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.

Love the food and atmosphere at the Blue Heron. Our place to go for special occasions and when we just want to have a excellent meal in a well run restaurant.

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.

Did not enjoy blue heron. It smelled like cigarette smoke. Slow service. Seafood was like rubber. Custard was chewy. My wife even said she never needed to return, for her to say that, is pretty drastic! We'd been before and were not impressed, thought we'd try anew and it was even worse. Place is sad and depressing.

The Blue Heron is one of our favorite restaurants in York. We have always experienced great service and wonderful food. Our only complaint is that the menu has not changed for as long as we’ve been going and is the only reason we don’t go more often. Other than that….its great.

Don't be fooled by the location and exterior. Having visited Paris several times, it's been difficult to re-create that experience stateside. The Blue Heron was point on. I felt just like I was in a cozy French bistro. Nice varied menu selection and presented perfectly. Delicious all around. Be sure to try one of their specialty cocktails!

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
