Waitress and wine steward very helpful. My friends, though, said the hostess was very stubborn about seating a party of six outside even though there were very few people there. She had to be talked into putting tables together but she eventually agreed.
We were so pleasantly surprised. Harvest met all the marks from very refined green tea, to perfect execution on the food. Service was top notch as well. We’ll be back.
Thank you very much for your compliments, we hope to see you soon!!
The food was fresh, interesting, beautiful, and tasty. The service was good, but a little pushy. We really liked the patio, but were eaten alive by mosquitoes.
The food is great and service impeccable. I am extremely sensitive to loud noise and I've remarked twice how comfortable it is to dine at Harvest.
I've dined at Harvest since the late 1970s, and it continues to maintain its high standard of delicious food, excellent service, and elegant setting.
I am giving this restaurant all high marks because everything was great. My only problem was how al dente the noodles were on the spaghetti carbonara was. I am sure that you can tell them to cook the noodles more. Great service, great patio. Highly recommend.
Our brunch entrees were delicious and generously portioned. The atmosphere was dignified and relaxing.
everything top notch, from the house made rolls to the extra little attention to detail that the better places do.
Always a classic venue for Harvard Square and Cambridge, and one of the best patios in the city.
Superbly curated food by professionals in your choice of 3 atmospheres. Customer rules.
Our meal was excellent. The experience was extremely enjoyable.
Lovely place to have lunch with my mother.
Delicious food and a very relaxed atmosphere with attentive service.
The entire experience was "fine," but not as special as I'd expected, even though we, fortunately, were seated outside. Outside was not as "outside" as I'd expected. I seem to recall Harvest having more charm and panache .... But the food and service were quite good ... even if the experience wasn't memorable.
Always amazing food from old standby - one of the few places in Harvard Square that has lasted decades - for good reason.
Food was too salty. Second glass of $17/glass wine arrived at the end of my meal. The place was not very busy. Perhaps they are still digging out from a long Covid shutdown but I have been here many times and it’s never been this way. Disappointed at the least. Problem is that so many restaurants closed in boston/cambridge that this one is a better one to get in to.
Hi Jim, I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your latest experience with us. We certainly set our service standards high, but sounds like we missed the mark. Regarding salty food, I hope you know you can always request no salt or let your server know that the food is too salty, we would be happy to remake it your your liking while you're still here. Thank you for your feedback. Warmest, Allison
Great food. Enough options for the vegans and carnivores in the group. Flavorful and fresh.
Excellent all around -- food, service, table. My companion had never been there before & now wants to return, making it her go-to restaurant.
Our son came in from out of town
We were so looking forward to dinner at Harvest, having enjoyed many phenomenal meals there in the past. Unfortunately, this one fell short of the mark. The service was good though slow. The food was solid but didn’t quite live up to the descriptions or the flavor profiles one normally experiences at Harvest. I’m going to chalk this dinner up to the challenges of the pandemic and hope that our next visit is better.
excellent food, and service. The lunch menu was a bit limited. But, what we got was excellent.
As always... Harvest is a great place to meet and eat... Wonderful food and perfect service.
Such a gem for brunch!!! Will be back soon. The waitstaff was exceptional and the food was phenomenal. The eggs benedict was one of the best i’ve ever had. Mimosas were not heavy on the OJ which was appreciated :)
Thank you for your compliments, we hope to see you soon!!
Great brunch menu and service. The waffle and chicken was amazing. Home fries not so much.
Our food was delicious! The lamb and vegetables were perfect, and the almond cake with strawberry was incredible. We really enjoyed our meal. Definitely will be back.
Thank you for your compliments, we hope to see you soon!!
The service was wonderful and the presentation as well.
It was a wonderful experience for the six of us and most eager to return.
Thank you, we hope to see you soon!!!
Tucked back in a little alley, the outdoor patio provided a little oasis of freshness, cozy and intimate. For quality was superb, as was the wine.
Thanks for choosing Harvest for your special occasion, we hope to see you again soon!!
The hostess was charming and very accommodating. Our one surprise/disappointment was how limited the menu was. In the past we had trouble choosing among the many gourmet offerings. This time we struggled to find something appealing to order. What we ate was well prepared but ordinary. Perhaps we should attribute the situation to post-Covid challenges.
Ate outside on the lovely patio. Harvest is still a gem
Harvest has been my anchor in Harvard square for 50 years. The restaurant has held fast to it’s original concept and focus on excellent fresh food ( and onto customers that have grown old with it!) and a staff of warming, caring people. Despite living on harbor in Boston, Harvest is and will always be my number 1 favorite restaurant in the state.
Thank you very much for your compliments and continued support, we hope to see you again soon.
Would have preferred a table in the "patio," but it was fine.
The food was very good-well prepared and beautifully presented.
My issue was with the service.
We were in the back room and it was freezing cold. My party of 4 ranged in age from 30-65 yrs and ranged in weight from 100lbs to 250lbs and we were all uncomfortable. When I told our server he responded that some people were warm. No offer to change our table, no accommodation at all.
There were other small misses but nothing to complain about.
The service industry has been hit hard this year and I tend to way overtip and in this case I kept it to 22%-hardly a penalty.
Extremely poor service. Have gone for 40 years. Will not go again.
Everything about our dinner was a fabulous experience. Service was impeccable; food five stars; Josh Adams, the pastry chef, prepared the BEST desserts I’ve ever tasted. I highly recommend this gem, tucked away in Boston, to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.
A wonderful spot that's a quiet find in Harvard Square. Plenty of outdoor and indoor seating and good food. Will definitely come back again.
Always great! Quality of the food was great and that pastry chef is amazing!
Can’t complain, Harvest is great. Loved our meal, great service, highly recommend.
Great food; ambience OK but not A+ ; It's a large place and was pretty full,
I enjoyed the meal which was pricy but I expectad that.
