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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
