    Wonderful food and prompt friendly service is the engine that makes this place go. Angel was fantastic and the Fifer farms collaboration is wonderful as I'm learning they have some of the best produce around. heirloom is a gem nit to be missed. keep up the great work.

    We enjoyed a delicious dinner for my friend’s birthday. The pork chops and chicken were honestly the most tender and flavorful dishes we have ever had! The burrata appetizer is not to be missed. We look forward to returning with our husbands.

    Sitting outside was a bit warm and they maybe could improve the umbrella coverage of their patio, but, otherwise, we had a delightful dining experience. The service was friendly and efficient, the food marvelously creative. The Tomato Toast was unique and wonderful, an excellent appetizer. My tuna was delicious as weee the accompanying vegetables. Everyone in our group was well pleased with the food and service. Thank you to Cindy, my former neighbor, for the recommendation!

    One of our favorite restaurants anywhere. Always creative, tasty and fresh. Dishes are well composed and a good value. There’s also no place that specializes in rose wines like Heirloom! If you can get a reservation, go.

    From the moment we were seated we were catered to. We sat outside on a 90+ degrees night with great shade and a breeze. Our water glasses were never empty, everyone who walked by our table kept refilling our glasses. The food was the best meal I have had in years. The butter they have with your rustic bread to start the night is made is a great indication of what is to come. The tomato toast appetizer was perfection. Fresh marinated tomatoes. pickled onions, on crispy bread with whipped feta. Entree was the Scallops with fresh vegetables and 2 sauces. The spice on the side sauce was a pleasant surprise. We ended the night with the panna cotta. It was refreshing and perfect for a hot summer night. I look forward to my next visit to Lewes and Heirloom. From the service to the food, I am blown away and hope everyone has a chance to experience such a wonderful meal with super nice people.

    The appetizers and food were excellent. Presentation and taste superb. The young food runners did an excellent job explaining the charcuterie board and remaining appetizers that the table ordered. Gazpacho soup just average. Disappointing in our server she was not very attentive and forgot a few things. If service would have been better would have warranted five stars.

    Food was excellent. Seasoned just enough to not overwhelm the flavor of the food itself, but more to enhance it. Sides and sauces were very complimentary to the main entrée. The signature cocktails were tasty and refreshing. Staff is very friendly, and attentive to the guests as a team. We sat outside, with a perfect view of the beautiful church across the street. Desserts were delicious, not the same old thing as other restaurants. Will definitely return!

    We were celebrating my daughter’s 29 th birthday with a party of 8. Without asking, they seated us in a private room with a window to the kitchen. Service was great and the food was spectacular. Farm to table, desserts were all made from scratch on premises.

    It is always a special occasion when you dine at Heirloom. It is simply the best in the state of Delaware. Not only is the food, service and ambiance 5 star, Megan Lee’s leadership and the way she develops her staff deserves another 5 star rating. Our daughter and fiancée who live in the NYC immediate area frequently visit us in Lewes and they rate Heirloom with any top Manhattan restaurant. Can’t wait to return!

    The food was fresh, seasonal, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. The outdoor patio did have a lot of sun earlier in the evening but with time and umbrellas it was pleasant sitting outside. If you sit outside request a shaded spot under an umbrella in the summer. You will not be disappointed by the food.

    The charcuterie and cheese board was okay. The server, or bar, forgot our wine order and it took more than 10 minutes. The scallops were good, but nothing to write home about. We had to wait on water refills quite often. It would be nice if the water glasses weren't kid-sized. Dessert was good, chocolate cheesecake, but not great. Based on the reviews we expected amazing service and food, but is was just pretty standard. I wouldn't tell friends to avoid the restaurant, just don't expect it to blow your mind. Oh, also the flies were a bit much and the sun was brutal. Eat inside if you can help it!
