I had written that it was our anniversary and asked for a nice table. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The waitstaff was wonderful and they brought us complementary champagne for our anniversary and wished us a happy one several times.

We had the miso crusted bronzino and it was the best. A bit noisy but energetic. The menu is diversified and offers many choices. The bar area gets quite a crowd...there was a band playing music and it drew a large group of younger people out to enjoy the evening. The dining area draws a sophisticated dining crowd.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a titleThe restaurant is lovely, especially on a snowy night with a wood burning fireplace.
The menu is adventurous, with wild boar, venison and buffalo. Their tuna tartare was delicious and a good size portion--just the right amount of spice, served with toast; venison in a cherry cognac sauce was outrageous--sweet and tender; the scallops, salmon and striped bass were delicious and perfectly done. The chef was willing to make some changes to side dishes which is always appreciated. Their profiteroles with hazelnut ice cream and chocolate sauce are so delicious and the banana croustade was luscious.
Drinks were done perfectly and the service was excellent. There wasn't an empty table but the servers were terrific. Will be back soon.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHarvest Bistro, Closter NJBrunch was great. 3 courses, very well prepared, fresh and delicious steak, chicken, mussels and a delicious hazelnut praline profiterole in chocolate sauce for dessert.
This included a glass of wine or champagne, bloody mary or a choice of juice. There are also many breakfast items--waffles, pancakes, burgers, etc. Their menu is pretty extensive for brunch. Dinner is ramped up with many exotic choices like kangaroo and elk along with the usual fish, chicken and beef selections. The kitchen rocks here.1/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a titleWe had brunch--great onion soup, mussels, flat iron steak and profiteroles -- all winners.
