Highland Tap Ratings and Reviews
Had moderate expectations, but, just didn’t work out. Server was pretty Koch ch clean out the whole time, had order and food temp issues but couldn’t get wait staff attention. No attempt to apologize or make it right. Four us of all shared the same experience so I doubt this is on our do over list. Sorry, but we gave it a shot.
The food was good, but the service was terrible. We had a reservation for a Christmas lunch for 6 co-workers and we were seated on time and about the same time as two other parties of 10-12. Unfortunately, it was 30 minutes before anyone took our order and almost an hour and ten mi utes before we received our food.
Classic dishes and great prime rib. Great add on menu. We had blue cheese crusted prime rib, pepper corn crusted prime rib, side of bernaise and great crab cake appetizer. All the food was delicious! The service is nice and friendly and its a great atmosphere.
We had a few new attendees at our table. They very much enjoyed their meals and the ambiance. Our wait staff was attentive and informative. Recommendations were great! Food was delicious and filling. Dessert met everyone’s expectation. Excellent choice for our meal and continuing discussions. Thank you!
When I made the reservation, I indicated that it was a birthday celebration. It was actually a double birthday celebration. Mine was yesterday and my friend's is this Friday. No mention of this was made by our host or server. Didn't expect any freebies, but a mention would have been nice.
As for ambience, where we were seated, there were smokers outside and their smoke drifted in when a nearby door was opened. The background music of classic rock were good tracks and played at a nonintrusive level. At least one nearby table was kind of loud occasionally, but not too much.
Service was friendly and efficient.
We both had the prime rib special which was tasty and cooked to our desired temperature. Her side of the potatoes au gratin and mine of asparagus with hollandaise were very good. Rib accompaniments of horseradish sauce and au jus were good complements to the meat.
Terrific option for any type meal in a cozy, quiet environment. Good for socializing or discussing business. Food was very high quality and reasonably priced. Prime rib is a particularly good value. Martini's are nicely served. Setting has a speakeasy feel, with brick walls, wooden booths, and different flare with being below street level on the Highland Ave side. Complimentary valet parking behind the building was great. All staff very cordial and welcoming.
My wife and I LOVE Highland Tap. In my opinion, they have the best steak BY FAR for the price ($30-50 per cut) in Atlanta. Brought my dad and he said it's the best streak he's ever had. I personally don't like a salty rub on a steak; I want to taste the wood fire grill and the savor, and that's what you get here. TONS of flavor. Sides are great, service is always prompt and accommodating. Wide variety of beer, too. Tops on my list for a good steak. Been many times and never disappointed.
We drove about an hour to get there because my relatives were visiting from out of town and wanted great prime rib. And Highland Tap did not disappoint. The food was great (I had the mahi mahi) and they all had Prime Rib. The service was wonderful.
I had not been there in many years and it was just as I had remembered. That's comforting, but it also meant that the decor was a little tired. The dining room could really use some sprucing up. But it is unpretentious and authentically Vi-High.
