My wife and I had dinner here on our first trip to Highlands. We called for reservations at the last minute and they graciously moved things around to accommodate us. We were seated promptly and were treated to a terrific dinner.

Had a late lunch on a Saturday. Seated quickly and server arrived shortly with information about specials, drinks, etc. Food, service and ambiance were all excellent.

I can't think of a better place to have an outdoor lunch in the Highlands than Wild Thyme. Soups are well made and creative and the sandwiches and salads are terrific. We have also had lunch and dinner at he the indoor bar, Aldo very enjoyable.

In early June 2015 we had a party of 7 and sat inside. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Most at the table had the local trout and it was well prepared. I had quail which was cooked perfectly with a ton of flavor. This dish is prone to being dry but not here. They have... More

We dined with friends at this lovely venue. Outdoor seating was delightful, sorry to say the food was not equal to the setting. We tried the crab appetizers, which was yummy and the house onion and garlic soup that was ok. My husband tried the lamb chops, had to send back the first ones as they were well done, he... More

Wild Thyme Gourmet moved to the center of downtown. It features great food and a really nice atmosphere. There is also some outdoor seating. The servers are great and a good wine list

This is the second time we've been here for lunch, and enjoyed it both times. We sat outside both times, and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was excellent each time, although this time, the service was only adequate.

We have gone to this restaurant many times, beginning with their original location, and their current spot. The owner, Linn, is a lovely young woman, active in overseeing the operation. There were 4 of us, and we each had something different. We started with a goat cheese, walnut and cranberry arugula salad. It was delicious, and not swimming in an... More
