High Street on Market Ratings and Reviews
I have been to High Street on Market a number of times and always love the food, wine, and service. I chose it as a place to take a few of my foodie friends who were in town for a visit. Everyone loved the food and thought it was great value for the high quality. I highly recommend coming here.
This was our first visit and I will definitely return. We had the tasting menu and everything was delicious and generous portions for the two of us. Highlights were the Kennett Square mushrooms, the sumac lamb pasta, the squid ink with octopus pasta, and crispy broccoli.
Visited High Street on Market with two friends who were in from out of town. The service was great! Our waitress was very helpful and fun. We did the ‘Leave it to Us’ menu option so the kitchen sent an array of dishes. We did not leave hungry! Everything was wonderful but some stand outs were the crispy broccoli, Primal Supply bratwurst, Kennett Square mushroom, squid ink gnocchetti and smoked celery ravioli.
The tasting menu is a good value. We enjoyed the smoked celery ravioli, the black pasta with octopus, and the lightly breaded broccoli. The bread is outstanding.
Diners are asked if there is anything they can't eat but not told what they will receive. While the surprise is fun, not knowing can result in your receiving things you just don't like. In our case, it was seared tuna. The staff was annoyed when we indicated neither of us liked tuna. They did provide an alternative. Also, one of us told the server she could not eat anything spicy. The first dish was a carrot with jerk spice in yogurt.
High Street is an outstanding restaurant. We went there based on recommendation of a friend who is a chef. Quickly, it became apparent why he chose this establishment. The room
The tapas inspired menu offerings were fascinating and delicious. By coincidence my companion and I selected 4 vegetarian dishes ranging from a wonderful rye pasta carbonara to one of the most spectacular mushroom assortments which was combined with eggplant and served salad style. One last thought: do not avoid sampling the house backed breads. It will be worth the additional carbs!.
(Went for dinner on a Friday night) The food was very good - some of the dishes were conventional but very well done. Other dishes were more creative and also very well done. But the service was really weak - the restaurant was only half full but the waitstaff seemed barely able to service the room (mixed up multiple orders that I could see and had tables waiting for dishes too long - mine included). The prices at dinner are quite high and given the cost I expect much better service.
I've had lunch multiple times and always had a great experience but given that the prices for dishes at lunch are much less than at dinner my expectations are also lower.
So I would highly recommend for lunch but not for dinner.
We went here for my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. We started with some bread and the bluefish spread and the crunchy broccoli. The bread was amazing, the spread was perfectly balanced and the broccoli was such a treat! I had the duck egg carbonara and my husband enjoyed the squid ink pasta. Both dishes were so delicious. We started the meal with a local sparkling rosé from a Lehigh valley vineyard! Our waitress said that they try and feature local wines and you'll see a few throughout the list. My husband tried the unicorn cocktail much to my enjoyment and I had a glass of granache with my carbonara. We enjoyed the meal and will definitely recommend High Street to our friends and family. I may have to start buying the bread for at home. It was so good!
I introduced two old friends to High Street, and they both loved it. The hits of the evening were the crispy broccoli with chow-chow, the Kennett Square mushrooms, and the bratwurst, but the spaghetti and the blistered beans were great too. The service was, as usual, friendly, attentive, and professional, and our courses were served with just the right pacing. This is SUCH a great place.
We enjoyed dinner at HighStreet after the Temple football game on Saturday. The dining room was full, but we could still talk comfortably. We celebrated my birthday and I was happy to have many delicious menu options for my medically required gluten and dairy free diet, as well as gluten and nut free options for my sons. What a wonderful evening, finished off by sorbet with Gluten Free Graham cracker crumbs. I look forward to returning!
Cool atmosphere, great food, but rude waitress! We went for a light dinner, and ordered a handful of dishes, everything was amazing! The broccoli was an overall standout, and a dish who's proceeds benefit the Hurricane Harvey victims was heartwarming.
The only complaint was our waitress, who was curt from the start. We originally chalked it up to a bad night, and of course left a nice tip. On our way out, after passing on dessert and the tray of cookies at the door, she quipped "you can have a cookie it won't kill you" to a coworker. We were all clearly within earshot and found it incredibly offensive, especially because we were on our way to grab ice cream! At such a highly reviewed restaurant, I would expect a pleasant experience until the customer is solidly out the door!
