We just moved to Needham and wanted to go out and get lunch. Good food, nice staff and a pleasure to eat. We will be going back many, many times.

We were a party of 10 and wanted to eat someplace close to home that was accommodating of small children but fun for adults. Blue on Highland fit the bill on all counts. We all had something different but the wine list was good, the food good, and the service good too. No major knock outs but we left satisfied... More

This restaurant is great for a night out and also for lunch. It has a fun vibe, particularly in the evenings. The salads are delicious and the scallop special one night was tasty.

Big city dining in the suburbs. Vibrant bar and sleek, stylish dining room. Good wine list and many specialty cocktails. Upscale menu at an affordable price. Nice mix of meat, seafood, and pasta. Very good desserts.

I went in alone for lunch. The place is neat and simple. It was crowded with a nice atmosphere. It's a bit dark inside. The waiter was nice and courteous and the service was very fast although he took some time to notice when I was ready or done. I ordered a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. It was good and came... More

About 7 of us went here for lunch. This place is very trendy looking. I love the design of it. Plenty of parking in the back. Service was great. Food was good.

I ordered a salad with some grilled chicken and seasonal vegetables. Have to say it was quite well put together and the ingredients were all fresh and had an organic taste to them. Decent value for money as well - glass of wine and dinner size salad including meat for about $30 USD. The service was also quite prompt and... More

Blue on Highland manages to walk that fine line between a casual place for comfort food and a place where you can get a serious meal fit for a foodie. Although this is not a place that makes you think small plates or tapas, my wife and I looked at the appetizer menu and found the most interesting dishes there.... More
