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

Enjoyed my lunch here though I felt their food on the salty side. My glass of champagne was flat which was a bit disappointing. Service was good.

I was invited to lunch and my friend suggested this restaurant. I do not remember specifically the name of the entrée I chose but it was a hot wrap with ham and cheese. I also had a side salad that came with it. It sounds ordinary but the way everything was prepared had an interesting flair. The food was just... More

I was SO pleased to finally fall upon this restaurant. Blue Heron is one of the BEST restaurants in York. My husband and I have been a few times and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is cozy, the food is amazing and the service is great. We have planned special occasions here, as well as taken out of town... More
