“A must dine restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Traveling to Birmingham; this is a must in Five Points. Great cuisine! Appetizers are phenomenal, had oysters grilled with parmesan cheese and was a fan from the first bite. A variety of main courses ranging from strip steak, a variety of seafood including Tile, Grouper and shrimp along with duck and pork. Incidentally their baked potatoes are some of the best you will find. Everyone should find something they like.

Prices are more than a typical chain restaurant but then you are not eating frozen steak either.

Highlands has a good wine selection..... Pinot's and Cabs were very good-additionally they have some nice dessert wines offering several different varieties of Inniskllin.

“Still Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We have been spending New Year's Eve at Highlands for about 10 years now as well as dining there periodically at other times during the year. It never disappoints! The food is always absolutely delicious and so well prepared and the service is impeccable. I will say that this year's menu offerings for New Year's Eve was a little more "out of the box" than usual and not as enticing as in years' past. However, all our selections were wonderful!

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

If you ever travel to Birmingham al you must eat dinner here. Frank Stitt has mastered using local farm fresh foods and his French training to collide as a phenomenal resturant. Everthing is always perfect and the wait staff is the best. Eat here!

“Excellent Food, High Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Food was very good, well prepared, and with excellent,almost snobby service, but well worth the trip if someone else is paying. Place is expensive

“Must eat in Birmingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Highlands is hands down the best cuisine in Birmingham. The atmosphere, location, food, service and presentation is phenominal. It has a great upscale bar atmosphere as well. Great for anniversaries, birthdays, graduations and other special occasions. A+
