First rate overall. I would recommend to anyone.
Great food, great drink, great service.
We dined after a matinee at ART and the staff asked whether we had any time restrictions. They sat us promptly and the service was great. We had oysters (fantastic) a salad and appetizer before we dined on porchetta and a fish dish. Everything was first rate and we split the chocolate dessert. It was a very nice evening indeed
Great wine rec, the som rules. Couple at the next table was on a really awkward first date. Hope they have a 2nd. Unreal meal, will come back!!
Food is excellent, but I would enjoy more traditional desserts - olive oil sorbet and olive oil cakes are not what I am looking for at the end of an excellent meal. The salads are wonderful.
It took 25 minutes for anyone to come by to greet us, with exception of the very nice water guy.
We had our team holiday celebration for lunch. Food was delicious and served promptly. I would highly recommend.
Innovative menu and all superbly prepared and presented.
Good food and good ambiance. It wasn't until the next day that I realized they didn't put the smoked salmon on my eggs benedict, so obviously it tasted fine without it, but still...
Enjoyed the experience. The chef was kind enough to make us a special vegetarian pasta!
Great meal from start to finish. Service was terrific and setting was cozy. This is our go-to spot whenever we're in Cambridge. We were not disappointed.
The food was delicious, even my very skeptical husband enjoyed it.
Our server, Tim Ballas, was amazing.
Always love coming here for lunch. The food is excellent; the service is attentive; Harvest is a great place for lunch or dinner.
Wonderful to see this Harvard Square icon still as superb as ever.
It was delicious but they didn't have our reservation (?)
Wonderful food, super service and nice ambience!
We always return to Harvest whenever we are in the area and are never disappointed. The food is delicious and fresh, and the atmosphere is lively and pleasant
I had the chicken, my husband had pasta and my son had steak. We had oysters, beet salad and roasted carrots as appetizers, EVERYTHING was delicious. We were all sharing because each dish was so special. It's a new favorite.
Over the years meals here have been special but not this one. The porchetta was too complicated — too many flavors that did not go well together IMO. A fish dish substituted salmon for unavailable hake and it too did not have flavors that worked together. A stuffed quail special was the only on par meal of the night. The lemon tart for dessert was a deconstructed plate of nibbles with the curd in a hard black seasame cookie “ring” that was difficult to eat, a few tiny slices of blood orange and teardrops of meringue. The service was lovely and the waitstaff paced the meal well honoring our request to have the meal planned to make a show. Hopefully this was just an off night in the kitchen.
A Clean tidy obliging resturant. Very good for meeting friends and a chatty lunch. Food Good
Always a pleasure to eat here. The menu is a bit recherche and could be difficult for people who aren't used to unusual dishes.
Went there are NYE for their tasting menu. We were a group of 5 people with an 8:30 reservation. We were seated promptly and our waiter quickly took our order. The four courses were all pretty good except for the seafood gnocchi - the broth was unbearably salty. I really should have sent it back but I was out with a group and didn't want to make a big deal about it. Each course came out extremely quickly, like as soon as one course was removed the next course was delivered. So quickly, that the bar didn't have time to deliver our wine pairings, which on some courses didn't arrive until we were almost finished with the course. Then as soon as we declined coffee or teas, the check the waiter dropped the check at our table, without us asking for it. I don't know if we were rushed because it was NYE or if there was something else going on. From what we could tell no one was waiting for our table and the restaurant wasn't particularly crowded. I was a bit disappointed with the service we received.
Always exceptional! Worth the ride up from New Jersey just to dine here. Attention to detail is fantastic!
Exceptional service - everyone was so kind and accommodating.
Lobster roll was out of this world -- simple green salad was perfect -- candy cane creme brulee was amazing -- service was outstanding. What a wonderful dinner!
Had a lovely dinner with my two daughters. Pleasant service and great food!
The food was excellent. Our only complaint was that the venison, which 3 out of 4 of us ordered, was cold or lukewarm. Hard to complain on that one—no one wants things over cooked. My porchetta was to die for. Service by Janice was perfect.
Food was just so so especially for the price. Cornbread was undercooked. Farro salad was not good at all. Burger and fries were good but $16? Decor and service were good.
Exquisite in every way. The food was superb and the service was impeccable. We make sure we make a special trip to Cambridge when we are in the area. Harvest is one of our favorite restaurants.
the combination of ingredients in each dish and their presentation were stellar, the service impeccable and atmosphere calm. In contrast to many restaurants, including high-end competitors, having a conversation at our table at a normal volume was easy.
cost is on the high side especially wine @ $17 for a decent red by the glass. Dinner plates are more than most places. However, you really get what you pay for.
Harvest has always been a top "chef" type restaurant with great service and world class menu kind of like a "michelin" rated place.
Probably geared for an older, more sensible crowd as opposed to younger millenial or trendy joints with loud Djs and strange food combinations.
We had the Venison plate served on top braised red cabbage in a elderberry wine reduction sauce and a spice pumpin puree. Also included a fantastic apple tart on the side. All masterfully cooked, composed and served.
The wines are good, served in large wine globes
Wish I could afford to dine there more often. However, I do not want to discourage anyone the experience of a great high quality dinner experience. Put some money aside and go there.
Exquisite, unbelievable food. Four of us cleaned our plates after each course. A dozen oysters--4 different kinds--baby beets and barrata, and a Denver leg of venison cooked rare, perhaps the best piece of meat I've ever had. Pickled cabbage, pumpkin puree I think, and a little puff pastry. Also ordered to share pickled veggies, and Yukon chips. My wife had a delicious ravioli, our daughter the haddock. Have forgotten what fourth entree was. Jasmine is a great server. Wonderful evening.
The food was absolutely excellent and presented very tastefully. Although I do not give service the highest rating, we came at a very busy time and service was certainly quite adequate. Thank you
Our waitress was so attentive and provided excellent advice about wine pairings. Menu was varied; food superb!
We had a business dinner at Harvest and could not have been more impressed. The service, in particular, was absolutely superb. Kudos to the staff. Food and ambience were also great.
Great food and great service. Best clam chowder I've ever had, also yummy lobster roll.
I have been to The Harvest many, many times since it opened (and I worked at D/R).
It usually is at the top of its game.
Yesterday, it was not.
The bread consisted of 2 small pieces of cornbread and NO butter?
The food was meh.
The group next to us was so noisy it was hard to carry on a conversation.
Given my past wonderful meals here, I will give it a pass on a Meh day.
This was a Christmas celebration for six. We had a great table, the service was perfect, the food was outstanding, and the pacing of the meal was superb. We had a lovely time and will probably repeat with the same group next Christmas.
Great as always
At 1:30 on Monday they were out of burgers. We sat in the bar area, which was great, but must have been short staff. One server was at the bar AND covered the 5-7 tables. Service very slow, orders took forever to come.
Unusual for Harvest. Food good, and hot, when it arrived. Still one of my favorite restaurants!
