Two couples met for a Saturday night dinner at a highly rated downtown St Paul restaurant and the four of us had very mixed feelings as we left. The building is beautiful. The service was very good. The restaurant was largely empty. We all really wanted to like the Heartland but we were largely unable to do so. As we... More

A family celebration, relatives who came from afar, an acclaimed restaurant, what could be better, right? Wrong, unfortunately. My meal ranged from bland to unappealing. Imagine a gloppy beet vinaigrette coating a heap of salad greens whose color and flavor disappeared under all that magenta. Next, bland greyish millet with steelhead--no spark. And only 2 positive comments from an entire... More

Thoroughly enjoyed an anniversary dinner at Heartland. Only 4 or 5 other tables occupied (during a Saints game). We had an attentive and knowledgable waiter. My wife had the flora menu, I had the fauna menu. Thumbs up for both in taste and quantity.

Without going into great detail, service was good, food was average at best, portions were small, prices were high. Fine dining? The prices reflected that, but not much else. Will not return.

Great location, large, attractive restaurant, famous executive chef, great reviews, we were up for a nice fine dining experience. Swing and a miss. The service was the high point of the meal, very attentive and helpful waiter, checked in frequently but not obtrusively, couldn't ask for more. We had cocktails instead of wine for a change and they were excellent.... More

My wife, daughter and I had supper for our daughter's birthday. Two of use choose the prix fixe fauna choice while one ordered the trout. The food, wine and service where excellent. The. Elf as in a rich smoky sauce which I would love to duplicate. In Saint Paul, the place to go.

We were seated at a lovely table by the window. The food was wonderful along with the outstanding service by Jonna. We had a show at the Ordway and Jonna took that into consideration as we ordered our dinner. Heartland restaurant should be on your must dine list!

Heartland is a great farm to table restaurant, serving delicious dishes in a Midwestern style. Everything we had was really delicious. The restaurant is in lower town St. Paul and is really beautiful. The wait staff was very helpful and kind without being overall involved. A real winner!

My wife and I are foodies that decided to try Heartland for a Saturday night date. This was our first time here at Heartland, and probably our last. We came here because of the concept and because this chef has been so highly rated for so long. We do not know what was going on this Saturday night (May 14,... More
