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.

A very limited breakfast/ brunch menu and small portions, the smallest ice coffee I ever had actually. Food was good and service was nice, but don’t see a reason to go again for breakfast. Dinner may be a different experience.

It's a cute space but the service wasn't up to par and slow. Barely checked on us and took a while to take our order. The food was moderate, not hating. But for the price, I wouldn't say it was worth it.

The service was unfriendly! We had the ten dishes tasting menu. One of the dishes was simply bread and butter! I was surprised that bread and butter is a dish! The wine pairing was poor and not worth the money!
The quality of the food was okay but the taste wasn't exciting! We expected more from a tasting menu! The food has little to do with Italian cooking! We had a nice table at the window! The noise from the other tables was extremely loud!
Also this was a reservation for a birthday celebration.
The evening was not worth 300$!

Nice place. Feels homey. Went with waitress recommendations from wine to food. None was good. I guess we didn’t tried the “good” food that everyone is raving about but judging from the food we had (radish, calamari and pork pasta) I probably wouldn’t enjoy the rest of the menu. We had 4 glasses of (mediocre) wine the 3 small dishes mentioned above and a small tasteless marshmallow desert. All for 150$ before tip. Really ? Definitely a no go for me or whoever I like and asks me about this place.

Service was excellent. Ordered cook books written by the cheff which they arranged to have sent our home in DC.

We may have just caught them on a bad night, but I regretted bringing my guest here. Service varied from over- to under-attentive. The meal was unobjectionable but nothing worth lingering over or returning for. I had a much better experience here a year or so ago.

I wonder how long it will take before people realize that the restaurant is a big letdown and a big disappointment. Came to Hearth on a Friday night during prime dinner hour. The restaurant was fairly full (which is usually a good sign), however the service was atrocious. The server paid more attention to the next table over (which was originally our table before they decided to "make room" for their party). We watched the server explain the menu to that table, and then proceed to come to our table and ask if we're ready to order.

Ordered the garlic bread, charred carrots, fusilli, and the sea bream en papillote. The food was decent, however it didn't justify the price point. It was good, but did not blow anybody away. And back to the non-existent server - who didn't even bother to circle back. The water person had to ask if we wanted another drink. Wow.

And when the check came, the server mixed up the tables and gave us the next table's check! It's a shame that the server ruined the entire experience. There are plenty of options in EV - I would just skip this restaurant all together. It's too bad - the restaurant had a good ambiance.

Unsuspecting exterior, then you walk in and it's bustling. The brick walls and warm wood are complimented by exquisite painting of beets & tomatoes the size of murals.

The best part an employee who is an artists did all of the works. I thought it was great they had a relationship to the work and their worker.

I came by myself walked a half hour, and it was well worth it.

The hostess was a matriarch - warm, inviting, commanded a presence but exuded a genuine care. I felt as if I could have been the only one there, but it was packed.

She walked calmly, slowly - ensuring everything was perfect and each person was attended too. Not asking but carefully watching.

My waitress was equally lovely. My favorite part was the garlic bread. Perfect texture, both soft & crunchy. Parsley, real garlic, and acidic lemon.

Hearth is not pretentious, well maintained, has impeccable service and is wildly consistent. The chef is brilliant as are the dishes. Simple but completely fabulous. I’ve been back to Hearth over and over again and have never experienced anything out of place or off putting. The food is refined comfort food that suits so many palates. I can bring family, friends, colleagues and dates here without having to worry that they won’t find something they like. EVERYTHING is delicious. I’m obsessed with Hearth, obviously, and will remain to be for the foreseeable future.

I've been here several times, but the service we received on this visit was very subpar. It took 20 minutes for us to flag down our waiter to place a drink order and then another 20 minutes to place our dinner order where he informed us they were out of two of the main dishes. The rest of the evening continued in the same fashion, I had to get his attention to order another beverage and another guest at the table didn't order a second drink because she couldn't get his attention. For a restaurant that I typically consider a go-to, this was a disappointment to say the least.

Went in with my wife for brunch Sunday afternoon. At first I wasn’t sure about the menu as a guy that likes meat heavy meals like a burger. But I’m so glad I ate here instead of the usual brunch burger! The seasonal menu is fresh and will not disappoint. Frittata and side of roasted potatoes, and avocado toast. All amazing and delightfully fulfilling. Let me tell you...if you like avocado toast, you must go to Hearth. If you don’t like avocado toast, go to Heath and they will make you change your mind about it.
