“Very Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Arrived close to closing 8.30 pm, but they served us without any fuss or feeling we were being hurried. Food was very good Thai/western mix, nice salads, good wine list.
definately worth a visit.

“Great For Fresh Gourmet Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

My husband and I had lunch at Wild Thyme's location in Highlands. We ate inside because it was a chilly day but many diners preferred the outside tables which are located in front of the restaurant in the courtyard of the shopping on Main Street.

Order the crab cakes - my husband did and they were outstanding!!! I can't wait to go back to have them for lunch myself.

I had the goat cheese salad with the optional chicken breast. It was tasty but nothing that would draw me back like the crab cakes.

Bistro type inside tables and booths with young enthusiastic servers from the area.

“Creative & delicious cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant is in a new and larger location on the Main Street of Highlands, and we were able to enjoy lunch outside there on Saturday. The menu offers something for everyone, but with a twist. The chicken wrap has artichokes, olives, and feta cheese while the crab cakes arrive open- faced with no filler. The side, a chilled wild rice salad (one of three options) was excellent. We returned for drinks and appetizers with another couple, and the Brie with maple syrup and pecans had great flavor. Staff at the restaurant is friendly while still very professional. The contemporary and immaculate decor provides a nice contrast to other venues in Highlands.

“Great Place to Dine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Surprising menu contains a large of variety of appetizers and entries. The crab-corn chowder is excellent. The other appetizers are very good with a sort of Asian fusion of ingredients. The bartender is very knowledgeable regarding a variety of drinks and makes an old fashion. The entrees were excellent and very flavorful and textures were great. Busy place, now I know why.

“Best meal in years!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Best meal in years! Wonderful crab-corn chowder, great wedge salad, remarkable grilled halibut with lemon-butter sauce. Substituted polenta for rice --fantastic. Service always excellent; wines very good & reasonably priced. If you come to Highlands and don't try this restaurant, it will be your BIG loss.
