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.

Hearth never disappoints. The brunch menu, while limited, is delicious. It’s not too crowded or noisy, which makes it a lovely place for a slow chatty brunch.

We have been here a couple of time, overall really nice place and good food, this time our choice of first course was not the best; the whole fish was dry outside and not perfectly cooked in the inside.

We absolutely LOVED our first meal here. We sat in the Main dining room and relished in the full dining experience from start to finish. We just went for a second time and while the service was still friendly and attentive, and the food was equally impeccable, we didn't enjoy the ambience as much by the kitchen. One of the details that we had appreciated so much about the main dining room was the boxes for cell phones to encourage not using phones during dinner, we were disappointed to see that those are not on every table, the couple next to us were on their phones the whole time and it lessened the overall impact. Still would recommend, but would suggest requesting the main dining room, especially if it is a special occasion!

We were there late-ish on Valentine’s Day and had a great meal and a great time. A warm atmosphere with very good food — although to tell you the truth, we would have been happy to have a bit more repose in order to enjoy it. The first course came in minutes before we’d had a chance to enjoy our aperitif. Delicious, but sudden. It was a busy night there, of course, and perhaps the kitchen was feeling as if it was in overdrive. A great meal (scallops , lamb chops, sensible wine pairing at reasonable cost).

My wife is a foodie and I missed the cut off for Valentine's Day for the trendy restaurants I would usually try to get reservations at. I yelped my neighborhood and although I never heard of Hearth the menu looked right up her alley. She loved it and even though I can find foodie restaurants challenging I enjoyed every bite. Great wine selection and to my delight an excellent IPA I've never had before. From the fried clams to the cheese plate for desert we enjoyed the meal immensely.

Food was incredibly good, but gave me a stomach ache. I have a sensitive stomach, but it set me off. But it’s was so tasty.

And our waitress was pretentious and pretended to be French at a noveau Italian place. Both annoying and misplaced.

Barring those two annoyances, id 100% return.

We went with two friends for sunday brunch during restaurant week. Amazing and very friendly staff! Coffee was really good and I highly recommend the meatballs, French toast, the eggs and bacon!
Finally the atmosphere is very cozy.

Only - : the Bloody Mary was very strong.

Overall I highly recommend Hearth!

Service was very poor. We were left sitting for 1 hour with no food, no water refills and we were not asked if we would like another drink. So sat for 30mins with no other drinks!

Given we were left waiting for so long. We then had to get up to speak to a member of staff to explain the situation. They then explain our food got lost in the kitchen and it would be with us shortly. This was simply not good enough. So just cancelled the order.

She apologized and said she would email me to invite us back and hopefully be able to make it up to us with complimentary drinks and deserts. Of course I never received this email. Very disappointing service and will not be recommending this place to anyone!

I receive so many requests to review things and so little time available that I’ve pretty much stopped unless something is outstanding or terrible. Our recent dinner at Hearth was outstanding. Friendly service, excellent wine list, and in particular everything we were served family style as part of the tasting menu was delicious. Our Austrian friends, visiting NYC for the first time, were very impressed.

We went in for restaurant week to try a new place. Prices for reataurant week were equal to regualr menu prices.

We asked our server for recommendations and she suggested the ricotta fritters. Amazing! We also go buckwheat pancakes and fell in love! Ginger spice latte and a version of hot chocolate set brunch off!

Great service and quality ingredients!

Hearth was chosen for its sustainable farm to table menu to celebrate a significant birthday. A round table easily seated our party of five. First of all, winter does not offer as many tasty options as spring, summer, and fall. We chose the tasting menu and the staff accommodated our diet needs of: no meat, no shellfish, no nuts--bless their hearts! We received four courses with three choices each: appetizer, second, main, dessert. Everything was fresh, plated beautifully, and each dish had its own flavor and texture.
The service was well-timed and well-performed. The decor and place settings are appropriate for the philosophy of this restaurant. It's the cuisine that counts and matchy-matchy doesn't make the food less tasty-tasty.
The one true drawback (and it is a prevalent complaint these days) is that the noise level brought us to almost shouting level until the evening wound down and we could converse civilly.
Ending on a positive--we sampled foods of a global nature and enjoyed our time at Hearth. We would like to thank them for their ability to give us an evening of joy and good conscience.

Had a wonderful dinner at Hearth. I hadn’t been before and picked it from OpenTable because the menu looked good. The host was super nice accommodating my elderly dinnermate (93 yrs young) with a comfortable seat, and the food was excellent. He was eager to have fish and loved the Black Bass, and my Gnocchi were delish!

I was nervous about picking something at random from OT, but was very happy with the choice. And he is planning to go back.

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.
