Our food was excellent. I highly recommend the hibachi stir fry with filet. Even the kale salad was great, and I hate kale. My only negative is that the spelling and grammar on the menu was atrocious. But most people don't care about those things.

Made this reservation 25 Jan for dinner on 28 Feb....confirmed twice and the establishment was closed...until 2 March ....for cleaning. Way to go Open Table. This was our anniversary and a special diner for us. How does this happen?

Do not think will be using Open Table.....ever. Additionally, tried to contact Open Table...good luck with trying this....impossible. Total sh*t show.

Spent a night in Highlands and stumbled upon Midpoint thru Open Table. Our dinner was outstanding. Interesting menu with an Asian flair. Started with outstanding kale salad that was dressed perfectly. Chicken tika was the best we have ever had and Korean BBQ shrimp was terrific. Great flavor and presentation. The desserts are true works of art (see photo) and worth the hefty price tag. We could not have been happier with our meal. Enjoy!

Had a wonderful Valentine’s Dinner at Midpoint. We were greeted immediately, escorted to our table. Our waiter promptly served us water and inquired about cocktails. The food selection is vast but refined. Fresh and distinct with an open air kitchen. Ultimately we had a fabulous paced dinner with great service. The team at Midpoint just know when to visit your table and when to allow you to relax and enjoy. It was intangibles that made our night special. If you visit Highlands, NC Midpoint is a must stop. Can we give it more than 5-stars? If so, YES! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Overall we had a great experience at Midpoint. We were a group of 6, and each one of us loved our meal and appetizers. The wait staff was wonderful and accommodated our group from the start. So many great menu options from appetizers to entrees. We would definitely go back.
Only reason i didn’t give it a five was due to a rude bartender when we first arrived in, in addition to an unfriendly hostess. I made this reservation a month in advance and we waited over 20 minutes for our table. I understand it was a busy Saturday night, but what was the point of making a reservation for a larger party? While waiting for our table, we wanted to get a drink. We walked up to the bar where we saw two open seats and politely asked the main bartender for a menu. He rudely stated that a couple was sitting there and we would have to move when they came back. We stood their dumbfounded by the rude introduction and stood outside in the stairwell. One we finally got seated, we actually ended up moving from our original table due to a piece of decor that was in the middle of our table and touching the head of one in our group. A bit of a messy start, but our waiters made up for the mess.

First time in Highlands, NC and booked Midpoint as it was one of the only places in town with an open table on a Saturday night in off season. I will start with the service, it was fantastic! Super attentive, friendly, never had an empty drink...the service would make me a return customer alone. I do think they need to work on their menu, prices, and portion sizes. I felt as if a lot of the items we ordered had a similar underlying flavor to them that I didn't quite care for. We ordered the mushroom ravioli as an app. The sauce tasted like a rancid version of the garlic butter served with the bread. 6 small raviolis for $12 was alittle steep. For the main course, I stayed on the safe side and got the almost $30 fried chicken dish. The gravy with the chicken tasted similar to the ravioli cream sauce & the garlic butter! It really but a bad taste in my mouth, no pun intended. The shredded vegetables that came with the entree were so salty I couldn't finish them. We also got the stir fry which was over $30 for a few scallops, a couple shrimp and some small pieces of skirt steak. However, the meat was good and the sauce and noodles were delicious! But for the money, I expected more meat. Lastly, the whole pastry chef experience was confusing and random. She seemed like a third party vendor in the restaurant? And had random "fruits" that were desserts? None of the desserts seemed to fit the "trendy" vibe Midlands is trying to achieve. We watched another table beside us stare in confusion at their tiny "apple/heart" on a dish and seemed disappointed at the white cream in the hallow middle. She made me feel like she worked on commission based on desserts sold. It was a weird experience to end the night. But like I said, our server was awesome but the food was sub-par and for how expensive our tab was, I expected more.

We sat in the bar. It was a little noisy. The bartender was also our server and he was excellent. The service was fast and the desserts were absolutely phenomenal. My husband had the stirfry. It was delicious and a huge portion. I had the trout which was delicate and flavorful.

Slow and inattentive service, average food and restaurant not well distanced inside or in the checkin area. People packed in a bar area waiting to be seated for their reservations - had to stand near non-distanced unmasked parties seated at the bar. Management needs to evaluate safety processes and restaurant distancing.

We dined at Midpoint on a recent weekend evening. The restaurant was CLEARLY overbooked. EVERY table was full in a state where 50% capacity mandates are still in place. Many people did not wear masks when coming and going. The space is very chaotic. No one seemed to be leading service staff. Our server was a shop helper friend of the owners who came in because they were overbooked - she came to our table maybe four times (for a group of four with a $400+ dinner check). They didn't have the bottle of wine we ordered, but the 'owner' brought a comparable bottle, dropped it on table after we said we were OK with the substitute, and she walked away without a word. Table was set with glassware, so we assumed they were busy and we didn't mind opening the bottle ourselves. But, strange. She returned almost 10 minutes later with flutes. The food is not bad. But, the situation inside at this restaurant right now is not safe, the decor and menu both struggle with identity.

Great service - one can see, that they are going to a big bother to train their staff; food is extravagant-delicious, unique and, of course, very contemporary with flavors from around the world. It reminds me of slow-food restaurants in Europe.
We were here twice and, for sure, will come again.
