    Harvest is a local treasure! At a time when nice restaurants are struggling to survive, come to the place where Julia child dined (with her back to the body of the restaurant so she wouldn’t be disturbed). The tables are a reasonable distance apart, and you can have a conversation. The food is excellent. The waitstaff are unfailingly kind and attentive. It’s not inexpensive. But it’s worth every penny. As the square is increasingly populated by places that are deafeningly loud, It’s competition has dwindled. It’s delicious, civilized, and you leave feeling cared for and with a warm glow. It cannot be improved upon, and I am delighted it exists!

    The Harvest always presents a very well ran establishment. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The ambience is great and the food and libations are delicious. I will be back and I’m bringing family and friends, with me, when they’re in town!

    Our server (Colleen), the food and the atmosphere were all top notch. We often go here when we're celebrating a special occasion and want the best food with local ingredients. The menu is always innovative. The only reason we're not giving it five stars in all categories is because the bartender and person at the front desk when we were leaving were both incredibly rude and dismissive. We had not experienced that before at this restaurant, and we hope management takes note of this.

    Hi there, Thank you very much for your compliments and for choosing Harvest for your special celebrations. I am happy to hear you enjoyed great service from Colleen and great food. I apologize for the behavior you experienced while leaving the restaurant, this certainly is not our usual high standard and I will look into it immediately. I would be happy to discuss your experience in further detail if you would like. I can be reached at mbainton@harvestcambridge or at the number below. We hope to see you again soon. Best, Mike 617-868-2255

    LOVED everything about this restaurant! The food was delicious and very fresh. The atmosphere was charming and inviting. There’s a lovely terrace that opens from the restaurant so the whole room felt open and airy. Our server was wonderful; polite, attentive and friendly. We went for brunch and I can’t wait to go back and try their dinner menu.

    Our party of four sat in the beautiful outdoor patio on a pleasant early summer evening. Although it was Saturday night, the service could not have been more attentive or gracious. Christina was our main server. Nicely-paced dinner We shared carrot and hummus, fluke crudo and pate de campagne foie gras appetizers. I’d order each again. I had the terrific ribeye as main course-perfectly prepared medium rare. Others thoroughly enjoyed salmon, short rib pasta and swordfish main courses. Very nice wines-by-glass selection The black sesame bombe dessert is a must-try even if you don’t think you can fit dessert. I’ll be back soon to enjoy more items I have yet to try on the menu! Overall memorable, lovely evening

    Paul was an excellent server. We had a show to catch and he made our dining experience enjoyable but timely. Food was savory too. Harvest did not disappoint and we will definitely go back.

    Go to restaurant for business lunches near Harvard. But expensive and sometimes underwhelming food wise. Avoid hummus plate. Tasteless. Wish they would replace Saratoga mineral water. Worst water, and only comes in large bottles in Harvest. Stick to burger. Clam chowder is tiny and sometimes shriveled

    The food was just okay and WAY overpriced. $48 for the barely warm scallop entree was disappointing. Will not go back. Better options in the area.
