Lovely little spot, delicious food, we were 4 colleagues and had a great dinner.
Lucky to have such a solid fixture in the neighborhood!
Excellent food and attentive service, a definite gem!
Service was very good and friendly, but at this price point the food needs to be very good. Multiple dishes were overly salted and the overall quality of the food preparation was lacking. I’d been here once before and was looking forward to this second visit. Didn’t realize it would be my last
Awesome as always. Our go-to place for a delicious meal!!
Perfect. Like always!
Could not have been better
We had a fabulous dinner. My only reservation is I am a celiac, and something I was served was contaminated with gluten.
Charming neighborhood restaurant. Cosy, warm and inviting and the food is definitely tasty. The asparagus soup with pickled mushrooms was a stand out. Lovely wine list
Great food and service. Docking a point because they don't take American Express.
Excellent ambiance. Restored old building with antique wall paper, rustic wood tables, candles and low light but not in a mysterious or dark way. Open kitchen with seating. Great neighborhood find. Excellent bread (scorching hot). Nice wine. Our food was excellent but they could ease up on the salt. Servers are dressed casually and are very personable.
Fabulous night. Delicious dinner, especially the cabbage salad and short ribs!! Yummy!!
One of my favorite spots for any night of the week or weekend. They offer prix fixe or a la carte but if there's something on the prix fixe that you'd like, they'll let you order the dish.
The owner Matt and the staff are wonderful and some nights you'll catch Matt in the kitchen. Grab a seat at the bar or a table and you won't be disappointed. Extensive wine list to choose from, and some of the best wines we've tasted.
This is a great spot, one of my favorites for a casual but nice dinner. Always friendly attentive services, great well presented food and a nice wines with it. A little on the pricey side but everything is excellent quality so I understand why.
Went to Heirloom Cafe last night after a friend was raving about it. Unfortunately, we were quite underwhelmed with our experience. The place itself is nice and spacious, but way too dark. I should probably mention that I'm not a huge fan of dark restaurants.
The food was a mix bag. We enjoyed the bread, which comes as no surprise since it was from Josey Baker (of The Mill). They definitely charge way too much for it, and I find it ridiculous that they charged for butter and olive oil too, after I'm paying $5 for 5 small slices of bread. The butternut squash soup was nice and warm; it had a wonderful flavor and wasn't overly salty, which we appreciated. The beets in the beet salad were too strongly pickled, although it was interesting to combine beets with homemade almond butter. The little gem salad with delicata squash lacked flavor. It was very muted and not exciting at all. I had to combine the beets with the salad to give it more excitement. The delicata squash did not excite either. For the mains, we ordered the fettucine with mushrooms and truffle and the cioppino. I found the fettucine to be underwhelming; I think I'm a tomato sauce person, so that could have factored into it. The cioppino had high quality seafood in it, but it was way too salty. All in all, I would say it wasn't worth the trip across town.
Excellent dinner in a neighborhood feeling place that is not overly trendy or precious. Open kitchen with bar seating is a real plus. Highly recommended.
Only the noise marred the evening. But that was beyond irritating. How about some efforts at damping the sound?
The atmosphere is wonderful,cozy. The food is consistently excellent!!!
Heirloom is consistently one of the best restaurants in the Mission. It also seems to remain below the radar, for reasons I can't fathom (though, as long as they keep doing what they're doing, I'm not complaining). I had dinner there with three foodies Friday night (including the owner of another, much ballyhooed Mission restaurant), and we were all struck by the quality of the food: the salad was bursting with flavor; the off-menu cheeseburger (with the cheese ground into the beef before cooking) was mouth-watering; the cioppino was atypical, but yummy; and the chicken was my favorite of all -- moist and flavorful and beautifully complemented with a mushroom cream sauce. The servers were attentive and charming. And the lively, candlelit, intimate space is just where you want to be for dinner with friends.
Super fresh and delicious cabbage with satsuma mandarin salad. Amazing duck confit. Great Nebbiolo. We love Heirloom Cafe!
Food and service were wonderful. Reservation honored on time.
Only issue was/is noise level, which is high.
Great food selection and wine cellar. Great evening.
I have been to Heirloom several times over the past few years, and have always valued the experience. This time was different. The waiter was arrogant and inexperienced; and the food (although I do appreciate smaller portions) seemed to come in ridiculously tiny quantities. My impression was one of a restaurant that has come to take itself too seriously.
Excellent food; excellent wine list; overall terrific experience.
Great! Very easy to hear
This is one of the SF restaurants that we enjoy returning with special out of town guests. We like showing off the service and wonderful food with good friends. You can't miss on the food here!
We were excited to visit this trendy place for NYE
The space is retro cool but very noisy and very hot from the open kitchen, we were all boiling in December
The food was pretty but not innovative, suttle flavors and tiny portions
My Beef rib was super greasy, literally it sat in oily bottom with potatoes au gratin, I was very disappointed with it
The vegetarian option was nicely presented but it lacked in flavor and the portion was an appetizer size
The beet salad was perfect and delish but again tiny, I don’t think we got a full beer on the plate
The desert was of limited choice but it was very good
Overall not really a festive meal one would expect for NYE but it did include a glass of champagne each
The total bill was almost $500 and we were hungry in an hour
I love Heirloom and recommend it highly for its precise, tasty, well executed seasonal food and nicely curated wine list. I often take friends from out of town there, and go there myself several times a year.
These are minor points, but I am noting them: I was frustrated by the darkness of the place this time; we had to use our cell phone lights to read our menus, which means it's too dark. It also made conversation difficult, as it quickly got loud, but was still very dark.
I've now been to Heirloom Cafe three times with two other people. Great wine list and small, well thought out menu. Very cozy surroundings. A nice walk from and back to the 24th St. BART station.
Great place, wonderful service, good wine list. We were there till pretty late but the staff did not show any signs of hurrying us. Good, local food
This is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. The lighting is dim, which makes you feel like you've journeyed to a different world. Delicious wine and the servers are knowledgeable, but not in a show-off way. Connection is the name of the game at heirloom. Connection to the food, the wine, your companion - guided by the staff and the energy in the room.
Love love love love it.
This is my favorite restaurant in the Bay Area, hands down. The food is always amazing — seasonally available ingredients prepared with love. The service is top-notch — a very attentive team will take good care of you. And their wine list is worth the trip. This is not to be missed — for your first time or your hundredth.
Great meal, everything was delicious. Warm ambiance. Stellar service.
A warm welcome with delicious food is the hallmark of Heirloom. One of the great wine lists in SF, but enjoyable even if wine is not important to you. Somewhat under the radar, but consistently a great experience.
Loved the cozy atmosphere. Food was absolutely delicious, loved that the menu was completely seasonal. The chicken and duck entrees were fantastic. Would totally come back!!
Really delicious meal. The sole we had was truly outstanding. Also a fantastic wine list
Great food. Kitchen was killing it tonight. Wine suggestions were spot on. Service was friendly and professional.
Love what Matt does
A welcoming atmosphere, warm reception, attentive, knowledgable service, small but intelligently thought out menu and carefully chosen wine list of international and domestic labels.
