Wolfgang's Restaurant and Wine Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Lots of issues. First, our wedge salad was so overdressed (there was at least 1/4 cup of dressing left on the plate) we made a joke to our server that we'd take the remainder of the dressing "to go." He laughed. Then, the boneless duck had three bones in it. The server did comp. us a free dessert, but both of these issues seemed a bit much for a restaurant with the Wolfgang Puck name attached. We came during our weekend getaway. Based on this experience, I don't think I'd visit another Wolfgang restaurant.
Very nice to walk in and they know who you are and it's the first time we have been there. We made reservations a couple of days before. We walk in 2 min before our reserved time and the hostess say welcome Mr. (Insert last name). Straight to the table and the wine was flowing! Super nice start to a great evening! I would have been blown away and would have given all five stars if the Decor was a bit more modern! Otherwise nice!
Everything that comes out of the kitchen is just pretty wonderful. Wine list is insane and personally advised by Annelize, their sommelier - you're guaranteed a great selection whatever taste and budget. Patio and covered deck are great - 'bistro' has small plates and opens at 4 for post-shopping cocktail and people watching on Main Street. Wiener Schnitzel is AMAZING!!
Wolfgang's is simply fantastic! I've eaten here a couple times now and everything about this restaurant is just amazing!!! The service cannot be beaten anywhere! I left my readers and couldn't see the menu. They brought me an assortment of readers I could use!! The trout with crab on top was just fantastic! The shrimp/crab bisque was fabulous!
You will need a reservation here or you can sometimes find a seat in the bar area. This restaurant is not to be missed if you visit Highlands!
The service was excellent. Wolfgang even came out to say hello, and make sure everything was good. Great wine selections, and the Châteaubriand for two was amazing. For dessert, the crème brûlée was a great choice, and the chocolate mousse was light and delicious. From start to finish, a great meal.
This is one of our most favorite restaurants! I had received an offer for a free appetizer for my birthday but I completely forgot about it! So there it sat in my pocketbook !!
but that's OK I just love the food there and I tried something different this time and it was the duck and it was outstanding
My husband and I were in Highlands for the weekend celebrating our anniversary and we chose Wolfgang's for one of our dinners. It did not disappoint!! We were seated in the lower dining area, right next to a beautiful fireplace, and were so thankful that we could easily hear each other, as the noise level was very low. We began the evening with the Pecan-encrusted Shrimp and they were delicious! For our entrees, I had the Short Rib and my husband had the Cajun Shrimp and Asiago Grits and both were prepared perfectly! The servings were very generous...in fact, neither of us were able to finish our entire dish. We finished out the evening with a Makers Mark and Vanilla Creme Brûlée which was the perfect ending to a wonderful dining experience. Thanks, Ivan, for the great service!
Another wonderful dinner at Wolfgang's, and this was opening night after the winter break. I ventured out this visit and had the venison versus my normal short rib order. Wasn't disappointed in the least and will have a difficult decision to make next visit. My wife had the veal medallions and was equally pleased. We've never had anything less than a wonderful dinner at Wolfgang's. The service, as always, was excellent, the presentation was impressive, and the overall dining experience memorable. Can't wait to go back.
Wonderfully prepared food, beautifully presented. I had the lobster beggar's purse, the signature shrimp & lobster bisque, duck two ways, one plate, and cherries jubilee. It was all simply to die for. The wine list is lovely and includes good selections of half bottles and wines by the glass. Wolfgang doesn't just create a meal--he crafts a beautiful experience.
It is always a pleasure to dine at Wolfgang's! Chef Wolfgang and his crew always do a great job! The variety of food offered allows everyone to find something they will enjoy. Their wine list is one of the best in town! When in Highlands, make sure to dine at Wolfgang's!
We enjoined the Red Snapper special and Cajun shrimp with andouille scented collards and grits! Yum... We started with Fried brie and finished with Chocolate peppermint creme brulee.
We also had their House chard and Merlot.
Great place to finish out the year here in highlands.
From stuffed portabella mushrooms to the melt in your mouth filet mignon and fresh mountain trout Oscar (topped with seafood in a delectable sauce) accompanied with the prefect wine selected by their sommelier. Not to mention the martini so cold it had ice crystals enjoyed before a cozy fire!!
We enjoyed Wolfgang's for our special Thanksgiving meal. My wife selected traditional turkey with all the "fixins" and I the non-traditional shrimp and grits. Both meals were superb, topped off with bananas Foster and pumpkin pie. Excellent service by Jeff made the experience truly exceptional.
Like the food and service. However, this is the second time we have been seated in your lower level room which reeks of mold and mildew, not a nice place to eat. Can't you install a moisture/mildew enclosure underneath? Most people have mold allergies. Thank you.
The food was solid...I'm sure we have never run into Austrian-Cajun fusion before...several dishes seemed to meld what must be Chef's passions and several were traditional versions of each cuisine on its own.
The restaurant is a little worn around the edges, especially noteable in the men's room and we were a bit cold on a chilly November night in the back dining room, but would return for the hearty food.
Wolfgang's is always top-notch. My husband and I go here very often and it never disappoints. Service is great, wine selection is one of the best in Highlands, and food is always consistent. We started with the Fried Brie with a cranberry walnut compote. It was delicious. For our second course I had the Wedge Salad, it is top with the best Bleu Cheese Dressing I have ever had. My husband had the Gorgonzola Walnut Salad it was very refreshing with the citrus pieces. For Entrees I had the Venison, it was so tender and cooked to perfection. My husband had the BBQ Shrimp and Grits it was also outstanding. The grits were perfectly creamy and the collards were excellent. For dessert we shared to Apple Strudel, the chef's family recipe, it was the perfect way to end the meal. Wolfgang's is a must go to place when in Highlands.
