Heyday Ratings and Reviews
Overpriced. Inattentive service. Ordered the monkfish which arrived cool and rubbery. Waiter disappeared from our table and the room for prolonged periods of time. No itemized bill. Felt we were overcharged. Seems to be quite of bit of hype for this restaurant that felt very undeserved at our visit. Will not be back.
Went to Heydey to celebrate a friend's birthday and it was fabulous! It just so happened that I made the reservation for a Tuesday, and right now through the end of 2017 they have a Tuesday night special with a free champagne tasting and all bottles of champagne are at restaurant cost, what could be more perfect for a special event or date night?! The food and service was excellent, however, I would say that the portions of individual dishes are very, very small, and very expensive for the size. You definitely have to order at least two items to make a meal if you are eating 'a la cart', or they also have an option for a tasting menu (4 courses). This definitely more of a meat-eaters establishment, they only had 2-3 vegetarian dishes at the time (a small pear salad, a small beet salad, and a poached duck egg with cabbage and mushrooms), and I don't believe they had an vegan options, just an FYI! If you have any dietary restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, unsure about GF, nut allergies, or other restrictions), this might not be the place for you, although I managed, but if you eat meat and are looking for a great fine dining spot for a special occasions, Heydey is a foodie dream, my meat eating friends all seemed very pleased with their choices! The pear and beet salads were great, although the duck egg and cabbage was pretty bland and the cabbage was difficult to cut. The banana split dessert was also great and they brought our birthday girl a beautiful birthday macaroon with a little birthday candle, which was really special. <3
Just my husband and me taking our daughter out for her birthday. The food is outstanding - (better than Elske in Chicago - where I last had dinner with my daughter.)
We each had the four course menu. The food was perfect, (including the extra goodies from the chef) the service attentive and well timed. Cannot say enough great things about this place.
I believe the menu is meant to offer interesting and unusual combinations. In my opinion, it goes too far, and the limited number of choices made it difficult for the three of us to find food we liked. The service was just slightly less than timely and attentive. And while the ambiance was interesting, it was cold in the restaurant. Not a bad restaurant and I'm sure many will love it here, just a caution to look carefully at the menu before you go, as this wasn't a cheap meal either.
Heyday is amongst the best in Minneapolis. From the rustic chic setting, warm environs and wonderful staff, Heyday welcomes the moment you step in the door. Our table was late to be sat as they were busy, and the could not have been more accommodating to keeping our party
satisfied whilst we waited. They made it know our table had paid the bill and was just lingering - they cared enough to not kick that table out, and to find a way to make us happy as well.
Of course, the food is why we go to Heyday. And there are some serious skills are on demonstration from the kitchen. I won't wax poetically here as the the specifics, but I will say
that there is a lot going on in the kitchen to enjoy and to trust the instincts of their staff to guide you along.
Prices are on the high side, but given the skills involved in each dish, it is well worth it when you are looking for a proper, adult night out.
Well done, guys.
Want to eat some very clever food and ingest some creative adult beverages? Check out Heyday located on Lyndale. Seasonal cuisine that is treated with reverence by the chefs. Knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff who will take time to assist you in your choices. Make a rez and saddle up for a foodie adventure.
An absolutely amazing experience at Heyday! Service was impeccable, you can absolutely tell that they go through a lot of training. Food was a work of art! This is my new favorite and go to place in Minneapolis. Also, saw they have a HH menu in the bar that looks delicious, can't wait to go back and try it.
Food was way too slow considering the place was nearly empty. Two of us had a total of one cocktail and total price for the evening was $191 and I was still hoping for a McDonalds on the way home. There were some good flavors but prices were out of line for portion size and it was WAY too slow.
I did not enjoy the food at Heyday and neither did my two friends who joined me. The food just didn't taste very good. It ranged from boring to just plain bad. This included the appetizers and the entree's. For those reasons I would not return. However, they have great wine, very friendly staff and the service was great. I just wish we hadn't paid so much for bad food. We went to a different restaurant for dessert because we figured it wasn't worth the risk at Heyday. I can't imagine they will stay open too much longer. I can't remember paying so much for terrible food in my life. And, I hate to say all of the above. Would much rather be writing a positive review.
Must have been some issues with the kitchen and bar. Cocktail order took forever, but only contained a mimosa and one other cocktail. Food also took forever and shrimp/grits came out cold, biscuits and gravy had a thin skin of gravy, but not nearly enough to sop up. Had to ask for more.
To waiter's credit, he fired a quick replacement for shrimp/grits and it came out stat and was great. Brought extra gravy. It just seemed very unfocused and organized overall. Food value for price - not that day.
Recommended by Google search for Best Restaurants in Minneapolis. Needed a later dinner spot. Visiting daughter at the U. Wow! The menu is inventive and the flavor combinations just outstanding. You can do 4 course prefixe or pick and choose. The wine pairings were spot on as well. I've never had lamb so flavorful. Our server was very personabe and knowledgeable. We were in culinary heaven and will be back again.
Really exciting, delicious menu. We opted for the four course tasting menu with beverage option. Other reviewers cautioned that the food was salty; it did walk the line, but stayed on the right side. Most of the wines were unremarkable, but there were a couple of standouts. Service was extremely slow, but the wait staff was pleasant. We sat at the table for a long time before our waiter finally approached, and we waited a long time between courses. Wait staff spent a lot of time explaining the "administrative fee" policy (aka added tip), and it saddened me that patrons oppose this reasonable practice. All in all, a really enjoyable night.
WAY too expensive! This restaurant had only 2 $'s on Open Table so I assumed it was reasonable. For 2 people who only had a total of 2 beers and 1 glass of wine, we dropped $170. Now I have no problem spending that much on dinner for a special occasion but the food needs to be really good. This food was simply ok. Some of the courses were really good and the bread was phenomenal, but for the most part it was nothing special. If I spent $80 I would have been perfectly satisfied, but not good enough for the cost.
We had an awesome server and appreciate the management ‘s commitment to a ‘living wage’ for employees. The food was creative and delicious. As a group of three women we found it plenty to share a 4-course with a few additions including sides for the table. Awesome homemade bread!
I wanted to love Heyday, I really did. There were some standouts like the servers, the lamb and the house made butter (house made butter, where have you been all my life?). There were major disappointments like the gruyere tart with honeycomb, the liver pate tart with onion jam and the unevenness of the timing on the courses being served (fast on some, really slow on others). In the end we felt that the chefs were trying too hard and many of the dishes felt forced. For what we spent, we expected better.
Took over two hours and fifteen minutes. Over-priced. Highly disappointed based upon previous reviews. Other similarly priced local restaurants provide a more enjoyable experience. I don’t normally write reviews, but this experience left me feeling like I was kicked and someone stole my wallet.
