High Street on Market Ratings and Reviews
I have been at High Market a few times. However, I was a little disappointed by the sort of slow service on Saturday night. They were busy but not that busy. It was raining and it seemed slow. I like to come here because they use local, fresh ingredients. Not only the service but also I just didn't like few of the dishes. I tried their oysters - too salty. Mind you, I like salt. My other dish was the Burnt grains campanelle and again, way too salty. If it wasn't for the salt, it would've easily been my favorite dish. I couldn't finish it and refused to take it with me because I wasn't going to choke myself on salt. That same night, I woke up in the middle of the night and drank 24oz of water at once for feeling so dehydrated. Dessert was fabulous.
My first time here and loved it. Made a reservation, we were a party of 7, and we ended up coming during restaurant week, and got great value for the $35 3-course meal. Loved our server as well, super happy with the delicious food. Next I want to come for breakfast!
It was spectacular, absolutely sublime. I had the baked oysters and the shredded boar pasta, my boyfriend had the mushroom salad and the steak. Both were divine, one of the best tasting and good looking meals I’ve had in a while. The servers were really friendly and attentive as well as lively. Loved it
I love this place and alot of thought goes into the dishes with creativity.
Indulged in the tasting menu and we wont do it again-
Too fast to really savor the different dishes, although the chef came up with a lovely subxtitute for one of us who had an issue with one dish- handled quickly and graciously, thank you.
There were 6 of us ranging in ages from 14-85. We had a very positive experience. We shared 4 appetizers, everyone was completely satisfied! The entrées were beautiful to look at and even better to eat. I do not recall being so satisfied after a meal. My only disappointment was that no one wanted dessert! Aha, a reason to return! And, a shout out to our waitperson - who exhibited so much patience when I explained our dietary restrictions!
Cheers for the mushroom/egg dish. The lamb sausage was aromatic and tasty! Great job on the bread served with the carrot hummus. Loved everything, even the crumbs!
The menu sounded amazing but when the food came, it was all fine but nothing blew us away. Had the price point been lower, we would have been more satisfied.
We had a small piece of bone in a dish which we did not complain about but they kept making a big deal of and yet did not compensate us in any way.
Service was lovely.
Decided upon High Street on Market for our weekly date night. Restaurant was very warm and inviting with it’s fresh garland and twinkle light Christmas decor. Service was excellent! I don’t think it matters what you order as all of our dishes were delicious! Smoked Bluefish was excellent and the squid ink pasta was also delightful! Dessert was a sinfully light but decadent chocolate slice. If celebrating, I highly recommend their ‘drink pairing’ if you are going to have a couple of drinks. After 30 years of marriage I ‘celebrate’ often! It was a lovely evening and we will be back!
High Street on Market is always a pleasure and truly delicious. I have not had a thing there that I did not like and the service is always really nice, laid back but attentive. The ambiance is also really nice although some of the seating can be cramped at times. It is pretty expensive for just an every day night out (especially if you are drinking) so I like to keep it for friends/relatives in town or special celebratory dinners.
But, honestly, I think it's the best restaurant in Old City!
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!
