    I had the Macho salad and the roasted chicken. One of the best tasting and perfect chicken dishes I've ever had. Mashed potatoes tasted like they had just made them when I ordered them.

    The best prime rib in LA (better than Lawry's). If you're feeling dessert go for the banana cream pie!

    Get the dip duo, shrimp cocktail and poke to start. Their Caesar Salad has cornbread croutons! Awesome! I liked their enchiladas and trip tip combo. All of their desserts were good too!

    Everything is amazing, per the usual at Hillstone restaurants. The Tomato, Beet, & Burrata is a must as a starter or a light entree. Steaks are cooked to perfection. Plus, live jazz nightly!
