Food is always good and the drink menu is nice. I love the desserts there. My only complaint is that the cookies with buttercream frosting was actually cream cheese base, not buttercream.

The food was great, the problem was the attention. The food came in one hour after it was ordered.. I think our server forgot to put our food in the system and it took an hour. Also, we barely saw him come around which kind of suck because I really wanted another glass of wine...

My boyfriend and I will give it another try with a different server for sure.

I went there for Vday with my boyfriend and I gotta say that is a very pleasant fine restaurant to go. All the food was very good and I'll be definitely going back. So that's a 5 start from me! :D

Every aspect of our lunch was perfect. The food choices were all tempting. The quinoa bowl was so delicious, as were the salads and eggs. The portions are plentiful and the presentation attractive. Service is impeccable: unobtrusive and helpful.
We will definitely return. Perfect!!!

Atmosphere were great. The crab dip was delicious with a nice smokey flavor. Lamb ragu was amazing. The pasta had the slightest bite to it which I love, hate mushy pasta. My wife's burger was ok, but nothing to write home about.

The warm Ricotta is great and the Burger is superior to the one at Fred’s.

I used to hold this as the second best place in CT for a burger, but not anymore. Food took forever to come and was lukewarm when it did. It was excessively salty and my stomach was roiling that night. Service as okay, but nothing special. Server clearly didn't understand what dry white wine was or whether there were any by-the-glass offerings that would meet that criteria. All in all, a real miss for the first time in years.

We dropped in for a quick Tuesday night dinner. The choice was perfect - heirloom was quiet, delicious, and prompt. On a mid week eveneing we wanted a quick bite and a chance to go over our schedules. Heirloom was just right.

Disappointed. Frequent diner at Heirloom. Quality and taste less than usual excellent. Found large bone in lamb ragu. Salad was very salty. Broccoli was mired in thick overpowering sauce. Donuts were over cooked. Not the usual great experience. Wondered if chef changed or an off night.

I’ve been here several times for bunch and dinner. Last visit was dinner for four. Love the seasonal menu. The waiter brought us an amuse bouch of the deviled eggs new to the menu which we enjoyed.
We shared the liver pate and the warm crab dip, both served with their excellent bread. Yummy.
I loved the scallops with spaghetti squash and golden raisins. Both guys ordered the lamb ragu which had great depth of flavor.
It was a great experience.
