First time there with another couple. Very disappointed with the experience. First, they were out of the wine we wanted (St innocent Pinot Noir). Our server asked if we wanted bread and brought us each a delicious warm roll but never asked if we wanted more bread. The white bean soup and tuna tartare were very good, but the portion of the tuna was extremely small for the price. As for entrees, the portion of scallops was miniature, the steak mediocre, the venison tough and lacking flavor and the short ribs very good. For dessert, 3 of us ordered a scoop of ice cream which was a quarter scoop at best but delicious. The bread pudding was fine. All of us dine out frequently and all of us rated this restaurant as overly priced for uneven food and extremely small portions. A nice ambiance but we cannot recommendation Hearth st all.

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We were family celebrating a belated birthday. Our wishes for no fanfare were honored. We did not feel rushed. I assume no one else did either because most were there when we arrived and left just before we did near to closing time.

We came here for Valentine's Day Prix Fixe. Usually, that's a challenging time to dine, and restaurants aren't at their best. But Hearth was amazing! Every course was a delight--taste, and appearance. The wine pairings went well with the food, and were at a good value. Service was outstanding--not just fast and friendly, but also very well informed about the food and wine, so very much a learning experience. Very pleasant ambiance...we were in a room with a view of a snow-covered yard. Wow. We will have to go again. (And again!) Our new "best in Evanston" restaurant.

Terrific experience! Food was creative but not fussy. Beautiful presentations. The service was impeccable and their wine pairings were interesting/perfect. We will definitely return.

We had the $65 prix fixe four course dinner on Valentine's Day.
Every course was delicious and interesting. This chef clearly knows how to combine flavors, textures and ingredients in a way that is both delicious and harmonious. Great food, service and ambience without costing a fortune. Highly recommended !

We loved everything from apps to dessert. Especially the orange sorbet with mint. The only (minor but it was noticed by all four of us)negative was it was a bit too warm in the dining room. We were furthest from the fire. It was Saturday February 10th. We will be back!

Terrific food and Greg is a fantastic server. Wish we could have been in the main room, but the meal was so good it didn’t matter much.

Was really surprised because we’ve had so many good meals there, but we heard the chef had changed. The appetizer was very good, the mains were ridiculously salty, and the dessert was blah.

The cozy low-lit dining room with fireplace was perfect on a cold, snowy evening. All dishes were delicious and well presented. The staff was attentive and friendly. First time here - will definitely be back and I've already recommended Hearth to friends and coworkers.

Our waiter was great. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend the cocktails and the restaurant week menu was awesome. I had the trout and it was so good my wife ordered a piece on the side of her meal. You can definitely tell the chef had a flavor profile/theme in mind, but everything was great!
