One of the most COVID safe places we have been to. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was perfect on New Years Eve. Great time and extremely safe.

Everyone we spoke to in Highlands said that Wolfgang's was their favorite restaurant and we now know why. The hostess seated us immediately next to a fireplace and the waitress was outstanding. We loved our food and total experience. My granddaughter left her purse and they called and left a message on my phone. The next morning the owner/manager met us at the restaurant and graciously returned the much needed purse. We love Wolfgang's and plan to return when we visit Highlands again.

Anniversary dinner while visiting Highlands from Atlanta. Ate dinner at three nice and highly rated restaurants while while there. Clearly Wolfgang’s was the best of the three! Won’t mention the others, but you can likely determine that from the top rated locations in Opentable, etc. Simply put, excellent experience overall...service, food, atmosphere, etc. As for specific dishes...lamb is awesome, Wiener schnitzel even better, and trout is off the chart! Wolfgang himself stopped by our table to chat and is a very pleasant man. Do yourself a favor and dine here. Will likely be you best meal in Highlands.

I have had the pleasure of eating at Wolfgangs many times before so it was the place I picked to bring my closest girlfriends to experience and it did not disappoint. Haley waited on us and not only was she excellent but hilarious too. I hate that NC started the shut down thing again for restaurants this past weekend, your heart hurts for restaurants you love like Wolfgangs. Will always recommend this restaurant to friends and family!

Took my fiance there for her birthday and it was a wonderful meal. She had the pecan crusted shrimp for appetizer and I the breaded and fried brie. The main course was fantastic, she had the lamb and I the bravarian sampler. Food is cooked to perfection, wine list is extensive. Liquor drinks and beer are also available. Will be back

Five of us had dinner at Wolfgang's for a birthday celebration. From the appetizers - the brie, lobster and crab bisque - to all five of our meals, the food was outstanding. Several of us are pepper fans and as the soup was served, we looked around table noticing no salt and pepper. Well it was easy to understand why that was a clear sign of a true amazing Chef - the soup flavor was an explosion of taste - no enhancement required! The meals were excellent - mountain trout, the filet, the beef stroganoff and the veal scallopini with crawfish - we all said we'd re-order the same they were so delicious. Our server, Kevin, was attentive and delightful. One of the other staff gladly volunteered to take pictures after the restaurant surprised our birthday lady with chocolate cake served with a festive sparkler. All in all - a fantastic dining experience.

We went to Wolfgang’s in Friday 7 November 2020. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and Wolfgang. I had the smoked salmon and my husband had the escargot to start followed by the special haddock and Wiener schnitzel and we both had apple strudel to finish. Everything was delicious. Our server was informative and very pleasant. The atmosphere was good and I highly recommend this restaurant

A bit disappointed based on previous reviews. We were visiting the area from Naples, FL for our anniversary and really looked forward to a special evening. Service was outstanding, but the food was average. One of our friends had the special Beef Stroganoff and was disappointed. My husband’s steak was good and his cheese grits were REALLY good. Two of us had trout which was good. We wanted to love it, but just liked it.

One of our favorite restaurants. Halloween was busy but as always the food was great. Perhaps because it was Halloween the service was not up to it’s usual standards.
