    Awesome dinner! Duck 2-ways, Endive & Watercress salad, good Martini and wine by the glass. Service was great. Menu changes regularly.

    Frank Stitt's elegant presentation of regional cuisine is as vital as ever. The restaurant’s hospitality has long been equally distinguished as its food. Read more

    As someone who worked for Frank Stitt for 4 years, trying to summarize "what's good here" is laughable. All of his restaurants are phenomenal, but Highlands is special. Simply the best.

    Service was great! The Cadillac fish was very good. Good idea to make a reservation but sitting in the bar area is still a great experience. Would definitely go again.

    Loved everything. Mixed grill, seafood muddle, baked oysters and beef cheeks all excellent. I live in Manhattan and this blows pretty much everything there away.

    R.W. "Johnny" Apple, late writer for the NY Times, listed Highlands as the 5th best restaurant in the world, and he knew what he was talking about. You can see the article in the restaurant I think.
