I am actually a dedicated carnivore but I enjoyed the food very much. The ambience and the service were excellent and the wine pairing worked very well. Highly recommended
Easily the best restaurant meal of our lives. Both my husband and I felt that way. That lobster mushroom chowder...wow! The entire meal was delicious, vegan, local, unique, artfully presented, and served in a low-key but pretty setting by a kind, friendly team. We loved learning more about the ingredients of our meal and how they were sourced. Perfect night out and can’t wait to go again! Thank you, humans of Harvest Beat...continued success to you.
We brought our friends from Ireland here and they loved it.
Special food - but too much of it. Smaller portions across the board would make the dining experience extraordinary and spiritual. Alas, big portions/better value thinking has even infected a vegan world stand-out like Harvest Beat.
What an amazing experience with incredible seasonal food!
Recently went for a girls night and we weren’t disappointed. There is so much passion and creativity in every dish and every single ingredient is thoughtfully chosen. None of us are vegan/vegetarian but we were all so satisfied at the end of the meal. Service was great. Food was delicious. The passion behind food, farming, local sourcing and using seasonal produce was spot on!
Very nice to have a vegan option with creativity
Food was epic. Very unique and flavorful. Loved everything! So much.
Cons: not enough food. I was still hungry. For the hefty price, I should be full.
Im not a girl that eats like a pig and I’m not a big person either.
Another con, is a five course dinner. However, the tiny soup that’s in the picture below was as a course. That Tiny soup should not count as a course. So the picture below is TWO courses😿
What a unique and wonderful experience this gem of a restaurant offers in the heart of Seattle. The staff members are all so friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed learning about each meal and what delicious ingredients went into it from the lecture given by the chef. One thing that stands out about this place are those unique and odd ingredients, that when mixed together create a flavorful concoction.
The food, staff, and ambiance is outstanding as always! This place needs a Michelin Star...hmmm.
Fabulous experience. I just wish they served bread! Or some carb to fill you up a bit more, we went home happy but immediately dug into some snacks once we got back. Would recommend though.
We were blown away by the entire experience. Not only was the food creative and very pleasing to the pallet the waitstaff and chef were very welcoming and knowledgeable. We can’t wait to go back!
Great vegan option - very creative courses with great flavor and texture combos.
Not vegan but this is an amazing restaurant- great local food with amazing flavors and refinement.
Best restaurant! I traveled to many cities and tried vegan food but this one is by far the BEST!!
I'm not a vegan and I loved all the savory courses.
We had an absolutely wonderful time at Harvest Beat. The food was delicious, the service was amazing, and they went out of their way to accommodate our special food needs. Definitely a worthwhile place to go for special occasions.
Always amazing!! Even if you aren't vegan, you will enjoy!
An almost religious experience. Dazzling flavors and textures. Fresh and local raw materials. Menu changes every few weeks—no two meals are ever the same. Well worth the trip, the time, the cost.
Best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at! Highly recommend for special occasions..
It was one of the best vegan meals I've ever had. All local ingredients. 5 course meal.
A bit disappointing. Five minute description from our yakety yak server on the filtered water was unnecessary as was the chef’s verbatim recital of the menu. (From what we could actually hear!) Boring! He treated us like it was our first time eating organic micro greens. I also didn’t realize it was a group sitting. Felt like we were at a commune camp of some sort. I think diners are sophisticated enough at this time to let the food speak for itself. The food was good but on the bland side.
I took my friend here for her birthday on Saturday night! She is vegan and I am not so I was excited to experience this with her. We were both so impressed with the entire experience. We walked in and got to choose where we would like to sit (we opted for the bar so we could watch the food being prepared). We were greeted by the chefs and immediately felt welcome. Before service started the head chef spoke to the entire restaurant and told us about the ingredients and that nights menu (it changes every 3 weeks). Everything was creative and amazing! I would definitely go back, though for me it is a little pricey (worth it) for a normal evening.
