Happily surprised and would highly recommend.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA first to HarvestThis was my party's first time dining at Harvest, as well as mine. The food was amazing and the service was top notch! I have added Harvest to my list of faves in the city. We came for my boyfriend's birthday and he was more than surprised.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite spot for usMy daughter andI enjoy the changing menu on night each week. She is a local undergraduate and I work nearby. The food is always both interesting and well prepared. Most of teh wait staff is fantastic with only a very few duds. Management is on site and visible while actively ensureing both a quality meal and dining expereince. Good but limited vegitatrian menu, most apps are very good with interesting blends of tastes. good selection of entres that change with teh seasons. Desserts are tiny but tasty! We are regulars!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbWe were looking for a "decent" restaurant near our hotel in University City and we found Harvest. We were amazed with the innovations and the quality of the food. The flat bread was excellent (the ladies even decided to buy the pizza stone and preparing them at home). Both the grilled shrimp and halibut were very tasty. The desserts we tried were outstanding too. Strongly recommend the Harvest and it is a restaurant which we would go again and again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHarvest has a great outdoorHarvest has a great outdoor seating patio with plenty of room to walk to or from your table, even with construction machinery curbside - which was about ten feet from their patio. Their food was delicious. I highly recommend the chicken satay, their flatbreads, and the short ribs. My wife and I didn't drink, but it appeared they had an extensive wine list with many beers to choose from. Service was good and the staff friendly. Can't wait to return.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. WouldThe food was delicious.

They brought wrong (more expensive bottle) wine but adjusted bill to the less expensive one we ordered. Excellent customer service- they want to make you happy! Portions a little small for those with a big appetite but great for portion control! Will be back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic server!I'm always impressed by Harvest's waitstaff. All of the servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, etc. This last time I went (4/12/2013), my friend and I had a really exceptionally waitress, Jill. She was upbeat and fun while still being incredibly courteous and attentive. What really struck me was that my friend, although she really enjoyed her entree at first, was a little overwhelmed by the flavor and didn't finish it. Jill was concerned that she didn't like it, and, though we insisted it was great, she still brought us another flat bread, free of charge, to-go to make up for it. If we didn't already love Harvest, that would've sealed the deal. As it stands, I would now go nowhere else!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had been meaning to tryWe had been meaning to try this restaurant and finally did. It didn't disappoint.

Service was excellent as well.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect birthday dinner!The food was awesome. We had flatbread and some browned dumplings as an appetizer, recommended by our server. Our party of five ordered everything from tofu to steak as entrees and all were prepared with perfect seasonings and looked beautiful when served. We had heard about small portions, which is why we ordered the appetizers to share, but we also had to have dessert since we were celebrating a birthday. We left feeling quite stuffed, but in a good way! It was also greatly appreciated that our server didn't rush us also it was a very busy Saturday night. He obviously understood that this was a rare occasion for our family to be altogether and we wanted to enjoy the meal and the time. Would go back any time!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)Love the oven baked goat cheese. A must try if you're a cheese lover.
