Hearth '61 at Mountain Shadows Ratings and Reviews
My guests both had the swordfish about which they raved. I had the chicken with a coconut curry lemon grass sauce and it was underwhelming. Rather plainly served and the sauce had almost no flavor. I usually adore the food here but this visit was sub-par for me.
Other than a bit of a disconnect between what was written on the menu and what was served, my family had a very nice experience for NYE brunch. Server Fabiana was gracious and on top of things.
Could improve overall cleanliness especially at the bar. I'll check for that the next time we go.
They had a sent menu for Xmas and the portions were extremely small and cold when it arrived. Our table was drafty and they couldn't fix that. It was very over priced for what we recieved.
I wasn't very busy so they could have let people order off the menu. When I called to make the reservation we asked if we would need to order the duck in advance. We were told that it's no problem and should be able to accommodate our party
After having a good experience here one time, I inquired about the Christmas Day menu and was told by the manager and our waitress it would be the regular menu plus additional holiday specials. The menu looked good so I switched my Christmas family dinner reservations from T Cooks which was a prefix menu to Hearth 61. Big mistake!
Christmas dinner with extended family from Southern California and locally. When we arrived we were informed that it was a prefix menu and the regular menu was not available. Food, service and the table we were given were aweful. We requested one of the tables in the back but they squeezed 7 of us together right at the noisy kitchen at a table for 6 while the back tables remained empty the entire 3+ hours we were there. Yes, the service was painfully slow to get our 3 course TV dinner quality meals. After 3 hours we still hadn’t received our desert so I flagged one of the waiters telling him we needed to go.
Perhaps they sat us at the kitchen because we had a small child who incidentally didn’t make a peep.
It would have been worth the wait if the food was decent but it was unbelievably disappointing and sloped on random mismatched plates. I was shocked and embarrassed that I brought everyone there for our special holiday reunion celebration.
The service and food are excellent. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about wines and the menu. The ambience and lighting were great. There is an outside patio which is nice in the warmer weather to hang out before while waiting for your table or an after dinner drink.
We has a wonderful dinner here. The beef short rib agnolotti is a must, also the prime rib fantastic. Notable wine list many of our faves. Portions were perfect. Timing of dishes was spot on. Service was fantastic and knowledgeable on all items. Leave room for dessert.
The food was delicious, though wrongly called a buffet. I think of a buffet as a help yourself, where this was already selected food (as listed) and served in a plate, by a waiter. I was also surprised that it was titled "Thanksgiving Buffet", however, we had to pay extra for the pumpkin pie dessert.
The waiter and hostess were friendly and efficient and overall we had a lovely time and will certainly come back.
Wanted to find a different place to spend the night before Thanksgiving (which is kind of a holiday here in the valley) and this is our new spot. Tuna tartare was excellent as was the pesto for the warm bread which you can’t get enough of. Not sure I would get the short rib pasta again... it was good just not great. My husband enjoyed his beef tenderloin but a little more rare than he normally enjoys his medium cooked steak. The bar area looked to be happening with live music. We’ll go earlier next time and eat a little later.
Despite a nearly empty restaurant, service was very slow. Two dishes prepared incorrectly. Drinks delayed unreasonably long. Food underwhelming. The level of food and service do not reflect the level of luxury for this hotel, nor for this location on camelback. And don’t call it a brunch. It is an extremely limited breakfast menu served past noon. Not the same thing.
Wonderful evening as we were excited to see the new setting and experience the restaurants. Service was wonderful, Staff incredibly friendly. They did not have the wine that was on their menu but our second choice ended up being amazing, so it all worked out.
I wanted to like this new restaurant, but unfortunately, it's not at all on a par with other hotel restaurants in similar properties in Scottsdale. And absolutely the RUDEST hostess ever! This is what the hotel wants to leave as a "welcoming" impression??
The waitress was kind, our salads were just OK. The valet was smacking things into car doors left and right!
I think this place needs lots more fine tuning and a training program for their employees.
This was our first time at the new restaurant and we found the food and the setting to be very nice. We had an early reservation so we were among the first seated. The next 5 parties to arrive were seated right around us although the dining room is quite large. Unfortunately one of the parties included a very cute 2 year old who should have been in bed. It brought our evening to an abrupt close. It appeared that there were plenty of staff for the whole dining room so the reason to cluster us all together was not evident.
We will never come here again. I ordered scallops which were so small I could hardly see them on the plate. My husband ordered a steak, which he said was ok. We ordered a side of potatoes,and the waitress told us that there was enough for two. Wrong, there was hardly enough for one. We did not order a salad before the entree because they were not normal salads. They give you one piece of bread to start with and very stingy with giving you some more. The waitress was so nonchalant, and so unprofessional for a place like that. They also bring you something on a small plate , but do not tell you what it is. They said when I asked it was some pork thing. The view is nice, but that is all.
