Bluegrass

Reviewed By Zach S - Chicago, Illinois

This place is great. Found it using TripAdvisor even though I've lived in HP all my life. I shared the Rosemary Chicken Sandwich with herb aioli and the Braised Short Rib with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and they were both great. The bread they brought was amazing and it came with Honey-Cinnamon butter. We got two desserts, the Bananas Foster and Chocolate Bread Pudding. The Bread Pudding was amazing and the Bananas foster was good. We will defiantly be back soon.

A fusion of South American flavors...

Reviewed By Squirrelhound - New York City, New York

This restaurant has a Spanish flair--many dishes are like tapas and most are great for sharing. Four of us gorged ourselves on some of the "small plates" like mushrooms, shrimp, and were stuffed by the time the entrees arrived. Beautiful presentation on the food! Great place to share specialty cocktails and food.

Francesco's Hole In The Wall

Reviewed By Boystowtraveler - Chciago

A friend invited me to this place for lunch and while it is rather small, it certainly is not a hole in the wall. It is located on a main road but it is set back, so look for it. The decor is really classy and the atmosphere is warm. It was relatively busy for lunch. The menu is on the wall and there are plenty of options from which to choose. My friend and I went with different pasta dishes and we were both pleasantly surprised. Delicious! Prices are very reasonable. Desserts are also available and we ordered a cake slice. It was huge, so plan to share it unless you are very hungry! We look forward to going here again very soon!

Their favorite is the strawberry waffle with whipped cream. They have a nice kid’s menu with pancake and egg dishes. I had a veggie omelet with hash browns- both were okay. Large portion of hash browns. Service was good and we had no wait on a rainy Saturday morning.

A wonderful restaurant. Absolutely great food and service. There is an amazing range of choices on an ever changing menu. A required reservation only between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM is a bit odd but you'll never get in otherwise.

Alex's Washington Gardens

Made from scratch, family recipe Italian cuisine in Highwood since 1932, and at it's current location since 1982. Serving a selection of Fresh Seafood delivered daily including our very popular Prince Edward Island Steamed Mussels. Also, we offer some of the best thin crisp crust pizza, which was the first pizza served on the North Shore at Scornavacco's since 1944. All the classics are here, homemade pastas, hand carved and pounded out chicken and veal parmigiana, limone, piccata, and of course lasagnas, meatballs, and of course homemade desserts.

Reviewed By highwoodkevin - Highwood

Family style old school Italian restaurant serving everyone's favorites. Spaghetti with meatballs, lasagna, chicken parmigiana, etc. All done classic style with generous portions that you can take home. Endless bread and bread sticks. Focaccia (pizza bread). Our favorites are the chicken vesuvio and the flat bread pizza. The former done in light olive oil. The latter on a thin crunchy crust. Delicious. This isn't a world class restaurant, but the food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. Mangia!

We split the duck and the steak. Both were very good as were the accompanying sides. Was quite disappointed in my black bean Turkey soup though. Service was excellent.

Once Upon a Bagel

Reviewed By droffilc - Chicago, Illinois

what do you think about a restaurant who chooses to add pink food color to their expensive lox cream cheese?

i call it fraud, deceptive practices, larceny, or you make the call. By the way, no ingredient labels on their food like so many other reputable food establishments do and some required to do to prevent dangerous allergic reactions that can lead to death.

most of food is good to very good. service is prompt.

just be honest.

most of their food is good and wholesome.

Miramar Bistro

Reviewed By ObviousMan - Chicago, Illinois

We (a group of friends) recently visited Miramar Bistro due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews here, and unfortunately (maybe it was the late hour or an off night) were mostly left unimpressed.
We could get reservation only for 8pm (not surprising for a popular place on the weekend), but the place was packed, and super loud. To the point we had hard time figuring what to order, since nobody could hear anyone. It gotten slightly better after 9pm when it was becoming less crowded. Unfortunately the service did not get any more attentive when it got less busy, in fact there was a long period when nobody from the wait staff showed up at all.
First the people did not want to get oysters, or seafood platter, etc, so we have not tried that. Also nobody got the steak either, as people wanted more of the French dishes.
We had 4 appetizers. Calamari were OK, not remarkable in any way. Escargot were very good, not overdone, good flavor. Both roasted beets and duck salads were kind of blah, wanting a flavor, a direction. Nothing really to make them bad, just blah.
The waiter has steered most people to either roasted duck or sauteed skate (2 of each was ordered), scallops and bouillabaisse were also ordered. Duck was OK, a hair dry, with overly sweet sauce. Not really flavorful, just sweet. Rice accompanying it had overcooked texture, not sure if intentionally, but just did not feel right. Skate was not bad, just quite bland, quite unusually from either French or Cuban cooking. Both portions were decent size. Scallops were probably the best dish on our table. Cooked right, with great mushrooms, right sauce, etc. Portion had 4 scallops of about 12/pound size. Bouillabaisse was a decent portion, almost as good as scallops, although also felt a bit under-flavored. We did not try the desert.
Overall I on the strength of escargot and scallops I give it a 4 rating, which in this case not quite very good, but definitely above average. Although I personally would willing to give it another try, most of the rest of the table decided they would not.
