We were being rushed to order quickly and more. It was very disconcerting and destroyed the meal.
We love 💕 heirloom, feels like home with delicious 😋 food!!!
You always know your meal will be excellent here.
Incredible food! Outstanding service! Amy is the best!
Heirloom Cafe was absolutely incredible. I took my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday and the evening was perfect and memorable. Chris took care of us and we couldn't have been happier with the overall experience. The food and wine was absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was a perfect mix of intimate with a comfortable neighborhood feel. I've been to Heirloom many times and always have a wonderful time. It was my girlfriend's first time and she was blown away.
One of SF’s best restaurants, and certainly the most unheralded. Consistently flavorful food paired with outstanding hospitality. And, not to be forgotten, one of the city’s most interesting wine lists.
Amazing as usual, best restaurant in SF
WE need to limit food bluster. We are not food critics just folks who love food. Brilliant. Top in every category. Hope it will be more helpful
than multiple paragraphs.All enthusiasm is lost in long winded details.
Love this restaurant. Perfect location for romantic dinner, dinner with friends or even a work event. Fantastic wine selection and the service is always perfection.
The food at Heirloom cafe was excellent and the and the daily dinner with wine included is an excellent value. We'll definitely be eating there again.
We had a delicious meal with choices not found at other restaurants. Our palettes were more than pleased. Scrumptious doesn’t even begin to describe. We will remember deliciousness for a long time. Thank you for making the food and restaurant one-of-a-kind.
The expert was fascinating
From the greeting to the seating
Realy felt welcome
The food and wine was superb
I would recommend this restaurant to anybody that wants a great culinary experience
Fantastic food and service made this a special and memorable meal.
We raved about this restaurant in 2016. It has magically survived the challenging SF environment and remains our favorite--for the warm ambience; the sense of community; the fresh, creative, unfussy food; and the magnificent wine list. If you love wine, look up Esther Mobley's paean to this restaurant from the SF Chronicle.
We always enjoy eating at Heirloom. The food is seasonal and deliciously prepared. The staff are always friendly and now recognize us. We shared a salad which they put on separate plates. I had the cioppino which was delicious. He had the gnocchi which were yummy. We shared the scallops, delicious with cauliflower purée and mandarins.
Just a very enjoyable experience
We had a great time. The food was perfect. The ambience was great.
I love this place. It’s all great. Cozy romantic spot with good food and service. What more could I want?
Skip the bread - it was dry. Otherwise solid food. Gnocchi was top notch. Great date night.
Vibrant lively cafe with excellent fresh farm to table produce. Although noisy we found it reasonable to converse. Always love the food and wine selection. A favourite of ours when we visit SF.
This is a great spot for date nights or friends gatherings, with a variety of food options, many wines by the glass options, and excellent service. We were in a bit of a hurry and could get in and out within an hour. All of us agreed we'd be back.
Lovely food and ambiance!
Excellent food and service. Like going into a good friends home for dinner but with better service.
All of the food was delicious and had a lot of complexity. The wine pairings were enjoyed by my guest. The service was friendly and accommodating. Desserts were great!
Heirloom is our favorite place in San Francisco.
One of the better restaurants I have ever been to in SF. Delicious, beautiful, and a wonderful crowd. A gem of a neighborhood spot.
I have never understood why Heirloom Cafe is not jammed every night. It is a gem and quite the value. Menu is full of new ideas, prep excellent, and a very smart floor staff. Go her and you won’t go wrong.
One if my favorite neighborhood spots. Best (off menu) burger around. Great wine list. Great service. Beware - noise level seems to have increased over time - can be challenging to have an intimate conversation.
We absolutely love Heirloom Cafe. Hadn't discovered it until last year and could eat here every night. Fabulous flavors and a killer wine list. And the staff is super fantastic and friendly, which makes the dining experience really special.
I've lived in San Francisco a long time, and there aren't many restaurants I return to a lot. Many seem overpriced, impersonal, or the quality of the food doesn't measure up. Heirloom is a restaurant that is consistently good, comforting, pleasing, and delicious. The flavors are fresh, and the food is simple but artfully combined to maximize the taste of the excellent ingredients. The wine list is well-curated and not overwhelming. Lovely place to share a few plates with a friend.
Stunning, low key decor in a great neighborhood. Our party of 8 took most of the communal table. Although we ourselves were a disorganized mess, our server Ericka kept us on track, drinking and eating well. Salads are not to be missed, and the entrees were each better than the next. The bread is a perfectly warm, pillowy slice of heaven with creamy, lightly salted butter. Do. Not. Miss.
Heirloom never disappoints. Food, service, ambiance are all top notch. Another great meal, will be back soon.
Our waitresses had an interesting attitude. Brought us the wrong bottle of wine and was very upset when we told her it’s the wrong one, *rolls eyes, walks away*. She did not have much knowledge about the food (especially the cheeses: this seems strong, this is young, this is old). Also taught us manners: “I am holding things and I will be back when I have the time and have put this away”.
We were rushed. Second we arrived we were told kitchen closes at 9:30. My reservation was for 9:30. They took my plate when we were still finishing it with bread. We specifically told them we were not finished. Really lame. Don’t take 9:30 reservations is your kitchen closes at 9:30/45
Excellent food and service. We will be coming back!
We like the food especialy the way vegetables are prepared! Going back!
We enjoyed the menu for New Year’s Eve and the Dixie Land Jazz Band. This is a special restaurant.
We have been to Heirloom Cafe many times & once again they did an amazing job. The menu for New Year's Eve was excellent & not as expensive as most places in SF. The wine list is wonderful & it is easy to find something that goes well with your meal & not break the bank. Lastly, the staff at Heirloom is fantastic. They are always warm, friendly, smiling, make great suggestions in regards to wine pairings, & they know the menu. Love this restaurant!
Awesome food and service! Will be back to try more of the menu! :)
This is our second time dining at the Heirloom Cafe and we throughly enjoyed it! It is a neighborhood gem for sure. The food and service are fantastic and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely return.
