Wild Thyme can always be counted on for a very enjoyable evening. We were part of a large group on a weekend night. You could sense we were stretching the capability of the wait staff. This place is not set up to easily handle large groups. There were 18 in our party and there is no private room to use.... More

We went into Highlands for the Christmas tree lighting and stayed for dinner. We wanted to sit outside despite the 40 degree weather since we had our dog with us. The staff set up three heaters around us and we're very attentive even though we were the only patrons outside. Food was great, wine was great and service was great.

While on a trip with my girlfriends we popped in here for lunch...and boy are we glad we did! I think we all cleaned our plates and that's not usually the case. I even decided to forgo a stop into Kilwins so that I could finish my Salmon BLT. I ordered the sweet potato chips with my sandwich and thoroughly... More

We were greeted with a no eye contact "be with you in minute" and sat there while hostess caught up on her paperwork before finally grabbing menus and gesturing to follow..,, no smile, no welcome... weird. The server started rattling off specials before we'd gotten our coats off and settled - definitely felt the 'turn the tables fast' mentality. Service... More

We ate lunch here while visiting Highlands. Husband had grilled salmon sandwich and I had the grilled vegetable sandwich with wild rice salad which was outstanding. We also had a nice crisp white wine and were treated to very good service. Place is attractive, clean, has a bar area and restaurant. We will go back!

Yes, one of the best. Love the food, service, atmosphere & the décor. We had lunch & just took everything in. What I can say about the food, is it was fresh & filling. Can't say I have agreed with the other recent reviews. Going back in January & can't wait to return.

After coming from the spa at OEI, we were looking for a healthy lunch spot. We decided to order the chicken artichoke wrap and a bowl of the rosemary soup. The wrap needed a ton of pepper to give it some semblance of taste. The sweet potatoe chips were also stale. This lunch was below average and I don't think... More

The food was good here with a varied menu but we were rushed along through our meal. We weren't offered a second drink and our plates and glasses were rushed off the table and swiftly followed by the check. Very expensive fast food.

Conveniently located at main street Highlands. Reasonably-priced delicious Asian fusion food with fast and friendly service. A nice hang-out from ordinary to romantic dining, with indoor and outdoor seating.
