We went for New Years dinner and our anniversary. The ambience was a quaint but a little dated. The service was excellent, but the food was average at best.

Chef owned and operated. Steak was good to perfection. Lamb medallions were similar cooked to a perfect medium. Amazing extensive wine list. Good service - not overly attentive, but there when needed. Suprisingly priced - compared to comporable restaurants in big cities.

Wolfgang’s was nothing short of accommodating. Our waiter was excellent. The seating hostess was very social and made us feel welcome. We ordered the strip steak and the shrimp special with risotto (YUM!). They even made me a “mocktail” as I’m expecting. And they were more than willing to allow us to take dessert to-go. We will be back!

I’m in the high tech space and own several restaurants around the country. Lousy operation. Rude servers and nothing more then a franchise operation. Much better restaurants in Highlands on Main Street don’t waist your time and money with this mediocre establishment.

My wife and I visited Wolfgangs for the first time tonight. The food was excellent in every respect, from the salad, entree then dessert. The environment was quite cozy and romantic. The staff was extremely pleasant. The prices are reasonable given the 5 star quality of the food. This is our new "go to" for any overnight trip to Highlands. There is at least one fireplace. We were lucky enough to be seated near it. Just know that when making a reservation if that appeals to you. I would make a reservation online as it's difficult to get in without one. We wanted to go somewhere nice and honestly most restaurants of this quality are quite stuffy with a risk of rude staff. Not so with Wolfgangs.

Exceptional service from the moment we arrived. Our daughter had set up surprise wine & appetizers to celebrate my 66th birthday. The Venison is the absolute finest. If you have been reluctant or have not visited Wolfgang’s, you are missing the best restaurant in Highlands!

We visit Highlands once or twice a year and Wolfgang’s is one of our favorite restaurants . We spent Thanksgiving week in Highlands and had Thanksgiving lunch at Wolfgang’s! My husband had the roast and I had the shrimp and grits and BOTH were delicious. We did not miss turkey and dressing at all! Thank you Wolfgang’s restaurant and stafff!

I had the short ribs and my husband had the veal schnitzle. Both were delicious. My husband and I agreed that it was the best schnitzle we had ever had. We had cocktails prior to dinner, so decided to go with the half bottle of Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet, and it was excellent. The hostess seated us by the window so it was a great view with the twinkling lights that were hung outside. They did not have the fire going in the fireplace in our dining room, but I did see that the fire was lit in the other dining room. Warning, take your coat if you are going to the restrooms as you do have to walk outdoors to get to them if you are in the front dining room.

Wonderful experience. A perfect salad with the freshest greens and light citrus dressing. Main dishes of Snapper, Shrimp, and Trout were perfectly prepared. The Apple Strudel was authentic and delicious. Service was impeccable. Thank you.

Food was very good. Potato/spinach side lacked salt. Everything else we ate was great. A little chilly in the restaurant, otherwise a great experience and we'd go back.

My wife and I really liked this restaurant. Warm and cozy on a cold night! Food was very good,however, lacked any gluten free menu options. Our server bent over backwards to try and help but the chef didn't seem to share her enthusiasm. The night before, the restaurant next door really went out of their way to help us. Too bad

l really enjoyed the beef short ribs with collards and mashed potatoes. Great comfort food. We love sitting in the Bistro or either outdoors to people watch. The owner always comes around to make sure you are being taken care of. Wolfgang's is one our top 2 restaurants in Highlands.

Food was great! We were expecting a crowd so made reservations but it did not appear to be crowded as we were 1 of 3 tables on the outside porch. My only complaint is that the service felt very rushed. We got the feeling that they were trying to get us out of there, even though our reservation was for 7:45. I’d go back for the food, but might go earlier on the evening!

Very enjoyable evening sharing dinner with another couple we had just met at our inn. The restaurant was very accommodating about changing our table from 2 to 4. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we were not made to feel rushed.
