    Great food but hostess was a bit over the top! We made a reservation the night prior for dinner Sat. night and the only seats available to reserve were bar seats. We figured "let's give it a try"... Upon arrival I asked if any other seating had become available and we were quickly advised "no", and that we would be charged a cancellation fee if we declined to take the seats offered us ($50 cancellation fee). Well, that was quite the greating.... We decided to stay, as it was Sat. night and most places were booked. We were shown to our seats at the end of the bar (against a wall), facing the back side of the kitchen. Great ambiance (not). We were lucky enough however, to have Andrea take care of us, and she was tremendous!!! Andrea was personable, provided great service, and made our evening quite enjoyable! Food was great and I must say Andrea saved the night for us! I know we reserved bar seats, but I would suggest that the restaurant not offer those seats to diners making online reservations (kind of like having an obstructed view at a concert or sports event). Crammed in a corner, with a view of the back end of the kitchen, maybe they should keep that as bar space as oppossed to diners, paying good money for a night out... Again, thanks to Andrea for making things right for us! Regards

    HeirloomResponded 1 day agoHello Gregory Zant, Yessss, you indeed booked the bar for reservations. Something you did, not us. When you checked in, we were unable to offer you a table and you ignorantly declined the bar. We informed you that if you left, you would be considered a no show/cancel, which in turn violates our policy - which is all over Open Table & our website. After rolling your eyes, and being super dramatic, you finally sat down. We are so sad you won’t ever be joining us again! Happy summer G!

    The food, drink, service, Surroundings were all excellent. Pricing reflected the quality of the food and service. The restaurant was full so noise level was a bit high - every one was in good spirits! I love Heirloom !

    From the initial hostess to the waitress and the young lady who filled out water glasses, everyone was delightful and friendly. The food was truly a work of art on the plate and so delicious. We enjoyed the burrata appetizer and the ravioli and pork entree. The chocolate cheesecake was fabulous. We decided there is no need to eat anywhere else while in Lewes!!

    Our annual dinner at Heirloom did not disappoint. Sat at the cozy bar as tables and outdoor seating full. The bartender was helpful and attentive. Octopus/seafood appetizer, roast pork, steak and order of sautéed mushrooms all fantastic, along w/ bread, cocktails and wine. Well worth the price!

    Perfection! Heirloom never disappoints, but the scallops exceeded any expectations - the best I’ve ever eaten. Amazing how the chef seared them to perfection while maintaining the delicate flavor and texture. Add to this a fine, dry rose’ and a well-trained welcoming staff. Bon Appetit! 😊

    From the moment we walked inside everything was perfect to a T. Ian, the general manager, went above and beyond to ensure me and my fiancé had the best dining experience imaginable. Angel, our server, knew that menu inside and out and did an incredible job of describing some off the menu features the kitchen had done (soft shell Maryland crab and tempura style orange blossoms with a delicious melted goat cheese). Heirloom deserves all the praise in the world
