Thanks Bo for a perfect afternoon in the sunny table. We celebrated 2 big birthdays and talked for hours. We caught up and remembered that slowing down with kind service is all about a day out and break from our busy lives. Thanks Heirloom for a delicious lunch with special service.

This review is based on the lunch service. The offerings were basic, at best. Service was fair, but not great. Prices were a little high for what was available. Love the dinner service, but probably won’t be back for lunch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Heirloom. We were celebrating the birthday of my husband, and it was his first choice restaurant. The food presentation is beautiful and the flavor is even better. I had the crab cake sandwich with jalapeno slaw. The crab cake was the perfect consistency and the slaw was divine. We shared a pecan tart and it was spectacular, especially the flaky crust. We could not have been more pleased with the lunch, and the price of our meal was very reasonable. We had 2 cocktails, 1 salad, 1 soup, 2 entrees, 2 coffees, and 1 desert and it all came in under 80.00, not including the tip. We love Heirloom.

Heirloom is our favorite restaurant. Eating here is always an experience, and one that never disappoints. The food's level of flavor is simply amazing. No matter how full you are after your main course, you must try a dessert!

My husband’s birthday. We were seated next to the bar, which made for increased noise. The drinks are great here, and that night their bottled wine was on sale for 50% off. The food never disappoints! We could have shared the filet mignon, but I like medium rare, and he likes medium well. Wonderful seasonal menu, I can also recommend the eggplant tortellini.

We enjoyed our rack of lamb and steak thoroughly -- both were delicious. The fresh oysters were particularly plump and tasty. And the recommended wines set off our dinner well. The service was excellent too! A fine Valentine's dinner.

Heirloom is a little sparkling gem of a restaurant just minutes from Lexington and Georgetown. Delicious meal as usual from the best Caesar salad I have ever eaten to the coconut lime sorbet. I had the filet which was tender and delicious. It was served with Okinawa sweet potatoes that are grown in Hawaii. Delightfully different and enjoyable. My husband had the lamb and it must have been good since he cleaned his plate.

We had a reservation to celebrate Valentine's Day. Everything was great until we got to dessert. We ordered ice cream because we had a play to attend and were somewhat in a hurry. After 30 minutes, we were still waiting on the ice cream. We reminded waitress we had somewhere we needed to be. We had already paid our bill which was over $100. After waiting some more, we finally stood up and put on our coats to leave. The waitress at this point came over and apologized and said "kitchen was backed up" and she would remove dessert charge from bill. The charge, however, was not removed when we checked out bank card debit. No manager ever came over to apologize. Probably will not be back or recommend after this experience.

Heirloom is a great little restaurant out of the mainstream in Midway. The food was as good as anything you could find in Napa. It's pricey, but well worth it.

We visited Heirloom based on a recommendation from a friend. We were extremely disappointed for several reasons. First of all, our server was not attentive and seemed impatient with questions we asked (we had to even ask for our waters to be refilled). Secondly, My husband and I both had the salmon dish and we were very disappointed. I substituted a sweet potato instead of rice and it was very small (only 1/2) and over cooked. The Beet salad was good but very very sparse on the greens. After a long wait, we had to ask someone if we could get our checks. Given the price of our meal......we sincerely expected more from this restaurant!!!

We ate here before the UK game on Saturday because it’s hard to eat in Lexington before any ballgame. 😊
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. The menu changes slightly every time we come, but the food is consistently top notch.

The food was wonderful as usual, but the price, which was not listed, was astronomical. I had budgeted $150.00 plus tip for this meal, but $216.00 plus tip was just too high. As an everyday person who is not rich, this was just over priced. I love this place but will not be able to eat there anymore. 😢
