The Heritage is one of the many classroom/laboratory facilities operated by the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College. The restaurant is staffed by students in the culinary programs and is under the direct supervision of Chef and Dining Room Professors.

During lunch, your meal will be prepared and served by first year students. The meals represent International Cuisine with modern and classical touches. In the evening, The Heritage reopens to feature a relaxed atmosphere, more Continental Cuisine, and our second year students will serve and prepare your meal.

The Secchia Institute for Culinary Education restaurants and kitchens are classroom settings. We take pride in them. Our students prepare our meals daily with the finest seasonally available ingredients including freshly baked artisan bread.

OpenTable Diner (Grand Rapids)

This was our first time here. We’ve been wanting to try this place out for over a year. We were there celebrating our anniversary and my mother’s birthday. The food was really good. A couple of mishaps (steak being over cooked and running out of some desserts) but they were able to resolve those things. We can’t say enough about the outstanding service and we had a wonderful time as well. We will certainly be coming back.

Everyone we interacted with was so real....down to earth and informative on their careers and ambitions. The mid length blonde manager was SIMPLY OUTSTANDING!!! Her customer focus was rich, her communication and followup were clear, genuine and thorough. She made us feel like family. Loved loved the learning atmosphere and the (minor)mistakes and slightly nervous moments. I believe it, made us feel comfortable and human. While upscale, it was not stuffy or too starchy formal....it was a delight to be with my wife in your establishment. Thank you thank you. Anthony and Jill

Price Fixe Dinner Venue ( Amuse-Bouche, first course, main course and dessert)
Excellent and uniquely varied selections for all courses; staff was attentive and enjoyable; all food preparation was of highest quality and presentation.
A limited by very adequate wine selection.
The venue was very comfortable with an enjoyable view of the city in a very quiet atmosphere.

Although this is a learning site, the students do a great job. Chef’s Schultz and Gendler always make sure we have a positive experience. The food is amazing and the portions are just right.

Fancy dinning at a more affordable price since it's a teaching restaurant. Always good food and pleasant experience.

What a refreshing change to gourmet dining. Students are learning but well trained and attentive. Food is artfully presented and delicious. Pour over coffee a special treat and desserts are a must have!!! Don’t miss this rare gem of a dining experience for lunch or dinner
