Yelp users are generally positive about Night Heron, which currently holds four stars out of 53 reviews on the site.
Yelper Boyu H., who reviewed Night Heron on May 18, wrote, "Atmosphere: beach resort meets tiki bar...We had the Manhattan and Gin Tonic, both with twists in a classic recipe. The Madeira in the Manhattan was delicious, and the Gin Tonic was refreshing for a hot day."
Yelper Anthea R. wrote, "The chicken mousse was very good with its strawberry jam, but that's where it ends. The pan roasted sirloin was over done...the somen noodle did not come out cold, was over cooked and turned into a gummy texture."
