So yummy! I did a little dance while I ate my French toast. They took extra care with my brother-in-laws food allergies as well. Best place on here for brunch at a reasonable price.

This was a first visit and it felt like finding a new favorite spot. We went to celebrate a birthday and everything from the food to the service was absolutely fabulous. The ambiance is great, you feel like you're walking into a hidden world! And the creme brulee was amazing.

I’ve been here a couple of times and will definitely be back! The short rib hash is my favorite. It’s the perfect combination of salty, savory, crunchy, tender, and everything is better with a runny egg on it. The French Onion pierogis are fantastic and light; I could’ve eaten a dozen of them. Their mimosas are just they way I like them (and how the should be)— mostly champagne with a hint of fruit juice. Dessert was just as wonderful. Their Salted Caramel Pretzel Bread Pudding is beyond amazing. The main dining areas are beautiful and cozy; I wish I lived closer so i could frequent it more often. I highly recommend trying this place out, if you haven’t already!

Food is great. I have not been here in years. The ambiance is a little lacking. Seems like it needs a new coat of paint or something just to spruce it up and bring it to the level of the great food

Looked forward to trying a new brunch restaurant, particularly one that is so highly rated, but will not be going back or recommending this to a friend. Ordered the mushroom omelette. Omelette came and most of the egg was raw. My friend's scrambled eggs were also raw. Both had very little seasoning. The toast that came with it was literally a piece of bread that had been toasted. No butter, no jam, nothing. The coffee seemed to have some cinnamon aftertaste which is fine but was not advertised as such.

I’m actually quite disappointed. I’ve been coming to Heck’s for years and this was not what I remember. Food came out and it was room temperature, at best. Buns were cold like they were just pulled from the cooler. The service was extremely slow. Never came around to get a second round of drinks until food was practically gone. We had a party of 18 and I have had reservations with this many people previously with no issues. Just super disappointed.

My wife and I had a group of friends and family for a dinner party before we move out of state. Heck’s was very helpful in accommodating seating a large group together and even added some chairs when additional people showed. The service was outstanding for having such and large group and the food was excellent! Would highly recommend Heck’s Ohio City for a large group or small group looking for a good night out.

We were there for brunch on Sunday. We had Bloody Mary’s and Chicken Minestrone Soup which were both delicious. I ordered the Wild things hash which was sitting in a pool of oil. Food should never be prepared with that much fat. My husband ordered the Verdi Steak Hash, also in a pool of oil. “Toast” consisted if a very small slice of a toasted baguette. Most of the breakfast items come with fruit. These both did not. Very disappointing visit. Carrot Cake was very good however, Bread Pudding went in the trash. Our Server was outstanding so we did not complain. She was very attentive to our group and I didn’t have the heart to tell her. Unfortunately, we wont be back. This was our second, mediocre visit. Once, Shame on them, twice-shame on me. Should have gone to Tremont.

My only complaint is that you didn’t have Non Alcoholic beer. I don’t understand why bars and restaurants don’t have this option available. Apparently we got the last 2 at the bar. In this day and age of not driving drunk it should be on hand
