We enjoyed breakfast twice in this lovely restaurant. Service was good, except the morning we waited for a table for a few minutes as no host at the entry and when they did show up they answered the phone and completely ignored us so we sat ourselves. Food was delicious but not hot when it arrived at table. Trends to... More

I enjoyed a lovely breakfast at Heirloom and had the best scone ever. I bake a variety of scones often and yet I have never had a scone with such great texture as the one at Heirloom. I enjoyed the fact that I could mix and match side orders and when I asked for a soft boiled egg that was... More

We stopped by on the way to an appointment. We knew it was restaurant week and fortunately they were participating. My wife had the smoked salmon nicoise and loved it. I did the restaurant week choices starting with a salad (breakfast radish, lemon, olive oil & pecorino), main was the rigatoni caprino (lemon, garlic, spinach, hazelnuts & goat cheese), and... More

I've always enjoyed Heirloom's ambiance, service, wonderful waitstaff and great American cuisine. A friend and I dined there earlier this week; we were so very pleased with everything, He ordered a salad wedge complemented by salmon steak. I ordered the chicken cutlet platter topped with arugula, pear and a mustard dressing. We spent a leisurely lunch enjoying each other's company... More

We had dinner at Heirloom in New Haven, adjacent to the Yale campus. The restaurant is located in the Study Hotel. It is chic and modern in style with lots of glass and metal furnishings. The restaurant was not busy when we were there. Our first surprise was the extremely slow service. Every step took very long from first bringing... More

Buzzy atmosphere. Good service. Good wine list. Clams to start a bit peculiar but a couple of pasta dishes were terrific.

What a revelation. Until last week, I never got the point of brunches--at most places the menu is predictable, and most of the offerings you could easily make at home. After getting a chilly reception in another New Haven eatery, we wandered into Heirloom at Sunday brunchtime and were quickly feasting on beautiful presentations of fresh fruits, eggs, meats and...
