    Will never patronize Hilife again

    I have been a weekly customer of the West Side location for 5+years. The severs there know my name and order without me saying anything. That said - the East Side location is NOTHING like the west side. First we waited to order for over an hour. Then we waited another 40 minutes for our appetizer of onion rings to arrive. For $7 a "family order" of onion rings gets you 11 skinny pieces. Ridiculous! Since that was nothing to really share among 4 adults we got the potato skins - 4 tiny pieces that were about 1/4 of a potato skin. Again, not a sharing type proportion. So then our sushi arrived and it was OK. Then it took another 25 minutes to pay. HiLife just lost a long time customer. I would not reccommend this restaurant.

    another -so what -so-so restaurant addition

    not warm not inviting too ecclectic for chefs to master a style or theme-so the dishes are ordinary and the prices not worth it-......such a high rent district--so many mediocre restauants. wish more ethnic restaurants would come in like moroccan -lebanese even an old fashioned (used to be good) chinese and not another sushi!-- no wonder everything new is happening food wise in other areas of the city,

    Not the same old place

    I was extremely disappointed by the new Hi Life - it certainly isn't the same place that I loved on 1st Avenue. I'm not a picky eater and thought the food was just awful (except the french fries - those were good). The crab cakes were inedible and the pad thai arrived cold. I would not recommend this place at all.

    Not recommended

    My wife and I ordered from here tonight, and it was not good. The food all tasted like it was frozen, then reheated. The crabcakes were heavily breaded, and came with two unidentifiable but unappetizing sauces. The calamari tasted frozen. The chicken wings were quite possibly the poorest I have ever eaten, and were very undercooked. The sushi was to be feared. We will not be eating here again.

    Great place to try

    After hearing that HI Life just opened a week ago, I figured that I would give the place a whirl. Last night my boyfriend and I arrived at HI Life, where the service was a 10. We had to wait 15-20 minutes but it was worth it. This lounge area was well attended because the staff would clean the tables promptly from previous customers drinks, thus not feeling like sitting at a used table. The hostess was very sweet asking us at the end if we enjoyed our meal. The food was good. I had the artichoke to start, which was a little dry and rough. Then the grilled chicken sandwich which was excellent. The fries were cooked to perfection. They have an extensive wine list and full bar. The menu has so much to choose from that anyone can find something to eat. It is divided into starters, appetizers for sharing with groups, big plates and small plates. They even had a full sushi menu. The dessert menu had mostly fruit desserts. We had the apple brown betty, which was good, nothing to write home about. I highly reccommend this place if your in the neighborhood and would like a solid place to eat.
