The service was very attentive and helpful. The chauteubrian was perfectly don and the accompanying crisped spinach and broiled vegetables and broiled tomatoes and sautéed onions were also perfectly done. It was a great meal. Definitely recommend it for any special guest or occasion.

The restaurant has a few different dining areas all with a different feel. It does not seem cohesive. Food is OK, not worth all the hype.

All of our dinner was delightful. Wolfgang's bringing together of classic European recipes while using the traditions of the south was terrific. Likewise, the extensive wine selections and excellent and timely service were both a "10". While our late call for a FR reservation only made 5:30 a choice to dine--we were not rushed. We will return!

If you like eating outside, the back deck is an awesome spot and also the front patio. Inside is dusky and old feeling, but cozy. Ordered the bisque, very tasty, but could have been thicker. Crab cake was full of meat, but dry to my liking. The shrimp were too crunchy and seemed overdone. My husband got the trout, pretty bland. For the money, I expected a little more delicacy. Maybe their steaks are good!? We didn't order because they were pretty pricey. I would return to sit out on the back deck for a cocktail, though!

We did have reservations and they were ready for us when we walked in the door. Our waitress provided excellent service. The food was delicious. There were four of us and we all felt our dinners to be excellent. This restaurant has been in a Highlands, N.C. for many years. I highly recommend it!

We enjoyed a great dinner on Thursday. Was not as crowded as the previous Thursday. We enjoyed the veal medallions and the Fish special. Both were excellent. Wolfgang’s is a great restaurant and we recommend sitting in the primary dining area or the “bar bistro” which has a slightly different menu that is just as enjoyable.
