While personally not a fan of brunch buffets, I make an exception for the Sunday brunch @ the Heirloom Restaurant. A fresh, generous range of traditional favorites with the big benefit of being able to sit on their spacious veranda overlooking Lake Chautauqua. On a summer Sunday there is NO better place to eat.

I have dined at the restaurant at the Athenaum a number of times and heard it was under new management; once of the major changes is a set menu rather than daily. There are enough choices to please someone even staying for a week. On Fridays a dinner buffet was available which looked fine but I opted for a menu... More

We had not been to this restaurant or its previous incarnations, so we cannot compare the history. However I would say that Heirloom compares well with Le Fleur: interesting menu selection, nice wine list, including some local selections, excellent service. Not sure how fond I am of the large, somewhat noisy main room, which looks more appropriate for a wedding... More

The changes were apparent as soon as we sat down. Our service was prompt and the new menu was reasonably priced with lots of selections. The space has been updated and is very comfortable. We will include Heirloom with our favorite area restaurants. Scallion Bistro in Lakewood - Forte in Jamestown - Brazill's on Main in Westfield- Bellini at The... More

I was privileged to have the opportunity to attend the "soft opening" of the new Heirloom Restaurant inside the Athenaeum Hotel at the Chautauqua Instituition. Upon arrival, I noticed the hostess station poised beneath a beautiful new sign designating the restaurants name and it's place inside this historic hotel. The tables were tastefully decorated, with soft linens throughout, and an... More

Okay, who is in charge here? Whoever they are, they should be lashed with 10,000 noodles. Yes, we were on a chartered bus trip but does that mean we get only the leftovers? Granted, the bread basket was refilled several times, but that was because we made that request so we wouldn't be hungry all night. I had ordered the... More

We sat at the "Community Table" and always had great conversations. The food was good and we also had great conversation with the servers.

We have had dinner at the hotel before. Our experience has been the prices are outrageous, the food passable, and the service poor. We had read that there is a new farm to table restaurant open Friday and Saturday night. The reviews were favorable. We went. The portions were very small. My wife found her chicken difficult to eat and... More

After about 15 minutes the waitress came by. We were then told the buffet is over at 7:30. ALL of the food was depleted and... More

A bunch of my foodie friends excitedly tried the new Restaurant addition to the Atheneum. Namely. Bloom a farm to table experience. First off a meal with drinks and wine is about $100 per person. So when our main dish arrived with greens that seemed like the chef got involved in conversation and didn't stop pouring salt over these veggies... More
