  • Lunch in the market is amazing and so reasonably priced!
  • Voted Best Restaurant in St. Paul by City Pages 2012! The chef hasn't slowed down in the slightest since opening this beacon for locally grown produce in 2002.
  • Most of the food at Heartland and its adjacent market-cafe comes from within a 300-mile radius. In the true spirit of Midwestern welcome, the menu aims to please myriad appetites and predilections.
  • Precise cookery. For those rare people who can tell good food from great food.
  • Try anything pork -- Heartland has built a robust charcuterie and pork program around Minnesota-raised Mangalitsa pork. We interviewed chef-owner Lenny Russo on his pork program:
  • Eater National 38 member: Around 90 percent of the food at Heartland and its adjacent market comes from within a 300-mile radius. There's nothing fussy or self-satisfied about the experience.
  • Amazing farm to table fare. Beautiful space. Expensive.
  • Menu changes daily. If we go again, we'll order small plates and take advantage of the variety of offerings. The rainbow trout was perfect. The beef strip was a little bland and tough.
  • Its locavorous menu includes Wisconsin elk tartare, a Midwestern mixed grill of Illinois fallow venison and Minnesota wild boar sausage.
  • The excellent wine list and respectful, peaceful service make the fine-dining room at Heartland the best fancy meal in St. Paul.
  • Great for foodies, and the non foodies were happy with the bar menu. Get the heirloom tomato bruschetta.
  • Slow service, small portions, bland apps. Best thing I had was a mini french press coffee after dinner.
  • Overpriced. Not that great. Average food with small portions. Personally, I'd avoid.
  • Great atmosphere and food!
  • Their cheese sampler plate is always delicious
