    Harvest's food preparation and presentation is consistent. We have never had even an average experience here -all meals and service were high quality and the patio is such a pleaant place to see the sun setting in the mountains to the east. Having dined at many of Oro Valley and Tucson restauraunts at similar price ranges, Harvest places in the top 3 or 4 every time for tasty food, pleasant service, and an attractive atmosphere. The October $40 prix fix is a terrific special you should enjoy.

    We brought an out of town guest here for dinner. We eat here regularly because the food is always outstanding and their gluten free selection is terrific. Harvest did not disappoint! The food was terrific, the service was great and it was an overall great experience. We will bring guests here all the time and wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to everyone. Do not miss the homemade ice cream, it is delicious and is always a highlight of the experience!

    We went here to take my mother out for her birthday and heard great things about it. The service was slow, no pre-bussing done, but that could have been due to another table holding up our server. It happens. My boyfriend snuck away from the table and actually spoke with the owner (older gentleman) and said that at the end of our meal, please have the server bring out the flour less chocolate cake. He said they give the cupcake for birthdays. We said we didn't mind paying for the dessert, but please bring it as a surprise. At the end of the meal-no dessert! Server asked us what we wanted instead. :-/ We also ordered enough items for the 2 for 30 deal and I had to point it out to be discounted properly. Good food, okay service, great view.

    We had not been to Harvest in a few months and were pleased to have much better service than we have sometimes had. The food was terrific--our group of four had the salmon cobb, the chicken cobb, and the Neapolitan lasagna, and they were all wonderful. No one had room for dessert so I cannot comment on that part of the menu. Our two continuing complaints about Harvest are that it is much too noisy, and that too often there is an unhappy child sitting nearby whose parents ignore the noise the child is inflicting on other diners. We would be happy if the restaurant were a little less child-friendly....

    Great food, especially "the board" appetizer; very loud "music" and TV audio in the bar made conversation very difficult (dining on the patio would have been quieter than inside); not all items on the menu were available even though we were there early on a week night.

    This is our favorite restaurant in Tucson now. I am by temperament & profession a researcher. One of my research projects has been finding truly wonderful Cobb salads. I found the best here at Harvest -- Cobb salad with home (restaurant) smoked salmon. I've been here many times now and always tell myself I'll try something else -- but I never have been able to wean myself from the Cobb salad with smoked salmon. Everything else I've sampled is satisfying. My husband especially loves their burger on a GF bun exactly the way he likes it best. We all love their French fries. I have celiac disease and he is allergic to wheat. They offer many GF options and are attentive to getting it right. The owners are gracious and welcoming and attentive.

    We had the 3 course dinner for 2 special and a bottle of wine which was 1/2 price (a Monday & Tuesday special). The Greek Taco for the starter was a nice twist combining the fixings of a gyro with a soft taco shell. For the main course we had the port tenderloin and the gnocchi chicken scaloppini both of which melted in our mouth with texture and exceeded our expectations with flavor. The dessert was the ice cream chocolate cup cake that we shared smiling bite after bite.

    It was our first time at Harvest and we both enjoyed our dinners. I had the filet mignon medallions, there were three medallions, they were cooked just right and very tender, the sauce was very tasty. My husband had the shrimp and lobster margarita on angel hair pasta, the sauce is good and he liked it very much. We also had the Black Forest cupcake a la mode. Very good. We will return.

    This was an outstanding surprise. Terrific kitchen with imagination. Even the butter was unique (and the trick shared). Interesting menu options. Beautifully architected. Small unintrusive sports bar for any interested. Limited menu but reasonable prices, interesting variety of options. Unusually good value. Altogether, a classy discovery we will return to even 'tho it isn't very close to us.

    We went to try their special 3 course meal for two for $40. Great value, but more importantly the food was outstanding. I really recommend you try the "pork caprese". It's sliced pork tenderloin with dun dried tomatoes and mozzarella over angel hair pasta. Sounds simple, but it's not. Great idea form the chef.

    We went to Harvest recently for an early dinner. The food was very good and well presented, with some unique food options I have never seen before. The Chimichurri burger was flavorful and filling, albeit a bit messy. The accompanying cumin-parsley fries were unique and excellent. The Pulled-Pork special on the Sunset Menu was an amazing combination of flavorful pulled-pork in brioche with a smoky gravy and fried egg on top. The taste was memorable but it could have used a bit more of the pork. Our server was very attentive and friendly and the owner stopped by to ask about our food and experience. All in all, we really enjoyed Harvest and found it to be an excellent value.

    Harvest has been recommended as a great, healthy place to dine. It has great potential but I was disappointed. The food was just average, certainly nothing wow about it. The service was terrible. Our waitress was either way too busy or disorganized as she was not available. The outdoor dining was too dark to read the menu. When asked for a light, a small, unhelpful light was lit. Overall, it was not a meal or experience that stood out.

    My daughter and I eat here often. It is conveniently located near her apartment. Food is good and the menu changes depending on what is in season or locally available. I've tried many dishes here. Never had a bad meal. Good selection of wine, by the bottle or glass and they often have a "special" on certain wine. Service is great from the hostess to the waitstaff. My favorite Tucson restaurant!

    We have eaten at Harvest many times over the years...this time was was just a terrific as the other times. For Mother's Day there were additional items on the menu to enjoy...my husband loved the Prime Rib and I had Lamb Lollipops. Both were done just as we asked...medium rare. The salads were fresh as always and they had a great drink on the menu...Blueberry Lemonade which included the chef's homemade moonshine. Fabulous! This is one of our favorites and it did not disappoint.

    We receive poor service- the food items had "upcharges" to the menu which were not listed or explained in person. Our server was friendly, but made errors throughout the dinner including food items not brought out at appropriate times, charging for items not ordered, incorrect orders, and waiting 45 min for dinner to be served although all other in the restuarant had arrived after us, eaten, and gotten checks. The Ahi was flavorless and fatty tasting. GF bread was charged for although this was not explained at time of ordering-all other bread comes with the meal. This was our first time at this restuarantand were excited to try it out. We do not mind spending money for a good meal. We will not return nor recommend it to anyone.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Harvest. From a "chimi" burger to a seafood soup to medallions, all of the food was very tasty, not rushed and well made and presented. The service was great, we even tried some of the moonshine (lemonade, blueberry) and it was really smooth and very refreshing. It was a great dinner!
