Being a huge fan of the parent restaurant, Hearth, I was determined to love this place from the start. Unfortunately, the wine is good, but not great, considering the lofty $12-$15 a glass. Should you want a bite...the portions are itty bitty - for example, $5 for a cheese portion that you gives you four teeny paper thin bites, another $8 for a miniscule piece of serrano ham, with so little bread that it looks like it accidentally fell on the plate. The portion was borderline insulting, and easily the smallest I have ever been served in the city. If you are a wine/cheese lover - take your cravings elsewhere.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
