We had been before and dined in their covered and heated patio. We didn’t realize the patio wasn’t weather proof. It was raining and the patio was closed. This meant we were eating indoors, which we hadn’t anticipated. Nevertheless, Harvest is reasonably well set up for indoor dining, with somewhat separate, small-ish dining areas, so we were only in contact with a small group of other diners.

Otherwise, the food was great, And the service was very good.

Thank you so much for dining with us! Unfortunately our patio does not have proper coverage for when it rains. The awning is for shade only and also helps to keep the heat in on those brisk evenings when we have our Jabenero heaters on. I'm so glad you were able to relax and enjoy yourselves with the Nana doors open. These folding glass walls really allow the outside air to circulate through the restaurant when open. We really hope to see you again! Thanks again, Jeff Osowski GM Harvest

We always dine at Harvest when we visit Cambridge. We have never been disappointed! The food is exquisite. There are always several choices for vegetarians. The service is very attentive. The host and hostess keep checking that everything is up to your satisfaction. They really appreciate your patronage during Covid 19. We can’t wait to return. It is worth a special trip from New Jersey.

My wife and I dined at Harvest for our anniversary. They food was excellent! The haddock dish was extremely flavorful....the best I've had. My wife had a lobster/pasta dish that was equally delicious. The service was top notch with each course timed perfectly. We dined in their outdoor area with heating elements on the open ceiling. Very comfortable.

Harvest is doing its best to serve its clients through covid. The menu is reduced, as it is for every other restaurant at this time. But it is a great menu, with delicious offerings. And they truly go the extra mile to keep their customers safe, with proper separation of tables, and a first rate service.

Lovely patio and impressive roof covering system. Service excellent, only sorry that its not possible to reserve specifically the patio - its on first come first serve basis - so you cannot be sure you will be seated outside, but understand why they do it as its limited seating.

Harvest
Responded on September 2, 2020

Thank you so much for dining with us Christina! Yes, the limited tables and the fact that our awning is strictly for shade and not rain are a couple of the reasons we are unable to reserve or guarantee tables on the patio. We have been opening our Nana doors as much as possible even in light rain. This is quite nice and it really opens up the dining rooms allowing the fresh air in.

While the host was seating me, I requested a quiet table. Instead I was seated next to kitchen; I was unhappy for the rest of the meal. The food was very good, and the wait staff were fine. After the restrictions on indoor dining, I expected a friendlier attitude, but that was reserved for “regulars.”

Happy to report that my concerns re: dining out at this moment in time were unwarranted as the safety procedures Harvest has taken were above and beyond. The most professional/friendly and talented staff you’ll find anywhere! Amazing food: radicchio Caesar gorgeous & delicious, raw bar SO fresh, Haddock entree outstanding, Agnolotti (homemade) light as a feather with bold flavor, sirloin quality on par with any high end steak house and Lobster Puttanesca rich and masterfully prepared. Wines suggested by Jason were unique and complimented our food impeccably. If that’s not enough for a perfect evening dining in the enclosed patio...desserts were over the top in both flavor and presentation. We split peach tart and almond cake amongst the 4 of us. This was such a memorable night out with my 28yr old daughter, wife and mother that certainly took our minds off the crises and challenges we are all currently facing. The experience has given us the confidence to continue supporting our restaurants safely.

Harvest just re-opened under our new and strict covid rules - this is one of our reliable and consistent choices, so we grabbed it. The only disappointment was the bread - they haven't as yet worked up all the usual offerings we've enjoyed in the past, but the rest of the meal was up to their usual standards, and they even had a decent wine list for these times. They've expanded their interior open space and opened all the windows in other regions, so they have a rather large dining capacity, which these days is unusual. Great to be back there, will continue to keep it in mind as always.
