Heritage (inside Whitney Peak Hotel)
Restaurants you may also like
Heritage in Reno, Nevada is located inside the Whitney Peak Hotel. Aside from its beautiful surroundings (both inside and outside of the hotel), this restaurant has become known for its list of craft beers and the appropriately named �huge tots�, which may be big enough to count as an entr�e for many.
The interior at Heritage is a juxtaposition of reclaimed woods, industrial steel and lots of native plants. Similarly, the menu at Heritage is equally diverse. Try the caramelized onion tart. It�s made with fontina cheese, caramelized onion, prosciutto, figs, fresh spinach and balsamic vinegar on top. On the other hand, if you want something more traditional, there�s the chicken picatta amongst many other options.

Awesome place, awesome food, awesome service, I will be back! New Year's Trip from San Francisco....loved the ambiance....you can even take kids (well behaved of course)
Is already in my list!
Food was below average. Meat was very fatty. Service was averarage.
I was surprised to find a modern, chic place in Reno. We stayed in the Whitney Peak Hotel where this place is and had breakfast - which was terrific. Another night we had dinner, which was just OK. While the service is great (slow for this NY'er but that's typical), the food is not seasoned that great. My squash soup tasted like blended squash and that's it. The crab pasta salad was ok. Plenty of crab with a nice, spicy kick but it wasn't tasty. My husband got the whole trout and it was fishy. The food was NOT bad, but it was just "fine." Again, breakfast was great!
We got a group together that we normally do once a year to visit and catch up around the holidays. We chose this location as most of us had yet to try it and wanted to venture out. We were pleasantly surprised by the overall ambiance, decor, food, etc.
We went early so it was pretty dead and felt rather uninviting. However, the hostess and our waitress were both extremely friendly and made us feel much more welcome. The food was great though the French fries tasted very off, as if they were made from fake potatoes so I couldn't eat them. I recommend their mac and cheese dish.
Excellent service. A very industrial feel. A bit noisy. Although the portions were quite small, they were very tasty and presented well. The wine was marked up to high for my taste. Lots of attention to bacon and pig products but of course who doesn't like bacon. I would recommend this restaurant to any foodie.
Rather disappointed, not fine dining. Food was ok, was expecting better.
The service was awesome. Spencer, our waiter, was friendly, funny and couldn't say enough great things about working at Heritage. He definitely made our brunch even that much more enjoyable.
We stayed at the Whitney Peak Hotel, and Heritage is located at the ground floor of the hotel. There are many options to choose from...you can pick several options from their small plate menu (good for sharing), or you can order from the more traditional menu. We ordered from the traditional menu one night and the small plate menu the next night. All of the dishes were nicely presented and very tasty. The portion sizes were just right (in other words, not so big that we left feeling overly full). Our server was Cody, and he was helpful and cheerful. We will definitely go back to Heritage.
Food was horrible
We have dined here before, but this time was less than great. Waitress put in our order so that everything came out at once--salads, entrees, etc. One of us is Vegan and called ahead of time to insure that Vegan options would be available. The waitress didn't offer much other than removing the cheese from one of the appetizers. Once our food arrived, waitress didn't check back to see how things were, although did apologize for not asking if we wanted food in order instead of all at once. Nice enough person, but didn't seem that experienced. Noise level very high and hard to hold a conversation. On a positive note, the food was very good, other than the lack of Vegan options.
Had the Chef's special for 2......seriously one of the best meals my husband and I have had in Reno in a long time. Our first visit but won't be our last. Beautiful decor...visually interesting. Only downside was the noise level and they weren't full by any means. Our server was very charming and attentive. Knew the menu but checked with the kitchen when we had questions.
Ate at Heritage in Reno tonight. Food was decent but not inventive at all, plus we had the worst service, I think McDonalds could do better. Waited over 20 minutes between courses, it amazes me that we waited that long for a cheese course. My 10 year old daughter could have prepared that plate in one minute and served it with a smile. Never coming back. I'm guessing they won't survive.
Not your typical downtown Reno experience. An actual oasis of low key style, imaginative and delicious food carefully prepared and excellent bar service. A harbinger of the Reno to come.
The service was horrible!!! Record setting level of BAD! Rude waitress that forgot half our order without apology. It was so loud we had to yell through dinner. I love the cool ambience but it's like a cafeteria. I ordered the salmon salad bc I wasn't "allowed" to order the halibut unless I did a 3 course prifix. The salmon salad had about a thimble full of salmon shavings. Should be called "essence of salmon". The staff all seemed very immature and untrained - from the manager, to the waitress to the busboy. We took out of town friends and were quiet embarrassed. Last time we go there!
