The food was good, above average, but not absolutely the best. Regarding the service, our server came across as stuffy. However, I think it was just his personality. The restaurant was small, quaint, and upscale.

Came recommended by the owner of our rental home. Nice outdoor area and tasty food. Unfortunately the wait staff came across as a bit indifferent and stuffy. Better options in Highlands in our opinion.

We have never been disappointed when having lunch or dinner at Wild Thyme. Great selection of well prepared food and the service is always great. The fish special was fantastic.

On our first visit to Highlands late August 2014. Wild Thyme was our favorite dining spot. Casual atmosphere but attentive and customized service. On the surface, doesn't appear kid-friendly, but the waiters suggested things that the chef could prepare and turned out great. Simple pasta and vegetables. And lovely stuff for adults, too! Wasn't possible to reserve a table, but... More

This is one of our favorite places to dine in Highlands. Wild Thyme has a very good wine list and the food is always fantastic. The fresh fish specials are always prepared perfectly and if you are in town for lunch be sure to try the Crispy Fried Shrimp Sandwich. It is fabulous.

As a local I've visited Wild Thyme Gourmet several times. The Black Bean Burger is my favorite. On a recent visit the check included a $3.50 fee just to split a BB Burger. I noticed the fee and asked for a waiver but the manager declined. As a regular and local client, I'll avoid Wild Thyme in the future. The... More

As I remember we did take the share charge off, it is clearly printed on the menu that there is a share charge for splitting an entree'. With the share charge the other person is given the choice of a side, usually Wild Rice Salad or Sweet Potato Chips which part of the share charge covers the cost. It's widely... More

Great food, but the menu has changed substantially in many years. Guess I have a short attention span

Had a very nice and relaxed meal. Excellent service. Willing to tone down the spice on a dish upon request. Great wine special. Pleasant atmosphere. A winner.