Excellent -an inspired take on comfort food - the chef has produced a creative take on some classic comfort foods that is both exciting and comforting. We ate early so the restaurant was not full and the sound level was comfortable. don't know what it is later. Looks forward to returning soon.
We came in stated that we had a resv and the hostess said " Let me see what I got?" Look at the e-pad but didn't give us the OpenTable credit. The food was mostly small plates that tasted ok but not that memorable or interesting. We tried a few gin cocktails at the suggestion of our waitress and they were fine but nothing special. Another waitress brought over an app we told her we didn't order but she said "It's for you" -a smoked whitefish with some crusty bread. We could see a commotion near the open kitchen about the mistake and hear apologies to the couple at the table behind us. After the small plate apps we share one of the "larger dishes" a well prepared glazed chicken. Overall the place was meh and a little disappointing.
High Street provided a a terrific dining experience. We shared the smoked bluefish (I don't like bluefish, but this was a not-to-be-missed starter served with their house made bread), a ceviche with a strong citrus flavor that we loved and then I had the angry crab spaghetti (wow, a spectacular pasta dish) and my wife had one of the salad plates (she loved it). I would have a hard time not ordering the exact same items when I return.
While traveling in Philadelphia for two weeks, I came to High Street three times! I came for lunch first and was convinced I had to try breakfast and dinner. The atmosphere is cozy and casual. During dinner it gets moderately loud. They have an open kitchen so it's fun to watch the staff at work. The menu is made for sharing and I highly recommend it, so you can try the variety they have to offer. The dishes are fresh, creatively put together and deliciously savory with each bite. Why can't every meal be like this! This place is reason enough to come back to Philadelphia.
What a treat this was. I was joined by several friends/colleagues for a conference in Philadelphia. We wanted to try some recommended local restaurants, and High Street on Market came bearing great reviews. The cuisine was delicious and different, and service was top notch. We entrusted menu choices to our server and she absolutely didn't disappoint. Don't fret the small plates concept; this is a great experience.
Perfect place to go after catching an indie flix at any of the nearby Ritz Theaters. A varied menu of sharable plates of breads, spreads, pastas, salads, fish and meat. Every dish offering a fresh surprise; that's fresh as in right from the farm. Extremely tasty. Good choices of American wines. Nifty desserts. Not just the lesser sister to Fork. Forgot about "Maudie"; could not stop taking about the food and what a find High Street was.
Came here for a dinner with my boss (who im good friends with) as I'm leaving, and I don't think we could've picked a better place. I'm pescatarian and have a lactose allergy, which didn't even pose a problem. We got 4 plates for sharing, starting off with the carrot hummus. I literally have never had such an intense reaction to taste when i had the vollkenbrot (german multigrain bread soaked in butter and toasted) with that hummus. The flavors in my mouth made me want to savor it forever. It was SOO delicious. We also got the summer lettuces which were really great. I then got the squid ink agnolotti with clams and chorizo spices and was super excited to try squid ink pasta for the first time - amazing. it rivaled the carrot hummus in the best way. I also have to add that our server, Aaron K, was spectacular. He was so accommodating and made specialty drinks for us (off the menu) and had some interesting convos with him too. Great guy. Then we got the Kenneth Square Mushrooms with egg and it was BOMB. like everything was perfect and working, and i was genuinely sad that I felt full. finished off a meal that fantastic with some english breakfast tea and a specialty baileys drink, plus a taylor fladgate 10yr port. honestly one of the best dining experiences of my life, just beautiful.
The food was excellent.
We ordered chef's tasting and the food came too fast- felt like there was a rush. We also did not like the fact that the server who takes the order is not the one who brings the food - makes for a very disjointed experience for the meal.
Went as a pre-concert early dinner and were out in plenty of time before the show. Food is awesome - lots of choices from apps to mains. We over ordered - 6 dishes for the two of us was definitely on the high end as portions are very generous. Would go again for sure.
