The prices at the restaurant are way out of line for the portion sizes. Almost all entrees are at least $25. including pasta dishes. The portion of food for each of the three appetizers and the three entrees we ordered were insulting. My pasta dish which was very tasty consisted of five tortellini for $24. My friend's fish entree for $27 was about 2 inches long by one inch long with a sprinkling of green. The dessert which was $11 tasted like a stale doughnut. I eat out often at very good restaurants and this restaurant is a BIG ripoff.

My friend and I went to Hearth early on New Year's Eve and had their tasting menu. Each course was outstanding, and the meal was very fairly priced. The service was attentive throughout the dinner. We will definitely be back!

Got there early and waited at the bar. Bar manager was very helpful and knowledgable. The drink menu is creative and their beer selection was impressive (not in quantity but in selection...highly recommend Two Brother's IPA). We finally sat down and ordered three apps: beet salad, snapper crudo and pumpkin soup. Beet salad was good, but nothing special. Snapper Crudo was fresh but quite bland. the Pumpkin soup was very tasty. For dinner, we ordered the pork loin and veal. The Pork Loin was excellent...the pork belly that accompanied it was well marbled and cooked perfectly. The Veal was amazing...the sweatbread that accompanied it was a perfect pairing...along with the cauliflower panna cotta. We also ordered the gnocchi side dish which was excellent and a must have. The Sommelier suggested a red zinfindel which was amazing as well. The waitstaff was attentive and casual. From start to finish, a fun and exciting dining experience.

I'm a pretty picky eater and I'll say this is my favorite place in the city. Every single experience has been so wonderful, from the staff to the food. Love sitting at the kitchen counter, always good to see a clean and orderly kitchen in the city! I've never had a bad DISH, not to even mention meal, in this place (other than a maybe overseasoned crudo once). We go once a month minimum, in the fall sometimes more (the fall/winter menu is the best!)

I went to Hearth recently with my fiance and two friends, all of whom were as excited as I was to try this place. We'd all read the great reviews and were looking forward to trying the tasting menu. The service was pretty good, and the drinks were great, but the food... Ugh - what a disappointment! Whereas every other tasting menu I've had represented the chef's best work, this one just seemed like an afterthought. Like they had a bunch of leftovers and couldn't figure out what to do with. The lobster was rubbery, the pasta cold, the beef tough. And the dessert was nice, but too little too late. To top it off, after drinks and wine our total came out to over $150 each. Talk about overpriced. Particularly since the next night, we had a lovely dinner at Five Points that was not only better, it was also half as expensive. I hate to write a bad review - but I really felt compelled to after this experience.

I can't get over how good the food was at Heath. Very comfortable room, great service along with the food makes it the perfect neighborhood restaurant. You must try any pasta they make.

I love this place. It has a Northern California feel (in the best sense) right here in the gritty East Village: well-prepared food, quality ingredients, interesting menu, substantial wine list, spot-on service and "casual elegance" to plaigiarize another reviewer.
