The Heritage Restaurant
For future culinary chefs its greatThe food presentation was good. I ordered the scallops prepared by a student chef named Rowan. (I like to ask) They cam out perfectly cooked with a cornbread based batter. It also had this radish sauce. It was quite the fair. I did order a fresh prink lemonade and someone forgot to add sugar.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!The Heritage is one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in Grand Rapids. The menus are always creative and feature the best and freshest (and local) ingredients. The food and service are high quality and outstanding. Food is plated beautifully. Staff is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. I like supporting a culinary educational program and am always amazed at the work of the students. GRCC's Culinary Arts Program (which runs the Heritage) is top notch. Prices, by the way, are very reasonable for the high quality of food and service.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Anniversary LunchWe enjoyed our lunch with a couple of exceptions;
The main entree seem to come out a little slowly. We were at lunch for over an hour. Our waiter (Ned) was attentive, courteous, served properly. He did not know what kind of scallops were on the menu other than to say they were "about the size of a fifty cent piece". My wife, having worked at two four star restaurants in D.C. thought this was strange since obviously he is training in the cullinary arts.
I had the ravioli for an appetizer and they were not quite al dente, a little firmer than they should have been and they did not taste very cheesy.
Unfortunately we did not have desert because both of the chocolate selections were gone already. Overall 90 out of 100. We will come back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dining experience.Fantastic dining experience. I am recommending it to everyone I know! Food, presentation and service were outstanding!

The goal is to present a gourmet 5 star meal with exceptional service and presentation. The food is not always worthy of 5 stars but the effort is.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time & it was impressive!First time visiting The Heritage, and I must say I was impressed. The decor and service was reminiscent of the previous Cygnus restaurant in the Amwsy Grand Hotel. Food was excellent, service outstanding, and had a wonderful time.
I will certainly stop back again, as well as tell others about our great experience.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe two person table was tooThe two person table was too long. 2nd party was very far away with centerpeiece between.

What a great experience!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMslow drinks - GREAT foodAs ususal here, the wait for the first drink (bottle of wine in our case) was well over half-hour - simply unacceptable to me, but we like the place and it's purpose so much that we dine here frequently anyway. The food is fabulous and the servers are "in training." We appreciate the learning curve and it is always fun to talk to the students about their ambitions. I had the pork loin which was divine.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Heritage will always beThe Heritage will always be ranked as one of my favorites.
