Delicious food, the most tender pork chop I've ever eaten. Great view of Manhattan. Service was attentive and friendly without being over the top.
Very nice restaurant. My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Our server was nice and was very helpful with helping us choose a meal. Overall it is a perfect restaurant in a perfect location.
Disappointed because of the table location. I asked for nice view and they gave me the table in the corner.
The view of NY night life from our table is wonderful. The meals are very presentable and quite tasty. The service throughout the evening is great. However, the recommended specialty appetizer has very small portion with expensive price tag with it.
There was no music as advertised
Food was good but overpriced for portion
Service was great very nice atmosphere
The food is delicious and innovative. The wait staff is seasoned and on their game. The sweeping views of the Manhattan Skyline are breathtaking. Fabulous special occasion place. Spectacular
PLEASE leave your babies home. A couple brought their who screeched the entire time
Can't say enough about the restaurant itself. The food was excellent, service was great (except the girl who brought the food to the table....no personality), ambiance beautiful. Celebrated my wife's Birthday and she LOVED IT. Thanks for the memorable evening.
Excellent service — staff was well informed regarding food and wine options. And you can’t beat the view of the NYC skyline!
We celebrated our wedding anniversary and it was perfect from beginning to end!
Excellent food and service with one of thr most beautiful views imaginable.
Beautiful dining experience. I had not researched prior to scheduling reservation and learned from our server that we were under dressed and that the chef was very disappointed that all 10 of us did not order an entree’. That was really distasteful in my opinion but ambiance, service and food was amazing. Note- business casual+ and order entrees’. 🙂
This was our second visit to the restaurant. We loved the food, service and atmosphere of the restaurant the first time and were not disappointed the second time. There are beautiful views of NYC as well as the surrounding area. Our food was beautifully presented and delicious and the whole meal thoroughly enjoyable. We look forward to returning.
Always a good bet when cost is not a consideration. Good for special occasions.
The food was spectacular. It was the night before Christmas Eve so very busy.
The view is amazing! It is a great place for a date or special occasion.
The Highlawn Pavilion is our special celebration restaurant. We found it disappointing this visit. The service was stiff, inattentive, slow, and uncaring. The food was very good, but not excellent. The view is magnificent.
I had a wonderful dinner st the Highlawn Pavillion for 12 of us
I loved the table
The food was delicious everyone enjoyed it
They were well prepared to accommodate us
I will go back again
The pork chop was great
The halibut scrumptious
The oysters were so good I had two servings
Pasta dish amazing
The wine was great
Well with it
Very enjoyable evening
Exceptional night at the Highlawn...one of mu favorites and this night was no exception. Food was outstanding, Chef always does very creative things and finds outstanding ingredients. Best part of the night was the server. Owen. When you go there ask for him, extremely attentive but not overbearing. He knows his menus, the Chef, wine and even has a great sense of humor. Great night, GREAT RESTAURANT!
Decked out for the holidays it is a wonderfully warm and inviting spot to celebrate with family and friends.food is always great and on a clear nite like tonight you can not beat the view..
Really enjoyed being out, staff was helpful, food was great, very festive
This was the first time I had dinner at Highlawn Pavilion, as I usually come here for lunch. The food is good, but not spectacular, but the prices are ridiculously expensive! The food choices and options are no different than what other restaurants in the area offer and I think the prices reflect the spectacular view of Manhattan (if you're sitting by the window).
Sadly we lost a necklace at the coat check and when I returned to ask about it, the coat check lady's English was so poor, she had no idea what I was even asking.
I may continue coming here for lunch but I will not return for dinner. Pasta for $31 is ridiculous and a bottle of wine for $120 is also very high - that was the least expensive bottle of white!
Another awesome dinner experience at Highlawn. Never disappointed. Butternut squash soup and beet salad were fantastic as were the swordfish and halibut main dishes. Thanks for another memorable evening.
Our dinner was fabulous! We had the halibut, salmon, and filet and all 3 were on point. The pumpkin cheesecake and creme brûlée’s were to die for! We have been here before and it won’t be our last. Lucas our server was awesome! Great staff and food!
We went to the Highlawn Pavilion Restaurant for the first time, to celebrate my Father’s 89th birthday. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for the Holidays and the service was outstanding. They have a very nice menu, with a good selection of food to choose from and the food was prepared perfectly. It is a perfect place for an elegant night out or to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant sits inside of the Eagle Rock reservation and it has great views of the city lights on a clear night. We will definitely come back again.
Always special. Beautiful during the holidays as well as always.
The Highlawn Pavilion NEVER disappoints! I got married here, have been back for anniversary and birthday dinners, and have ALWAYS had a great experience. Attentive waiters, fine food and drink, and wonderful ambiance. Old world elegance with a view!
Superior food and service. Really interesting menu.
We've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food and variety is excellent and the service is great
It’s always a 5 star dining experience at he Highlawn. Great food, ambience and service!
A special place to meet friends for lunch and for that special celebration.
I , once again, had the pork chop. It is so good and always cooked perfectly. Service was not as impeccable as I usually experience but still very pleasant
While our main courses were wonderful, we were very surprised to find the rolls cold and hard. For the kind of prices you pay at this restaurant, you should be getting warm fresh rolls. In addition there were several large parties, and while the room was very big and we could’ve been seated anywhere, we were seated right between these large parties. The noise level was awful. In addition to that, there was no water in the ladies room, an unthinkable situation!
Perfect evening from start to finish. The halibut was outstanding as was the lobster corn chowder. Looking forward to returning!
We had a pleasurable experience with outstanding service at a table overlooking the NYC skyline.
We come here often to celebrate special occasions and to enjoy outside dining in summer months.
Limited menu but there’s something for everyone. Food is very good. Service was exceptional.
But the restaurant is dated. Needs a facelift. It was definitely a special night out....15 years ago.
One thing you can’t argue....the views of the city are breathtaking.
Menu hasn’t changed in 2 years! Disappointing in that respect!
Farro Soup was outstanding. Halibut was plentiful and served in a delicious sauce. Desserts were delicious and beautiful to see. It was a clear day and we had an excellent view of the city skyline. The decor was somewhat tired but would come back for the food and service.
One of my favorite restaurants....one of the best views in NJ, outstanding and consistent food and service. You will not be disappointed!!!
Great view of NYC Skyline on a clear day or night; food is very good, service attentive and noise level manageable. Very nice experience.
One of the nicest views in northern New Jersey, this restaurant also has a fine menu and seasonal food. Try to book at sunset and you will be treated to a day and evening show. The wine list is also impressive.
