I have been to harvest several times and I love how they make an effort to use locally grown food in their menu to help the local economy. The salmon is beyond amazing, I always mean to venture out and try something new but I am never successful because of how good the salmon is. It's a lively place, and I always enjoy our dining experience

This was a repeat visit for us and even though we came from the opposite part of town it was well worth the trip. The food and presentation were excellant. We will certainly be back

We had a great time and would go back for dinner. Our waiter (Hector)was very attentive to our table and at the end of dining he even ran after us because we forgot to pick up our leftovers!

Harvest has some of the very best food I have had in ages. My wife had the manicotti which was fantastic, and I had the wild diver scallops which bordered on a religious experience. These were the finest scallops I have ever had. We will definitely return soon.

Best Pot Pie in a long time
I wasn't sure what to order until the waiter said the pot pie of the day was Green Chili Pork. Best pot pie I can remember! Godd food, great beer selection, including local, great dining experience... again.

Why did we wait so long to try it?
We tried Harvest for the first time on Saturday. We made reservations for an early seating, 5:30 and were seated immediately. They were very crowded, but the wait staff was very attentive and helpful.
The food selections were very interesting. My husband chose the smoked salmon chowder & it was wonderful. I had a small salad with my dinner. It was simple but very fresh. We both chose the tenderloin medallions with bleu cheese demiglaze. 3 good size medallions accompanied by mashed potatoes with baby squash & snow peas. The beef was fork tender. Entire dinner was so tasty. Great experience. We will return.

Oro Valley Gem
We are Portlanders who spend a lot of time in Tucson. This is our favorite restaurant. We have gone to it since it opened when we are in town and have seen it go from good to stellar!!! Would recommend it to anyone.

I have always had a great meal at Harvest in Oro Valley. It is a small restaurant but the food is delicious. The hamburgers are fantastic. The vegtables are fresh and the meat is from Arizona. They are open for lunch and it is reasonably priced about $7-10. I am going back for lunch soon.
The Pesto Salmon was so flavorful and they were happy to give me spinach instead of Risotto (my special diet request) although I was tempted. They will also bake a Gluten Free bread per your request. Made of garbanzo beans, it was very good.
They are dedicated to local, fresh, seasonal food, good job on supporting our local farmers and ranchers!!!

The menu is unique with everything skillfully prepared. The beef was the best ever. Desserts are beautiflly created, This is a place that has escalated to my number one dinner spot to eat a relaxed and elegant meal. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and service.

Nice range of prices and entrees
All the food is tasty, but if you are on a budget you will find something on the menu, as well as if you are looking for something special. My wife had the scallops which were cooked perfectly, while I had the backed french onion, and the chimichuri burger. The burger was fearlessly rare as I had ordered it, which is a nice change from places that have so little faith in their meat source they think rare means medium, and medium rare means medium well. The onion soup was not only well made, full of onion taste and nice restrained use of cheese, but it was also very hearty. It was full of tasty onion pieces cut large enough to bite into, but not so large half hangs out of your mouth when you try to eat it. Overall a satisfactory experience.

Diamond in the desert
This place is off the beaten path in Oro Valley. I met a friend for early lunch and had an ahi tuna salad and a great signature cocktail. My girlfriend's smoked salmon sandwich was to die for. Loved it, and the waiter was awesome. Wish I could remember his name to thank him!

Great Food, Great Sevice
Love having such a great restaurant in walking distance of my house. Our party of six had a wonderful evening! The restaurant was very busy on a Friday night but all staff was very attentive.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you want an incredible dining experience, you need to check out Harvest! The only reason it got an average in the Service Dept was that it was a holiday and they were slammed! Typically, the service is as good as the food and ambiance.

Casual dining the casual hearted
Menu has variety in food and price. Don't expect to be wowed by the wine list but it is adequate for the menu selections.

Went for the Sunset Menu and was not disappointed. Great food. Reasonable price.

Great customer service
We booked through Open Table (which I had not done before) and said I had 5 people in my party. I asked about both couples using the Dining Card and requested a reservation confirmation. I received an email confirmation (which I didn't know I would get), and also got a follow-up call from the restaurant. He told me that indeed we would both use the cards at the same table, and I said we'd see them later - 4 adults and one child. Well, I guess he assumed II meant a small child becasue when we arrived they had us down for 4 and a high chair. Our "child" was 9 years old and needed a chair. The manager (owner?) couldn't have been nicer about the misunderstanding and got us a table inside as we requested with little delay. The service was great!

The lamb shank is wonderful. Have had it there several times.

Good overall experience
We arrived at 5:30 pm hoping to try their early bird dinner menu but, it ended at 5:30. Short ribs were great. Service was excellent.

