About Highball & Harvest
A Modern Approach to Southern-Inspired Cuisine
Aside from the classic cocktail, a highball is a train conductor’s signal to depart at full speed. It was how Central Florida’s abundant harvests moved from field to table, an iconic symbol of the region’s agricultural might. Highball & Harvest (H&H) pays homage to this legacy, with menus laden with ingredients from local farms, as well as our own green-growing efforts. We pluck fresh produce from our on-site 7,000- square-foot garden at Whisper Creek Farm. Handcrafted cocktails are infused with seasonal fruits and herbs, and create a culinary adventure that is as inspiring as it is memorable.

Highball & Harvest Ratings and Reviews
The service was very slow. Our appetizer came out right before the entrees and it was cold (we ordered the grilled oysters). The food was over cooked. My chicken was so dry I had to sip water to swallow it and my husbands steak was well past the medium rare he ordered. The side dishes were much the same way: dried out and over cooked. Even though I only took one bite the server never asked me what was wrong or if there was an issue with the food. He did try to comp our dessert citing the slow kitchen but we didn’t care to eat anything else. When the bill arrived our two cocktails had been comped which was nice but if they thought there was an issue I would expect our server or a manager to inquire. Despite a very nice atmosphere we will not be back
While the food was superb, it was our waitress, Angelica, that created a memorable visit. H&H is a superb restaurant. The menu offers an eclectic array of unique, one-of-a-kind specialties. If you enjoy a comfortable ambience enhanced by terrific service then H&H is the place for you.
This restaurant, in the Ritz Carlton, has a very very limited menu. My food was not very good and I left starving. It was also so noisy at lunch we had to yell to make ourselves heard. Would never go back. In perspective, we frequently stay at Ritz Carltons around the world, eat out very frequently and have diverse palates. It simply is sub par, especially for a Ritz.
Had an amazing time at H&H, ahead some drinks at bar prior to reservation. Bartender/Mixologist RB was amazing, was attentive and very passionate for his craft. Started the night right. We just moved to Orlando six months ago and this was by far our best experience at any restaurant. And we live in Winter Park where the “restaurant scene” is supposedly the best in Orlando. If this was a local restaurant for us it would be a weekly thing.
Phenomenal experience. The food and drink were both exceptional. Our server, Hunter, was one of the most capable and interesting waiters we have ever come across. Robbie, our bartender, was a true artist who created delicious and innovate drinks. Highly recommend all around.
We expected a romantic evening, but there were a lot of kids (We have 2 children, but we’re having a weekend away to celebrate my husband’s birthday). Every table but ours had children. And also live entertainment. We were way over dressed. Most people wore shorts and tee shirts. Although, the menu seemed more high end than casual, I was shocked to see it so casual at The Ritz. The entrance to the restaurant was covered in plastic because they were painting and doing repairs. We weren’t even sure we were in the right place at first. I was shocked to see this happening at such an upscale resort. My initial attraction to this restaurant was its farm to table menu. The food was great and the bread appetizer was amazing. Our servers were fantastic. One even did magic tricks for us. The restaurants decor was nice. My only suggestion would be to advertise some place that this is a casual, kid-friendly restaurant and maybe that there Is construction going on.
Great farm to table place. Waiter was a bit on the quiet side, but nice and attentive. They were able to make one of the salads in a 1/2 portion (which was still large). The chicken and egg was good, but also larger than expected. No room for dessert, but the choices looked good.
Wish I could give 4.5 stars. Food was eclectic, delicious, and as with all the Ritz restaurants incorporates locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. The server was excellent, one of the best we've had.
We had brunch the next morning and it is among the best quality available in town.
My husband and I love to go to Highball and Harvest. We live locally, but also stay at the hotel a few times a year. Every meal at H&H is fantastic. Annie, the manager is a dream. We just love her. Monir has always been our go to waiter. He is a kind and knows just wait to suggest. Everyone we go they both make it so special.
WOW! Everything about Highball and Harvest was absolutely amazing. Everything that we had was delicious! My Husband and when for a date night without the kids. The moment we walked in, the hostess Jahira gave us a very warm welcome and seat us right away in a nice comfy booth. We were so surprised of our tables. Jahira had Put Rose Pedals On Our tables and had two Complimentary glasses of champagne waiting for us. She went above and beyond to make sure that my husband and I had a awesome night. The Food Was Delicious, our server Mounir was outstanding very nice. Love this place very friendly,very unique the atmosphere is very nice and the decor of the restaurant it’s amazing. We definitely look forward to back to Highball and Harvest...
We've been before, the food is very good, interesting plating ideas, the only negative thing I would say due to it being located in the Ritz Carlton the prices are high, especially the drinks. So if your looking for a nice dinner go here, but save the drinking for somewhere else.
This restaurant really meets the high standards of the Ritz-Carlton it is located in. From the moment our car pulled to the entrance to the moment we left, service was immaculate. The restaurant is easy to find in the huge hotel and there is no detail left unattended. The space itself is massive, but with tasteful couches and lounge areas it felt comfortable and intimate. Not too stuffy, and fresh. We were seated right away at a table with a nice view, appropriate for two people. I noticed right away that they had configurations suitable for many different party sizes. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and had great recommendations. I tried a special cocktail that had vodka, blueberry jam, and ginger beer and it was delicious. My boyfriend had their take on a cosmopolitan which was refreshing and sweet, but with a little kick. I ordered the High on the Hog which came with a Japanese pork belly cut, squash with seasonal vegetables all seasoned and roasted beautifully. The presentation was also gorgeous, with an appropriate portion size. The pork belly was seasoned a little lightly, but when eaten with its accompaniments the flavors came together deliciously.
My boyfriend had the butcher’s secret cut which was a flank steak, as well as the pimento mac & cheese. The mac and cheese had a generous portion of cheese, which was nice and decadent, however the shortbread the dish came with was quite hard, but overall delectable. We had the mini donuts with coffee ice cream and hazelnut cream and those were to die for. Overall everything tasted fresh and farm-to-table as they advertise. I enjoyed myself a lot and though the restaurant felt like a different environment from the hotel, the threads of great service and high quality tied them together.
