabulous. Wonderful selection of appetizers and main dishes and the cocktails were very good.

The service was awful but the food we ordered was generally good. The grilled veggies with wild rice was especially yummy.

The food was delicious.
My steak was cooked to perfection.
The dessert (Apple tartine) was a delight.
Definitely going to return to Hill Cafe very soon.

I can’t say enough good things about this place the food was really really good the young lady that was serving us was exceptionally hospitable and accommodating considering one of the guests was asking so many questions LOL. I’m definitely going to go back / this time with my husband.👍🏽

This was my second time at hill cafe. It’s a great restaurant with a beautiful back area with couches and nice decor. I had the steak both times which was cooked perfectly and the appetizers are also good (recommend the octopus). The staff is very friendly and the owner/cook Sam is the man. Will be back for sure and soon!

We arrived and they were friendly but the order was wrong. Over easy eggs were hard and cold. Didn’t give us the right sides. Then they brought out wrong sides. We paid for the coffees with a generous tip and left. Disappointing
