This was our third visit, each time the food has been good and the service great. They have a nice selection of wine. Dessert menu isn't huge, and the portions even smaller.... but the dinner sizes are bigger, so it evens out in the end. Restaurant is small. Reservations highly recommended. The decor was better before the recent redecorating, but... More

Nice little lunch with friends! Decor is ok. Food is average to good. I will probably return at some point.

Someone told me this "used to be better"--but it seemed pretty good to me! Attentive service, well-prepared cuisine, cozy spot. If price is no object, this is the place for you and your party..

We were staying briefly in York an found this thru TA, were delighted with both the food (we found it very much like what we've had on many trips to France) and the setting. (Yes, a few diners who insist on shouting their monologues, but that now happens everywhere.) We had the house salad (huge and delicious), mussels (small and... More

Wonderful food & wonderful service. The seafood is always good and the beet salad is the best. Reservations are usually required, but the night we were there it was a little slow. It is a small place, but worth the wait.

My wife took me here to celebrate my birthday, and it turned out to be a special treat. We had the restaurant to ourselves, probably because other folks were elsewhere at the start of York restaurant week, which Blue Heron was not participating in. It felt like we had "bought out" the place, like in so many rom-com movies. Service... More

We had reservations at John Wright in Wrightsville but when we got there, no table and no idea how long we'd be waiting. They SHOULD have contacted us to notify they'd had weather issues 3+ hours earlier but didn't. Texted a friend who recommended Blue Heron, called and we went right over. This was a birthday and celebratory date with... More

Service was friendly and prompt and the food was very good. We chose the three course prix fixe which was a good value.

No question, hands down. The BEST French cuisine within 100 miles (or more). Come here ready to eat and spend some money -- we can easily drop $100 on lunch -- but you'll love every bit of it. The ambiance is nice for an intimate evening, the drinks are great, and the food ... oh, the food! You WILL return... More

Went here for a romantic meal. Calamari appetizer was excellent, very light with subtle flavor. I had ratatouille, one of my favorites. It did not disappoint. Also had the Greek sea bass. Terrific. Special Valentines dessert, white chocolate and raspberry mousse in the shape of a heart. Good. We felt it reasonably priced compared to similar cooking that you would... More
