We went here for our anniversary based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was superb and the service was excellent. I can see why the chef has won the awards that we read about. This is a must if you want a nice dinner and a pleasant setting.

This restaurant always delivers on food and service! I love that their menu changes to feature seasonal dishes! I started with a watermelon margarita with a salted rim. They use fresh squeezed watermelon! We also tried one of the seasonal appetizers with eggplant that was just as fresh and tasty. For our entrees, we chose lamb and rabbit. The lamb... More

Wonderful food and atmosphere!! Can be loud and is often chilly as well. We have been 3 times in the last 2 years and 2 out of 3 were wonderful. On one visit my food was all very salty!! But overall this is a very good restaurant!!

We ate at this highly regarded restaurant for our wedding anniversary this year. It had been several years since we'd been here and in the meantime, we had tried other high end restaurants for special meals. From now on we'll just go back to Highlands Bar and Grill. The meal, service and atmosphere are all outstanding. It's pricey, but worth... More

We tried to get a reservation a year ago while visiting and were not successful. This time we were determined and sat at the bar. Great experience and the bar staff did an excellent job taking care of our every need. The cocktails.... Wow... Wonderfully prepared and tasty. We ordered dinner and had fired oysters, the vegetable entree and the... More

My wife and I went back to Highland for the first time in several years. We are not local residents. The food and service were excellent. The server had not been there long but was on top of everything from knowing details about the entire menu, wine selection to making sure we were taken care of and anticipating what we... More

For those new to town or from out of town, this is as good as it gets anywhere in the U.S. Frank Stitt is amazing, Pardus his wife is amazing and the restaurant... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed a first meal at Highlands Bar and Grill for our 31st anniversary. My long wait to eat here paid off - first rate all the way!
