    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.

    I had been wanting to go to Harvest for a while and was finally able to eat there this past week. The menu was very unique with many great choices. I had a salad and the BBQ trio plate. Very different preparations, delicious in every way. Happily surprised and will definitely go back!

    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!

    I took a client here for lunch, and we both enjoyed our meals thoroughly. I had the BLT special, and she had the hummus, which was served on bread. The servings were sizable, and the food was delicious. The service was great as well. A little pricey for lunch, but perfect for entertaining a client.

    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.

We started with the beer cheese appetizer and I had the BBQ plate for my main dish and my wife had the fries chicken. Both dishes were amaIng and had great flavors. The service was also great. During our dinner we even met one of the farmers who provides food for the restaurant.

    Harvest was terrific. The food was absolutely delicious as were the drinks. I had the fried chicken, which was moist and tender with a crispy outside, and my date had the pork, which was equally delicious. We did a flight of Borboun and beer cheese to start. To die for! I loved this place and would definitely come back.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at lunch at Harvest. A knowledgable, helpful server--terrific food. The burgoo is flavorful with clean, light flavors instead of the muddy muddle that's often served. One of the best roast beef sandwiches anywhere, and a terrific sweet potato hummus. Understated, attractive decor.
