The service was a bit stilted, the quality of the food was adequate the flavor was lacking and overall experience disappointing
Beautiful dining experience. The desserts are especially lovely. I'd love to see Herons expand the vegetarian options for entrees. Perhaps add a veggie sandwich?
The service was outstanding
Not just a great meal, but an lovely experience with excellent ambiance and top notch service. One of the more unique places to dine in the Triangle area.
Lovely meal. Did not care for the flavored iced tea.
This is a total surprise to me. I was wondering why I did not find such a nice restaurant earlier. The restaurant is located within the hotel, which has displays of huge porcelain jars and vases. We had four course tasting menu. The food is beautifully presented and the plates and containers are beautifully selected. The service is great. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Chef also gives customers complimentary food between courses. The dining experience is wonderful, and even better than that in some Michelin star restaurants. This restaurant deserves a Michelin star or two stars. This restaurant is definitely a choice for foodie. I will dine in this restaurant in the future to try different meals.
Dinner at Herons is a five star event from the moment that you sit down until you leave the restaurant. We chose the four course menu and it was truly an experience. It wasn't just "dinner". It went above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. The food selection, preparation and presentation was phenomenal. The service was the best of the best. The staff was so well prepared and served our food with such care and professionalism that we all felt that nothing could ever top our evening at Herons. I highly recommend Herons for dinner. You will not be disappointed. We can't wait to return!
Delicious food and stellar service!
Ambience and vibe of herons was amazing. Wonderful brunch experience and food was delicious.
Phenomenal. Delicious. Top notch service. Classic Herons. 🙌🏽✅👋🏼
A friend and I went to celebrate our birthdays, which are just a week apart. We wanted a special experience because these are milestone birthdays this year and Heron's surely delivered. The food was amazing, and the service was impeccable. If you have a special event to celebrate, this is the place to go for a truly memorable experience.
Celebrating my daughters birthday. The staff was amazing and I highly recommend the wine pairing.
Tory was great describing the wines and the story behind them.
Best meal of my life. I loved every minute and every bite. THANK YOU!
Wonderful Birthday lunch with friends. I love coming here! This is always a treat.
The food was fabulous...each dish was a work of art
My server Cameron was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience. He never rushed me or made me feel like I was burdening him - I was there to relax (which is rare :)) and that is what I did. Food was phenomenal and the entire experience was top notch. Thank you Heron’s for another fantastic dining experience!
We had a great time. The food was yummy. They brought small extras like appetizers that were especially delicious. Our waiter was excellent. I will definitely do lunch there again.
Everything was top notch.
Weekend brunch is awesome. Very attentive wait staff, excellent food. It was a great experience.
Great place. We could not get a reservation for dinner so we took one for lunch. It’s not quite as extravagant as dinner but great nonetheless.
Very tasty. Impeccable presentation and service.
We’re looking forward to next time already!
Excellent food and excellent service! You can tell that the restaurant has high standards for both, so I would say it is a sure thing. I had the beef tenderloin, and it was outstanding!
Beautiful atmosphere, great food, wonderful property.
Amazing fine dining experience the service & food were exceptional.
