The Heights is a great place for lunch and dinner. It is upscale and therefore quiet and classy for a dinner out or a dinner meeting.

Overall our meal was excellent, but there were only two shrimp on the plate. The strip steak had grizzled running down the middle . For the price we expected a bit more.

I agree that they are very accommodating. Over the years, I have asked for specific alterations to certain menu items and they were happy to make the changes for me. I'd call ahead to be sure. If you know what kinds of foods... More

The Heights Restaurant and H Bar was established in 1995 by Culinary Institute of America graduate James Larounis and his wife Heidi. We are located in the Village of Cayuga Heights, one mile from the center of Cornell University. The restaurant has a casual, contemporary atmosphere and features Mediterranean-inspired American cuisine. We place the utmost value on our seasonal menus and on sourcing locally. We also take great pride in our wine list which includes over 400 bottle selections from the United States and international regions, and over 20 wines by the glass. The Heights Restaurant and H Bar has been a Wine Spectator award winner since 1999.
