    My wife and I went to Harvest to celebrate our 2nd anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make us feel special. Everyone from the hostess to the manager congratulated us. The food was incredible and the manager bought our dessert. What a wonderful experience.

    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!

    We sat near the back of the establishment and on the wall next to us was a map of the Louisville Metro area plus surrounding counties that had numerous pins all over it. I believe the map showed where Harvest sources its different foods... super cool. Can't wait to go back.

    Harvest was a wonderful find while visiting Louisville! Very energetic, excellent preparation and presentation of food, super service. All food comes from a 100 mile radius, met one of the owners who visited our table to check that all was good. They also have a farm. Food was amazing, ambiance charming.

    We were in Louisville for a convention. Having read about Harvest prior to our trip, we made dinner reservations before we even got to town. We were glad we did. Our guests selected the BBQ platter and the special Pho. I had the Smoked Brined Pork Chop and the Burgoo. Both were exceptional and perfectly done. My husband had the Special Steak and the Roasted Tomato Soup and felt they were equally delicious. We shared the Flourles Chocolate Torte for dessert. It was divine, but we were very full by then! We especially liked the owner-farmer who came to the table several times and discussed the restaurant, his roles, and our choices for dinner. The waitress, Robin, was very helpful and attentive.

    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.

    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.
