Recently had a wonderful dinner at the Hearth. The appetizers, cocktails, main entrée and dessert were all fabulous with wonderful textures and flavors. I highly recommend this restaurant which in addition to great food has attentive service and good ambiance. Fun for getting together with friends and family or for date nite.

Hearth continues to be a wonderful neighborhood and regional spot. It has one of those menus where you'd like to say "One of each, please." Three people in our party had scallops, one had the lamb. Everyone was happy. Variety of starters and chocolate tart for dessert similarly received. My wine-maven friend really liked the wine choices and their prices.

Altho it met most of the criteria & recommendation as for "a convenient rendezvous place for a quiet dinner", I cannot agree with the 'dinner' component, I could not recommend it as a place to enjoy anything unique or outstanding in the food dept. There is a quiet...almost empty.... bar across the hall, if all you wanted was a drink. I thought the risotto was slightly under-done & somewhat boring. I could barely taste the cheese within. I've had better tasting cornbread from a box. My scallops were properly cooked through, but needed some kind of flavor. The bed of brown unidentifiable legume bed for them was similar. My wife said the rib entry was flavorful but tough. Four medium sized scallops & 1/2 cup max for it made for a small entry (come on guys, lentils or whatever are cheap! The dessert choices were few & nothing seemed desirable. The "homemade" orange sorbet needed more orange flavor. Altho it was only $4/tablespoon full, for $8 for a real "scoop" I would have felt ripped off. It confirmed my hypothesis that 'don't bother with dessert if the entries are ordinary'.
I left hungry for my $45/person without alcohol.

Expert food preparation and presentation far exceeded all expectations.
The place is intimate and the noise level is minimal, even when pretty full.
The value is outstanding. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

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.

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!

Not sure how this restaurant has gotten so many good reviews. Terrible experience. The food was completely bland. The portion sizes were way too small. The service was extremely slow, and the waiter acted like he didn't even want to be there. The best thing eaten at this restaurant was the free bread. This place is super pretentious. I will never go back. Garbage!

I came here with my partner during Restaurant Week. We chose Hearth because of all the Evanston restaurants participating in Restaurant Week, Hearth had the most interesting and varied menu offerings. The atmosphere is very warm and festive and elegant yet the service is down to earth and friendly without being stuffy. Loved each of the 3 courses we sampled and the service was top notch

We had gone a few weeks back and enjoyed it so much that we decided to celebrate a birthday with 6 other friends. Nobody was disappointed, they handled our party of 8 without any problem. Our server was terrific and the food was outstanding. We started in the bar and met the GM who was very warm and friendly, we were then seated right on time and from there everything was perfect. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
