We went to celebrate our anniversary (we mentioned this in the reservation details that it was our anniversary and this is where we had our first date, so we figured they would be excited, too!). Nobody at the restaurant seemed to notice this until they asked why we were there. Even after that, they did nothing special at all in celebration. They were out of two wines and we were recommended a champagne that was more like a cider which we had to send back. The food was fair (some dishes were very good) but not for the price of what you can get in this city. As one of the only tables there, the service felt very slow. The dining experience felt overly formal and stuffy for the quality of food and service. Overall, it was definitely not worth the expense when you can go to restaurants a couple blocks away for a much better experience.

The three others in my party were more enthralled with their entrees (salmon and lamb) than I was. I thought my pasta, though it tasted good, was not worth the price. Also, it was warm but not hot. The rolls were delicious. My salad was tasty and interesting. Although my husband will probably go back, I'd rather go somewhere less expensive next time we're in Madison. Service was friendly and attentive.

We have dined at Harvest on many occasions but this time (our 42nd anniversary celebration) was a disappointment. The appetizers and entrees were mediocre. The waiter highly recommended the chicken but it was nothing special and, in fact, portions of it were gritty. The entrees were no longer hot when they arrived at our table. (The restaurant was not busy.) Dessert, however, was excellent: rhubarb sorbet and strawberry ice cream.
Side note and not the main reason for our disappointment: I am celiac and Harvest has never served me anything that made me ill. I did become gluten sick thereafter and although I cannot be sure (there is a lag time for me before the gluten sickness hits), I did not eat anything else that I believe could have made me sick. (I did no other eating out and I am very careful at home, where we have a gluten free kitchen.) This happens even when the restaurant tries hard to prevent it and I understand that; it is a risk I take to eat at good restaurants. My main reason for being disappointed was the low quality of the appetizers and entrees.

We drove 500 miles to get to Harvest and we're not disappointed. Of course, this was not the only reason, but it made a long drive worth it. We wished we could find something as good as this in Minneapolis, Baltimore, even NYC. The food, wine, staff, and ambiance were wonderful and inventive.

Love this place, like probably our favorite place in Madison - because it gets 5 stars on all aspects of being there, not just the great food and service. Ambiance great, music always tasteful and the right volume, interesting menu and can accommodate our food limitations.

Service was ok. Had to send steaks back to get cooked to requested temp, one twice. Normally not a big deal but expect more of a fine dining restaurant.

The food was excellent and the restaurant ambiance was great, but I have a hard time recommending because the value is out-of-line. I should have figured it out when the waiter kept hinting that we each should order first courses because the entrees aren't "overbearing". The portions were tiny. I paid $30 for 4 raviolo--yes, just 4. I don't need Applebees portion sizes, but I also don't think I should leave a restaurant hungry after paying$50/pp for an entree and a drink.

It was great overall. The food was good as was the service. We just had the bad luck of sitting next to a table who was extremely loud with no concern for the others dining around them. Would very much recommend just be prepared for loud people especially if you’re going on a weekend night.

The servers were all attentive, courteous, and friendly, always a good sign in a restaurant. Unfortunately our food choices were not at the same level. The item prices are high compared to other restaurants in the area and we didn’t feel that our dining experience would warrant paying those prices for a return visit.

Great. Good food and variety including vegetarian, chicken, steak, and seafood in appetizer, small dish, and main course sizes. Good service with pleasant waiters and low wait times. Refined atmosphere with soft lighting, small dining rooms, and low noise levels. It's pricey, but not unreasonably so for the substance and quality. Prepare for sticker shock, and you'll be pleased that it's not actually too shocking.
Overall good, upscale dining.
