Heritage House serves a fusion of Mediterranean and contemporary American cuisine in colorful, casual surrounds. The restaurant's eclectic menu features an appealing array of small plate items, gluten-free dishes and savory entrées. Visit for lunch and make a meal of some beer-battered fish tacos or the restaurant's special fried chicken, served with buttermilk, waffles and maple syrup.
Heritage House is an ideal choice for a casual dining experience. The restaurant has a special "to share" menu that is suitable for group outings. This restaurant also serves a tidy list of beverages. Heritage house is open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Sunday.
The location is nice, menu looked great and the service was friendly - those are the only good things I can say about this place. Everything we had with the exception of the Kale soup (it is excellent) was bland. Overpriced as well. I know this place is new, but I don't see any potential.
Much to my dismay I was told that Heritage House closed and that Trattoria Rustica was moving in there. But this is not the case. You get the best of both. Trattoria Rustica did close their restaurant on Bloomfield Avenue but Heritage House is still there with their menu and with items off of Trattoria's menu. I have always liked Heritage House menu and really like the ambiance of the restaurant. So now you have both in one place on Park St. The other plus it's close to the parking garage.
Now that said, I had a great steak there and they called the wine store to deliver me a bottle of wine.
Also love their small plates. So if you heard it had closed you can go check out their old/new menu.
Asked if shrimp in pasta dish were grilled, Told yes, but when the dish arrived, they were not. The tuna tacos - ordered as a main menu item - arrive as two tiny tacos, and nothing else on the plate - more of an appetizer. Would definitely not return. Too many other good options in Montclair. Also the decor is very bad.
The hostess was very accommodating. Having heard of how roomy the place was, I was initially disappointed with my seating, but this was rectified rather quickly. The appetizers were not particularly impressive, but the main course was on the money. We ordered steak - bone in & ny skirt steak. They were seasoned and cooked to perfection. And, dessert was no let down. The apple crumb and cinnamon rum raisin ice-cream and the lava cake and vanilla ice-cream paired perfectly with our hot cappuccinos.
Heritage House is a new restaurant in a town filled with great places to eat. They need to let people know that they are there, they are different & they are worth trying out or they won't be there for long. The food is interesting, tasty & varied. We enjoyed several Tapas & were quite pleased with them. Service was great & the atmosphere is funky & fun. BYOB. Hope they last- I will go back for sure.
We were only people there on a Thursday evening/ service was AWESOME! No real salad selection though! while off menu we have steaks and both were good. BYOB was helpful. Food was weakest link and while acceptable not special and presentation was lacking. they did comp us the tomato/motz appetizer that was not on the menu but they made for us. its worth a try as they will work out the kinks and its always good to give a new place a chance.
Love the accessible farm fresh, locally sourced concept. The kids loved the mac and cheese bites. The chicken in the Chicken and Waffle dish was amazing! The brussel sprouts were unique and divine. Service was great and the whole staff was very attentive. Looking forward to going back to explore more on the menu.
The restaurant is beautiful inside and very good service, but the food was ok, not great. Good for a quiet dinner since the restaurant doesn't seem to get busy, it was actually quite empty. Better chef and this place has great potential.
This is a great restaurant. Casual but upscale. Not expensive and some exciting entrees. Chicken shrimp and grits were excellent. Cauliflower was very good as was the salmon. Also the best Naan bread. This restaurant is so good I don't understand why it is not busy. Other restaurants in Montclair have a line that are not as good.
Montclair has lots of restaurants, but it can still be hard to find one with an open table when you need it. So Heritage House is a welcome addition. Near shopping and theaters, this bright, clean dining experience is really welcome. The menu is billed as comfort food, but it's rather eclectic comfort food. The kitchen is quite imaginative in a positive way, such as seared tuna tacos and a 3 different burgers, only one with meat. We will be back.
are delicious. Rest of meal not great. Molten cake was undercooked, not molten (if the inside is grainy -- that's a clue), cauliflower tasty but not warm enough, grilled romaine? Don't do that. Don't put hummus and peanuts on everything. Great selection of non-alcoholic soda type drinks, staff truly tries, so didn't have the heart to tell them just how bad everything was. Not sure who dreamed this place up but we won't be back.
HH is a new addition to our community and it was a nice dinner. We ate alone on a Tuesday night -- HH hasn't received quite enough buzz yet to have a full house like Raymond's or others. The fried chicken and waffles were fresh and good and the chicken/shrimp and grits had a nice look and taste but was hoping the jalapeño would be in the grits not served sliced raw along the top. The highlight of the night was the cauliflower appetizer. Covered with a light later of crumbs and cashews, this hot dish was amazing and my wife and I ate it up in seconds. We will return, but for $60 bucks, it was an expensive dinner that contained no alcohol; their portions are not large enough to share.
We just discovered this place over the weekend and found out that it opened in September. We had to try it out, and it was definitely worth it. Great atmosphere, the service was brilliant, and the food was delicious.
My friend and I decided to try Heritage House because it is the new place in Montclair. The food was good. The staff was attentive and our waiter gave us good suggestions. I had the shrimp burger and creamed spinach. Both were very tasty. I would return to try some of the other entrees on the menu. I hope the Heritage House does well, the space is great.
It used to be JK Steakhouse now it is Heritage House and I thought it was excellent. Montclair needs something new and different. Since there are so many choices for dining in Montclair you have to be different. The menu is great. The chicken, shrimp and grits very good. The salmon very goid and they have very interesting appetizers and sides. Cauliflower and macaroni and cheese and the hummus were all great. Stop in you will be pleasantly surprised.
