We have lived in Denver since 1995. and years ago, the places to go out were, and still, the Gaylord District, Pearl St in WashPark or Downtown. We all have our favorite places, but, recently in the last three years, the resurgence of Highlands has made a solid case in one of the hottest neighborhoods. We now go to Highland Pacific frequently, and they are much more busy now than their first year. Everytime we go there we are greeted with warmth from the everyone, not just the staff, of course, there are times when we wait longer than planned...we expect to wait at the best places...a busy restaurant is a good thing! we think it is worth every minute of wait. Reading the ""terrible"" review below, i am somewhat hesitant and confused about this account of the events by ""russ22"". Sir, we WERE THERE and yes they were extremely busy that night...and yes WE ALL waited more than originally planned. I'm not overly concerned about the details at the table, sure...EVERYONE, you included, can make mistakes...it happens, but what we and about 20 other people witnessed that night is unacceptable! First, regardless of what happens in LIFE or (more-to-the-point) what happened in Highland Pacific, one should NEVER YELL at top level in a restaurant at a young woman who is humbly serving you. Second, after you were through with that very tense evening, one should NEVER hunt down the same young woman down and make her cry at your disposal. good one! Reading the other review, that was basically about the same incident involving ""russ22""...another good one ""russ22""!...it should rather read...""pretty scary customer""! good luck with all that russ22!\r
Hey ""russ22"", word on 32nd street is that you are banned from Highland Pacific.\r
again, all the best of luck ""russ22""
Pros: atmosphere and experience
Cons: very busy, yet worth the wait