Was very disappointed with our visit. It was my wife and I and one other table in the entire restaurant. We are no where near food snobs and this is actually the first review I have written due to how poor the food was. Our server was very nice however that was the only good part about our meal there
Very upbeat atmosphere. Liked the overall contemporary look. Food was outstanding, especially the swordfish. It was good to see Mountain Shadows back in business. Still work to be done on the property, but it appears to be headed in the right direction. Appreciated the complimentary valet parking.
Dining for me is more than just the food, it's the whole experience. I love the mid century decor of the restaurant which was great both inside and out on the patio that overlooked the pool. Great view of the mountains. Service was excellent and so was the menu of choices. We took advantage of the restaurant week menu and it did not disappoint (especially compared to the other restaurants we visited this past week for restaurant week- by far this was my favorite!) The flat iron steak was a surprise- loved it and I usually only like a filet, and the sea bass was to die for! All around amazing experience. Had fun strolling through the resort after dinner to see the artwork on display and black and white pictures of shadow mountain resort back in the day. A true gem!
My husband and I went here for a celebratory dinner.
The room is beautiful with creative, rather hip, but tasteful interior design.
The ambience is elegant but not too formal; cocktail attire or jeans would both be appropriate.
The dishes were all artfully presented with attention to aesthetics and taste.
For example, the soup was served in individual hand-thrown glazed pottery bowls (the waiter warned us that the outside surface was very hot, and he was right).
I am not sure if the bowls were heated before pouring in the soup, or if the soup alone caused the bowls to be so hot.
In any case, the thickness and material of the bowls served to insulate the soup, thereby keeping it at the optimal temperature for a longer time.
We chose all vegetarian options.
We both had the delicious Lentil Soup (with vegetable broth, melted leeks, sofrito).
Then we split the Charred Eggplant & Ancient Grains entree (very rich but fantastic).
We also split sides of the Heirloom Cauliflower (with golden raisin & caper gremolata) and Charred Young Broccoli (with lemon shallot butter, shaved parmesan).
Both vegetables were perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Our third side, Ginger Carrots (with tahini yogurt, chervil), featured a lovely mound of multi-color baby carrots, and was perhaps the prettiest dish of the night. In my opinion, the carrots were a little overcooked, but my husband thought otherwise.
Our dinner was reasonable for the food quality, setting and service.
The lentil soup and and the generously sized (easily each 2 or more servings) vegetable sides cost approximately $9 each and the vegetarian entree was $20 (and we took home plenty of leftovers for another night's meal).
Complimentary amuse-bouche, excellent bread with pesto, and a pair of delicious macaroons (presented at the end, with the check) were nice surprises and added to the overall value.
The service was well timed and the staff was consistently friendly, knowledgable and helpful.
We will be back!
So, we were very disappointed, we meet monthly for lunch somewhere, always trying new places. Several of us ordered a salad with beef tenderloin, lots of salad, but hard to find the beef! That was $18.00 for salad. One of the other ladies had to return her food to the kitchen, the eggplant was charred, the staff was great and brought her a new plate.Noise was high, there was another larger group meeting and only a thin curtain to separate from the other diners.
There was no view! Maybe when the cooler weather comes dinning outside by the pool might be better, but, we won't go back there, too many other great choices.
Last night's dinner was the second time in four weeks we have dined at this restaurant. The first time was dinner for two and we ordered a bottle of champagne. The server informed us the cooler was malfunctioning and he was going to put the champagne on ice and chill it. So it was likely a bad bottle that would be cold! He also forgot to key in our order for our entrees so it took an additional 20 minutes to receive them. The restaurant bought us dessert. Last night's dinner the restaurant overcharged us. The computer's entree cost was $4.00 higher than the menu pricing. When I called to speak to the manager about the discrepancy, the Mountain Shadows' main phone line never connected me directly to the restaurant. I tried four times to be transferred and the phone went nowhere. When I asked to speak to the executive office, they grilled me for my name and phone number (at the front desk and it was none of their business). Moral of the story is that this restaurant has a long way to go to be satisfactory for Paradise Valley or anywhere for that matter. A diner would be ill-advised to try this restaurant for anything beyond happy hour and even that I would be careful. Not returning. I'll cook macaroni and cheese on my stove first.
Hearth 61 has been open since April 2017 according to our waiter. Since that time they have really gotten everything together with excellent food and service. We both requested medium rare Prime Rib which was spot on delicious. Wine by the glass was generous and menu selections for appetizers, sides and desserts offered an adventurous dining experience.
We look forward to an early return.
Service was very slow. Waitress apologized for it. Apparently, they sat five tables at the same time in her area. Food was very good. Too pricey for what you get and the experience. It really is no more than a nice restaurant at a nice resort. Nothing special, unfortunately, for locals.
