When we arrived In Highlands and I saw that the world famous chef had a place there I was so excited!

We are sorry about your dining experience with us. Wolfgang was speaking the truth. He is not Wolfgang Puck.When he came by your table we wished that you had told him that you were not satisfied with our restaurant. We have been in business for 22 years and have always had favorable comments about our soup. Wolfgang would like to... More

Chose Wolfgang's for my 51 wedding anniversary dinner. A candle and wine with rose petals awaited our arrival and everything went up from there. Food was excellent, wine was matched with the taste of food and service never got in the way of our celebration and memory making. God willing I'll be there for my 52nd!

We were so excited and looked forward to it all weekend. It did not disappoint! It was perfect. Only about 25 people and each party had... More

We didn't have reservations, but were able to get a table for an early dinner (thanks Jackie). The service staff was knowledgeable, professional and courteous( thank you Erin and D'Arcy). Wolfgang was a gracious host and remembered us from our visit... More

Made a evening dinner date with Wolfgang's resturant in Highlands, NC. Arrived at 6:00 pm and from there the place was booming with locals and tourist alike. First time, great atmosphere, super soups, great grilled stuffed seafood grouper and excellent service by someone who had lived in the area for 20 years . Price , service and food were worth...