A truly unique and delightful experience. There is only one seating and a fixed strictly vegan menu. It is located in a neighborhood just outside downtown Seattle, near the U of Wash campus. The building is a storefront in a strip of various establishments but the interior is rustic and cozy. The staff is very friendly and the chef gives a whole presentation about each dish. My husband absolutely loved everything. I am admittedly a bit pickier but found almost everything delicious (I'm not a huge mushroom fan and there were a couple of mushroom-centered courses). Really good vegan restaurants (ones that don't just phone it in with some risotto and fake meat junk) are surprisingly hard to find. This one is a definite gem!
My only complaint was while I was sitting outside they were fumes of propane or exhaust of some kind that would waft through the air occasionally. It definitely dampened the whole experience. However we chose to sit outside, so I don’t really find the restaurant at fault for this. Food and service were absolutely outstanding and we will visit again!
Harvest Beat always delivers a fantastic vegan feast. Sit at the bar watching the kitchen if you can - Joe and Marlin are really fantastic in engaging with guests and offering insights into the night’s dishes and ingredients.
The service was fantastic.
The food, all vegan, YEA!, was outstanding. Each course and wine pairing was better than the last.
We loved that the head chef came out to tell us about the restaurant and encouraged us to come into the kitchen to hear him talk about each ingredient hand picked for our meal. We are from Texas and we will definitely be back as soon as possible!
Every time I leave Harvest Beat I am not only full in my stomach, but full in my heart as well. The great staff and the appreciation of living in the great PNW! I was truly blessed to have the Harvest Beat Experience!
We always leave full and happy from Harvest Beat! The seasonal menus are fantastic and the food is creative and fancy without being pretentious. They create a full dining experience where they read the menu and explain not only what everything is, but also where it comes from. It’s a great place to celebrate a special occasion too. Highly recommended!
Wonderful experience, the Chef and Staff are kind and professional as always. Giving a unique dining experience that results in a show gratitude and love towards the dishes they create. Resulting in a delicious and nice evening!
The best food in Seattle, period. The cooks prepare each dish meticulously and blend textures and flavors masterfully. The wait staff is attentive and personable, and the ambience is lovely.
Harvest Beat never disappoints. Truly an extraordinary experience each and every visit!
I cannot recommend this place enough. Anyone who loves food would love this restaurant! The dishes are very well thought through and executed and the pairings are fantastic. We were able to sit at the bar and watch the kitchen prepare each course and chat with the chefs, which was an added treat. Whenever we find ourselves back in Seattle, we well certainly be back
Normally we love our meal at Harvest Beat. This time, we were a bit disappointed with the courses, which are usually more flavorful, innovative, and filling. The morels were bland as was the filling in them, and the dessert was a bit novice. The other courses were delicious, but a little underwhelming for the price point and our usual expectation.
Excellent food, well prepared with care and integrity. The staff made everyone feel welcome and seemed genuinely happy to be there. A great find. Pricey, but worth it!
The food was creative, delicious and surprising.
The owner/host was so lovely and accommodating, and the several courses —all vegan — were elegantly presented, chock-full of lively flavors and textures, and delightfully healthy.
This is our favorite restaurant in Seattle- even for the one person in our party that is not vegan. The service is always excellent. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. The food is ridiculously creative and is unbelievably good. We have allergies and we let them know ahead of time and it is never a problem. The world would be a better place if we had more restaurants like HB and I’m so grateful it’s in our beautiful city. We skip dining out at other restaurants to have an unforgettable meal here every three weeks or so when the new menu comes out. It’s worth every penny. Thank you for everything you do!
Harvest beat is my favorite restaurant in Seattle, and one of my favorite fine dining vegan restaurants in general. The ambiance is not stuffy but rather charming and inviting. The service is so friendly and the food is beyond incredible!
This was the best vegan gastronomic experience we have ever had and was truly an exceptional experience. Each bite is a burst of flavor explosion and you will be introduced to a different level of euphoria and happiness; it reflects the time invested to create these wonderful dishes. A very well thought out menu and drink pairing.
Their mission statement is the icing on the cake...I would rather spend my money here than any other restaurant. Well worth the time and the trek.
We loved the food at the restaurant but the ambiance was relatively ordinary.
