Great place for a date or to watch the game. Food and beverage were excellent. Menu is a vast improvement over previous restaurant’s menu. Ambience is excellent with updated decor. Expanded seating capacity from previous business. Will definitely be returning.

Food was mediocre. Service was fine. I’ll give them another try once Covid is under control and restaurant have less restrictions on how they operate.

The views of the city were obstructed by buses. The indoor section was too crowded, even though it’s supposed to be at 25%, but it was too cold to sit outside. There were some young party girls vaping inside the restaurant. There was a DJ and a lot of TVs. The food was ok. The salmon was the best part and was cooked nicely. The fries were not good. Something made my boyfriend and his mom sick that night and through the next day, they suspect it was the hamburger. Overall a quite disappointing birthday celebration. 😔

The location is good, but the view of the skyline was obstructed by buses. I think this will improve, once the ferries are operating at full capacity and buses are out of the way.

The menu options are limited and a little too casual for dinner, consisting of mostly salads and sandwiches. Would like to see a more expansive menu, specifically for entrees.

The beer selection was nice! Lots of crafty beers on tap. Seems like a good place for after-work drinks, on the way home from the city.

The staff was super friendly! Although, they seemed to not thoroughly know their menu and restaurant policies. Not holding it against them, as it's only their second week in operation.

Would likely visit again after the economy is back up to near pre-COVID levels.

Very good experience overall other than the noise level could go down a notch. Our waitress was friendly and the manager even stopped by to make sure we were happy with our dining experience. Definitely worth a try.

Overall great experience! This was my second time at Highwood. Covid Safe, Friendly Staff, Consistent Great Food.

Positive feedback=Service has been consistently friendly and efficient. Menu selections are great for this area. Love the Chicken Sandwich!

Constructive feedback=Guacamole was off! Chips were stale and plating of this dish was awkward for table side sharing. Mac & Cheese was also off on the prep side with large chunks of Poblano Peppers (these should be diced or julienned). Never saw a manager table side during either visit.

Nice layout, plenty of TV’s, easy parking. Food was alright. Would prefer regular tortilla chips with the guacamole. The margarita pizza was possibly the worst pie I’ve had in a while but the Chicken Milanese was excellent.

Great location, food was on point and drinks are good. Great vibe for some friends wanting to grab some food or drinks, would make a potential date night very impressive for your lady friend.

I went to The Highwood during its opening weekend and I thought it was a very solid experience. The drinks were great and the food was delicious. I would definitely visit again.
