There was one group that was quite loud so that affected my mark The room was chilly but once the fireplace was turned on, everyone warmed up . Very nice menu selections and wine to go with. Second time there so happy with the consistency and food quality. Outdoor patio had heaters so dont hesitate as it has good ambiance.

Hillside is the perfect place for dinner. The food, wine and service were great. We sat on the covered patio and enjoyed the ambience of this adorable winery. We shared four small plates and the food was delicious, dessert was even better.

This winery restaurant has a menu that is not overly ambitious (a good thing), and we enjoyed the light meal we had — particularly the halibut main. We also liked the elegant muscat white wine. Unfortunately the weather turned cooler, so we weren’t able to eat outside. Recommended.

Everything from the food, service, atmosphere and view were outstanding. We had our hearts set on the tomahawk ribeye, and even though they were out of it for the evening, the chef graciously prepared a portion for us - and it did not disappoint. Alexa, our server, was amazing. All around a 10/10 and will definitely be back. Would recommend to all my family and friends.

Our server was could have been a robot and I wouldn't have noticed a difference. Excusable if they were in a rough / stressful situation, otherwise would have loved to see more engagement.

Best creme brule I've ever had since it didn't taste like burnt sugar, perfectly caramelized.

All other food was great. Wines were quality.

Atmosphere was enjoyable and not loud. Beautiful views.

first time having dinner at Hillside -- have stopped in for lunch many times. The dinner menu has more large plates, less sharing options. Still very enjoyable. My husband and I split the bone in pork loin and I loved it altho he thought it was just good. Our friends very much enjoyed their pork belly and scallop dish. We ordered a gorgeous bottle of wine to go with dinner; loved it so much we bought 2 more to take home. Wished we could have done a proper tasting before dinner but tasting hours and dinner service hours don't overlap at all.

The food was AMAZING!!! Coming here is always one of the highlights of our summer. Our waiter was fabulous, the service was great, wine was excellent & we love their patios! The upper patio has a gorgeous view, the lower patio is also nice but no view from there. I would absolutely recommend Hillside Winery. Make sure to make a reservation early, they book up quickly.

It was great. They called ahead to say the upper patio was closed due to smoke and offered us lower patio out or inside. We chose the latter and it was very comfortable. Our waitress Wendy was excellent and well informed regarding the wine and menu. Very good food especially the gnocchi -outstanding.
We had not been since the new chef arrived. Lots of menu choices to try next time

For us the stars of the night were the fresh baked focaccia (highly recommend for any bread lovers), the pork belly & scallops (perfectly cooked with great balance from the pickled cabbage), and the smoked salmon perogies (surprisingly light and delicate flavours paired with salmon roe) , . As far as constructive criticisms go, the pavlova was a bit too sweet for our tastes, the crab mac & cheese was under-seasoned, and using rock crab didn't add as much flavour as dungeness would. Overall still a great dining experience though and would definitely return!

From start to finish Hillside Bistro was an amazing experience! You get hit with an amazing aroma of wine as you walk up to the hostess and see get a peak into the wine making process as you catch a glimpse of the stainless steel fermenting tanks. The menu is small but versatile with not a bad item on it. You can't choose wrong with anything but the bang for buck you get on the 3 course dinner for two and wine paring is incredible. Highly recommend Hillside Bistro to any one looking for the perfect family dinner, friends night or date night.

Had a very disappointing experience. The location is beautiful, the wine excellent, the service friendly, and the little food we had was good quality. However. We booked a dinner for our party on the last night of our vacation. Just after our wine and bread arrived, there was a power cut. The server was very upset when she came to tell us that the kitchen was dark and the chef couldn't cook, and said she "wanted to cry". We sat in the dark on the terrace and finished our wine. Then we saw the table next to us being served hot food (it turns out they were friends of the Chef?). Overall the servers were friendly, and of course the power cut couldn't be helped. But the management handled it very poorly. The management should have made an announcement to the restaurant - but as it was the servers were hung out to dry and seemed unsupported. We were not offered money off our bill as an apology, or even complimentary extra bread as an acknowledgement that it was 9 o'clock and we had to leave without any dinner. Seeing other people served food from an apparently closed kitchen stung. It was clear that the bottom line was the only thing that mattered to the management, and there was no consideration to being hospitable in the bad times as well as the good. (My family owns restaurants so I understand the challenges of the restaurant industry). It left us upset and with the firm conviction that we will never go back, or recommend the restaurant to anyone else. A real shame.
