Birthday dinner was great! I had the trout & my husband had the venison & both were cooked to perfection! Chef is amazing!!
We ended up in a far away area from the main dining room where overgrown ivy was coming through the windows and the fans looked like they have not been cleaned in years. Food was ok but overrated as the presentation was a far cry from what you see in the advertisements.
Food was delicious. However, it was a splurge for an anniversary. Salmon and lamb were cooked to perfection. Pecan shrimp and seasonal salad was also delicious. Extensive wine must. I cannot think of any complaints other than it’s a bit pricey. Enjoyed the evening with my husband.
Wolfgang’s is and will always be our go to place in the Highlands . The staff is first class . The menu is varied and perfectly executed . If I didn’t think the person who gave me the recipe for the lobster/shrimp bisque , would be exiled , I would have pressured them for it . My wife , who is an excellent chef is going to try to replicate it . I am not confident
Every time we come to eat the food is always excellent and its consistent. Diverse menu selection and lots of great options for the value. Have to place to eat.
Fantastic food, attentive service and staff. Overall a wonderful experience!
We will be back.
Wolfgang's Resstaurant and Wine Bistro is absolutely the best dining in Highlands. The menu is a piece of art and offers so many choices that anyone can find a great meal that is sure to please. Our party of four ordered different appetizers, which we shared, and it provided a beginning to a memorable dining experience. The wine list is extensive and
wine by the glass offerings are very adequate. Our schnitzel, loin of lamb, short ribs and fish were all perfectly prepared. Our waiter was excellent. You simply will not find a
better dining experience in the Highlands.
Very good food and service was excellent
Welcoming and seating was fine. Our server, Daniel, gave us the right amount of attention. My meal (crab cakes, fried shrimp, and vegetables) was well-prepared and presented. The shrimp were almost overcooked, though. The "house" bourbon sour - Jack Daniel's, honey, lemon, was tasty and ample.
We expected a higher end decor, as the back room where we dined is looking worn.
Also, the music was a mixture of pop rock (Chicago, Jackson Five), and though not loud, did not lend itself to a fine dining atmosphere.
Overall, the food was tasty and plentiful, and the service was admirable. We would dine there again and request seating in the front section, which seemed more in line with Wolfgang's advertising.
Simply out perfect!! Great service, great Covid protocol and great menu and food.
Great In Everyway. Anniversary Dinner was exceptional
We make our dinner reservations here ahead of our hotel reservations.
Local gem....great menu...entrées superb! Will dine again when in Hjghlands.
Great service and fantastic food! Always a great experience!
Excellent meal. We were not greeted very warmly by the host staff nor by our server who was also slow to take our drink order. After that the service was fine and we enjoyed ourselves. The server’s recommendations were helpful. My husband and I shared the lamb. It was outstanding. Our vegetarian friend was very impressed with what she was able to order. It was beautifully presented as well. Would definitely return.
Great food and great service! Thanks for a lovely evening!
One of the top restaurants in Highlands and never, ever disappoints!
Great overall experience. The signature dishes were phenomenal and reasonably priced. The service was "spot on."
Wonderful and service!! We had the sea bass and pork chops.
Excellent food and service ...Had a very nice rime
Very nice staff, great server, food very good
We visited Wolfgang’s for my birthday this past week. Great location on Main Street and it appears that a lot of thought was put into place to be covid compliant and keep guests comfortable. We were seated in a downstairs dining room in what appeared to be a different wing of the restaurant.
While nothing “bad” or “wrong” occurred, it wasn’t anything to write home about. The food and portions were fine, drinks fine, service was fine....you get the idea. I agree with other comments stating that a decor and menu update would go a LONG way.
We had a wonderful dinner! The food and service was excellent!! We were able to sit outside which was great and made us more comfortable. I definitely would recommend!
Great experience. Food was wonderful and service was was top notch. Everyone was very friendly. Dessert was comped for bday, which included a sparkler. Just FYI- no real bar to sit at before dinner so don’t come early but the drinks we had were wonderful once seated.
Wolfgangs was the perfect restaurant for a special occasion and great food! Crab cakes are definitely a must!
GREAT FOOD , SERVICE AND ATMOSPHERE WILL VISIT AGAIN .
Very great restaurant! They made our anniversary special!
Food was excellent! The ambience was fair...needs background music and dimmer lighting.
As we entered Wolfgang’s Restaurant Wine Bistro we were greeted and our temperatures were taken. They were a little slow on getting us our two bottle of beers. The dining area had plexiglass partitions. We celebrated my birthday and were treated kindly. The food was yummy. We will be back.
My mother and I have never been treated so poorly at a restaurant. The hostess and chef were beyond rude to us. We had a late reservation and clearly were an inconvenience to them. They should not take 7:45 reservations if they can’t provide a meal. We never received any food that was ordered. The whole experience was uncalled for....I’m upset the most because we were celebrating my mother’s birthday and drove 6 hours to be here. We are guests of Old Edward Inn and their customer service is a much better representation of the Highlands than this place! Four65 saved the evening with amazing staff and pizza!!!!
The food was good but like the atmosphere, it could use some updating. We were pulled in by the name like most first-timers to the area. While we enjoyed our meal we felt that it was expensive for the overall experience and vs. other options in town. If we were to return to the area again this would not be my first choice for a nice meal but it certainly wouldn't be my last. In summary, the restaurant feels dated and the menu could use a bit of modern flair as well.
The food and service was excellent
Food and service were great
Chef Wolfgang Green never disappoints! His unique German background and experience as Executive Chef for the Brennan Family of Commander’s Palace in New Orleans makes for an amazing culinary flair. If you are planning for a large group ask for the round table in the wine room to enjoy an even more unique experience.
Our favorite restaurant on the trip. We ordered appetizers, soup and entrees and it was all amazing. The filet was one of the best we’ve had and we go to lots of upscale steakhouses. Our waiter was attentive and helpful and accommodated our needs. The atmosphere was cozy and romantic but also good for groups! I also felt like the prices were reasonable. We will be back!
It was awesome food and a great value. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The frozen Peanut Butter Pie is highly recommended!
It was our 5 year Wedding Anniversary and they seated us in front of the fireplace. Very romantic. They gave us a sparkler with dessert. We felt like royalty! Briony did a fantastic job!
The short ribs are amazing!
Great find on the main street in Highlands. Food, service, drinks all fantastic. Pricey, but welcome to Highlands. Will come back.
