I can’t remember the last time I had such a meal. Each dish served was fresh, flavorful, and inventive. I love this place but last night was as good a meal as I’ve had. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked and seasoned. The pasta dish was glorious—fiddlehead ferns, ricotta, mushrooms—it was amazing! The servers were attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. I can’t wait to return.

My wife and I love new experiences and this was top notch! Erin and her staff do a wonderful job and the food is terrific!! The entire staff was very accommodating, since our flight was running late from Chicago, but they were able to hold our spot. It was so fun and interesting to watch the whole kitchen work as a team for the entire restaurant. We highly recommend the Urban Hearth if you are ever in the Boston area and if you can get a spot at the Chef's Table please do, Erin and her team will not disappoint.

We moved to Massachusetts a few months ago from California, in the middle of winter. Finding restaurants we like has been tough. This place is intimate with beautiful and imaginative food, extremely friendly and enthusiastic staff, and a chef/owner who obviously cares deeply about connecting with her staff and the people who dine in her restaurant. The vegetable dishes were so beautifully prepared and filling—we are not vegetarian but I would have not minded having a meatless meal here. The pepita mousse with the combination of parsnips and cauliflower was especially surprising and delicious. We also had a crab pasta dish with a flavor profile that was unfamiliar to me. A combination of seafood, pasta, and nasturtium pesto that I was a little unsure if at first… then ended up wanting to lick the bowl… it was so good! Next time we go I want to sit at the chef’s counter for the tasting menu. The staff were helpful in making a list of other good restaurants to try. This is a place we will be back to repeatedly and plan to introduce friends to this gem of a place. Beautiful.

The wine list is also short but seems well-curated. It has a nice relaxed ambiance (very Cambridge) and a diverse mix of diners. The piped-in music was sometimes annoying — they should keep it lower or just get rid of it. The service was commensurate with the upscale prices.

The dishes let the ingredients shine, and the drinks lists (cocktails, wine, after-dinner drinks) were short but well-chosen and fairly priced. Good service--attentive but not hovering. It is a small space so noise levels were higher than I prefer, but not overwhelming. I plan to be back, perhaps for the chef's tasting menu.

We shared 3 vegetarian dishes and one pasta dish with crab in it. Service was attentive and personable. The andromeda cocktail and all the food was delicious: I'm literally dreaming of celeriac- not something I would have expected! We ran into our neighbors, also out for a birthday-which was an added bit of fun. What a unique fancy dinner in a neighborhood gem.

I dined alone, but enjoyed the ambiance and experience. I had the buttermilk biscuit with maple butter - which just melted in my mouth. I decadence I don't usually indulge in. I then had the curried carrots which were tasty served with arugula and pumpkin seeds. The beef medallions with oysters was cooked perfectly. I truly enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is small, intimate, but not too loud. My only critique was the price of a glass of wine. $20 - ouch. I don't even pay that for a bottle of white wine. My husband said that he wouldn't be willing to go to a restaurant where they charged that much for a glass of wine.

The staff is welcoming and the space is very comfortable and cozy. One can choose to eat at the counter and chat with the chef or at a table for a more intimate dinner. There are also three "Ice fishing" tents set up for outside dining during winter months. We did try it and enjoyed our own "cave". This last time we tried the duck rillettes, the salmon and the grilled vegetables with lentils, an abundance of delicious flavors. There is always something new to try.

We braced ourselves every time the waiter went out the front door to serve the tables outside. Sooo cold! But we put out coats back on and were comfortable. The food was really good yet on the pricy side. Did the quality of the food warrant the price? Not so sure about that. Waitress was lovely and helpful.

Kudos to Chef-Owner Erin for surviving throughout the pandemic without sacrificing any of the quality and innovation she is well known for. Some tips for dining in the OUTDOOR ICE FISHING IGLOOS: They are fun but not for everyone. We loved it, but we were realistic... It was an unusually warm February 65f day so the temp was in the 50s as we went in at 6:00pm and in the low 40s when we left at 8:00pm. There is a very small heater but what you'll really want is warm layers and heavy socks, and to use the blankets. In fact, pack an extra one. If it were any colder, I'd pass but I hate the cold. The temperature drops each time the server comes in. We pretended we were in that scene from Parts Unknown where Anthony Bourdain and friends ate that incredible meal in an ice fishing hut. ;-) We brought our own battery powered string of twinkle lights for the table (the lighting inside is very bright!) and a portable speaker (drowns out Mass. Ave traffic very well) and highly recommend doing both of these things. TIP YOUR SERVER WELL -- they're working so hard running in and out of the restaurant and managing the igloo zippers along with the food and drink they're bringing out.
