The flatbreads are excellent,
The flatbreads are excellent, and the "small plates" are sufficient for a main course for most diners. The chilled pea soup was sublime.

Not just if you're staying there
I stayed at the Hilton and discovered Harth and it was delicious, now we go whenever we're in town! Great food, wonderful atmosphere. The pictures don't do it justice.

Small lovely fire features inside and outside really inspire the coziness of home...
The bright white spacious couches and tables (booths) are fantastic and spacious.
No need to "make space". Food... Outstanding!
Go here... Eat.... Be happy!

They have done a great job with this setting. Very comfortable and good all around

Nice outdoor dinner
Great food and drink menu. Outdoor dining area is nice with tables for dinner, small bar tables and couches for drinks and appetizers. Loved the cold pea soup with curry mist. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Great ambience, service needs work
There are many plusses to Harth. The restaurant is lovely and spacious. The food was good -- with the exception of the dessert which was one of the best I've ever tasted! So glad I ordered it as I rarely indulge in desserts.
The service,on the other hand, was both slightly snooty and not very professional. The waiter was keen to let us know that Harth is committed to local growers, sustainability, blah, blah, but when it came to getting our drink orders, actually taking our orders, and presenting the food, he made himself scarce. At one point I found myself talking to his retreating back! He even disappoved of one of our choices.
I still plan to return. The other waiters seemed to be doing better jobs.

Why didn't we find this before!!!
Food was fantastic and our server really managed to gauge our appetite so ordered 3 small plates and a flat bread between 4 leaving just enough room to share 2 desserts. As everyone says the bacon jam was terrific. A must go in Mclean.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good, and looked delicious. Negative comments regard the speed of service. It took too much time for our party to have our order taken, and then the food was delivered to the table after what seemed to be too long of a wait as well.

Perfect for a business lunch
We've had trouble finding places for lunch where you can actually hear the people you are with. Harth is a beautiful restaurant with great service and good food. But the real benefit is that it has a quiet lunch scene. It is the perfect place to catch up with clients or friends.

Great for food and conversation
Food was wonderful. Waiter was attentive, but respectful of our space and conversation. We didn't have to fight Tysons mall craziness and we could hear other talk. Great wine selection and mixed drinks were spot on. Sleeper restaurant that is right in the middle of Tysons. Highly recommend!

The food is outstanding; the
The food is outstanding; the menu is varied & reasonably priced and the service is absolutely great.
Many people avoid hotel restaurants, but they should know this Hilton Hotel restaurant is located next door to the new World Headquarters of Hilton International. Their top executives dine at Harth and judge the food and service every day.

