It’s always a pleasure to dine here! For lunch or dinner. The food is delicious and the servers are attentive. The mussels, beet salad and chocolate mousse are “musts” if you visit

Been wanting to try this restaurant for a while now. Food was great, I had beef bourginon and my mother had chicken, both very good. Was very quiet the night we were there so hope to return on a livelier night. They seem to have a regular clientele and it is BYOB. Will definitely return

We wanted a special place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary quietly, gently and in a very special way. We found it at the Blue Heron.

Dining room was loud due to a special event going on. Happy for the people celebrating but it wasn’t what we had been hoping for. Food and service was terrific though — we would try again on another night.

I’ve had dinner several times at the restaurant, but this last time was very disappointing. Food was cold and tasted a day old.

So sad! We travel to York at least once a year and have always dined at Blue Heron. This visit was so different. The restaurant no longer serves alcohol, but encourages patrons to bring their own. Servers were prompt and helpful, but the food, once wonderful, was mediocre at best. We will not return.

Was in town for bussiness, came across this gem. The service and food was amazing. My husband ordered the last order of lamb for the day and it was spectacular.

Great food and ambiance. I felt like I was in the south of France. Best lamb chops around.

A delicious meal was had by all. The lamb stew special was outstanding, and the service was excellent.

As on previous occasions the accumulated noise level from other diners was very high making it difficult to have a conversation with my own dinner partner.

We had an excellent dinner here. It was a Monday, so very empty, but we had great service and were checked on often. We had baked Brie, calamari, cream of crab soup (excellent), beef chili, steak su poivre (the peppercorn sauce was incredible) and the chicken and shrimp. The food was great, the chef/owner was on hand an attentive, and we had a great anniversary dinner. It is BYOB, so something to remember.

I rated the food a 3, but can't speak to whether that's accurate or not because I didn't get to taste the food. After waiting for 5 minutes at the vacant host stand before someone acknowledged us and sat us, we proceeded to wait upwards of 20 more minutes for a server - any server - to even take a drink order. A server brought us water shortly after we were seated and told us she would be right with us, and a busser brought us bread. We had no interaction with anyone after that, even when we got up and walked out of the restaurant. No one seemed to notice or care.

We went down the street to The Paddock and it was a night and day difference. We won't visit Blue Heron again.

Dear Sir or Madame: Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I understand how you feel. Saturday was indeed busy. We apologize for not providing you with proper service. We have been serving York county for over 30 years and this type of event thankfully never happens. If you would like to accept some type of compensation, if you would decide to come back, we would be glad to do so. Sorry about any inconvenience. Sincerely

Great Restaurant. I have been there at least 5 times over the last couple of years. I do trade shows in the area every spring and always take sales managers and customers to the Blue Heron. They also have great service.

Excellent food and service. Keep in mind they have no liquor license. Hostess called to remind us. We were not aware of this and appreciated the call! We planned accordingly. Dining room décor is slightly dated.
