    We had dinner at Hi Life during restaurant week. The food was great and the restaurant week price was a great value. We've eaten at Hi Life previously and we've never been disappointed. The bar area is a great place to have a cocktail and grab an appetizer.

    I had met two friends at restaurant the week before Gwinnett Restaurant week and had a fun dinner and decided I would take a friend and her husband for her birthday and three course dinner for $21.21. We had a lovely evening and food options were perfect since we had one of everything offered. It was so nice that the other couple took 4 of their grandchildren two nights later. I have never been disappointed at this restaurant.

    Very good food! And our waitress was the most charming on the planet! We had lobster ravioli which was yummy and oh so rich. Also, seared scallops with wasabi mashed taters and tempura green beans which were heavenly. And, half priced wine on a Sat. night.

    I have been dining at Hi Life for years and I keep going back because the food and the service are absolutely top notch. Don't be put off by the location. The scallop dish (served whith wasabi whipped potatoes and tempura battered green beans) is one of the best in Atlanta. The steaks are extremely delicious as well. Go see for yourself.

    I really don't understand why no one goes here. I noticed two things that might be why: the location and the sign(or lack of). The location is stuffed away in a dark shopping center. I don't understand why the HI LIFE sign was off? I made the area very unattractive and a little scary. Across the street the restaurants were packed, but HI LIFE...the girlfriend and I were the only ones eating. The food, drinks, and service were great. The servings are heavy so you will have lunch for the next day. On Saturday they offer half priced wine. Overall I would go back for the food and drinks, but not until they fix the HI LIFE sign...I need to feel safe.

    We stumbled on this location while in Norcross GA for a couple of days (it was very close the the Hilton where we were staying). I had asked the front desk to recommend a place we could go for a late dinner and to watch the NCAA Tournament. I had worked in the restaurant business for many years so am somewhat critical on all levels. I found the restaurant very comfortable and the server welcoming and helfpul. The food was the biggest surprise....excellent Caesar Salad, and the Lobster Ravioli was one of the best I've ever had. The wine list was a little weak. I only say that becuase the food was so good, it begs for better (and more reasonably priced) wines. I'd definitely recommend this place.

    So this may not be the best location - tucked in a strip mall in Peachtree Corners. It may not have all the flare of driving down to buckhead - but if you are anywhere close to this restaurant you have got to try it. The food was fantastic. You don't get the stuffy service or stuffy people at other restaurants of this caliber - so it's a great place without the attitude. From start to finish I could not have asked for a better place for our 11th wedding anniversary.

    Was looking for a nice, romantic venue with low crowds and a reasonable drive. Open Table was most helpful and led me to this gem. The service was wonderful; they knew beforehand it was our anniversary and treated us very special and gave us the space we desired. The food (Grouper, Salmon) melted in our mouth and the cheesecake was awesome. We badly needed an escape and time together...and Hi Life delivered!

    Hi Life was highly recommended by my housemate and did not disappoint. My date and I thoroughly enjoyed the food, the Saturday wine special, the attentive service and the quiet ambiance. We wanted a restaurant where our conversation could flow and not be overwhelmed by the din of a rush hour eatery. The crab cake appetizer impressed a (gorgeous) foodie from Maryland! The sea bass and scallops entrees were superb. Melanie provided great service -- thank you! The Hi Life was start of the best date night in 40 years! G, you will always have my heart! R

    I had been to this restaurant once, over six years ago, and decided to give it another try. I liked the quiet, unbusy atmosphere, unlike most places on a Friday night. Apparently they do most of their business week nights. I found he food competent, but it wasn't that special. The bread was very salty, and the desserts just ok. I think the prices are a bit high for the value, but I would consider another visit.

    We went to Hi-Life with the intent of trying it out as a rehearsal dinner venue. I must say that overall, we were disappointed. The steak was served not only over well done but charred. The fish was also poorly prepared and, as a result, she decided that the rehearsal dinner would not be held at this venue. I have to say that my wife's and my dinner were just fine. We will probably give Hi-Life a second try but they are certainly out of the running for a rehearsal dinner. With a tab of over $200 (with drinks), I didn't see the value. Pros: Nice ambiance for a restaurant in a strip shopping center. Cons: Service was slow even though the place was not crowded. Food was poorly prepared for half the party.

    We had a wonderful dinner. Our server was very knowledgeable. We talked about like Pinot Noir, but wasn't sure which to choose. She brought 2 samples for me to try Both were very good, but one went with my fish choice better. My husband chose the other to go with his steak. We enjoyed the carpaccio as an appetizer. It was little overdressed, but still good.We were presented with strawberry-orange sorbet as a palate cleanser before the entrees. I had the sea bass, my husband had the chimichurri steak. both were very good, the rice side lacked salt, but the meals were still delicious. We ended with ginger cheesecake - so good.

    We had never been to Hi Life even though we have lived in Norcross for a couple of years. It is in a nondescript strip mall and from the outside it is pretty ugly. The inside is nice although it looks pretty dated. The wonton appetizer was good and very different. We both had fish (sea bass and scallops) and they were good and very well presented. The prices were a little high but it was a good dinner. We were one of the only tables that were filled in the restaurant which is too bad.

    Stylish and inviting. We loved our meal. The pace was very leisurely - so don't go in a rush... but you'll want to savor every bite of your delicious meal. My friend started with a spicy Gazpacho - which was excellent and anice kick to it. Then he had the Jambalaya which was very good and filling. I had the lobster ravioli - with big chunks of delicious lobster and a very rich sauce. Be sure and save room for dessert - our white chocolate blond brownie a la mode was likely the best dessert we had in a very long time. Well worth the calories. We'll be back.

    I found this gem through Open Table on New Year's Eve. My husband and I wanted a very special dining experience to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and the coming of the New Year. The service was excellent with the exception of the delay in receiving our entrees. The food was over the top... Filet Mignon was perfectly prepared. The Lobster Ravioli was outrageously delicious (I highly recommend it) and the house Cabernet was wonderful!! We have already recommended Hi-Life to several of our friends. Thank you Open Table!!

    Food was good. It was Valentine's Day so it was busy. We were put in the middle of the floor with people practically sitting on top of us so that was disappointing. Normally, I have a good experience at this restaurant, but I wouldn't recommend it for Valentine's Day unless you make reservations VERY early and pick your seating.

    We visited the Hi Life restaurant on a Friday night at 7:00. We have visited this restaurant before and it has been one of our favorites. This particular night, however, we were disappointed by the quality of our food. All the dishes we ordered were very bland and not well prepared (the table beside us also had to send food back to be redone). In addition 2 of our favorites were either removed from the menu (wedge salad) or in the menu but unavailable. We certainly eill go back to try again - hoping for a return to quality.
