This delicious restaurant is tucked back from route 9W. There is plenty of parking and they have added several features since I was there last. They have an outdoor tent to hold events and also have a little water fall area. The food was very good. We had the peppers and the zucchini flowers as... read more

Amazing meals! Lots of attention to detail. Sitting at the bar for drinks and apps was perfect. Claire was right on! The grounds are landscaped beautifully!

A nice out in the country location that is pretty good. A bit pricey for the area, but the food was tasty. The wine selection though is not very varied and we would have liked to have seen other choices besides chardonnay for bottles of wine. We are still wondering why the name is The Would??

This restaurant tucked away in Highland, NY has high quality seasonal dishes that are absolutely satisfying. Their drinks are equally creative, always a tasty cocktail menu. Ask the knowledgeable staff which main dish they recommend. My short ribs were melt in your mouth tender. Wonderful winter ambience as we had a table by the fireplace. An excellent time all around!

Food and staff was excellent.This time was slightly different. Staff was excellent. The food was good but was not in line with the price. Unfortunately we will probably not go back. There... More

We were recommended by a friend to go to this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The bar was well stocked with all our favorite things and the bar tender was very good. The restaurant was clean and very warm and inviting. The hostess was amazingly helpful and friendly. I love fish and find it always hard to get my favorite... More

The entire experience was wonderful. We were warmly welcomed, seated, and much attention paid to our group! The food was fabulous, well prepared and tasted great. The decor has been newly renovated. Everything looks crisp, clean and very modern! Fun time for all!

Even sitting at the bar for a hamburger (one of the best even if it is not on the menu) or taking a group out to celebrate. We love coming to the WOULD. I am so happy to have them in our little town. A creative menu with the freshest local ingredients as well as good comfort food.

We were greeted by a hostess wearing a training outfit. The decor was very dated, large panels og something that looked like aluminum foil in the ceiling. The lighting was flat and cold. That being said we had a friendly waiter, the cocktails were good as was the food and wine list. I had a very nice Tuna, ordered rare,... More
