Testimonials From Our Clients

Excellent venue and the service was top notch. The bartenders/waiters were going around non stop serving drinks and alcohol to the arrived guests. The mezza, entrees and mains and desserts were all fresh and tasted amazing. The serving-ware, glassware and cutlery were classy. Keep up the great service. Highly recommended!!

D Girgis

We have yet to have our wedding, but the process (driven by the fantastic Nineveh) has made it such an incredible experience for us, it would not be the same without her helping us along the way!

Raphnita Wedding

I had my wedding here yesterday and it was such an amazing experience. The team at HighLine were so flexible with me and patient. They made sure I had something to eat during the night and were just amazing to work with. I would highly recommend this venue for any event!

Natasha Dee

Attended a wedding last night at this venue and I just can’t fault anything. From entrees to dessert the food was so delicious. The service was just as good. There was always staff around ready to help and always refilling drinks before you even had to ask for it to be done. The whole venue is so beautiful that it doesn’t even need much decor. 10/10
