Great experience all around. Very special place for a special occasion. Delicious food and service.
Small and cozy, this is a terrific spot to go to for a special meal that is well prepared with quality ingredients. The folks who work here are friendly and gracious, the dishes are delicious, the cocktails are imaginative and tasty, and the desserts are imaginative. We enjoyed the popcorn ice cream, be sure to leave room to try it! Oh, and don’t forget to order a biscuit. Really tasty.
A gem of a dining experience, always something very special, delicious and unique.
I've eaten here several times and its always a great meal with great service.
Amazing inventive dishes. Such a treat!
We ate outside so I can't comment on the noise volume inside. Food was excellent. Seasonal, beautiful, great flavors. Loved the raspberry chocolate (chunk) ice cream for dessert. An edited but thoughtful wine list. We'll be back.
Always a welcoming place regardless of the season. The food (esp. the vegetarian) is innovative and respectful of the ingredients. There is always an element of fun and whimsy in the drinks (thanks Ally!) and we always walk away wondering how long we have to wait before we go again.
One of the best meals I have had in a long time. I was in town on conference and it was great to see such wonderful service and food again! Great job to the chef and her team
Excellent meal! The tables are too close together and we had to find the waitress a couple of times otherwise it would have been 5 star.
The tasting menu is back - but just for four seats at the counter. Reserve early! You won't find anything better in Boston.
Really good, creative food and excellent service. Highly recommended!
Loved that they were so accommodating with my celiac disease!
Excellent service and food. Creative menu. They flavors they put together were unexpected but delicious. We sat outdoors at night in late October and they had heat lamps and brought us blankets, which was an amazing touch. My 12 yo son left his bread (which he had coveted, they were so great) and when he ran back to get them 20 minutes later, they gave him a couple of extra. Just an overall lovely experience.
Our first visit to Urban Hearth was lovely. Grilled oysters topped with bacon, enormous, flaky biscuits, and pappardelle topped with duck leg and foie butter all delivered on their promises. Our server was warm and attentive. The outdoor space was surprisingly cozy--well insulated from the street and surrounding sidewalk, and equipped with heat lamps, pleasant lighting and blankets we never needed. We'll be back soon.
Love the food that Chef Erin and her team puts together, the flavor combinations of spices and seasonings are original and work really well. The cocktails are also delicious. If you are looking for a special dinner, this team will deliver. The restaurant is small, so reservations are crucial.
Everything was amazing. However, I don't understand their indoor eating policy. It looks like they're trying to limit the amount of indoor eating but how?
Urban Hearth continues to be our go-to for a fancy night out in the neighborhood. The outdoor seating has been expanded as of fall 2021, with a high barrier to cut down street noise. As always, the food, cocktails, and wine offerings were superb.
Overpriced, flavorless food.
Wonderful varied gourmet menu with excellent wine selection and friendly efficient staff
Erin and Paul continue to dazzle with creative and delicious dishes.
Just had a lovely outdoor dinner at Urban Hearth. The menu is limited but the food was exceptional. The entrees were definitely on the pricey side but very very good. Though we didn't have wine, the wine list looked fairly comprehensive. Would absolutely recommend.
Delicious food and excellent service in this charming neighborhood spot. The staff exudes a chill, relaxed energy while being very attentive.
Wonderful all around!
The food was different in a very good way. The chef used ingredients and flavors I had not experienced before. The seasoning on the food was perfect. Save room for dessert. It had a ton of ingredients in it, ie coffee cardamom ice cream, ginger cake, brambleberry sauce, coconut crisps etc., but somehow they all worked together. It can be a little pricey if you are having drinks. The wait staff was great!
Great food, outdoor dining is next to a main road so not as quiet as a backyard patio, very nice to enjoy as long as you are aware of that.
Fabulous !! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Thoughtfully designed dishes in a thoughtfully designed atmosphere, with amazing staff and a great vibe
Creative menu, delicious food, and accommodating service. We sat on the patio so there was some traffic noise but this didn't detract from the experience. I also really appreciated waitstaff willingness to add an unexpected guest to the table (I forgot to count myself when reserving the table - lol).
Just an overall wonderful experience. The outstanding food and drinks were prepared with love and care and the service made you feel at home.
Food and service were excellent. Outdoor seating only, so right on Mass. Ave. and noisy - not the fault of the restaurant, which had no other place to seat outdoors.
A very nice and inventive food joint in the middle of (formerly) nowhere. Recommended to everyone in the vicinity.
Wonderful tasty dishes, small plates with big flavors! Lovely knowledgeable service.
Very quickly becoming my favorite restaurant anywhere. Such a gem, for a small local restaurant, packs a mighty punch on food & drink innovation backed by a sustainable farm to table mantra and a clear love to make people happy. I never cease to be amazed at their culinary wizardry, appreciate the terrific service and inviting ambience. They put clear effort into everything they do and it shows.
Everything I have ever had here is amazing and invites me to go beyond my typical comfort zone, but do yourself a favor and try at least one biscuit. I would dare say the best nuggets of goodness on the planet.
Everything was absolutely delicious, and the service was incredible. Would absolutely recommend!!!
Michelin star worthy food and cocktail. Loved vegan choices
This restaurant continues to astound and amaze me. It is so clear how much they care about delivering a wonderful experience. The food is as inventive and delicious as I could ever imagine, often enticing me beyond my comfort zone of adventure. Always fresh ingredients for food and cocktails alike, you will not be disappointed. The service is impeccable and the ambiance perfect for a nice evening out.
Everything was really unique and delicious. Will definitely return.
