Highlights of Hi Life – Very pleased with my experience at Hi Life Bar and Grill. The servers are all very friendly, as well the manager! (which is not always the case in some places!!) Our drinks and food were delicious, and the manager was very prompt and enthusiastic. There is a great vibe at that place. Definately a fun experience and an awesome place to eat and/or just hang out. Also, the amount of seating they have is a plus, and they accomodate well...100% would go back .."Hi"-ly reccommened in my opinion!
ugh, gross – i used to go to hi life ages ago and remembered it being pretty good so when my bf and i found ourselves on the UWS we decided to check it out. things started out okay, we were served our drinks fairly quickly and they were fine. but when our potato skins appetizer showed up with burnt skins and barely melted cheese, we became wary about what was to come. and what came can only be described as extremely sub-par, bordering on inedible food, and we are NOT upscale diners by any means. i had the meatloaf which was drowning in tomato sauce (?) served with oily vegetables and lumpy mashed potatoes. my bf had the penne with chicken and cream sauce and i think the fact that he's been on the toilet for the last 20 min is enough of an explanation as to why he didn't enjoy it. the service was fine and the prices would be decent if the food was as well but i would never recommend this place to anyone for anything other than alcohol which is generally hard to screw up.
the best burgers in the city – We recently had dinner here and had a great experience. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and very attentive. We will definitley go back.
buttons above are broken ... highly recommended – Very good bar. Excellent kitchen. Outstanding sushi. Good service. Conversation with owner is definitely not recommended.
Great Martinis – I like a great martini and HiLife had them. The NY strip was also wonderful. I'll go back for sure.
Great – I highly recommend this. The service was awesome and the food was really good. The whole staff was very friendly and we were in and out very quickly. Awesome!
Highly Recommended – I love this place. It has a fun atmosphere and great food. The resturant offers early dinner deals in addition to daily specials. They have half price sushi on Monday & Tuesday and 5 dollars off wine Wednesday & Sunday.
Amazing! – I'm a eleven year old child and I love The Hi-Life Bar and Grill!
Their specials, food variety, waiters and waitresses, good prices, outside seating and huge plasma screen Tv's make The Hi-Life Bar and Grill the place it is. Their food consists of good American style food, mexican food, fish, meat and sushi. They have a half price sushi night on Monday. Hi- Life Bar and Grill's hamburgers and crisp thin french french fries are the best in town. If you're looking for a good simple meal try the rosemary chicken. Hi- Life Bar and Grill's enchiladas hit the spot!
The waiters and waitresses are extremely helpful. Having a drink at The Hi-Life bar and Grill will make you completely relaxed. This restaurant a is the perfect oriented family place for you and your children. Expect a great meal and time at The Hi-Life Bar and Grill!
I am hooked on Hi Life – I started coming to Hi Life with friends to take advantage of their daily special deals. I still come for the deals, but now I?m hooked on Hi Life?s excellent comfort food. They have great mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, hand cut fries and delicious pastas.
A great place to go – I love this place. You can go a lot and get something different each time. Get the mussels...they are a yummy good deal.
