The food was very mediocre for the price, but the service was just awful. The staff didn’t seem experienced or knowledgable, rather frazzled and spread thin. I was literally waving my arms and still couldn’t get our waitress’s attention.

Service and quality are outstanding! We stayed at Mountain Shadows for a staycation and decided to try Hearth ‘61 for dinner. I am so happy we did! Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable, helping with wine recommendations. We ended up going with a glass of rosé and a glass of Malbec and both were exactly what we were looking for. The food was so delicious - we started with the heirloom tomato salad to split, I ordered the filet and my boyfriend ordered the scallops for our entrees, and we ended on the apple tart. Every bite was memorable and we cannot wait to try more dishes!

First time at Hearth 61. Attentive service, great food. Amazing view of Camelback Mountain. The restaurant is brand new and inside a new and very fashionable hotel. The duck confit is a must. I’d expect Hearth 61 to be packed in high season, however, we were fortunate to be there when it was moderately full of patrons on a sleepy Sunday evening. The bar looked amazing too, with plenty of couches and comfortable settings in which to gather friends and enjoy. Definitely will be on our list in the future.

Service was spot on. Food was excellent, except for the lamb that was ordered medium well but came out extremely rare. The manager, Jared, was attentive and took care of the issue. The bread pudding is excellent! This was our 3rd time here and has quickly become one of our favorite places to dine in Phoenix

We always love your food & professional staff. Our dinner night just happened to be when you also had a huge party of people. You put them in the back part of the restaurant but No One in the restaurant could carry on a conversation because they were over the top loud. I appreciate the fact they dropped big bucks, but please consider adding some baffling &/or install some fan-fold doors for such large gatherings. We couldn't hear each other at our little table for two celebrating my girlfriends birthday. We were encouraged to move to the bar.... really. We didn't.
Aside from that your food was excellent and we will return. We were also staying at your hotel for three days.

Server was not very enthusiastic. Food was mediocre, although the swordfish was very good. Restaurant was having a wine tasting event, which increased the noise level. Wine list is extensive, but pricey.

went for sunday brunch--room was bright, service excellent, menu choices limited but adequate--complimentary scones were light and scrumptious and the use of niman ranch and schreiner products was a definite plus--banana pancakes were delicious and enough for two meals--eggs benedict with truffle hollandaise was also delicious --would definitely return

Lovely atmosphere with a mid century modern vibe. The service was exceptional as was the food. Unfortunately my entree was super salty, but they offered to bring me another which I declined, and they did take it off our check. All the other food we were service was fantastic. Dennis was our waiter and did a wonderful job. We will definitely go there again.

We have been here several times, but this time the food was mediocre. We always highly recommended people come here but this time, would only recommend with very limited parameters -- scenery, nostalgia. Our crabcakes were not good, brisket common place, and key lime a bit grainy. The beet salad had two beets in it that were root-ish (the root fibers were not pared away), thus I had to try and pare the beet sections to reach the fleshy part. Sadly, the price is too hefty to dine when the food is not top notch.

Not our first visit, so I was disappointed the menu had not changed and the 'seasonal' dishes were still winter at best. We had to repeatedly ask for cocktail menu/daily specials/wines by the glass info.

Our server was meh at best and we had to repeatedly ask someone to find her. Empty dishes sat for far too long and the restaurant was far from busy. The live music was a great touch.

We came here for restaurant week to see the beautiful and perfect view of Camelback Mountain and enjoy the ambiance. The beet salad was good. My girlfriend ate the salmon with sun jokes and artichoke chimichurri and she thought it was good. The best part was the salmon itself. I ate the prime tenderloin with mushroom demi glaze and truffle mash. The steak was excellent with the glaze. The truffle mash was light on the truffle flavor. My girlfriend ate the flourless chocolate cake. The coffee used was low to average quality and overpowered the dessert. I ate the bread pudding. It was bland throughout all components. The ice cream was weak in the vanilla beans. The brioche was weak in the flavor. This ended the meal on a low note.

Went for restaurant week. Food was excellent. Service was so-so at best. Waitress mixed up Vodka/tonic and Gin/tonic. Smelled them to tell them apart and got it wrong. Didn't seem to know the dishes well. Drinks were very expensive and 2 drinks apiece doubled the bill. Would go back for the food but only for special occasion.

We were pleasantly surprised by the ambience. Just a lovely May evening with agreeable temperatures (we requested outdoor seating). There were four of us and three of us love to cook and are fairly discriminating when it comes to restaurant food. Its was great. I had the scallops that were cooked perfectly and the preparation was substantial enough to not need an extra side. The others had the lamb (maybe a bit too rare for the medium temp. requested) but delicious, the prime rib (delicious), and the salmon (also very good). We had the calamari appetizer that was very nicely done. Just a terrific evening and we could hear each other talk! What a treat.

I took my parents here for Mother's Day brunch. The brunch menu is normally moderately priced, but for Mother's Day it was a $79 buffet with entree (which the website failed to mention, but I also failed to ask). For the price, you expect the experience to fairly spectacular. The buffet spread was lackluster at best. The food quality was good, but nothing remarkable. I've done a number of high end special occasion buffets ($50-$100/person) and you usually look at the spread and feel overwhelmed. Not the case here. Standard omelet station, prime rib carving, fruit, salad, and shrimp.

Although the meal itself was nothing great, the real reason for the 1 star rating was the service. On arrival, we were seated right away despite being early for our reservation. However, after being sat, we waited 15 minutes to order our drinks and another 10 minutes for them to be delivered. We went ahead and ordered our entree when the drinks arrived, but the waiter did not put them in and 30 minutes later came back to ask what we had ordered. Because we were still working on buffet items, the timing was not a big problem, but was surprised that he not only didn't put the order in yet, but hadn't remembered or written it down. To top it off, our coffee and water was often empty and we had to ask bus staff for new silverware for desert. All of these would normally not be a big deal, but at $79/person, you expect the service to be top notch. To top it all off, despite being 3 people, he applied auto gratuity of 20%. This equated to a $50 tip for a waiter that visited our table a total of 4 times throughout our stay. I've received better service at a slammed greasy spoon than I did here for a high end Mother's Day brunch. If going for a special meal, save your money or try Wrigley Mansion, that place will knock your socks off.

I called the resort because it looked from the website they only offer brunch on the weekend and no lunch. The person I spoke to said they did offer lunch after the brunch is over at 2:30. Not true. They close until dinner at 5:00. We had a 2:30 reservation but the waiter made a point of telling us the kitchen was closed down and implied we had to hurry up and order. Rude. Everyone else working there was super nice. Probably just one bad apple. The food was good but not sure I’ll be back.

This was our first visit. Visually stunning Modern environment and the staff are very nice. However the food was dramatically disappointing. The menu looks great but the dishes were under seasoned and failed to deliver. I tried four appetizers and two entrées and we had a group of six people. This executive chef needs to get in the kitchen and address everything from menu design to dish execution. At these prices one would not expect a complete lack of seasoning and bland food
