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.
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.
We had a 7:30pm reservation and did not get our first drink until almost 45minutes later. We didn't get our order taken until after that. The food was paced good after that except for dessert, which we waited about 15 minutes for after they cleared our last course. The food was very good, but on a work night we did not want to be there for 3 1/2 hours. I would not go during the week again.
Went to Heyday for brunch for my wife's birthday. 9 of us ranging in age from 19 months to 68 years. It was a perfect celebration. The service, the food and the atmosphere were wonderful. I can't think of anything they could have improved on.
While a lovely atmosphere, I don't feel the Sunday brunch menu was worth it's price. I paid $14 for a single slice of sourdough toast topped with greens, tomatoes, and bacon. No side dish. The service was impeccable and the food was certainly tasty, but there are plenty of other restaurants in the metro area with equally or more delicious dishes at a more affordable price.
We visited for a Sunday brunch and were disappointed. Everyone (except for the guy with the cinnamon bun) agreed that their food was WAY oversalted. Then the bill arrived with a 15% "administrative fee" added (not a tip). Seriously? If you just increased the price of each dish by 15% it would have had the same result, but wouldn't have ground my gears. The food still was disappointing, but that admin fee was the last straw. I won't be going back, there are plenty of great restaurants around for foodies.
Having dined here earlier in the month for brunch, I absolutely had to return to enjoy another brunch. As before the experience was exceptional with the courteous service being exemplary. The branzino toast and cauliflower stosi where just as wonderful as I remembered it. "The Snowbird" breakfast cocktail was a perfect compliment and was prepared perfectly. The agua fresca, cava, crème de violette ingredients were well balanced and served as a refreshing Sunday brunch elixir. Heyday is an absolute must for an "foodie". Don't let the unassuming location and casual atmosphere lead to any culinary presumptions. Heyday is a definite culinary destination with food that is executed at a high level. I will be returning for Heyday's evening dinner experience shortly and fully expect the same quality of experience.
Heyday is a great gem in our city. Jim's deeply thoughtful and artistic cuisine never fails to amaze. All around us, we enjoyed hearing people oooh and ahhh over their first bites. He reveals flavors in such unexpected and poetic ways. And, to top it all off, the staff is top notch and the space is quiet and elegant. If you're looking for a special evening, this is this place.
