Harvest is one of our local favoirites. Their dishes are well balanced and always executed well. We had the halibut with aspargus and the filet with the morels. Both entrees were cooked perfectly. The halibut was tender and flaky. And the brown butter hollandaise sauce was fantastic, it was like caramel without the sweetness. Also, they have the best bread pudding in town!

Probably a bad time of year
Went with my wife for our anniversary, 8:45 reservation; the place was packed largely due to graduation season (lots of teenagers with families). I think that contributed to the loudness in the restaurant (The first words to my wife were "its loud in here" to which she responded ("What?!")). The Pan Seared Foie Gras was a must get. Overall a great experience, especially as the night progressed and a lot of the crowd shuffled out.

Open table is a great feature
Open table is a great feature especially when needing a reservation at the lady minute.

Wonderful birthday meal
I had a wonderful meal " on the house" for my birthday month. What a great offer and great food and service. I had fresh, seasonal, locally sourced food in a wonderful environment. Best meal I have had all year! Thank you Harvest!

Amazingly good place. I've
Amazingly good place. I've dined many times, and the food is always prepared exquisitely. The wine list is top notch, and the service is nearly perfect. The appetizers and desserts tend to be a little stronger dishes overall than the entrees. I'd also like to see a few "new" dishes on the menu, as well as a tasting menu with wine pairings.

Harvest never fails to impress and is always worth being there and bringing friends.

Another enjoyable meal at Harvest
We had a lovely meal this past Saturday at Harvest. I had the greens salad and the swordfish off the lighter fare menu and both were very fresh and tasty. My bf had the pasta small plate to start and the hanger steak for his entree, both items were cooked perfectly. To finish the meal we had the bread pudding which is worth a trip to Harvest in it itself. I also wanted to mention our server was wonderful. They were out of the wine we wanted and she brought out two different ones for us to try instead and as it turns out the house pinot greigo is amazing!

Great for our anniversary
The food was absolutely amazing. The service was great as well. Granted, it was a bit pricy. However, you should expect that going to a restaurant of Harvest's caliber.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Harvest shares a building with another business and is quite unassuming from the outside. But the food is outstanding. Using fresh, and many local ingredients, the chef prepares a variety of scrumptious dishes.
6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Harvest never lets us down. Service is attentive and coordinated, but low key. Menu is imaginative and preparation consistently good. Portions are never tiny, nor are they excessive. Presentation is attractive but not precious.

My husband and I dined at
My husband and I dined at your restaurant for the first time on Friday night, utilizing your complimentary birthday meal. We had never heard of your restaurant before, but I have already told several people how wonderful it was. I LOVED your focus on seasonal and local food. We will definitely be back, and this will be my first choice to celebrate my birthday every year!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband I and tried Harvest out for our anniversary. Decor was a little weird but the food and service were excellent. We aren't nuts about wine but the Harvest Old Fashion was good. Our only regret is that we have lived a mile from Harvest for a year and hadn't tried it sooner.

Nice & Quiet
We had dinner early on a Friday evening, 6 pm. The dinner was nice, food taste fresh -nice salad, and since it was not real crowded, we had a quiet, relaxing dinner. The only issue was my fish was well done instead of medium, and they need to improve their air conditioning, after several tabels showed up the room was warm & stuffy. The menu talked about using wind energy, but I do not know how that affects a comfortable room.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the food!
We had a great dinner - entrees of hanger steak and ono fish for the non-dairy diner.
The food was great!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful evening & great fare. Nice wine list. The chicken & beef were excellent. The bread pudding was an amazing treat!

Always a good dining experience
We always enjoy dining at Harvest. The food varies seasonally, so is fresh. The food tastes great and is beautifully served. We let our server know that we had plans after dinner, and our service was prompt, so that we had no problem getting to our next destination on time. It was a lovely dinner.

Dinner at Harvest
The restaurant came on a recommendation. The salad and bread before the main course was excellent. The bar and wine list was extensive. My wife said that was the best Salmon she ever had. My filet was good but not the best I ever had. The bread pudding/coffee/expresso was excellent. The waitress was attentive and the service was top notch.

Nice Anniversery Dinner
We went there for our 10th Anniversary. The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice. It was a lot more than we usually spend on a dinner, but it was a special occasion and the food made us feel OK about the price. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. The only drawback was that the service was a little sluggish, but we were slow in ordering at the beginning, so that might have just been a reflection on us.

Farm fresh food to die for
We attended Taste of Saint Louis last year and tried Harvest's Bread pudding. It was delicious. So much so that we made a special effort to drive out and try their regular fare. Upon visiting we discovered that the dessert was just the tip of the iceberg. They have an ever evolving menu of seasonal delights, to include nightly specials that will make your mouth water. Out of our four person group only one item was deemed to be average. The rest of the dishes and pairings were a treat. Be aware that although there staff is attentive most food is made when you order it so meals can take awhile. If your in a rush this is not your place. If your looking to spend time talking w/ friends, family, loved ones then this will fit the bill.

