Overall our first visit was great. The food and service were very good. The only negative would be the steep corkage fee for bringing your own wine.

We'd heard great things about Frank Stitt's amazing cooking and we certainly weren't disappointed. The restaurant is warm & welcoming, festive in hundreds of Christmas lights on the outside. On the inside service was professional and attentive. The food was simply marvelous. The shrimp bisque was incredibly rich & hearty, with an intense, velvety consistency. The foie was also a...

While there are a couple of other Birmingham restaurants that approach the quality of Highlands, no other restaurant can match their consistency at turning out incredible meals night after night.

We arrived just in time for our 9:15pm reservation and were promptly seated in the bar area at a cozy table. We were quickly greeted by Justin and had our drink orders taken. If you have the chance - ask for Justin. This was our first time and although we knew what we wanted food-wise (the Drumfish was superb), Justin... More

The sister restaurant of Bottega, this is a classic, delicious dining spot. Chef Frank Sitt is a genius, always unique yet very classic! Great "date night" restaurant!!

Go to place when you want to thoroughly enjoy every bite; especially enjoy after the symphony from coffee and dessert (go quickly; they are getting close to shutting down mode then, so dessert only & get there quickly. While it's not cheap, you won't regret going.

Disappointing trip to a notable restaurant that we have visited often in the 30 years since it opened. We waited 20 minutes for a bottle of wine, 40 minutes for appetizers (the bar had a lot of oyster customers), and an additional half hour for the food. HB&G was not crowded. The wait staff seemed disorganized. The ladies had tenderloins... More
