We were there for restaurant week, the 3-course prix fix. You'd think with three entrees the service would be prompt. We waited 30 minutes for the main course. I ordered pork belly, something I adore but cannot cook properly. Neither can Heirloom. Everything else was pretty tasty. The avacado/pea gazpacho was creative. Service friendly and waiter did apologize for delay..

I was so eager to eat at Heirloom and was disappointed that it did not live up the reviews and what I had read on the menu. The look and vibe of the restaurant was very nice, I liked the different seating areas - tables sprinkled around, some with banquette seating, cozy chairs, etc. We had reservations, so we did...

Heirloom presents great, fresh food to guests. Both the food at the restaurant and served during our conference was some of the best I have had in a long time.

This elegant restaurant in the "Study" hotel at Yale University offers an interesting menu based on Farm and Coastal themes, featuring ingredients sourced from local Connecticut and New England purveyors whenever possible. The food is fresh and well prepared, there is a good wine list and the service is generally good. This is one of the best places to dine... More

This is the best restaurant in New Haven and is located in The Study Hotel. A farm to table. The vibe in the restaurant is really good

We had a great time at the bar drinking wine and eating cheese. Excellent service and fun atmosphere. We will visit again.

A strong wine list. We went there the previous evening to have the tokay which is difficult to get at home. We liked the look so we made brunch reservations. There is a lot of food. The mimosas were good. So was the coffee. I settled on the pancakes. I could not finish them. We were a party of 5.... More

I have eaten at Heirloom only for lunch. The food is very very good. I won't say that the service was good, only fair. While the servers have been pleasant and knowledgeable, the service is for sure very slow and it's super hard to get the attention of your server when needed. The Study Hotel has a really cool vibe... More

Our daughter and son in law live in Fairfield county and we are in Madison. We have met more than once at Heirloom as it is convenient for both. The dining room is a cool, sleek, contemporary environment where one can immediately relax. I have found servers to be professionals who move swiftly and efficiently around the room never being...

I booked a table for two at Heirloom for New Year's Eve dinner. My husband had never been to this restaurant, while I had been several times for work and had been impressed with both the food and service. It was meant to be a special occasion. I realize it was New Year's Eve, when restaurants may find it difficult... More
