We were a party of 8 adults and we all enjoyed our meal very, very much.
The back room where we were seated smelled a little musty and maybe in need of a facelift. But, overall will be back!

A disappointing dinner at Harvest. The food was acceptable -- well-prepared though on the whole, far too bland and conservative. Dessert was the highlight. But we were plagued by fruit flies in the dining room, and the waiter basically laughed it off rather than show any concern for our dinner experience being so horribly affected by having to wave away bugs literally the entire meal. Definitely some big problems with management happening here.

I will be sending you a private message with my contact information, please contact me so that I may have the opportunity to get some more information and make this right. Jeff O GM Harvest

Harvest is my new favorite restaurant! My husband and I loved this place. Our table was out on the patio. The heaters where great, they kept us warm and comfortable. Our waiter Matthew was superb!
We bought a gift certificate for my in-laws for Christmas. I am sure they will love it as much as we did!

Before today, I had only been to Harvest for Brunch, which is excellent, but tonight I came for dinner, and it was so amazing. I had the redfish and scallops, and both were so tender, and the sauce was incredible. It is one of my favorite restaurants now. Lovely ambience for a date, too. They did an excellent job on the cocktails, too.

Harvest is such a special place for us! We had our going-away brunch for our wedding here last year and were taken such good care of that we go back for special occasions like our anniversary on Sunday. The manager remembers us and the service and food remain excellent, they even comp’d our desserts! Love this place and can’t say enough.

I love – truly love – this restaurant. I have always found the interior to be extremely elegant (in a casual way) and comfortable. The menu is beautifully designed, with just the right number of choices, and every dish I have ever had has been marvelously prepared. The red fish, haddock and porchetta we ordered were no exception - all superbly prepared, as were our firsts (pork belly, sweet corn panna cotta) and desert (eclairs).

While we have not had significant service issues in the past, I will say that the service this visit was a little manic. Being at a table in the center of the room may have had something to do with this, But it felt as if there were servers of every description swirling around us the entire time, in some instances removing things that have just been placed. The manager took our order, and when it was served, not one of the three dishes was placed in front of the right person. Don’t get me wrong: this didn’t really affect our meal or diminish our love of Harvest, but I think it’s worth mentioning because you’re paying $250 for three people.

Love. This. Place.
