Where to I begin. This is our 3rd trip to this restaurant as we have visited for 3 mothers day brunchs. Up until yesterday, we were happy with our visits but yesterday, mothers Day visit was our last. The problems were just one after another. The most critical was service or should I say lack of service. The wait staff... More

Very sorry for your experience. We work very hard to make our customers feel at home. We feel very bad and we wished that you could have said something before you left so we could have done something for you instead of writing a review on social media. Sometimes as hard as we try we fail with some customers I... More

We attended a party at The Would. It was a buffet which included flank steak, a chicken dish and a pasta/broccoli dish. The food was absolutely excellent and the staff was wonderful. Drinks were kept full and dishes collected quickly. The flank steak was fabulous - tasty and juicy. The staff was very accommodating of any special requests and very... More

Too late for dinner but impressed with staff and atmosphere. Will be going back for a meal soon. Quiet and off the main road it's a gem that we may have missed if not for the hotel telling us about then

Arrived a bit early and had drinks at the bar. Friendly crowd and staff. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and service was attentive during the whole meal. We ordered the crab cake and cream of broccoli soup for appetizers and both tasted fresh homemade and were excellent. Although at $15 the one crab cake was a bit... More

The Would is tucked away on a hillside in Highland, "off the beaten path," and we just hadn't gotten there in a year or so. We've had great meals there in the past, and last night's experience was no exception. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic: the fireplace was blazing, each table had a candle, the setting is both rustic... More

The service here was excellent and the venue looks unassuming from the outside but is quite nice inside with a rustic feeling and a fireplace. They also have a bar and candle light at each table. They have many seating choices including patio dining in the warmer months. We went here for restaurant week and the food was delicious. I... More

We were a little early for our reservation, but they took us right in. A busy Friday night. The four of us enjoyed the ride to Highland NY, about an hour South of home.
