We were escorted to the back dining area which was cold and uncomfortable - even after they lit the gas fireplace.
The food was very good and the service was good.
On our way out, my wife went to the ladies room. The floor was very wet and slippery - no sign up to be careful. She almost went down. Why would they wait to mop at peak dining time???

We always love Wolfgang's because the food is wonderful, and the atmosphere is a bit more relaxed and comfortable than that other popular place in The Highlands! The Wedge was delightful, and so was the crabcakeand shrimp, the lavender salmon and the peanut butter pie! We had a wonderful evening there in August when we were able to sit outside in the lovely courtyard. It was too cold this time, but we had a nice evening downstairs!

I was celebrating my birthday. I thought it was odd I wasn't offered a complimentary dessert (although, they did comp the one my dining partner ordered, since I didn't order one). I received a sparkler in half a strawberry. Then I saw a beautiful piece of cake with a sparkler in it that would serve a couple of people go by to another table. I asked about it and was told by their server that "they were locals and owned a business in town." Hmmm! When I complained, I was brought a 4 pc. box of Kilwin chocolates. So, all in all, it turned out fine. Actually, it turned out to be very funny.

The lobster bisque was real salty with No lobster!! The snapper was overly seasoned you could not taste the flash. The crawfish was just ok. Not a 5 star restaurant!!

We always go to Wolfgang every time we are in Highlands area.
I love the schnitzel and my husband loves their salmon with Israeli couscous. The selection of wines by the glass is very good.
Ask to sit in the original dining room which is in the back down a few stairs It is small and beautiful with a fireplace.

We have been to Wolfgang's on numerous occasions and we have never been disappointed. Chef knows how to prepare dinners using many unique seasonings for unmatched flavors. Service is excellent and server very knowledgeable. This is our go to restaurant for special occasions.

Every time we get up to Sky Valley, we make a side trip to Highlands to dine at Wolfgang's. It's one of our favorites and has never disappointed us.

Very nice restaurant on the Main Street in Highlands. Food and service were above average although the atmosphere left a little to be desired since we were on the back patio with plastic draping. The food was good and the prices were reasonable for a high end restaurant.

Finally, a restaurant worthy of praise on all counts. We had an early reservation because a later time slot was not available, so it was quiet. Service was absolutely impeccable. A woman came by to greet us and see if we wanted something from the bar. Our waiter stopped by, introduced himself, fully aware of what was underway, what the specials were and that it was my birthday. The menu is so diverse, it was difficult to decide what to order. The pricing is beautifully moderate, making ordering a relaxing, indulgent experience. I had a field greens salad with citrus and the veal with crawfish. The citrus was just the right balance for the sharp flavor of the dressing, and the veal was butter tender and topped with a generous servicing of perfect crawfish. My husband had lobster bisque and Viener Schnitzel. Both were excellent. We shared a crème brulee and coffee for desert. While we were there, the chef owner walked through the dining room several times to chat with diners, and seemed to know most of them. It was a rare experience in todays world of chain restaurants and celebrity chefs who open a place with the idea of making a quick fortune and then opening a second location. It was honestly the best American restaurant I've been to in quite some time. Thanks Wolfgang!

Ivan was our server. He was polite and professional. Always attentive.

I must say the young man serving water (and many other tasks) was awesome. He was never at a standstill. Always helping and going full speed. Wished I could have gotten his name. (Red hair)
