We had 13 for dinner last night as our Friday night group attended. We had outstanding service. The menu was explained and drink orders taken. Once we received our drinks we ordered. With 13 what could have been a timely task was well handled. It took a bit to receive our food but of course we did have a large... More

The "Lunch" review was just posted. First, Wolfgang's is closed right now. Second, they don't serve lunch. So, this review is completely and utterly without merit.

Wolfgang and I were also surprised at this review. The only thing we thought is that they went to the bistro at 4pm and thought of it as a late lunch. As for the timing of the review we have had some written as late as one month after they have dined with us. We are curious why you would... More

We lived in Highlands know chef Wolf & Mandy his wife personally the nicest couple, he's a top chef from Germany..... The food the place is wonderful fresh & tasty all the time. The place is in a rustic building. Highlands is a very small town in the mountains of N.C. you'll enjoy the town & Wolfgang's Restaurant.

I had the pleasure of treating my family to a holiday dinner at Wolfgang's. We were seated in the backroom (my favorite location!) Very secluded, and the fireplace is the perfect touch. Our server was Yanzi and she did a wonderful job explaining the menu and the specials. I highly recommend anything that is on the Cajun part of the... More

Recently, I had the pleasure of dining at Wolfgang's with a group of my good girl friends. Needless to say we all left with a big smile on our face. The staff were extremely pleasant and personable, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the short rib (which is what I ordered), but everything was delicious. I have every... More

New Years eve dinner- prize fix with many good selections. The bone in pork chop was very good- tender, moist. We also had duck breast- again very good. The appetizer of a lobster purse was great. Good wine selection and the server was good- explained all the selections and was most efficient. The one down side we saw was the... More

We saved the best for last. My husband and I visited Highlands the week after Christmas. After reading the reviews for Wolfgang 's we decided to make reservations. My husband and I are food snobs, so we love an excellent meal. The restaurant is very quaint. Our waiter was excellent. We had the lobster bisque soup. It was delicious! Not... More

My husband and I Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Wolgangs, they have a great wine list and Jackie gave us excellent service! We both had the Bavarian sampler and we were so glad that we got the same thing, or we would have been fighting over the entree!

We could not get reservations (insufficient waitstaff) so we dropped in and ate at the Bistro- the wine bar, bar and meal part of Wolfgangs. 2 local beers, an appetizer, 2 soups and entrees, $70.00. Just a tad steep methinks. Food was tasty, no doubt, but still I believe overpiced.

I am sorry you could not get a reservation. There are only so many guests that we can take. On your dinner pricing I am a little confused about the steep pricing. 2 beers @ 4.00 $8.00 Appetizer $12.00 $12.00 2 soups @ 7.00 $14.00 2 entrees @ 18.00 $36.00 $70.00 - I do not know if that included the...
