An amazing experience with delicious food and drinks. Staff are truly exceptional and take care to every attention to detail.
They make you feel at home! Everyone says hello. Manager and others stopped by to make sure we were good. Food is top notch. Great atmosphere too. Will go back there again and again and again.
Always a great place to go with friends.
Amazing wine list.
A great local spot in Closter with good food, service and ambience. We'll definitely go back again!
Dinner was delicious. Food was presented beautifully. The ambience was also so nice. Service was attentive. We will definitely eat here again.
We had an amazing meal at The Hill! We had raw oysters as well as a baked oyster app, which was absolutely delicious. Other apps we had were the ceviche, and shishito peppers. For entrées we had the lamb tagine and the short ribs mac and cheese, both of which were absolutely to DIE for. For dessert, we had the chocolate strawberry cake, the limoncello tiramusu, and the cookies and cream cheesecake, which were also fantastic. The restaurant itself was so gorgeous too. A dressy yet casual environment that is as cozy and elegant as an upscale ski lodge. I can't wait to go back!!
Worst Experience ever I have ever been.
The foods what are ordered were came on every one hour.
Very unpleasant restaurant ever.
Great service, amazing food!
Such great food and incredible service. Currently our favorite place. The NuYu cocktail is awesome. Fish tacos are amazing.
It was a very nice environment. But the food wasn’t good. The ceviche was over done, it looks like they prepare their food in advanced
This is a perfect place for a delicious meal. Our server, Jeff, made a Wednesday night dinner a fabulous experience. He was personal, accommodating and overall everything you want in a server. We will be returning often!
It was good. Not anything I would rush back for.
Had a great experience from start to finish. Everyone was very friendly. Frank is very good at this job!
Went primarily for the band which was playing there, however, found all the people who worked there to be extremely friendly and professional. The drinks and food were excellent, although a bit pricey , but you get what you pay for. Enjoyed the evening totally.
As much as I wanted to love the Hill, I just didn't. I'd been to the space when it was Harvest and remember loving the room and ambiance. However, the service was lacking, the food mediocre and for the price point there are far better restaurants around. We ordered the soft shell crab special, the duck medallions, the tagging and the brick chicken. For apps we had oysters(hard to mess those up!), the ceviche and the arugula salad. Both the salad and the duck were over dressed with a balsamic glaze that I could have purchased at Trader Joe's. The ceviche was bland and the brick chicken was boring. The tagine was tasty and everyone passed it around the table. Drinks and desserts, were eh, as was the Hill overall.
We went in August, Once we arrived we were immediately greeted by Frank, the General Manager, and promptly seated. The inside is very clean, welcoming, and quite. There is gorgeous, massive fireplace that commands the room that is probably amazing in the fall/winter. Frank and the wait staff were quick, friendly, very knowledgeable of the menu, and very engaging and reminded me of the professional staff found in France. They were not pushy or trying to get another cover on the table, they periodically checked in with us as the night went on. The food was great. Solid plating, presentation and taste. Menu is a bit limited but, that is to be expected due to COVID. What is on the menu is 5 star. We had the Fish Tacos and the Roasted Duck. Both were the perfect portion. As for the duck, probably the best I have had in the region. The Blueberry Jus really made the plate. We are looking forward to returning soon.
Decided to bring my wife to The Hill for her birthday dinner. The initial reception was warm and friendly, the service was efficient and accommodating and the food was esquiset.
Frank and Lauren were great and made our special occasion memorable.
Needless to say, we will be back soon!
Low quality , the servers have no experience at all.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Always consistently good!
Service was great, everyone was so friendly. Drinks came quick and food was great too
To give this restaurant 5 stars feels like I’m undercutting the true value of the experience my wife and I had. The food was incredible, and I have to call out the Mac n’ cheese specifically because it was out of this world GOOD! The service was exceptional. The dinning area was elegant and comforting and really added to the overall experience.
We found a true gem close to home in this restaurant and will recommend to all our friends and family in the area. We cannot wait to go back!
Welcoming. Friendly. Super accommodating.
Excellent food And service. It is our go to restaurant.
Always a wonderful experience at The Hill! Great band last night and wonderful food and service.
We went to see the musicians we knew that were playing. Great place to hear music, food very good but priced accordingly. Full meal for 2 with drinks or desert and your over $100
Service and food were excellent. Server and manager were attentive and friendly.
The food was amazing. My husband debated between the duck special and the lamb tagine. He went with the tagine and said it was wonderful. I had the scallops special which was also delicious. The servers were very attentive. We have never eaten there before but definitely plan to go back!!
The food was warm and tasty but the coffee and cappuccino were cold, which was strange. Our waiter was friendly and attentive but forgot spoons for our coffee.
Experience and service were great. I appreciate Frank, the manager, taking the time to actually read what the special occasion was and acknowledged it.
Great food and drinks. Very well done and great experience.
very welcoming atmosphere and excellent food
we will definitely be back
Wonderful find! Delicious meal and friendly staff. Will definitely go back!!
Wonderful except whose idea was it to do patio renovations during dinner? So noisy!
Danny was our server. Very kind and knowledgeable. Asked him what days he worked bc alone coming back for food I we could come back for him. Delicious and great experience for me an my wife especially for her birthday 🙏🏽
Restaurant is beautiful but the food tasted like out of the box for the most part. If you go to restaurants for great food, this is not the right place.
Amazing service and great ambiance - we were surprise to find such a gem in sleepy surburbia. Food is great though not huge selection portions are generous. We enjoyed it very much and will be coming back for more…
Lovely people and setting. Food just OK.
Went for brunch. The food was excellent. The service was excellent - from hostess to servers (multiple) to food runners and bar staff. Manager stopped by to introduce himself and check-in on us. We sat in the bar and there were only four other tables seated so I was able to converse with my daughter with ease. A great restaurant has great food, but is also a great experience. That is what we had. Will come again for dinner with friends. (Make sure someone in your party orders the tagine - it was at lest as good as Cafe Mogodor in the city).
We LOVED our night! Everything from the ambience, service, cocktails and courses was spectacular! Can’t wait to come back!
