Delicious menu and friendly, high-quality service. I highly recommend this restaurant. It's a hidden gem! It is the type of place you may save for a special,occasion but it shouldn't be. The menu changes nightly, which warrants frequently trips.

We went here for our anniversary last night. I come from a family of wonderful cooks. We are so tired of eating out and thinking, we could do better at home. Looking for some beautiful and creative food? Look no further! The bar is gorgeous with a wonderful tapas menu. Try the BLD (breakfast lunch dinner) The dinner menu is... More

This is a notable dining experience. Staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful (one member of the party was vegan and the chef created an exceptional dinner). The food was simply superb. Halibut fresh light and flavorful. Cauliflower appetizer was a total treat! Do Not miss this food!

Although you'd think from the name that the Heights Cafe and Grill is informal, it's a bit less relaxed than the name might suggest. Service was attentive, although I must say that it was far slower than we wanted, and the meal was paced such that there were long breaks between courses. The food was tasty, and everyone ate well.... More

The Heights catered a wedding we attended and the food was amazing. The evening started off with lovely hor d'oeuvres and a great waitstaff. Once everyone was seated we enjoyed a sit down dinner that was served family style. Everything was delicious. The sides were so good, some tables asked for seconds and they were provided immediately. A truly wonderful... More

We've been to the Heights Cafe several times. The food, I must say, is consistently good. Perhaps for some, dishes may seem "over done" or that the chef is "trying too hard." Some dishes include too many flavors, that I would normally not put together, but that's just my taste. All flavors are, however, truly delicious. Their ingredients are excellent.... More

Went for dinner at the bar because it was near Stewart Park. Great time with the staff and customers there. Bartender was very helpful and service was quite good. I would have liked to know about the specials before I ordered, but that's not enough to ding the rating. The food was excellent. Nothing that I tasted (and there was... More

Found this restaurant on a recommendation. Atmosphere was average. Service was very respinsive but not warm or all that friendly. Food was excellent. Very small portions for the money. Paid $ 48.00 for an 8 ox. filet. It was good, but not that good.Thank God I don't drink alcohol. I don't see a return trip.

Chic but not stuffy.....can be pricey but worth it...we enjoyed the salmon and cod main courses, the fried calamari was tender , done kind of tempura style and well seasoned....we ate well, no room for dessert : (
