A word from Highpoint Bistro and Bar
Highpoint Bistro & Bar is a modern American hangout with fun, interactive modern food that delivers "wow factor" in terms of both its quality and accessibility. We firmly believe in using fresh ingredients at Highpoint. In a modern New York mindset, it combines value, culinary edge and a sensibility, most of its ingredients coming from local farmers. By combining a comfortable, lively atmosphere, crowd pleasing quality eats, and a contemporary philosophy on food, the neighborhood can consider Highpoint a "feel at home spot."

    Wonderful bartender-great drinks. We were a group of 11 and all our food came out at the same time and everyone enjoyed his/her meal. Those who ordered the salmon were especially pleased! The tuna tacos appetizers were great. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/4/2013
    The innovative menu at Highpoint (my watermelon steak was delicious) was garnished by the fantastic service. I had an early dinner with friends, kids and baby included, and the staff helped keep everyone happy. The waiter even helped clean off my nieces purse after a soda spill.

    Great Restaurant! We celebrated my birthday dinner with a large group of friends at Highpoint. Everyone at Highpoint was extremely accommodating, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this restaurant.

  • Nice, if a bit noisy
    Kiel
    Dined on 6/4/2013
    Lovely, that they can open the doors to the street, but the street is Seventh Ave – pick quieter hours, ask for a table where 2 can sit @ 90°, rather than across, etc. Food is very good, especially the tuna tartare taco appetizer (which would be easier to share, if there were four, rather than three), and the lobster Cobb salad (tho now rather pricey), and "Iceburger" salad (I had mine with chicken – will probably order a burger that way, on my next visit, as a better-than-most Celiac solution), are especially good. Nice, attentive, but unobtrusive, service, and warmed milk (or half-and-half, on request) with the on-the-table French press coffee is a really nice touch.

    What a pleasant discovery. Highpoint was the highpoint of our day. The watermelon steak was unique and frankly I was apprehensive about trying it initially. My friend's Sandwich was also great. Enjoyed the non rushed service! Will be back in a couple of weeks!

    Dined on 5/11/2013
    For starters I really dislike having a reservation. arriving on time, entering a partially filled restaurant and then being offered the worst table in the house. It took convincing to get a better table. Although the restaurant indicted vegan there were only a limited number of choices.. Food was good. Our waitress was great. Great food for a bar and meeting place for a small group.

    My co-worker and I went for a business meeting to this little gem. Although pricey, the service was excellent and the food was very tasty. We appreciated our servers knowledge of the menu. Recommended dish would be the wrap as it is made fresh to order.

    Not your mother's meatloaf served with mac and cheese and green beans was outstanding. The waitress recommended the porkchop which was one of her favorites, my husband loved it. Even the vegetables served with the entrees were outstanding.

    I have been there several times. This time I was a bit disappointed in the food. I brought a couple that had never been, and I had raved about the food in the past. But maybe a different chef mid-week? I've only eaten there on the weekends. Just sent my son there last Saturday and he liked it. But Wednesday's meal was a bit disappointing. Drinks were good though.

    I really enjoyed going to Highpoint. Their Cod is excellent. Their Happy hour is also good since they give the happy hour in whole restaurant and not just the bar, so we could sit in the cafe outside and enjoy the Happy Hour. Will be back soon.

    Staff very welcoming and accommodating. The restaurant is a casual restaurant which is sorely needed in Chelsea for a casual meal. The food is good, portions hearty - we were very comfortable. Love the homemade doughnut holes brought to each table - nice touch and yummy. We had pancakes and a grilled veggie wrap for lunch and the homemade wrap was delicious. Pancakes were light and well cooked. French press coffee for table (would have liked a darker roast). We'll be back.
