Heirloom Cafe Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
We don't get to go out to dinner too often since having small children, so a night out is really special to us. Heading to Heirloom means we know that we shall have an amazing meal, great wine and the best service. When you only have rare nights out, you want to be sure you get to enjoy it!
I've been to this restaurant a couple of times, and it has been excellent both times. I liked every aspect of it. But on this last visit, the stand out was the service, which was exceptional from start to finish. Combine that with a great ambiance and excellent food and you have a winner.
Nice to walk into Heirloom Cafe on a wet and cold Wednesday night and settle into our seats. Attentive waitstaff and interesting menu... my wife had the fettuccine with the pork sugo and I had the black cod. Wine list was excellent and our server’s recommendations for each of our meals was spot on... already looking forward to our next visit...
The Food & Service here are excellent, and the vibe is warm and kind, but there are some challenges. The lighting is extremely low, unless you get a table next the kitchen, so bring a flashlight. There is no acoustic treatment and the place gets very loud, so be prepared to shout or else come really early or really late. It's worth overcoming these small hurdles, it's an experience not to be missed.
While the food and the service were great, the noise was so out of control in the restaurant I will not be returning. I️ shouted at my friends for 2 hours at a table of 5. If you like yelling across a table and eating in the dark this is your go to restaurant, if not, don’t bother.
