Terrific views

We were there for a birthday celebration and the views of New York city are beautiful! The night we were there a jazz band played and they were terrific.

My fiancé brought me here as a surprise for my birthday and some friends joined us there. We had stopped by previously and had a drink on the terrace between a wedding and reception and I had wanted to go back to see if the food was a good as the view. I was not disappointed. The service was wonderful.... More

I've eaten in the dining room and the food is quite good but perhaps a bit too stuffy, and wasn't interested in having another dinner there; but.... The restaurant is situated on one of the highest points in West Orange with a fantastic view of the NYC skyline. They have a large separate bar with outside seating on the terrace.... More

This was an experience! We asked for a table outside as the weather was beautiful and we will have a great view of Mid and downtown New York. The first table we sat was close to a gentleman smoking a cigar and the smoke coming directly in our direction was not bearable. Fortunately, another table opened and we were able... More

Let me tell you that this is fine dining in all it's glory. Excellent in every detail from the food to the service. 5 STARS indeed. The ambience is second to none. The scenery of the New York skyline is tremendous.

Service was exceptional from beginning to end; the meals couldn't have been better (thank you chef and staff!!!) and the view of the New York City Skyline couldn't have been more impressive. Great place for receptions, parties, families and couples. It has everything one would want in a restaurant. I've been here a few times and this place has always... More

This is my husband's and my birthday place. We've been coming for years. The food has always been excellent, the service is great and the view spectacular. Although it doesn't look like alot of food, we've always left there full. Nice, romantic setting if you're seated by the window. Nice bar area if you just want cocktails. A bit pricey,... More

A client and I met here for a drink and decided to stay for dinner. The location and view of NYC is spectacular and it is a good place to meet for a business drink as I have done a number of times. I had never thought much of the food or the atmosphere at dinner. It has always been... More

My husband and I love this establishment, we just wish it were a bit less expensive. Service is always great and since we live in Bergen county we only go for special occasions but we do love it. We also had our reception here years ago. We love coming back and reminiscing. We will return.

Have been to the Highlawn a few times. We always enjoy it. When last weekend for a special celebration and was not disappointed. Two items of note: 1. Service was excellent. We were by the window and place was starting to get crowded yet we were not rushed. 2. All of the food was very good but had a 'black... More
