Disappointing I'm afraid. We had various tapas to start which arrived lukewarm and didn't have much flavor. The portion sizes varied a lot too and some were very small. My rib-eye steak wasn't great. It was cooked well and had reasonable flavor but it was tough and fatty and didn't seem to me like a quality cut of beef. My daughter had a vegan cauliflower dish which was hard to eat because the vegetables were under cooked. The other two main courses were okay - but just okay. If you are looking for a vibrant venue for a few drinks and a snack, then it might be the right place - but if you value the quality of your meal then I couldn't recommend 44 Hill Street based on our experience. I should make clear that I did not complain to management - so they did not have a chance to correct anything.

Duck was so over cooked it was like rubber, no floor control and service really poor. I’ve been here a few times and it’s been excellent but tonight was terrible, all round a very poor experience!!

The food was lovely and has lots of potential but think that they are trying to cover too many tables with few staff. They did apologise that they were very behind on our main course (2hours after we walked in) but we also had 35 mins to wait for our second drink, and they forgot to bring ketchup despite being asked. Would be hopeful that we were just unlucky as food and atmosphere was good.

From walking in door staff were friendly, professional and attentive. Food was fresh, full of flavour and varied choices... we opted for a few tapas dishes with bruschetta and sides all to share... the goats cheese balls with lavender honey are divine!

The food was bland, under-seasoned and the service was non existent. The duck was chewy and the accompanying potato side tasted under-cooked and had no flavour. My partner said the same about his burger - it tasted like something from the supermarket. No one once asked how our meal was, not even when collecting plates. I am very unimpressed and wouldn't not recommend.

Yummy meal. I come to Belfast on business every couple of weeks and try a different restaurant each time. This was delicious meal, the restaurant is french influenced so I opted for the duck leg as a main and goat's cheese as a starter - both were perfect. Tasty food, made and served with care.

Service was shocking. Two of the bruschettas came down cremated (mad that the chefs thought it was grand to dress then on top of it).
Said to the blonde girl and the look of pure disgust at us was incredible. Lifted it all up with out saying anything and when she came back fired it down on the table and didn’t even make eye contact.
First time ever any of us asked for the 10% service charge to be taken off at the end (which they added on for a table of 4 😑).
Won’t dine here again but will dine out on how awful the service was for years to come.
