Very accommodating to our large party. I had the Bolognese with truffle oil that hit the spot. Bread was hot and fresh, great selection of beers. I'm sure all the non-carbs were great too.

Highland does as Highland does. It's just great - the food is delicious, portions are very good for the price, and there's nothing extraneous - and that's good. The food stands alone. You won't be surprised by what's on the menu but you'll be surprised...More

Highland Kitchen does *not* take reservations AND they will only seat you when *every* member of your party is present. GOOD LUCK!

They have Sunday Brunch 11-2:30. The menu is at their website. I have had the brunch many times and it is extraordinary. It's well known and very busy so get there early if you can.
