This restaurant is by far one of the best places in Boston. Food is consistently good, service is always great, prices are fair and it has a lively welcoming feel. Love to seat at the bar and order different apps, just went two nights ago, had the blue point oysters, the rib gnocchi, calamari, the fritters( oh wow!!!).... The bartenders... More

Everyone in our party had an excellent meal. The place was busy but we didn't feel rushed. It's hard to blame a place for being busy- what can they do? -Offer you an excellent drink and a jukebox. All around scrumptious.

Highland Kitchen is in a good spot outside of the hustle and bustle of Davis Square in Somerville. They have a great menu that is quite tasty. If you are looking for something a little different, this is the spot. It is reasonably priced but they do not take reservations, so try and go at off times to assure you... More

I have been hearing about the place for months....I know now what all the hype is about. This place is so amazing. Great food, atmosphere, prices and drinks. One of my new favorites for sure.

Staying in Somerville at a friend's place & found this place via trip advisor. Friendly staff, FULL bar and restaurant. Waited a pleasant 30 minutes on a table. Brussel sprout app was ok but a bit heavy on the wing sauce. My old boy loved the coconut curried goat stew. The cheese burger was good with excellent fries on the... More

I live around the corner from this place and it is always packed, so I decided to check it out. My friend and I walked in around 6pm on a Saturday and there was an hour wait for a table. We figured we would just grab a seat at the bar once someone left, but then we learned there was... More

I've visited here a few times both with family and friends. Each time we've gone at around 6:30PM and had to wait 30+ minutes .. but the food and beer have been worth it each time. If it is nice weather there are benches outside that you can watch the world go by, or you can get a drink at... More

I went here for a belated birthday dinner for a friend. The staff was friendly, there were many vegetarian options and while the restaurant was busy we didn't wait too long and we didn't feel rushed.

My favorite restaurant in Somerville! I love everything about Highland Kitchen. I've eaten here many, many times and always had an excellent time with delicious food. I really appreciate how their menu has meals of all sizes, ranging from great little snacks to full entrees and everything in between. I high recommend the gnocchi with short rib ragu, caesar salad,... More

The decor is cool and fun. The web site is cool and fun. The food is cool and fun. It's good here. Better if you're with a group as they don't seem to immediately understand the notion of the single diner. It's just not that kind of place. (They're still nonplussed, but easier about it if you go in on... More
