We loved this place so much we even got married here. Every meal we had was excellent. I will miss their presence in downtown St. Paul.

It's obvious that the New Year's Eve closing is affecting the food. The chicken last night was, basically, inedible. The only reason for the 3-star rating is because the appetizers were quite tasty, and the steelhead trout was well prepared. But, the chicken was awful!

We went to Heartland with high expectations and were really disappointed with our experience. The food just wasn't good. We didn't enjoy the amuse bouche. The bread was just ok. The pork rilette was so average it just shouldn't be on the menu. The pepper-tomato...More

This has been a great place to eat since its early days on St Claire Ave in St Paul. The downtown location is classy and the food and service are excellent.

Two couples met for a Saturday night dinner at a highly rated downtown St Paul restaurant and the four of us had very mixed feelings as we left. The building is beautiful. The service was very good. The restaurant was largely empty. We all really...More
