Hale & Hearty Soups
Posted by Diana on 03/22/2010
I find this restaurant to offer very poor customer service. Even the managers are very uncouth and possess no people's skills. Some of the soups are good while the salads are average. I use this restaurant a lot, but that is about to change!!

I find Hale & Hearty to be good, but inconsistent. The service is not great, some of the servers will just dump a scoop or two of rice in the soup, there doesn't appear to be a formula to that. Still, the tuna is good, the bread very fresh and some of soups are delicious, like the vegetable chowder and the Roman Tomato with pasta. I also like the salads very much and recommend the low fat balsalmic vinagette.

Good was tasty but definitely more expensive than I planned on spending for a bowl. Ordered the sweet corn chowder and half a tuna sandwich which cost just under $10. Kind of expensive for soup, and the tuna sandwich did not have that much tuna but really consisted of lots of bread. Good flavor with the dill and tuna combined. I also could not order my own sandwich because it was outside of normal lunch hours (it was past 3pm) so I had to choose from pre-made sandwiches that were probably sitting there since the lunch hour. Overall, I cringed when I paid $10 for the soup and small sandwich, and probably would try a different restaurant in the area before I went back to H&H.

A giant bowl of soup and 2 pieces of bread delivered to my door when it's 10 degrees outside? Can't get any better than that! And the soup is delicious.

Hale and Hearty had the best food with the best value. It was awesome for someone who doesn't like to sit there forever and waste their vacation sitting in a fancy restaurant. It was great food and very filling.

Seeing as how a burger and fries in NYC is $15, I thought this was a great value. I thought the portions were perfect. For $7-8, I got a serving of soup (1 cup) and half of a hearty sandwich and a drink. I was totally full when I finished. The service was rushed and barky, but it was fast, and if you knew what you wanted when it came to be your turn, you were fine. I will definitely go back.

I didn't find the soup here to be that impressive. The size is certainly smaller for the same soups you could get at Au Bon Pain or other delis. The service could have been much better as well. I won't be wasting my money at H&H again.
