Hearth Ratings and Reviews
Incredibly poor, inattentive service, very disappointing food quality -- fatty small lamb chop--??? We had to ask to get water & the basics..no one checked in with us about the meal; the server never thanked us for coming...no one noted that we left.
Way overpriced for the meal quality and service experience.
Dinner at the Hearth was a birthday celebration. Our server was EXCELLENT; at our request he offered valuable advice re menu items and wines, balanced attentiveness with discretion, and at the end of the meal surprised us with a scrumptious birthday confection. Cannot say enough in support of this restaurant, that is such a valuable community asset.
It all starts when you walk in, if the staff isn't friendly right from the beginning then it sets the tone for the rest of the meal. In the case of Hearth, the staff is great; they are welcoming and friendly. Our server, Robb, was the best. Very helpful, relaxed and friendly. He made several suggestions (at our request!) which turned out to be right on, the food and wine was great. We will be back, thank you.
We went for New Year's Eve, and had the tasting menu with the matching wines. The food was exceptionally good (ceviche of mussels, ravioli with duck, wonderful rack of lamb, a chocolate mousse concoction); the wines, all Italian, were very good, and were poured generously. Chef adapted the dessert to needs of one diner who could not have chocolate, got excellent carrot cake instead. Service was efficient and friendly. We had a quiet, comfortable table in a corner. A memorable evening.
It's a cozy restaurant located in a historic looking hotel, close to downtown Evanston. They have a warm and inviting bar lounge area where you can hang while you wait for your table. The food was very good, small portions but still good. The staff are very friendly and attentative. It's got a small cozy inside of a cabin type of feel inside with small tables, candlelit ambiance and fireplaces. It's a good date spot or a nice special dinner date. The crowd is mostly older locals however, not many under 30ish couples, but still enjoyed the visit.
Took my wife out on a birthday dinner date to Hearth. It’s quite a lovely little spot, nestled inside an Inn. The bar in the front has a fireplace where some guests were just chatting and sharing bottles of wine, quite the ambiance to walk into on a cold night. The food was excellent, I had short ribs, she had scallops. Dirty martinis were dirty and delicious, the glasses of wine were heavy pours. We weren’t too enthused by the dessert menu but having previously mentioned it was my wife’s birthday the waiter brought out some chocolate truffles on the house for us to finish our wine with.
All told Hearth offers a pretty small menu, if any gripe I’d say a couple of seasonal specials would help bump up the selection but we really loved it. See you in the spring on the porch!!
My boyfriend and I have been to Hearth several times at this point and we can never believe how delicious it is, and how inexpensive it is for the caliber of cuisine. It feels like we're getting away with something! It's truly fantastic- everything we've had here has been delicious, even vegetarian options that I thought might just be throw away dishes are incredible. Don't forget dessert! And the bread!
Lovely setting, convenient location, good food. Perfect for a leisurely dinner in a more intimate setting. Appreciated not being rushed by the wait staff. Would strongly recommend that the chef consider increasing portion size of the entrees and salads. Food was tasty.
Valet was also very pleasant.
We had an outstanding meal. My husband and I both ordered the gnocci, which was the best that we have ever had anywhere. We were in the small room, which is not nearly as nice as the main dining room. The endive salad was fabulous also! Highly recommend this restaurant, but would request the main dining room next time.
This was our second year having Thanksgiving Dinner at Hearth. A wonderful meal again. The vegetarian options were interesting and very tasty. The fish was cooked perfectly. The service was very professional, attentive and friendly. Great dining room space, feels cozy.
Generally a nice place. Dining rooms (there are two) have a bad acoustic and are consequently very noisy. Not a place for an intimate romantic dinner. Food and service was also generally very good with one notable exception. The toasts on the Beef Tartare starter arrived burnt. When we questioned the waiter about it, he acted like this was the normal preparation and described the bread as "grilled". Sorry, 50% of the toasts were black. Grilled bread should be brown. Additionally, the waiter never offered to replace the toasts perhaps waiting for us to request it. Frankly, a good waiter would never have brought the plate to the table that way. The portion, by the way, was a bit small compared to the chickpea fries starter. Otherwise the food was quite good especially the brownie dessert.
We were incredibly impressed with our experience are Hearth for my birthday tonight. Our meal was SCRUMPTIOUS, the service was impeccable, and the restaurant was perfect for a special occasion. They even wrote me a card from the staff!! We'll surely be back.
Cozy ambiance albeit a bit loud. We were there for an early Saturday dinner. I had butternut squash gnocchi which was very tasty and my hubby had the duck which was excellent. Parking is tough in this area. Be prepared to pay the $7 valet fee. Overall, a nice dinner.
We enjoyed our evening with two friends and we were staying at hotel .
All staff very friendly and personable and helpful. Our server was very good and took good care of us. We loved the delicious food and and wine list and cocktails. Only complaint was the portion one our friends got when he order the Gnocchi. He felt should have been more especially compared with the amounts that were in our different dishes.
Especially liked the warmth of the fireplace and the cozy and warm ambiance of the restaurant. We will go again when we visit Evanston .
