    The cocktails are fantastic, especially if you like sweet. Everything we ordered was great, the the pork belly appetizer was a standout.

    Great atmosphere. Great wine selection. All the food we had was quite good - but the star was the chocolate bar dessert!

    Pork fries were amazing! The Duck was so tasty, with the apple butter, yum yum! Highly recommend dessert to top off the night. The lemon meringue and apple butter cake... Amazing.

    Head over to Heritage and defrost with the wintery "Business in the Front/Party in the Back cocktail"--laced with alluring, spiced notes that are welcome all the way to spring.

    You have not eaten spaghetti and meatballs until you eat it here! For Brunch, the pancakes are magical!

    It was honestly the best salmon I've had at a restaurant. The presentation of all the food was beautiful, but I'm a foodie. The most important thing is always the taste.

    Sat at the bar for dinner. Great service from the bartender Mattias. Very personable and made me a one of a kind drink - "dont mess with Texas" It was delicious! Thanks Mattias! We'll be back for sure

    One of the young turks of the Richmond restaurant scene, Heritage hits the trifecta with excellent food, cocktail program and top-notch hospitality.

    The Bacon, Egg, and Cheese has all the classic breakfast sandwich flavors in a dinner medium plate: smokey tomato, slow-cooked soft egg, cheese foam, bagel chip, house-made bacon, and chives.

    Not super impressed with the food (brunch). It was good but nothing to write home about. Their brunch menu is not brunch but breakfast. My service was absurdly bad.

    Hardywood Gingerbread Stout on tap. Get the pork fries. Slow cooked egg with short rib is top notch.
