Had dinner with two business associates. The restaurnat was not very busy, perhaps Tuesday night traffic, however, it was not a reflection of the amazing experience we had. We were greated by a very friendly server who throughout the entire dinner kept eye contact with us. We had truffle fries, Buffalo Oysters and the fried Cauliflowers for appetizers, blackened Rockfish... More

Very poor experience - Wanna be chef and waitstaff need to choose another profession. If the quality of the food and the service were as great as the menu was written, it would be a winner, but this gets negative marks all around. This is quite surprising given the high marks by other ratings. If you are dining there for... More

My wife and I decided to retry High Spot where we have eaten a few times but have never had a good meal. Unfortunately, it fell short again. I ordered a braised pork shank on special which came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My wife tried the stuffed river trout with basmati mixed with cherry tomatoes. The shank was charred... More

We stopped by for lunch in January and both of us had salads. I would say that the food was fine but not copious for the price. I had a salad with a piece of cheese and walnuts and coffee and my wife had a salad as well plus a microbrew draft beer ($7). The bill came to $40 including... More

New in town and tried all the local cuisine. By far, High Spot is where it's at! Great atmosphere, food and spirits!

Great food, attentive service... Missy, our waitress, was excellent and glad we took her recommendations! Pork nachos a win for sure! Will definitely be back.

A lovely restaurant with a nice variety of food for every taste. Very friendly and helpful waitresses. Fabulous cream of crab soup!! I don't know what they add to it (nutmeg?) but it won the crab soup contest on our recent getaway. Check out the history too - Ella Fitzgerald and a number of other famous musicians have been there!!

We visited the High Spot in Cambridge last night for dinner after we discovered that the restaurant where we planned to dine was closed on Tuesday evenings temporarily. We arrived close to 7pm to a jam packed restaurant. I should preface this review with the fact that I have eaten at High Spot on 2 other occasions and never experienced... More

We ate here during the Ironman event. Sat at the bar as it was very busy. Food was very good, great beer selection. Our bartender was very attentive and friendly.

Visited while in the area for the Seagull Century ride. Great place to load up on carbs. Seriously, the food was great with an interesting menu and delightful drinks
