I went to Easter Brunch with my mom and brother. There was a pre-fixed menu with a great value. All parties felt the the food was delicious and unique. *The lobster & shrimp ravioli was amazing.* The outdoor patio was adorable and well heated. The fire places made the restaurant feel homey. Staff was pleasant, food and drinks came out in a timely manner.

This dinner was when Harvest was only offering limited seating, so it was VERY quiet. We've been to Harvest many times, and the food this time was as superb as usual. Their kitchen has not suffered from being closed for covid, that is for sure! Service was excellent, and especially respectful of the need to follow best practices for the pandemic. This was our first family dinner in a restaurant in 13 months and we were not disappointed!

The perfect warm weather lunch destination! The combination of the overhead heaters and a cool breeze enhanced the experience. The food as always is just right-- quantities are never overwhelming, the options are creative and always well prepared. The Cool Weather Salad with chicken was a perfect end to a day of returning to normalcy at two old favorites, the MFA and Harvest. We will see you again soon!

This restaurant was a perfect place for dining, especially during the pandemic. The outside patio was gorgeous, complete with well placed heaters and other comforts. It was bright and beautiful. The food was outstanding and the service was amazing. I rarely write reviews, but Harvest deserves a top level recommendation.

Harvest exceeded my expectations. I cannot find a fault in either the service or food provided. The ambience was also quiet and very cozy. We went here recently for my partner's birthday and the small touches that the staff added (table by fireplace, a few members coming by to say happy birthday) were invaluable to the experience. I would (and already have) recommended this to several people and anticipate a return in the future.

Harvest offers wonderful and innovative brunch items with a pleasant and inviting ambience. The eclairs were unique and tasty, while the chicken and waffles, pancakes and steak & eggs were all prepared perfectly. Waitstaff was very attentive but not overbearing.

The entire experience was phenomenal. From walking into the door to exiting, the service was top notch. It’s apparent that the food is made in house and the four dishes and two apps we ordered each met expectations. We went for brunch and can’t wait to come back for dinner!

As usual, the Harvest is wonderful. The food is great and the seating is beautifully handled with the heated patio and open main room seating. The wine list is phenomenal as well. I am guessing that the pandemic induced 90 minute reservation time made our server anxious - he was a bit of a constant presence - but was also efficient and attentive. It was really a nice experience with our kids to celebrate / commemorate the one year anniversary of the lockdown.

We entertained guests on the outside terrace and enjoyed such a wonderful meal and the setting was ideal-serene, with the fireplace going. We started out with the mussels (you have to try this preparation if you like mussels). They are prepared with garbanzo beans in a light curry sauce that is remarkable. I had the duck fit salad that was one of the best salads I have ever had-and I don’t really love duck but this was well cook, almost a jerky. It was the medjool dates and combination of ingredients that makes this salad unforgettable. My husband had the lobster ravioli as well as one of our guests. It was very fresh with just the right sauce so delicious but not overly rich. My husband has had this before (and I know why) and our guest raved about it too. Our other guest raved about the halibut that is served over a cauliflower mixture. We finished with the pistachio cake dessert that should not be missed! And I’m not a huge pistachio fan but this was a great, crunchy, light dessert that topped off our fabulous evening.
