If you can stand the hautiness of the proprietor/chef this place has good food. The service is dependent on the day and the mood of the server(s) Inconsistency usualy makes me leary but the food is good.

I recently hosted a farewell luncheon for a friend here. We had 22 people in attendance.everyone raved about the food, the waitresses changed the entire seating arrangement at our request, gave us separate checks and helped in any way we asked. Shannon was our amazing waitress. I've never had a less than wonderful meal here, the ambience is quite lovely,... More

Our son requested a dinner at a French restaurant for his 12th birthday. We chose Blue Heron based on the reviews and the menu selections, and were so happy we did. From the escargot to the ratatouille, our son enjoyed every savory bite and was definitely made to feel like a guest of honor for his birthday. We had the... More

David Heron has brought his native French cuisine to this comfortable restaurant in East York and blended it with American choices. An accomplished chef himself he works miracles with flavors- fish soup, so French you'd find no better in Monmartre, Beef Bourguignon which you can cut with a fork before it melts in your mouth - steeped in wine gravy...

The sea bass is particularly good, and the mussels are great. You can't go wrong with that combo. The lamb chops are also particularly tasty.

We met another couple for dinner and the setting was such that it was difficult to talk. The dinning room was clean however very noisy from conversations at other tables. The acoustics are very poor. The tables and chairs were very uncomfortable as well. The food quality was very good, however when you spend as much as you going to... More

The restaurant is well run and they had their reservations timed perfectly so no one was waiting. This was very impressive since most restaurants overbook for nye. That says a lot for New Years. They had a special menu so the options were less and the prices were more. The food was very good. I had the salmon and my... More

I came here for a birthday with family, and was mildly impressed. The staff and service were exceptional; however, the food was just okay. Out of the four of us that visited we all thought that the food was good, but just that. I decided to go with the their fresh catch of the day, and it was very bland.... More

This used to be a much smaller restaurant on Queen Street, but they moved to their new location on Market street a couple of years ago. They now have a liquor license and serve alcohol. The wine list is reasonable with a nice mix of French and Domestic whites and reds. The food is French inspired. They have the best... More
