The service was attentive and knowledgeable. It was a special occasion and we were warmly greeted. The staff helped select a wine that enhanced the meal. All the food was very good, but my lamb could have been a little warmer. This is my favorite restaurant in the area.
Frank is very accommodating , on top of solid service and staff support , and delivers a really nice dining experience.
Love this restaurant, food is delish & beautifully served. Servers very attentive and friendly. Cozy yet upscale feel.
Amazing food and service!
This was our second visit, one of my favorite places now.
Manager was so friendly & helpful with excellent recommendations. Great ambience. Excellent service. Interesting menu.
It was amazing! We’re regulars. We love it here, we celebrate our anniversary here all the time!
Beautiful ambiance. Amazing service.
Food was amazing as well, especially the starters and the sides.
I look forward to returning.
Second time we celebrate family member birthday. We truly enjoyed!
Nice local place to go out
Very good food and service
Great all around experience.
Good always excellent
Good ambiance and great service
Made reservations for an early New Year’s Eve dinner. We arrived at 6 pm and were promptly seated. Atmosphere was great and we admired the new glass-enclosed deck, which was almost completed. We ordered shrimp cocktail and the arugula salad for shared appetizers and they were excellent.
My daughter had the bolognese (dinner portion), my husband had the halibut special and I had the fish tacos. All very tasty and the truffle fries topped everything off perfectly!! Drinks were great and the atmosphere was cozy and fun. So glad there wasn’t a fixed menu for the evening. Love dining here!!
We brought our kids in at 5:30 on NYE for dinner. It wasn’t our first time but it was the first time with kids. We were welcomed so warmly! Will definitely return again with and without kids.
Great spot in Closter. Upmarket ski lodge feel inside, food & service excellent.
Great little place. Prompt and courteous service. Beet salad appetizer was great, as was the mac & cheese (but let's face it -- has anyone ever had BAD mac & cheese?). For main courses, the Moroccan style lamb tagine was delicious, rich, and filling, and the steak was grilled to perfection. For dessert we shared an oreo cheesecake, also excellent. No complaints at all -- the place deserves it's "top 30 in NJ" listing. We'll be back, perhaps to sit out on the patio when it warms up a bit.
Amazing experience! Their shrimp and polenta cake special is to die for! Everyone is warm, inviting and extremely attentive. Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding. Perfect cocktails. Great pulse. Young guy, who was the singer for the evening, was perfection.
Great service. Creative chef. Will return.
We celebrated my 81st birthday. The food was excellent, particularly the slow-cooked halibut. This was topped by a glass of Kistler Chardonnay. We have returned to this restaurant and recommend it for special dining.
Food was amazing. We sat late and the service was a bit off, but highly recommend.
Although the food was outstanding, I was overcharged, two times, for drinks on this visit. The first time, I dismissed it as an innocent oversight when two bourbon drinks showed up on our bill that we never ordered. The waitress removed them from the bill. Upon her return with the revised bill, I noticed were were then charged 2x for our vodka drinks. The waitress explained this as an upcharge for premium vodka. (Tito's) Why would I be charged double the price for premium? This upcharge was removed, but it took the waitress a half hour to return with our revised bill. I will not be going back to the Hill.
Hello Dawn, I'm so sorry we were not able to communicate the pricing for your drinks effectively. I will work with my team to address that. I am looking at your bill and am certain that there must have been a miscommunication which I would be happy to clear up for you. We charge $10 for a standard drink with 2oz. Tito's(i.e. vodka soda). There is a $3 upcharge for a martini which has between 3 and 4 oz, depending on the drink. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
Went to celebrate birthday and it went great! Waitress was amazing! Drinks were good but food was amazing! Had a great time and will definitely be back!! 🥳
Our first time here and it was a nice dining experience! An eclectic menu, with very good food and service.
Dines her a bunch of tunes and keep coming back. Everything is fantastic
This is one of my favorite restaurants the food is amazing never disappoints. Chef Ben is second to none., Michelin rated and well deserved. The drinks are original, difficult to pick just one.
We have been coming here for years and most recently they hired Frank as the Maitre’d. His charisma and attention to detail truly elevate the fine dining experience. LOVE the HILL!!!
Had to send meal back to heat
Salad was good but main dish arrive not cooked (fish) and everything was very salty. Has to go ho after and eat my left overs from the night before that was better.
We had a great dinner at The Hill. We were two couples and everyone enjoyed everything from appetizers to dessert. We never felt rushed and our server, Stephanie was great. :)
Beautifully designed space with features to allow for a superior dining experience, i.e., high ceilings, spacing of tables, large windows, fireplace; food is exceptional, and the focus on excellent service is most welcomed! Highly recommend!
Great food, wine and service. Beautiful cozy dining area
Not only was the food and service incredible but the thoughtfulness that went into honoring the birthday reservation put the experience over the top. Will absolutely be coming back!
Food, cocktails, and service all outstanding. In addition, Frank made special efforts to ensure that this family reunion from up and down the East Coast went off without a hitch. THANK YOU!!!
I recommended The Hill for a group of friends and I am so glad I did. Everyone loved their meal and even made room for yummy desserts.
Awesome place for get together
Excellent night out!
Very disappointed with this restaurant. After a mediocre meal,I was followed to the parking lot asking where my payment was. Handled in a very disturbing manner. Won’t be back.
Fabulous atmosphere. Delicious food. Exceptional services
Love this place!! Excellent food and service. I can't wait to go back!

Always a great meal. The Hill was crowded and fun....
