Casual atmosphere in a city setting. The outdoor patio is a nice touch even though we ate inside. We had dinner there before a play at the Highlands Playhouse, the menu selection and food was very good. For Highlands, the prices are very reasonable. Our server was attentive and informative. We will definitely come back again.

Have never been disappointed here. Great lunches with vegetarian options. The portobello burger is one of our favorite dishes.

We had a fantastic lunch at Wild Thyme during our visit to Highlands. We river about 1:00 and had to wait about 25 minutes for a table, which is a testament to the restaurant's popularity. My wife had the goat cheese salad and I had the warm Asian chicken stir-fry salad. Both were outstanding. The greens tasted extremely fresh, and... More

We did have dinner on the patio and it was delightful! The atmosphere and food couldn't have been better. You can make reservations and I highly recommend.

If you make a reservation you need to understand that it means little. They start to look for an opening after you arrive. After a 20 minute wait to get to a table we ordered and received our appetizers 50 minutes later. The food is good but the ownership has not staffed the restaurant adequately for the number of seats.

We arrived shortly after 5:00; even though the restaurant didn't open until 5:30, they seated us. I ordered polenta with vegetable ragout. My cousin had portobello in puff pastry. We both enjoyed our meals. Mmmmm. The bread was out of the world, especially the wheat bread.

My boyfriend and I had dinner last night and we both loved our entrees! He had the bacon wrapped quail and I had the portobello mushroom dish. Both were delicious! We will definitely be returning.

Don't be discouraged if you see a line. They move people thru pretty quickly. It's worth the wait. A very nice menu and everything is cooked to order. Best salmon dish I've had in a long time. Wait service could have been better. I realize they're busy but we were only checked on once--when he saw our empty plates. Would... More

Service was excellent. Lunch sandwiches are all gourmet. Portions are large and easily split. Salmon was fresh as was the grouper on the sandwich sandwich.
