    Quaint little place with great food, friendly staff and a small but mighty wine list. We had a party of 4 and were easily accommodated. The crab cake sandwich, WOW! Simply amazing! The trout and buffalo sausage dish was also VERY tasty! On Thursday nights, it's half of bottles of wine. The list is small, yet the wines are stellar! Will definitely return!

    Highland Pacific is a great, casual place with a killer menu. This is one of those restaurants that made it difficult to choose which items to order. I loved the Ciappino and my boyfriend was very impressed with his "Stream & Prairie". The oysters were magnificent--we had a half dozen of the British Columbia and half from Chesapeake Bay. Both were delicious! I wasn't blown away by the sangria but it was a good size and a good pairing for my dinner. Margaret, our server, was very knowledgeable, fun, and very polite. She really helped make the evening! Everything came out in a timely fashion (but not fast food speedy, which I appreciate at a nice sit-down place). We definitely want to return!

    $2 drinks during happy hour, and Sundays the happy hour is 5-close. The mussels weren't the best, some of them were a bit rubbery. The hush puppies and oysters were excellent though and a great price!

    First time...Turns out Sunday is Happy Hour all night. A very good cocktail list, I had a mountain mule which is the Moscow Mule with a twist using their house ginger infused vodka, a must try and at $2.00 it could be the best drink in Denver! We started off with a dozen Happy Hour oysters which was the perfect start with all the accoutrements. We followed that up with some crawfish Mac and cheese that may be the best ever! Spices, cheeses crawfish on my! The Happy Hour menu has $2.00 tacos, we had blackened shrimp, mahi mahi and some beer battered cod. Each was a work of art and delicious! The menu is really phenomenal, but it was just too hard to get past the Incredibly priced and equally delectable Happy Hour menu..maybe tomorrow!

    Visited this LoHi neighborhood restaurant for an anniversary dinner. We fully enjoyed ourselves. The fresh daily Oysters on the Half Shell were excellent as was the Shrimp and Scallops Ceviche. The Scallops dinner was excellent as was the Lobster Penne dinner. We'll return for Happy Hour to enjoy the Oysters and well priced cocktails. Will also return for dinner.

    We took company from out of town to Highland Pacific, hoping they'd enjoy and be impressed. They were! Nothing was disappointing (other than a very tart martini that I loved and our guest didn't so I got to finish hers.) The atmosphere was casual but not too casual. The menu was varied so that everyone could find something just right, and the food was scrumptious.

    Heard it had great food from the kids who had been there before. Quite disappointed at the quality of food this time, even the kids. Lobster penne had a tomato sauce so you couldn't taste the lobster. Only four small scallops were served for the expensive price with cheap mashed potatoes and spinach .... this we felt was a rip off. River and prarie was good but also skimpy for the price ... half a buffalo sausage ... really? Not a good value for the price at all. Won't be going back.

    My husband and I took my father and brother here for a dinner on memorial day weekend. The food was great (I had the seared tuna). The portions were a bit smaller than what I would have wanted but the taste made up for it. We normally just come here for the oysters, and they remain our favorite dish. They are fantastic! The prices have increased on their happy hour oysters since we were there for new years, which is a bit unfortunate. This place has a great ambiance nestled in the Highlands neighborhood. They provide delicious upscale food without being pretentious.

    Terribly disappointed. Ordered dinner - lobster penne ala vodka, 5-10 minutes later we are informed they are out (Sunday evening at 7pm), ordered lobster tail that when delivered was literally the size of about 1/2 a bratwurst, I was a little taken back. Service was okay to poor. Food was either very good or not worth the money.

    Fantastic value for a delicious seafood meal. My husband and I were celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary and had visited Highland Pacific once before. We got a coupon to go back and thought it would be the perfect spot and it was! The wine list is great and very reasonable. The appetizers and specials are always delicious. We started with a dozen oysters of which our incredibly knowledgeable server assisted us in choosing. For our entrees I had the scallops which were to die for in a delectable chardonnay and white truffle sauce while my husband dined on a steak. Highland Pacific's menu may at first appear a little small but you can tell that each and every dish is hand crafted and superbly made at an extremely reasonable price.

    My wife and I were extremely pleased. The service was very good. We had several servers that came by to assist, but never hovering. We had linguini with shrimp and a scallops dish, both wonderful. The price could not be beat. We would have probably paid double at a high-end name restaurant for the same meal. Couldn't have asked for a better start to the evening

    Dined on 2/26/2014
    I was trying this restaurant during Restaurant Week but ended up ordering outside the menu when I found out that Wednesday night was oysters for $1.25/oyster and they were the freshest I have had since being in the city! They were served shucked on a bed of ice with hot sauce, horseradish and ketchup. They could have given us some larger slices of lemon but I did not ask. We also had the lobster Penne as a shared dish and a share AHI poke that was delightful. The New Orleans bent was a nice touch. I would return to this place again but the only drawback is the Highland parking or lack thereof!

    I had dinner at Highland Pacific on a recent Wednesday evening at approximately 7:15 PM. We were seated within 15 minutes of arrival. The restaurant was moderately busy. Our server was friendly and attentive when tableside. Drinks order was taken promptly, delivery was a touch slow. Appetizer order (oysters) was also taken in a reasonable amount of time, delivery was noticeably slow. Main course order was taken promptly and delivered without undue delay. The dining room is comfortably lit; the noise level that evening was moderate, pleasant. The menu, while not exhaustive, offers plenty of interesting options. Most will find the wines selection adequate and somewhat interesting. I would definitely return when in the neighborhood again.