Harvest a Bounty for St Louis
This is our anniversary go-to place. Delightful service and superb food. One starter featured alternating slices of deep red heirloom and fried green tomatoes--the fried greens were crunchy outside, tart inside. Another starter: flatbread with lamb sausage, caramelized onion, and caper berries, also excellent. My wife's main course was the hanger steak, cooked just right (med rare). Mine was chicken, though I ordered it as much for the accompaniments: savory bread pudding with mushrooms--buttery and earthy; corn pudding. We shared vanilla panna cotta for dessert--a perfect finish.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I really enjoy
My wife and I really enjoy the fact that the menu changes along with the seasons of the year. Fresh fish, fowl, and vegetables that are local add to the ecclectic menu selections. The wine list is extensive with many selections reasonably priced.

Besides the delicious food and excellent service, the best thing about Harvest is that they source local produce and meat. Excellent job. My first time and I will return.

Always Just Right
I like to dine at Harvest on Sunday evenings, when it's sparsely attended and it feels like my own private dining room with a few friends in attendance and outstanding service. Harvest offers one of the very top dining experiences in St. Louis. The chef is very adept at adapting dishes for personal tastes or dietary needs.

Fun Tasting Menu
There was a five course Butternut Squash tasting menu available that night. All five courses were wonderful! Very interesting, unique and deliciious. I hope the Butternut Squash tortellini will be on future menus - it was fantastic. The Pumpkin Ale ice cream was a great treat too.

The staff makes the restaurant
We had a special dinner for a friend of mine, and we are so glad we picked Harvest. The staff is so great, that words are hard to express. Jenny was our server (as always) and she is such a lovely person that she makes you feel like you are so special. The food is so good all the time, and they have added grass fed beef to the menu. I can't say enough about Harvest, if you have not been there you do not know what you are missing?? Thanks Harvest for being wonderful...

Great Meal Once again
I don't go to Harvest very often, but when I do I wonder why not. The food was great and service nicely done.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and appealing menu
There's something for everyone at Harvest. The menu is broad enough to please but not overwhelming, the staff is knowledgeable and on top of things, and presentation is outstanding. Wish I'd ordered the gnudi, which I loved last time I was there. The ribeye was good, but the gnudi was spectacular. My dining companion loved her trout.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food - excellent salad of fried green tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes....
Nicely cooked ribeye with bacon jam and grits.
Good martini - !

Quality, as usual
5 of us were in a bit of a quandary as the restaurant we had originally chosen downtown was in the midst of a food festival and the release of a large baseball crowd, and being older, this was a non-starter. Last minute search through Opentable yielded Harvest, an old favorite. Was a great choice as the ambiance (lighting, wall colors) was relaxing and inviting. Food was as good as I remember and one of the guests, a serious foodie, was highly impressed. An evening that could have been a bust turned out as a memorable occasion.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Harvest never disappoints. Always fresh and tasty.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Beautifully prepared fresh food, good selection of wines at reasonable prices, and excellent service -- just attentive enough. I appreciate the attention to decor such as the lighting, comfortable decor without being pretentious and inauthentic, and well-placed seating. As the great architecture Mies van der Rohe said, "God is in the details."

Very good , efficient ,quiet and informative service , excellent wine list, every course was very good; just a very pleasent experience over all.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a hit!
It seems to me that Harvest just keeps getting better and better. Chef Nick Miller has maintained the high quality of the previous owner/chef Stephen Gontram, but also made it better. We had the mussels, ribeye, and bread pudding (of course). All exceptional.

Hadn't been to Harvest in a while...very happy with the experience - food, drinks and ambience were all good.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yes! For Greenies!
We like Harvest because not only do they have great food - they care about the environment and continue
to find ways to become more sustainable.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wow. I am moving from New York City to St Louis and have had a few opportunities to sample the local food scene without great success. Until last night. Harvest was absolutely fantastic. A chef that is not afraid to put a salt shaker on the table because he knows you won't need it. The flavors of each dish were exploding in my mouth.
To clarify, I am a chef as well. A graduate of the French Culinary Institute, studied under Jacque Pepin, worked at Per Se for Thomas Keller. I know food.
Harvest was absolutely freaking fantastic.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Simple yet elegant
We love Harvest, it feels like home, we sat in front of the fireplace on a wet chilly night. The food is so good no words can give it justice. Jenny is always the server we request, I have never seen anyone so good at their job as Jenny, she really enjoys what she is doing, and it shows. Harvest makes you feel at home one minute, and when the food comes its like being in a 5 star restaurant.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
