What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.9

Hearth has been one of the East Village’s best restaurants for over a decade, and it just got a whole lot lighter and leaner.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Love this place! So pleased to know that there are still places like this in New York which thrive because of the quality of the food, the service and the overall ambience. Just as it should be! I will be a regular here and am only sorry that it's taken so long for me to try it. The menu has a lovely blend of salads and other appetizers as well as offering a delicious range of main courses, all constructed with seasonal, local ingredients in peak condition.

We loved the food - very eclectic. Our waiter Eric was superb. We also enjoyed the chef's sampling of soup and also a nice pairing of sherry with our anchovy dish, recommended by Eric. Everything was excellent and delicious.

It was exactly what I was hoping for: a place for Paleo, vegan, vegetarian And overall a chef who cares about the animals and the quality of the ingredients and by that I mean organic. Great experience and great food

Food was bad.

Starters were too salty. Beef tartare had cheese it in which is unheard of and I got sick after eating their fish

Excellent food, chefs choice menu, and wine pairing.
Excellent service.
The ambiance was good, but a bit crowded, the noise level could have been a bit lower.
Dishes were served at a slow pace, which allowed time to savor with the wine.
Spent 2.5 hours at the meal.
Most of the dishes were excellent.
A couple out of 10 dishes were very good.
One pork and pasta dish was a touch over salted.
One dessert was a bit too sweet.

Great food! I split the sausage and kale ragu and the French toast. Usually French toast is too sweet for me, but this one wasn’t, it was so good!! And the ragu is amazing! Tons of flavor. The Apple spice muffin was also very good, as was the yoghurt and granola. The place had tons of light, and cute, antique design twists. Definitely will return.

Atmosphere was very romantic and nice. We went right at open at 6pm so it was fairly empty and then we left like an hour later as it started to fill up and get busy so the timing was great. The food was delicious and plating was great, overall very satisfied will definitely go back.

Great food, in attentive service. We were there early and it wasn’t busy, but it took a very long time for our server to greet us and take a cocktail order, and too much time passed between his visits.

My boyfriend and I ordered the tasting menu with drink pairings. Both the food and drink selections were interesting and well prepared. The 12 dish tasting menu was served over 4 courses by 3-5 servers. Despite the fact there were multiple servers, no one ever missed a beat. When our plates/glasses were finished, they were immediately removed and new, clean ones appeared and our water glasses never went empty, always being refilled with no ice as we requested at the beginning of the meal. The food was plentiful, actually a little too much for us and everything was perfectly cooked. We particularly enjoyed the house made fresh bread (crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside served with delicious grass fed butter) and the gnocchi (which melted in our mouths like nothing I have ever experienced). Have already recommended this restaurant to several friends and hope to return next time I’m in town!!

Worst dining experience I’ve had in a very long time. Came here for NYE pre fixe. Food was mediocre at best. Zero hospitality given from start to finish. Save your money and your time. Way better restaurants in this city.

The menu for brunch is quite limited. Be sure to ask your server about portion sizes and the dish components before you decide on what to order. We didn’t realize the brodo with stracciatelli was reminiscent of beef broth egg drop soup ($15 for a small bowl). The side dish of polenta was enough for only one person (barely). This restaurant would be better served to offer fresh sliced bread (at no charge) with varied egg dish options for brunch. Bloody Mary’s are good but in a larger glass, like “Cookshop” a phenomenal spot in Chelsea. The glasses reminded me of the drinking glasses at grandma’s house, with orange flowers. Hearth would be packing in crowds with a more expanded menu selection and better value for the $$.

Nothing special. The broth is tasty and healthy but very simple and that's the theme running through most of the dishes. Feels like meals that one can cook at home and with minimal ingredients. Limited menu selection also. Sure everything is healthy but one would expect more from a good meal than just being healthy organic or sustainable. Generally left feeling underwhelmed. Duck was undercooked and chewy. The place also gets very noisy. The service was great.

We've been to this restaurant several times. The name Hearth evokes a warm and inviting place and that's exactly what you feel. The ambiance is great. The lighting is soft, the noise level low (even when packed), and the service genteel. When we started our last meal, we felt a bit rushed and asked them to slow down with the next course and they did. At the end, they asked if they could remove our plates. This type of service is hard to find today in Manhattan.

Despite its name, the food is primarily Italian. And the emphasis is "farm to table" so the quality is fresh. In my opinion, the food is quite good but not exceptional. Nothing I've had stands out as being unbelievably good or bad. The restaurant has broad selection of wines to accompany the food. Waiters are knowledgeable about the food and the wine.

For a cozy and intimate eating experience, I highly recommend it.

The Feast of the Seven Fishes at Hearth exceeded our expectations on our first Christmas Eve living in New York City. The uncomplicated dining room and bar bring to mind idyllic countryside kitchens, and the food continues to evoke similar memories. Fish and shellfish shined in every course before dessert, supported by an ensemble of fresh beans, sauces, broths, and greens.

We will be back soon.
