    Despite still not having any soup on the Fall Menu, Harvest Kitchen manages to have innovative specials and a solid selection of standards. The skatewing special was new. Capers topped the perfectly sauteed fish, served over a smsll bed of mashers and a side of roasted broccoli. The new flabread appetizers are likewise a repeat.

    Our party of three enjoyed a wonderful meal at Harvest. Especially memorable was the Wild Boar Tenderloin and the Pumpkin Cheesecake. My husband was thrilled to have a choice of 5 gluten-free beers and to have the GF items marked on the menu. My friend and I each enjoyed one of the fun specialty cocktails. Every plate went back to the kitchen completely clean! And we accidentally lingered beyond the closing time without a single nudge or raised eyebrow from the staff. The service was very pleasant throughout our time there.

    I have been at the Harvest Kitchen many times and each time I go, the food is absolutely delicious. Mike the Chef/Owner of Harvest Kitchen, is always around to greet and let customers know about the latest offerings. Last week Mike suggested a Wagyu Flap Steak for me - that the service personnel said was butterery soft and delicious. Well...I thought I had my mind made up for the short rib but changed it after Mike's suggestion. Best decision ever, the meat was perfectly cooked to medium rare, seasoned beautifully with a Parmesan/Tomato based Risotto and stuffed ravioli. OMG!! This place is special with the food being way above average. Being a foodie myself and working for the largest food manufacturer in the world, allows me to indulge in some great recipes, but that meal last week was probably one of my top 5 ever. Congrats to Mike's Harvest Kitchen and the city of Solon for having such a diverse restaurant experience where the food is consistently good. Thanks, John J Trigilio Jr

    My wife and I have been coming to Harvest for over a year now. Mike may not be the prototypical gregarious & charismatic chef-owner that one would usually find at a higher end restaurant, the bottom line is that the guy can cook! Food is always consistent, creative & extremely flavorful -- without question, one of the top five restaurants in Cleveland/East Side that we've experienced. The service is also top-notch, with a tenured bar and wait staff that are always warm, attentive, and knowledgeable. Oh yea, the dessert selections are RIDICULOUS -- worth the trip alone!

    This was our first time at this restaurant. It is decorated nicely and with nice lighting for dining. We were placed at a table by the window and although there was a bit of draft, we were content. The waitress was attentive and friendly and offered suggestions and advice on the menu and beer selection. My wife ordered the ravioli and I ordered a ribeye steak. The chef was very accommodating to a slight deviation from the menu. The food was delicious and prepared to order. Overall, we were quite pleased with our experience and will return soon.

    Dined on 10/25/2014
    Our meals were good but the service was poor. On a busy Saturday night, it seemed like the restaurant was short-staffed (our server denied that). From the time of our reservation, we waited over an hour and 15 minutes before we received any food--20 minutes to even put in a drink order. Our server disappeared for long periods of time and did not refill water. Even when we walked in, the greeting (from I presume the owner--most receiving staff wouldn't wear pajama pants) was disinterested; On the way out, we received no "thanks, come again" because he was making a police report with an officer. Not sure that I would go back.

    We appreciated the menu, drink selection, pretty atmosphere and at first, the attentive, upbeat service. Everything came out super-fast and hot. Drinks served in chilled glasses, etc. We had an appetizer course which was very good, but wanted to take a little time before deciding on the next course. The server came around quite frequently to find out if we had decided, and after the third time, stated "I need to turn over this table, but you still have a little time". Well, then we became self-conscious about the time, felt rushed and hurried to decide what to order, and eat and leave. I wish I had been bold enough to have asked for the check right when the server told me about our time limit, but I wasn't angry, just a little annoyed

    We love going to Harvest for its consistency - the food is always elegant and thoughtfully prepared. But what stood out for us when we last dined was the exceptional server, Stacey who made every table including our own feel special. What a wonderful rapport she has with people and what a consummate professional. She made the evening truly special for us!

    We eat out quite a bit during the year not only in the Cleveland area and suburbs but in other cities. We liked the idea of them using locally grown food. The appetuzer salads were good, though pricey for the size. However my husband's bone marrow appetizer was so salty he couldn't eat it and he sent it back and got a salad instead. We both got different blackened seafood dishes. Well prepared but, again, they were both too salty. I've never had to say to a restaurant to hold the salt...but if we ever went back to Harvest Kitchen, we'd definitely have to say that. We didn't even stay for coffee and dessert. I will say that our bottle of Vouvray was excellent, though. I'm sorry I can't give this restaurant a better review.

    I was on a business trip and a friend recommended this farm to table restaurant. It is off the beaten path, but what a great find. We ate there two nights in a row. The fries that are fried in duck fat with delicious herbs was utterly delicious paired with a glass of Malbec. My friend and I split to dishes, so we could expand our horizons. The food was amazing. The service was great. The only issue with this restaurant is the mood lighting, it is simply too dark. I had to use the flashlight on my phone to see what I was eating.

    We arrived at 6:45 PM with reservations. A young female took us to a table that had two seats catty-corner to each other. There was a lot of cold air coming from a vent. I asked if we could have a table by a window, there were 5 unseated, and she said, "NO". they're reserved. I had to order something hot to drink, as I was freezing, where we were seated. By the time we left, approximately 1 1/2 hrs. later, no one had been seated at those tables. Very disappointing. Although we both enjoyed our meals, we will not go back there.

    My husband and I just happened on the Harvest Kitchen--what a treat--in fact we tried to get reservations a few days later, but found that they were closed that night! And we don't normally do that. Food was outstanding, and when a noisy couple near us became overpowering, they accommodated our request to be re-located. Wish this restaurant was in our neck of the woods. We'd be regulars.

    I would take Harvest to be among the best of restaurants...and not just in Solon. On a special occasion, my 87 year old mother-in-law came along and is not a big fan of eating out. By the end of the meal at Harvest...her plate was clean and she was raving about the best meal she had ever had. Everyone had to laugh...and agree. The food was superb. The young waitress was kind, watched after everyone in the group and handled the old and the young in the room with grace. Nice job. Harvest is now our standard bearer!!

    Off the beaten path this was a wonderful experience. Great ambience indoors or out. We ate out on the patio which is always a plus for us. The tuna appetizer was incredible as was the shrimp and grits. But the scallops and mushroom ravioli were even better yet. The service was attentive but not overpowering. Definitely will be returning again.

    My husband and I went to this restaurant for the first time on Monday- From the moment that you are greeted at the door until you walk out after your meal you feel warmed and welcomed. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the food and offered us some insight into its preparation - We ordered salads for starters, the greens were crisp, the dressing was just right and the cheese was suitably crumbly. We each ordered the ribs - a whopping 2 pounds is in each order (doggie bag was required) They were well seasoned and tender to the bone very meaty and the sauce was a compliment rather than hiding the imperfections in the meat, The fries were rosemary and sea salt dusted. The steamed carrots were good (i was sorry this portion was tiny) Excellent

    4 of went to the Harvest Kitchen & Lounge on Friday, August 15th. The restaurant was busy and lively. It was somewhat noisy and a little difficult to maintain conversations. Our service was excellent and the food was mixed. I asked our server, Robert, for help in choosing between three options and he recommended the salmon. I ordered it medium and it was overlooked and fishy tasting. I would never order it again. Our two ladies had the scallop feature and liked it very much, although the broccolini was bitter and overlooked. Our fourth person ordered the wild boar and enjoyed it very much. Overall, I was disappointed as we have had very nice lunches in the past.