Always a good time....
Good food, fair wine list and friendly service. And at an affordable price.

Dinner for Four
Four of us went to Harvest on Monday night. My wife had the lamb shank special and loved it. I had the grilled salmon without the pesto sauce and it was quite good. The others had a dish with clams, scallops, etc. and both raved about the combination. We'll go back, for sure.

Great dining at Harvest
Our dinner was superb and the service great. We love eating at Harvest.

If you're looking for a great burger, definitely give Harvest a shot. The Brandy burger hit the spot; hefty, juicy and done perfectly.
Great service and reasonable prices as well.

Fantastic Anniversary Dinner
The food was spectacular, the service spot on, and the acknowledgement of our anniversary was very much appreciated. And it is so refreshing to dine in a nice restaurant that was not crawling with children. Not that there is anything wrong with children, but there do need to be some places for adults to enjoy conversation and fortunately Harvest is one of them!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and food were good. Noise level was high and it distracted later on for us. Good value for yourmoney
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go as often as you like
A great neighborhood find. Prices not overwhelming and a decent selection of moderately priced wines.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat no meat
Service was very nice. Bruschetta to start out was one of the best ever. My wife and I disagreed over the scallops.
I like them done (white in color like the shrimp), she was fine with a little bit undercooked. Still much better than overdone.
Next time I will just order them differently.
There is also a fine desert selection, of which we had an excellent Crème Brulee.
Since my wife developed an allergy against wine, we had a fresh Thunder Canyon Ale.
It was more of an European service, not like a typical American restaurant, where everybody is pushed out the door as soon as they drop the fork. This was a first for us but we will be back for sure. There is much more to taste.
A real OASIS in the desert.

Food and service were very good. I'd like to see more vegan/vegetarian options on the menu, however.

Nice patio dining for an early evening casual experience. Burger was good as was the salad.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great healthy food!
This restaurant may not be considered a "outdoor eating establishment with a great view" based on its address and location but to our surprise it has a covered and uncovered sitting area with outstanding Catalina mountain views. The service is always outstanding and the food is a healthier alternative to most of the other quality restaurants in the Oro Valley area.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and creative drinks
My wife and I go regularly because we have come to expect delicious seasonal creations, and have never been disappointed. The service is usually very prompt and attentive. The cocktails are unique and delicious. The atmosphere is pleasant and quiet.
All things considered, this is one of our favorite restaurants in north Tucson.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Maybe it was just the evening, but all four meals at our table were not up to previous visits. It seems like each dish was more "mainstream" than previous -- not outstanding nor special. I believe their chef has moved on, and perhaps the kitchen and recipes have suffered a bit. Still recommend, however.

Another excellent night at
Another excellent night at Harvest. We brought another couple this week who had never been there. They loved the food, appreciated the half price bottles of wine and totally loved the restaurant.
The server was excellent and made the evening special..

Best Ahi Salad
Had the Ahi Salad first tiime, seared rare, perfect! Friend loved her burger and killer fries and the bread and butter are just fantastic!

fabulous farm to table
Whatever you order they will accommodate you. Great cuisine starts with great ingredients and that is their signature.

Great food, drinks and service-all at a reasonable price. Great mountain views from the patio. The lamb special was very tender and was delicious.

Food was very good. I also want to comment about your on line reservations...excellent!! Had to change my reservation and was able to do that on line.
That leads into this survey...you have a very good web person!

Everything was very good as usual.. One exception-the hamburger was ordered medium and was served well done. Everything else was served as ordered and enjoyed by all.

Friendly neighborhood restaurant
Good food, great service, very friendly... what more could you want. I had the black bean burger with fries, which are spiced with cumin and parsley, I believe. Very good. My husband had the burger, which he also said was very good. Fresh products. The wait staff was incredibly friendly from the moment you walk in the front door to the moment you walk back out. Had we lived there, we would definitely be returning!
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Harvest Restaurant is likely the best organic, local, conscious food restaurant I have ever experienced. The prices are VERY reasonable and the selection is amazing. There is only one location and the owner told us that this is because otherwise, the quality would suffer. The ingredients are premium. For example, the ice cream is made in house with organic cream. The bloody marys are homemade with tomato juice. Everything we had was delicious!!! A must visit. Easy access off I-10 in north Tucson.

Another great dinner
I met my friend for dinner when she was visiting from Phoenix. It was her first time at Harvest. She loved it! We had a delicious dinner and it was reasonably priced. They even have gluten-free choices. I love that they use local vendors which supports the local economy. Thank you Harvest for another great dinner!
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have enjoyed Harvest many times for lunch and for dinner. The menu is offers something for everyone with dishes prepared from local produce. Delightful!
