Outstanding service by Connor, 25yrs veteran that sets the bar in experienced bar service. And the food? Just as good as Connor's service & recommendations. The Chicken Liver appetizer with crawfish & asparagus ragout'? Unbelievable. Halibut? Incredible as well. Did I mention the desert? Banana Tart Go there

Visited with friends for a celebration. We shared two appetizers between the 4 of us and they were especially good. The entrees were nice and well prepared but not wow for the price.The service was excellent and overall the evening was enjoyable.

Enjoyed very good food and cocktails on the patio with party of 4. Service is very nice. Self parking rough but valet is offered ?free. I know its a Birmingham local fave. I go about every 3rd visit to the city. Have always eaten on the bar/patio side. The 'fine dining side' seems nice. Not sure about the service. I... More

Since moving to Atlanta, folks have said I need to go to the Highlands so the bar was set pretty high. We had a wonderful experience. The ambience, food and service were all very good. A special shoutout for the grits. They have a great wine list and we also brought a few bottles in for corkage. To their credit,... More

The food was good but not the best I've had for the price I paid. The appetizers were wonderful and I was craving more ceviche at work the next day. My entree however was no fireworks and amazingness that people ensured it would be. It wasn't bad but it wasn't something I'll go back for... same goes for the entree... More

Very nice in every way. Good service and atmosphere. The vibe was upscale and classic. Great menu and drinks too. I had pork schnitzel and it was perfect. Corn bread muffins were outstanding. You will be pleased with all aspects of this restaurant.

I found the restaurant noisy and the food somewhat disappointing. Among appetizers, the beef carpaccio is a winner but the fried oysters and crawfish beignets didn't impress. A trout special entree was fine but not especially memorable. On the hand, Frank's cake, a sponge with a terrific meringue topping, was the highlight of my meal. Wait staff at my table... More

Impeccable service and thoughtfully prepared food made our evening at Highlands a real treat. The waiters clearly know and respect the chef's intentions and do a good job explaining and conveying the nuances of any item on the menu we cared to know more about. They made thoughtful suggestions about how to enhance our experience and it didn't feel like... More

Visiting Birmingham, I dined here with colleagues for the first time. Very professional staff who know the menu and wines well. All our meals and starters were excellent - this would be a great place for a special occasion.

Thank Fuzby
