So delightful. Dining room feels like your in someone’s home. Watch your food being cooked and served right in front of you. Everything was deliciously experimental. Simple straightforward ingredients prepped with just enough of a twist to make it an adventure! Really loved this place and everyone in it! We did the 5 course prix fix with flights. YUM

This was just a beautiful meal. The place is quite small and special in terms of the attentiveness of chefs and wait staff. It wasn’t particularly busy so the noise level was perfect. An intimate and genuine experience with people who truly loved the work they were doing. Eager to take other food loving friends.

Splendid food presented with love from fresh locally sourced food. Combinations novel and unexpected but avoid feeling forced or trendy. Prix-fixe is the way to go. Looking forward to more great things from Erin (and Paul)!

Enjoyable setting, delicious food, friendly service, and well-paced delivery of courses. My wife and I each got the 5-course meal, and it's PLENTY of food, arguably too much once you include the various inter-course amuses (which were still appreciated). We ordered literally the entire menu between us, and shared each dish. Standouts included a peekytoe crab appetizer, a plate of perfectly-roasted vegetables with three sauces, and a corn husk meringue. Cocktails were fine but not spectacular; I'd advise sticking with wine.

This is a lovely little restaurant with exquisite food offerings, set off the beaten path in North Cambridge. The prices fairly reflect the gourmet food. You are not in Harvard Square, Davis Square, or Union Square, but on Mass. Ave in North Cambridge—then again, this area might be up and coming!

The ambiance/interior space could definitely benefit from some brightening, but owners/waitstaff are all very pleasant and knowledgeable, and more than make up for the lack of other diversions. All and all a thumb's up.

Absolutely superb meal! Compared to Giulia, Season to Taste, and even the Tasting Counter where I ate the same weekend Urban Hearth is an amazing restaurant. The food is superb, staff exceptional, cost very reasonable.

What an amazing meal - I can’t say enough good things about this place! We had the three course prix-fix, which also came with a delicious fava bean dip and crudités to start and a small cheese course between our main and dessert. Everything we had was delicious - inventive flavor pairings, fresh ingredients, and beautiful presentation. I didn’t really know what to expect but I was blown away. For appetizers we had the smoked trout and fresh cut pasta, for mains we had the porgy and the quail, and for dessert we had the pistachio semifreddo and the chocolate lava cake. So good! Can’t wait to go back. Unrelated to the food, but the whole block has an adorable row of interesting independent, local stores. Great for picking up gifts.

We keep coming back. Fresh, pleasing innovative flavors, and stunning plating at Urban Hearth never fails both the foodie at heart and those just looking to have a wonderful meal - evening out. The service is always on point and the ambience is perfect both for socializing and just enjoying a delightful meal. A hidden jem.

There is nothing special about this place. The food is okay, nothing to wow about. it is too expensive for what is it. The restaurant look like a hardware store front, you have to walk into the kitchen to get into the bathroom. The waiter was her first day so she was not able to answer questions. The restaurant gave us someone else bill. At the end, we paid $123 per person for 5 courses sampling menu, just simply too expensive. The portion is very small.

Our new favorite restaurant! Well thought out dishes, creative, perfectly cooked and presented. I'm a vegetarian, my husband a pescatarian, and there were multiple dinner options for both of us. We went with the 5 course tasting menu and it was a true display of fine cuisine. We made future reservations before we even left the restaurant!

Urban Hearth is a delicious experience. It is a small restaurant but the dining experience is big. It is a prix fix menu( 3 or 5 courses) and they let you pick your choices however you want. You can also get wine pairings. We did not do a wine pairing but we had a delicious bottle of wine that was unknown to us and different. The restaurant is cozy and the wait staff is terrific. We met the chef and she was outstanding. It’s definitely a gem worth checking out.

This is the best restaurant that I have been to in a long time. The menu is small but consists of too much deliciousness, I was really tempted to order one of everything and committing to a triple shift in the gym the next day. The wine pairing was also very good. #recommended

Had brunch here with a friend last weekend and the food was so fresh and flavorful. We made a reservation but it surprisingly wasn't too crowded which made it feel like a hidden gem! I had the breakfast sandwich and my friend had the cured salmon plate. We both loved what we got!
