Wild Thyme as something for everyone's taste. The food, wine, and service are excellent in a town of many choices. Eat inside at the bar or in front of the open kitchen, or outside and enjoy the season! The sandwiches are served on a local made baguette (I had the skirt steak sandwich - yummy and tender), and my dining... More

Loved the creative menu,not your usual cookie cutter type no risk menu. Loved the chicken stuffed with green olives and almonds in a fig/marsla reduction! Just perfect!

Too bad!..great place, lovely outside seating, been there before a few times but the place has no energy on Sunday night!.. In Highlands, you are expecting the best anytime of the week and I am aware of the challenges of running such a nice place, you have to be up to par...always! Tables not set up properly, waiting too long... More

Loved to eat outside in the patio - our dog was able to join us and sit quietly at our feet throughout lunch. Popular place so a bit of wait before getting a table. We had crab cake sandwiches. Nice flavors. A bit expensive for lunch.

We ate at Wild Thyme last year for lunch and wanted to be sure and get back this year for dinner. The restaurant did not disappoint. We had a wonderful bottle of wine and 2 great entrees, salmon and grouper. The evening wasn't complete without a great dessert of chocolate cake. I am so sorry that we did not get... More

It was my favorite meal on this particular trip. The service was excellent as well. It's right in town, great location, easy to walk to while enjoying... More

There were four of us for dinner. A couple ordered trout, and one even ordered chicken parm (a little unusual). All entrees were absolutely outstanding. Nice wine list as well. Service impeccable. Make a reservation !!

We ate here on a recent trip to Highlands. We made reservations a day or two in advance, and were told the only seating left to reserve was one of the high top tables; we confirmed there were backs on the seats, so we agreed to those tables. We were seated promptly upon arrival and the high-tops were in a... More
