Heirloom - Midway Ratings and Reviews

We have been going to Heirloom for 7+ years taking local and out of state friends and there has never been a miss when it came to the food or service. Matthew and Cameron are constantly looking for ways to out do themselves changing the menu, tweaking the menu with new and innovative recipes. Saturday night was no exception and our friends from Georgia who had been there once before we're totally delighted. There was a Pea salad which was more outrageous than you could imagine. The Duck breast was prepared perfectly (medium rare) with a Cherry sauce that you would kill for (I know you don't end a sentence with a preposition ). The Salmon was beautiful and the Chicken Livers (my wife's favorite), were wonderful as always. Will we go back? Absolutely! As a matter of fact, we already made a reservation while there for my wife's birthday in 3 weeks. Just as an aside, Heirloom is not the only restaurant we eat at (sorry Matthew) as we do eat out often; but if it wasn't a 30+ minute drive each way who knows?

It was an excellent place to celebrate our anniversary. We each had a glass of wine, an appetizer (chilled carrot soup and chicken livers) and were able to split an entree, the tenderloin steak. The food was excellent. The steak was cooked just right for our differing tastes. We enjoyed the privacy of the booth. I wish we could afford to go there often.

Very delicious food and excellent service! Had the yummy Caesar salad with grilled chicken and we ended our meal with their homemade strawberry cheesecake ice cream! I've always loved coming here so much & we'll DEFINITELY be back!!! :-)

Heirloom is always a lovely choice for dinner after a day out in Lexington. The menu changes often with fresh, seasonal ingredients, but I have never been disappointed with my order, whatever the offering. During the last meal, I had the Caesar salad (always a favorite here), and the lamb, which was served with quinoa. The spice used for the lamb had a bit of a kick to it (I personally loved it, but I could drink Tabasco), so that is something to be mindful of when choosing an entree. From beginning to end, service was impeccable. Heirloom remains my favorite low-key, fine dining restaurant in the Bluegrass.

Heirloom is always a gem to visit. From it's eclectic menu items to their amazing staff, they always make the experience memorable. Thanks to Gretchen and Beth for a great lunch and for accommodating my request for a back booth. It was and continues to be a gem in Midway, KY. Please, all my foodies, take the time to experience the wonderful ambience, beautiful wine list, and tasty food at least once in your life. You will be hooked on the fine dining appeal that is so personal yet so up scale.
Fabulous food, cooked to perfection. Best roast lamb in the area! Amazing and complex flavors, definitely the place to go out on a limb and try something new. We always recommend Heirloom to anyone who loves food the joy it always brings

We love Heirloom and know that guests will always feel it is a very special treat. There are many regulars and it is somewhat small so reservations are essential.
Exceeded Expectations Again!
We have enjoyed a handful of meals at this restaurant, and each time, the experience improves. Our last visit was out of this world! Lovely presentation, delicious food, and outstanding wine and service. For the price, this restaurant tops any dining experience I have had in the Lexington area.
great food and experience
Our server was vert attentive and the food was great. I had a chicken liver appetizer and the pan roasted halibut that was excellent. The portion was large and the fish was fresh and done just right. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

Wonderful Dinner at Heirloom
Our dinner was fabulous from appetizer to dessert. We shared the Scallop appetizer. It was outstanding. For dinner I ordered the halibut and my partner the salmon. Both excellent. Dessert was homemade strawberry ice cream. Delicious.

Don't skip dessert, even if you're very full!!!
We celebrated ananniversary at The Heirloom. The service was just right, gracious and attentive yet unhurried. The meal was full of details and pairings of ingredients that were interesting and delightfully appealing to the palate. The wine list had depth. It was a celebration of food and eating that made for a wonderful anniversary. We were impressed by The Heirloom and definitely will return before our next anniversary.
We eat at Heirloom often. This time some of the diners were so loud that had we not been with friends I would have left. There must be some way to get unruly guest to tone it down a bit.

Recently visited Heirloom. The Carrot Orange chilled soup with crème fraise was creamy and refreshing. The Crabcake had great mild flavor and was a good size. I loved the seemingly bottomless container of French fries. Even the catsup was good! Our waiter offered us samples of wine to taste prior to selecting our drinks. I will definitely return to Heirloom for another great meal.

