Places like this are so hard to find. The dinner menu and dining room atmosphere were welcoming but we chose to remain at the bar and sample their bar and cocktail menu. The portions were generous and carefully prepared and the service was friendly and patient. The calamari was perfect and a tasty muscles and crab dish was only $12.... More

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.

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
