We stopped in Midway for lunch at Heirloom, and loved it! It seemed most of the patrons were locals (based on their familiarity with the wait staff and the menu) and we clearly were not, yet we were not treated as interlopers. Our waiter was...More

Heirloom never disappoints. Intimate atmosphere, excellent food creatively prepared and presented. Wait staff is friendly, knows the menu and does not intrude on your meal. Nice range of prices too.

This lovely restaurant was an unexpected treasure in this heart of horse country! Our party chose to sit outside and do some sidewalk gazing while we enjoyed lunch. The menu was both eclectic and "down home". Many entrees had a local twist with locally sourced...More

Came here on the recommendation of an innkeeper. The menu is eclectic and filled with awesome choices. We had the lamb tenderloin and beef filet. The preparation and presentation were, to us, five star. Cocktails and wine list were impressive. This one is a keeper....More

Just fabulous. From the interior design to service and food, you can't beat this place. Start with a perfectly crafted cocktail, then meander through each course. Don't be afraid to try something you are unsure of; it will likely amaze you. I don't think there...More

It's hard to find a soothing palette of beige and cream, much less one whose walls are adorned with whimsical, painting-size "cutouts"; whose backlit bar is simultaneously sleek, warm and inviting; and whose food doesn't allow the design to do all the work. But there's one place. Heirloom is Lexington's small-town neighbor with seriously sophisticated cuisine.
Owned by chef Mark Wombles and his father, Henry, the restaurant came out of the gate in 2006 to acclaim. Its standard has remained high, with only occasional slips. Now, however, with Nicolas True blood — formerly of The Mansion at Griffin Gate — as chef de cuisine, Mark Wombles' original vision of using fresh, local ingredients to create Kentucky dishes with a global sensibility and a hint of California influence is being met and exalted.
