Good, a tad bit expensive particularly for drinks but not a bad experience.

High Street on Market is very hip, and that's good and bad. The good: service was very attentive, the cocktails are inventive (I had some rye whiskey concoction with an odd name that was a nice cross between a dry Manhattan and a Sazarac), and the menu was interesting without being too out there. The bad: we seemed very rushed, even though we told our server that we were not in a hurry, and prices were high for the portion size. I got the wedge salad (with cripsy pastrami and rye croutons!) which was very good, although overdressed. The menu listing for spaghetti with clams included tabasco as an ingredient, and I asked our server if it was very hot. She said that the tabasco can be tasted but is not overwhelming. In fact, it was pretty overwhelming. Even more disappointing, a $22 "plate" turned out to be an appetizer-sized portion at best, with maybe half a dozen clams. Feeling unsatisfied, I ordered a dessert -- the lemon upside-down cake -- and it was a winning way to close out the meal. Bottom line: the food is good but expensive. You can do better in this neighborhood.

Small space with lots of hard surfaces made for very noisy dining even though place was not full. Very good service but limited menu and pricey for size of portions. We tried 2 veggie small plates plus steak and fish entrees. Food was acceptable but not outstanding.

By no fault of the restaurant, we were way out of our depths. This is for people with a fancy palate. We could not even eat our entrees. I'm sure by fancy standards this restaurant is great, but this is not a place to order food you've seen before.

Be prepared, the cheapest bottle of wine is 60 dollars. Wine week special ( which I mistakenly thought would be a deal to try new wines) was 2 three ounce glasses for 20 dollars. Food was great but very limited menu. Our waiter basically disappeared although he continued to wait on other tables. We finally got the hostess to give us our bill and she overcharged us a couple dollars on one of our appetizers. She was very apologetic but we left feeling annoyed at the whole dining experience.

We had the “leave it to us” (chef tasting) menu. It was hard to hear the food descriptions over the noise level of the space. The food came in “waves” and the pacing was well-handled. Our server made a hood wine recommendation and was attentive to beverage refills and clearing the table between waves. I would have liked a clean plate with new food and sauces, but none was offered. Our server kept asking if we were”loving” our food. I didn’t want to make a thing out of it, but some of the dishes were disappointing, some were okay and some were really delicious. Next time, if there is one, we would order specifically.

We love this place for lunch but boy were we disappointed in the dinner. Value for you money was not great, the portions were small.. 4 Brussels sprouts that were cut in half and cooked for $8.00, really? We felt that way about all the food except the entree we had which was the boar with pasta. Usta didn’t think dinner was good enough to return.

I have been at High Market a few times. However, I was a little disappointed by the sort of slow service on Saturday night. They were busy but not that busy. It was raining and it seemed slow. I like to come here because they use local, fresh ingredients. Not only the service but also I just didn't like few of the dishes. I tried their oysters - too salty. Mind you, I like salt. My other dish was the Burnt grains campanelle and again, way too salty. If it wasn't for the salt, it would've easily been my favorite dish. I couldn't finish it and refused to take it with me because I wasn't going to choke myself on salt. That same night, I woke up in the middle of the night and drank 24oz of water at once for feeling so dehydrated. Dessert was fabulous.

Commendable service and excellent food. Loud, blaring music made the patrons shout at each other across each table, raising the noise level even more. We asked to have the background music turned down; it wasn't. Great place to eat by yourself.

My first time here and loved it. Made a reservation, we were a party of 7, and we ended up coming during restaurant week, and got great value for the $35 3-course meal. Loved our server as well, super happy with the delicious food. Next I want to come for breakfast!

It was spectacular, absolutely sublime. I had the baked oysters and the shredded boar pasta, my boyfriend had the mushroom salad and the steak. Both were divine, one of the best tasting and good looking meals I’ve had in a while. The servers were really friendly and attentive as well as lively. Loved it

There were 6 of us ranging in ages from 14-85. We had a very positive experience. We shared 4 appetizers, everyone was completely satisfied! The entrées were beautiful to look at and even better to eat. I do not recall being so satisfied after a meal. My only disappointment was that no one wanted dessert! Aha, a reason to return! And, a shout out to our waitperson - who exhibited so much patience when I explained our dietary restrictions!

Cheers for the mushroom/egg dish. The lamb sausage was aromatic and tasty! Great job on the bread served with the carrot hummus. Loved everything, even the crumbs!

The menu sounded amazing but when the food came, it was all fine but nothing blew us away. Had the price point been lower, we would have been more satisfied.

We had a small piece of bone in a dish which we did not complain about but they kept making a big deal of and yet did not compensate us in any way.

Service was lovely.

Decided upon High Street on Market for our weekly date night. Restaurant was very warm and inviting with it’s fresh garland and twinkle light Christmas decor. Service was excellent! I don’t think it matters what you order as all of our dishes were delicious! Smoked Bluefish was excellent and the squid ink pasta was also delightful! Dessert was a sinfully light but decadent chocolate slice. If celebrating, I highly recommend their ‘drink pairing’ if you are going to have a couple of drinks. After 30 years of marriage I ‘celebrate’ often! It was a lovely evening and we will be back!

High Street on Market is always a pleasure and truly delicious. I have not had a thing there that I did not like and the service is always really nice, laid back but attentive. The ambiance is also really nice although some of the seating can be cramped at times. It is pretty expensive for just an every day night out (especially if you are drinking) so I like to keep it for friends/relatives in town or special celebratory dinners.

But, honestly, I think it's the best restaurant in Old City!
