“Sandton shocker”
Non existent service and shocking attitude are the hallmark of Higher Ground . A beautiful relaxed setting with an amazing view of the Sandton skyline and a great menu was decimated by poor service . Although we had booked a table it took ages to get a menu and another eon before our drinks order was taken . After another thirsty 15 minutes , faceless and ignorant stares from the waiters and no drinks we aborted our experience and left empty stomached . More vacant states from the staff sent us in search of an alternate option . What promised to be a special evening together dissipated into disappointment. We wont be back

“Lovely lunch”
Amazing view, friendly attentive staff. Expansive menu with dishes for all palates but quite expensive for what is served. Tasty (but not the best) trinchado, good bisque, excellent pork belly, fish and chips overcooked. Pity the desserts are brought in and not homemade.

“Great views over Santon, but poor service”
Great views over Santon, but pricy menu without much flavor. The service is not good by the waiters, and not personal to patrons... you have to beg and wait.

“Sundowners into dinner”
Great location for sundowners, overlooking the St Stithians grounds with the Sandton skyline on the horizon. Upmarket menu and buzzing atmosphere to complement. If you can't decide what to order, have the Alfredo!

“Overpriced for pretty much pub food”
Great view as always, service actually pretty good but seriously you can't justify those prices for really average food

“Great views over Sandton, casual atmosphere”
A good spot to go to for sundowners and a bite to eat.Very relaxed casual atmosphere. Like a local bar and restaurant in the area on school grounds.Food is tasty and good. One expects it to be more reasonably priced given the decor and atmosphere.Service is usually slow. Management has a slight 'air' and unfriendliness.Be that as it may I will go back for casual get togethers and the neighbourhood convenience factor.

“Over priced and service underwhelming”
The food here is not cheap - a lot of the mains are over R180, yet the food is basically pub food and the service is slow. I won’t go back and wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. For the price, I expect much better!

“casual restaurant with great views of JHB skyline”
Casual restaurant situated in one of JHB's older school grounds. Emphasis on casual and a very relaxed feel - the views however are great - especially for visitors to Gauteng. Recommend booking as restaurant gets busy
