This is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions and have never been disappointed with the food (Always creative ) and service one would expect from a first class restaurant such a the Heirloom. Would highly recommend not only for special occasions but anytime you want a fine dining experience.

Never had a bad experience here!
Gretchen, our server, was lovely.
The food was all good. I had a beet salad and the chicken livers.. very rich but delicious.
A few glasses of wine and one margarita between three of us, all went down well.
The desserts are as creative as the main dishes. I share a blackberry tart with my friend and my husband had an ice cream.
We enjoy the quiet conversation yet busy and contented atmosphere of Heirloom.

We are from out of state, but have eaten at Heirloom for the 5th time now over the last 4 years. Each time the service has been spot on (Thanks to Bo), and the food is the best in the state (talented chefs). We had the duck (juicy, tender, full of amazing flavor), Bison Meatloaf, and Beef tenderloin with brussel sprouts.
We make it a point to come here every time we are even close to midway. Do not pass this farm to table gem up!

Wish I had better things to say - went here with high expectations and was really let down. Ordered drinks, apps, dinner and dessert - had to wait for all drinks, soup arrived luke warm, and dinner was just okay. Very pricey for what we received. With this type of restaurant we expected a more mature crowd and our closest table was a parent with three young children and coloring books. Additionally, the front window table has a floor vent that blows freezing air that the staff tries to mitigate with magazines over the opening. The magazines kept moving that we only discovered each time we were suddenly freezing. Crossing this one off the list.

Heirloom is my favorite restaurant in the Lexington, Kentucky area! The food is always outstanding and special. Bo is my waiter but I enjoy all the waiters. Last night I enjoyed the cheese tray, Mahi, Mahi fish cooked perfectly, A short drive from Lexington and well worth the drive. I love the Heirloom restaurant! What more can I say!!!

The banquette seating was elegant and private, great for quiet conversation. We shared a meatball appetizer, which was good, though the meatballs were a bit soft. I ordered the confit of duck garnished with cherries (perfect!), stewed pears (a tad too spicy for me, but good), amazing bean purée, and fresh greens. It was probably the best duck I have been served in ten years - perfectly cooked so that it practically fell off the bone, and creatively seasoned. My friend had the Irish lamb stew, which I tasted. It was delicious and the lamb was tender, but my friend swooned when he tasted a forkful of my duck with a cherry. We ended sharing an herbed
ice cream - very interesting! The entire experience was delightful - in addition to the excellent duck, great wine and beer, the service was outstanding. It felt like our server was our private butler! Wonderful evening!

St. Patrick's Day lunch with my family was great! The themed cocktails, entrees, desserts, and coffee drinks made the experience enjoyable. My granddaughter (a toddler) was served a side of mashed potatoes and gravy, and enjoyed eating the carrots, potatoes, and rich broth from my Irish Lamb Stew. Henry sat with us for a brief chat and Bo took great care of us.

I truly cannot say enough good things about this exceptional restaurant which once again proved it is the place to bring first timers and not worry. From the three different salads to the Duck, Tenderloin and Shrimp and Grits we were all smiles. The Cheesecake and Apple Crisp desserts topped off an incredible meal.
A special thanks to our server Gretchen.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times and this past time was the only time I have been disappointed. The food and service were excellent, as always, but we were extremely disappointed that Heirloom had allowed for a party of around 12 females, who we believed to be celebrating a bachelorette party, to dine in the center of the restaurant. This wouldn’t have been an issue at all, but they were a rather large group that got extremely loud at times. Such an esteemed restaurant should try to prevent an occurrence like this.

We had dinner at Heirloom the final night of our trip to the area. Our server was excellent: she was friendly, and knowledgeable not only about the menu but the wine list. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant are very pleasing and the menu was diverse. Our salads were delicious and two friends had the shrimp and grits and said it was the best they'd ever had. My husband had the pork and thought it was delicious. Of the four of us, I was the only one who had issues. First, we were seated in a booth, and we should have asked to move . Great for privacy, but there wasn't a lot of room - almost like they skimped on inches (I am tall and thin). Also, it was the most uncomfortable bench I have ever sat on and I just couldn't pinpoint it. I wedged myself in the back corner and found that was fine even though it looked a little weird. And, I had the duck confit which I normally love but it was unfortunately entirely too salty. I decided not to say anything because everyone else enjoyed their meals. I ate just about everything but the duck. It was an unsuccessful evening for me but not for my husband or friends. I would return and request a table over a booth and try something different. It truly was a welcoming and friendly place.
