Celebrated 2017 @ Heartland for the closing of the restaurant. Food, ambiance, value and menu was outstanding. Phillippe, our server was smart, caring and knowledgeable. He really took care of us. Lenny Russo made his rounds visiting nearly all the tables to Thank everyone for coming and their support of his efforts and dedication to local sourcing of foods. My wife and I will REALLY miss Heartland.

This was the last night that Heartland was open. The staff was for the most part poker-faced. Our server was nice. Pretty sure they substituted kale or another stiff green for spinach in two dishes we ordered. The only likeness between kale and spinach is that they are both green and leafy. Not really happy about that.

Fabulous food and service! Had the pumpkin soup, cheese fritters & bread was hot out of the oven. Cassoulet was delicious, my husband had the trout, split the Chocolate dessert & coffee - all Super yummy. Thank you- we are sad to see them close!

I found that the menu was very limited for this visit. I know they are closing this week; so I think that may have been the reason. We have dined here previously and it was a good experience, with great service. However this time, we found it to be extremely pricey for a very limited menu. Also, the hostess was not very welcoming, unfriendly considering we had reservations, was a milestone birthday celebration, and had guests we wanted to impress since never there before. It was very clear people were unhappy because they would be soon be out of a job. I wish the chef best wishes, and hope to see him open another restaurant in the near future.

I suppose a review doesn't really matter because they're closing and it's probably why the food wasn't up to its usual standards. My waiter was very casual toward me, and did not have a sense of timing as to when to clear my plates. The pumpkin soup was yummy with a nice texture and variety of flavors but it arrive tepid in the center and cool on the edges - I assume it sat out before someone brought it to me.
The beet salad had the equivalent of one half of a beet on it, mostly greens and too much dressing. I've eaten here before and have always been pleased but this was disappointing. I wanted my last time there to be a good memory.
On a positive, the Last Word cocktail was good.

Sadly, this restaurant will be closing on December 31, 2016. The prix fixe meals used to be some of the best deals in town, with four-star food coming at a Restaurant Week price. Now they have small and large plates. Yes it's pricey, but I've been to far too many inferior and equally expensive farm-to-table places. I will miss Heartland.

This was my first time at Heartland and am very disappointed in myself that I didn't make more of an effort to get to Heartland sooner. Very sad you are closing at the end of the year. My dining experience was wonderful, everything was great and have recommended you, but I told everyone you were closing at the end of the year.
