York, PA is not known as a gourmand's destination, so expectations may be low. Raise them a bit, however, if you visit the Blue Heron. In short, the food, and the experience, are surprisingly good. So good that you wish it were just a bit better. Let me explain: There are many restaurants that you can tell are being all... More

Went here on a whim to have a great time with my gal since she wanted something different. I found Jason very pushy and rude to us and almost seemed to be rushing us to get done. He didn't bring us bread right away and I saw other guests being given a stuffed green pepper as an appetizer but he... More

Great food and great service. A suprisingly good find nestled in an unassuming area of town. The food was outstanding and our server, Jason, was attentive. My lamb chops were cooked exactly to order. The chocolate mousse was authentic, light in texture and rich on taste. The outside grounds could use some sprucing up to match the fine dining experience... More

If you are looking for authentic French cuisine in York, this is the best around here. I believe the owner is from Normandy, not that it matters, just a small rid bit of information there. I have eaten here on multiple occasions and have ordered the frog legs, calamari, steak au poivre and the duck confit. All of which I... More

This is my second review of the Blue Heron. It has gone down hill substantially, or the chef was having an off night. We had a French-inspired beef stew. Oddly, the beef was very dry in this dish. This suggests that the beef was held separately from the broth and possibly microwaved prior to reassembling the dish. Not very impressive.... More

Let's face it, York, PA, will never be considered a foodie's destination. That being said, the Blue Heron is a refreshing, more sophisticated experience, than one usually finds! Service is pleasant and accommodating, and the food is quite satisfying to the palate. My husband and I were quite pleased with the mussels and frites, and will return in the near... More

I was in the York area on business and only had two nights to explore. The first restaurant was a huge disappointment, as it had great reviews but horrible, horrible service.....the next night I tried the Blue Heron, and what a pleasure it was!!! I enjoyed delicious baked brie, wonderful salmon, and a delicious triple chocolate mousse....all accompanied by wonderful... More

We used to dine more frequently with David in his prior locations, but only twice at the current location. Although good and beautifully prepared, both times our entrees were a bit too salty. Service was good on both occasions. Although we will go again, it is probably a once or twice a year restaurant, instead of every other month like... More
