My husband and I both ordered filets. His was very chewy and while mine was fine, the steak didn’t have much flavor. It needed the sauce that came on it. The restaurant was nice and removed his from the bill, the food was disappointing.

Thanksgiving. A total flop. Service terrible and food ordinary. Wanted it to be special for my family but huge disappointment. Even our server told us to write a review cause of how off they were. Our wine never arrived despite asking twice.

The decor was rustic. We expected something more upscale for Thanksgiving.
The set menu did not offer much variety. No choices for soupand salad and two options for main course. Although the food was good it was overpriced.
The service was adequate but we felt that the server lacked experience and was trying her best.
I am sure that the restaurant might be a good choice for lunch or dinner after a busy day.

Started with one of the best soups I’ve ever had. Sadly, the entree that followed was a disappointment. My meat was significantly overcooked, and when I sent it back I apparently offended the chef. Our waitress was gracious and kind throughout, but it just wasn’t a great experience overall.

Several of us had meals that were overcooked, but overall they were delicious. The service was exceptional. It is a bit pricey. It's a small restaurant, so it was good for intimate conversation. It's decor is very nice. The outside seating is excellent-heated when it's cold. My photo is a split plate of steak and potatoes.

It was an awesome night for my girlfriend and I . They food was great , variety was awesome, and the waitress suggest my an awesome wine to try. They only thing I didn't understand was we were the only ones inside the restaurant, and people were coming in being turned away , I know they probably while looking in the restaurant didn't understand why! There was people in outside patio , but didn't seem overly busy?

The salmon was perfectly cooked with an abundance of seasonal roasted vegetables and the sauce nicely complemented the salmon. The star of the meal was the poached pear in pastry dessert which is big enough for two but we had leftovers. Service was erratic and detracted from the meal.

I had not planned on posting an Open Table review on this restaurant until I started to read the management’s angry and dishonest responses to all reviews that are not 5 stars. Our party of five, which included one professional chef, visited this restaurant on a cool, rainy evening. The restaurant was about 1/3 full yet the service we received was scattered and unimpressive. We wanted to sit outside but it was raining (therefore the patio was closed) so we sat inside. The food was average at best and although we received a lot of “I’m sorry” comments from the staff, there was no 20% discount offered. It’s unfortunate when a business owner is unable to accept constructive criticism.

This might not be a fair review and reflect usual circumstances. There was a private event on the patio that affected our experience inside. There was one server that we could see and one helper. Our server would disappear for a long time so we assumed she had to cover the party outside as well. There were only about 4 to 5 parties dining inside but owner had to step in to help. Cran cakes were good but potato soup was thick like paste. Menu was limited as well. While we wouldn't go back, the parking lot is full when we drive by so others must enjoy it.

Very unhappy this restaurant was rated 4 and half stars in Open Table. I chose the restaurant and was embarrassed in front of my friends. The server was terrible. She was nervous, confused and generally clueless. My trout was not good and cold, the soups were bland and cold. One friend did rave about the lamb and another enjoyed his steak. But all in all the meal was a vast letdown.

Our server was wonderful. If it wasn't for her, this would be a very low rating. I was there to celebrate my wife's bday. We had been to the Heartline 17 years ago when we started dating and I wanted to give her a great dining experience.

Over the years, the place has become a bit dull compared to what it once was. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the greenery.

They only had one bourbon in stock (not one we liked) so we decided on a bottle of wine. They didn't have that either and said they had something similar for the same price. When the bill came it was $48 when it should have been $38. They took $10 off bill when I made the request to do so.

My vegetarian cauliflower steak with chimi churri sauce was very tasty with veggies cooked to perfection, but the sauce tasted nothing like chimi churri and the rice was not cooked properly, it was almost raw.

Instead of delicious crusty bread and butter in our bread basket we got heart shaped biscuits with fig jam that tasted like Bisquick and sweet jelly. For breakfast this would be nice, but not for dinner (in my opinion). It just seemed odd.

My wife's steak was huge and she said it was cooked well and seasoned nicely. The reason for the low rating in value is their prices are too high for what you are getting. In Phoenix I would have paid no more than $80 for everything, but our bill at Heartline was $125 and with tip, $150.

I'm not opposed to paying more for special and unique dining experiences, I just don't think this restaurant provides the same selection and quality as other restaurants in the pricing range.

I hope they read this review and realize these are easy things to fix and loyal customers will keep coming back if they make it a better value.

We went for our Anniversary. Had not been to restaurant for sometime as last visit was disappointing. This evening was not satisfactory as well and although we like to support local businesses, regretfully we probably will not return. Salad was wilted. My husband ordered scallops which were lukewarm. My salmon portion was very small and on the dry side. The restaurant was almost empty so we were surprised at the poor results. Once upon a time this was one of our favorite places to eat 😕
