A word from Heritage Grill
At the base of Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Metairie, in the Heritage Plaza complex that serves as the hub to so much of New Orleans’ popular media, the local lunchtime population is in for a treat. A Ralph Brennan-style treat. Easily accessible from downtown New Orleans, his new Heritage Grill is destined to become the go-to lunch spot for those who mix mid-day business with pleasure. Heritage Grill feature a New American menu that emphasizes the flavors of New Orleans and spans the range of luncheon whims from just-a-salad to mid-day-meal. It features Warm Crab Dip to start; Duck & Andouille Gumbo for your gumbo fix; BBQ Oyster Salad to keep it light; a House-roasted Turkey Sandwich with Buttermilk Onion Rings as a classic combo; and full entrées like Heritage Grill Filet and the signature Crab cakes & Angel Hair Pasta.

    When we arrived we waited 45 minutes after our reservation to be seated. The buffet itself was very messy. Many of the items did not have their own serving utensils, and the serving utensils that were present needed to be cleaned. It was not a wide variety of food to chose from, but the food was good, not great. The waiter never came to refill any beverages. The plates were cleared in a timely manner. When the bill arrived, the 3 year old was charged for a child's meal which was supposed to be free for children under 6. Although it did not ruin our Mother's day, it left a lot to be desired. Very disappointing from a Brennans establishment.

    We made last minute reservations for Mother's Day brunch at Heritage Grill. The buffet brunch was outstanding. A good variety of food for both breakfast and lunch choices. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was great as well. I would highly recommend this place.

    This restaurant was recommended to me for a lunch meeting because it's supposed to be a place that you can take your time a stay a while. We had a late lunch meeting scheduled for 1:30. We got there and were rushed to get order in because the kitchen closed at 2. Then rushed to pay bill because the place was shutting down. We ultimately were able to stay and the server was great and the food good. But just the opposite of what we planned for regarding time.

    First trip to Heritage Grill. Five of us met up for lunch to try out Ralph Brennan's latest eatery. This modern high rise on the Orleans and Jefferson Parish line has had several restaurants in the past. It is one of the few locations that offers a highrise view. We tried various tasty appetizers including the baked oysters, soup of the day, house made potato chips and house salads. The entree that was outstanding was the grilled cheese and short rib dip. OMG. Rich, rich and more rich. The 10cent martinis are a bonus. We will go back.

    I was expecting greatness, considering this is a Brennan property. But this is honestly the worst meal I've ever had. The steak was so fatty there was barely any meat to eat and the meat their was was flavored so badly I couldn't finish it. I left hungry and will never return.

    We made last-minute plans for dinner on New Year's Eve, and Heritage Grill was one of the few restaurants with reservations. The food was fabulous. I ordered the duck entrée, and it was some of the most tender duck breasts I have ever had! Service was friendly but not intrusive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch and dinner.

    I was a little disappointed that when I arrived there was a pre fix menu with no choices, I feel that when restaurants do this there should be a note on Open Table so there is no surprise when you arrive. Food was very good, service was a bit slow....all in all a great ending to 2013. Will definitely go back to try the regular menu.

    The lunch was good although the P and J baked oysters were the star of the show. When I go back and if it is available I will be having them with a salad for lunch only. While the special with crab and a red sauce was ok the red sauce over powered the crab that I would not have again. But the place is always good. The hanger steak that they have had in the past is wonderful. I will surely go again.

    The heritage grill was amazing. The food was incredible, the ambiance was perfect. There was a piano playing to settle the mood. No one seemed aggravated that we had very small children with us, and they were messy. Wesley in the bar area gave impeccable service and since we sat in the bar area, we had all the Turkey day football coverage. The buffet was amazing and The Heritage Grill offered endless Mimosas! Happy wife Happy life right!? We had a predetermined amount of what we wanted to spend on lunch, needless to say the Heritage Grill buffet came in well under that amount and we were able to leave what I hope was an above average tip to show our appreciation.

    This was a good choice for Thanksgiving. Having the reputation of a good restaurant since it was a Ralph Brennan restaurant it exceeding what I thought would a better alternative than staying at home and cooking Thanksgiving dinner. I had a feeling since we were coming the last half hour of the scheduled dining hour that the food would of been picked over with not many choices. We were wrong. Everything as advertised was available and it was like it was just prepared. The entrees were all hot juicy and perfect. Not dry and overlooked. Everything on the buffet was very fresh and this was a half an hour before closing. I was impressed by the quality of the food. A very meal , great acoustics, very clean.

    I have always enjoyed the bar at this restaurant, even before it was Heritage Grill. This is the second time I have eaten here for a special occasion. The other time was Thanksgiving. My son formerly worked for the Ralph Brennan and we have frequented his restaurants. My son has had lunch at Heritage Grill and said it was great. I will go back for lunch, happy hour etc and definitely recommend to others. Thank you

    Service rated as "fair" because it was very slow and I had to ask for my water glass to be refilled twice. Possibly this was a result of the Christmas lunch rush and the fact that our server told us that she was "new." My table of four waited ten minutes before drink order was taken.

    The food was pretty good, the BBQ shrimp and the duck spring rolls were awesome. Our waitress was not real friendly and we had to keep asking for stuff. Our reservations were for 12:00, the waitress told us their special (appetizer) was crab cakes so we ordered some, she came back a few minutes later and told us they were out. We noticed that other tables had hot bread but we did not get any so we asked for some. She said they were out of break because there was a party of 50 in the back and that they had to cook more. It took us about 30 minutes before she finally brought us some bread (which was delicious). Overall the food was great, I think they were just a little unprepared with the large party and the normal lunch crowd.
