Let’s start with the weakpoints: The lobster bisque was good, but we’ve had better. The halal wagyu was very good, but forgettable (through no fault of their own, I’ll explain). On the better side: Their mocktails, particularly the strawberry mojito and tropical fruit punch, were really good. The fried calamari was on point. The bread was very good, especially with the eggplant dip. Sweet potato fries were excellent, as well as the potato au gratin. Now for the truly memorable: The risotto, one of the best I’ve ever had. The kobe beef tasting, though expensive, was well worth it (I do not recommend ordering any other steak with it, as it will ruin the other steak, even if it is another wagyu). The goji berry creme brulee and the passion fruit sorbet were exactly what was needed to end the dining experience with a bang.

Arranging a birthday celebration for two the night before Thanksgiving could have been problematic, especially for a group of six. But, Shiraz was up for the challenge! They welcomed us warmly, guided us through the menu and and included thoughtful "extras" with each course. The Iranian appetizers were tasty and plentiful and the entrees superb (Note: try one of the different varieties of rice which accompanies most plates!). We were feeling pampered and happily full when Shiraz topped the evening off with a grand finale consisting of a selection of their unique desserts dotted with birthday candles! Thank you, Shiraz for everything.

The server Chad was one of the most attentive servers I’ve ever come across. And he shared the lovely history of the bar which gave us chills. The burger was fantastic. Good, chill music. Not super loud. Very affordable.

Highwater was a nice rooftop. The food was good. The service was exceptional! I would like for them to server take order, instead of placing the order for food & drinks at the bar. I look forward to coming back to the Highwater Rooftop in the near future!!!
