The menu looked good and at those prices I would have expected real quality. The food was decent, but nowhere near worth the cost, and the plating was poor to the point where it really ruined the meal. My wife's plate was three breaded cutlets sitting on an inconsequential smear of sauce, and nothing else. The property is nice, but dated, and the restaurant was essentially overrun with loud children, making it terrible for a date. The server was pleasant and did her best, but I really don't think she had a lot to work with given the noise and how under-performing the food was. Even the deserts, which you'd think would be a specialty for Hershey, were just okay.

I understand that this is a destination, and you're paying more for the location that the food, but I'd still say the kitchen really isn't performing at a level that justifies those prices.

We lunched here after visiting Hershey Gardens. The food was very good, the ambiance of the bar room isn't great on summer day. Our server was overworked as he was the bartender and was assigned the tables in the bar room as well as outside. The main dining area was not full and the servers there seemed to be floating around with not much to do. We understand the staffing problems due to Covid-19 issues, however the disorganization here could have been handled with better front of house management.

Food was FANTASTIC, however the service was some of the worst I have ever had. 0 drink refills, completely inattentive waitress, we had to get help from other servers and had to yell to ours to get her to stop and help us out.

It was our Anniversary. When I called Hotel Hershey they said the Circular dining room wasn’t open. They suggested the Harvest. I called the Harvest and set everything up. The food was good, but definitely not a place to go for a romantic dinner. There were kids everywhere and we were sat in the bar area. Terrible. Had we known that we would have found a more intimate setting!! Possibly the Devon done the street! The hotel is changing snd gearing more to families now. The waitress even forgot it was our anniversary even thou the manager said Happy Anniversary!! Very disappointing!! Had to say aren’t you suppose to bring something for your Anniversary. The waitress complained she was never told!

We planned to have a quiet, intimate dinner. We had never eaten at the Harvest before so, we didn’t know why to expect. It was loud and our table wasn’t very private at all. I don’t think they had any tables that seemed to be more private. It was more a “dining room” experience. There were lots of small children (we left ours at home for a quiet dinner). The appetizer was delicious & large. We ordered ribs as an entree and were disappointed with how extremely tough they were. Our server was fantastic & we would
Consider eating here again. But, not to celebrate any sort of special occasion.

I feel like this restaurant is not nearly as good as it used to be. I have been here many times pre pandemic and it was much nicer and felt more upscale. I know it just recently opened post-pandemic but the food items were not as good as they used to be and it was loud and there were a lot of children (and we had an 8 pm reservation).

It had been several months since my surgery and I was longing fir a good meal that I did not have to cook. The fish was fresh, flaky and firm and was not flavored with butter or sauces. It was refreshing and complimented the root vegetables nicely. Service was jusr fine and my entire family enjoyed the experience. The food was superior to some so called exceptional establishmennts I have been to. We will definitely return and I woukd urge anyone looking for a redeeshing change if pace and a meal that will not disappoint to make reservation.

The tables were oddly set up and the service was poor from the initial greeting at the hostess stand to slow delivery of meal, then the table was NOT bussed, we had dinner sitting among dessert, empty drink glasses, etc. overall, you can tell the industry has been hit and lack of service professionals and training

The restaurant was not busy yet we waited 45 minutes for our dinner. The server offered no explanation and felt like the staff could have been more professional. We ate outside and seemed to have been forgotten at times.

This was over cooked and over priced cheap quality food. Restaurant at 1/2 capacity and it took 25 minutes to get our drinks while multiple staff members visibly walked around doing nothing. For $16 we got five baby carrots on a plate with a dollop of lemon flavored yogurt and three pistachio halves. $28 for over cooked dried out ribs that they just dumped a bunch of sauce on. All-in-all a terrible meal, terrible service and WAY too expensive.

I’ve previously had great experiences here. Upon entry at this visit, the manager and host seems to be arguing and finished that before greeting us. Make sure you ask to NOT have a booth. They are dark with no view whatsoever. Our server was great. Food was NOT. Raw chicken sandwich. Not what you should get at nice restaurant. I could have received a cooked chicken sandwich at a fast food drive through. What has happened to this restaurant?

Celebrated my son's graduation with Sunday lunch at Harvest. Were seated promptly for our 12:30 reservation and ordered the Bavarian Pretzel Board appetizer which was amazing and a meal in itself even shared 3 ways! We all had different entrees which we enjoyed and couldn't finish so took boxes with us. But, since this IS Hershey, we had to check the dessert menu and ordered the mile high apple pie which was also amazing and easily enough for 3 people to share! This was a PERFECT, leisurely meal after college commencement. We also enjoyed walking the beautiful hotel grounds in 90 degree weather after our huge meal. Definitely recommend Harvest for ANY special occasion or just a unique and enjoyable dining experience!

The food and ambiance was fabulous! I had the Farmer’s acorn bowl. Everything was so fresh and tasty. The spiced pistachios and whipped feta was an excellent touch. A table favorite was the butternut squash risotto. HIGHLY recommend ordering that as a side. The peanut butter Reese’s cheesecake was to DIE for and a great Hershey themed dessert. Wonderful experience!

Food was nothing exciting and many items felt non-homemade. Pierogies which were fried, desserts which tasted like they were from a store and our service, considering how empty the socially distant restaurant was, was pretty bleh. If staying here, I would gladly venture out to other local establishments. I would not return.