Cocktails, appetizer of roasted mushrooms, double pork chop for him, shrimp and grits for me. From beginning to end the food was excellent and not run of the mill. Flavor, balance, excellent sauces. So good, we went back for brunch the next day.
Second time eating at Heritage. Once again, the food was really fantastic. Always unique, farm to table food. The bacon was amazing, the sausage and crab toast were delicious, and the burger is probably the best in town. They also have a bunch of really tasty, unique cocktails.
Unfortunately, the service really left something to be desired. To start, our cocktails took a long time to come out. This didn't bother us as craft cocktails take time. However, our food came out super quickly after our cocktails (even though we ordered after) and our salads and soups came out AFTER our main courses. This felt very unnatural and didn't give us time to finish our cocktails and order wine (since it all came so quick, we never ordered additional drinks). In addition, the sausage was supposed to come with french fries, which I had to ask twice for. They ended up not coming out until we were all basically done with dinner.
A meal with food this great deserves more thought put into the flow of the meal. The tastes were great, but the entire experience fell short of what it should have been.
OMG the tomato and melon salad with burrito cheese is to die for. Son's mac and cheese was great and burger was fantastic.
The rabbit ragu was not good, sauce to thin and needed salt and pepper. Great service. Skip the baked Nevada , it was stale cake !
Outstanding restaurant that rivals the best that I get back in DC. Outstanding service, drinks, and cuisine. This is a must when visiting Reno that truly another gem you find in Nevada.
Our server was very nice, but seemed a bit overwhelmed.
They were out of water bottles, so we didn't get water until well after we ordered food. No one ever asked me if I wanted anything else to drink. Finalley waved down server and ordered drinks, which took quite a while to come.
Kitchen forgot to put cheese on my cheeseburger.
My wife and mother loved their food. I was unimpressed.
We had a good meal and were impressed with the atmosphere and menu variety. The service was a bit slow due to pre-concert crowd for James McMurtry, but overall a good first impression!
They had a great selection of beers and wines. We split the Heritage burger which was delicious but the fries were very sparse. The salads, however, were very good with a red wine vinaigrette! My husband also had the oysters on the half shell. Our waitress was prompt and cheerful. This was a perfect venue for pre-Cargo concert dinner and drinks!
The menu is quite interesting. If you are brave you can try new things such as "pig face" rotisserie chicken bathed in duck fat. They have a meat platter for $58 dollars which sounds as if they emptied the freezer. It is for sharing! My husband had rabbit pasta dish, a hot dog made from mortadella and potato salad not your mother's. I had pureed peas on bread and a delicious hamburger served with an egg on top and fries, all good! Sparkling water is complimentary. We will return. The only problem we had is that we are all seniors and two of us can't hear very well so the noisy background was difficult for us.
We enjoyed a very nice dinner at the Hertiage, we all had the burger,and it was Ok.
Happy hour a bit different. But good drinks. The salad was very Good and enough to split ( house salad).
The bread was outstanding!!
Gina our waitess was very nice.
Not sure we well try it again.
The hotel is striking and beautifully done, as is the dining room (in a modern, contemporary way). But we went for the food and it was disappointing. The cuisine is advertised as "farm to table", and that might have been true, but when you can't taste the "farm" it falls short of its goal.
The bread and oil was good, but not renewed.
The turnips were heavily over-spiced—mostly a strong curry taste. We couldn't finish them.
The lentils had very vinegary spiced golden beets, but the lentils, which should have had a compensating "bland" taste, were also overly spiced.
The new potatoes with kumquat and olives were good—a different combination for us, but at least you could taste the produce not just the spices.
The venison was excellent.
The sticky pudding was better than anything we tasted in Great Britain.
The excellent Hans Eiffel Riesling was a worthy addition to the wine list.
What could have been a memorable meal with a sparkling waitress was ruined for us by the first two courses. Too much creative spices. Focus more on bringing out the natural goodness of fresh produce and meat.
I like campo so I thought I would try heritage. I was underwhelmed. It was not a busy night so there were no excuses.
Octopus appetizer was very good but came to the table cold. Excellent Caesar salad. My wife and I shared the mixed grill- came to table barely lukewarm and severely under seasoned.
Our service was mediocre too. We waited almost 10 minutes each time we ordered a drink. The server delivered the wrong vegetable side.
Great food. Friendly staff. Service a little slow but acceptable. Will go back again.