Went for breakfast and it
Went for breakfast and it was incredible (if a bit on the pricey side). The bacon jam is every bit as amazing as other reviewers say - the perfect balance of savory and sweet. Great for an early morning meeting with colleagues. The fire features would also make it a romantic place for dinner. A rare find in Tyson's Corner. The quality of food far exceeded the norm for a hotel restaurant.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been to Harth a number of times. Easy to get to and park.
Once I side the magic begins. Setting to warm and inviting and the staff friendly and informative. Had an exceptional waitress. Have forgotten her name but she is Arabic. I had special dietary requests and she handled everything beautifully. The meal was exceptional - kale and tomato salad with seared scallops! In addition, love the option of a glass and a half of wine. Recommend the restaurant often. Family and friends find it a gem as well!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience at Härth - excellent food and exceptional service. Started with the chipotle BBQ shrimp - good portion and shrimp were cooked perfectly. The chipotle sauce was flavorful and the corn salsa fresh. We also tried the mussels, which were a chef's special. Those were our favorite. If they are on the menu, I highly recommend them. Also tried the roasted mushroom flatbread and the scallop entree. Both delicious.
We'll be back.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good decor, pricey meal
The decor was very nice, the several fireplaces with various glass and mirrors gave an overall warmly-lit look and feel. The outside dining also had a long and large fireplace. The indoor dining had see through curtains so that the outside fireplace was visible. Very nice effect.
The food was a bit pricey as were the drinks. Service was very friendly, good and prompt. I did not care for the bacon jam at all - it had a bitter taste.
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Camped Out By the Fire
Not a crumb of food was left on the table. The grilled calamari, ratatouille, and mushroom flatbread were favorites. We also couldn't believe a side of cabbage could taste that good. The only reason we didn't give service 5 stars - the pacing was slow. However, the timing inspired us to nestle into our booth by the fire and feel comfortable enough to camp out most of the night.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
ok- for small parties
ok- for a small group. can't seem to handle the larger crowds. they want to make it up-scale with the wine room and sommelier but it just can't get to that level. it is just a hotel restaurant and it does sometimes feel like the Applebee's staff is trying to run a 5 star restaurant.
not for kids
been there a total of 3 times so far - requested by our clients.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date spot
I went here with my husband and son. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. We had a booth near one of the fireplaces. The service was excellent. I had rockfish, my husband had chicken breast and my son had a flatbread. All of the meals were excellent.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
An excellent restaurant all around. The menu is relatively small and focused and the few choices are so good that it is still hard to choose. For starters, the bread basket is very good and comes with butter and BACON JAM. The latter is perfect - it balances the salty, savory pork and the sweetness of jam perfectly. The seared halibut with succotash was exceptional if a bit small. The flatbreads are wood fired and very delicious. We finished off the evening with pastry covered in fresh fruit with a scoop of ice cream. The wine list is not very long, but it was very reasonably priced and had options for 1 glass and 1.5 glasses for most wines. The service is very professional and polite.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Harth is one of my favorite places for lunch. It has a great atmosphere (sophisticated but not stuffy); delicious and well priced food; and attentive service. It always provides a pleasurable lunch experience.

Excellent Harth Review
Food, as always, was tasty and well-presented. Wait staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I've eaten at Harth on a few occasions in the past and each time I've ordered something different and have never been disappointed. Also, the servers remember me and my family, even though it's been quite a while since my last visit, and that's also a "plus." I plan to return in the future and highly recommend the restaurant.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth th Trip!
Dinner with old friends whom I had not seen in over two years was made more enjoyable and special by the warm, friendly service, outstanding presentation and plating...and most importantly the food was delicious. Our table enjoyed pork chop, steak and scallop entrees...all cooked to perfection. The chocolate "cupcake" dessert was an amazing update to a traditional favorite ... We all shared with the caramel "pudding" selection. Härth is a hidden gem worth finding hidden among the McLean office parks along Jones Branch. Program the GPS and go! LcH
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The overall dining experience was great. I was disappointed with the cocktails, however. I ordered a mojito and was disappointed to find out that you use a sugary/syrupy pre-mix and do not put the extra effort into making a quality cocktail the way it was intended to be made. I did not finish it and sent it back. The very pleasant waitress brought me a replacement very quickly and all was forgiven.
The food was excellent and service was very good. It was my first experience there and I would absolutely like to return and will definitely suggest your restaurant as a great place to go for a romantic dinner with a very unique outdoor ambiance. But please, no more pre-mixed cocktails! Your establishment is much too classy for that!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food but where's my omelet?
First off the selection of food items on the breakfast bar for Saturday brunch was good and prepared well. My only comment is that if you are going to end up paying $30.00 a person (w/tax and tip)
I think you should have the option of having an omelet made for you.

