    Sat outside , seating area was perfect with an awesome view. Waiter was polite and timing of everything was just right. I got a salad with shrimp, although I wish it had come with more shrimp it was delish. Others in my party got the strip steak which was also great and the fried calamari. Prices were as expected.Overall great spot would definitely go back

    I thought I was booking an upscale restaurant and it really wasn't that. I think they are trying to find their niche. Sports bar(many TV screens), pizzas, entrees, music vibe all mixed together and everything clashes. The place was crowded watching the games so I guess they were repeats. Service was very good but the food was blah. I will not be returning.

    My fiancée and I went for a date night. We went on a Monday so it wasn’t too busy. Service was great. There is a nice view of the skyline from the window. We shared a jumbo pretzel as an app which was yummy. For dinner I had some sides (I’m vegan/vegetarian) so I ordered the Brussels sprouts, broccolini, and French fries. It was more than enough food! And it was all delicious! Would definitely order it again. My fiancée ordered the Filet Mignon and he was beyond happy. He also wanted a special cocktail so he went to the bar to order it directly from the bartender. It was a rather long and complicated cocktail and they didn’t have all the ingredients that go into it but the bartender was able to improvise and make a version of it was that came out great! I don’t know the bartenders name but kudos to him! For cocktails I started with the Don Diablo which is a mezcal based cocktail (I love mezcal and spicy drinks in general), then I had the Oasis which was a gray whale gin based sweet cocktail with a guava foam. Both made perfectly! This place is pricey so for me it’s very much a special treat. But the next time I am up to splurge we will definitely be coming back!

    My friends and I had never been to the Highwood before and were pleasantly surprised. My friend from CA was hesitant to order the civiche but she did and said it was the THE best she had ever eaten. The seafood was fresh and the sauce it was in with the tigers milk was outstanding. The fried calamari was fresh and crunchy. We also Reccomeded the Brussels sprout appetizer with bacon. The summer salad and the taco salad were fresh and flavorful too. Great location and great views of the city.

    Calamari was not good. Drinks expensive but good. My husband had the veal chop he said it was good & huge. Waiter was very nice. Door girl was snutty. Manager was nice came to check on us. Crowd gets younger as the night progresses.

    Beautiful place and beautiful view, but the food is just ok and way pricey for what you get. A couple of tacky things, one the bathroom guy reminds me when I used to go to night clubs in the 90’s, and woman taking pictures of couples and others for a fee, the place where they come around with a rose. I’m not sure that I would spend my money here again

    PRO's Very fast service, Staff was very friendly and prompt... Lots of space for seating. Pretzel was huge. Nice seating looking at water CONS:The Omelet was really small...about the size of a deck of cards...so i ordered a 2nd one. Salad came with no dressing. Nachos had maybe 2 teaspoons cheese.

    From the time we walked in the hostesses greeted us with a friendly smile. The food and wait staff were accurate and checked on us often. We had so much fun and really enjoyed the DJ. This is definitely a good place to have "date night" with spectacular NYC views, amazing food and drinks. The Highwood gets five stars from me! Good places are hard to find with this type of energy and this is one of them.

    The waitstaff is exceptional. They work as a team and care for their customers despite it being a VERY busy Friday night during March Madness with a hometown team playing.