Appetizers, entrees and desserts outstanding assortment of flavors for the mouth to appreciate. All presentations were superb. Best complete meal I've had in years. Just the best.
We frequently visit Heirloom when we have a special occasion. Their food is outstanding. It's honestly the best we've ever had. We always order a meal, wine and dessert is a must. It never disappoints! The uniqueness of the dishes make you come back for more. It was exciting to see a party that was seated behind us start eating and passing the plates around to taste everything since they couldn't believe how amazing everything tasted. They saw us get dessert, as we were seated prior to them, and inquired about what we had ordered. I told them and then said, you will need to save room for dessert for sure!
As always, our experience at Heirloom was the best
We come from Michigan and always make a point to get to Heirloom for a fabulous meal. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, always a great time.
Heirloom is an absolute MUST when dining in Midway
Our group of 3 had lunch at Heirloom on a busy Saturday during Keeneland's 2016 Spring Meet. We truly could not have had a better experience. Our table in a window gave us great views of the afternoon activities in downtown Midway as well as the tastefully decorated interior. Our server was exceptional, her extensive knowledge of the craft beer selection as well as the lunch menu was impressive.....she made all of the lunch entrees sound so delicious, which made our decisions difficult! We chose the fish and chips, the buttermilk-brined fried chicken, and the chicken livers with ricotta ravioli. All were perfectly plated and scrumptious, but the chicken livers were over the top outstanding! Go to Heirloom, you will not be disappointed!!

chicken livers with ravioli lemon cream sauce is a signature dish. It is absolutely to die for. The food here is consistently good. The ambiance is terrific. A real gem.

Maybe the best lamb dish I've had. Smoked quinoa? Outrageous!
Always a great place to eat!
We eat here often - sometimes for a special occasion, sometimes to entertain friends, sometimes just to enjoy a meal out. The food is always delicious and the service is "the best." The chefs pride themselves on creativity; use of fresh, seasonal fruits, vegetables, fish and meats; and amazing desserts. I have never talked to anyone who has had a meal at Heirloom who has been disappointed!
Food and service were outstanding
We were there for a birthday celebration. The day was beautiful so we opted to dine outside. Our server was courteous, well versed on the menu choices and gave us just the right amount of attention. The food was delicious and prepared and served in an elegant manner.

This is an outstanding restaurant. I highly recommend it. Creative and exceptionally prepared menu delivered with friendly, relaxed but professional service.
Central Kentucky winner!
We selected this restaurant as a midpoint between Louisville and Danville for a college sister mini-reunion. An excellent choice. We loved the food and the food choices, drinks were available, desserts were decadently good, and the service was outstanding. With nearby shopping, easy access from the interstate, parking outside the front door, we enjoyed a terrific day. And the restaurant might even let us return!!!
Heirloom is easily one of the best restaurants anywhere. What a gem to have in central Kentucky! The food is creative, beautiful and delicious. I love this place!

Excellent food and service. Surprising to see so many baseball hats and jeans in a high end restaurant
Best food in the state
We are spoiled in Louisville for restaurants. Even so, with my love of Mayan Cafe and Jack Fry's and on and on, I really believe the consistently best food in the state is at Heirloom. Their autumn bisque is perfection. The buttermilk fried chicken, the burger and the fish and fries are the same. Our last visit was Saturday, March 5 for our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable, my manhattan was lovely, food was great and the triple citrus dessert was perfect. We will return again and again and would recommend Heirloom to anyone.
Excellent service with incredible food!
My husband and I were greatly surprised by the fresh ingredients, generous portions, and beautiful presentation of food. The server was helpful in making suggestions, all were delicious! Elegant atmosphere, high back booths made for cozy date night. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Most consistent restaurant I have been to. Fantastic food and one of the best deals around for lunch. The buttermilk brined chicken is amazing!
Great Post Va!entine Dinner
Due to several factors we did not dine out on Valentines Day. However, the Thursday after worked well for us so we finally made the trip to Midway to dine at Heirloom. We were welcomed and seated immediately. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient. For drinks, my wife enjoyed a glass of 1000 Stories Zinfandel, and I tried a generous pour of Basil Hayden bourbon. Our dinners were superb. My wife had the beef fillet and I had an appetizer of lamb meatballs on rice grits that was generous enough to qualify as a main course. Finally, the dessert, a lemon tart topped with fresh raspberries and sauce completed a perfect dinner. We think we have found a new favorite restaurant in the Bluegrass.
