Fantastic. One of the better meals/experiences I have had in some time. 6 course meal was better than I expected. No idea what was coming, which made the experience even better....as it would usually be something I would not order off a menu on my own. I was experiencing new things. And they were great.

We used our Groupon to experience the tasting menu. Everything was delicious. We started with the root vegetable salad, then the butternut squash soup, on to the fried chicken, shrimp and grits, the cheese plate, and finally the yummy dessert. Go hungry and expect to be there a couple hours.

Everything about this place was amazing, the service was spectacular, the food was fresh and delicious. The history behind each dish helped close the deal . This place is a foodies utopia. My husband stated this food was like being at a 3D movie so bring your 3D appetite .....

 (Seattle)·Dined on November 11, 2017

I really wanted to like this place....
Biscuits to start were very dry & bland. No flavor at all.
"Lump" crab cake looked like it was commercially made like you would buy at the grocery store prepackaged. You know, too perfect for hand made at a restaurant kind of look. No lumps just some strands of meat. Maybe the worst I have ever had. Flavor not good & texture not right.
Slaw with the crab cake was not good either. Just bad flavor.
The bland rice under the cake & slaw was my favorite thing, only because it didn't taste bad.
I didn't eat much of the crab cake or slaw. The waiter never noticed until we were ready for the check. I tried to let it go, telling him it was fine & I just didn't like it. He kept pushing for more details even though I just wanted him to let it go. He took it off the bill in the end. I didn't ask, but he did. Then he apologized about 5 times. Once is enough, let it go. It is getting annoying.
My wife had the fish, not sure what kind, but it was pretty good. The rest of her dish was just OK she said.
A friend had some risotto, which she said was pretty good, but she could make at home. She said one oyster was good & the other wasn't as good.
Most things were either under or over salted. I know "fine dining" often means no salt & pepper on the table, but it was needed here. If you are not going to season correctly, you should provide it.
$85ish + tip for 2 entrees, 2 oysters, a salad & 3 drinks. Pricey for the quality we thought.
Our 2nd time here & neither has been very good. We decided it will be our last. Food is not that good for the price.

Although the service and ambience were exceptional, we were not impressed by the food. We had expected much higher quality, given the high ratings Heirloom gets as a "foodie" paradise. My spouse's crab cake was almost inedible--very bready and a little "old" tasting--and her salad came saturated in dressing. My meal--the red drum special--was better. The whole wheat biscuits seemed like a nice touch, but they were a bit dried out. We did really appreciate the lovely touches for our anniversary, however--a complimentary glass of champagne and some sweets at the end of the meal. And as a same-sex couple, we very much appreciated the welcome we received. Still, our overall impression was that, although the place was charming and welcoming, we have had much better meals elsewhere.

My wife and I have been there for the last 3 years for our anniversary and have had a great experience. This time was a bit less of the thrill we were expecting. We understand that everyone has a bad day from time to time so all is forgiven. We were compensated and were ok with it.. Overall we will most likely come back.

The food and service were great. This restaurant specializes in all NC products and has a rustic interior. I went with the 6 course tasting menu and wine pairing. The food was delicious but none of the items were actually on the menu. The salad and soup course were fantastic, the app of calamari had great flavor but was chewy. The duck entree was the best duck dish i have had. The deconstructed pumpkin cheesecake was fantastic. The cheese course of cheesy popcorn was a bit of a disappointment. The wine pairings were great and good size.

Wow, they did it again! Another wonderful experience at Heirloom. Service was fantastic and made my birthday special by bringing me milk and cookies. Food was amazing except I didn't care for the fish...very salty. It was the first thing I haven't liked there in 4 visits. We did the 6 course option. Salad great, soup amazing, liked 1 main course (Heirloom chicken and slaw) but not the fish, loved cheese and jam and dessert. Overall exquisite!

The service was excellent and they made us feel extra special for our anniversary date. The food was great and we are very glad they source their food from local farms. My wife and I have dinned at most of the top rated restaurants in Charlotte, Asheville and Charleston. This restaurant ranks up there as one of the best. We will definitely return.

