It was a special menu and awesome! Chef put together wonderful tastes. Such a fine dining experience. We love Hearth!
Hearth is arguably the best restaurant in Evanston. The location is impeccable (even free parking is generally available) and the service is top-notch. The servers are attentive without being intrusive and we never felt rushed in any way. We were there for a wedding anniversary (mentioned in our Open Table reservation), which was acknowledged by the staff with a complimentary glass of bubbly (cava if my taste bud are right). We had the zucchini fritter for an open, which I liked quite a lot and would get again. And for our mains, my wife got the duck breast and I got the pork collar, both of which were cooked to perfection. These are both cuts that can be overcooked but that was absolutely not done here. The plating and flavors were outstanding. Please understand that while this is not full-on "fine dinning" (like the other restaurants that preceded them in this location) it is still "high end" and you pay for that. You most certainly get value, but it will not be a moderately priced meal.
Definitely a "special occasion" place, but we will be back.
Food and presentation was top notch. Charming and cozy room in an historic building. Will definitely return soon.
I took my wife to Hearth for her birthday. The staff was very friendly. The service was excellent and very attentive but not obtrusive. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable about the menu and helpful. The food was served promptly, but we were not rushed at all. Each dish was quite good. My wife had wild mushroom soup and duck for a main course. I had a beet salad and skate wing. Everything was very well prepared. We shared a dessert and the staff remembered to bring it out with a candle as we celebrated. There was one group which was fairly loud, but my wife and I could carry on a conversation with no problem hearing. The ambiance is quite warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend and return to Hearth.
Food was superb as always and service was extremely attentive. Best part is that the 4 of us could converse and hear each other.
Food and service were excellent. We also liked that fact that, though the restaurant was crowded, we could talk to each other without having to shout. We will definitely return.
Innovative food. Well prepared. Quiet atmosphere but not romantic. Nice porch for pre- or post-dinner meal.
We went to Hearth a couple of years ago and returned for Mother's Day. It was excellent. Great recommendations by staff, innovative cocktails, eclectic and delicious menu. Hope to return!
One of our favorite places for a delicious meal in peace. The staff is the best: professional. yet warm. Highly recommend if you like excellent food and want to be able to hear your dinner-mates.
We had an awesome time and the food was delicous. The server was outstanding and he made us feel at home. We loved celebrating my husband's 50th birthday there.
We were given, I believe, was their only booth which is in an odd corner without any ambiance.
Our server was excellent and so were our cocktails which were hearty in capacity. I had loin of lamb which was prepared rare, as I preferred.
This is a great place for anniversary or first date. Excellent food and able to hear people at your table.
Nice separate bar room before or after dinner.
Disappointing. Brunch entrees weren’t price I was told over the phone. Also had been told they could do dessert and candle for a friends birthday but they weren’t even serving dessert. Food wasn’t spectacular considering the price. Waiter was very attentive. The only saving grace. Considering all of the great dining options in Evanston, this was ho hum
Very best shrimp and grits I ever had! Being from the South and my previous business taking me to New Orleans monthly, that’s saying a lot!!!
Hope you bring back Sunday brunches!
Very good place for family dinner or a cozy dinner with your loved one. Very good quality of food and service. Their cocktails are refreshing and not very common. Overall I will highly recommend and I will visit again.
The food was creatively prepared and it all worked really well together. The ambiance is okay but the servers are attentive. We will be back.
Nice food, great service. Overall a very pleasant experience. Unpretentious, friendly staff and impressive food. Bread, starters, main courses, and dessert were all distinctive and delicious. There were three of us and we all agreed that we'll be back.
Love the bar area. Zach is wonderful waitstaff
wonderful food enhanced by wonderful service in a beautiful room
Duck breast was excellent, short ribs with pasta was average. Bartender is one of the best in Evanston. Service is exceptional in the dining room and the bar.
Food was nothing special and waiter was inattentive and snarky. Limited strange menu. Definitely will not return. Woody was a great chef and we used to go a lot. Sad.
Receive complimentary glasses of champagne. Thank you!
A bit pretentious but pleasant enough. The food was good but not very good much less great. The main courses are overpriced relative to the level of the tastes. It cost us around $90 for 2 without drinks ( water only) and the value of what we had was closer to $50.
Consistently good food and service. Quiet and conversation friendly.
This is really a hidden gem. Every bite is amazing. I had the Crispy Buffalo Mozzarella appetizer and the pork collar entree. I would have licked each plate, but that would be rude. The cocktails are innovative and wonderful, lots of wines by the glass. My husband got venison for the second time because he can't make himself get anything else. He loves it. Wait staff is completely knowledgeable about every item on the menu and very low key and helpful. The atmosphere is calm and inviting and they have a cute cocktail lounge too. Can't say enough good things about Hearth.
Excellent menu, great ambiance, good service. One of my favorite Evanston restaurants.
My favorite restaurant in Evanston! Never disappoints!
Great food. Nice quiet atmosphere for conversation.
Wonderful dinner and great experience overall. Very friendly staff but not to the point of being annoying. Food is always wonderful. Atmosphere is so relaxing. Just a great place.
Great overall experience! Highly recommended Hearth!
We loved Hearth.
Bar was much better ambiance then restaurant, maybe adjust restaurant to match bar.
We will be back.
Zack- bartender was excellent
Delicious food. Excellent service. Love the ambiance.
Interesting menu - fusion of several cultures but everything we ate was perfectly prepared with interesting sauces for a delicious final product.
Unfortunately, they were overbooked on Valentine's Day. Our reservation was for 7:45 pm, and we were not seated until 8:30 pm, which made us late for the babysitter when we did finally get home. When we first arrived at 7:40 pm, we were told that the couple at our table was "about to leave". So we stood around and waited. Then we sat around and waited. And after a half-hour had passed, we finally decided to buy a drink at the bar. No one tried to update us about the status of our table until our names were called 45 min. later. And we still paid full price for the cocktails and meal, as though this 45 min. delay was perfectly acceptable to them. It appeared that several couples that arrived after us got seated sooner than we did, so it is not clear that their seating policy is very fair.
But the food and cocktails were top-notch once we were finally seated.
Fixed price menu was scrumptious...and in addition to the four main courses, several extras thrown in. Particularly liked the complex flavors in the duck dumpling, and ditto the squid ink pasta with crab. Paired wine selections made the food even better...especially the Grgich Hills Merlot. Of course, the sommelier's narrative made the wine even better. Our server Robb, as always, makes us feel as special as the food. Been there several times now--twice Valentine's Day, and once just the regular menu. Never disappointed. Not cheap. But good value. If I could change one thing: table clothes, for Valentines Day, at least. But they had candles on the table, the atmosphere was otherwise very special, and it's nice to put the laundry costs towards food/service and reduce pollution, so I can definitely live with that. (Speaking of which, loved that the doggie bags were recyclable paper, vs. plastic or aluminum. Yay!)
Interesting menu, except for the necessity to have lots of obscure foods and food terms defined. Always well cooked and attractively presented. Friendly attentive service. On a busy night, the noise level is a little high. Some seats are less prone to noise--ask.
Probably the best meal we've had on the North Shore in quite some time! Great service, nice wine list, great menu. Food was terrific.
Food was great. We were seated in a small room with a large loud party who spent the night shouting an d screaming an d shrieking. Their behavior ruined our dinner
Good value for restaurant week. Food excellent. A little drafty by the window
Hearth has it all: Elevated but very accessible and delicious food; warm friendly service; and an inviting atmosphere. We love Hearth and will be back for sure!
