I rarely get anything other than the short ribs. The are the best I've ever had. Their onion soup is great too. Service is always good. Wolfgang routinely stops by everyone's table to see how good it was.

A friend of mine who lives in town recommended Wolfgangs to me. That was a very good opportunity that was not missed. my New York strip steak was succulent and cooked to perfection. the waitstaff was very concerned that my dining experience was top notch, hence, very professional approach. It was a very nice touch that Wolfgang himself came out to the table to check on me. I will definitely return with my friends. A great dining experience! Pass the good news forward.

I can't deny I love this restaurant! It's a must-stop for a delicious meal, wonderful atmosphere and hospitality, and great libations anytime...and even more than once...when in Highlands. During my most recent trip, I loved sitting in the Bistro in a comfy chair while enjoying drinks and my meal...the always fabulous wiener schnitzel. It's one of those places you want the night and the meal to go on for days...along with a bottomless appetite and non-expanding waistline. ;) Needless to say, I highly recommend this wonderful culinary corner in this beautiful city for a single diner, romantic evening, or group you must delight and impress.

My husband and I decided to get away for the day. We chose Wolfgangs for dinner. The food, service, everything was top notch. We will definitely be back.

The staff could not be more accommodating, even to the point of making sure our sheltie pup is welcome and the heaters are warming the patio for us on those cool Highlands nights. The sommelier offers great wine advice. My husband loved the porcini crusted Seabass. Wolfgang's is definitely our very favorite Highlands Restaurant.
