Delicious!

This was a very good restaurant, recommended to us by a local resident. The food was very good - I can see why it's a local favorite!

The bistro is cozy and the food is very good. I love the grilled heart of romaine. Located on Main Street.

I love eating here whenever we come into town. My favorite is a salad and the portabello mushroom. The lamb chops rock as well! Very good food!

I was worried, when my son told me he was getting married in Highlands, NC. We live in CA. The rehearsal dinner Mindy and Wolfgang helped us plan was exquisite! Sight unseen, we were able to plan, select, and deliver the best event, ever. EVERYONE raved about the meal, and I have to agree. Not only were both the meal... More

Plus the rest of the menu sounded great as well. After our meal, we hung out and drank wine at the quaint little bar there and socialized with some locals... More

We visited Highlands during the off season so we didn't have many options for dinner since most other restaurants were closed. However, we were NOT disappointed. The food was fabulous!

It was great being greeted by our favorites, both the dishes on the menu as well as the staff at Wolfgang's! We miss them while they are closed during the winter, but love it when they reopen in February! Yum, Yum, Yum!! Chef and Mindy were home sick the night we were there. Hope they get better soon!!
