My favorite restaurant in Cambridge! Always great service, great food.
Pre-concert dinner was great. Very attentive and knowledgeable service. Outstanding cuisine.
Fantastic dining experience. Been coming back for years and it seems to be even better every time!
We had an amazing family memorial dinner at Harvest. The staff was incredibly kind and understanding as my family experienced a wide range of emotions as we paid tribute to a family member that was scheduled to have dinner with us.
Now onto the food, various members had the crab bisque, the beet & brie plate and the salmon crudo plate for appetizers. They were all outstanding. For meals we had the monk fish, the strip steak special, Giannone chicken, whole wheat rigatoni and a shrimp cocktail. All were well flavored with well selected sides. The presentation of all of these dishes was incredible.
For dessert we selected the chocolate decadence plate and the lemon tart. The plates were wiped clean.
As we were walking away from the restaurant, we decided that this may become an annual journey for us to honor our lost family member and enjoy the delicious dishes at this lovely restaurant.
Harvest is reliably excellent. The food is exceptional, cocktails are some of the best in town, and the wine list seemingly has hundreds of options at all price ranges. I appreciate the various settings the restaurant has to offer, the bar is great but so are the restaurant seating areas and the patio. The staff and GM are personable and welcoming and offer a high level of hospitality without being pretentious. The desserts take it over the top, both inventive and delicious. I wish I could stop by and pick up a container of sorbet, it's that good.
Always a wonderful dining experience!!
My girlfriend and I enjoy Harvest. It never fails to deliver good food. She loves it there .
Food and service was great. Only three things that I didn't like: 1) bloody mary was watered down, not that great. 2) Women's bathroom stalls are tiny, my knees almost hit the stall door when seated, 3) They played the same 3 songs on repeat for most of our brunch, which was distracting.
We went to Harvest after purchasing a Gilt City voucher. Sat at the bar. Service was good, food was great. Drinks mediocre. Definitely want to come back in the warmer weather and sit outside on the gorgeous back patio.
Phenomenal experience! From the service to the atmosphere to every bite of food I had -- hands down the best birthday dinner I've ever had. Thank you so much!!
First time @ Harvest - very nice experience! great ambience, classy without pretention. I took my elderly parents out to lunch and they were very pleased. good service, and very good food.
Business lunch was quite bad. The service was very slow as well. Because I had a high expectation, I was quite disappointed.
Harvest is our restaurant of choice when we visit Cambridge, it is , pretty, friendly, comfortable and the food is creative, unfussy and always good.
Our dinner was good but not better than that. Service was intrusive; the wait staff was young and untrained. We wanted to talk; they wanted us to order and move along.
Great food! Can't wait to go back when the patio is open.
Server was great and energetic! Food taste great. The brunch menu was limited, but all four things we tried were great. Highly recommend the pastry board!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with friends and family. All our meals were tasty and well prepared. We especially liked the venison and risotto, as well as the seafood boil.
The food was excellent and so was the service. The venison rates among the best we have had.
My Mom saw this restaurant on a list of restaurants to check out in Massachusetts. We went for lunch and couldn’t be happier. The service was outstanding, atmosphere was great (fireplaces, plenty of room at your table) and the food was exceptional. Do yourself a favor and go here!!
The new lunch menu is not nearly as good as the old lunch menu! (please lose the greasy potato chips).
We chose this because it is near a concert we were attending at Sanders Theater, so we were dining early. The food was very good -- not super special, but very good. The service was pleasant but the wait for the main course was extremely long. Not dangerously so for our plans bc we left a lot of time, but it was very slow.
Had a great evening and meal. There over 2 hours and time stood still. Attentive but not intrusive waiter and unique food.
We dined at Harvest for Valentines day. The experience was wonderful. Food was top notch, ambience and staff were outstanding. We will be returning soon.
Food was fine but not very creative. Service was excellent. Very romantic ambiance.
