I already let all my vegan friends know about your amazing place. It was so warm and loving and it was by far the best food I have ever had.
From the time we walked in we felt right at home. The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable. The chef was adorable and his passion for vegan cooking shined. The timing in between courses was perfect and the food was fantastic. We did the non-alcoholic pairing and the flavored elixirs paired beautifully. We left feeling comfortably full as the portion sizes were ideal. Wonderful for a special occasion or just something new. Super cozy environment.
There was far too much talk at the beginning of the evening. The chef literally discussed every intricate detail of each dish and talked for a good 15-20 minutes before the first dish arrived. No one even paid attention after the first few minutes of him rambling on for so long. Introduce each course when it is served and limit the amount of droning on and on so your diners can enjoy the food and their own dinner companions rather than listen to the chef all night.
One of the best dining experiences of my life! So special
Perfect way to celebrate our anniversary! The food & wine-pairing was great! Warm & welcoming environment.
What a wonderful experience. The menu was carefully selected from local, available ingredients and expertly prepared. The wine pairing was exceptional. The only disappointment was the coffee at the end. But aside from that this was an incredible dining experience. I look forward to a return visit!
I couldn't adore this place more. Everything is vegan and delicious. I've brought omnivores who loved the food. I love not having to pick my selection or wine -- it's a luxury knowing that everything will be good. I noted before I went that I was trying to avoid oil and the chef came out to me beforehand and explained where they used oil (it's not much) and they would put oil-made items to the side for me. This is our go-to place for any special occasion.
Some of the best food I have ever eaten. We are already talking about when we can go again.
Harvest Beat is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. It's a unique experience and you can tell that the chef is truly passionate about his work. Everyone is very friendly, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is intimate. This has become our regular anniversary/birthday spot!
This was such a wonderful date night. I so enjoyed the food and the intro from the chief. He was so gracious and grateful to all of his guests! We will be back :)
The evening began with a gratitude ceremony and explanation of each course and where the food was sourced. Clearly, Joe and his staff are proud of that they have created, and they should be; Harvest Beat's ambience is friendly and relaxing. Each course was beautifully prepared, delicious, and paired with a beverage. You have the choice for a nonalcoholic pairing if you wish. Our meal took 1.5 hours and we could have lingered longer if we wanted. We will definitely treat ourselves to another spectacular evening at Harvest Beat.
Wow! Can’t say enough wonderful things about my entire experience from the friendly and knowledgeable staff, the delicious and inventive food, and the cozy ambience :) I wish Harvest Beat was in San Diego so I could go more often! Guess I’ll have to visit Seattle again soon!
Excellent plates! I will come back. I love it
The food and service were both fantastic. We will definitely dine here again.
Wonderful meal from start to finish!
Such a lovely experience enjoying a thoughtful and beautiful meal crafted by passionate artists.
Delicious food not not a large amount for a degustation.
This was our second time to dine at Harvest Beat; and once again, it did not disappoint. We were a table of four. Three of us had the wine pairing and one of us had the non alcoholic pairing. The menu, as before, is creative. Each of the multiple courses were beautifully plated. The food was absolutely wonderful. The pairings worked well. The service was attentive and the noise level was low. This special restaurant with it's creative and tasty vegan menu, is a real find. Highly recommended.
Unique, beautiful, creative, great experience would definetly go back again.
Fabulous in all ways. The proprietors provide a special and memorable dining experience. Food brilliant, service, ambiance — all of it. Fun too.
Food and people are excellent. A 'good deal' for this caliber of food in Seattle.
The service, food, care for the ingredients and the values of the owners was fantastic. If we lived in Seattle, this would be a restaurant I’d go back to. The two slightly negative aspects was the ambiance - it was cold, and the price. While the food was amazing and great care was taken in every detail, I feel like the price is high.
The best vegan food in Seattle. Farm to Table menu is creative and delicious. Chef is willing to share information about how to cook the dishes if requested. The staff is SO fun and helpful. Sitting at the bar is the best sit in the restaurant...get there a bit early to get those seats. A really special place for a night out.
Most vegetarian places seem to try to imitate meat. Harvest Beat does not. Each course surprised with multiple individual tastes that melded together into something different. Only quibble i had was that the "whip cream" on the dessert was more or a "meringue". Wine pairings went well with the food but really enjoyed the raspberry wine that came with the dessert.
The staff is friendly and kind. The food is delicious and nuanced. What a wonderful experience!
The food was ok, not outstanding, the portions were small. My son, 22, was still hungry after the 4 courses (before the dessert)...
