We specifically picked the Heritage because they boast live Jazz music. We arrived at 6:00 and there was no live music. A jazz piano player arrived sometime before 7:00...The music piped in was better. My husband had the duck and it was very good. I ordered the special - a 6-ounce filet mignon. At $44 I expected better. However, I did not complain as there was nothing else on the menu I would have preferred. The highlight of the meal was the waiter, very friendly, informative and timely.

I would say this place is generally for a younger crowd. When a band is playing, the sound level is deafening. Food and service were good, however. The bar is beautiful, would stop in for a drink and bite there on a quieter night.

I am a regular customer for Sunday brunch and Bluegrass at Heritage. The food is good, and the music is good, but the best thing about Heritage by far is the staff. I am a regular customer because of Christine, Siani, Olivia, and the rest of the staff.

We love the food and the space. Unfortunately, the service was lacking. Simple requests for soft drinks took nearly 20 minutes. Coffee was brought without a cup for decaf and without cream for at least 5-10 minutes after coffee came out. One of the meals came out almost 5 minutes after the rest. It wasn’t that busy either so it was a bit confusing why things were taking so long. Other than that, we had a great meal. Hopefully service will improve next time we come in.

The menu was limited, and there was an automatic charge on our bill for live music which we didn’t know until after we had paid. There was no music while we were there-the band was on a break. So that was a bummer

We booked a table so we could have dinner and listen to the live jazz band and our table was close to the bar which was fairly crowded. The band was great and the food was great, yet the bar crowd continue to swell right next to our table. The manager, Christina, noticed it and came right over to our table and moved it over for us. She then checked in with us throughout the evening. While the music was great and the food was great, the service was amazing.

I've been to bluegrass brunches at Heritage in the past, but not for a while. In the past, I enjoyed several different dishes. The room is lovely, with lots of wood and natural light.

This time, I noticed that they no longer offer French Press coffee, which was a disappointment. The coffee was ok, not great. And the server brought a small bottle of cream or milk, which contained enough for barely one cup.

My smoked salmon flatbread was very salty. I guess I should have asked about that first. The server was attentive, almost to the point of overdoing it. However, when we needed our table turned around so we could face the band, she did not offer to help or find someone who could, so we had to do it ourselves.

The band was delightful and very entertaining. I will return, but I will be cautious about which dish I order. By the way, there was no problem using two credit cards so we could split the bill. We appreciated that.

Overall, Heritage was a great place to eat, drink and listen to live music; however, if you are going to hangout a while after finishing your meal, beware! They got our meal out to us, in what felt like, 10 seconds and the waiter pretty much avoided our table until he saw we were almost done eating, trying to get us boxes and hurrying us up. He did not once come up to ask us if we wanted another round of drinks (even when glasses were visibly empty), we had to flag him down to ask for another round. It seemed like they couldn't wait to give us our check, so they could get us out. Our reservation was at 7:15 PM and we were there for an hour at most. I don't know that I would go back based on that. I was disappointed because we could have definitely stayed for a few more drinks if they weren't rushing us out the door.

Enjoyed the food. Had a great waiter - Michael - who was doting, and just a real pleasant person. Good veggie options for me.
There was a jazz band and I loved the music. Problem was it was too loud and basically stifled any conversation to be had at dinner. Hard wall, floor and ceiling surfaces make it worse.
Overall a nice neighborhood place with very good food and very pleasant atmosphere. I liked it a lot and would definitely go back.

Great beer selection. Somewhat limited menu. I had a filet special that was a little pricey for the cut (size) and quality. Ordered black and blue and it came out close to medium and no black. But good flavors and excellent Brussels sprout side.
Sat at a high top at the end of a wide aisle servicing the kitchen, probably five feet wide, and despite the width and no crowd at the adjacent bar one food runner managed to bump into my chair nearly every time - started to get ridiculous to the point it was a distraction from would otherwise have been a nice overall experience.

another Outstanding evening at Heritage. this time was dinner. Have done excellent brunch in the past. Service, outstanding, from the greeting at the door, the servers, the bartending and management. Drinks fantastic. Very good Manhattan - excellent bourbon choices. Menu - outstanding share plates - Burrata, Meatballs, Gnocchi. Entrees - I loved the Duck.
Music is top notch - come for drinks, dinner and stay all night
