    I hadn’t been to Heirloom in a few years, and I must say I was disappointed with the food this one time, compared with my previous experiences. The crab pasta dish was overly garlicky and completely destroyed the complexity of a very nice French Malbec I had picked to accompany it. Service was outstanding, courteous and attentive. A little pricey for the quality of the culinary experience:

    The service was good. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Unfortunately my food was cold, I ordered the crab fettuccine. The waiter gladly took it back. When they brought my dish back out it was warm on one side and cold on the other. It seemed like it was microwaved. Other than that experience with my dish, my husband’s entree was good and the drinks were ok.

    Heirloom was very delicious and the service was great. Everything was very tasty, but the plating could have been a bit more elevated. The apple doughnuts were divine! Overall, I had a great experience here for my DPW meal no. 8.

    Came back for the first time since they shut down during the pandemic, and it was very disappointing. The cheese plate was small and felt like it was prepped ahead of time and left in the walk-in, and the entrees were just average. I’m hoping they’ve just got to shake the rust off, but overall it was lackluster.

    It seems from the ambiance that this once was a good restaurant that was maybe impacted by the current world situation but it was such an aggressive let down I am really Upset it cost so much we feel swindled. Went there to celebrate a birthday for the “farm to table” aspect of it, and for the prices we expected food to be well prepared with good ingredients at the very least which it wasn’t. Received stale, unsalted, “heirloom” French fries with ketchup and baked ricotta with toasted stale bread for the apps which we should have just left after that but the description of main menu items looked more promising?? A $36 fatty steak wasn’t hot enough to melt the butter on top Served with burnt, charcoaled broccoli that was the “seasonal vegetable” which was then replaced with unseasoned steamed to actively disintegrating broccoli. Crab pasta did not come as described on menu cheap substitutions real bummer and didn’t taste like much. Maybe 4 other tables occupied but service was dragging so, they brought out another baked ricotta on the house and we asked if it was bc the food was so slow coming out?? “No, no, just cause” Only one person finished their meals, we were offered dessert on the house because they, “felt bad” and we honestly didn’t want to be there or eat anything else there and just wanted to pay and leave. It was a very awkward experience and we were really bummed that we wasted money there.

    Our waiter was so amazing! I wish I had asked his name. It was SO busy when we were there with our party of 6 and there were numerous large parties as well. As is the case these days…they were understaffed but he managed to stay cool and calm throughout and handled some special requests without a single problem. I have found these days that one really has to be patient with dining out and the longer times that it may take to get speciality cocktails and orders taken. As long as the food is good (which is was!)and the server is helpful and kind then I don’t mind waiting a bit longer than usual.

    Was expecting a classy restaurant from the pictures but it was actually quite the casual atmosphere, some patrons wearing t-shirts. Service was very slow even though it was not busy at all. Roast chicken was delicious though.

    Omg never again!! Services was sooooo slow, and I was going to give them the benefit of the doubt because I know places are understaffed and whatnot but what happened there is COMPLETELY unacceptable. My boyfriend went to the men’s bathroom, and as he’s using the urinal, two guys, EMPLOYEES!!!! walk out of the stall. How did he know they were employees? They were wearing aprons and the waiters outfit. I don’t care what people do in their free time at home, not judging, but this was totally unacceptable at a restaurant. Food was mediocre and we definitely lost our appetites after hearing that story from him. Safe to say, we won’t be back, ever.

    I am not sure how they have received an average of 4.5 stars because it was not a 4.5 star experience. From the food to the service it was lacking. It Might’ve been because it was a slow Sunday and when it’s slow people tend to naturally slow down but it was unimpressive experience I would not go back back

    Food and service always great. Not sure what the point of notifying the staff of a birthday on this app is because there was never a happy birthday or even throw a candle on top the dessert we ordered would have been nice. Other then that it was delicious as usual.

    Service extraordinarily slow, from the moment we arrived (waited at host station for ~10 minutes). After sitting, no waiter for ~10 min. Although he was very gracious, polite, and nice, the waiter did not keep things moving. My steak was overcooked but still tasty. Took about 25 min for dessert to arrive after ordering. Restaurant was not busy that night. I can see this place being really good under certain conditions; they need to tighten things up.

    I would recommend with a caveat. The food was very good. The place was nice for lunch, bright and airy with comfortable decor. The service, however, was painfully slow. It took nearly an hour for our lunch to arrive and we had sandwiches. After close to another hour, we had to flag someone down for a check.

    We have made several visits to Heirloom and like it very much. The space is lovely, the service is good, the menu choices are excellent, and the value for this level of quality is outstanding. Our recent Sunday brunch was no exception. Our party of 4 was engaged in conversation and the waitperson was respectful until we signaled we could order. She was prompt and efficient. Our food was great. The Carmel Apple Doughnut appetizer was a total home run. Crazy tasty! Three of the four had Benedict options and each was enthusiastic about the food. The fresh biscuit instead of an English muffin was great. My burger was prepared perfectly to order. The cost for four without alcohol was a very reasonable $107 (without tip) for an excellent dining experience. The only downside was not being offered dessert. We were presented with the check before asking which we took as a signal we overstayed our welcome. That was uncharacteristic for me and not a good impression. Still, overall, an outstanding experience and we'll be back.

    Have been to breakfast/brunch and loved the food, so I was excited to try supper. Supper was alright, service was slow (as it was the last time I went in for breakfast). Bouillabaisse was good, but Shell & Bones has a bouillabaisse that’s a bit better. Kale salad with “sour” cherry vinaigrette was pretty sweet and the sweetness built with each bite. Definitely wouldn’t have ordered if I realized how sweet it was. Didn’t even look at the dessert menu because I was afraid if a kale salad was moderately sugary and sweet that an actual dessert would be unbearably saccharine.
