A good dining experience, vegetarians and meat eaters accomodated well

We were four for dinner, 2 vegetarians who might eat fish and two meat eaters. At the top of the menu was a set vegetarian 3 course meal (flora) which delighted in every way. The other vegetarian loved the trout and its imaginative and savory preparation. The chicken was excellently prepared said... read more

We hadn't been here for a few years, but decidd to give it another try for a birthday dinner becasue the chef/owner always gets so many accolades in the local Twin Cities magazines. But I guess he wasn't on duty that night. Only one of the dishes we had actually tasted good and that was the fried green tomatos (!).... More

We had a wonderful evening at the Heartland restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised to find valet parking even as early as 5pm. This was at the 5th St entrance which has stairs. There is also an entrance on North Broadway, which is handicapped accessible. The decor was a mix of modernized former warehouse, high ceilings & lots of natural light,... More

This was the second visit to the restaurant, the first one a year prior. While we had enjoyed the first experience, this second visit was even better. Lovely setting. Great menu - simple but plenty of choices. Fresh local ingredients. A nice wine list including some interesting wines by the glass. Service was attentive and warm. Overall a great experience...

The menu sounds terrific, but when the dishes arrive, they are under seasoned and bland. Service is fine. Wine prices are reasonable. Maybe the place is too big? Maybe a chef needs to tweak finishing touches and add more flavor. An example: the bright yellow macaroon that came with the lavender panna cotta: none of us could discern any flavor.

We were in town and decided to celebrate our anniversary a few weeks early. Were pleasantly surprised we could get reservations on a Friday night at 7pm, because we couldn't at Spoon & Stable or the Bachelor Farmer. Anyway, Heartland turned out to be a perfect choice. The service from Phillip was excellent, if I was guessing I'd say he... More

Heartland used to be located about half a mile from our house. They moved downtown about 5 years ago. We finally made it here. It is very large and open. Not crowded like many high end restaurants. Just north of the farmers market and across from the new baseball park. You will probably have to walk several blocks from where... More

We dined here to celebrate a friend's engagement. Honestly, it was hugely overpriced for what we received. The entrees are not good sized at all. Be prepared to leave hungry and poor!

We were attending an event in the neighborhood, so decided to give Heartland a second chance. We had been here once before, shortly after it moved to this location. Everything we tried was good, and the only thing that was delicious were the pickled onions in my green salad. We would have been satisfied at a lower price, but expected... More
