    When the new owners took over last year, it was a bit of a rocky start. We live in the neighbourhood and decided to try them again. Wow!!!! What a difference!! Excellent menu with fantastic choices! I had the butternut squash to start, and fish tacos. Delicious!!!! Service was impeccable!! Congrats The Hills, you hit it out of the park! We will be regulars going forward! Thank you!

    The first thing my guests noticed was the decor. They mentioned how quaint and beautiful it was. We were met almost immediately upon entering and we were escorted to our ready table. We all commented on the ambience of the restaurant and the noise level was very pleasant, unlike some places where one must raise their voice to be heard across the table. The food presentation was exquisite, along with the flavors and price point. The server was fun, and did her best to accommodate all of our needs. We have already recommended the restaurant to friends and would definitely return.

    Fantastic food and wine and service with a lovely ambience. Very sad that we have only just discovered this hidden gem to find out that the plans to change it to a sports bar are happening at the end of the month. If you have a chance to go here before then, do it!

    If you love prime rib then I guess the meal was ok. The meat was good but the salads were terrible - just an opened bag of mixed lettuce. The hot vegetables were cold. If you wanted dessert- you had to pay extra. The room where the food is set up feels like a cafeteria- no ambiance at all. Very disappointing experience.

    We had an inexperienced server who rarely visited the table. My blackened salmon burger had no spice or flavour at all. Originally my meal was incorrect and then late, and incorrect again. They took it off the bill but perhaps new people in the kitchen and on the floor at the same time isn’t a win-win for the customer. Chocolate tart dessert was not good. The place is lovely aside from this experience. Have had great meals in the past here.

    We were unsure what to expect when we chose to partake in the Thanksgiving Dinner event but were very pleased with everything. After a mix up with our table, which the staff were incredibly apologetic for, the evening was amazing. The food was perfect - a nice mix of traditional meets modern. Absolutely incredible. Staff were outstanding and very attentive.

    Our table was reserved a week in advance and when we arrived found that it was set right beside a large retirement party. When we asked to be seated further away from the noise, we were told that it would only get louder as all 30 people arrived. We were left no choice but to sit outside on the patio. There were no other dinner guests outside, the air was very cool, the metal table and chairs were cold and the table not set. Our dinner cooled off quickly in the night air. Our server was busy inside serving the party guests and we were left unattended. This was a very disappointing dining experience.

    We sat for quite some time while we waited for our server to take our order. Once we gave it to her, it took about another 15 min to receive our drinks. The restaurant had just opened so they weren’t busy yet. It was a different person who finally brought our meals and we never were asked how we were enjoying them. We had to flag our server down for a box and the bill. We eat out frequently so we were very disappointed in the service.

    We visit The Hills patio and restaurant frequently. We have noticed when there is music that it is difficult to have a conversation in the dining room. Perhaps I should’ve checked to see if there was live music last night before I booked our table. We love music, but we also love to spend time with friends we haven’t seen in months and catch up, which was difficult last night. The distraction of the little kids running around didn’t help - there’s not much anybody can do about that, we raised kids and have grandkids - if they want to eat in a nice restaurant, they must learn to sit. If they can’t, perhaps, it’s not the right venue for them. Service was good as usual perhaps a bit slower but we always take into account how many tables she is looking after and we know she is doing her best. Food was good, our one friend is incredibly difficult as he eats ZERO greens so his order was tricky…not the restaurant or server’s fault, he’s just a pain. Aside from his the rest of us enjoyed everything.

    The place is wonderful. The servers seem young and inexperienced. We ordered a Hills salad, which is one of their signature dishes and it was not good. Was missing chickpeas, which it says it includes. After waiting for a while to get the attention of our server, I told her it was not good and missing a key ingredient. She said she would talk to the kitchen, and when we went to pay, all she said was the kitchen said "sorry". The full cost of the salad was still on the bill. Plus...the fries were SO salty I couldn't eat them. I love to support local, but would hope this info would get back to the management so they can make it right.

    Been twice to the Hills both times disappointed with menu items not available. The fish & chips cooked well but the condiments were awful. Tarter sauce terrible. Coleslaw shouldn't have hot sauce in it. Lasagna was mediocre. Also windows should be cleaned more often. Finger prints all over.

    A lovely place for a relaxing lunch. Food and service were good. There was loud hip hop music playing that really was inappropriate since we were ages 70-90. Had to ask the staff to turn it down- they were not too happy to do so. Guess like many places the music is blasting for the young staffers not the diners.

    What a great evening celebrating our anniversary. Staff are so welcoming and made you feel that they were happy you were there. Our waitress Wes lovely. Taking time to explain the wines. She recommended an appy. We really were taken care of. The food was outstanding. Dessert was delicious and complimentary as it was our anniversary. We loved having the live music. We are already planning to go back. I recommend this hidden gem Bob and Sue Livesey

    Food was great. Everyone had a different dish and all were great. I was hoping to get an iced coffee with my meal but was told that wasn’t an option even though it was on the menu. I then asked for a drip coffee and once again was told that wasn’t going to be possible. Then about 45 mins later another table got 4 cups of coffee. I think my party was being taken care of by a new waitress who just needs some more coaching and thorough training to execute on a higher level.

    Our family went for the first time months ago after my daughter went to a birthday party at the Hills. The renovated restaurant was beautiful and cozy. Our waitress was super cute and attentive. The first time our food was quite good, but this time food was mediocre. The nachos didn’t have much cheese, the tofu was very oily (sitting in a puddle of oil), and the fish tacos were quite plain. We might give it one more chance hoping it was just an off night for the food because the rest of the experience was great.

    The ribs were a bit dry and too much BBQ sauce but the rest was good and the lemon lime bar & ice cream was very good. We would have liked a decaf coffee but were told there was none available. Odd when there's a coffee shop in the building. Would have really rounded off the meal nicely.

    This was my first time at The Hills. The whole experience was first class. The first thing that struck me was the warm smiles and friendly greetings. The dinners were excellent for quality and quantity and came hot (essential, but frquently not so at other restaurants.) The kitchen staff actually brought our food out. A nice touch! The prices for the food and wine were very fair. There was no sense of "bums rush". All this in a beautiful setting. A very well run establishment. Back soon, for sure. I have no connection to the restaurant or golf club. Very attentive friendly staff.
