Heirloom Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Have always wanted to try this place - can see it from the train. I was happy they participated in the LI Restaurant week so got a slight discount. Very attentive but not intrusive wait staff. Extensive drink list if that is a priority to a diner. Tone of place was relaxed yet emphasis on excellence in quality as well as service. Pumpkin ale with brown sugar on the rim of glass (classy) Leek and fennel soup, chicken cordon bleu with fresh haricots, and the real super treat was (drumroll please) the Pumpkin Creme brûlée! So unbelievably smooth, creamy and delicious. They have burgers too. The only nit picky thing was that it was too shadowy and dimly lit. I hope to repeat Heirloom Tavern again soon.
We have never been to this restaurant but decided to try it for restaurant week. The seating was a bit cramped and the acoustics a bit loud, but the vibe was friendly and cozy. We especially liked the pumpkin ravioli appetizer and the skirt steak entree. We forced ourselves to eat dessert, and the winner there was the profiteroles. Of note, too, were the mixed drinks which though expensive were worth it. We will be back to try other yummy looking choices from their menu. A new neighborhood find!!
Decent place with good food but it's very very loud. We came here for my wife's birthday and felt a bit uncomfortable for that occasion. Also, we were offered a seat in the back where waiters pass-by or on a high-table near the bar upfront - neither one is ideal for a birthday dinner!
We love the place maybe they should place noise ceiling cushions up or wall absorptions so a date night can actually happen without shouting at each other, kind of take the romance out of the date saying WHAT, WHAT, I DID NOT HEAR YOU, WHAT DID YOU SAY. Loud is not sexy.
First visit to Heirloom Tavern was Great!
Had a wonderful meal, all the dishes we tried were fantastic. Fried calamari was perfectly executed (light and crispy, not greasy) with 3 nice sauces; spicy shrimp lettuce wraps were AMAZING, almost ordered a second round! Steak au poivre and blackened swordfish were well executed and very tasty. Skipped desert but cappuccino and Italiano coffee cocktail were great. Nice wine list as well. Cozy, casual atmosphere that was very enjoyable. All in all, we look forward to coming back!
Per usual Heirloom Tavern was wonderful last Saturday. Our starters, my wife's consisting of shrimp, and mine of oysters, were delicious. My wife had broiled salmon, which was prepared that way at her request. My steak au poivre went great with green beans and french fries - good to the last morsel. I highly recommend Heirloom Tavern for the chef. Service has always been excellent as well.
I've been to this restaurant three times. The first two times were great. But this last time I was very disappointed. I ordered fish. And it tastes fishy. And the my fiancé and I order mussels as an appetizer, which they were also fishy. I'm sad to say I was disappointed with the food.
My wife and I have been to Heirloom Tavern a number of times and have not been disappointed on any of them. Compliments to the chef for a very tasty grilled halibut topped encrusted with nuts. My wife had excellent chicken. Service, as usual, was excellent. The regular menu and specials never fail to delight.
Heirloom Tavern is the type of place that everyone should be lucky enough to have close by. It's the perfect neighborhood spot - comfortable, warm and welcoming. Not to mention the extensive menu, excellent preps and delicious food!
I have to travel 30 minutes from my house to get there, but it's well worth the trip.
I choose this restaurant specifically because they were one of the local restaurants that served organic food. I felt the prices were a little high, but generally organic food is priced higher. The bread served wasn't the best I've had. Average Italian bread. I would have preferred grilled soft pita with hummus than the crumbly, crusty bread. We started off with the fried calamari appetizer, which was average. The dipping sauces were pretty good, but the fish a tad over fried. I ordered the mango crab salad, which was on special. It was quite good, but it wasn't a salad. It was really crab tartar. Portion size did not appear large, but ended up being fair; I was expecting a salad with greens however. I was disappointed that the seafood was not sustainably sourced, otherwise I would have ordered the salmon. My husband ordered the burger, which he found to be average. It was cooked appropriately though. For the price, I probably wouldn't return for a full meal. I would come to sit at the bar and order the 'bar bites' . Service and ambiance were very good!
Been there numerous times in the past when I lived in Sea Cliff. Always loved it and their other place, The Brass Rail. A little pricey, but very nice-sized portions, so I had no problem.
However, now, while the food is still first-rate, the portions are embarrassingly small!!! I had the pork chop with mushroom risotto & wilted spinach. When I pointed it out to my waiter, he was kind of indifferent.
I can say, this is the first time I left a good restaurant not full.
Oh, and I started with the fried calamari....also small.
My dinner companion's portions were also small.
Very good food....NO LONGER A GOOD VALUE!!!!
My wife and I were most impressed with this restaurant in Glen Head. The menu was quite varied and offered lots of interesting choices. For starters, I had oysters on the half shell and my wife had a leek soup which was a special that night. My wife ordered the organic chicken which was served with mushrooms and a second vegetable of her choice. She rarely finishes all of her entree but cleaned her plate. I had red snapper atop mushrooms and small potatoes which were enhanced with a very nice orange sauce - not sweet - but which complimented the entire dish. Service was excellent.
Had dinner on a Sunday night. So pleasant & quiet. Saturday nights are usually very noisy though. The food is excellent as always. Various salads ordered were very fresh & tasty with interesting combos. Lobster carbonara was good but a touch too much pancetta for my taste.
The Heirloom Tavern is very good. The food is consistently fresh and the service is attentive.
We live close by so this is a go-to favorite but it is worth the drive from elsewhere.
The restaurant itself is somewhat small but plenty of room at your table. My favorite is
the endive salad followed up with the grilled octopus. My wife loves the skirt steak, mashed potatoes and grilled brussell sprouts. Limited menu but everything they have focused on is
Once again a terrific dining experience at Heirloom Tavern. The food is outstanding and the service is terrific. I again requested a particular table via Open Table and the host accommodated us perfectly. The best local restaurant in the the Glen Head area!
I got eaten alive by mosquitoes in the outdoor dining area - the torches they have did not help at all. I asked the waiter if there was anything they could do and he moved the fans to direct wind towards me but unfortunately that did not help. If a restaurant offers outdoor seating in LI there is no reason they would not invest in a propane fueled mosquito trap. This is my only complaint, the food and drinks were good.
