February 1995; we were staying at an inn in Highlands as our summer cottage was under construction when electricity was lost all over town. Wolfgang managed to keep his kitchen operating so we ordered dinner to go. Mindy fixed us up with china plates and real flatware and very tasty hot food. We took it all back to the inn, no problem!
In all the years since we have been loyal diners. Now we enjoy the small plates and rolls and wine. Last evening waiter Justin was friendly, accommodating and efficient. Mindy said hello. The bistro filled and we do believe a good time and good food was had by all.

Great German food and the Bananas Foster is sublime! Wolfgang and his wife are wonderful hosts and their staff is attentive.

If you're just a little hungry looking for creative and delicious small plates or if you're looking for something more substantial, yet equally wonderful, then you're going to be very happy at Wolfgang's. The veal scallopini is our favorite....perfect every time.

The entire staff is welcoming and will make you feel at home right away. The wait staff knows the menu and can help you decide on a new favorite meal, the sommelier will help you with the wines, and management will come by to make sure you are very happy. Chef Wolfgang will come by your table to further assure you of a great evening.

if you're looking for just a cocktail or a glass of wine or a beer, there is a great bar area with a couple of tables outside, as well.

We enjoyed a lovely evening, just sipping an excellent Pinot Grigio and enjoying a selection of small snacks. Each one was unique and excellent. We sat inside because the night was still warm and the bar was so comfortable. Outside seating also looked inviting and on a cooler day it would have been great, too.