Came here for a date night. Promptly shown to table. Ordered two cocktails, an appetizer, two entrees, and two sides, and we were asked if we wanted bread. Though we answered yes, it didn't ever come. Cocktails came promptly and were good. The appetizer of Beatrix brie arrived, and it was excellent and a highlight of the evening. As our appetizer was cleared, we ordered a second round of drinks to come with our entrees. Our entrees arrived a bit later, but our sides weren't there. We had to remind our waiter that we had ordered them, and though we had hoped they were merely forgotten in the window by the runner, they actually hadn't been put in at all. It took a good chunk of time for them to come out, at which point our half-eaten entrees had gotten a bit lukewarm. The carrot and goat cheese side was another highlight of the evening, but it would have been much more enjoyable matched with the entrees we wanted to mix it in with. Overall, inattentive and forgetful service negatively impacted what would have otherwise been a pretty excellent meal and rendered it just pretty good.
Nice setting, bland food. That sums it up. Harvest disappoints more than it delights these days.
We enjoyed out lunch. The cocktails were good. Our lobster rolls were fresh and delicious. Salads were tasty. Our server, Jasmine, was just right.
A happy dining experience all around.
Cheers to Harvest!
After all these years Harvest continues to deliver excellent and creative food. The staff is very helpful and attentive without being overly so.
Overall, a very nice evening.
We had to wait a bit too longs for the table, and the service was a bit off, but overall, it was lovely.
The most disappointing aspect was the bar-very inattentive and a bit brusque.
As my son is a bartender, I know the stress of that job, but also how it should be done...Friday night was not done properly!
Given that experience, I would NOT recommend sitting/eating at the bar.
Friendly staff, efficient and well timed service. Food was excellent, best monkfish I've ever had. Seafood tower appetizer tasted like they just jumped out of the water. Squash and burrata was unique in my experience, and delicious. Wonderful meal.
Celebrating birthdays with friends we picked Harvest. Our table was in the corner of a glass walled room with a view of the fireplace. From the bread, to the wine, dinner and dessert it was the best experience I’ve had in a long time.
Steak was delicious.
Waiter was aware of theater times and ensured timely service
I had not been to the harvest in over ten years. The have not skipped a beat. Great ambience. Great menu. Our waiter was attentive. I have always felt that I was at a special place whenever I have eaten there over the past 40 years.
From the moment we entered the a little out of the way restaurant we were treated warm friendly and professionally by all of the staff. We sat far from the open kitchen, a little quieter location but we were never ignored or left wanting of service. The wine list is excellent and extensive couple that with a very knowledgeable staff and wine selection was a most pleasant experience. We had several shared appetisers which were all very good particularly the pork pate’ . Main course were also excellent, stunning presentation and well balanced.
All and all a great dinner, in my opinion the best Harvard square has to offer.
Nice place - food could be significantly better
Food was absolutely amazing, from first course to dessert. Our server couldn't seem to be bothered with us. Our very standard meal, without alcohol, somehow took over 2 hours. The server kept mentioning and apologizing for "the delay" yet everyone around us seemed to be moved through with no hassle. Our pear galette dessert took 30 minutes to arrive after ordering. The server apologized after 20 minutes of waiting, but it still took another 10 to arrive. This was not warm, so it couldn't have been baked fresh. It was a tart with some ice cream, so nothing requiring fresh making. Our server no explanation whatsoever for this inexplicable delay and no offer to compensate. All of the tables around us received their desserts within minutes of ordering. It's really sad when the service can really sour the enjoyment of a meal at an institution that really should be an occasion.
We were headed to the ART with my parents. The evening was a Christmas present for them. We reserved at Harvest because it is near the ART and we did not want them to have to walk far from dinner.
I was very pleased with our waitress and the food. It was delicious and we made it out in plenty of time to get to the theater in a relaxed manner.
Excellent food and great service
We go there pre- theatre and always enjoy ourselves. They are most attentive to our time constraints and even give a discount for theatre goers!
We ordered the falafel sandwich for lunch, and strangely enough the falafel was the worst I ever had, greasy toasted bread, bland recipe, and chips out of bag, there was a spear of pickles with it, not at all the expected quality, we ended leaving half of it though we were famished
