On our frequent trips to Highland, we had always heard about Would Restaurant as a place for fine eating. So in celebration of a special birthday, we made a reservation far in advance for what we thought we be a gracious evening of fine food and drink. We were very disappointed. The restaurant features a $30 prix fixe on Fridays... More

I was looking forward to dining here after years of hearing good reviews. The atmosphere was pleasant with a lovely view out the back window. Our waiter was ok but seemed off his mark all night. The tables had linen cloths but had white paper on top which kept catching on my sleeve with every bite. The menu offered a... More

We the drop half an hour North and arrived at this quaint former summer resort, now converted into apartments and a fabulous restaurant downstairs. We chose to sit on the porch enjoying the view of the lawn looking down... More

Where to I begin. This is our 3rd trip to this restaurant as we have visited for 3 mothers day brunchs. Up until yesterday, we were happy with our visits but yesterday, mothers Day visit was our last. The problems were just one after another. The most critical was service or should I say lack of service. The wait staff... More

Very sorry for your experience. We work very hard to make our customers feel at home. We feel very bad and we wished that you could have said something before you left so we could have done something for you instead of writing a review on social media. Sometimes as hard as we try we fail with some customers I... More

We attended a party at The Would. It was a buffet which included flank steak, a chicken dish and a pasta/broccoli dish. The food was absolutely excellent and the staff was wonderful. Drinks were kept full and dishes collected quickly. The flank steak was fabulous - tasty and juicy. The staff was very accommodating of any special requests and very... More

Too late for dinner but impressed with staff and atmosphere. Will be going back for a meal soon. Quiet and off the main road it's a gem that we may have missed if not for the hotel telling us about then
