    Business dinner. Food reported very good by all attendees, but limited options for vegetarians unfortunately. Noise level too high for my comfort.

    I had the omelet and that day it included beets. I wasn't sure how I'd like that, but it was outstanding. My husband had the sausage and biscuits -- also very good. My niece had the crokie and it was also very good. I'll definitely be back again (soon!).

    First of all, the decor is nice. It's rustic, but not overdone. It goes well with the farm to table concept. We went for Sunday brunch at 11am and they weren't busy at all, which was surprising. I had the brioche french toast. It was cooked perfectly with fresh blackberries, however for some reason they put dried blueberries on it too which was unnecessary. My husband had the Crokie sandwich, which is more like an open-faced sandwich so it requires a fork and knife, but he said it was delicious. The bacon was tasty, but a bit chewy and I prefer my bacon crispy. Excellent mimosas. They usually have another special beverage available at brunch. On this day, it was a watermelon, basil, and champagne drink. I didn't try it, but it sounds yummy.

    We were in town for a brief overnight stay. This place was recommended to us by a local. We enjoyed the food--the apps were the stars of the meal and if we go back will get a sampler of multiple apps rather than entrees. The entrees were good--pork chop, bbq sampler, pasta dish. Our neighbor had the fried chicken and it looked good. I also wish the dessert menu were a little more extensive.

    Creative use of local ingredients. My food was delicious, only complaint is that the salads are too small portion-wise. If you are there for lunch, don't order just a salad or you will leave hungry! Also, some vegan options would be nice.

    Harvest is another one of the charming little foodie gems that can be found in NuLu. What makes this restaurant different is it's dedication to serving beautiful dishes made of only local ingredients. As a vegetarian I didn't feel that the menu offered many options that didn't include meat, but that was made up for once I took a bite of the flourless chocolate tart with bourbon vanilla infused cream.

    As visitors to Louisville for just one night, we wanted a cool place to be at with great food and an atmosphere that would accommodate a 9 month old at the table. The hotel staff recommended Harvest and it worked out great. They had a high chair and room for our son, and the noise level was loud enough so we didn't have to worry about every peep he made. We were advised that it's a farm to table restaurant and the food is locally grown which is always great. It was also nice to get some Southern food and BBQ without the heavy and fattening fried preparation. It was all very good and tasted very fresh.

    My fiance and i had been wanting to try this place for a while now and I'm so glad we did. We were greeted at the door and had arrived a little before our reservation so we went to the bar for a drink. When seated the guy behind the bar ended up being our server. That being said between helping behind the bar and serving the section we were in he did a great job! We started with the spinach hummus which I loved because it came with pickled vegetables. We shared the house salad with dill dressing. For our entrée he got the burger (which he loved) and jalapeño grits. While I got the gnocchi with a vegetable ragout. For dessert we had a peach and blueberry tart with homemade vanilla ice cream. Overall we loved our meal and the service!

    We had a group of 6 that they easily accommodated, including 2 kids 9-11. Food was excellent (though the basil hummus could be replaced and never missed) and displayed very nicely. The restaurant was packed (on a wednesday) including a large noisy group. Nothing wrong with that but we had to shout to hear one another (which I'm sure just added to the noise level). And as happens with a full house the kitchen falls behind. Apps came fairly quickly but dinner was almost another hour and a couple meals were barely warm. Kid's choices limited (most kids eat more than chicken nuggets and cheese pizza! Try offering a kids version of one entree e.g. salmon). The food was excellent (tried most items) and we had a great time, plan to return.

    For foodies, locavores and those seeking creative delicious freshly sourced and delightfully prepared foods - this is YOUR place. My lunch of salad with mixed greens, pea shoots and beets with a garnish of pickled radish and kohlrabi was fabulous, and the handmade artisanal pizza one of the best I've ever had ( and I've been in every state but AL, and 36 other countries). I only wish I could have returned for dinner that same day!

    Harvest was our first choice for our second anniversary. Based on our past experience we had great expectations--and we were not at all disappointed. We shared the cheese board, to start, and it was the highlight of the meal--three lovely pairings, including; "tomato powder-chevre & green tomato chow chow, smoked pepperjack & fruit compote, barren co. blue & apple butter" Fantastic!! My fella had the barbecue board and all three meats were cooked to perfection with a yummy served with a "drunken pork hoecake, jalapeno-bacon grits, black bean salad, vinegar dip and bbq sauce". I had the fried chicken--moist and flavorful. And for desert....are you kidding me? Sorghum cookies with candied bacon vanilla filling---Sinful!!!! and AMAZING!

    Had a group dinner there recently and had a disappointing experience overall. The food was fine, but we had over an hour between the starters and main course, with minimal attention from our server during that span. When the food arrived, it tasted fine but was five degrees above room temperature at best. No explanation or apology was volunteered, but when we complained about the delay they did discount the bill somewhat. The food was interesting and creative but I wouldn't return there.

    It was a dreary rainy day, and my friend, who was celebrating her 92nd birthday said, "Let's wait for a sunnier day." I convinced her that having lunch out would make the day sunny, and I was right. We were seated at a lovely spot by the front window and treated like royalty. Server Meghann was a delight. She is knowledgeable and professional. If she couldn't answer a question, she went to the chef. My omnivore friend has likes and dislikes, and I'm a vegan, but we both found great choices. The food was absolutely scrumptious, and we'll be back to celebrate my birthday!

    We had the bread board, the cheese board and BBQ board. All were very expensive for what little is on the board. Nothing unusual or even exception on the board. Favors were bland at best. The burger is 17.00 and came with asparagus that was way over cooked and floppy like over cooked spagetti. The buttermilk chicken was plated nicely, but the gravy was not smooth and had very little flavor. 3 adults and two children cost 160.00 with no alcohol. I will not recommend to friends or family. I have been to several resturants that cook from local farms and have had much better food. Extremely disappointed.I suspected that the sausage on our BBQ board had been frozen and reheated. The service was very slow and they were not at full capacity.

    With Harvest sitting pretty in the middle of NuLu they couldn't ask for a better location. But without delicious food location means nothing. Harvest's food is absolutely delicious! The menu is not so large that it is overwhelming but they have just the right variety for all diners to be pleased. The specialty cocktail menu is always a delight! Harvest is one of my favorites and not to be missed!

    We had heard great rhings about Harvest. It did not disappoint. 80% of food is purchased within 100 miles of Louisville. The owner stopped by our table to chat. We have fried chicken livers, the bread board appetizer, salads, burgers, and BBQ. ALL were delicious. Service was excellent. Noise level could get loud if the restaurant was full. Luckily it was a week night and an early dining hour. We will definitely go back.

    Local, organic, from farm to table style food with amazing cheeses and a good selection of mixed drinks and bourbon. One of the best brunches I have had. I recommend the croakie, my gf got the French toast and loved it. We also ordered 3 sides just try them and the potato salad was amazing if you like mustard based instead of mayo, the coleslaw was also great very unique and slightly sweet. The sausage was overcooked but had awesome flavor.