Birthday Dinner with Best Friend
The staff was so accommodating and helpful. They helped me orchestrate the dinner and were just so wonderful, warm and enjoyable to be around. We weren't really there to do a "big" dinner but we were treated just the same as others who were enjoying multiple courses. I had the butternut squash soup. The chef did forget the manchego on my apple and endive salad but that was quickly fixed by our server who brought me a whole plate of thinly sliced manchego to add. My best friend had the iceberg wedge salad and the cauliflower. We both loved the bread! Love it because it's off the beaten path, it has an international flair to it (people who know how to host) and the atmosphere is awesome (the decor is unique and inviting and warm).
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was unique with all fresh and local ing. Our server, Khadija, was fantastic and passionate.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun place with friends.
We had out of town guests and decided to go to the Harth for dinner. Everyone was very pleased with the food, service, ambience and we could all hear each other when talking.
All in all, a very nice evening.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice option in the Tyson's area
Harth is a very good option for dinner in the Tyson's area. It's decor and ambiance are inviting and special -- a significant distance from even higher end chain restaurants. The food is imaginative, carefully prepared, and enjoyable. The wait staff is friendly and helpful -- although not always as rapidly accessible as would be nice. Altogether, it's a good choice, and one I will make again.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Its so nice to have a new restaurant in Tysons with inventive cuisine, a modern but relaxed environment, and great service. Plus, they have their own beehives and make wonderful honey infused drinks (the Hive is amazing) and put it their outstanding Bacon Jam. Save the honey bees!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ate there twice while staying in the hotel for business. One night had an awesome mushroom risotto with scallops and a great cauliflower appetizer. The next meal of cheddar and beer fondue and smoked pork chop was less enjoyable. The sausage for the fondue was somewhat greasy although the fondue itself was excellent. The smoked pork chop had a great flavor but odd texture. The homemade bread is tasty as is both the butter and bacon spread. Cocktails are EXTREMELY expensive. $16 for a Grey Goose martini? PLEASE! I don't pay that much in NY. If I lived in the area, I would definitely make it a destination dinner but not necessarily an event dinner and if you are staying in the hotel or in the area, its certainly worth trying.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent food - starts with
excellent food - starts with signature bacon jam served with the bread - yummy.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The shrimp with cheese grits was amazing. Their signature cocktail - the Hive - was really good! The chef does an amazing job with the food. The risotto with scallops and funghi was out of this world, but I think the shrimp was my favorite. To finish off I had the cream cheese ice cream which was amazing. A great chef and a good price for the type of food you get - the only negative is the wine is expensive for what it is. The wine we ordered was a pinot noir and set us back $52, but was more like at $28 bottle. I think most hotel chain restaurants sting you on drinks in any event as I've found the same at the Westin. Definitely worth a trip for the food......
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable once again
I do wish the appetizer portions were larger for the price point. Friend ordered oysters and was greatly disappointed in the quantity given. The first time I went I had a great vegetarian entree- great choice and much left over. . 2nd time I went I was introducing another friend to my find and we were left still hungry, which was surprising given we almost never find a need to order an entree to be satiated and like the variety of appetizer plates.
Will I go again - most definitely but with more knowledge about what to order....
It's decor is quite quite lovely.
10/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
I have eaten here many times. While in the past service has been spotty (but always exceedingly friendly), this occasion was perfect. This restaurant is one of the great secrets in the DC metro area and the food is always wonderful. Bacon jam for your bread is revelatory. Their dessert cupcake is without peer. Roast chicken, a throwaway at other restaurants, is cooked to juicy perfection and accompanied by red pepper jam and mustard, each flavor doing battle to your greatest advantage. Go explore, there is no risk!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice ambiance, great food
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Harth and greatly enjoyed it. The food was excellent, the wine was great, and the fireplaces made the whole restaurant glow. It was overall a really nice experience.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't often expect a gourmet restaurant tucked into a hotel with captive audience. Harth was a wonderful and delicious surprise! The salted beets salad, the pear and fig flatbread, and the wild mushroom risotto with diver scallops were all fabulous. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. A lovely autumn evening, eating great food and catching glimpses of the many hearths burning merrily.

