About Hi-Life Restaurant - Upper West Side
Hi-Life Bar & Grill is one of the Upper Westside’s most popular and longstanding neighborhood restaurants (est. 1991). Hi-Life's 1930's decor is the backdrop for bar & grill classics like flame-grilled steaks and hamburgers, broiled and seared fresh fish specials, bountiful "Big Bowls" of pasta and entree salads, and last but not least a Sushi/Raw bar. (Hi-Life was the first NYC restaurant to install a traditional sushi bar in a non-Japanese restaurant setting in 1993. Expertly prepared sushi & sashimi at Hi-Life is a natural extension of the classic Raw Bar one might expect in our 1930's environment.)
Hi-Life also serves a "traditional Westside" brunch that features fresh squeezed juices, complimentary blueberry muffins & cinnamon toast as well as a 2.95 brunch cocktail deal.
In the warmer months Hi-Life outdoor seating includes 28 seats along Amsterdam Ave and another 18 seats on our 83rd St side.

Hi-Life Restaurant - Upper West Side Ratings and Reviews
I needed a place for a casual dinner before an early movie. The menu is varied, the food was fresh and tasty -- but not for foodies. There was something for everyone. The service was very good and we were given a table in a pleasant corner with a view of the street. I would go again even though the food was not exceptional.
We were visiting from PA and Hi-Life seemed like a great neighborhood kind of restaurant where people gather every week. The decorating was eclectic and funky and it had a lively vibe. We all had a version of Eggs Benedict and all enjoyed them very much - we were startled to see 3 perfectly poached eggs on each plate. The service was good and overall I would say that it was a great value for the quality and quantity of food.
The Hi-Life Restaurant was a good choice for dinner. We liked the menu choices and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. It was nice sitting at an outdoor table as it was a beautiful evening and lots of people watching. The food we had was well made and tasted great. We would definitely eat here again.
Good neighborhood bar like atmosphere but a lot more! Big variety menu with lots of specials. The vegetable dumplings were great. Skip the guacamole and the calamari was nothing special, but still good. I had the Cobb salad and it was perfect. Dessert were very good too!
My wife and I eat at Hi-Life on the average of once a month and have been going there for years. Obviously, we enjoy it a great deal. The main dining room tends to be active and a little noisy for our tastes which is why we eat in the café, which is quiet. There is a very wide variety of food and although I have my favorites, I vary my meals there. The food is best described as comfort food but is always well prepared and tasty. Service is punctual and prices are very reasonable. One of our very favorites places, in or out of the neighborhood. Steven Wolfe
Our Open Table Res was promptly honored, and we were given as nice outdoor table as requested.
We had a charming and tasty casual brunch, with delicious breads, and some slightly non standard selections - Good!
Service was friendly - bus staff, a little disorganized but affable. We were allowed to linger and chat long after we'd finished and paid.
