Service was exceptional! It was very disappointing to select a steakhouse and have baked and mashed potatoes as well as creamed spinach unavailable on Father’s Day weekend at 1 pm! Those side dishes are an integral part of a steak dinner experience- but everything that was available was well prepared and tasty!

Steak was pretty good, could have been bigger for the price I paid. Salmon was okay, could have been better quality-tasting!

Absolutely lovely experience as always, start to finish. Dined solo at the bar and was taken well care of by Andrea, who was very kind, efficient, offered suggestions. Great vibrant cocktails. Nice wine selection. A heartfelt care in service and attention to detail. Exquisite food in taste and presentation. Enjoyed (an understatement) the scallop crudo and crab asparagus salad, house bread and butters. Was welcomed in friendly bar conversation which led to a share in the warm fresh churro for a dessert bite. Overall wonderful experience and can’t wait to return to try more dishes… and likely revisit that crudo (Still thinking about that one). Heirloom is a favorite destination which never disappoints and always keeps it fresh. Thank you! ~Colleen 💛🥂💫

Our waiter David was excellent- great recommendations! Spicy martini he recommended was great. Halibut entree was excellent. Pork Osso Bucco with risotto was a healthy serving, but the dandelion greens were a bit much. Very chewy and bitter. Would be happy to return!

Service and food were delicious. Kitchen timing was off as we had to wait a significant time between appetizers/salad curses and our entree.

Diner was delightful. Mama's shrimp was delicious. Two of us had the Catch of the day Halibut it was flakey moist and cooked just right. Another had Freddy's Seafood and another had better than Chesapeake The only complaint the cream of crab soup wasn't hot. It should have been sent back the person declined all other foods were hot .It was an enjoyable evening!
