Gastro Pub
With 2016 James Beard Award finalist chef Daniel Fox at the helm, Heritage Tavern successfully marries American culinary traditions with dashes of global inspiration. Small plate options are delectable, and diners often enjoy trying more than one. Popular choices include the foraged mushroom gnocchi with pine nuts in a creamy brie sauce, salmon char siu with crispy pork belly and roasted squash Thai coconut soup. Larger plate entrées include pan-seared scallops with pickled ginger, chicken confit and cauliflower tortellini, and the hickory nut pesto soba noodles with poached eggs. Heritage Tavern also has an extensive cocktail list to complement its unique culinary offerings, such as the Hunker Down with Milagro silver, allspice dram, blood orange, cranberry and lime. Heritage Tavern also has nightly happy hour specials and live jazz on Wednesdays.

    The food was very mediocre and our service was subpar. They ran out of ketchup which seemed odd and didn't offer much to substitute.

    They honored our reservation without any delay, that was appreciated. Upon being seated, it took 15 minutes to get water. It took 20 minutes to get our first cups of coffee which were only offered to be refilled once during our 95 minute stay. I ordered a cocktail and it took almost 25 minutes to arrive from seating and it was delivered by a bartender who wandered around the dining room a bit before finding me. Our order was not taken until well after 35 minutes from our seating. Given the delays already experienced, we specifically asked that the "appetizers" (ham/cinammon roll & donuts) be brought out before the meals. Of course they came out at the same time, over an hour after being seated. One of our party ordered a side of rosti potatoes with her egg sandwich. It never arrived. The bill was finally brought out about 95 minutes after being seated. We never had follow up to our entrees to check satisfaction or ask if we wanted desert, more cocktails, etc. We were frustrated enough that we told the waiter when he brought the bill that he had to take our cards right then and there, which fortunately he did. The dining room was only 2/3 full. There was a large party on the other side, but it wasn't oppressively large. There was no sense of urgency or organization to our waiter's service methods, I often saw him backtrack and change directions. I am all for a leisurely brunch. If we had been attended to during the time it would have been better, but waiting over an hour for food with an empty coffee cup and no more mimosa was no fun. We would have ordered more food and libations to make it a leisurely brunch experience, but we were never asked. With that said, the food was fresh, delicious, inventive and amazing. The service soiled it and upset others in the party more than me. I may go back; they won't.

    I ordered the scallops and they were not done correctly and they were very salty. I should have said something, but I did not want to be perceived as the complainer in our group so I said nothing. It was kind of difficult eating my dish, which I should have really sent back.

    I was at Heritage with 3 colleagues for a business dinner. The food was wonderful and was served in a relaxed and competent fashion. We asked our server for recommendations on the drinks as well as the food. All of her suggestions were spot on. I loved the bouillabaisse that I ordered. While the whole meal was excellent from beginning to end, the desserts were the most amazing. We had the citrus meringue and the chocolate mousse cake. Can't wait to have a reason to go back.

    The Wagyu Beef Skirt Steak Frites & Eggs is amazing. Not only are the steak and frites delicious but the eggs are a special treat: They poach them, then roll them in crumbs (or panko?) and lightly fry them. The service here is fantastic!

    A fantastic dining experience all around. Creative cocktails, food was fantastic, and service was great. Especially liked the tuna, pork belly, and seared fois gras appetizer! Highlight of our visit to Madison.
