Highland's Garden Cafe
chicken pot pieThe food at Highland's Garden has always been outstanding, (especially the trout and peach soup) but this time I got the chicken pot
pie and was disappointed. It was so watery. My friend ordered it as well, and since it was for her birthday, I felt badly that she
also found it not too great.
I will definitely return, but I will order something else.
The dessert was delicious, as always.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemThis restaurant remains a gem. The food is quite good, the atmosphere lovely and the service beyond impeccable--delightfully so.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food in a Cozy SettingMy wife and I decided to try Highlands Garden Cafe for our wedding anniversary on the recommendations on OpenTable. We arrived to an old rennovated home with exposed brick that oozed warmth. The dining area we were in was mostly couples enjoying themselves. Shortly after we were seated the managment surprised us with comp glasses of prosecco, which was a nice touch. The menu had a perfect variety of choices and the food was delicious. My only complaint was that we seemed to have a bit of communication breakdown with our waiter about what we wanted as an entree and he kept taking away our wine list when we wanted to hang on to it. Not a big deal, we enjoyed it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGarden Oasis with Food to MatchIn a time of too much noise and too much foodie hype, Highland's Garden Cafe is a reminder that food can be wonderful to look at delicious to eat and healthy too. It's a joy to hear my friends without competing with the loud din of most restaurants.
The menu is incredibly generous is giving every category of food an opportunity to be enjoyed.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFive of us dined at HighlandFive of us dined at Highland Gardens, which has the best Cosmos in Denver. We all had trouble deciding, with so many great choices. Three ordered fish dishes, much enjoyed; one the bison burger, good except for the Gluten-Free bun...those of us who are gluten intolerant are happy to have a bun we can eat, but others prefer their wheat bread. My lamb chops were perfectly cooked, lukewarm, but fine on the salad with goat cheese and arugula. The root vegetable soup with beet chips was fairly tasteless, unlike every other soup I've had there. The creme caramel was fabulous as was the ice cream with exceptional homemade caramel sauce, a reason in itself to dine here. Highland Gardens is one of our top three favorite Denver restaurants.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on a cold snowy nightWe went on a cold snowy night midweek so the restaurant was relatively quiet. It was a business dinner so we were undisturbed but had very personal attention from the wait staff. It was wonderful! What a nice evening for business and pleasure!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMthe menu is unique. I hadthe menu is unique. I had the scallops with a fruit salsa that was marvelous. The pate is "rustic" and well presented.
The service was fanatastic. My companion was flying in and his flight delayed dignificantly. The staff and kitchen were most accomodating.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experience...veryWe had a great experience...very pleasant ambiance, wonderful food.
