Very good service, even on a crazy Friday night. The restaurant was SO loud, though, in part because of the music. Also wasn't quite as blown away by the food as I was hoping, given all the hype I've heard from friends. Overall worth going back to for some good food.

This is literally the place where everybody knows your name. I lived a block away for 2 years so we spent a whole lot of time hanging out here. Joe in particular is amazing, best bartender you could hope for. The buffalo brussel sprouts, mozzarella ricotta balls, fried calamari and the mussels are some of the best menu items for dinner. They also make their own mayo, juices, etc. Brunch is to die for, wait in line for at least an hour, even before they've opened, and feast on fried chicken sandwiches and bloody mary's til you want to die from happiness overload. The Dorchester is my old stand by (fresh squeezed pink lemonade, cucumber, vodka), but everything is wonderful.

Came here on a Tuesday night to get some food and drinks and was surprised they didn't take reservations. I had been here once before for brunch and the wait was long so I wasn't surprised that the place would be full. The host was friendly and gave us a wait time for 20-30 minutes for 3, but luckily it was much faster then that and we were seated in about 10-15 minutes. The menu has a few vegetarian options and we started with the mozzarella fritters which were really good. Super light and airy and didn't feel greesy or heavy at all. The dipping sauce was a bit sweet, but overall an excellent app. I got the grilled cheese for my meal and that was really good too. The perfect amount of bread and cheese and the portion sizes were really big in general. I really liked this place and would come back often.

OBSESSED with this place. I think brunch is my favorite, though I've loved everything I've ever had at any time of day. Delicious drinks (try the bloody mary and the Dorchester) I could literally eat 100 buffalo brussel sprouts and still want more. Had to wait a couple times but if there's a place that's worth it- it is Highland Kitchen.

The restaurant is a bit loud but food is delicious and our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. We definitely enjoyed ourselves here.
