Food was outstanding. The Caesar salad was best I’ve ever had. The service was not outstanding. Sat for 15 minutes at our table before we were waited on. After that we were sort of ignored. Wait staff was not friendly and wasn’t anything special. There were no tablecloths on the table and we didn’t care for the atmosphere of the restaurant. No ambiance whatsoever. Will not gonna back even with the great food.

Wonderful wine list and absolutely the best venison I have ever put in my mouth. Served with a shredded potato layered pie with spinach and ricotta cheese as well as a beautiful little bundle of fresh broccoli and carrots. My husband enjoyed most of mine as well as his.

My wife and I have been coming to Highlands for years, but had never tried Wolfgang’s until now. So glad we did. We had crab cakes and the trout and both meals were outstanding. Service was great and atmosphere was lively. Don’t forget to have the strudel for desert!

We will definitely be back in future visits to Highlands.

Wolfgang's atmosphere can accommodate quiet & intimate or celebratory. Saturday night's celebratory experience was full of mouth-watering menu selections and delish desserts. The Wine selection satisfied 6 diverse women's tastes and thirst. Friendly staff & Excellent Service. GO!!!

This was disappointing. We booked almost a month out and was placed in the cold patio area between two buildings.

I am sorry to say I will not recommend this to my friends coming to Highlands.

First visit after several trips to the area. Atmosphere and service rating may be influenced by virus rules. Table was in rear of the building in the middle of the room and rocked/not stable -- may be the single worst table in the building. Asked to move and was accommodated. Service was slow and unengaged -- could have just been an off night. Butter for warm bread served in individual pats from the refrigerator -- cold and like Cracker Barrel. Must say the food was outstanding. Unfortunate the facility and service overshadowed great food.

Food was average. Service was below par for a $200 dinner. I was given two wine list, and no menu. Hardly ever checked on us. Just because we are going doesn’t mean we don’t tip.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Wolfgang’s. We had the spaghetti and the lamb, and our meals were fabulous. The service was friendly and excellent, and we were seated in a timely and efficient manor. Covid precautions were strictly adhered to. We definitely rate this a five-star experience. We will be dining at Wolfgang again.

So it’s not often when you get the perfect total dining experience and that is what my wife and I got last weeekend when we ate here. First, our service was really over the top incredible starting with the front desk to the hostess to Kevin our waiter. Even Wolfgang showed up at our table asking how the food was! The outside ambiance was amazing too. And the food! The portobello mushroom appetizer is one of the best we’ve had. My halibut special was incredible and did I mention the apple strudel for dessert. We have been to Highlands many times and we have a couple of go to’s so this was our first try at Wolfgang’s. You will be hard pressed to get a better combo of food, service, and ambiance anywhere in highlands. A truly great place! We can’t wait to come back!
