Eery course was a deight.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMmother's day dinnerAfter a great day walking around Sonoma my sister, brother and I treated our mom to a great dinner. The food was really good, the service even better and the patio out back was nice and cool after a warm day. Would eat here again in a heart beat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM"Hidden" Gem on the PlazaTired of touristy menus (every place serving variations of the same fare with high prices to match)? Tired of wine country cafes so noisy you can't hear the conversation at your own table? Harvest Moon Cafe is unique for its creative food selections that are fresh in every sense, and so worth the fair prices. The intimate cavernous feel of the main dining area sets the mood for a leisurely feast. The kitchen looks and feels like a trattoria tucked away in an Italian hill town. The wine list has surprising depth and flair designed to complement the food flavors. Maurizio, our waiter, is the epitome of great service--professional and personable. Must go--you will be thoroughly content!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMcontantly changing menu, alwayscontantly changing menu, always fresh and in season, wonderful preparation, our curent Sonoma favorite5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIntimate dining for food loversThis is a place where the food is always the best of Sonoma in the farm to table tradition with professional cooking, presentation and service. It's a winner! A charming, intimate place to dine.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst timersthis was the first time i dined at harvest moon and i absolutely loved it. i had a fabulous meal asdid my dining companion. fresh, clean and tasty food. i will definitely go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice surprise!Great food...great service...outdoor patio is a tent and needs sprucing up, but overall, it was very pleasant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, but VERY loudFood was amazing - have to start there.
Only downside was that the dining room was just too loud to have a conversation, so it wasn't the ideal spot for a romantic dinner that I had hoped for. Our small two person table was narrow but deep, and we were sandwiched between two larger groups so that may have been part of the problem.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Good! Ever changingConsistently Good!
Ever changing menu, so there is always something new to try.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPlan ahead! Dont miss going here!My wife and I were visiting wine country for the first time and Harvest Moon had come highly recommended by a chef friend. Very, very good and amazing food!!! The staff was so much fun! We tried to go back but the only reservations left were really early and really late!! Definitely a high quality restaurant with a backyard feel. We cant wait to go back!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was out first brunchThis was out first brunch at the Harvest Moon Cafe. The menu is somewhat limited but this is in keeping with the way the restaurant works. My wife and I both had the breakfast dishes, French toast & biscuits, gravy with scrambled eggs, both were great. They made a simple grilled cheese sandwich for my 4 year old daughter. The patio area is great for brunch/lunch on the weekends.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIf it was a wine, I'd rate it a 95We had an excellent meal. The menu is exciting and is almost all locally sourced. I had fried rabbit and my wife a halibut - the best examples of each we've ever had, and we dine out on the east coast twice a week. Service was excellent, I enjoyed sitting inside and watching the chefs prepare our meal with efficiency and artistry. I only wish I didn't live on the other side of the country.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe small but ever changingThe small but ever changing menu had enough choices to make anyone happy. The food was fresh and the mix of flavors was both interesting and delicious. Our waitress must have great job satisfacion to be able to present such wonderful choices and it showed in her enjoyment while serving us. We shared two excellent and diverse salads with ingredients such as fava beans, peas. pomegranite and hummus or oranges and lentils and amonds. The halibut was the best I've ever had, and the peanut butterr chocolate chip brownie with homemade bottersweet chocolate ice cream was amazingly simple and delicious!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe indoor dining area isThe indoor dining area is small and can get noisy but the outdoor area is quite spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our eggs benedict and french toast along with our thirst quenching mimosas! The homemade donuts are delicious!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Harvest Moon Cafe hasThe Harvest Moon Cafe has become our favorite Sonoma restaurant. We took our 4.5 year old daughter this time. It is always a challenge to take kids to good restaurants. We sat out in the Patio (covered and heated this time of the year). My daughter was brought a box of crayons and paper to color as soon as were got there. They made a great mac & cheese for our daughter and she nibbled on other things. The treatment of our daughter made this an great family dinner. There were also other kids there. Of course, the food for the adults was again great and we enjoyed every dish. The daily menu change is great and has enough variety for most people.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA great casual meal in a lovelyA great casual meal in a lovely location. Right on the square in Sonoma. The service was cordial, professional, and welcoming.
The mushroom risotto was memorable and our steak very nicely prepared. All our dishes showed care and sophistication without being fussy.

The rib-eye steaks were done to perfection, along with the potatoes and collared greens. The quail was out of this world, as was the lamb. Wines were paired perfectly with the help of our friendly and patient waiter!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