The meal was not as innovative and inspired as we could expect and did absolutely not match the bill that we paid. The small squash and apple salad was tasteless.
The sweet cake potato was overcooked, too dry.
The Tamale (closer to a thick cannelloni) and the main course, was ok, another one would have made it closer to a main course.
The dessert, a heavy chocolate torte with 0 subtlety, very disappointing. And despite the assurance of the person who described the menu, the "whipped cream" did taste Garbanzo bean juice (aqua fava).
I am not sure we will be back and it is too bad,
Service was so friendly and the seasonal food was amazing - nothing like what I could or would make at home, which is what I am looking for in an expensive restaurant experience. The space itself feels casual with a big open kitchen, the tables were set elegantly. I could have eaten more, but I normally eat bigger portions than a tasting menu offers.
Harvest Beat was a wonderful, fun, thoughtful, whimsical vegan meal. Compliments to all involved in the cultivating, preparing and serving of this meal.
This is the second time i've been to Harvest Beat, and once again I was pleasantly surprised. The perfect atmosphere, perfect amount of food, and delicious flavors make it a perfect date night spot.
I'm not a vegan, but my girlfriend is, and this place was recommended by a buddy of mine, so thought she'd appreciate it.
Upon reading the reviews, it was apparent that the food was excellent, but a couple of the reviews mentioned that they left hungry. On the way there, I only half-jokingly told me girlfriend she might need to take me to Dick's afterwards.
I was very pleasantly surprised. As expected, the food and service were excellent, and while each course was a bit smaller than I'm used to eating, the total amount of food for the 5 delicious courses, combined with the leisurely pace with allowed for a feeling of satisfaction and contentment without being overfull.
Tasty food, great service, a deep caring for food and its source, and a pleasant atmosphere all work in concert to make this a great dining experience. I didn't even miss the meat!
Given the techniques and ingredients involved the cost is justifiable—always pleasantly surprised and pleased. Mostly a special occasion place because of cost, though. We love it.
This was my second time at Harvest Beat and it was AMAZING this time as it was before. I really wish I could afford to eat here every 3 weeks when the menus change, because the food is always seasonal, local, organic, vegan, and delicious. They easily accommodate my stupid (and severe) gluten intolerance and the cuisine is so delectable even meat eaters will love it. You'll find an atmosphere that is super cozy, community-focused, and yet classy. I can't help but get the wine pairings every time I go because they are so sophisticated and they compliment each course so incredibly well. Two people will spend about $275 for dinner and the wine pairings, so its definitely pricey, but seriously exquisite.
Absolutely no flaws. Food and experience are inseparably linked. Am very excited to try the spring/summer menus.
Very nice vegan dinner
Exceptional, compassionate, friendly, ethical and sustainable vegan fine dining experience. Going back seasonally! This was a perfect way to spend my birthday evening!
Be prepared for something special when you arrive for dinner at this Wallingford neighborhood restaurant specializing in vegan cuisine. From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, you will be treated like a dinner guest rather than just a customer. Along with the fixed price five course meal, you can order a wine pairing or a non-alcoholic pairing, or you can order your beverages a la carte. We chose to sit at the counter looking into the kitchen so we could watch and chat with the chef. The food is both tasty and beautifully presented. Each course was interesting, delicately seasoned, and satisfying. There were two of us so one of us had the wine pairing and the other had the non-alcoholic pairing. Both pairings were perfect with the food. The service was attentive and friendly. There are lots of good vegetarian, vegan and whole food plant based restaurants emerging on the Seattle food scene these days; Harvest Beat stands out as one of the best of the best. Expensive. Moderate to quiet noise level. Casual attire. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended.
It's about time a restaurant cares about the environment in every aspect of their business. They are 100% vegan, source the ingredients locally and they are sustainable too. The food was amazing, even though some of the course included ingredients i do not like, I loved every dish. The food was high end, great quality, fresh, complex, and inventive. Even if your not vegan, I recommend trying it. Best food I ever had and I've been a foodie for decades...
Food was really exceptional. The wine pairings were a little expensive for the amount of wine and the quality was pretty good but overall felt overpriced. The presentation at the beginning of the meal was super special and made the night feel really personal and the atmosphere more familial. Would definitely return!
This is our favourite restaurant. We live in Vancouver BC, but make the point to dine here whenever we're passing through Seattle.
Amazing food, served by an enthusiastic staff. Clever uses of local veggies to create a delicious experience.
