    Gretchen was a phenomenal server and had some great recommendations. We loved the chicken livers and ravioli, crab cake, and duck entree. The chocolate molten cake was the perfect end to a great meal! Heirloom is one of our favorites and it never disappoints!!!

    Service was phenomenal. Absolutely spot on. The crab cake appetizer was spicy and delicious. My filet was cooked perfectly medium rare. The lava cake was TVs best I’ve ever had. To top it off, the double double Oaked Woodford bourbon was amazing. 5 star meal.

    We had to wait a very long time for our food and our server never came to the table to refill water while we waited. We were a table of six with automatic gratuity so perhaps there was no incentive.

    The New Year Eve’s meal was even more memorable and outstanding than previous meals which is setting the bar high! The French onion soup was outstanding and the best I’ve ever tasted- it should be given a prize! The sea bass and lamb were wonderful and by then we were almost too full for the amazing desserts. Can’t wait to see what 2023 holds for Heirloom!

    Arrived at 7:25 for 7:30 reservation. Seated at 8:20, had to ask for a server. Food from a preset meal arrived at 9:00. Lamb chops were raw and probably cold. Sent it back and two minutes later a new meal was brought to me. The worst. Nothing but fat.

    New Year's Eve Dinner. Obvious problems with bookings and being able to seat on time. Waited 30 minutes after seat for service. Spouse enjoyed Chilean Fish, my Beef Wellington was just fair. Not my first visit. Pretentious and WAY over priced. Just my opinion

    We used to love this place and were so excited about the NYE pre fixe menu, but this was disappointing. They seemed to be understaffed and the meat we all ordered was undercooked. We prefer medium rare meat, but this was very rare. We heard another table send back their meat to be cooked more as well. We don’t mind splurging on a special occasion but this did not feel worth the price.

    My husband and I wanted to have a lunch somewhere nice and quaint. We’ve eaten here several times. Buttermilk Brined chicken was great. Livers didn’t seem to hold coating on them so there was no crispiness to them. I’ve had them many times so wasn’t expecting any less but maybe wasn’t a good day for that dish. Server was very nice and efficient but seemed a bit rushed so must of had quite a few tables. We’ll be back. Always a nice close get a way from the same old chain restaurants

    Wonderful food as always! Get the crab cake as a starter. Phenomenal! Had the bouillabaisse special, which was perfect! Huge portion which ultimately just means a great leftovers lunch coming soon! Wife had the parpadelle bolognese which was great as well. Service was on point and it seems like we always run into friends there which happened on this visit as well. Highly recommend!

    We enjoyed our meals, but both were overly salty, the snapper more so than the steak. With all the other wonderful flavors, there was no need for excessive salt.
