There was some initial confusion about patio seating access for the reservation, but with how other party reservations worked out our party ended up seated in a small dining room by ourselves. Service was exceptionally helpful, safe, and patient during our meal, with fantastic recommendations. The food was incredible; entirely worth the trip. Even better, they provided a complimentary birthday dessert - a raspberry rose sorbet that was vegan-friendly for the birthday recipient, and another incredible little cheesecake for the rest of the table to split! Harvest has made it to my must-visit list for long after then pandemic is contained!

Harvest is always a wonderful experience. The food is innovative and delicious, the service impeccable by long-term staff and the ambiance in or out is beautiful and relaxing. A good place to meet and talk easily with old friends or special occassion birthday dinner... or just a casual wine and app on the patio. LOVE Harvest!

It might be that our standards are too high. We expected a quality meal, at this ‘high end’ restaurant. The menu was limited to a few meet and seafood entrees and one vegetarian option...a black bean and quinoa chili...at a high end restaurant? The cheapest ingredients for a$16 chili. It was unimpressive and we’re not coming back.

I'm sorry to read about your last experience with us and that we will not see you again. I will be contacting you in a private message with our Chef's email so that you may be able to connect with him. I'm sure he would like to hear more about your experience and any additional feedback you may have about our Lunch Menu. Our menus change seasonally and we continue to adapt with the current climate as it continues to change as well. Hopefully we connect! Thank you, Jeff Osowski General Manager

We enjoyed Valentines dinner at Harvest and the food and service was terrific. Our dining location was not terrific but the staff was excellent about masking and observing social distancing. We started with a very novel preparation of mussels in a curry/garbanzo bean combination that was so delicious. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli which had big chunks of claw and lobster in fresh ravioli and the most succulent sauce. I ordered Atlantic halibut which was served on a bed of mashed and fresh cauliflower which turned out to be a really fantastic combination as some of the cauliflower was fermented and the acid balanced the fish and really melded the flavors. The wine-by-the-glass was lacking in diversity with few standout wine options and only very ho-hum, compared to the food. All in all, we will definitely return but ask for preferred seating outside or in the main area. Bon appetite.

Yesterday on Valentine’s Day we celebrated our two year anniversary. We also recently got engaged. When I made the reservation on Open Table I made a note of this. For the first time ever, we were congratulated but everyone. From the voice message the left me confirming the time they congratulate us and thanks us for choosing them. When I called them back to confirm, I received another congratulations. When we walked in they wished us a happy anniversary. We got a complimentary drink. Everyone who walked over wished us a happy anniversary and congratulated us. Now the food.... FANTASTIC! The food is so amazing and light. Full of flavor and passion. The steak melted in our mouths and the ravioli were seasoned to perfection and tender. Chef Josh is a pastry genius when it came to the chocolate dessert we had. We can’t not rave about this establishment enough! Thank you thank you thank you! We can not wait to come back.

This was our 3rd time at Harvest and it was not as good as before. Service was poor. The server took my wife’s drink order and left before I could order. We had to ask to move tables since hostess station was right behind us - worried about health and safety with COVID since they were 1-2 feet behind us, they would face our way right behind us, and we heard all conversations between them and arriving guests. Steak was very good, but bread pudding was blah and tasteless. Halibut was very good, but balsamic vinegar made me cough several times.

Harvest is now my preferred home for fine dining - the host, waiter (Matthew), sommelier, and runners all made my girlfriend's birthday/graduation dinner excellent.

The menu was tantalizing, the waiter made a great recommendation of the wine, the sommelier treated us to an wonderful sherry pairing with our desert gratis, and the runners were patient, courteous, end efficient.

The social spacing was well done and we felt safe - it did not go unnoticed that a nearby empty table was sanitized after a guest left They're clearly taking covid seriously.

10/10 - I will go again

Harvest never disappoints - cocktails, food, and service haven't slipped at all during covid. We sat on the patio on a not freezing February late afternoon (sat down at 4:30) and the gas heaters were so warm that I took my coat off at one point.

It was a cold gray day, but we were determined to have some fun and some good food. We thought of the Harvest where we knew that we could find both, and we did.
We sat outside and we were the only ones to do so, but it was warm, with heaters galore, and comfortable and our servers took very nice care of us, made us feel welcome. And the food was excellent.
We left feeling refreshed and renewed.
We will be back soon.
