Hi-Life Restaurant Restaurant Review: Hi-Life may be in a strip shopping center but the intimate space features a full bar and a small patio facing the parking lot. This menu has evolved radically over the years, discarding some features---a few of which we miss such as the lobster menu---and acquiring others. We suggest you stick with the simple grilled meats, as some of the Main Plates are just too busy. For instance, the Gorgonzola tenderloin, left to its own devices, would be a tasty notion. But with it comes balsamic portobello mushrooms, garlic spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and veal jus, plus very good whipped potatoes. Too much of many good things isn't a good thing. Still, this is as good a lunch spot as you'll find in the area, and service is excellent. The all-American (chiefly California) wine list numbers well over 50 brands, almost all available by the glass. If you're out to impress, check the reserve list.
