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.

Everything we ordered was incredibly fresh, delicious, and thoughtful. The service was excellent and ambiance was warm, romantic, and chic. Perfect place for dinner with friends or a romantic night out. Easily one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

Our group of 5 had the most wonderful experience at Hearth. We made the decision to dine here last minute and couldn’t be happier with the choice. We all ordered the restaurant week menu plus wine pairings. Highlights were the garlic beard, gnocchi, and meatballs. Nathan was a fabulous server! We will be back.

Always good. Hearth is just down the block from me but even if it were far away, I'd still dine here regularly. The food is consistently top-notch, as is the wine list and the service (our waiter thoughtfully asked the bartender to make an old drink from their previous cocktail menu for us as I missed it). This is one of the best sure bets for consistency of quality, service, and value. It can get noisy when it's busy, but you will always have an excellent meal here.

The bone broth with what tasted like cilantro oil amuse-bouche was out-of-this world. But why would they charge $2 per person for bread that’s a little bit sour than most, and the butter’s not even freshly made like Razza in Jersey City. The gnocchi was ethereal. Grilled octopus with butter beans and pesto was to-die-for although a bit salty. Maccheroni definitely a crowd pleaser. Wine pairing a little bit skimpy and needs a bit of work. Solicitous waiters. Luv the sassy hostess.

Food was extremely disappointing, maybe because they made a cheap menu for restaurant week but definitely not worth it at all.

Have eaten at Hearth twice now (dinner), and the second time was even better than the first. This was one of the first "farm to table" restaurants in NYC, and more than 15 years later it's still going strong. They maximize the use of seasonal ingredients, and work to find the essence of taste and texture in everything they prepare. Vegetables are featured players, not afterthoughts slapped on the plate next to a main course. it is friendly to restricted diets, and they are happy to adjust things to suit dietary restrictions. At our recent dinner i loved a dish of sauteed (very fresh) squid with green beans, white beans, and pickled garlic scapes in a cool pesto dressing. I also enjoyed a wonderful roasted spatchcock chicken (pan roasted under a brick?), with sauteed chard in a delicious jus. The staff make great recommendations for wine, and they have a simple and inventive cocktail menu. The ambiance is 1930s farm/rustic, with mismatched vintage china and glasses. All-in-all a lovely experience

I planned a 40th surprise birthday party at Hearth for my sister and I cannot sign this establishment's praises enough. They were warm, caring, extremely communicative and detail oriented. The team was in constant communication with me and so incredibly flexible when it came to dietary restrictions and suggestions when it came to the menu. I was blown away by the professionalism and accommodation in a very short time frame to throw the party. The space looked perfect and so inviting and our waiter Jefferson even made a point to speak in French with my family after I had indicated that we were originally from France. We even had fun waiting at the bar where the bartender was sure to suggest a nice drink to quell my surprise party nerves and told me that everything would go perfectly and not to worry. Every single guest left the restaurant saying that they couldn't wait to go back. Hearth - thank you for making my sister's 40th birthday party a memorable and a DELICIOUS experience.

An amazing experience. Food was delicious- there was nothing we did not absolutely enjoy. The whole fish was outstanding.
Our guests had extreme allergies - wheat, nuts, dairy, eggs and canola oil! The staff was incredible and accommodating.

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.

Interesting but limited Sunday brunch menus. Nevertheless, a nice selection of vegan, vegetarian and meat based.
Service was excellent. Ordered cook books written by the cheff which they arranged to have sent our home in DC.

Third time here..previous couple of times were so much better and were clearly of much better value. Tasting menu was disappointing and the amount of time in between courses was far too long.