Nice Spot for Dinner in McLean
We had a date night here on Friday. It was a very pleasant experience. We will return. Wine was a bit pricey, we bought a bottle. The atmosphere is really fantastic. We will certainly recommend this to friends. Don't skip the deserts. They were very good.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Harth has really good food for a really fair price. Note, that doesn't mean that it's cheap - to some it may be considered a pricey restaurant. But I think compared to some places in the area, it's a very good deal. The food is yummy! You MUST order the bacon jam - this delicious in house creation that you slather over bread - it will change your life. The roasted chicken and the scallops and wild mushroom risotto are also delish.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
a lovely evening
I ordered the veal shank. It came as described and was delicious, accompanied by root veggies that were cooked to perfection. I will definitely return.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A treat for the eyes and palate
A beautiful setting in the McLean Hilton. Spaciously set so that there is a sense of privacy yet in a warm environment.
My pork sandwich was delicious and the service was good yet unobtrusive.
Somewhat pricey, but that goes with being in a hotel setting.
In sum, excellent overall for a business lunch.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for date night dinner!
My fiance and I had a date night here at Harth and we will be back! He had the BBQ Shrimp and Grits and the Roasted Cauliflower, and I tried the Wild Mushroom Risotto. All were very flavorful and delicious. As for the cocktails, I had the Hive and I loved it! The fact that Harth has 4 beehives of their own makes this drink that much better because you can taste the honey in it which gives it a very fresh flavor - it definitely is not store bought honey! Then for dessert, we tried the Butterscotch Pudding, based on our waiter's recommendation. It was perfect! The presentation was neat because they give you the ingredients and you put it together yourself - it was definitely enough for the both of us.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great, and the wait staff was kind and helpful. We waited a long time for our entrees, but the manager was profusely apologetic and she comp'd a round of drinks, which more than made up for our time. The entrees were creative and the desserts were sinful. What an amazing restaurant.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the smiling host to a very attentive waitres-Maria, the evening couldn't go any better. The ambience of the place is a perfect setting for a romantic dinner for two or bigger group dinning out. The food was excellent and the stuff made sure to bring the dishes at the right moment. At the end of the evening the HÄRTH helped us to celebrated the b-day with the special surprise. Will come back in the heartbeat :)
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Only problem - serious one
Only problem - serious one in my view - is lack of parking. Such pricey fare should merit valet parking.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food and service very good.
Food and service very good. Had the mushroom risotto with scallops! Must try the bacon jam the chef makes!

Harth is a solid dining presence
In the Tyson's Corner area of Washington DC's Virginia suburbs, Harth is one of a handful of reliable choices for very good food and service and pleasant ambiance. The menu exhibits some worthwhile creativity by the kitchen, bread is very good, and there are many good wine choices. The food and table service were up to their usual standards this time.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Flavorful and beautiful
I'd been itching to try HÄRTH since I had a conference at the Hilton Tysons Corner. The decor is gorgeous, modern, and luminescent. Service is attentive but not overbearing.
The menu is seasonal and limited, but varied. I was a little disappointed that 7.30pm on a Saturday night they had already run out of the veal. I really wanted to try that dish. Instead I got the porkchop (which was huge). Perfect wood fired spiciness and moist inside. My friend had the rockfish which was flavorful and not dull like other white variety fish. The salads are large enough to share, and cheddar/sausage fondue- awesome. For dessert we had the butterscotch pudding and cake. Unique presentation and perfectly sweet. Great experience overall and will return.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect for a Happy Birthday
This is a great place! We dined before going to Wolf Trap Barns...so we had an elegant meal while in business casual clothes. Great food and excellent selection to appeal to all. Nice pairing wines. Love the ambiance with fires burning ... very cozy yet modern. And they surprised us with a lovely included birthday dessert for my sister.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A perfect venue
Whether you are looking for a place to have a business meeting, a relaxing fine dining experience, or an esccape from the hustle, this restaurant will exceed your needs. I brought my daughter and mother here to celebrate my daughter turning four years old (I do NOT recommend doing this unless your child can sit quietly-there were various business luncheons and the noise level was at all times respectfully subdued). I was fully expecting this to be a fine dining experience and my daughter is very well behaved for a small child, but the level of attention was surprising. The whole experience was superb, much better than would have been expected.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always like coming back
We ate several times at Harth in the summer and dined outside which was wonderful. First time eating inside and it was a great experience as usual.
