Excellent Service, view of NY breath taking. Had a wonderful time and everyone had a great time and loved the wedding at the Highlawn Pavillion.

This is one of those places where people come from all over and everyone has heard of it, but it's in our backyard so we always take it for granted and never go. We FINALLY went to dinner at Highlawn, a bit reluctantly, as it was a tough to get a reservation, we were given a very late booking, and... More

Went there to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary but it was a disaster. We were in the middle of our dinner when our plates were taken away from us without even asking. We felt that we were pushed out to accommodate people in waiting as this place was jeme- packed that saturday evening. We felt insulted and embarrassed. Upon complaing... More

Several visits only confirmed what we already knew: this location is superior in every way. The view is magnificent, the menu is interesting and the food delicious and beautiful, the ambiance romantic and relaxing. The bar area is wonderfully cozy and the outdoor seating delightful. Try to score a window table and you'll have a wonderful time.

One of the best views of NY, great food and a wonderful bar area. Growing up near this restaurant makes it even more special to me. It is in the middle of a great park where we used to ride our bikes. The restaurant was made years later. I alway feel like I have arrived home. My favorite time to... More

We had a great meal here in the past week, and the view made it that much more memorable. I had wanted to eat here for 25 years, since I married a man from Montclair, who brought me up to see the view from Eagle Rock Reservation. It never worked out for us to dine here due to family obligations,... More

Highlawn is one of New Jersey's finest restaurants in my opinion. It scores biggest for the gorgeous view of New York and it's hard not to feel good just looking at that view. The lighting is soft and inviting and we found the service on many tries to be just right--not intrusive and well-paced. Aside from the view and the... More

I have been here for dinner on special occasions, drinks with friends and most recently planned a 50th anniversary for my in-laws. The catering manager was wonderful, very accommodating with menu changes and upgrades to wines and dessert. We had 25 guests attend. The server was one of the best I have ever had.
