  • Wonderful experience, but it's a busy place

    We had a great start to the evening, probably because we had eary resesrvations (attended prior to a show). The wine we chose was on special that night but we didn't know it at first. The food was exceptional and so was the service until they got very busy. There was a long gap between appetizers and the main course, but the server was sympathetic. All in all, we were very pleased.

    Harvest was a nice change from cookie cutter restaurant menus. Most food is locally grown. Combinations were tasty and interesting. One of the owners was circulating the room and explaining origin of restaurant.

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/13/2014
    I took a colleague from another country here to impress her with our local restaurants. We had a quiet place to talk and that was the best thing about this place. The menu did not have much that wasn't fried, pork, chicken livers, etc--hence not very healthy. The server wasn't quite sure if the chicken was free range. We ordered salads and were brought our main courses when only halfway through our salads. We were asked to pay right after we finished our meal, which was awkward and embarrassing. I would not recommend taking anyone there whom one wants to impress.

    I had been to Harvest once before for lunch, and was happy with my food and experience. This second time was for dinner with another couple. I was disappointed. The service was very slow. Our table would have had at least 4 more beverages, not including water, if we could have had service. My dinner was ok, very underwhelming for what you pay. We had the beer cheese appetizer, which was good. All in all, it was just alright.

    I read all of the positive reviews, but the food, drink and service was even better and impeccable. The bourbon offerings were second to none. My wife enjoyed everything about Harvest. Parking was a little challenging, but worth the short walk. If you like food straight from the farm to the table, then Harvest is your place. You will not be disappointed.

    What a great restaurant experience. Food, service, atmosphere were just fantastic. If the breadboard is the cheddar/onion scones -- get them. I may steal them from you, but they are sublime. The food was cooked perfectly and the sauces were complimentary and not heavy. Even the milk gravy with the fried chicken -- just delicious and it included a mixture of herbs and spices that make it unique.

    My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our celebration experience here. In terms of appetizers, the beer cheese was delicious. For our entrees, we both ordered the steak prepared medium-rare. It was presented at perfect temperature and the taste was divine. She tried the well-balanced cocktail named "Keeping Up With the Joneses'." My Manhattan and Negroni were both excellent. The service was prompt, friendly, and informed. In sum, I will definitely be dining here again.

    Good food does NOT trump bad service! One goes to eat to seek out great food. Harvest certainly has good food, but the service we had at our last visit was so bad that we will never return. Waitress had no excuse, or anyone else for that matter, for ignoring us. We were right at the kitchen door.

    I had the pesto gnocchi, and it was the perfect combination of flavors. The mushroom au jus was fantastic. I love that I can get local, organic fare here. We sat at the bar and had a very attentive bartender. He let us try a new drink. The unusual drinks go well with the food.

    Food is always amazing! Ambiance is awesome! This is what food is about-celebrating the harvest that farmers dedicate their lives to nurturing so that we can so effortlessly enjoy! This is our favorite place to bring friends & family-we have never had a bad meal. The only flaw to our meal was the server correcting me on my pronunciation of willamette. (I always mess it up...but I know it had amazing pinots...). Oh well, definitely will not keep us from going back soon!

    Everything we ordered was spot on; the cheese board (the bleu cheese/apple butter combo is awesome), the hummus, the fall veggie salad, the pork chop (super tender and juicy with tons of flavor....possibly one of the freshest tasting pieces of meat I've had), the pumpkin chocolate chip bread pudding (comes out piping hot, sweet and moist, YUM!). Our service was good, and the atmosphere was great. We will definitely return. The prices are a little steep on some items, but considering the high quality, locally sourced ingredients you are guaranteed, its worth the splurge every once in a while. Hands down one of the better restaurants in Louisville.

    The evening was successful but not necessarily memorable...the menu was creative but a bit limited. We first shared the bread plate which consisted of sweet and savory scones with a speciality bitter...scones were bacon, cheese, and cherry which was unique. I enjoyed the fried chicken...my friend loved her chicken liver app and hated her collard greens...which is a dish she usually enjoys. The server told her that people usually love them or hate them. The server was knowledgeable about the menu but disappeared after our items appeared. I'll go back...but not in a hurry.

    Experienced server, good sense of humor, talked to the chef in response to our questions, knew wine list. Food a symphony of marvelous flavors. Amazing what fresh local grown ingredients can mean to a great recipe. Portions were perfect. We both had a huevos rancheros type dish, black bean stew, fried egg, home made salsa, tomatillos, and tortilla strips. The salsa was a kind of sweet hot, made with all fresh local peppers. Man, it was good! I am a busy professional that never takes time to fill out a survey, but I couldn't resist recommending the Harvest. We have only been to Harvest once (so I don't know if they are consistent), but we will go back the next time in Louisville. Enjoy!

    As a resident of Nashville with access to the fabulous fun restaurants in East Nashville, I am rather picky about my brunches and lunches. Harvest hits the spot. From the sweet potato biscuits with ham and apple butter to the grits and stew, my brunch was wonderful. A friend had the French toast, which got sampled all around and was equally wonderful. Our service was friendly, prompt and personable. We made reservations, which I would recommend. This is a must for Sunday brunch.

    This is a farm to table resturant. We started out with the bread platter,which were mini bacon and cheddar scones. Yum! We each had a different salad, which were all savory, for the main dishes we had a mouth watering pork chop, a spinach and swisschard cannoli and a pesto gnocchi. I would highly recommend this resturant.

    I found this restaurant as an out of towner looking for delicious local food. The hotel staff weren't sure where to start and did little research to find harvest. I'm from the Pacific Northwest where the 100 mile diet is a way of life. The food was simple, inventive and absolutely delicious. I had a salad, a delicious soup and a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. They were each absolutely exquisite. My waitress was salt of the earth, super friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and how it was prepared. It was definitely worth the cab fare I paid to and from the Hilton Garden hotel!
