Hearth- New Hope or No Hope?

Bacchus101 | Sep 8, 2013 03:01 PM

I have read all the glowing reviews on Yelp and stopped to lunch on a lovely day on their patio. Great day, great people watching but that was it for the superlatives. The service was slower than slow at all points of engagement. I ordered a "Rosemary – Limeade Tart and sweet ----This drink is comprised of organic lime juice and rosemary syrup completed with sparkling Pellegrino. The glass this was served in could not have been more than a squat 4 oz. martini glass filled to the top with ice, no taste of reosemary syrup and maybe one bubble of Pellegrino for $4.00. When I asked if this was the way they always served this drink I was asked " is it not strong enough?"I would have no way of knowing that as there was so little of anything to drink. Some time later my wife's soup was served cold with a oily taste, we asked for it to be removed. Waiting for a sandwich and small plate for another half hour the two previous tastes led us to the decision to drop the money for the drink and leave. This was a brilliant, busy Sunday and the place was almost empty. Probably somewhere between the glowing Yelps and our impressions is a median truth. I will leave that for other to find!