Our dinner was superb as usual. The menu at Heirloom is so creative. Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. The only glitch in our otherwise very enjoyable evening was our reservation. We made it on open table and I got a confirmation. Somehow that information was not forwarded to the restaurant. When I showed them my confirmation they couldn't have been more accommodating. At the end of our meal our waiter brought us a complimentary dessert and apologized for the mixup. My first bad experience with open table.

My only issue was that it took us over 2 hours to eat. We did order the 6 course tasting menu so I'm not sure if that plays into to amount of time. I felt the waiter kept forgetting about us, like when to get the next course started in the kitchen. I'm not sure if they didn't have enough staff or maybe he is a new waiter? Overall we will definitely be back, the food is amazing!

I had heard many good things and we finally decided to celebrate a birthday there. What an amazing experience.

We were the first to arrive that night, about 10 minutes ahead of our 6:00 reservation. As we knew from other review, the outside was nothing special, but the inside was perfect. The vibe was exactly what farm-to-table dictates... Rustic, home, comfortable.

Mark's service was impeccable, although he struggled with the the menu some as it was first night. The food was phenomenal, although we shied away from the tasting menu... We got much more for the same price a la carte.

We will definitely return.

My experience at Heirloom Restaurant was nothing short of AMAZing! I loved the relaxed feel of the restaurant - it's like a comfortable dining room in a friend’s home. My friend girl and I were visiting for the first time to celebrate her birthday. Michael, the general manager, provided personalized service from the moment I made the reservations until we left the restaurant for the night. I appreciated his attentiveness, sincerity and appreciation for us choosing the restaurant. He did an outstanding job to ensure my friend’s birthday was something to remember. They even personalized her name on the menu and gave her a signed copy to take home. Our waiter, Patrick, did an amazing job explaining the food options, keeping us entertained, and ensuring we had the best possible experience. We were spoiled by the entire wait staff! For dinner, I tried the 6-course tasting menu, which included duck, fried oysters, and several other tasty items. My friend ordered an appetizer, main course and some sides. The chicken chips appetizer is really good and seasoned very well. I am allergic to dairy, so I was thoroughly impressed with the dairy-free version of the tasting menu dishes, especially the homemade dairy-free ice-cream. Everything was absolutely delicious and seasoned to perfection! We loved the creativity of the menu and the fact that everything is local to NC. Heirloom is definitely a hidden-gem and I would highly recommend checking them out!

We came here for my birthday and had a wonderful time. I made the reservation online a few days in advance and noted special requests due to food allergies. Someone called me the following day to confirm the reservation and informed me that the chef would be happy to create 6 courses that would accommodate my needs. When we arrived, we were greeted immediately with a personalized menu. The staff was friendly and the ambiance was romantic and relaxing. The food was delicious!! We finished everything on our plates. We loved the experience and will definitely be returning with family and friends!

We were really looking forward to this farm to table dining experience as we are major foodies and have dined in many high end restaurants all over Charlotte and the country. All in all it was just ok. The food really did not meet the beautiful descriptions given by our waiter. Two of our party had the fried chicken, which they did enjoy. One had the shrimp and grits and unfortunately did not like it at all as it seemed dry as there really was negligible sauce which seemed odd for shrimp and grits. One had the tasting dinner. Everything was pretty good, the pasta dish was the least favorite part with the lamb main course the favorite, very tasty. Too much food though, ended up taking two parts of the seven courses home and one did not travel well and ended up being thrown away. The beeswax mozzarella salad while sounding interesting and tasty ended up not liking this at all. The mozzarella had a funky taste that no one in our party cared for. Wish they had left the beautiful buffalo mozzarella alone. Did not have dessert. The meal was ok but disappointing, the biggest disappointment upon returning home was how much sodium we realized was in the food. One of our party is sensitive to sodium and had a very bad reaction and two others were extremely uncomfortable from the bloating and retention from the sodium. The service was exceptional, however. Surprised by all the 5 star reviews as this experience was most definitely not a 5 star for us. Were we left with a craving to return for another taste of something we ate, not really, so unfortunately, we most likely would not return. While their intentions are good they have much to work on.