Excellent innovative menu for adventurous diners who love gourmet cooking.
Great design and great drinks. The food is just standard for the price. I would go back for drinks, but not likely for dinner
Bright, noisy with an increasingly typical neo-modern industrial atmosphere. Unfortunately we were hoping for something a bit more like Campo, a little subtlety would be nice...... a bit dimmer, more intimate. The food was good, but did not excel or thrill, the service was good, but, again did not impress. No booths just tables on a concrete floor, everything looked fine, but the design is too formulaic for my taste. A bit of originality would be nice.
Horrible service went there twice just in case it was a one off bit it was the same will never be back again
We had gone to Heritage before and really enjoyed the experience. The food was exceptional, and the service very good. We took our kids to celebrate Mother's day early. My daughter had the split chicken at $22, which I thought was really expensive for half of what you can get at Costco for $4.99. My son had the burger, which everyone sampled and felt was very good, but again, pretty expensive for a burger and fries. I had the halibut over asparagus; good, but I went away hungery. My wife (remember it was a Mother's Day celebration) had the shrimp over (cheesy) grits. About 8 small hrimp, which was really unimpressive all together. We might try it again, but not before going somewhere else first. I expected more from Mark Estes.
Very tasty, with lots of esoteric options.
My husband and I had lunch and were fairly well pleased with everything. We both ordered Cheeseburgers as the lunch menu wasn't as extensive as other places where we've eaten lunch. We also ordered a glass of wine and a whiskey. The drinks didn't get to the table for about 15 minutes. A person, whom we perceived to be the manager, was passing by our table, noticed we didn't have food or drinks (except water) and asked if we wanted bread. She brought the bread just as our meals came. The cheeseburger had both bacon as well as a fried egg--interesting. Both cheeseburgers were done to our request. Even though the restaurant wasn't very crowded, the service was a little slow as we've noticed by other reviews. After our food was delivered, we were asked at least six different times by different wait staff if everything was okay. Suggest management change the after delivery concern to before.
I went to this restaurant with a group of friends. The first thing we noticed was the couches to sit and have drinks at (awesome). The bar scene looks very fun also. Pros: good for groups, nice place to have drinks after work. Cons: the menu was a bit "scattered." We didn't realize that each dish were on individual plates and priced individually, so in essence you don't get a meal without ordering two or three dishes, which can add up quickly. Some of the food is served cold, which we didn't realize (asparagus). This would have been okay if the menu had been explained a bit more clearly to us. In the server's defense, he said the menu was new as of the night before (they had changed it up). The other con was the valet parking. There were only two attendants working and it took over 25 minutes to get our vehicle. Others who were in line behind us got their vehicle before we did (made no sense how they determined who to serve when). It's a neat restaurant and I would probably try it again, minus the valet parking (unless they have the system down more).
Food was good but the service was very disappointing. Make sure to request an experienced server. Ours was new and he (Jake) kept asking us to be patient with him as he made mistake after mistake. It's not our responsibility to train a new server.
We went here for an anniversary dinner and had an excellent experience. Started out sitting at the bar for a great happy hour which included $1 oysters (from British Columbia I believe) that were very fresh, sweet/saline and tender. When we were seated we were able to pick our table and chose one that offered some privacy and space . The food emphasized local and was of a fine quality. My venison dish was a wonderful combination of flavors and quite creative. My wife's Alaskan wild halibut was very tasty and well prepared. Our server was really on the mark and gave us attention when needed and appropriate and was able to describe well the food and wine offerings. I liked being able to order decent wines by the glass at reasonable prices...so we didn't have to go with an entire bottle which wouldn't have worked well with our two very different entrees. The noise level was not bad at all, and we were able to converse easily. The decor was pleasing and the bill reasonable for the quality and kinds of experience. I should also mention that they were very gracious about "comping" our desserts in recognition of our anniversary and for having congratulated us on the occasion during our meal. Lastly, even though we were probably 20-30 years older than the other diners there (has a hip vibe as many of Mark Estee's establishments do), we were made to feel very welcome. Definitely will be coming back to enjoy again with friends.
Always enjoy the food here and this time was as expected. Very good and fresh.
Service was off for us. not very busy but waiter took almost 15 minutes to come to our tables Drinks were slow and refills even slower. Food came our so fast that we got our salads before the appetizers came and our dinner came before we had time to eat our salads. Hope they figure thT our before our next visit.
Bit on the pricy side but really good food. I was visiting from Sonoma County and would rank this right up with the best from my area.
