Wonderful presentation of all food with delectable flavors one can only imagine. A bit pricey but well worth it. If you love chocolate, order the cake but make sure you have a friend as it is enought for a family of four. The cesear salad at lunch time is excellent and their fried calamari cant be beat. Nice wine and... More

Heard wonderful things about The Heights. My husband and I went there for dinner. The server was very nice and knowledgeable. Wines by the glass were expensive, but they are very generous pours. Wine list was great. Lots to choose from. We both started with appetizers. I had the Roasted Cauliflower app. It was terrible; I ended up sending it... More

Food is a gift to your pallets, so do you pallets a favor and go there, they are a tad expensive though so make sure you're ready for that; both food and wine. But the food is excellent.

The Heights, under the masterful hand of Chef James Larounis, is excellent! Compares to any NYC best, the food is unparralled.

Pre-ordered the Super Bowl wings but could not wait until Sunday! Delicious! Even my wife who NEVER eats wings loved them! My favorite place to eat, they make me feel welcome, the staff is always wanting to please. We love to bring friends to The Heights who have never eaten there, they always leave very impressed and stuffed full of... More

We ate dinner at Heights in January 2014. First, the good part. Our waitress was great, very helpful and pleasant. The ambiance was relaxing and tasteful. The bathroom was very clean. There was a large selection of wines, many by the glass. The duck entree was tasty but needed to ask for more sauce. The bread was so-so. The pizza... More

A fantastic lunch or dinner (pricy for dinner) spot. My husband and I try to get a lunch here once a month. This past week we were both singing the praises of our meals. I typically always get the same item, caesar salad with flatbread and grilled shrimp, but this time tried a seasonal dish and was WOWED! The raviolis... More

Food is good, menu eclectic but there is always something not quite right- a forgotten order of bread or cold coffee or something. Maybe my expectations are as high as the prices so I am usually a little disappointed but it is still my go to place for special lunches

One of the reason that Ithaca, NY is special is the number of very good restaurants, some are exceptional. The Heights is one of those that are exceptional. Menu changes regularly, food is always exceptional and inovative, wait staff is the best around. This is our go to place for business and personal meals, the one restaurant that we compare... More
