Highlands is one of the best restaurants in Birmingham so we went in with very high expectations. When we ate there, we asked if Frank Stitt was at the restaurant because my sister loves to cook. The hostess said he was at Botega that night, so we figured that would be all. Unbeknownst to us, she called him and he... More

After reading a Garden & Gun article about Frank Stitt and Highlands, I knew I wanted to try the restaurant. It was a wonderful evening. The room is comfortable and sort of "clubby." The service was excellent but very "unstuffy." We shared the baked grits appetizer---souffle-like with ham, mushrooms,thyme, and Parmesan sauce. It was delicious. I had the seared sushi-grade...

The service at the bar was excellent and the food was fantastic. Had a little glitch in service at table but did not let that ruin the incredible food which was amazing. We went a little later which I was glad as it started to thin out and wasn't as noisy as it was when we arrived. I'm not "that... More

Exquisite menu and remarkable service from the time we stepped out of our car. Reservations are encouraged for the dinner hour... The Chef has mastered the craft of producing some of the top dishes in the South!

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
