Great food and service, restaurant is tired needs a make over, it is also very crowded. Seats are not very comfortable. Owners need to stop by Perrys or Ruth Chris for a true dining experance.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday at Highlands in early February. The ambience was delightful and our waiter helped make the evening one to remember. Food was incredible and cocktail menu was a great mixture of classics and house created delights.
