    The real reason to visit this Scottish gastropub is the whiskeys: the list runs eleven pages, covers the northern islands to Speyside to the bogs of Islay, and includes detailed tasting notes. Read more

    Try the Blood and Sand cocktail: Highland Park Scotch, Cherry Herring, orange an lemon juices, and bitters.

    Check out the bathroom wallpaper in the bar area of Highlands restaurant, v cool!

    Try the Innis & Gunn beer on tap. Originally developed in Edinburgh to flavor barrels for cask reserve whiskey. Turns out throwing away beer is not something us Scots are good at, thus oak aged beer!

    Sam Brown · November 8, 2013
  • Village Voice

    Try the Shepard Pie, Sausage Rolls, and Cullen Skink Soup- they were really popular at Choice Eats!

    The beef Wellington is life changing.

    Good beers on tap, extensive scotch selection. Great martinis. Staff was very nice.

    Presbyterian's Revenge: Black Grouse with the distinctive bitter bite of Cynar, shaken with lemon and grapefruit bitters to lighten things up, with a big twist of grapefruit on top.

    Hostess w/the black bob is awful. After stepping on friend's bag then telling her move it out of our line of sight, she had a bouncer kick us out. We were 3 dead sober women in our 30s. Not returning

    Edlynne L · January 12, 2013
  • Siyun F.

    Good selection of whiskey and whiskey based cocktails. Food is Scottish comfort food, aka heavy,in a good way. Brussels sprouts and scallop are very good!

    Siyun Fan · March 20, 2012

    Lively (occasionally rowdy), pubby-feeling bar with a formidable Scotch list and excellent cocktails.

    The 1588 pairs two of my fave types of booze: Macallan 15 and Brugal 1888.

  • Three Jane

    Favorite West Village date spot. Order the Loch Maree, and you'll love me forever. Strawberries & champagne - how can you go wrong?

  • Of a Kind

    This spot is a favorite of local designer Jacqueline Rousseau (she suggests the beef wellington and a cider!) Check out a limited edition Printed Chambray Tie by Jacqueline for Of a Kind here. Read more

    Thoroughly enjoyed my Full Scottish Breakfast, my Highlands Bloody Mary AND the staff! Plus they played all your favorite hits from the 80s during brunch; couldn't have been nicer. (via Scoville) Read more

    Highlands makes a good old fashioned

    Old Fashioned · May 17
  • Alle S.

    Though a very cool place, Highlands can be noisy and crowded during a weekend night. Be sure to reserve a table ahead of time and for a quieter ambiance, try to get a table on the back room.

    Alle Singer · April 26
  • Lisa D.

    Food here is good! Entree portions are large. Sausage roll is amazing as well as risotto, short rib, crab toast! Such a surprise!
