This is a jewel of Americanized French cuisine which is really worth a visit for lunch or dinner. The service is exquisite, the menu is quite wide ranging with fresh market items every day and the wine list is plentiful and fairly priced. Try the boeuf Borguignon- its extraordinaire!

We stopped for dinner (without reservations) around 5:00 PM on a Friday night. The staff was very accommodating and sat us right away. I had the Escargot appetizer and my husband had the Tomato bisque. Both were delicious!! I ordered the Salmon with cucumber/salsa mix and husband got the fruittes de mer (combo of mussels, clams, scallops. We were both... More

Have you ever had a day that you just really hoped to find a perfect lunch experience but didn't expect to find it? Knowing that we would be in York for lunch today, we searched Trip Advisor for a lunch place and chose the Blue Heron. We arrived late (at 2:30) but were treated very well despite being the only...

I stopped here for lunch while on a business trip and was the best decision! The food and service are perfect! The bread is so fresh and I got the grilled steak salad and the steak was such high quality... I really recommend the Blue Heron! The restaurant is also really quaint and cozy... I wish I lived closer so... More

We had a group of 6 of us go here for dinner one Saturday evening. This is a 5 star restaurant, and it shows, no doubt about it. The food was wonderful, very fresh & flavorful. We all enjoyed our meals, and cannot say enough good things about the food. If you enjoy French cooking, this is the place to... More

This is a hidden gem located in East York, PA with absolutely wonderful French food, a terrific bar and specialty drinks - not to mention very friendly attentive service and a place many locals come to. Also great for business dinner meetings with a semi-private room near the bar. I keep going back to this place also for special occasions.

Just there this past monday with 2 girlfriends. For a monday I was glad to see other patrons also dining, since mondays are quiet. However, this is one of the few nice restaurants in York open on a monday, which was appreciated. All our food was acceptable, although my snails weren't in shells so I was a bit disappointed by...

I was disappointed in the quality and execution of, one of my favorites, frogs legs. They had been frozen and we're either tough, or freezer-burned. They were served in so much butter, I transfered them to my bread plate. I mentioned this and was told...."that's how the boss (not the chef) likes them. I enjoy butter, but too much can... More
