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

We live not far from the Blue Heron, and have meant to go there, but haven't until now. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with dinner there. It was outstanding! We always lament the fact that there are no fine-dining places in York. Well, strike that. There's at least one! Our food was not only delicious, but beautifully presented. My... More

The food and service were very good. The boorish behavior of the owner ruined the evening. He swore and yelled foul mouthed epithets at our President as were leaving. We will not return.

I was at the Blue Heron for the first time a few days ago. The food was excellent and the portions were large. I had plenty to eat and still had leftovers for 2 meals. The soup was delicious and the ratatouille was superb. The caramel flan for dessert was exceptional. The server suggested a blended wine; I wish I... More

Blue Heron is top notch. The owner loves to mingle with guests - he is so pleasant and takes pride in his establishment. The food is prepared perfectly and I love the atmosphere.

Have tried most of the menu, with every meal as good as any other. Cannot say anything negative about the menu or the service. The owner makes it a point to check on you, every time. Highly recommend. Reservations needed on the weekends.

The cuisine at this restaurant is superb. We enjoyed a Christmas party here and the food and ambiance was delightful. Dave the manager was quite attentive. And the wait staff was very professional and delightful. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts were exceptional. The mussels and calamari were very good. The French food and atmosphere is worth returning to enjoy.
