Hearth Ratings and Reviews
My girlfriend and I made reservations to celebrate her birthday. When we arrived we chose to sit at the chef's table so we could see the dishes being prepared. Our waitress Laura provided excellent service and wine recommendations. We decided to have the tasting menu since everything sounded so good. It consisted of 12 plates to share including 2 desserts. Everything tasted wonderful. It was really fun watching the chefs prepare all the dishes. I'll definitely come back to hearth again soon.
We sat at the bar seats in the kitchen and our menu selection was chosen with help from Marco, the owner. The food was great, especially the rabbit and the mackerel. The only minor letdown was the gnocchi which was slightly over cooked. Overall a very enjoyable evening.
New Year's Eve Dinner with a special tasting menu, and everything my wife and I had was exceptional! This was our special meal for our 20th Anniversary trip, and we could not have chosen a better restaurant. Service was incredible and attentive, yet never hovering. We had a 4 course meal with wine pairings as well as house specialty cocktails to begin the evening. A little over 3 hour event, and I would not change a thing about our night. Absolutely one of the best dinner experiences we have ever had!
Very unfortunate3 meal. Except for the pate, the meal was unacceptable. The steak tartare was buried by vinegar and garlic and potato chips; we could barely find the meat and it was unidentifiable. My pasta had been reheated so some pieces were hot and come cool; and overall overcooked. My friend's short ribs were stringy. I had eaten at Hearth several times some time ago; this was nothing like my previous meals. Not recommended at all.
Came with my family including 14-48 year olds. Had the tasting menu which is usually just a small group foodie thing but worked great to make it a ‘family style’ meal but fine cuisine at the same time. They made the wine pairings ‘on the fly’ to suit the preferences (taste and consumption volume) of a diverse group including a cocktail pairing for the first course. Chef’s bonuses — Gnocchi and dark chocolate sampler — were the proverbial icing on the cake. Couldn’t have had a better evening for our group.
Fabulous, innovative food. Beautiful farm to table ingredients treated lovingly by talented chefs. Waitstaff are welcoming and attentive. Bring lots of friends - order lots of food. Be prepared to share delightful dishes and satisfied smiles. DON’T SKIP DESSERT!
Hearth is one of my favorite NYC restaurants and one I have been to a number of times over the last 7-8 years. I have a great deal of respect for the chef and the manner in which the restaurant is run. Service is superb and the food is generally delicious. That said, my most recent visit, the first since the restaurant was revamped to be more conscientious of its ingredients, did not quite meet my expectations from earlier visits. The tasting menu, with 3-4 courses coming out at once, some of them quite tiny in size, was an experience greatly removed from the earlier tasting menu, which generally blew me away in terms of quality and value. This is not to say the food is not generally very good, only to say that while I want to support the changes that have been made, I do not feel the restaurant is on the same caliber as it was before. I wish that were not the case. Standouts from my meal included the pastas (the only portions which were perhaps too big) and some excellent beef tartare. Disappointments included the main entrees and their sides (overly salted greens, exceptionally small portions of meat and fish, perhaps a bite-and-a-half per person) and smoky japanese sweet potato that was a bit too... dry. Desserts are, as they always have been, obscenely good. In sum, recommended but I wish I could continue to say - as I used to - that this is the best "bang for the buck" serious restaurant in NYC. I don't know that it retains that title for me anymore. I do hope to come back again and reconsider.
From the moment we were seated, we were served with the utmost respect and kindness. They did nothing short to make us feel special as they began our meal with complimentary soup flutes and ended our meal with complimentary miniature chocolate cookies. Everything was delicious and clearly made with the freshest of ingredients. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in a slightly more upscale, uninterrupted dinner where you'll even find the most charming cigar box on every table to place your electronics.
Love this place. I appreciate the importance they put on not wasting food and thoughtfully sourcing ingredients -- and like that their portion sizes are perfect! Also, LOVE whoever is doing their floral arrangements/decor (at least what was up this holiday season).
Our server, Melanie, was the perfect guide through a truly memorable meal. She made exquisite wine recommendations and was able to effortlessly answer all of our questions about each of the sumptuous preparations that came out of the kitchen. The experience was impeccable. We can’t wait to come back!
I am not sure how this restaurant maintains a positive review and relationship with zagat. I was very disappointed with the quality of drinks, food, and service.
I ordered a double espresso and they sent a coffee. They still charged me for double espresso.
The over priced meatballs were no better than you'd get at a local Sbarros pizza.
Bone marrow was less than average.
The $28 Black Sea bass was actually very good. Wish there was more of it.
Gnocchi and steak tartare was pretty amateur. They basically tossed salted potato chips from a bag on top of the tartare.
Spent $235 total for two and feel like I was ripped off. I'd skip this place
We were a party of five - amazing Pate and Salads for 1st Course. The Rabbit and Spare Ribs were tasty. The meatballs and the replacement calamari were tasteless and rubbery which caused overall rating to drop a star. Excellent wine sommelier we appreciated her choice👍👍👍
Hearth has been on my radar for quite some time. Hostess was unimpressive. Waiter Jefferson was a professional! We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu @ $78 per person and were very disappointed. The portions were small and unimpressive lacking substance/refinement to say the least. I think the portions at The French Laundry are bigger. I'm not kidding. But beyond that who's making the decisions in the kitchen? Add to that, a different unenthusiastic "runner" bringing out each of the 12 courses and you have the makings of an unimpressive first dining experience at HEARTH. I would suggest to anyone reading this that you do not order the tasting menu in order to steer clear of the sense of being ripped off when all is said and done. On a positive note, again our waiter was a pro and the atmosphere inside HEARTH has you believing that you are not sitting in a restaurant on 12 Street & 1 Ave! Rather nice. I will cautiously give it another go in the future.
Our server was wonderful, but when the restaurant got busy there were lapses in service -- although another person came over to help out.
The food was delicious and solid. Comfort food -- perfect for a cold evening.
The place was warm and welcoming. Noticed they had round tables which are always nice with a larger group.
Waiter was brusque, unavailable and rude through out meal. Cleared glasses with wine still in them. Was openly irritated by questions. My main arrived a solid ten minutes before my companion even though restaurant wasn’t full. Ruined the experience despite very good food.
