“Third Visit and More to Come”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We have come here three times and definitely will keep coming back.
The menu changes with the seasons so everything is fresh.
Staff friendly and very knowledgeable.

“Always good, always pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

If you are willing to foot the bill, Higgins will serve up some wonderful food. I think there are other 'better value' restaurants in this 'foodie' city of ours, but you can count on Higgins to be consistent. Service is very professional. I hear the bar is a great place to eat, though I haven't tried it as yet.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012 via mobile

Outstanding restaurant well worth the price. On the edge of the University district and easy walking distance from the major downtown hotels. Extremely knowledgeable wait staff. Had the fresh salmon special. Wow!

“Busy Downtown Restaurant/Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Higgins is a great place. Has a fair number of bottled and [local] draft beers at the bar and is popular, bustling, lively place full of atmosphere. You can sit down, if you've booked or are early and enjoy a meal of ay size from snack to several courses. There's snacks (or real food), beer and wine at the bar and it's ideally placed for a drink after the office, a pre-theatre/concert meet and greet or for after the show! Period decor, soft lights not too noisy but enough to be private. Mid priced food, efficient service with tasty tempting dishes and good for public transport as well as parking garages near by.

“I don't get it... good food, not awesome but get high reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Yes, they are farm-to-table restaurant and support local farmers which i love, but the food is not amazing. I don't get why others give it such high reviews for a place with such high prices. Maybe it's just the regulars... Do you not try some of the other amazing places in this town?
