"My parents took me here for the first time while I was in town visiting them a few weeks ago. We sat on the patio and the view is totally amazing! And of course it helped that the weather was absolutely perfect. The food was good but I have to admit the view, (outside) ambience and service was better. I think the outside seating is much prettier than the inside. I'll most definitely come back. My parents really like this restaurant - they're locals."
"Others have said it, but it bears repeating: the view is stunning. We began the evening at the outdoor bar and enjoyed talking with the very welcoming bartender. My snow crab was delicious, and when my entree arrived later than my companion's, the restaurant graciously comped our desserts. We don't live nearby, but if we did, we'd be regulars here."
"I always enjoy sitting outside, great view, and most importantly great food every time."
Tricia Gray-Ketter, 8/15/17
"What an unexpected beautiful surprise! We are not from the area and one of my sons had looked online for a place close to the hotel to go for dinner. We sat on the outside deck to eat, it was a ta chilly but the view was too gorgeous to go inside. We viewed the sunset and it was just lovely. The staff were all professional and friendly and the food was superb. We couldn't resist sharing tastes with each other and each dish was excellent. If I were to ever get up that way again I will make it a point to stop in again. Thank you for a fantastic evening."

"If you are looking for one of the most bucolic views of the Chemung River Valley looking towards the Palisades, delicious menu and excellent cocktails - in Western New York, there's only one such place - Hill Top Restaurant! Of places you normally go to eat this is one you go to for a leisure Dining From flip flops and shorts to evening dresses and suits the staff and owners make everyone comfortable."

"Thank you Hill Top! Highly recommend for large group events! Especially class reunions!"

"Hill Top Inn is a gem nestled in Elmira,NY. The view of the city is spectacular & their upkeep of the property is stellar. An added bonus when you get a great sunset or even fireworks from the Pioneers games! They're always changing the menu based on industry trends, while keeping true to what the regulars love. What really draws me back to this restaurant is the staff. Always so warm & welcoming, it's a family atmosphere. Mike & Jeremie are the best, love this place & I will continue to support & recommend this great establishment"
