Harvest’s reputation is based on presenting farm fresh ingredients in creative ways. On this visit we found the menu to be pretty standard—nothing out of the ordinary or pushing the culinary envelope. The food was fresh and well-prepared but nothing out of the ordinary for this level of restaurant. Overall we had OK food served professionally in a pleasant setting.
WE had a great meal. We were with a larger group, and the staff was able to accommodate our last minute request to add two more to our group.
I am so glad I got to visit this restaurant. Great wines, delicious food and friendly staff. I will go back every time I am in Madison.
My wife said it was the best meal of her life. Our waiter was awesome and we can’t wait to return.
Our server was fantastic. Food was excellent. Even our kids liked their food. Highly recommend
Food is rather bland. Atmosphere is nice. Wait staff if great.
The place was busy and we had reservation. We were sat within a minute of when we got there. Everyone was friendly and service was awesome. Food was awesome. The sizes we a little small but overall amazing restaurant.
First Valentine's Day dinner together!
Everything was perfect!
One word. Fabulous! From Max our knowledgeable and efficient waiter, to the creative and perfectly cooked food, Harvest is a great dining experience. This was our third time there and all aspects of the restaurant have been consistently excellent. Be prepared to pay more than many others but it is worth it.
The food here is incredible and her staff go the extra mile for their customers. I highly recommend this restaurant, and would especially suggest that you come in for one of their special multi-course dinners with wine pairings. So fun and good!
This is one of our favorite places in Madison, and Madison has a lot of good restaurants!
We had a great server! Food was delicious
First and second course were delicious! The risotto was amazing! The mussels were just okay and the orange cake was extremely dry to the point that I didn’t eat it. $5 for a soda is crazy especially when you only have one glass. Not much privacy since the tables are so close together and the lighting is horrible and makes it uninviting.
My husband and I visited Harvest on Friday during the Winter Restaurant Week and had a wonderful experience. We found the cocktails to be delicious and the menu selections to be perfect. For starters I chose the House salad while my husband chose the parsnip soup. Both were great. For the main course I decided on the short ribs with mashed potatoes and my husband went for the risotto. Again they were both perfect and just the right amount of food. Finally, for dessert, we both decided on the cocoa panna cotta, which was to die for! OMG it was good. Thank you Harvest for a truly memorable meal. We'll definitely be back.
Wow! The meal was wonderful. Great service from a very professional staff. The prices were reasonable. The view of the Capital from Harvest's front windows are the best in Madison.
We went during Restaurant Week.
Every single thing we ordered was excellent. The service was very good. I enjoyed my cocktail. The downside, is that the seating is very close to the people next to you and it was more loud than I would prefer for a special dining occasion.
Our second time at Harvest and probably not our last. I had the beet soup again and liked it as much or more than the first time. our party tried the scallops, excellent and I had the pork chop which was extraordinary. Tender, moist and delicious. Just cooked enough. An extraordinary restaurant. Love it.
Great dinner with New Year's Eve menu. Elegant food but not pretentious.
Everything was delicious, and the staff was very nice.
Menu is great, nice local touch. Food is prepared perfectly. Excellent presentation. Menu items stay for appropriate amount of time before changing.
The food was amazing, our server, Heidi, was fantastic, and the atmosphere was cozy. Would definitely recommend.
Savory seasonal cuisine. Great service, wonderful specialty drinks, lovely atmosphere and view of the capital.
Excellent meal served by a well trained staff. We were a large party and were seated away from the main dining area per my request because one of our party has a hard time hearing. The food was excellent. Suggestions were right on and we could not have enjoyed the meal more.
Food was great, service even better. Very friendly staff. Delicious!
Outstanding and knowledgeable service. The chicken is exceptional--worth ordering, even if you don't usually order chicken out. The wine list has excellent variety. Appetizers were very good, as well. The beet salad, and the beet soup, tasted very fresh.
Perfect evening, great service, exquisite food, lovely atmosphere...
Food was great and the staff was very nice!
Arrived at 730, early enough that you shouldn't be out of things. Ordered a bottle of wine and it wasnt available. Ordered scallops and you were out. The cheese platter arrived without it customized as we asked and for three people there were only 5 slices of toasted bread. I ordered pork and it literally came plain, no sauce, and was barely luke warm.
Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and the quality of the food that was presented.
Locally-sourced food exquisitely prepared and presented; attentive, efficient and friendly service (thanks, Heidi); a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
We had an awesome time...our server was terrific, the food was incredibly fresh and yummy. All 6 of us raved about the Halibut and wine...very nice!!
We went to Harvest on the recommendation of a friend before a concert at the Overture. Our waiter, Max, was very lively and helpful and we put together a wonderful meal of small plates and one entree. Just an overall amazing experience. Food was fresh, ambience a little noisy with close tables but no real problem as far as I am concerned.
We will return again and again.
We enjoyed terrific food along with fantastic service at Harvest Saturday. The freshest ingredients from local farmers/sources...A Great Experience!
The food was outstanding from start to finish. The Market Rissoto was a great combination of flavors, made perfectly. We were impressed by the food and wine knowledge of the waiter. I had the Door County Cherry Drop and it is now my new favorite. Service was terrific. We will definitely be back.
This restaurant is always amazing! I have never been disappointed with anything. The food is splendid, the ambiance gorgeous and the service is consistently excellent.
Food was nicely prepared and served with a smile. Very relaxing atmosphere.
Oh how I wanted to reap the benefits of the Harvest once again. I had made reservations way in advance and still was seated so far back in the restaurant near the kitchen and bathrooms! Then to be near the air conditioning, asked to be seated somewhere else, which they were accommodating, only to be seated further back yet! Service for us seemed to have been forgotten and we were feeling left out in the mist of things being right by the kitchen. Rarely did I see staff smile and look like they were happy doing what they were doing, quite depressing. We will not be back, I'm sorry.
