Other than the food for school course came out too quickly, making for a non leisurely brunch, everything was good. Lovely atmosphere, good brunch choices.

We needed to change our reservation time at the last minute for 15 minutes later, and it was no problem. The service was warm and attentive, the food was marvelous. The four of us with different entrees were all very happy. My entree came out a couple of minutes later than the others and the chef ultimately came out to apologize as well as the server. It was of no consequence to me , but I appreciated the care. The ambiance is cozy and it remains one of my favorite restaurants.

This was our last visit. Harvest has priced itself out of our buying range. $65 (no beverages except water included) is too much for a tiny appetizer small main plate and tiny desert. Food quality was so-so and tastes were nothing exceptional. Add that to the $30 to park at the Charles garage as well as the idiot traffic patterns of Cambridge and the charm is lost. There are virtually hundreds of better choices for less money in the Boston area. Try one of them.

Taking two small children to an upscale Mother's Day brunch is always a gamble, and Harvest paid off! The food was incredible- the salmon dish I had was fantastic, there were terrific kids options, and my mother- who is difficult to please- absolutely loved her chicken. The atmosphere was welcoming, and the waitstaff were ready to deal with the kids, which was much appreciated! We will be back!

Great food, came out quick. Waiter was a bit off but runners were great. Waiter brought glass instead of bottle, then dripped wine everywhere when pouring. Seemed to be a bit too rushed.

Also, porchetta advertised on menu was a pork chop, not a porchetta slice. It was still good, but just a deboned pork chop with sauce.

Aside from these small issues, the meal was excellent and we had a great time.

Harvest is a superb restaurant, a real gem in Harvard Square. It has been there 40 years and has a truly impressive list of alumni but it is now at its all time best. The food— all four courses — ranged from the exceptional to the sublime, and the service was first rate.

We held a business dinner at Harvest. We arrived a bit early and sat at the bar for a drink prior to dinner. Drink selection (wine, beer) was very good; unfortunately the restaurant was out of scallops that evening so one dish on the menu was unavailable. No additional specials were offered, so menu was a bit limited. Service was good, food was wonderful. Prices a bit high.

Amazing food, service and ambience. Their desserts looked great, but were too full to try any. We had the four oysters they had on the menu and between the 6 of us, we ordered the ravioli and the duck - both were really well made. However, the ravioli portion was on the smaller side.

Off day. Planned quick lunch turned into 90-minute ordeal. Dropped entree, had to make it over. Felt invisible with VC friend who was not happy with pace. It’s lunch, not a 10-course dinner!

Best cocktail: Group "W" Bench
Best reasonably priced main course: Harvest burger
Best dessert: Citrus Tart
Best pasta: Mushroom, Nettle, and Fiddlehead Ravioli
Notes: The whole wheat pappardelle gives you more for your money, but the ravioli is super flavorful. Be prepared to wait for your food. This is not a place to go if you're short on time. Their brunch menu is relatively new, so it is not yet as daring.

I love this place. My whole family has been here in various configurations over the years and eaten delicious meals. So it has history for me. I came here with my husband for a special date recently and it still has the same vibe of quiet excellence about it and carefully prepared delicious dishes.
