High Street on Market Ratings and Reviews
We arrived at 5:30 and were immediately seated. The first ones to arrive in fact and quickly the restaurant filled up. We had a glass of wine with our plate of bread and schmears. Delicious. Then we had the mushroom melange which was wonderful and topped off our dining with the Angry Crab pasta - spaghetti - spicy with peekytoe crab - wonderful. But the highlight of the meal was the dessert. chocolate ice cream with an almost creme fraiche and candied ginger pieces with chocolate chunks. and crunchy rye cumbles - oh I wish I could remember the name but it was wonderful. Service was great! When we left, the place was packed.
Quite simply, we just love this place. High Street on Market (and its sibling, High Street on Hudson) are two of my favorite restaurants anywhere. The cuisine is so creative without being weird. The intensity of the flavors - in literally every dish - was astonishing...and between the four of us we had almost every dish. We plan to return, over and over again!!!
I came here with family that was visiting from out of town. I had been for breakfast before and had a fantastic meal and really enjoyed the restaurant so I was looking forward to trying it for dinner. While the food was very tasty, we were unimpressed with the service. For example, my $13 dollar glass of wine was not even filled halfway and our server repeatedly insisted that we order more food, despite our telling her that we were happy with our order. I felt that as a whole the restaurant is pretty stingy with portion sizes. I don't mind paying top dollar for high quality food but the whole menu felt overpriced to me. I would definitely return for breakfast but I would not recommend this place for dinner when there are so many other incredible restaurants in Philly.
I had an excellent experience. High street had their own gluten free bread and pasta which was phenomenal. The waitstaff was knowledgeable, accommodating and funny. The Kennett Square Mushrooms dish is one of the best that I have had in Philadelphia. Superb all around.
After having a refreshing, well prepared, and relatively inexpensive brunch al fresco here in fall 2016 I was very excited to come back during restaurant week and give the dinner menu a try. Unfortunately everything we ordered was coated in salt. We ordered many diverse dishes - burrata, mushroom salad, cauliflower pasta, duck breast; all very salty. Even our desserts were salted (and very small). Salted chocolate short bread and salted caramel ice cream and salted caramel syrup. As we were leaving they even offered us complimentary salted chocolate chip cookies. I have never felt ripped off by a higher end restaurant before, this was the first. When I got the bill I couldn't believe it was so expensive for such a disappointing meal. We loved our luncheon here and were shocked at the difference in performance. The best part of the dinner was the complimentary rye bread served at the start.
High Street was wonderful! We had an amazing time. I love how unique the dishes and cocktails were-- duck fat cocktail? So interesting, never seen that before either. Everything was really tasty-- a few dishes were borderline too salty, but creativity, freshness can't be beat. It was fun to have a vegetable-centric menu and I felt that the food was this great blend of rustic, homemade feeling with refinement and elevated. Service was very attentive, no complaints. I can't wait to go back again for brunch/lunch/dinner/anytime I wish i lived closer that's all!
We enjoyed everything we ordered, but were not particularly blown away by anything. This is not a good place for someone trying to avoid gluten! Our server dropped the check when dessert was dropped, which made us feel rushed (and it was not close to closing time).
We did the chef tasting and the food was incredible! They told us it would be 3-4 courses and it ended up being about 9!!! We were so full and happy by time we left there, I thought someone would have to roll me out of the Resturant! Cheers to the chefs and servers for making our dining experience truly exceptional! We will be back!
Celebrating my son's graduation. We ordered the "Leave it to Us" tasting menu. Watching only 3 chefs in a tiny, open kitchen space create such a variety and quantity of such interesting food was amazing. I can see why it makes the top restaurants list in Philly. Sure there were a few dishes that didn't quite work, at least for our group's palette [the Burrata appetizer (sorry I think the SF Bay area has better), the Blue Fish Tartine (I really liked it but most did not) and the Milk and Chocolate dessert] but most of the dishes were savory, delicious bites of soulful cooking, all beautifully presented. The Cauliflower Caramelle and the Angry Crab Spaghetti were favorite dishes. The breads were absolutely delicious! We ran late on arriving at our reservation time but the hostess was so understanding and welcoming when we arrived. Beautiful space. I was surprised that the next for restaurant, Fork is connected to High Street. We love the soulful creativity of High Street and look forward to returning again.
We ADORED this restaurant! The food was "farm to table" fresh, the flavors complex and nuanced, the ingredients unusual, the service unpretentious, and the prices reasonable. In other words, High St. on Market had everything we like in a restaurant. I was a bit taken aback when I looked at the wine list (NY state and places in CA you've never heard of as being wine producers), but I ordered a sauvignon blanc from NY and it was delightful. It's a small tight-knit group that runs the place and they take great pride in what they serve. There's a menu option where you just let them decide what to bring you; we opted for that and were very happy we did. The place is tiny (11 tables or so), so I'd definitely make and advance reservation. Also, it was raining when we left and they actually sent someone outside to hail a cab for us. Bravo on all fronts!
This is my first time at High Street, so I went for the tasting menu. Started the meal in a light way to with the intense flavour of fermented soybean and the crispness of Kale. Followed this with aged beets. They were fairly good, but the taste of pickled radish was a bit overwhelming, personally.
Potted shrimp: Yum! Loved the flavor of lightly toasted potatoe bread melding into the freshness of shrimp finished with the creaminess of Foie Gras.
Loved the bread spread. The earthy flavours of the charred eggplant was particularly memorable. Not a fan of the sunflower seed risotto, too tangy.
Now for the main course, loved the pan seared duck with soured oats. I was able to taste each flavour individually. The angry crab spagetti was just amazing!! And finally for dessert had a combination of sweet and salty chocolate with cinnamon milk, pistachio, edible flowers and chocolate swirl. Only complaint is the corn syrup in the chocolate swirl overwhelmed the flavor of chocolate. Amazing service! Will go again!
Food was excellent. Big disappointment was dessert - super small portions that left you unsatisfied. Not how you want to end your meal. The Carrot Cake was delicious but it was a deconstructed broken apart super small piece of cake. For $9 you would expect a full piece of cake to end the night. Same for the cheese cake and milk and chocolate. At most you got 4 or 5 spoon fulls.
