Our experience started positively when we received a call from the restaurant reconfirming the reservation that we had made over a month before; offered us the option of seating on outside covered patio. Setting was lovely but the meal was a disappointment after all the raves we have read about the food at tWolfgang's. The Bavarian Sampler that was ordered... More

We had dinner here our last night in Highlands. The service was exceptionally friendly, and the food was delicious. There is nice quiet seating inside, and a more casual outdoor patio, which is where we sat. It was a cool night out (so cool that they had the patio heaters on - in August), and the patio was perfect. It... More

This is not our first visit to Wolfgangs. The food and service were excellent. Every dish we tried was great and the staff was very friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. Hands down, it is one of the best in Highlands.

The crab cake on Lobster Cream sauce with pecan crusted shrimp is delicious. As a northerner, this is the only place I will eat grits. They are creamy and delicious, not at all like grits I had eaten previously. Others in our group enjoyed the Bavarian sampler which is a large portion of German wursts and schnitzel with red cabbage,... More

I had the opportunity to dine at Woldgang's recently and the food was absolutely delicious! I ordered the Ceaser Salad, and it was wonderful. The veal dish from Wolfgang personally was excellent and I recommend it highly...plenty of good food! Good wine and the service was great! I would recommend it to anyone.

My boyfriend and I came to Highlands for our two year anniversary. We heard about Wolfgang's through some locals we met on our trip, and we are so glad we checked it out! I started with the grilled romaine caesar salad, and my boyfriend had the french onion soup. Both were delicious and an amazing start to our meal. For... More

A trip to Highlands, NC should be on everyone's MUST DO list~ It's really lovely!! The gorgeous NC mountains play home to a very high-end community of extraordinary homes, restaurants, shopping, golf, country clubs, etc... While I find fine cuisine supremely enjoyable, there's a point where I have to say "enough, already!!" First of all, our reservations were for 7;30--we... More

I have eaten at Wolfgang's every visit I have had to Highlands and it never fails to amaze! The dinning experience is just high class all the way! If you don't want to have a full meal you can always just stop in for a delicious appetizer and glass of wine at the bistro too! Chef Wolfgang also has a... More
